Come all ye broken -hearted message board posters.

Ever been misunderstood?
Ever been called a name?
Ever had an opinion expressed that differed from yours?
Ever began a thread that went off topic?

Ever had the Administrator go against you?

This is the place for you.
Let's explore it for ever and ever.

Well, since you asked ...I think it was weird that some dude who sells SEO services and has no apparent ties with authors, editors or New York publishers wrote an authoritative article about how New York publishing works. I think it was even weirder when I questioned what his cred was for writing that article, and he stomped off in a rage, with another poster here telling me it was due to my NIT PICKING. lmao. Weirder yet, when a plaintive "Come back, please, we want to learn from you!" thread was posted.

Ah well, people are strange. Smile

Some of us thought it was strange that a person who will not furnish any info about themselves was questioning the credibility of someone else, especially since the other person had given a name, website, etc.

Some of us thought it was strange that some of you thought it was strange that some of us read a website and strangely couldn't find any mention of being part of the NY publishing scene.
How strange it is!

I am confused. The last I saw of you, you were worrying about being hung. I am glad that did not happen.

You were very wise to fret it though--the things we worry about rarely come to pass.

I like it here and want to stay. I do get misunderstood at times. Sarcasm is not easy to express in writing. I get accused of taking myself too seriously when I think I'm being hilariously funny, and other times I get accused of taking threads off topic when I'm just making comparisons and seeing connections that seem totally rational to me, but nobody else gets. I get confused when some people take one attitude on another forum and a completely different one when they come here; I can't figure out which is real. But it's all good. Just let me read and post my middle-of-the-road drivel, and I'm a happy camper.

bounce lol!

My,My, I had no idea I'd bag so many folks in one day.

LC, E.Don and Ann are in need of long-term help. I have private rooms with King'size beds. The linens are Egyptian cotton as are the towels and complientary house coats.

The food will be catered in --order 45 minutes before you wish to dine.
We will have complusary goup sessions.

Do the beds have Magic Fingers? Those metal boxes where you drop in a quarter and the bed shakes for three minutes?

They were the highlight of my childhood vacations!

Someone said I might be a criminal; didn't like that very much.

Someone else intimated I was judgmental; how could I possibly be pleased with that.

Someone else said if I couldn't take the hot water to stay out, or words to that effect.

Someone else said I was unkind to a poster -

Okay, I guess I'm recovered. Thanks for the opportunity.
