There is no need to apologise, you are doing fine.  To address the concerns of your additional  Peeve regarding the time it takes for posts to appear,  I feel a lot has to do with the various time zones we are in.  From East to West Coast and across The Pond. 

Also the fact that m / m  reserves the right to monitor the content based on their protocols, ... so relax.

 

Yes, all too often e-mails get misconstrued, sans facial expressions.  This is also a major factor with inter-net dating, where people tend to hear what they want to hear, instead of what you are saying.  Perhaps the reason for those ' smile ' and related icons ?.

 

Aaah ! ...  The Professor.  We actually became good friends over the phone in his latter days.  I just checked and it seems like much of his stuff is still here. Type in ' Orlando ' in the blog search box ... voila !.

Some of his ' Research ' was pretty fun, like the one titled  " Men who cheat are more likely to break their Penis ".  Check it out.   Orlando did interact with us, but annoyed some.

 

Thanks for sharing,

WoW SL~~ I hadn't heard that name in quite some time!! When you spoke of "Dr." (or someone did) I thought they referred to that doc that came in and started telling people how to make a marriage last and was all up on his "Christian" high horse! Remember him? He was a widow.

 

As for O? Well, I liked him, but I was one that eventually became annoyed as I am a genuine blogger. I grow tired of people when all they do is COPY AND PASTE OTHER PEOPLE'S WORDS. And I tried to discuss it privately with him and he ignored me. Then he got upset and blocked me from all his postwhen I addressed him publicly. I dont respect that. I am far from a passive individual and I wear my big girl panties to a party. (In my case, that means a thong ;) HA! )  So if a person can't take a straight shooter, they best get out of the line of my fire. 

 

He told everyone he had been on so many dates, even 3 a week, yet still hadn't found anyone he clicked with? REALLY? I can't possibly imagine WHY? Even picked one up in a helicopter for the first date. I said it like it was.. 

 

Any man or woman having 3 different dates in one week and wondering WHY he can't find the one? Well it is obvious you haven't devoted that much time to getting to know a woman before asking her out. And three dates a week? SERIOUSLY? Let me be the first to inform men..

 

DON'T ASK ME OUT IF YOU ALREADY HAVE 2 OTHER DATES LINED UP FOR THE WEEK. IT'S INSULTING!  All that says is you're throwing enough spaghetti so hopefully something sticks! That's about as bad as shows like THE BACHELOR! It shows "desperacy" and no woman desires a desperate man anymore than a man wants a desperate woman for more than one nght! I told him these things privately and he blocked me. I find this childish and immature. I don't play games. I call it like I see it, and if people disagree, feel free to tell me. I'm a grown woman. But PASSIVE PEOPLE? ICK!!

 

You have to be a strong individual to hang with the princess! And it doesn't matter if you have the highest of IQ's in the room or not. If you can't speak in your own words, DON'T BOTHER! Even the least intellectual of us can pull up a study or some crap survey on the internet. I was in high hopes he would recognize, he too, has room to grow. I can certainly attest to the growth I have endured over the years LISTENING to others and opening up to their thought process... as well as being blasted by friendly fire!!! ;) 

 

Best wear your big boy pants for this rodeo, cowboys! ;)

Dear SEALION

 

I think I dont need a shrink but it annoys me that my comments are twice removed without any reasonable reason ..I just wanted to help 2 Ladies who are in distressed ..How can I  make it better when I dont have any idea about it ..Please as a Senior blogger to discuss the matter with the site .. Thank you ...



Hi MARYCLAIRE-

 

Your comments can only be REMOVED by 3 parties... 

Either YOU, as the poster of the comment removed them. (Obviously not the case)

MM found them offensive and removed them...  (I kind of doubt that, judging from your post I have read) 

 

OR- the AUTHOR of the BLOG you posted on has removed them. 

 

That's it! 

 

So remember WHERE you posted your comment, and that is possiby your best answer. The AUTHOR removed it. 

 

That is how it works here. 

 

The author of a blog also has the priviledge of BLOCKING someone off their blog. 

 

Hope this helps!

I need a "shrink", I just can't afford one now since Obamacare took effect.  That's why I'm here, the blog is my shrink.

Hi David,

 

You are in the right place and it`s all at no cost.  Now just relax. Tell us about some of your woes, including ' Obamacare ', if you may wish to.

 

Something the World is quite mystified about.

