a reply to: Gordi The Drummer
I had two put my two cents in.
For my friends who's countries use other monetary systems, feel free to exchange the cents for some other practically worthless coin.
Now that I got my attempt at humor out of the way I would like to proceed to the serious point of the post.
I wholeheartedly support and agree with what Gordi posted here:
Original Gordi Post
He articulated much better than i would have done, what I have been thinking.
I've been following The Shed for a couple of years before i joined.
My wife joined a couple of years ago and I've read all the stories and posts and felt like I knew the members here before i ever joined.
Over the last several months (for health reasons) I have been reading Shed entries to my wife so she can keep up with the lives and Shed adventures of
I haven't done that for her now for several weeks.
Frankly the posts have been too numerous or off color and trivial to spend the time reciting them.
I am at fault for not always responding to everyone's posts.
But i do read them.
When I do respond I see my avatar appearing multiple times on a page.
Now there is nothing wrong with that I suppose,
but I feel like a little me goes a long way. lol
It's just not necessary to respond to every post.
Or fill pages up with random googled images about something they may not even been addressed to you.
I too have stepped back from the Shed recently because of various reasons.
One, I felt that anything i wrote would get buried behind endless pages of "Hey lol"
and "That made spill my drink".
Now these are harmless examples but multiplied a hundred times over literally a hundred pages and the urge to participate begins to diminish.
Two, I regret not mentioning this when it occurred, and I assume it was unintentional, but none the less,
several comments have been made over the days that i found very insulting towards my religious beliefs.
I don't proselytize, but please consider that others have deeply held beliefs possibly different than your own.
I respect yours and try not to challenge or diminish or insult them. Please extend the courtesy to others.
I'm sure i have three and four etc. but I'm tired and don't want to think about it.
Anyway, i love the Shed and I want to see it return to the world of caring and kindness and magic and fantasy that it has been for years.
I try to emphasize quality over quantity in my posts. I'm sure I don't succeed consistently, but i think folks can tell I care and try.
I think that's all we can ask of folks here. To care and try.
I've rambled now longer than usual and far too much.
I'll post this now...and immediately regret it.
