Personally, I don't think this is a place to post your private messages on either. Private means just that keep them private! No one wants to read or see your private messages, we all get tons of them everyday! No need to praise your self let others do it! To be humble is wise. Turn your spotlights off we can already see you!

Clairvoyance. My message was placed on the forum. It did not attack anyone in general or could you see that?

 

Speedy,

 

Well you are too ignorant to see that I was agreeing with you! What's with the defense? A strong defense is only good in football! Drop your guards!

      Snakeyes - I actually thought that was funny and I do not feel you nor anyone on here is ignorant.

      :)  I got a good chuckle over your quote.

        Reposted from another forum .. fits well in just about every form. ;)

        -----

        The Natives ---> They have been on the boards for ages and know everything about everyone, sometimes even other people's favourite color underwear. They only notice n00bs after they've been on the board for a few weeks and sometimes even months. They tend to strut a lot.

        The Flame Throwers ---> They don't post much unless it's something they don't agree on. They love starting flamewars in a subtle way and then all of a sudden backing off with hands in the air stating, "You started it". Don't get in their bad books, they will follow you around on the forums and rip all your posts to shreds. They tend to make good friends if you fall into the same category.

        The Oldies ---> This bunch of easy - going twenty somethings stick out like an oasis in a desert between the hormone driven teenagers that pretty much make up the rest of the forums. They are wiser and much calmer. They tend to get nostalgic about the eighties.

        Generation X'ers ---> Basically they rule the forums by majority. These members can mostly be found riding the waves of ecstacy or down in the gutters of rejected love. They cycle through the opposite sex on a weekly basis. Fun drug to the oldies, keeps them young at heart. Physical characteristics include fashion labels, gel and sometimes prone to spots. Lot's of scars on their skulls from bumping heads repeatedly on life's blackboard.

        The n00bs ---> Two kinds have been noted. The first lot are scared of the natives, cautious and very apologetic when making mistakes. They don't last very long on the forums and normaly disappear out the backdoor after a day or two. The second bunch of n00bs are determined to make an impression. They will spam the forums in their first day with hundreds of questions written in illegible colours and cryptic languages. They are oblivious to rejection and persist in annoying the natives to such an extreme that they are accepted into the circle as another doomed forum member. They tend to stick around and become indisposable.

        The Spammers ---> Lol, yeah!

        The Einsteins ---> Respected and feared for making you look like an idiot. Source of wisdom and knowledge. Saves other members time by not needing to read books or study for exams. Use big words that IQ - deprived members and some foreigners don't understand at all. Use a lot of quotes.

        The Me, Myself, and I'ers ---> They only care about sharing their own lives and don't give a diddely about yours. They make friends with the other Me, Myself, and I'ers as they have a mutual understanding of being self-centered. Their posts always start with "I" and "My". Also have blank expressions in their eyes when talked to, they do not comprehend other human voices. Their worlds are small... very, very small.

        The Jokers ---> Very, very dry. Sometimes dual character with the Einsteins. Mostly misread by other members which leads them to being bitter, provoking further dry and lost humor.

        The God --->There can only be one here, left void by me, what with being modest . This speciman does not make a regular appearance. He/She is enigmatic, dark and comes in the mist. Few people have seen what he/she looks like but it is said that his/her beauty will leave you blind and drain your soul.

        The Unbreakables ---> They can withstand any flames thrown their way. They tend to annoy some forum members and end up being flamed for their ridiculous posts. What is interesting about this is the fact that they are completely immune to hints and even direct insults. Further study might shed some light on this phenomenon. They have a very thick skin, some have scales as well.

        The Cry Babies ---> Sensitive and sometimes quite naive. They do not handle criticism well and rattle their toys around when they feel neglected. Not at all a bad species though, with a bit of nurturing and love they can grow into good friends. They are soft spoken but sometimes whiney.

        Santa's Little Helpers ---> These guys and girls fill the void the natives left a long time ago. They actually reply and help the n00bies where they can. They have studied for years and some deserve to be called Professors. They take their job seriously and you will not easily find them in the sensless posts made by the rest of the crowd.

        The Hormonians ---> I have mostly spotted these in big groups of young males, although, some females seem to join them at stages. Have spotted a monthly pattern but will have to look further into this. They do not seek any form of emotional or friendship bond with the opposite sex but purely a mate to release sexual frustration on. Words like "chickenbreast" and "c*m here" have them excited about being part of such lovely forums. Because of their small size it has been a bit hard to get hold of one. This analysis might also have an effect on them and leaves me thinking that this might be a good way to trap one as he/she will come closer for further inspection.

        The Compulsive Liars ---> This group of lovely people think that the internet makes them invinsible. "Invinsible I say!" Everything they own, say or do is bigger and better than the rest of the peasants on the forums. They also tend to think that everyone is stupid enough to believe everything they say. May share characteristics with the "Unbreakables" and get involved in flamewars with the "Flame Throwers". They keep extra viles of oblivia potions in their backpacks in case they might be found out and need to act nonchalant.

