Hi folks, the hard edge some folks are taking is poisoning the board. Quit being mean if its you. I got this today:

There are some vicious people on this board. I was so disappointed this week I was thinking about boycotting for a while.

This board is for helping folks answer questions, not to jump all over them and demand ID and question their motives. That turns off anyone. If you cannot do that, and have throw punches and declare superiority over folks, then go elsewhere. I mean it. I will be pulling privileges if you cannot mellow out.

I am so sorry that you have to go through this Marty. It's really unfortunate that there are people who take great delight in wreaking havoc frown


Newfoundlanders are the only people in heaven who want to go home.

Well, I haven't seen the mean comments much as I guess as I only look at a few topics. But it's a shame that's going on. Some peeps just have to be cyber bullies as they can't do it they can't go "mano y mano." I had 30 years of fighting. Thats enough.

Now I'm geting ready to go feed and pet my dog. Feed and pet my cat. Watch them chase each other around a bit as the sun rises (they like to race each other). Then check on the pumpkins, water mellons, ocra and bananas. Come back for breakfast and kiss the old hen, er, I mean the woman. But I might have to be mean to some ants if they keep biting me.

There is lots of good info and contact on here. Makes for a nice diversion too for a break after fishing or working all day.... you got a cool site here!

Marty, I agree and I will promise to do my utmost to stay nice. I just have a real problem with prejudice and racist statements.

I have a friend who writes funky poems - today she sent me this bit of satire about gossip in small towns. It may be appropriate to this thread -


DRAMAVILLE

Welcome to Dramaville/
Land of many tears/
Every little upset/
Can go on for years/
Welcome to Dramaville/
Where things are never rosy/
Where friends cannot be counted on/
Except that they'll be nosy
In Dramaville the cup's half full/
The soundtrack's heavy sighing/
And in this town/
folks come around/
To find out who is dying/
If you've got an illness/
Or just a bloody debt/
Dramaville can't get its fill/
Of just how bad it'll get/
Gossip is the grease/
Which keeps the drama going/
Forget the facts/ base your attacks/
On what folks think they're knowing/


Author - "Imo" Abraham
