Wow, Shelly, that was certainly something I didn't expect. I do not recall ever intentionally excluding someone from my posts during a conversation in a chat area.

If I have given that impression, I apologize. I chat in the chat areas on occasion, and have found myself often not even posting at all to avoid the very thing Gumbie was worried about... running off very quickly with little or no notice. I get numerous interuptions and often don't even have the 5 seconds necessary to type a "see ya" or "brb" post. So when someone disappears and never responds that is NOT what I was referring to. If this is in question, perhaps I could give you the names of the people from MN that are my close friends and they can tell you much the same story of how I have to suddenly leave on AIM, and have looooong pauses. Fortunately, they do understand, as I do when they have sudden departures.

I am astonished at your reaction especially since I don't recall having much interaction with you outside of the Debate folder, and in fact was not targeting anyone particular at all. I quite like pretty much everyone on MN, and was just expressing a similar impression as many of those that posted here in this folder on this topic. I'm not quite sure why I got so harshly jumped when others feel the same way...

Sorry for stirring this up again, (((Dave))). :o(

Thwart. Thwart thwart thwart thwart thwart. Wow, say a word enough times and it really sounds silly.

Glad to see you back Sultry. Sure did miss you. :)

I'd just like to say; I'm in a brilliant mood [had a great birthday :o)] and I find it sad to see so many arguments here. :o(

I know I'm guilty of all the above and I'm truly sorry.

We all feel left out sometimes, I guess, but please just shake hands and be friends again? :o)

Hi daffy! Glad you had a great birthday! :o) I had a pretty great one too. :o)

I didn't intend to not be friends with anyone and didn't mean my words harshly. I'd love the tension to be dropped.

*no tension on my side*

The higher the pedestal you put someone on, the farther you grow from them

Every morning, we are given 24 golden hours. Even if you had all the money in the world, you couldn't buy another one. They are one of the few things in this world that are truly free. Spend them wisely.

RE: is this place clique-esque? yes.

Is that a bad thing? no, because the groups are not exclusive. For example, I can leave posts that I know only certain people will understand (i.e. my video game conversations with Anthony or Arbron); but I'm willing to respond to any further posting questioning what I just wrote.

People naturally tend to seperate themselves into sub-groupings over common interests (be it time zones, topics, age, whatever). The same division happens in all gatherings of people - be it work, school, friends, or anywhere else. If those groups are restrictive as to who they allow to interact with them, then it is a bad thing.

We don't really have that situation here. Yes there are sub-groups, but none (as far as I can tell) are restrictive. Confusing at times, yes; but not exclusive.

I've only been in here for the past few months, and I've already had a few "mis-understandings" with one or two members, but they got resolved, and conversation resumed. I've also had some nice discussions with people that I'd newly met. As far as I can tell, there are no real obstacles to anyone getting into any posting (with certain limits, of course - language abuse, racism, etc... that get moderated) reguardless of what 'grouping' they regularly converse with.
