It will soon be time for china man to disappear, for commercial reasons mostly. So I go to my account and cannot find the DESTRUCT button - anyone help with this so I don't have to wake anyone up in the cockpit ?
Trouble with this is the lnks and connections remain. china man started for me to get to understand backlinking and get an idea of SEO - and now I need to do it for real - no fun or honesty, just commerce
I can understand that you're trying to eliminate the social voice behind the account and want to spend time on commercial stuff. If this is the only reason then don't delete this account. Keep it and don't use it for backlinks,use it just for interaction.
Open another account and use that for serious stuff. Don't use it on forums.
If this is indeed the case, be sure to include in your request that HP delete all forum posts. If memory/observation serves me correctly, I’ve noticed that HP doesn’t seem to automatically do that when deleting accounts.
What links can be publicly made between the two? I mean, without you wanting them? Frankly, I don't know, I'm kinda with the others here on this one. Yes, I know I copped out, but that was partly cuz I knew there were people like you out there doing a much better job at it than I could.
Are you sure you're not gonna want to hold this account name in reserve? If you're busting free of the rel and pol commentary, you'd better install Edweirdo's forums filter, cause otherwise your other ID may get just as bogged down.
I don't like it. I'll miss you. But then we all need balance in our lives, and it is rather like banging your head against a brick wall. Good luck with the commercial pursuits. It's kind of nice to just mind your own business and let the world of whackos go on more or less without you.
I hope we'll still see you in the less rancid areas of the forums under your other ID. I'll miss China Man though.
I thought you were doing a rather good job myself and missed your witty and well thought out stuff. But it is never ending and getting boring with the same old lies coming back with every new liar and the bleating of the cute, but misguided, sheeple.
I think links can and would be made between the two and anyway why take the risk, business is business and the buyers are all colours, shapes and denominations and I wouldn't want to loase any of them just over an issue of honesty and decency now would I
We plan a bit of travel outside China next. If things stay financially the same we will be limited to the fantastic places we can get to easily from here, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Burma (Myanmar),across to Thailand and maybe up to Singapore and even as far as Indonesia or the Phillipines. If the money starts rolling in better then further afield, maybe show Sukie the UK, visit the US and a few other places that would take us right around the world westward until we arrived back here from the east !
...okay...by the time I'm on the lake...the $'s could change for you....west coast of Canada could be a pit stop, especially if yor passing through the US...a free place to stay.....i should show you the lake....have you been to Canada?
...ha ha ha...she's a city girl!....i'll take her shopping if yor up for it......we'd have to swim tho! j/k...on an island (you probably passed it in yor yellow submarine days........too bad...show Sukie some other stuff...rather than the shops and more shops...you can shop anywhere....tell her I say 'wtf?'............................i used to be a city gurrrrl....now I walk in both...i luv it........
Your deleting your account? Don't get me wrong, I understand completely why you want to, but I have to agree with everyone else that said it might be better if you open up another account to do all the serious writing you want to do, while keeping this one up. Besides, why would you want to hurt your adsense revenue stream on the hubs that you already have? However, if this is something that you feel you have to do, then I wish you the best of luck, and hopefully it works out for you.
I don't understand why you feel the need to delete your account - but, you realize your Username can't be reused, right? You already have a second account, so why not a third? You're in control of the links between them, and the content each contains (outside ads) so...idk, I'm not one to try and talk anyone into doing something they don't want to do, but, I guess, I just don't understand why you feel the need. (I'm not asking you to explain, I'm just rambling, lol, Gonna miss you!)
I quit for two years. Not for the same reasons. Probably cause I learned all I could for the time. So been back a week. Must say really great people here. Hey its no fun arguing with yourself. Now me I like to talk to everybody. Course everybody cannot talk to me. But Whose got time anyway. What is it a perfect world? And I hardly knew you.
Yes - I agree that there are really great people here - I would say it is the best place to get a grounding in online stuff - by far. Especially the exceedingly helpful advice on all things online from those I am not going to name because they even fight over the info they give and I might miss one out by accident
It's not pointless. But with that said, it's also a very thankless, tiresome, unrewarding, time-consuming, frustrating pursuit that leaves you spending alot of time with ugly people, earns you alot of enemies, and just pretty much alienates everybody else.
When I was full of questions and confusion, it was people like you in internet forums who provided the answers, or at least pointed me in the right directions, and often without me ever asking or taking the time to really thank them. It's not pointless. I shudder to think of what my life would have been like if people like you hadn't been there. Good gods almighty, I never would have made it. For any man who believes in it and has within him a decent heart will surely go insane. (Loose quote, Robert Ingersoll.)
But there are other people better suited to the task, in my case, at this time. For everything there is a season. This is not my season for banging my head against brick walls. Maybe it's not your's either anymore, and I certainly wouldn't blame anyone for that.
I'm not sure deletion is necessary, but I sure do reckon you know what's best for you. Are you on my facebook? I've recently started adding hubbers willy-nilly. Or say you will be around in the less angry forums still, and that the ID is the one I know -AP.
If that's the case and you'll still be around, then I'm with you. Let's just all earn some money here. It's much more tangibly rewarding. Let the crazy religious people keep their hell, if they want it so much. You and I my friend have lives to live.
(I just raised my wine glass at the computer screen, toasted your imminent success and life-long happiness, and drained the cup.)
Cheers to you PB !! thanks for the words, not sure I deserve them but hey ! I can't get Facebook here because all you rude people put rude pictures in there (amongst other stuff) and so China blocks it - LOL
I routinely dlete a few Facebook inviations every day so I may have refused you. With my new stuff I need to be able to extend into Facebook, and other info stuff blocked by China, and so will buy a proxy to do that through. Maybe I will catch up with you then. Bye and thanks for being here.
I know - you are right, I am ruled by a beautiful woman half my age and half my size, a very beautiful woman . . .
And nobody could be scared of anyone with such a deplorable fishing record, any of you !
Commercial concerns rule I am afraid, 'she' insists that we get married within two years and I need to come out of my comfortable lazy existence and earn some real dosh again. Done it twice before so no big deal doing it again
Been nice sparring with you, even though you are soooooo easy
Bye everyone - it has been a pleasure getting to know you all - thanks for the htech help all those who know who they are, and thanks for sheeple who make us ordinary folks look so bright, and thanks for the intelligent and witty posts form others - and fight fair while I am gone !