Hi **  S L  **

 

Firstly my apologies for the long quote.. I'm not sure how to multiquote or edit out quote strings on here, as it seems to work a little different on here to how it usually works on forums. You don't seem to have much control.. sometimes I want to just quote a single line in a reply, and sometimes I want to multi quote, but as I say, I'm not sure how. I think I've seen roc multiquote on here before, so it appears that it can be done, I'm just not sure how. Anyways...

With regards to being schooled in the "Queens English" and being prim and proper, I'm not sure about the being prim and proper, I just to tend to write things exactly as I would say them, rather than trying to structure them differently in an effort to make the sentences smaller is all. I guess I'm usually also conscious of the fact that that the written word can often be taken in a different way to which it was intended, so I try to make things as clear as possible. Without being able to hear ones tones and expressions or see any phsyical expressions, often the simplest of things can be taken the wrong way and get blown out of proportion, so I try to do my best to avoid that. I'm also quite humorous and I have said things to friends online in the past that would clearly have been taken in the manner in which they were intended if they could see the smile on my face or hear me chuckling as I said it and yet it really didn't translate too well in the written word, so yes, I guess I am also somewhat conscious of that at times. 

 

I'm not really bothered by the little bit of bickering that goes on here at times, I just prefer to avoid it is all, so although I read it, I just generally refrain from commenting and getting in the middle of any of it... I just don't see the point in getting involved, because more often than not, nothing good ever comes of it... It's just a personal preference, although I do agree with you, in that it can actually stimulate some good debates and that a little spice adds flavor.

I have no idea who the nutty professor was, as I haven't been on here that long, but I will use my imagination and assume he simply bombarded the blogs with the copy/paste thing and royally peeved you off.

For this therapy session, you list my peeves perfectly.. Fake accounts, scammers and ghost winks it is...

 

I would like to add one more peeve to the list if that's okay with you? I forgot to list it originally, but it's basically the amount of time that replies/comments can take to appear here. I've written blogs and replied to blogs before and in some cases the comments haven't appeared until a couple of days later. I thought it was supposed to be 24 hours at the most for unpaid members and was supposed to be a lot faster for subscribed members.. That certainly hasn't been my experience.. it just seems that it can be all over the place, with no real rhyme or reason. Sometimes they appear in minutes, other times they take over 24 hours to appear.. Also sometimes they appear and then disappear and then reappear again.. it's just odd... and a little annoying at times. 

Anyways, have a good one and as you say.. Keep on bloggin'

*Sigh... Yes Inspector... I can see the blogs have been waning... for some time, I might add.. 

Thus my not being very active over past year or so... 

 

I'm trying ti get WINDRIDER back here and not sure where CURIOUS has been. Lots of people missing, and of course without V here... well, NO ONE THROWS A BETTER GRENADE AND RUNS!!!  ;~) 

I certainly went to bat to try and get him back, but alas... my efforts failed. 

 

Yes, despite my "intrepid" stance and forward Type "A" ways....  I can be extremely sensitive.. My largest pet peeves are being ignored. It takes time to post and read and I try hard to keep up with all interesting topics when I am steady here as a courtesy to everyone, so I suppose I expect the same politeness in return. I don't care that everyone agrees with me.. WHAT A BORING WORLD THAT WOULD BE! But at least address others. Passive aggressive people are spineless and t annoys me. I'mmore the SPIT IT OUT ALREADY! I DONLT GET PAID TO BE A MIND READER! ;)

 

Now if you will excuse me... I'm going to go read some blogs and seeif there is something I can complain to MM about.

WHERE'S BRITT!! LoLoL..  



***  Dearest Hoping  ***

 

I am with you all the way here.   Maggie the ' WindRider ' ...  may be back soon.   Curious Pat did mention her ribs hurting back in January ?. hope she is O K.   Britt may be out golfing or married by now ?... anyone know ?.

 

As for your ' Intrepid Stance ' ... now that really turns me on Babe, don`t ever change that.

 

Kiss, Kiss,

After thinking about it for a day, I regret my previous post here.  I don't think it was right of me to be critical of someone else in these blogs.  I should have just emailed the person and asked her those questions myself.  Calling out people in public like this for their blog threads may make others afraid of saying what they really think here, and that would be a shame.  If she reads this i hope she accepts my apology.


***  The King  ***

 

Hoping & Shy Guy have both done a great job to assuage you.  My Thanks to them.

 

I might add that your initial ' confusion ' was right on cue.

Your thoughtful post is greatly appreciated.  Like you, my initial schooling was in ' The Queens Language ' but growing up in New York City put a different twist to being all prim & proper so I understand where your thoughts originate.

