Miscellaneous Reactions to the Board-Long

Posted by shellie on November 12, 2000, at 9:42:27

Just wanted to share two reactions I have to the PB board. They may or may not be of interest to anyone--

First: This is probably due to some deficient element in my head, but it is also related to one of Dr. Bob's survey questions. I find it a lot more difficult to feel like I know ("know") people on the board who don't use regular names. Like "know" in the sense that I can keep track of who they are from prior messages. For example, I was greatly relieved when chdurie2 became Caroline to me. (Forgive me Caroline, if you don't appreciate being an example). Ksvt, I really like reading your posts, but I have had a harder time with continuity, although I am trying really hard. (Maybe I'll just name you!). I also have a harder time with symbolic names, not so much in continuity, but in imagining a real person. Please, please, please, this is not a criticism, just a personal observation which I take full responsibility for having. Really!

Second: This is one I know, I just have to live with, but it is frustrating to me, and I am curious if anyone else finds it frustrating. I want to preface by saying I am coming to terms with it because it is just what it is. But that is when someone asks for advise about a specific situation, lots of posters respond, and then we never hear from the original poster again. I always feel very good (even when I'm not involved in the thread) when people acknowlege others input, and particularly when they share the resolution of the issue. (Whether or not they follow advise given to them).

Anyway, I am having a very spacey Sunday morning, so please forgive my indulgences and my run-on sentences.
