If you have a point to make to one person, send them a PM.
I'm locking this thread. Liz, and everybody else, carrying gripes from thread to thread is dumb. Explicitly speaking to them is unacceptable. In addition to wearing me down, you are wearing me down. Geddit?
To everybody--I think the last few weeks in this place have sucked. Quit calling each other names. Quit bagging on people's chosen work interests with their dogs. Quit taking the bait when somebody's teasing you. Most of all--burn this into you skull--IF YOU ARE UPSET BY SOMETHING YOU READ HERE, TAKE YOUR DOG FOR A FLIPPING WALK.
Do you want this forum to turn into every other place on the internet? Keep it up. I'm fed up with this garbage, you all are messing up this nice place that I enjoy, and that is like chewing on tinfoil to me.
