as someone who can also be completely socially inept, i feel a smidgen of pity...

just a smidgen.




now buckeroo, if you don't work to control your anti-social behavior you will end up not having any friends. seriously. if that does not concern you, then i really feel bad for you.


now run along and go play in the street or something.

The only photo you looked the least bit happy was the one with your arm around your Mother. Hummm. What a good boy.

I. Can't. Even.

There are no words in the English language to even begin to describe this ineffable urge to reach through this monitor, and time and space, to slap this one!

How can I so completely detest another human being I have not even met.

Just a reminder, purely randomly of course, on how to block members that you don't want to see on your eplaya any longer. I just dug into my profile and found this and thought I might share it for folks that might not know.
1st, log in to your account,
Up near top center of the screen, click "Profile"
That takes you to User Control Panel with several blue tabs. The farthest right tab is "Friends and Foes". Click it.
Now, on the left sidebar are 2 tabs (Manage Friends and Manage Foes).
If you click "Manage Foes" then you can enter the user name of members you don't want to see.
Presto, your Eplaya is cleaned up. Things that are ignored might eventually go away.

(Maybe some folks already knew this, but I just discovered the feature and thought it might be of interest) :D

Even as a mod, I have three people on plonk. Oh, I still read their posts, and can moderate if needed, but I must do so with a conscious decision to view the post by clicking "view post". Gives me time to take a deep breath.

How do you decide if someone is just argumentative, suffers from OCD or some other form of mental illness, or is simply an ass?
