I'll try JB with you Ze! :o)
I'll look for you Kirsten! :o)
I've missed you too Mimi! I'll get an email out to you soon! :o)
Sorry for stirring this up again, (((Dave))). :o(
Glad to see you back Sultry. Sure did miss you. :)
Hiya Pooky! Sure did miss you too! Congratulations on your new-bundle-to-be! :o)
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*
and you (((((((((Tuppy))))))))
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.
And I always thought that I wasn't being "clique-esque" by staying at home playing video games all day. :-p~~~~~~~~
LOL, I wish... Ah, my beautiful vision for my future... maybe someday, when I retire... ;-)
(((Sultry))) Welcome back, I've missed you.
I've kept quiet until now, but I'd like to say that I agree with much of what has been said. I know that personally I can't always follow all conversations so often if/when I feel left out it is as much my fault as anyone's
