: : Out of time right now ... Will comment on this bizarre exchange later ... Keep your cool, folks!
: OK ... WHERE was I? Oh yeah ... Holy Cow!!! What's THIS all about???
: You know, as I think I've made common knowledge, the Web Site Hosting experience ... the INTERACTIVE Web Site Hosting experience has jaded me & made me very suspicious ... So, whether this exchange is even REAL is anybody's guess. So, one could just delete the whole thing & move on. But, what if "Suzanne Burns" is REAL. Then, I've cut off a fellow human being unjustly ... But WHO is "an even bigger cat"???
: We'll proceed as if it's all real ... not surreal.
: First we have a legitimate, and excellent post from Sandy. So far, so good.
: Then, and I'll interject my comments here, we have this ...
: : : : :
: : : : : Dear Goody Sandy,
: : : : :
: : : : : I have been following this Board for awhile, and aside from the MacWilliam Chronicles ( which, by the way, I find quite exciting!Whoever those guys are, they know their stuff!) this is the most interesting, useful piece of information I have seen on here.
: OK, fine.
: : I would like to see more writings like this, actually pertaining to the 18th century and colonial life. The nonsense some people post makes me wonder if they actually know anything at all about the 18th century. For the life of me I cannot understand what they are trying to do! There must be an awful lot of inside jokes, because much of it makes no sense at all.
: Suzanne, if that is who you really are, there are three choices, as I see it. One is to continue "following this board" from afar. Maybe it'll all come together for you some day. The second would be to start new threads, dealing more with history, and/or only join the threads you do understand. The third would be to mosey on. I don't see a suitable fourth that goes something like "criticize all the people here," which is what you did. Every single soul here was "new" once. Even for us, the Board was a new thing when we started it. It had no personality. We had to wait & watch & listen & cultivate. We made mistakes; messed up here & there. Just like you are doing now. People have become friends here, so of course there are what appear to you to be "inside jokes." That's bad? I don't think so. The Board is always open to those who want to join in, or even move in a different, a new, direction. Let me say, too, that the Board was set up, originally, to discuss the movie, not history necessarily. It has expanded to include all kinds of stuff ... most all of which IS connected, however distantly at this point, to LOTM. First & foremost, the Board was set up to be fun. THAT it is ... usually. Now, I can easily see how someone might not be able to make heads or tails out of this place at times, but it's just folks having fun.
: : : : :
: : : : : Anyway, thank you for educating me about the Census. Keep this kind of material coming!
: : : : :
: : : : : Suzanne Burns
: OK, a pretty good post, I thought, though unduly harsh on the Masses. Now THIS!
: : : : Hello Cat In A Tree,
: : : : Me thinks you know EXACTLY what "they are trying to do" and even better ... Me knows EXACTLY what YOU are trying to do.
: : : : You might find Goody Sandy to be a bit sharper than your bait and you will find these good people here to have sharper wits than they do claws.
: : : : Oh, but you are right about the MacWilliams Chronicles! Have you read them?
: : : : Have a safe flight ...
: True about the wits! What the ...!? Am I MISSING something here?
: : : I beg your pardon? Of course I've read the MacWilliam Chronicles, each one as they are posted on here. I am afraid I don't have a clue as to your remark--
: : : I am trying to do nothing, except state an opinion....if you cannot accept that, I feel sorry for you.
: Hmmmm .... wreaks of two folks who know each other. To come in here and insult the group at large, which was done, and then to blow it off as merely expressing an opinion, which was also done. DO you two know each other?
: Take it elsewhere, please!
: There are several plausible scenarios as to what has transpired, none of which I will elaborate on ... I have my hunches ... will watch the WHOLE thing a bit more.
: For the life of me, I can't understand why it's so hard for people to be courteous ... to be sensitive ... and to be who they ARE!
Oh, Lord...Nitwit Season comes earlier each year. The
weird thing about Nitwits is that they spread their
very own manure, plant themselves, and then wait for
someone to pay attention to them. Fortunately, when
ignored they shrivel up quickly, and other than a
faint lingering stench, they're easily forgotten.
