Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Fri Dec 7, 2012, 05:40 PM

A Thank You card to Sagetea.

For making me see beyond a foolish, selfish anger in me, and for reminding me that we all leave marks we never know about, everywhere we go. We also leave marks we do not intend, but that cause pain anyway. I've done that, and I wish I could make it go away, that it never had happened. I'm a lazy pratt, I don't have the energy for doing things to anger intentionally. I do enough of that accidentally as it is. So I flipped. I let me get the better of me, something that never ends well. Then a certain Mr. Pitt did what friends do. He showed me what was going on here, the threads of No, Stop, You Putz, we love your silly ass. Overwhelmed. Still. I will be forever. Then, he showed me your No Words Do It Justice letter. Niagara Falls, Frankie Angel. With all my heart, thank you. It broke me, which is the only way I get better. You made it stop. You fixed things, with an outpouring of love and grief so powerful, that only a great fool, or an even greater idiot would not be moved by it. You fixed me. You may have even fixed DU. Hey, it's Christmastime, anything can happen.

DU, you have a new voice. Treat her better than you treat me. My love and thanks.

Robert John Gatenby

13. I just met the sweetest little old lady.

Every single day, I get more than my share of grumpy ass people walking in my door at work. But, I also get a handful of truly sweet, funny, kind, grateful folks.

Because of her kind and gentle manner, I knocked $10 off the cost of her bill. More than 50%. I love making people smile, when I have the opportunity.

You're one of those people I would go out of my way for. I would work late on a Friday to get something done for you. It doesn't sound like much, but it's all I have. You've given us so much more than pics on a screen. You've brightened our days when darkness was unrelenting.

You have no idea how glad I am that you've decided to stay. It sounds so selfish, but we need you.

You knew nothing about it, and seemed genuinely overwhelmed at the outpouring of affection you received then. Today, that affection has been absolutely DWARFED by a deluge of love and admiration. Do not be surprised by any of this, my friend. You are a DU treasure, and always will be.
Welcome back!

NOW, get your ass back to work and give me two song parodies and an LOL cats thread! (Cuz tough guys like us can't get too mushy.)

I Can Has Cheezburger has been bookmarked and a must go-to for just about as long.

So looking forward to Sunday morning here on DU with the LOL Cats.

This show of support here is like nothing I have ever seen before ... you are a star.

But I would've been totally heartbroken if you had left, Salmon.

I only have a dim awareness about what happened...but I'd rather let, er...sleeping cats...er...to continue sleeping.

And a HUGE thanks to Sagetea, for whatever you did to heal/fix the situation.

Thank you, Salmon, for being willing to consider the words of Sagetea.

I could not bear to have SalmonChantedEvenings LOL Cats disappear from our Sundays.

Sir, you are very much loved and needed.

71. Wow just Wow,

I am sitting here,curled up on my couch listening to the wind blow outside, trying to bring words through my very choked up throat, (because I have to speak my words aloud as I type!)trying to put into words what I would like to say. How do I respond to something so beautiful? IRL,I would probably invite you over for tea!

I was taught once that in speaking, to always make sure you have timing, content,and context.
Through all the political, professional,and personal things we go through, on a day to day basis, to have you, knowing that you do this to bring so many of us the pleasure of laughter is the greatest gift, and your thanking me? I brought forth one sad time in my life, thanking you for being there at the same time every week, and from outpouring of sincerity, I was not the only one mourning the loss of something sweet.
I am looking foreword to being here every Sunday morning with this wonderful little village. Something happened I think perhaps our hearts grew three sizes and for one moment, we saw what humanity can accomplish. And I'm sure that my little brother Dan,would have been very happy about the outcome!

So if you are ever in North eastern Nevada, come over for a cup of tea and a dip in our hotsprings!
In Light,
Kelly L. Ryan

72. Acting like naughty children

This whole kerfuffle, and numerous other flame wars I have noticed in other places on DU brought back some childhood memories.
I'm forty(almost) and I remember as a child, the discipline that worked most on me and my huge brood of siblings was being ignored. Parental Screaming, and corporal punishments just seemed to escalate our bad behaviors. In my adult life, I don't entertain or respond to childish behavior or tantrums, I just don't feed into their sick little deal. I do the same here, if I see something I disagree with, I comment and move on, or just move on. Like the OP stated, I don't have that kind of energy to engage in a battle of posts.
On matters of my posts having objectors in in the comment threads, I say, if someone is offended by an OP, comment once, and then they can just go read something else. I think there is a lot of growing up to do in the ranks, I thought that people of like or similar minds came hear to converse, share information and maybe have some fun. You can watch inflammatory drama on reality tv, for Pete's sake. Perhaps there should be a forum or group for bratty comments and jokes of poor taste.

Just know, that where ever a cute animal photo is shared, there will always be someone who was happy to view it. Thanks for LOL Cats. Ignore those too immature to see past their own deal to enjoy your efforts.

73. SO good to know you're staying.

Purely selfish of me, of course. Sundays would have never been the same.
