    anyone?  shall we?  who would we run out?  and why?  I never heard of anything more ridiculous in my life,  but we could try!

    I'm not sure I want to run anyone out.  I was trying to get Mark Ewbie out, but somehow he found out, so my plans are foiled. 

    Don't worry about Cags. I have found the soundproof van, bought the rope and I have a good lead on certain other implements I will need.  He's only an hour or so away from me, so he'll be getting a little midnight visit..  I think we can "talk" him out of this.

        Lifeallstar1posted 6 years ago in reply to this

        If anyone needed to leave they would just leave and do what they needed to do, at least for most.   Maybe say they would post 50 more times or something...if they felt the need to make a grand exit.  They wouldn't say they didn't have anymore free time but stay another 1000 posts. I could be wrong, though.

        This is only a guess and just having fun with it so no one needs to be offended by my guess since a lot of people find it a bit odd and wonder why so here's my guess... I think he wants to stay and post but have recognition for his welcoming posts, etc. Since he feels he helps out in the forums all the time he wants the elite status? Again just a silly guess but the only thing that adds up since anyone would have been gone if it had to be all or nothing and they had important stuff to do.  Crazy of me to think that, right?

        1. mega1 profile image79
          mega1posted 6 years ago in reply to this

          no, not crazy - you've hit it on the head - its the hub-martyr syndrome - where a hubber feels they are special in some way and don't get enough recognition and so sometimes post threads that are pathetic bids for attention - or go into the religion or politics forums to trump up some conflict thereby either causing another to get banned or get banned themselves.  Then their "supporters"  keep the whole drama going for weeks.  Its really not even funny, just pathetic.  Not saying that I know this for sure, its just the way it looks.  Anyhow. 

          I am going to read my book now so I don't get in more trouble when the angry mob catches up with me!

          I would comment in other threads, but there has been a dearth of good conversation/discussion lately, so that's when I usually tend to get in trouble.  lol

            Cags gets plenty of recognition..  He has a caustic personality, so it's not always positive, but there is no lack.

            I think it is what he says - he spends  too much tine here and feels he needs to quit cold turkey.

            1. Lifeallstar1 profile image60
              Lifeallstar1posted 6 years ago in reply to this

              He definitely does get the recognition. I think everyone see's that. Sometimes the person getting it doesn't see it though. I'm sure you're right(since you know him more than I do).  I was just having some fun. I think he knows that loads of people love him or at least he should. He should see that just by all the people wishing him luck in whatever he sets out to do, etc and with all the people telling him not to go.   It's right in front of him. He does spend a lot of time here and if the only way is cold turkey then you have to do whatever you have to do because there's a wonderful world out there with millions of possibilities! big_smile

                    Sure I am. I am a lunatic atheist pinko liberal. You can't get much worse!

                    Seriously: some of us are more volatile than others. I can get riled up pretty easily, but I don't have much hate in me. I don't think Cags does either, but (in my opinion), I do think he gives too little credit to the influence of emotions on our opinions.  He and I agree on many things, but he thinks people who do not agree are simply failing to think rationally. I say that emotions rule us far more powerfully than most know and that "rationality" is mostly used to justify what our deep emotions tell us.

                    Cags and I are both atheists.  Cags thinks religious people just aren't thinking well. I think they just cannot help believing.  Cags says I'm not being rational when I say that and I might agree smile

    can't we just all run each other out a little?  I need some exercise.  I don't want to talk politics, religion, or food.  Yes, that's right, you heard me.  None of that.  Sex=OK  ditto smut

    I feel so loving, I don't know whether I have it in me to run anybody out.

    Just got back from leaving off a woodrat at the golf course, where he can enjoy picking up the discarded food scraps golfers may or may not leave around.  Well, what else was I gonna do with him?  This may be the same woodrat that we released about 1.5 miles away a week ago - at any rate this time he's 10 miles away and probably not gonna find his way back.

    That's why I feel so loving - maybe I can get some sleep at night without the woodrats running around all night!

    The top one is a woodrat and the bottom one is a ground squirrel, I think.  or a gopher.  I think the woodrat I released will have a great ol time at the golf course, and hopefully there were no hidden watchers or cameras - I worried all the way home that I'd get caught!  What's the penalty for abandoning a woodrat at a golf course? 

    Oh, and SOH, that bag is really coming along - halfway done, really!  I'll post a pic here in a few minutes.

          I lost that lovin feeling a couple two or three times, but got over it.  Usually it was because a) people baited me into a rage or b) people kept posting so many "I love God" threads I wanted to puke or c) people posted so many dump on Obama threads I was just tired .  then again, I spend way too much time on here, so leaving for awhile is always good.  I can't be reasonable it seems.    I think you may find that cutting down your hours on hp will do the trick, without having to totally leave.  It's still better than any other forums I've found, with far less self-righteous bastards, actually.

            Yeah, and it doesn't help when the instigator decides to follow you, and you ask them to stop following you and even post a hub asking them to stop following you, but they won't. I feel like I'm being stalked, and why? Because I don't believe in God and hate Sarah Palin?
