that's what I mean paurths....see what has happened.......this poll has led now to even wondering about out LP nicknames.........every one of these polls lead to hard feelings and they have no usefullness whatsoever.  Most of them are popularity polls....and I do not care if I am popular or not and I know tenaj feels the same................my goal here is to win bucks....plain and simple.  I could care less if anyone likes me or not.  I am true to myself and kiss no one's butt.  I stand up for what I think is right and also stand up when I think something is wrong.  The main goal here is to "make money" not be the King/Queen of the Prom.

Thumbs up, Sandy! Thumbs Up
That is indeed the main goal, to make money.
But i must say that i kinda like "this community", or at least most of the people here. And just like you said it, i couldn't care less if anyone likes me or not, in the end we are all just "persons at the other side of the line, with our own lives", trying to pin down that one number, day by day.

Cheers
Ricky

    I like this community also.  I try not to interfere with other people's ideas.  But when stupid things are brought up like a person's name being stupid...that is when I felt I need to step up to the plate and take a strike or two.

    LP is wonderful.......most people are wonderful on here......but like every community with diversity, we will tend to disagree on a few things.  I just don't like name-calling.

    We have a wonderful mayor here (Todd) and no I am sucking up.  He and I  disagree sometimes, but I respect him as a person; therefore, I accept his decisions.  He is true to his beliefs.

    Now I have said my piece.  Good luck everyone.

      Why click on the poll at all if you find it to be "stupid" ?

      Last time I checked, YOU have to click the mouse yourself.

      If you don't like it, don't participate in it. Personally, I have followed some of the poll threads and yes, they do get off of the subject but that in itself is kind of neat- we learn a lot or if we choose not to, we can always hit the "back" button or the "delete" or "esc" keys.

      If "polls" were such a bad thing Todd would fix it to where we couldn't create them.

        If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!

        You never know when you will get another hit.

          I Agree!    Same principle with ignore, or simply skipping over what someone writes.   If it offends then don't click the link, or simply hit the back button.

          What offends me is not being able to come up with the winning number!! Crying

          Lets move on with picking numbers, sharing ideas so we can all hopefully take home the "mother lode" sooner than later!!!   Good luck all!!Blue Angel

          Good luck to everyone!

              Not to start a fuss but I like most of the polls.  I've even started some polls.  The only polls I don't like are the polls that aren't on topic with this forum.  (Much like this one.)

              How are you going to win if you don't play?

                I "eerga" (lol) with all of your points, Sandy, paurths, tenaj. But the best thing about this community is that we are a family. Family members bicker, that's just part of the drill. I even think that through some arguments I've seen on here, I've even learned a few things within those arguments. When you deal with a group this large, there are bound to be disagreements. Part of life, and I for one don't resent anyone for disagreeing. The idea is to help each other out, which I think has been happening, fights or not.

                      LOLDid you go to Chicago?  They were such sore losers.  They threw apples at Panthers' fans.  Somebody even knocked a Panthers' fan hat off his head while he was speaking in the camera on the news.  Little old Charlotte NC might be going to the Super Bowl AGAIN.

                      Ok Chicago fans.  I really don't like football so don't get offended.  I only know what you just heard me say.LOL And you have 3 chances to make 10 yards and you can kick on the last.LOL

                        Yeah, it was a blast. I heard about the apples too, but I wasn't over where that was. Actually, the Bears fans I was around were very cordial, although I think I ate too many brats over there. Nothing like going on a roadie. I am seriously contemplating going to SEA this weekend. Here's an interesting tidbit: we have won 5 playoff games just since 2003. How many has Seattle won in their existence? Four. Looks like History is on OUR side for a change.

                        I do know one thing - if we make it to the Bowl AGAIN, I will be in Detroit for sure. My in-laws live 3 hours outside of there, and I won't miss this one like I did in Houston.

                        Another interesting fact - no team in NFL History has gone to the playoffs their first three times and made it to the conference championship game 3 out of 3 times.

                        Panthers 27, Blowhawks 13.

                          cps, good luck finding tickets.....not many around under 2,000 bucks.  Steve Smith was incredible.  But sorry I was rooting for the Bears.  Now I want the Steelers in the Super Bowl.  BUS is from here and I would like him to end his career with playing here and getting his Super Bowl here.  You know what he is planning for his Super Bowl party?  He rented a fricking bowling alley....the whole building....party upstairs and bowling downstairs....he has a passion for bowling and carries a 200+ average.  Sorry to say, we weren't invited....lol...

                            LP players how do you feel about all the useless polls we have been having of late? Please indicate by choosing a percentage to indicate your disgust with all of the useless polls. What percent is the usefullness of the polls?

                            You mean like this one?

                            I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.
