    Don't go away then there will be even less women. Plus- I really like what you post. If you pi55 someone off then think of it as a way of increasing their perfusion for a brief moment or too. Ignore the fuckheads. WHy can I type that but not a55holes??!! I hate the format of this forum.

    Missed the whole thing but I don't have twitter so if someone posts a link it is like a little window into that world. What happened to scrolling by the stuff you don't like. I can't figure out the ignore feature anymore so scrolling is my only option.

    Not to hijack this even more, but I mean, you do you. My first post on this topic was a general opining to everyone. My second one, while absolutely more snarky, was in response to the exact thing I was talking about in my first one. It could've easily been aimed at Handy had I seen one of his Twitter links first.

    And if you think I give a flying fuck about how many degrees people have, or somehow think responding to a specific question about a tv series in the actual TV show thread is wrong, well, I'd say you're way off base but whatever (and really, knocking me for Star Trek but not my liking the League of Legends anime? Talk about letting the hanging curveball go by) As I said, you do you.
    realize of course one can type "fuck" on here now...

Which while satisfying in the moment, isn't really any better than the Fox News poutrage of the day.
    Surely there is quite a bit of that but 1) Some occasional brevity can lighten up the mood 2) so long as it isn't overdone.

    Similarly on the one day a week I check FB I know with fair certainty when to just scroll past a post that's going to hold no value to me.

    Honestly, I don't think there are any regulars here that don't add something to the board. We're so few now I feel like our personalities come through like a bunch of friends. We all have our strengths and weaknesses and I feel like we are all parts of a really unique and great community.

    You guys are nuts. uno is one of the funniest posters here. Impressive considering his humble Hanover roots.

    2. DGF I completely missed it but I hope you don't stay away. You're a great contributor here and you'll be missed if you don't stick around

    Ignore feature exists, that could have been used. But no, he wanted to be a dick. Pretty sure I have as many graduate degrees as him but I don’t always want to use every post as a highlight of intellectualism- sometimes less important stuff was a nice outlet. Maybe if I was a dude who talked about what Star Trek show makes me tingle I would have been better off.
    he would suggest that the “nonsense” I post drives people away, I’m sure (and again nuts to think I’m only one who posts silly stuff). *******s like him are also a reason the board is shrinking but like I said, enjoy your Star Trek tingle discussions!
