I know I post sporadically at best.
But I read a lot of the posts. However, often I do not reply to people. There are several reasons.
1. I am not feeling up to posting at all
2. I feel I will do a person no good & even harm them by posting
3. I have nothing to say
4. I don't want to say the wrong thing to a person I am not acquainted with
2 & 4 are the most likely factors that will lead me to contribute posts towards people I know, and to "ignore" the people I don't know. It isn't that there is a popularity contest occurring, it's just that I know the boundaries with certain ppl - I know what i can say, and what I can't say, and I know that they won't judge me.
I truly don't mean to ignore ppl.
I apologise if I have done this to anyone. I'm sure a lot of other posters feel the same way I do. Sometimes it is just too difficult to post because there are too many factors standing in my way.
I hope to see you back on the board soon.
Best wishes to you,
