    Just take breaks when you feel like that.  One doesn't have to declare loyalty to a website.  Come here.  If you are not having fun log out and do something else.  When other sites close and we get an influx of members from it we always have some pain.  Usually the ones who fit in stay and the others leave.  Sometimes I come here regularly and sometimes less frequently, based on the enjoyment level.  :) This post was edited by Thriftymaid at February 13, 2019 2:36 PM MST

    I don't care if it is something that is real or not, I am so sorry you feel that way.  I never wanted you to ever feel badly about anything I have thrown your way.    

    Do not feel bad.  We all get the same treatment.  When we debate, it happens.  Especially when the opinions are so life-threatening as these topics are.    I hate hurting anyone.  HATE it.  The reason I loathe Trump is because he does not care about hurting anyone.

    I happen to know they have. Awhile back I invited a FB friend to check out AM - they did and they signed up then they made 3 posts that were quickly picked apart by grammar Nazi's so that person doesn't come here anymore. But maybe it's a good thing because that person walks the East side of Vancouver at night handing out coffee and sandwiches to the homeless - if they were here trying to have fun somebody might miss out on a sandwich. Cheers!

    Some people on this website are cray-cray. No wonder Answermug seems to be a revolving door. I guess I have way too much hope that adults can discuss things rationally.

    They no longer exist. This site is less cray-cray.

    Please let me know if you know of anyone whom I may have scared.
    My whole life thus far -- seems like I've never been able to scare anyone.
    :)

    Someone once told me "You're the least intimidating person I know."

    You and that person are probably right.

    It's not always been to my advantage to be 'un-intimidating,' though, it seems to me. But I am whom I am, I guess.

    I read your reply the other day, easyjolene, and I didn't think of an adequate reply. I still can't think of one other than I really appreciate it. Thank you very much.

    I don't care for the arrogant and pushy.  I get that way when others are behaving in that manner because I don't want to give in to them.  But you are really the way to go.   That is the path of peace.

    Madness, I think this is a great crowd here.  The only person I've had problems with is DonBarzini.  He got all hateful on me because I wouldn't go into business with him and the Tattaglias.

    Oh.   You should have talked to me.  I have dirt on him.   Just like The Donald, I have pictures of him flirting with the likes of Russian Mail Order Brides.  

    He's married and he doesn't want me to Bezos on him.   I mean he doesn't want me to Pecker his butt.
