    I am completely at a loss with this thread. Have there been cuts.?

    Why do members put you on ignore too.

    Get two sides of a story please.

    I am going to cool off. Big time

    I feel that way too, sometimes. I'm not sure what you mean by cuts. Compared to many other forums, I rarely ban anyone and when I do, it's usually only for a short time, just in order to let things cool off.

    As I said in another thread, I much prefer people not "ignore" one another but that option is available if the alternatives are worse. Sometimes it might make sense to do that for a short period of time, again to let things cool off.

    @Honey Gee "I am completely at a loss with this thread. Have there been cuts.?"

    Stalking? I don't understand. Computer illiterate, a "troll" is an ogre who hides beneath a bridge, waiting to pounce on the unwary; stalking is a physical act being carried out.

    I thought trolls were people who lived in the Lower Peninsula of Michigan, beneath the bridge.

    Ha ha - I think we know that Frank
    Besides the 'stalking comment' was made early in the thread by Yvonne, if I have the right thread :confused:

    @Ken Anderson
    More likely those are the homeless who spend summer there and winter out in Phoenix!

    I ought to be more careful. My remark about the homeless is made without considering those, many of whom are Veterans, who suffer from a post-trauma mental condition, and get lumped in with the "homeless" numbers.

    But, other than the truly unfortunate and indigent who are not capable of "pulling up by their bootstraps", I still cling to the belief that any who state they are homeless "through no fault of their own", are those who feel a free-ride is owed them.

    Some think me harsh.

    Now I am completely confused. I think I have been to Mars for a couple of hours. I am sure things will become clearer. Puzzled.

    @Ken Anderson what I meant was the thread wasn't making sense to me. Were edits made by yourself or cut out.

    Naw, they were relocated to Disney World. All that's left there is some illegal night fishermen posing as trolls.

    Back on track surprising what a nights sleep does. My confusion lies from me having to fast for a blood test this morning.

    It would be nice if threads were not cut. But humans cannot help being themselves.

    That's what makes the world go around.:)

    Don't worry yourself too much Honey Gee. Sometimes even though we definitely know that we are in the right church, it feels like we might be in the wrong pew. It just be's that way but in the end the possibility is that the pew we wind up in has a better line of sight.
    Hope all goes well with the tests and hope it is early so you can get back to your normal routine.
    Blessings............

    My husband despairs @Bobby Cole. I have always had a caring nature and do not like bad feeling or people gossiping behind others back. There is no need.

    Forums seem to be a gravitational point for this type of behaviour. Or you offend somebody as you have a different view.

    This forum is far way and above the best I have come across. Excellent and fair modding.

    Thanks for your concern. I have had a very busy day as with had to travel to a lab. So went up to the city for retail therapy ;-)

    We need to get this straight - it wasn't your different view on Brexit at all
    It was your 'status quote' that I didn't like - still don't
    I don't play mind games either - so now we 'know' the problem, lets not rehash it again, but put it to bed

    Hang on @Patsy Faye who said I was talking about you. My status posts are normally comedy threads. Not aimed at anyone. I never knew you were even annoyed with me. News to me.

    What did I say. I think you have actually pulled me up for using quotes accidentally. Not nice being admonished on an open forum either. I actually just giggled about it. Not made a big thing about it.

    My status posts are my own thoughts and perhaps you should not focus on them too much.

    I do apologise @Patsy Faye if you feel offended way.
