About Me

Live Your Life - So live your life so the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their views, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and of service to your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide. Always give a word or sign of salute when meeting or passing a stranger if in a lonely place. Show respect to all people, but grovel to none. When you arise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life and strength. Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies in yourself. Touch not the poisonous firewater that makes wise ones turn to fools and robs them of their visions. When your time comes to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home. -Tecumseh

Did I or, did I not, apologize to you in HoF and ask for peace and to please Move On?

Did you or, did you not, delete your post where you said you had received "unflattering pictures" of me but, you deleted them because that was the right thing to do? Boston Bean asked you and that was the only post you deleted.

What about the thread in TMG where you all raked me over the coals when I had been banned and could not defend myself even if I wanted to? What about all that, Riff?

How about maybe sending the pictures to the person so that they can decide what to do ? How would you like it if someone said they had received "unflattering pictures" of you (what does that even mean, anyway?) And then NO PROOF whatsoever that it even occurred? Wouldn't you want to know who is going around doing such a thing as that? Who knows what pictures you got. They could easily not even be pictures of me just because the person claimed it does not make it true.

Did you not send me a PM reminding me of better times?

So, which is it, Riff? Peace or No?

Whatever you decide = QUIT bringing this up to people that were NOT involved. This is between YOU and ME.

No one else cares and if they do, I feel sorry for them because they have Way Too Much Time on their hands.

OK, Thanks ... I had read that earlier and I am having questions about CS vs ToS

Our Community Standards

It is the responsibility of all DU members to participate on our discussion forums in a manner that promotes a positive atmosphere and encourages good discussions among a diverse community of people holding a broad range of center-to-left viewpoints. Members should refrain from posting messages on DU that are disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate. These broad community standards of behavior are maintained through the combined efforts of members posting and serving on citizen juries, using their own best judgment to decide what behavior is appropriate and what is not.

Members who cannot hold themselves to a high standard risk having their posts hidden by a jury of their peers, and being blocked out of discussion threads they disrupt. Those who exhibit a pattern of willful disregard for the Community Standards risk being in violation of our Terms of Service, and could have their posting privileges revoked.

If juries are to uphold CS and if the community is comprised of mostly MRAs and the women that support MRAs ethics/morals/standards then naturally juries will come back allowing those types of posts while hiding posts that debate the status quo.

Ergo, the same with POC and LGBTs.

I don't know why it is so hard to understand why the juries rule the way they do.

BUT, if juries are only to uphold CS and NOT ToS then it seems to be that something needs to be written into CS and then also, possibly the ToS so that Admin can have recourse if they so choose.

Am I misunderstanding or is that about the gist of it all?

No, I will not go quietly into that dark night. Yes, I will have the last word in my OPs

props to Dylan Thomas

Do Not Go Quietly Into That Dark Night

Do not go quietly into that dark night,
Equality should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise women at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go quietly into that dark night.

Good women, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild women who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieve it on its way,
Do not go quietly into that dark night.

Grave women, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my mother, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go quietly into that dark night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

His Friends Are More Than Fond Of Robin

Here's a lovely tribute to Robin Williams that someone put together, using my song, His Friends Are More Than Fond Of Robin. It's so well done, I thought I'd share it. xo = from Carly Simon

"I will always love you" was written to/about/for Porter Wagoner when she left his show

Dolly Parton wrote it about a professional breakup, not a personal one.
When Parton wrote it in 1973, it was as a farewell to her mentor, producer, and longtime duet partner, Porter Wagoner, with whom she never had a romantic relationship. Wagoner was reluctant to have her go solo, to say the least. "It's saying, 'Just because I'm going don't mean I won't love you. I appreciate you and I hope you do great and I appreciate everything you've done, but I'm out of here,'" Parton told CMT. "And I took it in the next morning. I said, 'Sit down, Porter. I've written this song, and I want you to hear it.'... And he was crying. He said, 'That's the prettiest song I ever heard. And you can go, providing I get to produce that record.' And he did." She even sang it on one of her last appearances on Wagoner's TV show in 1974.

This was part of a program called "Greatest Country Feuds". It features interview clips from Dolly, Porter and Patty Loveless. The most interesting thing about this is an interview clip from the mid 70s after Dolly left Porter, he gave an interview to a local TV station and talked about how Dolly lived in a fairy land and wanted to do too much. Well, we all know now that it was Porter who lived in a fairy land because she did all that and more. He also mentions how she would turn her back on her own family to get what she wanted and how untrustworthy she is. They made amends several years later. Just goes to show you what a big heart Dolly has, forgiving Porter for all he said about. Also, included is a very funny clip from Porter's 1995 Roast at the Opryland Hotel. Dolly getting in several zings on her former boss.
