Loc: In Your Servers
I post at MC and here,although I favor MM more at the time because of forum members I have meet at MC.<br>Alec/Marg/Gizmo/Steveg/carp are people that I respect for their humor and flat out honesty.<br>They are a large part of my cyber life,and it is a joy to amongst them.<br>I participated in the Lost Weekend it was not a planed thing it just happened,and I doubt if it ever could be duplicated.<br>As for members posting what they want on MC or here,I don't have any problems with that as long as the threads get nasty and out of hand.Threads when members loose tempers and name calling begins is plain bull shix.That type of thing no forum needs.<br>My home life is full and Im usually busy doing something around the house while posting or getting my @ss wiped by my son playing video games with him.<br>Both forums offer a lot of different people with all sorts of views on life I feel very fortunate to read everyones posts and enjoy. <br>Thank You<br><br><P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by Swatcat on 10/28/02 11:39 AM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>
It's not a strange question at all, Yoyo - when I first came to MCF I posted pretty much the same query - being new to forum participation and being interested in human behavior I was curious about what drew everyone together there. That was only a few months ago - and now I have some perspective of my own about it. For me - right here, right now in this particular Lounge at MM (since that's what the topic is) - it's all about the people - all of US - the comraderie that I've discovered here. Yes, because of the smaller group it's much easier to get to "know" each other - our differences and our similarities. It doesn't matter if I'm at home or work or the library - a computer gives me access to this place, and it doesn't matter if I stop by at any given point in my day or another - time becomes less relevant because we are spread out all over the globe. I don't live in a bell jar by any means, and like so many others - I have my own variety of job stress and plenty of personal life BS to deal with, but the ability to come here and converse and share experiences with such a variety of people in such a manner means a lot to me. I also think that because it is in a way a microcosm of the larger world out there (and the universe in turn) that it is subject some of the same forces - both good and bad - that act upon these things.<br><br>In my mind's eye I see the lounge more as a really big old rambling house with countless rooms - occupied by a diverse group of housemates who are basically a very tolerant crowd - sometimes we're gathered in the living room discussing serious topics or listening to music - sometimes we're hanging out in the kitchen talking about events in our daily lives - folks can be found bouncing off the walls down in the rec room - or talking Mac stuff in the study - and by golly tasteless humor can be heard from behind the bathroom door - or you can go out out in the back yard with the other boys in the neighborhood to see who can piss the farthest. (I'll stay out of that, thank you very much, 'cause my anatomy prohibits me from even coming close to competing there.) And like a real house - ya, sometimes company stays a little longer than you want them to, or the plumbing breaks and the basement floods, someone forgets to take out the trash, solicitors come to the door...sometimes it's just all peaceful and quiet with the sunlight streaming through the windows and I can curl up in a chair with the kitties in my lap and Rufus at my feet and read all through all the day's postings...Maybe you get the picture, maybe not. <br><br>I'd like to think the welcome mat is ALWAYS out and the door ALWAYS open to ANYONE who wants to come in and stay a while.<br><br>Leslie<br><br>(But really it's Marg's fault that I'm at either forum at all - she made me do it)<br>-------------------------------------------------------------------<br><br><br>[color:red]When all is said and done, much more is said than done.</font color=red><P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by lesh on 10/28/02 12:29 PM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>
I wondered where Rufus was.... how did you get him to lay at your feet? He always wants to lay on the couch at my house - at 55 pounds, he's just destroying the darn couch!!!<br><br>[color:red] Kiss My Banana!</font color=red>

Well... I just singed up... so I came here to see what the MM community is like. You can usually tell what the members at a site are like... in the lounge. This where everyone lets their hair down and has a good time... most times. So, here I am... looking for a place to call home...<br><br>(Place clever quote here.)
