I got a pm today from Gary saying that he was leaving. I find this to be unfortunate. We shot a few messages back and forth yesterday after an incident in shout. I am not going to point fingers at anyone...that is certainly not my place. I do hope that Justin will be able to contact him and get him to reconsider leaving Sploofus. I think that he really enjoyed it and he will be missed by a bunch of people. What I would like to say is this: Please do not post anything in the shout (or here either for that matter) that you would care for anyone else reading. The shout is NOT the correct forum to vent on someone. Have fun, tease, banter, all of the fun things like he and Chick did. BUT don't overstep to the point that you might really hurt someone's feelings, whether it is intentional or not. Okay, the end.....sounded like a speech from a teacher didn't it? Well, so be it. hahaha

Hear, hear Marsha! I don't know what went on, but I miss him already and fervently hope that Justin can persuade him to come back. I enjoyed our chats. It's the people that make Sploofus work, the points are irrelevant at the end of the day. You just had to admire Gary's skill along with several others at the top. JUSTIN PLEASE DO WHAT YOU CAN!

I didn't know slicko well, but he was always so polite, congratulating me before he beat me. Come back slicko, you'll be missed.

Don't know what it was all about:- and don't particularly want to as it sounds way personal, but get Slicko back in here if you can. Love the banter, its a breath of fresh air and we should all be friends here. Andy

We want you to come back, Gary! He was also nice to me, and it's sad when someone is missing in the Shout early in the morning. Hope he will reconsider and come back.

The shout is at the wordround page. When people usually shout good morning, etc.

As I am now receiving nasty PM's for my part in driving Slicko of this site, I will no longer be on shout or on BBS. I apologize if anything I said in jest offended anyone.

Come back, Slicko! You are missed.

Pardon my butting in Randy, as I was not present during this conversation in Shout that has caused Slicko to leave Sploofus, however, I do know you, and I cannot imagine you ever saying anything that would so offend someone.

We all know that written words can be misconstrued and taken out of context, and we are all adults here. I would think that your apology should suffice.

I don't mean to overstep my bounds as I was not present, but I do hope you reconsider, regardless of whether Slicko accepts your apology and regardless of these PMs you are receiving.

This has to be a huge misunderstanding. I agree with every thing Lisa said, and I hope im not out of line here but
Yall can't just up and leave this Sploofus family cause of a misunderstanding. I miss yall, I worry, and I need ya to be here with me please! So can we fix this? I will pray for yall and hope that you come home soon and let us know that you are ok...

Im sorry if I offend anyone by posting this, But I don't want to see these wonderful people gone from OUR HOME.. Love ya!

Maybe he needed a break. Just give it some time. It will be OK. I almost did not renew my membership because of quiz authoring comments that were different from one editor to the next.

you mis-spelled dam

1mks  (Level: 208.2 - Posts: 5864)
Tue, 2nd Oct '07 10:13 AM

Depends on which kind of dam you are talking about. A "dam" holds back water or can be a female horse. "Damn" on the other hand means to condemn to an unhappy fate.

Seems like I opened a can of worms. That was certainly NOT my intention. I merely thought that the shout section in word rounds did not need to have any hurtful statements. I think that we are adult enough to know the difference between friendly bantering and heckling. There still is no need to point fingers or make wild accusations.
I cannot officially speak for Gary....I merely stated what I "felt". I did not intend on ruffling feathers. Hopefully, someone will get the message to him that he is missed.

Ok everybody that left should come back i may not speak much on shout but i love to watch the banter! ya all may abuse me anytime you like i love it, lets keep sploofus our happy place to go when we need to escape the outside world, i think you are all great people, come on back Gary, and Randy don,t stop shouting, you are a sweetheart with a big heart i know this much.. luv ya all ... mostly silent Eileeny...

Tue, 2nd Oct '07 10:55 AM

I agree with Lisa....all words - written or spoken - can be misconstrued and
hurtful. That's the time when reasonable people have to take a step back and
then discuss between themselves, what was said or done....
PLEASE talk to each other about the hurt and find out what the other person's
intention was, when those words were said. I'm sure emotion coloured the heated discussion on Shout, and in the following PMs. We can discuss it and all can
easily be straightened out, once feelings have cooled.
Speaking for myself, I come onto Sploofus every day EXPECTING there to be a mix
of challenges - both from the quizzes....and from the wise and very opinionated
population of this Island.
To ALL parties involved in this disagreement.....please please think about how
best to repair this rift. Please find a way to "agree to disagree"....I'm certain
NO-ONE meant to drive anyone away from Sploofus, or to cause permanent bad feeling.
I for one will be saddened if anyone leaves or withdraws from certain sites - just
because of a momentary argument.

