Who the fuck uses "endowed" outside of a porno context? Anywho, have a little hooded one-eye Whittaker:





Oh and, GROUND YOUR OWN FUCKING REFERENCES PEOPLE!

Dude are you practicing for a poetry slam or something? It's actually not bad. Put it on youtube and make it sound angry.

Yeah, no. Just no. "Good sir" is another stupid one if you ever feel tempted to use it. (You haven't already have you?)

In my eyes, the storm we journey through never ends, the rain will not stop even if one cloud passes by it is soon filled in with another. The best thing we can do then, is share our umbrella with others.

There is also nothing to forgive Kineo, for no transgression occurred towards me.

Its probably best that you do not. For there is nothing to witness there other than my failure and perhaps my insanity.

Would you have preferred that I called her honey buns?

Okay that was just smarmy. Are you trapped in an episode of Downton Abbey? Should I call for help?

RE: Urgent! Jennybee is leaving!
Okay... I've just noticed this thread, and have taken the time to read through it all, and followed up on the allegedly insulting/inflammatory/improper/patronising comments made by others about the subject member.

—A few points come to my mind...

• I'm invariably wary of the reasons any long- or short-term member of any forum announces their intention to "leave" the forum. If one intends to do that, then normally one simply stops posting, and quietly goes away, and avoids any ongoing dramas—as has occurred here.

• I've seen this sort of "intent and response" equation apply on several other forums I inhabit, and normally I don't get involved—but as the subject member in this case has been a long-term, compassionate, constructive, and worthy part of the forums I find this particular scenario somewhat confusing in its origins and ongoing context.

• As per the more than usual scenario elsewhere, the "I'm leaving" posts attract a plethora of "oh, you're such a thoughtful, wonderful, articulate, friendly..... etc person. Please don't go!" responses. Call me cynical, but often this is nothing more than a cry for attention, or trawling for a "look at me, look at me" response. Or to massage one's ego because one is apparently so loved/respected/deserving/noble—as proved by the resulting rush of adulation.

• As far as I'm concerned, no single individual is more or less important to the overall success of a forum (excluding of course the trolls, the whack-jobs, and socks) than any other member. We all have our opinions (correct or otherwise) which should be considered fairly. Everybody is as worthy as any others in cyberspace until fairly judged to be otherwise.

• From what I've read here about the content of, and about, this thread, I have to say the apparent issue appears to me to be the proverbial "storm in a teacup". I know some people will disagree with this opinion, but so be it. Why has the thread run to more than a dozen pages (0620 AEDST 31/01) and resulted in people hurling personal insults and ad hominems at each other—which is totally off-topic anyway? Where are the moderators?

• I'm also confused as to why—other than the subject member themselves—this issue was raised by another member in the first place. If any forum member decides privately to leave a forum, should it be the right of somebody else "in the know" divulging that decision?

Consider

I'm not sure that making any of those points explicit is particularly productive. It's not like your sharing something everyone doesn't already know.

Unless stated otherwise, most of the forums have very open rules. You can pretty much say what you want as long as you do not threaten someone with physical harm, post nudity/porn, spam, or intentionally cause disruption. Other than that there is no moderation, threads can go off course, people can say mean things and those that do have to deal with the consequences. That is how this forum works and has always worked.

Consider

Point 1 , incorrect I know of at least one person who posted they were leaving and then actually did.
Point 2, no comment idk
Point 3 this persons positive and compassionate contributions to TTA render the responses more than valid.
Point 4 I agree entirely.
Point 5 Someone cared enough and was moved enough to post a thread of support and kindness, that's not a bad thing at all.

The reason I tell people I am leaving or taking a break or what have you is because in the past, when I have simply left the forum, I have had several members worry about me (including someone posting a thread saying they were worried about me). I don't like anyone to worry or feel bad or anything--that is just my nature--so I inform them I am leaving as opposed to just abruptly leaving. I would hope they would do the same for me. It is an online forum, but people make positive connections here with other people and do care if there is an absence--especially an abrupt one. For me, it's not as simple as pming 5 people at once(the limit in pm's)--because my buddy list is quite large and i would have to pm several times over the same message. Much easier to make a thread.

I appreciated KUSA's thread. Especially in this instance. It was very sweet.
