Has to be the award winning is NO greater site for social networking.

msn fark leenks foobies (keep that to yourself) LJWorld bing google I agree with grisgris about FB. I also got rid of it.

The 'vast wasteland' has expanded way beyond TV.

So sorry guys and gals, Ole Roe was outa town for a day or so. thuja and faceit didn't have me to kick around so some of the rest of you had to take the hit.

RoeDapple 6 years, 1 month ago

I'm back now though, so . . . bring it!!

RoeDapple 6 years, 1 month ago

By the way faceit . . . as per your pm. Wrong on every count but you keep believing what you want.

Don't pm me again. I much prefer you as a troll, keep your analysis to yourself.

So glad you can speak for the rest of the posters here though.

RoeDapple 6 years, 1 month ago

The real beauty of it is . . . when I get you to react you become one of us (those you don't like here) so rather than having "anger issues" I sit here laughing at how easy it is.

RoeDapple 6 years, 1 month ago

I'm not your "honey", sweatheart. But I am dancing around room laughing at your weak attempts to stir the pot!

RoeDapple 6 years, 1 month ago

Okay thuja. Just went over to my neighbor's house (a psychologist for 28 years) and "no" is the answer. I showed him my posts and yours over the last few months and he thinks you're "unstable". He also told me I am one of the most cool, level headed people he knows. A bit wordy, but cool, he says. Admittedly, for the price I paid ($0), the analysis can be taken with a grain of salt, but you asked for it. Where should he send the bill?

Thuja - really? Just because one does not see things your way - does not make them a troll. As for sociopaths - I will repeat - the guys and gals in white hats have done a good job of dispatching the sociopaths from this site - well there is still one, albeit pretty inane, hanging around.

Trolls are at the intersection of ambition and incompetence. You might want to consider where you fit in to the equation.

Thuja does have something of a point, even if not pointing it out very well.

Some time ago, the OTS was well-responded by quite a variety of people, most every day. These days, it seems like it's generally 40-60 posts, 80% of which are by the same three or four people.

Only questions are: are those two things related, and if so, which caused the other?

Terry Sexton 6 years, 1 month ago

There may be a handful of folks with the majority of posts. So what? They don't go bullying & trolling their way through the threads. Most of 'em are very entertaining. I hope they double their remarks. (are you listening, rara?) This business about 'woe is me, the regulars are taking over' is really starting to chap my backside. It's a FORUM, an exchange of thoughts & ideas. Everybody is welcome as many times as they want. Isn't that right, Ms. Crump?

jonas_opines 6 years, 1 month ago

Well, entertaining is in the eye of the beholder, but it is of course possible that they are filling the void caused by departures of other posters. Of course, it's equally possible that they are causing the departure of other posters, as well. I certainly don't advocate any solution other than live and let live, but at the same time, just because you can do something, doesn't necessarily mean that you continuously should.

You say you find it entertaining, which is great. But you might also consider what it would be to read if, ya'know, you actually didn't find them entertaining. There wouldn't be much point left to reading at all.

Either way, just thoughts, after all. OTS is still, generally, one of the nicest threads on the ljworld.

Kathy Theis-Getto 6 years, 1 month ago

You are right, jonas, but imputing causality can be a sticky wicket.

RoeDapple 6 years, 1 month ago

Hell to be out of town when you have tranny trouble . . .

Terry Sexton 6 years, 1 month ago

Deja Coffin 6 years, 1 month ago

I'm actually really interested in this. Do you know of any local green home contractors?

gonewest 5 years, 8 months ago

(ignoring Google, which "doesn't count") it would be and second to that my own, (although its user interface was created in the mid-1990s, and I have yet to significantly revamp it).

Re: Second Life, I have found love there in a special person and good friends. But truly, I miss my good friends from my childhood in Lawrence. Amy Long, Phil Teeter, Dodge Wendler, Webb Thomas, John Walburn, so many others!
