    Yes, I just may leave this forum. Sometimes some of us put out a little too much criticism towards members for a Thread they do or a post they do. I can now understand how Chrissy felt. For the most part, all forum members are nice.

    What I think forum members who really, and I do mean "REALLY", disagree with what another forum member posts, needs to look at postings from other forum members who have said a similar thing.

    Sometimes we do a Thread that could be full of controversy or where some members would say "how could you say that.", while others could totally agree with what was said.

    Anyway, will I leave? I'm sure if I did, some of you wouldn't miss my humor mixed with sarcasm. I can only thank God that my wife likes my humor. Everyone on this forum should respect the rights of others to disagree.

    Now I will have a Bud Light and a shot of Tequila!

    Thanks Ken! Right now, it's just in my "thought" banks.

    Oh gosh @Cody Fousnaugh don't leave please. This is the best Forum you will ever find!!! But even the best Forum has imperfect human beings. This is a good place to discuss things even when we don't agree and even when it gets a little hot and heavy sometimes. We would miss you if you go...so I hope you won't. :)

    Cody forums are funny arenas. I just feel there are always three sides to a story. Yours, theirs and the truth.

    I hope you do not leave. I have enjoyed your posts.

    @Cody Fousnaugh "Now I will have a Bud Light and a shot of Tequila!"

    This process could lead you in directions different from those you might take tomorrow morning! Depending on your particular make-up. I have known both personality types in my day: those who become mellow and more considerate of weighing disparity, and those who become inflamed with agreement with their convictions. Both are extreme reactions to the "center of the road".

    Don't go, at least not yet. If you do, you may forever regret it, as I have several times, after leaving enjoyable forums to which I had dedicated a whole lot of time. Tried to convince myself time could be more beneficially spent elsewhere anyway; false conviction.

    OTOH, my two words above are an imperative verb phrase, same as a command, which I have no business invoking. But, I won't change it.

    Thanks for the very nice comments! Have to admit, this is the BEST forum I've ever been a member of. It's very nice to talk with folks from my Generation (Baby Boomers) and before. We do have disagreements, but all-in-all, nice forum/nice folks.

    Still thoughts about leaving, but I'll see how things go for me.

    Again, thanks for the kind words!

    @Cody Fousnaugh - so you had a disagreement :rolleyes:
    Why leave over it - these things happen and sometimes feelings are vented
    Today, is another day

    @Cody Fousnaugh, stick around for yourself, and for the rest of us. It's our differences that makes coming here interesting. It's ok to be quirky, and it's almost impossible to agree on everything, but our oddities make each of us see a different way of looking at whatever issue is up for discussion.

    Your the rocker in this village, so stick around, and keep on rocking Cody.

    I'm next. To be ridden out of town on a rail. Come to think of it, WTH did they mean by that term, anyhow?

    OK Cody... We are going to have a disagreement right now..
    Just you and me...

    If you go, you will be missed on here for a while..
    You will feel sorry after..
    You will regret your decision..
    You will then most likely end up with several beers and half a bottle of booze..
    You will then most likely end up with a headache and a hangover..
    You will then most likely feel sorry for yourself..... again
    You will realise you miss us..
    You will most likely lurk back on here just for fun, which means you enjoy being on here..
    You will then regret getting involved in controversial discussions that will lead nowhere in any case..
    You will then regret leaving here in the first place..
    You will probably think of coming back either with your name or as a new member with a different name..
    You will come back because here is the BEST forum you can find.......... ANYWHERE..
    You will be happy you decided to be back on here..

    SO WHAT THE HELL DO YOU THINK YOU ARE DOING LEAVING HERE ??

    Well ok, now that that's all settled, I mean when face with @Steve North's good common sense, only one conclusion is foreseeable.

    @Frank Sanoica ask a gueation about an old phrase, and I've often found myself doing that. I thought we had a thread concerning such questions, but I can't find it. Maybe @Ken Anderson knows, and can stick this over there.

    I'm known as the Tech Zombie for a reason.

    Anyway, I goggled Frank's question, and it seems to be 'ridden out on a rail', was a way for the populous to ridicule and get rid of unwanted persons from their towns, and that person was lucky if they weren't tarred and feathered beforehand.

    @Steve North "You will realise you miss us.."

    Mebbe so, but he would not miss any repeat of the recent hassle!

    I just voiced my opinion without any information as to why he wanted to leave..

    @Steve North
    Yeah, evidently, the hassle was between others, and you inadvertently got caught up in the aftermath; no big thing at all. Happens now & then.

    Frank..
    I still have NO idea what the topic was and where it was.. I rarely get involved in heavy discussions, especially on here....
    Did I say something wrong ??? Did I insult someone???
    If so, I apologise ....

    Hassle is of everyone's own making. I try and keep out unless it involves me.

    This is a nice forum why are people having hassle? Can't fathom it unless it is,an attention seeking thing.

    Maybe members who are having problems are doing so behind the scenes.