 

' The little bit of bickering ' you mention is actually quite mild in retrospect to some ' grenades ' that a seasoned old friend used to toss into the room.  It stimulated the debates on good topics and I feel is still O.K. if all is done in ' Good Faith ' and not taken personally.  A little spice adds flavor.

 

As for copy and paste, we had a ' nutty professor ' here a while back, who really took the cake ... and ran like hell too !.  Anyone remember him ?.

 

For this therapy session, may I list your Peeves as Fake Accounts, Scammers, and Ghost Winks ?.

 

Keep on Bloggin,

Awww... G2BK.... 

 

You didn't state anything wrong, were not unkind, etc... 

 

Look, it's like this... If someone wants to last a long time here, OR ANYWHERE IN BLOG LAND..... and esp be well liked, or in some cases perhaps not liked so much, but at least respected.... They must learn to take some critisism... We receive it all the time. OMG! The bombs that people threw at me regarding cheating. (That's why I wished to clear the air on another blog with you when you made a statement. Many people misunderstood me, so I hadn't known if you did.) 

 

Sometimes people squabble, sometimes they apologize, sometimes politics and religion get out of control.. 

And sometimes people have to be told... 

 

"You know what... You are a beautiful woman many of us, men and women, would like to get to know better because we are like family here. We have people who don't appear for months and when they do, we embrace them like they never left. So please quit hiding behind other people's words and show us the rest of your beauty! We want to know YOUR thoughts and we want you to speak up when other people post what is important to them. It's how we do it here.... and it must work better than anything else because we have the same ones here for years now who remain most active. So please, give us a chance and open up a little." 

 

There, now it's out of the horses mouth.  ;)

Need I put a name? I would. I see nothing wrong with it. 

I can't stand passivity. It shows weakness... 

I am not weak, nordo I beat around a bush...

I jump in.... 

I'm a genuine handful.... 

But at least I'm full of spice! ;~)

I just Love your Sensitive Nature and being an integral part of the Family with seniority too.  We all need a little scolding now and then to ' keep our butts in line ' ... dont we ?.

 

In Reality, You are such a fun person, and We All Love You. Never forget that.

 

Your post speaks for itself, volumes I might add ... Aaw just kidding, now don`t get your panties in a wad.

 

On a serious note, The purpose of this topic is to simply improve the quality and inter-action on the boards without any offence to fellow bloggers.

 

The desire is to see more light hearted and fun, yet thought provoking, creative, original topics that may be of real benefit in our everyday relationships with others.  Be it in Dating, on-line socials, with friends, family and so on. 

In short, to better understand and respect each other.

I wouldn't be too hard or critical of yourself... I am pretty sure that anyone that follows the blogs, knew exactly who silverlion was referring to and it's not as if you named her.

HEY SILVER.. AND ALL...

 

Hmmmm..... Lots of avenues covered, but I will lay mine out. 

 

1) When a "newbie" comes in and post their first blog, yet has never interacted on any of the other blogs. Might appear petty, but I take it they are self-centered and self-absorbed. They write only to hear themselves speak, not to truly interact with others. We may bicker at times and have disagreements, and some of us may like each other more than others, etc. but we are like family here. Even with our lovely LADY DI and DAKOTA being basically polar opposites, they have been respectful of each other and do not ignore the others thoughts. 

 

2) When I go out of my way to greet someone and they don't so much as say hello. I admit. It hurts my feelings and I also find it disrespectful. 

 

3) When my comments are ignored by the author or the individual I am speaking to. Again, disrespectful. I have asked a couple of people where they are from as their English is broken, yet I never received a response. 

 

4) When a blog goes missing or my comment goes missing. I had both these occur recently. Someone new had posted a picture of a woman dressed in a beautiful gown, looking sleek and beautiful, and another picture of a woman with a banging body, huge boob job, in a skin tight dress. The author posted something to the effect of who is classy or trashy? I don't recall. BUT, the entire blog went missing! I wasn't rude in my response but I let the author know in my comments that a picture is not enough to decipher if a woman is "trashy" and it was not a fair assumption. I am 47, and I wear skin tight clothes at times to go party.. If the woman in the evening gown was waiting on the balcony for her married lover with 4 children--- how classy is that considered? And maybe the girl who was supposed to be trashy hasn't had sex in months or years? One must not base everything off one picture.

 

Before then, I posted on a blog and another woman DELETED my comment! That's childish, rude and inappropriate. I stated nothing offensive. I just stated how i disagreed with her thought process. I noticed she hasn't lasted here.  

 

5) Catty women.. LoLoL... 

