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 short with a big nose. If you chase me I may trip over it.
from the master of self-promotion here - where have you been lately? Haven't you seen that thread? Cags is saying he's leaving and he's making his exit last a couple weeks or longer! haha - he is the MASTER!
well, start pumpin' those little legs, schnoZ! (is this the right way to do it?)
Don't forget the cattle prod. Oops, I stepped in poo and now I must prostrate over to relieve my foot.
back already, Stubby? Well, you're not gonna get any sympathy outta me! pewww! what's that smell?
What's wrong Wonderwoman? Can't stand a little heat from pasture flatulence? What's a little ozone depletion without the herds' relief?
and another thing - why are you still here!
this is the most fun I've had in weeks! hope I don't get into too much trouble!
where was I?
oh, and I know an excellent plastic surgeon could do you a world of good!
Why would I need a plastic surgeon? The nose is to be proud of. I live in Iowa and I get California's weather before they do. I provide a service to all mankind. I protect the masses from devastating rains and lightnings. I bring fury to the wicked with the blast of my nostrils (with a few chunks).
You better watch out or I'll kick you on the ankle! I may even get a ladder and kick you on the knee!
still looking for sympathy, huh! well, I'm just getting practice with you. I'm not seriously running you out, Goldenpath, you're no threat!
Alright sister, don't make me take my gloves off. Michael Jackson wouldn't be proud of that. Since we're on the subject of cosmetics let me just add that there are techniques available to take care of that massive unibrow of yours. I'm sure there's a cream or something.
That is my mask, baby, and it is beautiful! I NEVER take it off (except at night sometimes, to sleep)
You're wearing gloves? Oh, I thought you had some terrible skin condition that you just didn't want to talk about!
Has Mega really got a unibrow? I can't see it on her profile pic because of that mask.
(i don't know how long i'll be able to keep going with this. seems that i not only have nobody to cheat on, i have nobody to cheat with!)
hey! running people out here! need conspirators!
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.
Yeah and you've tried hard to get rid of me too! But that's okay, I know how much you libs hate free speech, so I expect to be reported.
We don't hate free speech. We hate ignorant speech..
But, I have never reported you for anything. I'm not sure you ever did anything I COULD report even if I wanted to.
I was joking about Mark.
And that's another right wing trait, paranoia! Hey everybody's out to get me, bomb them.
Oh and free speech is saying what you think, not saying what you are told to (usually by the right)
It's obvious what he is trying to accomplish. No one has figured it out yet?
no, what? is he trying to get some women to go to bed with him? or is he trying to get some other hubbers to run away with him? I don't get it!
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?
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.
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.
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!
I don't really know him. We live in the same State, but I've have never met him. Nor do we even get along - I'm sure he has the same low opinion of me that he seems to have of everyone else
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
Seems he's only leaving the Forums, and not HP altogether.
I don't believe he'll manage.
like everything I do lately this thread has turned down its own road! oh well - (skipping along) :
Well - I wasn't really sure what we were supposed to do here. I thought maybe to run one another down, but there aren't many I'd like to do that to, and those I would like to do that to wouldn't come here anyway.
It was just a little bitty joke. (jogging now, trying to get away from the angry hoard of hubbers carrying "Please, Cagsil, stay" signs)
well, sorta kinda - mainly saying how much they'll miss him! Now, are we gonna run anybody out of the forums tonight? or shall I just go read a book?
This sounds hilarious. I'll be going over to look at that thread with my morning coffee. Good Night!
Why do you want to do this? Are you just being mean? Ok by me.. please don't choose me! I'm new here, got a lot of hubbing to do yet.
These Hohums - I mean forums are boring now anyway!
Bring Back the Moose or Eric and Eric!
Don't worry.... I'll do it myselzzzz
Spilled my coffee...
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.
...ha ha....i'm sure there's no penalty.....and its probably kickin' up its heels already....divin' into those holes and running around on that nice grass will be so easy for its short legs.
you can see now that it actually exists! how do you like it so far?
...wow!....nice Mega....and long strap right?....i'm still a patient person....thanks for the peak!!! that bead work sure does look nice and love the leather work! ...thank you.....and remember the inside inscription if you can....
...didn't mean to be late looking....getting ready to go out for dinner....what a nice surprise this post was!
...bump...not sure if you saw my reply...
yes - a long strap - I think 48 inches? is that ok? glad you like it
here's a pic of the latest woodrat - the one I released today - Woody!
oh well, you won't be missing very much. The rest of us stay mainly because we're addicted.
I just got very discouraged when I got banned from the forums for a few days, and I haven't really done much here since. Once you lose the "I love to be here" feeling, it's pretty much downhill after that.
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?
I'll be around, and one day, I'll actually write something again. Right now, I'm kicking butt on DS, because I need the money for the holidays.
...that's really too bad Amie....i don't get it....i guess someone has too much time on their hands....and they don't sound like a very nice person.....it must be weird to feel like you're being stalked on HP.....all because you have your own opinion.....
Why not give it another shot? There are some very fun moments. The rest of the time, pick your spots or just sign out. Hope you'll stick around awhile!

Recently I'm noticing new members who have no hubs, no activity where they read or comment on hubs, and only join to participate in self interest and/or bleeding heart questions in various forums. Sort of using HP as a chatroom. Before anyone attacks me for this, please know I enjoy the discussion...

Thranax last published a hub 2 months ago. He used to be very active on the forums. Does anyone know what has happened to him?

For those who wish to leave comments in my hubs your more than welcome to, and i'll certainly reply to them. As for forums, this will be my last official post in forums as i no longer feel the need to be here. i won't go into details as i don't want to incriminate anyone. i will...

I've been experiencing a drop in traffic for the last week or so. I've been seeing a lot of people in the forums talking about how they are seeing increases in traffic, but I am seeing the opposite. Is anyone else seeing a drop in traffic?

* They sometimes drown out the hubbers with genuine queries, criticisms, and concerns.* There really is no excuse for wandering off-topic and being uncivil. * If you say that you're leaving HubPages, then fail to do it, you have zero credibility in my opinion.(Maybe I should just take a break from...

I've always wondered why some Hubbers have more than one account. Is this a good thing or not? The only thing I can think of is that after a person writes many Hubs, it becomes a chore to take care of that one account.
