What are you talking about? What gutter? You don't even know me. Besides he insulted YOU too you know. He insulted EVERYONE who comes to this board, but apparently you either didn't read his post or you're just as presumptuous as he is.<br><br>
Well I am sure I will hear don' t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out too but I think all this adding insults to what some think is an injury aimed at the forum members because of what TB posted is kind of sad. I expect it from the brothers three but was taken back at a few others. I think when you live on the other side of the world and a tragedy of this proportion happens and you check in to a place that we do share different events..maybe your not in the usual frame of mind. Upset, horrified..perhaps even effected in someway by family member missing..or a friend..something that strongly might effect the way you word your post. Such as "yet you crap on as if nothing has occurred." Yes we reply with "WHAT WE CARE" we may not post it but we care..and good riddance etc ..some hateful replies in the follow up's to his post. Remember 9/11 no one was thinking right.. Hurricane Ivan, the war in Iraq..things we can connect too., that touch us in some way..who knows what his thoughts were when he posted except that he was genuinely upset. A disaster had happened.. . I saw a person just upset..not our faults I agree ..but everyone at one time or another may regret a post or a remark, and your reaction was the usual piss on you..we could care less. I for one will miss his posts if he doesn't return, but thats me. <br><br><br><br>
It's one thing to be upset and post about it. But it's another thing entirely to walk in to the room and piss all over the floor. If TreeBeard doesn't come back, it's his choice, his decision. It's also his mess to clean up.<br><br>****************<br>I have no signature at this time

I really wasn't all that jolted by TB's post, but it was odd to assume that because we didn't post about the tragedy in this little space known as MacMinute, that we (as a whole) didn't 'care' about the incident.<br><br>Personally, I didn't know exactly what to say. It's easy to go off on a rant about terrorist bombings, but in an act of nature such as this there's really not much you can rail about...I don't think people in this country can wrap their brains around death & destruction of this magnitude. To us, 3,000 was horrifying enough. 70,000 just makes your mouth drop and doesn't really let anything come out of it.<br><br>
What I posted here "and your reaction was the usual piss on you..we could care less." I ment to say our,[I was not attacking you... ] as that wording implied. Sorry about that. My post was just my reaction to the over all drift of things..again sorry.<br><br>
Sorry, girlfriend, but while I respect your tolerance and admire your compassion, I beg to differ with you on this one. Yeah, a few responses were at a level similar to the original post, and 2 wrongs do not a right make. But I'm not buying emotional stress as an excuse for wholesale presumption and insult. This disaster will probably yield a quarter million deaths — 1/3 of them children. And the images of walls covered with pictures of the missing and pleas for any scrap of information reminds me way too vividly of what life was like in NYC during the weeks and months following the 9/11 attacks. A fraction of the loss of life, but no less horror, shock and pain. <br><br>Which brings me to my point: I lost friends on the ground and one in the air that day. Hell, I lost my job as a result of what the attacks did to the city's business infrastructure! You might say that life kinda sucked big time. But I didn't feel the need to piss on the forum's (MCF at that time) shoes because there may not have been enough posts about the event.<br><br>Like the old saying goes, You attract more bees with honey than with vinegar. As far as I'm concerned, Mr. Moral Outrage stuck his foot in his mouth, and if he's choking on it now, well, no one forced him to be an @sshole in the first place.<br><br>That's my story and I'm stickin' with it. *stamps foot*<br><br>
