    What I've just seen Dilznick do to windy is an outrage.

    The words "post whore" and other unkind epithets have been used to describe her. Well everyone's interest in this site varies. We're all different. I've never once seen windy be unkind to anyone yet those arrogant few who'd limit her posting seem to think the "nice gal" in the group needs to be stopped. "Post whore"?? ... how very internet.

    Yikes. Unkindess reigns supreme... and they call me "haughty":rolleyes:

    Holy Christ people! This is too unkind for words. Simply ignore her if you find windy offensive or superfluous in any way but to publically humiliate her and accuse her of a mental disorder is outrageous and says volumes more about the accusor than the accusee.

    Windy simply likes to lighten things up. She's cooled my jets more often than I can tell you. She's a decent sort and deserves better from this board in my considered opinion.

    I have had considerable conversation with her outside of this public forum and I can tell you that (perhaps with the single exception of Webster) she's got to be one of the kindest and most sincere human beings I have met on the internet.

    Those who'd censor her come off looking like controlling jerks.

    This board needs some levity and lightness from time to time and "windtalkerways" provides that service for some of us very well.

    To the rest of you who don't enjoy her? IGNORE HER!

    Pretty simple, eh?

    Thank you Stronzo.

    Your words mean more than you
    can even imagine.

    The ONLY reason I posted alot
    last night was because Alex
    said he wouldn't return his avi
    until the Holocaust thread was
    off the first page of the Et Cetera
    Forum...so I did it for two reasons.

    A) I thought if Alex felt that strongly
    about the topic, it needed to disappear.

    B) It was just for a lark...I was in a silly
    mood, as someone I miss is coming back
    today, so I thought I'd just have a bit
    of fun.

    As I said when I first joined his site...I
    have NEVER in the five years and various
    boards to which I post EVER had people
    mention how often ANYONE posts and
    this only illustrates the petty, small-minded
    mind set of the people who pass comment.

    Windy?

    I'm in shock. I haven't a clue what motivates unkind people. I'll never truly understand it, but I'm beginning to strongly rethink my involvement on this board.

    You are one in a million and, in my considered opinion, a huge asset to LPSG.

    I'm sorry people suck so badly.

    Big hug, R.

    Dear Stronzo...the kind people on this
    board by far outweigh the nasty ones.

    Last night was a one-off. I have already
    made my specific reason quite clear.

    I will continue to post jokes and tests, etc
    as I think people do enjoy them.

    I will also continue to banter with all the
    many people I consider friends here at
    the site.

    I suppose I could be banned for being too
    friendly.

    I joined this group a couple of weeks before Windy did, and the group had lost some of my interest with the huge "fake death" affair dominating the board. Then like a breath of fresh air, Windy swept into our lives, and all at once things started to look up again.

    Here is a woman with wisdom, kindness and class. Her little quips genuinely worthy of a smile. With a few kind words she can brighten your day, make you feel a little more human, little less like a robot. As for the links to various cartoons, the corny jokes... I like most of 'em, but I'm still smiling when I groan at the others.

    If she hadn't arrived would I have left...who knows? Does she keep me coming back looking for her latest post?... Definitely.

    That's the girl!

    And should you be deemed too nice or light-hearted to remain, I'll take your hand as we (the bannished) walk away from those elevated few who truly have something of benefit to give to LPSG...:rolleyes: :wink:

    My uncle has a great expression: "don't let the bastards get to you".

    It appears you've already heard of it.

    Hmm, not exactly true. Weren't we graced with your presense because you made yourself unwelcome somewhere else? Sorry, gotta call bullshit here.

    I love having you here and respect you, so don't let anyone get you down. You do post a lot but I'd never censure anyone for that.

    That said, I'd prefer to see the themes in the right place when I browse. Even if you think you have a good reason. :biggrin1:



    Stronzo, Alex8 and EnglishGentleman: I enjoy your contributions, it all adds immensely to my viewing pleasure.

    Thank you, Rawbone.

    The feeling is mutual.

    Last night was an exception to
    putting topics in the wrong spot.

    But thank you for your kind words.

    I have to say, that I'm entirely baffled by this. I've only seen Windy express kindness toward others.

    As far as the number of her posts go, I REALLY don't understand the attention people pay to the number of posts on this site, save when someone with 2 posts act like they own the place. It's not like Windy is just posting a whole list of "me too"s in the threads. All of her posts, that I've seen, even when one-liners, are at least full, thoughtful sentences.

    What exactly are you trying to accomplish Jana?

    Do you realize how you appear? It occurs to me that perhaps you've done enough damage for one day.

    One other quick note... There are others that have flooded the threads with posts, sometimes with nothing more that a smilie in their post, and I haven't seen them called out on it. Why is this suddenly an issue with Windy?

    Did Dilznick take it up with WTW before posting his thread? I don't know for sure, but I doubt it. A taste of his own medicine, as far as I'm concerned.

    You know that I'm with you, Windtalkerways.
    If you check out the posting history of your attacker, you'll see that his reputation is one of being a racist misogynistic homophobic cranky old bitch.
    For some reason, this bitter, angry old TROLL is allowed to regularly attack fellow members without action from the moderators.

    Don't change your posting habits, Windtalkerways. You are a breath of fresh air around here.

    You know I admire your humor, intelligence, kindness, incredibly big heart, and your patience.

    Maybe he's just jealous.

    Please, Windy, don't let this get you down!! You are the best thing to happen to this board since I joined in 2004. Keep posting - the more, the better. You are smart, articulate, creative, and always kind - always!! Maybe that is what some dislike. Disregard them.

    Good idea, MR. MODERATOR.
    Why don't you.