        The Darkies ---> Pessimistic, analytical and well, dark. This group doesn't really fit into any of the other groups, besides, they don't want to fit. Social outcasts that find comfort in the faceless world of the forums. They only come out after dark and can only be spotted by tiny pieces of metal caught in the moonlight on their black clad bodies. Thrive on deep, intense,rhythmical, melodic sounds. This audio might also provoke repetitive, vigorous head movements or elegant chanting with the upperbody and arms. Beauty in darkness, ugly as hell in the sunlight.

          I Agree!That was one of the first things Todd told me, 
          A private message is private,
          it is not intended to be posted on the board,
          unless you and the person
          agreed.

              Todd,

              It was not posted in this particular thread, but I do believe it's why this thread got started!

              There was PM's posted on the forum however.

                Yes NodTntea is posting pms from her very important people group and some members feel it is over the top, unnecessary, and an attention grapping grandstanding cry for "look at me" We all get pm's of thanks and so on and help other become winners and we don't pull out the pms.  It's not the only time she has done this.  She posts excessively when other systems get the limelight.

                One member referred to the VIP group as "disgusting" (and it's not Laverne) because of what it stands for - It implies not being a platinum member you are not a very important person.  Don't make me prove it because I can.  But of course that would be a private message wouldn't it.  Maybe we should get a sticky forum that I've seen on other forums.  Let it be a bitching post to vent.

                  Tenaj,

                  From what I understand, she coined the term VIP to refer to Vtracs, not a "Very Important Person", as you say.

                  It is equally uncalled for you to come onto this thread and she that she is "over the top, unnecessary, and an attention grapping grandstanding cry for "look at me".

                  She has not insulted you or anyone else, to my knowledge, so I think it's totally wrong for you to say that.

                  If she said one thing in her blog months ago, then that is still no reason to come on here and slam her.  We've all said things at one point or another that could have been better rephrased, so I don't understand the need to continue this onslaught of negativity.

                  If you don't want to upgrade your membership to gain access to the blocking features, then you'll need to put up with looking at people's posts that you don't agree with, that's just the nature of a big forum.

                    By the way, I think it's great that Tntea is describing her methods and contributing to the forums.  There are not a lot of people doing that.  Lantern is the only other person I can think of who did a "teaching" series of threads to explain a complete topic (on filters).

                    And there is nothing "grandstanding" about her post.  That's a ridiculous thing to say.

                      A) LiLSpeedy should get his computer back here and explain in English exactly what he is talking about. This thread as it was originated, without some sensible explanation is, for lack of a better word, stupid. It may or may not be related to tntea.

                      B) This is not a complaint, I am just making an observation. I can understand where tenaj is coming from because others on here, males, not females have spoken about "grandstanding" "over posting" call it what you like.

                      There may not be a cure for it but I am sure you know that it displeases several people.

                        Yes NodYou asked so I told you and it is the truth.  It has nothing to do with what happen before.  I'm not holding a grudge on that because I know she thinks she didn't do anything wrong.

                        It's about what's happening now.  It's about excessive posting and grandstanding and posting private messages to ego trip.  I'm not slamming Tntea, she is slamming herself.  It's the same old thing and the same old complaint but others are speaking out in their blogs and threads about it.  I'm just telling you what other people have said. 

                        And this is what some people have said. 

                        What's up with Tntea posting her Private Messages On the board? I mean like we want to see them? Does she have some kind of bragging problem or what? I mean I get tons of PM's all the time thanking me for the numbers I post and they thank me cause they have won off them too! I also get PM's for specific guide numbers here are 2 examples:

                        ______________________________________________________________________________

                        Ha! I just read his blog entry, I had to look it up because I did not see it right off, boy he pinned the tail on the donkey ........Yes He sure Did! And we both know who he is talking about! I thought the very same thing about her postings why in the world does she have to have 15 separate posts in pick 3 and 4 is one not sufficient enough? Really it is annoying and Rick G should of posted his comments on the board because I would of posted in and Agreed with him 100 percent because today I was so very tempted to say to her, Why are you posting your Private Messages here on the board? That is why they are called private so KEEP THEM PRIVATE! WHO CARES LOL!!!! 

                        ____________________________________________________________________________

                        Yes I noticed!!! It's Really Annoying! LOL

                        ____________________________________________________________________________

                        lol, i know what a VIP is, a Very Important Person, but i felt nothing but disgust (perhaps not the correct word, but i guess it makes clear what i mean) when tntea wrote that,
                        it is as if when one has a default membership she/he is a bum or so...
                        The first 2 weeks her profile "said" she was already + $5000 using her vtracs, i wonder, after another 6 weeks, is she is at + $20 000 now or so
                        don't think so!

                          Truecritic what on earth are you talking about? Are you that nieve? If you are not smart enough to comprehend what is being said and to whom it is being said to, then don't try to assume what is being said until you get an understanding of what is being talked about.

                            Oh yeah, well that explains everything.
                            Like I said this is stupid.

                            Your title doesn't even make any sense. What is "post to post?" Then you say "forum to tal" is that supposed to be "talk" - if so, what do you mean by "the forum" this whole website is a forum.