 

6) As a writer I am offended when someone takes my thoughts and uses them as  their own. This is a form of fraud and is akin to what you refer as plagiarism. I am not so bothered by the copy and paste if someone feels it can add value to our lives by reading it, but you darn sure need to address the fact they are not your words in the blog. I think some people think if they add 2 sentences and change things aorund it makes it theirs. NOT SO... 

 

Hope you have a great week dear! I'll be sure to check in and see if you block me, remove my comments , or simply ignore me. ;~) 

 

Cheerio, Inspector! 

 

OOPS! MORE... ;)

 

When someone comes in and starts dictating how we should be in a relationship. (Remember that Dr. dude?) Honey, if someone were that good at it... THEY WOULDN'T BE HERE IN THE SINGLES FORUM! LoL

I mean, advice is cool, but golly geez! 

 

Posting more than 2 or 3 blogs per week. I am a firm beeliver in addressing other people's blogs. God / The Universe / The Monkey.. LOL... gave us TWO ears and ONE mouth for a reason.  ;) 

 

Negative Complainers.. It's okay to have a negative blog now and then, but if you constantly exude negative vibes.. well, I don't wonder WHY a person is single then... "Debbie Downer" was not popular in school! 

 

And people who go whine to MM... 

 

Okay, I'm done.. Now people can post how they hate people who have long list of pet peeves! ;)

Posting more than 2 or 3 blogs per week. I am a firm beeliver in addressing other people's blogs. God / The Universe / The Monkey.. LOL... gave us TWO ears and ONE mouth for a reason.  ;) 

 

Negative Complainers.. It's okay to have a negative blog now and then, but if you constantly exude negative vibes.. well, I don't wonder WHY a person is single then... "Debbie Downer" was not popular in school! 

 

And people who go whine to MM... 

 

Okay, I'm done.. Now people can post how they hate people who have long list of pet peeves! ;)

Quoting Good2BTheKing:

I don't have a peeve but I am confused by someone.  There's a newcomer to the blogs who seems like an interesting and attractive person, judging by her profile.  However, I don't understand why she posts laundry lists of relationship and marriage advice with no follow-up posts in her own threads and no comments on other threads.  Does she think we will change our behavior after reading these posts by a total stranger?  Is she trying to help people because she's noticed a lot of dysfunctional attitudes in the blogs?  If she's trying to do good, why doees she not feel it necessary to follow up with comments?  We may never know.

Bravo ! ... The confusion you mention is exactly ' The Peeve '  that sent me to the Shrink`s couch.

 

I had responded to her first two blogs in a harmless and jovial manner.  She immediately Blocked Me !.

 

Now, you will have to ask her those questions that you pose here and report back.  I can not and will not attempt to get into her ' complex ' mind, ...  to put it mildly.

 

Good to have The King on board.

Quoting ShyGuy44:

Hi **  S L  **... I didn't realize that you had been on the blogs for so long, as I only just recently met you a few weeks ago (so to speak). I'm fairly new to the blogs myself and don't really comment that much. Maybe I should write more often, I just struggle to say what I want to say within the length of a cell phone text message and I often think that anything longer just bores people and therefor they likely either just skim it or get a few lines in and skip the rest all together (such as what fishyme said lol). I guess I just don't see much point in writing it, if people arent going to read it and maybe add a comment/reply. There also seems to be a little bit of bickering going on here and there, so I tend to just read it and move quietly along as if I hadn't seen any of it, kind of thing.

 

I'm not too keen on the copy/paste thing either, never have been and I'm even less of a fan when the original author isn't even credited, but so long as the posts are giving sound advice in terms of relationships and dating, I can live with it, after all, we don't have to read it, we can just as easily ignore it. I hadn't really given any thought about what page anything is on... maybe because I pop on quite regularly and read them, so I'm usually up to date with most of it, as I tend to use the recently posted links down the right hand side, so it's easier to keep track of what blogs have been responded to... without that, then yes, I would totally agree with you regarding hogging pages, as it would be hard to follow what blogs had actually received responses. Not too sure about the blocking thing as I don't know how to check, so I will assume that if I can read a blog/reply, then that person hasn't blocked me?

 

In terms of peeves, I guess it's the fake accounts and scammers that exist. I have read some comments that MM do their best to identify and remove them, but the fact that they even exist is annoying. The first lady I ever spoke to on here asked me right off of the bat if I could get my account here verified, because she had already been burned twice. Needless to say, that type of introduction to the site didn't exactly instill confidence, as I'm sure you can understand. What was an even worse feeling for me though, was the thought that someone could play with someones emotions and feelings like that... so sad really. Another pet peeve is when you get those wink things and you go to check them and it says that the account can't be found or that you may have been blocked from viewing that profile... Kind of odd to send someone a wink and then block them from viewing the account, but it happened so many times, I rarely even bother checking them any more.

