A word (several, really) about redneckwman

    As some people saw, last Sunday, in an attempt to try to introduce some levity into these forums (which have recently seemed to have a particularly high amount of, shall we say, negativity); I wrote a fake "newswoman thing" about what's been going on.  Again, I thought it might be funny.  More importantly, it was an attempt to put some perspective on some things that go in the forums.  I guess my thinking was that for anyone who participates in the forums, it would be a matter of laughing at ourselves (or at least laughing at something with which we all share familiarity).  (I knew the thing may not be funny to a lot of people, but that's beside the point.  smile  )

    I got a nice e.mail, though, and it pointed out that my choice to include redneckwm's screen name in that thing could seem to imply that redneckwmn is not a real person.  I can see that.  In my attempts to introduce some levity I just included remarks about the latest and longest threads; and it was all those people who posted concern about redneckwmn's announcement that she was leaving that made her thread a long one.  It didn't even occur to me that behind her reason for posting that she was leaving may be a situation that isn't the least bit funny.  To be honest, I was seeing all that support and concern people offered her as a really nice thing; and I guess because of that it didn't occur to me not to include a reference to her in the fake news-lady thing.  (The frightening thing may be that while some people on here post what they shouldn't because they've been drinking, I did that fake news-lady thing as an absolutely sober individual.  lol  )   

    Now that I know the reason she posted the brief "signing off" remarks in her thread, I also know that my interpreting all that support/concern expressed by others as a positive thing was my interpreting only part of the equation.  Fortunately, her reasons for leaving have nothing to do with any health problems; so at least there's that.  I've e.mailed her an apology for mentioning her screen name in a post that was intended to be "all about funny"; and I wanted to say here that my mentioning her name there was not intended to imply anything at all.  It was just a matter, as I said, of pulling names from recent, long, posts with Hubbers as the subject.

    I think it's great that there are people on here who are so ready to be supportive of others, and that there are people who find real friends here.  The last thing I'd want to do is make light of the genuine friendships between some people on here, and I hope redneckwmn finds a way to stay in touch with the friends she's got here.



    (The rainbows are for redneckwmn, with wishes that things iron out.)

    It seems like there's been a lot of Hub drama these days.  Thanks for the thread Lisa.  I'm unaware of the situation your talking about, but I'm glad you're taking the time to explain things from your end.  I had seen that Redneckwman was gone but I didn't know exactly what had happened.
