reply to post by Hefficide
I do not pay attention to borders & numbers, I want your mind - but I wanted to get your attention & I know that one works.
"Your", in this instance is the group, not the individual. In saying that, you Heff, bounced straight past my comment and continued your discussion
with Tenth. Initially it did not bother me in the slightest after all this is a forum & you were having a particular discussion, you'll get back to
me (or Slayer or someone....maybe) but as the hours progressed and the banter continued I started to think I had written something so stupid it was
simply not worth "your" effort.
There was a definite discussion going on amongst you all - sure the replies were one-on-one, but consensus and overlap of ideas were apparent.
If you only knew who many times, once again, that I edited and re-edited that post you would laugh hard - you copped the biggest mention a few times
simply because I know you the most out of all 6 and you are a straight shooter, well to me you are anyway.
No, anger is not the right emotion, embarrassment coupled with envy and disappointment would be more accurate - I wanted in on the conversation and
that was not forthcoming so I left.
My mistake, it seems, was replying to Slayer directly, instead of replying to the thread - noted for future reference. It was his thread and his
particular comment that drew me in but the theme of my reply was open for all - but I see your point.
Look, you and I are not too dissimilar - in many ways, right down to your % comment actually. I spend 4 weeks at a time a sea and the site has become
my home. I have read so much of what the 6 of you write (and have written) that you have become my family - each individual writing style paints a
clear picture for me:
Slayer with his lazer guns
You with your philosophic banter
Neo keeping it real
Tenth the quintessential Mod
Bezz because everything is a piss take
Sonny because of his intellect
(Sonny and Neo are the only 2 I have not directly conversed with but I have read much of their stuff via their profile pages)
I took it personally when I did not get a response - this is the downside of non face-to-face discussions.
Next time I'll pull out a can of harden the hell up - and drink it in full measure.
Thanks for the reply mate its appreciated.
(laugh - count how many times you wrote the word "border" in your reply to me - I know your achilles heel
