I CAN BE A REAL JERK SOMETIMES

No Chick didn't write the title - I did.
First of all for those of you whose time I wasted and whose sensibilities I offended I apologize. No I wasn't going for drama I really wanted out. Here's the poop:
I logged on Sunday evening to find people complaining about me - nothing bad - nothing mean - just a little grumbling - I admit it, I was a little po'd, but gimme a break I'm a big boy so get over it (and just maybe there was a little truth in what they were saying). Unforunately I didn't and instead steamed about it all night. Next day I get a Movies and TV question - figure OK I'll wager on my best category, get a mess of points and then maybe I can back off all those WRs and WMs and heck on the bling because I'll have a great overall rank. Well of course the question sucked - one of those ones that less than chance get correct - so down I went and now I'm saying great - I have to hog more points and p off more people on WRs and try to get more bling to make up for all those points I just blew - That's when I said enough's enough - sent off some hasty farewell PMs and I was gone. Felt relieved (so did my wife) - for exactly 24 hours. Then I realized that I had just lost some of my best friends literally in the world and started feeling depressed.
I get home from work last night and there's an email from Justin - just said "Hey man what happened?". Now this guy works his butt off for us and didn't have to do that but he did and then it hit me. Yes Sploofus is competition - but it is much more than that - it is fun, it's educational, and most of all it is a chance to chat with some of the nicest people anywhere. So this morning I asked him if I could come back - and here I am.
I am going to handle this whole thing differently - definitely won't be doing as many WRs and WMs - at least for a few months - just enough to keep on my toes and still have a shot at some bling. If I blow a wager so what - they don't call it a wager for nuthin'. And most of all I won't be a little brat and say I'm taking my toys and going home just because of a few comments. All I ask is that if I am tickin' you off in any way let me know directly. I know I ticked off more than a few people with this whole little tantrum and I hope that if I screwed up any friendships please put the blame on me - not on each other. Once again my apologies to all of you. And thanks to Justin who has created something very special for all us. Gary

Welcome back Gary, I don't think for one minute that you should stay away from WR's or WM's . It's the super fast players like you who keep me striving to better my times. I remember when I first joined, how happy I was to get 100% and then be in the top 25. Just keep on doing what you like to do.

I am glad you decided to come back. Even though I am not part of the WR/WM in crowd, I can still tell who the MVPs are. You are part of the thread that binds sploofus together into the great place it is. There was a lot of unraveling in your brief absence. I hope you get it stitched back together in short order.

Hooray! So glad you're back. We missed you. Besides, Kelly said she was going to cuss every day in the WR's until you came back. Now we can have some freaking peace.

And please ignore the comments from some of those bitter ole' poops in the other thread. You know we have to have them around to make life interesting.


Seriously, it wasn't the same without you.

Sploofus is like a rich Persian carpet made of many colorful interwoven threads comprising the membership. Without each of those threads, the whole thing becomes unravelled, and looks tatty.

Welcome back!!

Great to have you back, Gary, and welcome! We really missed you in the early morning coffee breaks. It just isn't the same when some of the positive people aren't there to get your day going. It's a nice way to wake up!

It's nice to have the King of Cheaters back among us. There wasn't NEAR this thread when I left and came back... SO I am feeling abused.


It's all about ME, you know.

BTW, Slicko... Can you give me some cheater tips? I want bling TOO !!!

Once word of advice.... Next time you leave, bring Scotch when you return.

Well said Slicko, and I do know what it's like to get hammered in the forums although it hasn't happened in a while. Guess I'll have to get outrageous again. C'mon somebody Pi$$ me off!

Has anyone noticed that when you win a big wager it gives you a good feeling for a few hours and when you lose....man, you're in a snit for days? Once when I was feeling overwhelmed with work, I wrote and said I wasn't going to renew my membership. All these nice comments came in and I relented, of course. Smoke said "See, we loved her back in!" It was so genuine. I'm even a platinum member now! Welcome back Slicko!
Prepare to win some and lose some but know 'ya friends are still here.

What I find sad about the whole incident is the people who belong to Sploofus and are ignored. I read comments by many members that maybe get one or two replies. The chat room is for some inner circle which is obvious to all who read the chat room.

Jorboo, I can understand how you feel that way. In the beginning, I did, too. But I just kept putting in my 2 cents worth whenever I felt like it, and I keep taking quizzes and sending notes to all of the authors and almost all respond back graciously.

I've been a member a year now and I'm finding friends here. It's just like moving to a new community; it takes time and effort to build friendships. Just as in a home community, people know one another well (and in the case of Sploofus, some have met at conventions and know one another personally) so it's hard to find your niche within that group. But it can be done. It doesn't hurt to be an optimist and persistent. At least that's what is working for me.
