4. You don't tug on Superman's cape

You don't spit into the wind
You don't pull the mask off that old Lone Ranger
And you don't mess around with MFM.

12. It's the election. Too many distractions. Everyone is giddy.

Things will settle down and it will be just you and me, MFM. Just like in the, er, last week.

10. I appreciate it, but a rec without even a simple "k" reply still lets a post just slide down quickly

.
.
.
Out of those 6 posts, ONE of them DID get recs -- SIX of them!!! But it was
still sliding on down neck-and-neck with the 5 that did not get any recs.
.
There's a number of people in The Lounge who post regularly -- finding stuff
that will make you laugh, interest you or provide some relief of some sort or
another. You might think of a reply (even that "k") as a little pat on the back
recognition of their efforts and an active expression of your enjoyment. It's
such a freaking SMALL effort on the viewer's part -- but it would be a BIG
boost to the morale of those posters.
.
.
.
If you don't get ANYTHING from their posts, don't do anything. And sometimes
not doing anything EN MASSE -- that's the message you're passively sending.
.
.
.
"Your posts? Meh."
.
.
.
6 posts. 858 views. 1 reply.
.
.
.
I don't know about anyone else, but that certainly inspires me, eh?.
.
.
.
(Edit to add: ) I see now you meant THIS OP -- thank you... AND you accompanied
it with a reply.

11. dont feel bad

 

post stuff that interests people. I posted a favorite restaurants post..got lots of views and comments and I enjoyed reading about others experiences.


If you want to get feedback, posting "favorite" type posts will get you a lot of responses because people are eager to share their stories and experiences.

15. "k" is hilarious enough. I reply to folks when I don't have anything clever...

.
.
.
... or funny to add. Sometimes, I'll use the thumbsup or applause smilies to
interact and let them know that I appreciated what they posted. Not all the
time, but once in a while.
.
.
.
Participation by casual visitors is WAY up right now, so these numbers are
off... but normally, a good post often gets somewhere in between 10 & 25
views per reply.

19. :-D That reminds me of something I saw yesterday afternoon

I was looking at Facebook and a fly landed on the right side of my computer screen. I noticed something moving slightly on the column of tiny 3/8" profile pics of FB friends... the fly was rubbing its "hands" together over a famous former S.F.talk show host's head, as though it was giving him a scalp massage.

22. Yes, we care enough to look.

And, sometimes, as in my case, numerous stresses in our lives sap what little energy we have to reply. But, it doesn't mean we don't appreciate these posts.

24. "k" for "kick" -- see how little energy that takes (sorry -- but the "no energy" reason? --

Oh, hell, Never mind. I'm sorry I brought it up.

Fuck it.

23. Love your posts!

The Lounge, for me, is the best place in DU.
And MFM is the best thing about The Lounge.
