Re: No no no I didn't think that! TofuEmmy

In reply to Jimminy Cricket!, posted by TofuEmmy on June 10, 2004, at 13:16:02

I don't think anyone saw themselves as defending me, only complimenting/supporting me because I put *MYSELF* down!

And I did not think you necessarily meant me only, and in any event I was not offended because I know this about myself already. I'm glad I can still be effective to some but I also know hands-down I lose others. But still, I did not feel singled out and when I said "Thanx girls" I actually meant you too, for reading my response then wanting to share your Fritos with me!!! I LOVE Fritos, but even more importantly, I took it as a sign of "I'm ok, you're ok." No problems at all! I can rake in good feelings from anyone noting to me that my style works for them (not that you disputed that either!), while also acknowledging any other views and seeing that it is not an either-or matter!

All good there? All is good here! Let's break Fritos! :- )

I'm sorry that you don't have time to answer each poster's questions individually. I feel dis-respected by that. I've felt that before though so it's nothing new. To combine snippets from three different writers into one answer seems to me to be typical of someone not wanting to go to too much trouble concerning something that is important to this board. Here come the I messages. I think you're full of it, Bob. I feel that your arrogance concerning your position of being the "administrator" is going to be your downfall. I believe that you court the little kissy-kissy group and you are threatened by those who don't necessarily fall into line with them. I hope that I'm not perceived as being civil and I truly hope that you are offended. I've given some thought to it and had discussion with colleagues and you just aren't worth the energy this is taking. You did not learn one thing from the other incident...unless it was more ways to be evasive. For all the good people who've left this place, hold on, I'm coming. (Sam the Sham)

I have another I message for Bob. It came to me this a.m. while having my coffee. I have too much self-respect to continue with the games here. (That is not to say that the others who post have less self-respect than I.) I just have that gut feeling that one of your goals is to reduce people to your level and I refuse to go along with that. All human beings deserve to be treated with dignity and I feel that certain personalities here aren't given that courtesy. It's a shame because we all have something unique to offer. Perhaps you don't want the uniqueness of certain posters to be accepted here. It's beyond the pale that you can't receive the people who have different views and approaches than yourself. I would think it would enrich your world but I see it as threatening to you. And that's just very sad. I close this with my real name, Pat, and not the name of my wonderful dog, Fayeroe. Adios, Amigos. (and no, this isn't like Cher's 10th farewell tour!! :-)

Thank you. I will write to you and keep you posted on my shopping for our date. I'm thinking pink tulle with little rosebuds scattered amuck on the daringly low bodice of the angel-type frock that I know I'll find.......

Pat, thanks for being a cause-carer and no-sh** bearer as long and well as you have!

I don't really think of myself as here anymore either, ha ha. I've learned at Babble that it is ok and probably best to protect one's own precious energy and mood resources first when possible. I may continue to contribute when genuinely inspired but maybe not, who knows. So if you don't see me over here holding the torch or doing so consistently, I know you'll understand. Maybe Jimi will be all refreshed to jump back in soon... or maybe not, but we'll certainly fully understand that too. And this'll all be taking some turn or another at the four week point, which is almost upon us.

Take care of yourself, and I know I don't have to say it, but we won't be *hoping* you stay gone! Would love to see you back, with the ebb and flow of inspiration; or to just breeze through the other boards and enjoy yourself cause-free. :- )

Pat,
I've always enjoyed reading your posts. I'm sorry that you have come to this point, as it will be a felt loss here. Please take care and know that you will be missed. Maybe we'll see you in Open sometime where all views are welcome.

Thanks to yahoo I have two ID's to give you: gardenergirl66 for IMing, and gardenergirl88 for email. Gotta love yahoo.

YEAH ME TOO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I want you to acknowledge the harm done by your negligent moderation. I may be particularly vulnerable (That is mine to deal with. But, considering the population here, it's yours to deal with, too.), but your unfairness has hurt me deeply.

YEAH ME TOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You ought not to treat me more harshly simply because I have asked you to treat us all the same.

THINK THAT'LL EVER HAPPEN???????????????

And you know very clearly what (and who) I'm talking about.

CONGRATSOS ON YOUR SPECIAL TREATMENT FROM BOB !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AT LEAST BOB AIN'T LONELY

Ah, OK, I can see that.

Reading and re-reading some posts doesn't mean others won't be missed...

> By the way, your "research" using this site was rejected by the IRB, right?

Well, they didn't approve what I submitted, so as I've been saying, this site is not currently considered research. I'm disappointed, but some posters prefer not being involved in research...
