OFF TO OZ

The next time you check the membership rostrun my name will be gone. So much for the "Spirit of Community' as last night sent a private message to a very popular woman here asking her in what I believe a respectful way why she flip-flopped on the forum. Her response was that she and many believed me mentally ill and asked me not to contact her again. Not only won't I do that but she no longer has to wonder why folks leave here-cruelty seems to fit. Could say mean things back but I am done here-for awhile it was nice-so just might check into the asylum or at least try to meet some kind folks-many her-but done with this two-faced SHIT!! Linda I am also asking the editors to delete the portion of my post where I shared some of my personal life!

I am totally in shock. I feel like I don't even have the words! Linda, this is one person. There are still many here that enjoy and appreciate you. I know I am one of them. You sent me a pm before and I thoroughly appreciated the time and sentiment from you. I swear - this just makes me so mad! I guess that makes me crazy. I will pm you later, Linda. Don't think this person is speaking for everyone here - that is NOT the case!

Don't do it. I love the little old lady in the rocker. Love the attitude, the comments. Come on, we want you to continue to play in this catbox. It's warm and fuzzy in here.

Ignore that idiot, no matter who it is.

Linda remember what i said in my pm to you about they want us old dogs to lay on the porch and keep our mouths shut. well i for one am not ready to do this yet, i think we have as much right to our say as the young pups do and beings we have been around a lot longer than some i mean age wise we know a little more than they think we do. so please stay here and just keep on being you and if they don't like it well then they don't have to read what you have to say. charlotte

I thank you all, but unlike Smaug I do not disappear so my fans will beg me to return-just tired of all of this and no one with any authority has a thing to say-thanks to you kind people-linda Still trying to figure out how to quit-make it very easy to upgrade but cannot find the way to do that- Perhaps I'll rejoin at some point when my blood pressure has lowered and certain people do not always require the "spotlight" to shine on them-when and if i come back will not be as a paying member-count on that_linda If I sound bitter it's because I am-Linda

The person Linda is talking about is me. Not only does she continue the rant about people posting where she doesn't feel it belongs in these threads, she also feels the need to send PM's to people continuing the diatribe. I really don't care about the threads - its open forum. But yesterday, she sent me some unhealthy PM's about how I flip flop back and forth on my stance on neverending threads and on and on and on. I let her know how I felt about that and said that I preferred that she no longer contact me. Because, frankly, I just don't care who posts what to where on the boards. I really don't. And I don't want to be attacked for it. I prefer to come to sploofus and laugh, not get dragged down in a bunch of stuff that is so dumb that I can't even begin to believe I'm actually talking about it now.

That's the deal with who & why. I don't want Linda to leave. I quite enjoy a lot of her posts and I do get quite a chuckle out of them. I just no longer want these things directed at me. What she chooses to do with that is her business.

See, Linda? Lodi meant no harm! You both are cool chicks and there's plenty of room on the island for both of you. I greatly admire Lodi and think that while she may have sounded blunt, that there was no cruelty there. I do think that there has been enough talk about where certain threads should or should not go already - it is getting divisive. So, let's all get along and move on to something else. What is your favorite chain restaurant? Mine is California Pizza Kitchen. They have really yummy salads. I once broke up with a guy because he overused the word yummy. He made me think he was kind of a wimp. Sorry - my short attention span got in the way here.

Linda may be somewhat thin-skinned, but I hope she doesn't leave. She makes points with which I sometimes agree and and sometimes not, and I hope she considers to participate on the site.

If, in fact, Lodi referred to Linda as "mentally ill" based on what Linda has posted, I cannot accept that this was not meant to be hurtful -- and it apparently had that effect. If she didn't want Linda to contact her further, that is all that needed to be said.

No, that's not what I said, that's what Linda said I said. And because what she previously shared with me is personal, and not meant for you, I will not divulge anything more than that.

By all means divulge my entire pm to you. as someone noted people lie but I try not to be one of them-. If the editors will honor my repeated requests, I will be gone all sick self of me-Linda So much for not having a mean bone in one's body-everyone has one. If I could avoid you and your nonsense perhaps I would not have quit but you are everywhere like a few other folks. At leasrt Chick was honest about why I pi---- her off-Linda

Linda, can you not relax? You seem to be very combative.

