I was wondering where he was too.
Good idea, members we have known for a long time like you. A lot of members from old sites we came to trust over the years.
This sounds good to me.
Hope he checks in soon. Gumpy is cool.
He’s back. See front porch chat
And those we stay away from.
Hashbrown liked some posts in Whats for dinner Saturday or yesterday.
Venom Jockey and Redbeard seen lately?
I don't know about Redbeard but Venom Jockey is having some internet connection problems. The new place for Pess has very poor internet, they were trying to use Hugesnet but that was a very hit and miss proposition. I hope they get it fixed soon. I miss picking on them.
Ok, thanks TMT.
Also notice TsyWivey and a couple others from the old place don't post much. [ I know I got Wivey name wrong.]
Where is Skittles? Haven't seen him in awhile either.
Meerkat, he got jumped on about a couple of his posts. Haven't seen him since late December.
I just looked at Skittles profile. He has closed it off. He is not accessible.
Message I got when looking for skittles: "This member limits who may view their profile." He could still be here, just keeping his profile private.
He got jumped on about posts?
Double R: I did make several replies to his posts. I tried to make them non-threating. I did express that I did not feel it was a good idea to disparage his wife on an open forum. I also suggested he should work out his marital problems off line and not point his finger at somebody not available to defend their position. I don't and did not feel it was jumping him but so be it. It is appropriate to ask about a martial problem but it should be asked in a manner that does not belittle somebody. If your spouse has a spending problem then ask about how to setup a budget. If your spouse has a weight problem, then ask about diets. Sorry if he may have felt threatened by these types of replies. I don't advocate for the loss of any member nor do I try to silence any member. If somebody want agreements, then they should stick to a liberal forum where they all just nod their heads. This is a free speaking forum and the only way we can acquire knowledge is to learn from each others input. You learn nothing new if you only talk to people who agree with your point of view. That is just my opinion.
Makes sense @TMT Tactical
Thank you for explaining.
I was just making sure nothing out of line was missed on my part (as a moderator)
Also missing is Elgar.
How I described the situation might be wrong. I just looked for the most recent posts by him, and did not find the particular thread that I thought was the last for Skittles. He might have edited out his posts or deleted them. I remember some of that happening at the end. It may have been exactly this one, but I couldn't find what I was looking for there. It has been long enough that I don't remember the topic. It will take more research.
I thought that the comments that I read about the recommendations for Skittles and about his wife made by members were right on. He seemed to need some guidance in solving his frustrations about his marriage and what was recommended to him was exactly what he would have heard from a counselor, I thought. Skittles seemed to be frustrated in his marriage and looking for validation of his comments. TMT, you were right about him needing to take his marital problems to his wife.
I hope Skittles finds what he needs. I enjoyed some of his posts and topics.
I think she was going to quilt show but not 100% sure.
I hope these come back. I know I've not been around to comment too much, and I'm sorry for that. I try to not be online much at least one weekend day, and today was that.
I'm sure the team and I will try to find out about the missing ones.
Hashbrown was on facebook yesterday or the day before. Said he was home from the hospital and being pampered.
Are you able to chat with him at FB?
I think he had a heart attack. I will go research his posts.
This was posted a day or two ago.
He had a heart attack on 2/13. And was home. Hope he's better.
Home in a week? That's good news, I hope he gets up to speed quickly.
