I'm not sure about everyones response to this. It seems a little cold to me. There are "some" who are left out on this board. You post something and get nothing! But when one of the "popular" people post something, it gets 200 responses. It is happening. Everyone is supportive and sympathetic don't get me wrong. But there is a sort of click here and some people do feel left out. It's almost as if some want the "rights" to dp board because they do more, say more or see David more. I don't mean to sound mean but that is the way it is interpreted by some people. It is kind of hurtful. We shouldn't act like a gang of high school girlfriends who have their favorites.
Hey Carol -
My post was intentionally "cold". The attitude with which this whole conversation was begun was accusatory - suggesting that the whole board was intentionally ignoring someone and then subsequent posts said things like:
As for you not believing that I can be nasty and mean, just talk to the people that have met me and know me. I was not raised to hold my tongue. If I see somebody eing stupid, Im gonna tell them, of course, Ill tell them how to fix the stupidity and try to explain as nice as I can that I dont have room in my life for stupidity.
Sometimes people respond best or understand a message the best spoken in their own language...So, rather than speak the truth in love, I decided to speak the truth in rude bluntness. Hoping to make a point. Maybe Amanda doesn't have room in her life for stupidity...I feel the same about attitudes like the one she is putting forth. Hear me correctly - it's the attitude and not the person I take issue with...
As far as people responding to posts, I dunno if its really a cliquey thing or not. In general people tend to talk more to people they know the best. Maybe we should all examine our hearts in this area and see whats there. That can never hurt. But I don't think anyone intends to leave others out. I know there have been plenty of times I have posted something I thought was really interesting but I didn't get much of a response...That's just the way the forums cookie crumbles.
