Nobody likes to be called a dummy by a dummy.

In keeping with my newfound victimhood

Men who ask are assertive; women who ask are nags.

You know, sharkfish, there was a time when it didn't feel like you were seeking karmic self-destruction. Are you ok? I was being a bit nuts lately, maybe I'm over it, maybe I'm not, but it just strikes me as you're venting more than usual. Maybe I'm reading more into it than I should, or maybe it's none of my business, but I know that I was a bit ticked when it took forever for this crowd to notice I was out of sorts.

So tell me to butt out if you like, but there's at least one real human on the other side of the screen. Just so you know.

Aaron,

Aren't you really saying that when muppet posts stuff like this, he's being assertive, but when sharkfish does it, she's just naggy?

Does muppet still post here? I haven't seen anything from him in months.

FaLing@Orbiz.ch,
--"Does muppet still post here? I haven't seen anything from him in months"--
No. Around 2 months back, muppet posted a topic telling everyone that he is going on a long holiday. He hasn't returned till now otherwise he would have posted. He might have extended his holiday. It seems, you are not that regular on the forum which ofcourse we all would not appreciate much.

Funny, Jim, hardee-har-har.

Not at all, actually. I have jumped down muppet's throat repeatedly for being a whiny little twit, but I've also offered him advice and help as well. I happen to think he's got potential, and so does sharkfish, as best as I can tell. So when people seem a bit off, I actually give a flying fuck.

What's your excuse?

Huh? Don't tell me, that you don't know he is on holiday? Everyone wished him luck when he left!

:-D

Kayjay, I was just joking with FaLing@Orbiz.ch.

Just remember, sharkfish, that "you're good enough, you're smart enough, and doggone it, people like you."

muppet? Who's muppet? Isn't he that abrasive guy who used to post here years ago? Wasn't he in Star Wars or something?