From what I've read, nobody wants you to quit Sploofus, not even Lodi. Maybe you should just take a little break from the sight, without terminating your account. Obviously, you are not enjoying it here, and it seems to be stressing you out quite a bit.
Sploofus is supposed to be a place to come for trivia, and friends, and community. Try not to take it so seriously.

I don't believe we have followers here. I also don't believe that anyone is p. o.ed except you. You could just drop it and let it go. I sincerely do NOT mean to make it worse. I just flat do not understand why you are so upset. It is really difficult to write things in a public forum sometimes because you never know how they will be perceived......you honestly need to be looking someone in the eye to know whether they are being mean or cruel. I really do NOT think that anyone wants you to leave..of course only you can decide that. Never make a decision in the heat of the moment though because you might live to regret it. Words can be hurtful.....We are not that much different in age...we are both set in our ways I am sure but that is no reason to strike out at someone. I have started to ramble so I best just shut up. Think long and hard about this Linda...you are a platinum member....and I know that everyone would hate to see you leave over a difference of opinion. Plus, coughing up that money repeatedly could get expensive. Take deep breaths and try to be calm.

I really appreciate ladies with attitudes. Always enjoy your posts Linda even if I don't always agree. You sorta remind me of my first wife who, for all her failures as a wife (RIP), was never at a loss for words. Enjoy Lodi and Chick and all the other tell it like it is members who make me THINK!

Linda,

Before terminating your account take a week off. Would hate to see you leave again. I always liked the effort you put into your quizzes.

Sorry for using my coworker's account to post. Normally I don't log in during the day only in evening or at 3:00 am when I can't sleep.

Linda,
I know you quit one other time and later regretted it. Take a week to let things cool off and then make a decision.

It is very easy to come back in and sign up with a new account - so I don't believe that Linda is truly gone - Heidi might be - but there is too much anger that is brewing under the surface and lashing out at people everywhere who only tried to help...but if she has - that new person is going to have a very difficult time not responding to the things that are already here...it's a compulsion.

There are several people who received PM's from Linda - including me, although mine was simple - she said don't leave because of me, which I never intended to do....I don't know the context of all the others but I absolutely know that Lodi did NOT call Linda mentally ill - I shared my concerns with her that I wondered if something was wrong with the medication she might be taking for her stroke - because this seemed over the top for the past few days.

I think something has happened with Linda, and I wish that if anyone has communicated with her / met her / knows her or knows any of her people they would get in touch with them.

I wasn't here for the last quit and I don't know what the old name was - I was actually looking through all the old posts last night - I don't really even want to say this publicly - but someone who might not ever respond, but actually knows her - might read this and check and see if she is okay in "real life"...

Although not the same "thing" per se - I've been on the receiving end of rages like this when I bartended and took people's keys away - they would come back the next day - apologize for being so horrible, thank me and give me a tip -

This is unfortunate. Lodi has not impressed me as an individual who would set out to hurt and insult anyone, not even in anger. I feel that Lodi will always put the truth on the table. I respect that. I don't always agree with Lodi and I don't think she cares.

I agree with the last post that Heidi is getting too wrapped up in all of this. I couldn't get a sense of why it is becoming so important to her. The proportion of her anger to the type of posts she dislikes is out of wack. Nevertheless, I agreed with some of her opinions and with those I didn't, it doesn't matter.

It saddens me that one of us has driven her own self away. I hope after a break we'll see that rocking chair back and we'll be happy for the comments once again.

It's obvious, Kaelin, that you've put careful thought and consideration into what might be troubling Heidi. Clearly that is the 'spirit of community' everyone seems to think is gone...

This causes me to be very sad. Although not "cutting fun" like Smaug, I thought she was just attempting to be "cutting funny" in her own way. It never occurred to me she meant it. Darn. I just hope she is okay and maybe will go and play on funtrivia.com or somesuch.

She has mentioned a few times that she has had a stroke and can only type with one hand, so she obviously has terrible problems. Sad.

I can't believe the editors actually terminated her account instead of just letting her cool off a bit. She has quit before and regretted it, and said she would not do it again. This is blown all out of proportion. I am sorry she is gone.

Sploofus will only terminate an account if the Terms of Use are violated. Members can terminate their own account at any time.

Heidi/ Linda may still be Sploofing- possibly incognito.


Check the (Sploofus Refugees Group- 8/3/2008 ) posts from earlier today during the outage.

I hope she is still among us.
