...which is partly why I came back after my first intentional absence.<br><br>I guess the latest round finally got to me. I know I was no perfect citizen -- showed my fangs on more than a few occasions. But I was certainly trying to be more civil even to those with the most ire and nastiness toward me, and it seemed like it was for nothing.<br><br>Now, in looking at the MC forums this morning, it looks like a weird mixture of people walking on eggshells and smarmy crows congratulating themselves on how clever they are.<br><br>The eggshell-walk may temper itself with time, but how long before the hostility rises again? If the rustlers want it, more power to them. Let them poison each other with their venom, but keep me out of it.<br><br>

...to track them to their homes and DESTROY! She's practically to the point of capturing the ant scouts and putting little radio collars on them, then releasing them to lead her back to their Foul Queen of the Underdirt!<br><br>
I know nothing about the debacle at MC (annd I guess I'm glad about that--I had my experience of disaster with MacNN), but I do know about writing and defending dissertations. Way to go, Sean, and lots and lots of good luck!!<br><br>And that's true too.--Shakespeare, King Lear

That's a shame Bukk, but it says more about the mentality of the person sending the message than anything about you.<br><br>FWIW I like reading what you write. You seem like a real fun guy. (Not a fungi) :-)<br><br>What does the song say? <br>Go where ya wanna go, do what ya wanna do... (can't even remember what song that is)<br><br>Don't really know what I'm doing about all this stuff either. Probably my usual fade in for a while, fade out for a while, maybe here, maybe there... There are still some good people like you hanging out at both places.<br><br>Chris<br><br>[color:blue]Be obscure clearly.</font color=blue> <br>[color:green]- E.B. White</font color=green>
I am here. <br>Like you, I feel a little awkward. I will still check out the MC forums and contribute from time to time. <br>My biggest reason for the jump was the nasty and personal attacks by a few immature people.I made my peace a couple of weeks ago when I decided to stay away from the GD because of political, insensitive and totally innapropriate posts. I know, I didn't have to read them. It's just that I HAVE to be aware of and participate in whatever community I am in. That community became one that I just couldn't relate to. Fortunately, I had the option to opt out, unlike my home community where I have to participate as an elected official.<br>I hope the good sense of humor people prevail along with the tolerant people to overcome the nasty and cruel jerks who have seen fit to spew their vitriol on the world..<br>For those of you who have been here for some time: Thanks for the welcome and be assured that we are coming for altruistic reasons and, hopefully will be an asset. After all, it is all about Macs anyway, isn't it?<br><br>