 

I'm sure fishyme has already nodded off mid way through the first paragraph (lol)... Anyways, I'm outta here for now, but look forward to reading more of your future blogs and comments... 

Have a good one :)

Your thoughtful post is greatly appreciated.  Like you, my initial schooling was in ' The Queens Language ' but growing up in New York City put a different twist to being all prim & proper so I understand where your thoughts originate.

 

' The little bit of bickering ' you mention is actually quite mild in retrospect to some ' grenades ' that a seasoned old friend used to toss into the room.  It stimulated the debates on good topics and I feel is still O.K. if all is done in ' Good Faith ' and not taken personally.  A little spice adds flavor.

 

As for copy and paste, we had a ' nutty professor ' here a while back, who really took the cake ... and ran like hell too !.  Anyone remember him ?.

 

For this therapy session, may I list your Peeves as Fake Accounts, Scammers, and Ghost Winks ?.

 

Keep on Bloggin,

Quoting fishyme:

  S L,

 

  I've got to say, I stopped in eariler and didn't know what to say so I left. Well Sir, I'm back! I still don't know what to say but I'm here!

 

  For me, sometimes I've got blog blas and don't even peek in for months. Other times I Have to check the blogs a couple of times a day [ is that being bi-polblogger?] [new internet word ^5, you saw it here 1st, news at 11]

 

  I have found most long blogs lose my interest real quick and often don't read them all the way through to comment. If I can't understand how someone is replying that bores the crap out of me and just pass over anything they have to say in the future.

 

  Digs and insults annoy me, there's enough of that in life so why should I read it out here in the woods where it's nice and peaceful?

 

  Politics is something that I Very Rarely comment on, unless ofcourse it is about Sarah Palin. She annoys the hell out of me and I feel she deserves ALL the digs and insults aimed at her. Other than that, most politicians are assholes and most stink.  IMHO

 

  Now about your answer "regarding those who literally 'Hog' the first page with copy and paste Plagiarism", I'm not familiare with seeing any of that that I've noticed, but hey, sometimes my room temperature is 52 degrees F.

 

  Hey, I though you were the Dr. on this blog.



***  Hi Fishy  ***

 

Thanks for stopping in.  Firstly, I am not ' The Dr. ' on this blog as you thought.  I am the troubled patient, an ol Hippie, as I learn from all the fellow bloggers.

 

I hear what you say regarding  lo o o n g - boring - blogs, and the digs and insults.  You have my full support on those observations.   Perhaps it may be safe to call those your ' Peeves ' if you agree ?.

 

Politics could be fun as long as we do not get caught up in ' The Politician`s Religion ' if you get my drift. 

It often  provides great material for stand up gigs with a synergistic live audience.

 

Regarding those who ' Hog ' the first page ... I just received a post from *Good2BThe King*, who has it pinned down most accurately.  Kindly read his comment on that.

 

Keep on Rocking Bro,

Quoting Diana3316:

Hi SL,

I am very glad you did decide to resurface!  We have missed you. 

 

No doubt, we all bring a different perspective and ideas to the boards.  I think that is the special value of our interactions.  But it's not just for us.  There may be others who also receive benefit from witnessing our banter....or at least I hope so.

 

Admittedly, there are times I do become annoyed when personal attacks are lobbed and constructive discussions not attempted.....but it's only temporary.  Mostly I just view the blogs as entertainment and we are all entitled to our opinions.  However, I do feel we are obligated to police ourselves.  I'm sure you can remember when some bloggers would run to MM with complaints regarding others, resulting in some members getting banned.  Hmmm....I guess that could qualify as a Peeve. 

 

Welcome back SL!  :))



***  Dear Lady Diana  ***

 

Thanks for the kind comment, so good to have ' family ' like you.  To many of us, you have always been, and remain ' The Respectable First Lady '. with an honest compassion second to none.

 

Yes, I sure do remember the period when all hell broke loose here, and Voyager literally got burned on the cross.  The topics and debates were stimulating with bloggers from various cultures.  Too bad it got out of control.

 

I am with you on the complaints to m/m, as being a Peeve.

 

Your post is definitely therapeutic, I will get off the couch now and back to work.

 

Warm Hugs,

 

**  S L  **
