You are right...it can be used as a tool to make a living. And it provides an opportunity to make a living like what Reboot does.

Funny you should mention that. My brother who owns just the 6 told me the 6+ was for females. It's big enough to find inside a pocketbook. laugh He then said if he had purchased the 6+ he would need to also purchase a clip on case or wear cargo pants & shorts because of their huge pockets all over the place. laugh

He took his iPhone 6 to an apple store where the staff increased the font size. The fonts size enlargement (is that a word? confused ) is now the default setting.

Possibly because she wants her post to be neat, she starts a new line.

First of all, to let all here know, for a thread to be deleted it isn't the whim of one mod, we are supposed to agree on it.

Second. Serious? Why. IMO you're the one taking it all too seriously. It a freakin' forum, and we're a small family that argues on occasion. This isn't a virgin thread. We'll work it out.

I'm glad you didn't delete it, thanks to me reading your last post I went back through and caught this that I missed before.



Just as funny as this old standby. But it is us, w/e, huh?

Never heard of the first thing and never followed it.

Second thing...this happens way too much and it's usually the same players. It's one thing to work it out, it's another to just bury it and then let it erupt again later on, with usually the snide remarks on both sides.

As moderators, we are supposed to be fair and nonjudgmental but I see that even we don't do that.

I wonder all the time why I bother to come here anymore and why I came back. It's clear that nothing will happen to the forums (no changes) and it'll never grow again no matter how many others we assimilate into these.

We lose people over the most petty stuff. I don't know how many people know, but Kate left because of me and my user ID number (mainly) and thinking I had a "hair trigger".

Your "opponent" got his fur really ruffled and went too far also. But this kind of confrontation has not even taken place in the Soap Box for a long, long, time.

Conversing with you is like talking to someone with a hair trigger. I haven't said anything to you since you got back but maybe once or twice. I could never tell how you might take something I say as offensive or argumentative.

I like the people who are left in this forum, but I can honestly say you are not one of my favorites. I like Facebook and spend much more time there.


I mean..really? She actually thought I had the power to do that (which I don't), but thought it was important enough to leave here. She doesn't even know me except through here and judges me harshly based upon her perception.

I wanted to post this because I hope that people see how things can get out of hand for some and they take this as their life and whatnot. And to hopefully see why I'm taking more of a "hey, it's not THAT important people..let it go" attitude.

I started working with a plumbing company while I'm going to school, so that has me really busy. Maybe it's time for me to prioritize things and relegate this type of site to the back burner. We'll see.

I'd hate to see you go, John.

There is a lot of life outside of the forums, though.

When a thread goes in a direction I'm not interested in, I stop reading it. It's O.K. if some days there's nothing I'm interested in.

The forum format is becoming passé, I'm afraid. Facebook and the like hold no interest for me - I seem to get into enough trouble with e-mail these days. The buffer between my brain and my mouth seems to be eroding.

Have a great day! smile
