Pity that all but 1 of those wasn't actual Spam but the ramblings of a upset newby. ;) So Soni has the Universe been kind to you this week? I know that it's hated me this week. :0 Col

Credit where due; this place wouldn't be the same without that there welder. Those pluses are testament to that, one way or the other.

or 'PT' ratio. I suspect the ZooPets flame wars are skewing the curve.

That there isn't a glitch in the counting mechanism, that counted all votes as positive.....

Being the Old Fart that I am I don't need any more Tough Love. After all I have the Wife who's Indian Name is 5 Horses. She's good for NAG, NAG, NAG, NAG, NAG. If what [b]SWMBO[/b] hands out isn't Tough Love I don't know what is. :0 OH I'm just using Safari to day and I didn't realize just how well the TR Pages display in it. Anyone else notice that? :D Col :0

"I held that, in most cases, divining, pronouncing, and riding off into the sunset predicated on what you think another thinks or feels is a pointless exercise. You can "validate" what you think only by saying so, leaving another only and definitively with what you said." You're a known member with a solid history. What you've said in the past far outweighs what any greenhorn can put forth. No one was going to listen to him / her over you anyway. Sometimes it's better to rest on your laurels and let your reputation speak for you, especially if you know everyone else values your opinion over that of your non-opponent.

And here I was laughing at the stupidity of the Clown. Now what can I do to Peeve off Santee this week? :0 I can of course be serious when required but that only confuses people who know me. :^0 Col 0:-)

From the moment I open my mouth, asking or answering, or anywhere in between. So do you, Colin. The subject made up the larger part of a difficult telephone conversation I had with a VIP friend not two hours ago. I held that, in most cases, divining, pronouncing, and riding off into the sunset predicated on what you think another thinks or feels is a pointless exercise. You can "validate" what you think only by saying so, leaving another only and definitively with what you said. I take, therefore, what you say about, "I liked", with a grain of salt. Less so, the "even" part, a marketing term. Forbear. I come in other matters over the years to trust much of what you say. The grain is larger, in your case. Need I tell you what it is in other cases?

I'll have to leave you with Minus Votes then Santee. :p Not even I liked what happened this week but what I found so amazing was how you shared so much personal information about yourself with a new member that you peeved off. :^0 Col
