Did we drive away Onslow as well? Where the fuck is everyone going?
Gosh I hope not... Snoozan cleared out her gallery again as well...
So... LPD, ChicagoSam, Onslow, and Snoozan... four highly respected members of OUR community have left... because of the shit that this site has turned into. I've been thinking about leaving for a month or so now. This place sucks, to be quite honest. All people do is argue over stupid bullshit. I used to come to LPSG because it made me feel good... now I come here because it's part of "going through the motions" and as soon as I logon, I wonder why the fuck I even bothered. Just more posts of people thrashing each other.
It has gotten quite petty here lately. Sad...very sad, indeed, and all uncalled for.
I know... I've been bad lately... things will start looking up again when school starts.
I'm not talkin' about you... you haven't been causing near the amount of bullshit as other people.
Don't worry, it's the usual ebb and flow of the board. There's periods of drama, then no drama, and then drama again. Some members threaten to leave, some do, some come back as someone else, etc. It's just part of "As lpsg.org Turns" drama.
I've never seen it even CLOSE to being this bad before, and I've heard several other members (who have been here longer) state that as well.
I think distance softens. As we get further away from past drama, it seems less dramatic. It's been at least this bad before.
I hope things do get better. I'm not ready to leave but I have left other groups because of online bickering, most of which I was in the middle of.
I think the difference here is that I am not in the middle of any of the bickering here. I hope to keep it that way.
Guys, things really do go in cycles here. It has absolutely been both this venomous and this troll-filled at times, but that passes. The key is that you have to be a part of making it better by what you contribute. Each one of us should really think about whether we are steering things in the direction we'd like to see them go, or dragging things further down with negativity.
I know that some of those people you mentioned will be back, Meg. And others that have left as well. I wouldn't still be here myself if I hadn't taken some time away.
I hope all the above are true. I'm still new, but have been kind of surprised as some of the angry posts that come out of no where in the lightest of threads. I stayed away for a couple of days and came back just in case it was a bad week thing. I really enjoy this forum and find the people and posts intelligent, funny and interesting. I hope it gets better and that the experienced posters don't leave!!
I certainly hope Onslow and Snoozan will be back. Those were two very wonderful and highly enjoyable people here. I'll miss them in their absence. Meg and NJQT, I would you miss you both as well, if you guys left. So please don't!:biggrin::smile:
Quite a few of the people who were the regular and popular posters when I first joined are no longer here. Sure, it's different without them here, and I miss almost all of them, but I can't say it enough that many new and wonderful people have joined in their absence, who provide me with just as much reason to like being here.
I suppose we can become attached to people and feel when they leave that the place is not the same, or even of lesser quality, without them. However, while I can't really argue about the place having a different feel without certain members, I do argue about it being of lesser quality without them.
I truly think that we've gained even more bright and wonderful posters than we've lost. At least in the time I've been a member of LPSG.
Having said that, I hope no more people who I truly enjoy will be leaving LPSG!
Quoted for Truthiness
It's good to know people will come back. I have enjoyed reading Onslow's posts and believe it would be a shame if he did quit.
p.s. Glad to see your corset picture back up. Beautiful face as well, but that corset is smokin'!
Tee hee hee you said truthiness. :tongue: I like Steven Colbert. :biggrin1:
I like Jon better. :biggrin1:
I like Stephen; but I LOVE John. As you can see I just changed my avatar to reflect that. :smile:
That is AWSOME! :biggrin1:
Via la Jon Stewart!
