Thanks, DU... It was fun while it lasted.
But this was the final straw. Well, that and a single DUer who wanted to be a dick and will remain nameless.

I've got better things to do. Like wash my hair.

Good luck and all of that.

Bye.

Edited on Thu Jul-09-09 05:32 PM by Ken Burch
We got a lot of "This's" he at ol' DU.

You could "pm" me as well if that would be easier.

28. Would Somebody PLEASE TELL ME
Would somebody -- one of you DU cool kids -- PLEASE tell me whether to recommend or unrecommend this and other threads?

It is now just so confusing -- I really do not know what to do.

I used to be able to see which threads were getting lots of recommendations -- a sure sign (to me, anyway) of what the DU cool kids were doing.

But NOW!

How am I supposed to know what to do?

Could someone please let me know what the cool kids are doing -- recommending or unrecommending???

By the way, I'm not sure if you are one of the cool kids or not.

Are you?

91. Why, Good For You!
I just warms my poor heart to know that someone considers me to be a "dear".

And it warms me even more to know that someone who is richer than I (I just know that is why you called me a "poor" dear) thinks that I am a "dear".

Thanks for the pity. I really appreciate the care and concern you have for poor me, and I appreciate it all the more since you said earlier that you really can't stand me.

I still like you, though. I normally don't care for rich folks, but you seem pretty nice -- calling me a "dear" and all.

I hope you have a nice day.

ps -- While you're "telling", could you tell me whether or not you are one of the cool kids.

Have pity on poor me, and let me know.

Thanks in advance,

Your poor, dear friend.

personal attack and alas! I am responsible.

See you around in some other thread where you will continue to ask, "Who are the cool kids?" and where you will continue to make brilliant observations about the Obamas, global warming, and the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Mods, delete me now!!!

Seriously. If I focused on the dicks that roam these threads...and on DU, dicks are like city buses, one will be along in the next five minutes...I would have left a long time ago. Then I would have missed out on the very cool people I've partied with while ignoring the dicks.

82. It was great. If you knew damned well that someone would disrupt your threads, you could stop them.

88. But not with the names visible. That was the Mother of All Bad Ideas
and a set up to hurt peoples' feelings, imho.

92. I myself have put people on ignore because *I* was having a big reaction
Edited on Thu Jul-09-09 06:58 PM by EFerrari
to what they were saying and that way, they didn't have to deal with *me*. When it blew over, I unignored. No harm, no foul, no flaming.

There are perfectly good reasons that involve community wellbeing to time out for a while. They don't need to involve making your every use of "ignore" public. That's my theory, anyway. :)

86. In all my years on the web I have loved these "goodbye, I'm leaving, talk me out of it" threads.
If I were going I would simply leave without the need for a thread announcement of my departure.

Please do not start threads to call out other members. The alert button is best used in a situation where you feel attacked.

Thanks,
