I don't know whether to think of your post as a funny joke and laugh, or to panic.

You're kidding, right?


I would go with the 'panic' option.

I just used the Masonic Hotline to Hollywood and contacted her publicist who is preparing a statement that Janet is in fact not a dude and will prove it on live television in an effort to refute your claims. This may occur after youor bedtime so ask you parents nicely if you can view this spectacle.

I've always wondered why anyone cares how many stars they get.

You can pretty much not take anything he says seriously. Seriously.

Yeah I cared for the first 100 then forgot all about them, though I do occasionally see a pre-2006 member that didn't get the star glitch and feel bad for them hahaha.

You must have a lot of good posts, but not many threads. 870 posts and 3258 stars. That's a lot. How come you have less flags than me? It should be vice versa. You should have 200 flags at least!

I wasn't trying to be mean.

I gave you the best response I could from someone who was a teenager who didn't see eye to eye with her parents, particularly her mother, and is now a mother herself, and has also worked with kids, particularly young teens, at most stages of my life.

What I was trying to be was honest.

For the record I like that about you.
I may disagree a lot of the time but you are consistent and say it as you feel it.
I like that

Nothing?

Not even that time when I told DBCowboy he was a handsome devil?

Because I rarely start threads, and the ones I have started are never current events or in popular forums.

Erm ... good posts ... yeah ...

A lot of my stars are from being witty and antagonistic, I'm not proud of it, but on the other side of the coin - a lot of the people merited that type of response and in a way that's part of my personality I guess. I'm working on it.

Don't listen to her kid, she would let you get into all kinds of legal troubles with Janet for calling her a dude where I can help prevent all that stuff from happening.

Dude, I'll tell you what I tell my son, and my wife, and some of my son's friends who apologize way too much--don't apologize for things when there is absolutely nothing for which you should be apologizing.

Look, you're not always going to get the responses that you want, and you're definitely not going to meet people on an internet forum who will generally have your best interest at heart (or even care about how their words may affect you). But that's okay, because that is a sample of life in general, and you will not always hear or encounter things that give you a warm, fuzzy feeling.

That said, if people are outright rude and disrespectful, the best thing to do is just ignore it--tell yourself that they must have had a crappy life and are trying to hide behind a computer screen and take it out on everyone else in order to make themselves feel better. Then, instead of replying, just move on to the next comment and forget that person even said anything. It's easy if you train yourself to realize that it's not worth your time nor your aggravation.

You'll be alright.

Well... he is a handsome thing... okay, just that one time.

Keep you head up, look everyone you come across dead in the eye with a stern look, and smile at all the old people.

Remember a scurvy dog learns how to survive. You will be ok. Just need to learn to let certain things just roll off your shoulders.

In my nine or so years here this has just moved to the top of my 'all time best advice ever given out' list.

Thank you for contributing to the quality of our forums.

That thread I posted is not "quality".. It should be in the trash bin. Is that message legitimate?


If I were to take a guess I would say that DToM, who is a very nice person, is trying to encourage you to not feel bad and maybe go and speak with your parents regarding what was troubling you.


You get an applause for generating discussion. Doesn't matter the topic, whether it's good, bad, or ugly. As long as people are scrambling at the keyboards, that will usually earn some applause.

OP has cracked the code apparently



Now me? I'm a certified threadkiller...

I must have been AFK for a while. I was having some tutor lessons. I really appreciate the positive attitude in this thread. This is by far the best thread I have. Maybe in an hour or so I'll create a new thread in "General Chit-Chat" that contains my aircraft pictures. I'll have to upload them all. It's gonna take some time.

Oh crap, my favorite show is on from 8:00 - 9:00. It's Night Court. I love that show so much!

I'm thinking about changing my signature (below) to my website logo. I'm gonna do it now.

I'm quoting that and replacing my Steve Jobs quote with that.
