I just read the whole David's point about
sometimes people feeling left out
thing is that I'm new around as a member. I
used to just visit the online mystery., but
recently I got involve in a MP by chance..
and one thing led to another.. and now I'm
I hope I'm making any sense..
anyways. I agree with most of the comments
that everyone has made.... I sometimes
don't know what some people are talking
about.. but as they might know by now... I
tend to be a little tiny noisy..
post a comment if they answer fine, if they
don't is fine too.. maybe it was
inapropiate on my part, or maybe to the
intended person missed the comment.
Even though I'm
a "new" memeber.. People has been pretty
friendly toward me, and when they
dissapear.. I just know that something must
have came up.. like it happens to me
So to conclude this long
opinion.... like someone else said, don't
remember who..(sorry about that) is just
how much time are
you willing to spend here, and express your
ideas, so others can respond to them. Of
course, in the appropiate folders. I think
the fact that the topics are divided by
folders, mades them "board" oriented.
think I said enough.. so Somebody STOP
There are two words that can also explain why someone might think they are being excluded from a conversation... guerrilla postings.
This activity, in which I am currently engaged, and generally assume credit for naming, is in fact, simply use of a BBS as a bulletin board, rather than a chat. Such posts are typically rhetorical.
Also, it is sometimes, that there is really no conversation. If the appearances of some parties are less frequent than others, dozens of posts may occur in the interim. This can make reference to a previous post seem exclusive, as that post may have been noted by only a limited number of members.
I think a lot of people notice your posts.
Wow, I'm glad Dave was brave enough to bring this discussion to the forefront of people's minds. It may have been noticed (or maybe not) that I post even less than I used to...especially in Social Lounge. I'm not angry but it can be a little depressing when I come into the Kitchen, for example, and say "Hi Everyone" and try to carry a conversation with 6 or so people that are already there. Heck, I try to follow the current thread. I get a bunch of "Hi (((Sultry)))" but then the conversation totally excludes me even if I make a comment or have a question about the current topic! It's depressing when I'm ignored repeatedly in the Chat folders, no matter what I try or what I say. Honestly, I've been really feeling that either a lot of people here hate me, or that the main posters in the Social Lounge chat folders are kinda self-centered since so often non-regular SL posters are excluded. I didn't realize I wasn't more than a handful of those experiencing this.
I see this discussion was several weeks a go, so cool. I think I'll actually venture back into Kitchen and see if anyone will actually acknowledge my posts with more than a hi, then nothing... even if I try to post for an hour or more. Perhaps this is all changed. I had loved MN so much... but I don't like going to a SL where I feel I'm ignored because I'm not part of the "right" group and make it to a bunch of gatherings. And please, I don't expect to be catered to or get over-enthusiastic hi's and attempts at making me see how much people are trying. I'd just like to be able to be a regular "part" of a conversation and not an ignored observer.
Sad part is I really like all the people that I feel the most left out by... :o(
Anyway... I'll give it a chance again. :o) And if I'm ignored as I have been repeatedly in the past, then at least I can search out those that have posted here and felt ignored also... and we can have a friendly conversation where we're all included. :o)
That's why I've committed to JB...
Sultry, I love talking to you. Hop on IM anytime. I am here quite a bit.