Wise advice, Rowlanda. I hope the parties involved will take your advice and talk to each other, outside of this forum. I've not seen anyone on this site, chat, shout or PMs, who is deliberately hurtful. So please, do what Rowlanda suggested.

With all due respect Marsha, if not to "ruffle any feathers", what was the point of posting this thread? This whole situation, in my opinion, should have remained private. It's bad enough to lose Randy has eliminated herself from the Shout and BBS. I just don't see the point, and, again, respectfully, I don't think any one of us needed that admonishment regarding hurtful words in Shout. We all love and care about each other here, and that's the way it's supposed to be, but that does not mean we all need to be made aware of every little spat or argument that occurs. By posting this thread, you have invited us to comment. I believe that Gary and Randy should be given a chance to work this out between themselves and, hopefully, they both will return to the place they love.

I have sent Randy a private message concerning this, but I am posting it here so anyone who reads it will know that Randy had nothing to do with Gary leaving. Gary gave me his email in order to find out what happened to Kelley and why she hadn't been on in a few days as we were all worried about her, and he hated to leave not knowing. I emailed him and let him know she was okay, and going to be back on soon. He has emailed me back, with the following message for Randy:

Could you do me one more favor - I forgot to PM Randy before I quit - she also
was one of those "regulars" who was always so nice and who I will also miss
greatly. Perhaps just a quick shout if she's on to let her know she's a real
peach or a PM to her if you have time.
Thanks again, Gary

Ordinarily, I wouldn't post a private message or email, but this is a positive addition to this thread, and I have also told Gary how much we all miss him and want him to come back.

I know Randy would never hurt someone's feeling intentionally, and we all miss her very much in "Shout" & "BBS", and I hope she will come back, along with Gary!

I want my own drama thread. I've left seven times already.

As for Slicko, I think our efforts should be expanded beyond the prayer ring, the drum circle, the fundraising beefsteak, the memorial golf tournament, the newly planted tree in the Sploofus arborteum, the sacrifice of the virgin (no loss), the escalation to Defcon 4, the plunging and subsequent closing of the stock market, the renaming of LaGuardia Airport, the canonization process, and the massing of US troops on various borders.

More drama needed. How about a ghostly murder on prom night?

I'm sure Katie life will go on without anyone. I just have a different attitude about people. Some people you meet you relate to, and others you don't. I thought that was what this site was about was friends. I don't see you in Shout that often, so maybe you weren't that well acquainted with the people involved. I like people who aren't rude, and these people are good hearted, fun loving, thoughtful and mannerly. That's just me!


Bearpaw  (Level: 50.7 - Posts: 155)

Well if it was friendly we would not be at this point Do not judge I have a right to my thoughts What does it matter if I don't chat Is this a clique or what!!!!!!!!!!

Smoke20  (Level: 62.6 - Posts: 2815)
Tue, 2nd Oct '07 10:44 PM

If it's a clique it's a wide open, welcoming clique and all it takes to get in is to say hello. Some clique. I wasn't there and I don't know what I happened. I DO know there was nothing hurtful that passed between the two people who have chosen to absent themselves. I hope they will both come back.

People are making comments on a situation about which they have very little, if any understanding. None of this is productive and is making things worse if anything.

Apparently nobody knows why Slicko left, and unless he chooses to inform us, there's little chance we will know.

Randy has been hurt by someone who sent her an abusive PM blaming her wrongly for Slicko leaving.

That's all. Nothing else to see here.

There is always a problem with typing...what you meant and what gets read are usually two totally different things. I have found myself in that tornado a few times. That being said, I know just about everyone that has chimed in on this matter and I can guarantee you that no ill feelings were intended.

So here goes:
Sicko, Sicko...come and play...
Come and kick my a** today...
It will not be a banner day...
If you choose to stay away...

Burma Shave…me…

Also, I vanished for a few months, so maybe he shall return as well.........

Most likely will regret posting this-usually do. I quit a long time ago as "Linda" because of something(s) that were said in Chat. Rejoined a bit later as "Heidi". I forgot this is a game and I can ignore unkind remarks from anyone and everyone. The site has changed-some parts better but not all. I have watched many come and go. Personally, try to avoid conflict especially in Chat-never did Shout much. Linda (Heidi. If I truly have an issue with something or someone, I submit a Support Ticket.
