Ditto to what the others posted. Stick with us and we can all learn together. I left an AOL chat room on account of this kind of stuff... people taking themselves too seriously, etc. It's Christmas, time for forgiving and forgetting! And we all need you out at the barn tonight where we'll be singing Silent Night to the critters.

That's kinda strange. When I view the whole thread, your comments aren't there. When I hit reply, it's there.

Anyway, I agree with the others. And besides, what am I gonna do without taters???

Hogman******* RETURN TO ME,OH MY DA...........    Posted 12-23-2002 at 19:10:16       [Reply]  [No Email]
Just imagine Dino singin it........
EI Ya ain't got no reason no how ta stay away specialy after Gregs post and I think it could stand alone as reason enough. Add to that the proclaimed feelings of all We others and You have no excuse,non whatsoever so there!

We miss Ya big like a river and that does include Dennis so for Our sakes come on back We luv Ya.....

I'm sorry...    Posted 12-23-2002 at 18:08:24       [Reply]  [Send Email]
When I looked at that post after I submitted it I regretted it immediately. If I could take it back I would surely tone it down some.

You are not entirely innocent here though. You were rude and defensive in more then one reply to Bill's posts. Regardless of whether or not we agree with Bill's opinions he should be treated with the same respect he shows others. His opinions were unpopular (to say the least) but they were presented in a calm, respectful manner, which didn't deserve the abuse, and bullying he received from you and others. The aim of my rash actions was to give you some of your own medicine.

"Personally I believe the beginning of the end of this board was when you showed up"...

That comment was far harsher then I intended it to be. I do believe that a lot of the chat stuff coincided with your arrival. I ALSO believe (and have posted this belief in earlier threads with my name) that I never had a real problem with it because this isn't my site and you are free to do as you wish until the moderator says different.

"You have a rainbow day full of warm fuzzies and all that crap"

I should not have ridiculed your send-off. It had nothing to do with making my point. It was just mean spirited.

I want to sincerely apologize for hurting your feelings and causing you to leave the board.

I had a problem with your behavior and I let my emotions get the best of me. I know that it doesn’t matter one iota what I think of your behavior and that it is not my place to address it.

I failed again in my never-ending battle to keep my mouth shut.

Please don't let an ignorant redneck like myself run you off.

You might as well come back EI, you can't hide we are watching you and everyone else, we have still kept your file.

Umm...    Posted 12-23-2002 at 16:29:53       [Reply]  [Send Email]

I do not know you, and you do not know me...

What I do know is that I am one of those that tries to stay away from commenting on posts that I do not like, ones that try to rile me, or ones that I find 'chatty' on the boards...Stuff that I feel could be taken care of in e-Mails or in a 'chat' room, as well, if not standards are my own...I try not to hold my standards to anyone else, because they are own...

That said...

I firmly believe that you have every right to post and enjoy this site as much as I or any other person that comes here...Please do not leave because of this...

It would be a shame to lose your exuberance and enthusiasm due to the anonymous post of someone else...

I do grant that the poster seemed sincere in their feelings, but by not posting at least a recognizable handle, they negated their arguement...

Kraig WY I Don't buy it,    Posted 12-23-2002 at 16:04:07       [Reply]  [No Email]
You have too much sand for that kind of nosense.

Better watch out, I pass buy your place too often (to see my mother & brother) to let you get buy with this.

Be warned, in my up bring I have a lot of experience in cutting switches (mother use to make me cut my own).

I need my morning humor, so best come back.

EI, I just stopped by for a minute and saw your post. I suspected something like this was why you weren't around, but was hoping you were just busy with the holiday stuff, as I have been.

Don't let minority opinions get to you. It's impossible to please everybody all the time, but you DO have a LOT of friends here who miss you. And the ones that don't miss you can go read something else or go suck eggs. Right? You have just as much right here as anyone and that post was just one opinion. And you know what they say about opinions. :)

COME ON BACK< EIEIO!!! We need ya around here. Besides, if ya don't you'll never get to NOT BEING A GREENHORN!! Remember you was gettin' close to not bein' one no more. You only have 11 or 12 years to go and that's too close to dropout now. Put on some new duct tape (specially on your left ankle) and come back. We DO miss you!!

Aww heck lady, don't pay them no mind. If somebody can't stand up and put their own name on something they're weak and worthless.
This comes around every so often, don't get riled up. There are those who just want to use the entirety of the internet as hate posting about something, positive people are hard to time.
I'm with Fawteen, I don't read all the posts and I sure don't reply to most of them. If something gets me riled I'll most likely leave it alone, its got to be something pretty ugly to get me going.

Keep on posting, this is a free space and you've got your friends here.
