oh no Dominicus, with all due respect I don't feel the same way at all. You are welcome to feel the fluffy stuff and good for you.
To be very blunt, the more I read and learn and the longer I read replies from Members on ATS, the more I feel saddened.
I think of the old days when RiverGoddess and others (who have since died) were posting and now ATS has changed so much; there used to be a warmth and
that is lost. Maybe society has made us all colder, more politically correct etc.
for eg, some of the Members that used to be regulars don't log onto ATS. ET was one: He was a fireman that developed PTSD and my only hope for him,
is that he has lots of love in his life and things are going well. Some posts were absurd like mine and everyone else's but it was real and raw and
his truth or understanding of things at that point in time.
Queenannie... never see her posting on the boards anymore...and I hope everything is going well for her.
Mojoforsale? There are so many Members that used to post on ATS no longer post.
ATS has lost many great People, not just to death.
Maybe I need to accept that things change and make new friends but after a while, the more you lose, the less inclined you are to make friends.
Why, cos it leaves a big sink hole when they are not around anymore. I log in hoping to see a post from a friend...but there gone now.
I valued their contributions and their opinions... it isn't the same anymore.
