TIS A SHAME

I realy believe it is regretable that 'good' folks have quit this site. Got a pm from a man I think very highly of this am who said he no longer participates because of talk of cheating and censorship and the list quizzes on 25 most popular-miss him as I believe the site loses because of is nonparticipation. My son introduced me to this site and now he no longer plays. Am not sure why-perhaps because he is 30 someting and his enthusiasm waned. Just believe that promisrs should soon be fulfilled and thatr "elite' folks should quit loooking down their noses at others. Your arnmpits most likely smell too-miss Kimmeie and Docshy and the other kind folks who helped me not ridiculed me-Linda

I must say that today I am considering quitting (or at the least becoming a non-paying member and just doing the tqotd)

It seems a little bizarre, given the contention on this site lately, that the paterfamilias would create a quiz singling out three people out of 34,756 and not think that some people might take umbrage.

Maggie, to which quiz are you referring? I must be missing it somewhere.

Thank you!

Justin's BBS post Susan

My guess is Justin knows those three players well enough, to know they can take a joke

I thought Ulysses Everett McGill was the paterfamilias.

Like it or not, Linda, you are a big part of MY clique here. There are a few hundred cliques going on - the only one I care about is my own, and you are in it. I've always enjoyed your posts, and am happy to see you whenever you are on. I suppose I just single out the players I know have the thickest skin and won't take offense by bringing them up in a quiz or a joke type thread.

Bizarre? Maybe. But I own the site, so if ya don't like it... take a hike!

Love you Linda!

Cheers!
Justin

I never said I disliked it, I just found it odd. If only I could afford to hire Smaug as my free speech advocate.

I am mortally offended, and vast anonymous hordes of Sploofers communicate their personal offense to me, threatening to rain financial disaster on Justin's Island.

etc.

Bwahahaha...thanks for my laugh of the day.

Linda, you rock...but let's face it...there are few of us out here who could "take" the insults posted when one puts our names on the BBS.

That being said, be careful what you wish for, if you would like your name to be included on the "One Word Sploofus Quiz", be prepared for what others write. As King Sploof said...one has to have a pretty tough skin. When someone insults me or disses me (especially if it's really clever), I just laugh my fool head off, can everyone do that? I'm guessin no.

This is BY FAR the least elitist site I've ever found. All opinions are welcomed, but just be prepared for the fallout.

Keep on truckin sister...we all appreciate ALL of the members here...some more than others, but ain't that life?

Heidi, I know what you are saying. When my membership runs out I'll go non-paying as well. It's always been elitist and the one's crying "no it's not" are the same ones that run the site. The Editor snobbery and censorship detract so much from a wonderful product. The editor that was deleting my post because of some personal grudge was the last straw. Let the few that call the shots carry the expense of the site.

Merry Christmas

At this junction I would actually like to thank sploofusionist for my latest quiz, you made me re-contemplate staying after the accusations made against me.

Felix & Linda,

Just so we get a coupla things straight...I am not an editor, I say that every now and then to divert attention from the BS.

Secondly, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, it's called your "paradigm"...your world is what you see. If you honestly believe that "The Editor snobbery and censorship detract so much from a wonderful product"...the only one you can change is yourself.

In a nutshell...we call all sit here and believe that everyone is out to ruin us or our quizzes...or we can shift our view and maybe, just MAYBE, start to think that the issue lies within. The only people we can change is us. (May have paraphrased Covey alot...but ya'll get it)

Me.

I don't want to see any of you go. Every time Sploofus loses a member, the island sinks a little. I love Sploofus way more than I probably should, and it takes a lot of folks to keep our crazy little paradise afloat. So even if it's selfish on my part, please stay!

It truly is a family here. When we need support, other members shore us up. When we step out of line, we hear about it. When we're happy, we can share our news. When we're lonely, we know we can come here and step out of it. We may not all get along all of the time, but what family does?

Susan

This site hgas so many problems it is a wonder it still exists or it has so many opportunities it is a wonder the whole world is not here ... yet. YOU do try to treat others as you like to be treated. Just remember, that to be constructive you must work from within.

Sorry, I just don't see unkindness here. A whole lot of nonsense, yes. Some of the members have gotten together for weekend 'conventions' so they are going to know one another a lot better than those of us who just participate on chat.

I haven't experienced anything but kindness. Well, Smaug did call me Frodo the other day. But that's a compliment. I think.

That which you seek, you will find.

If you look straight up 5 or 6 post, my point is made for me. Someone is either telling me how I feel or what I mean. Sheeeze! Smorg, My parking space the one by dumpster. Just paint over where it says Mr. Wonderful. If the Editor era is to be forever, why not let them answer questions and concerns in chat instead of the small number know-it-all players that try to impress. In the old days if you had a question someone like that sweet Vickie might answer you. If Vickie said it it was so. Now that I've seen editors with agendas it's tough to believe anything that you hear.

Remember the sound you make when you turn something (or someone) off is often 'clique'.

God Bless our Military Men and Women
Merry Christmas (to most)

Felix
