ok, let me tackle this one..You do not owe anyone an explanation, apology or a reason why you do what you do
or are who you are. There's not just a little tension, there's a lot of it...it just depends on WHERE you post..That
strange little section of PA where Gus runs rampant. There seems to be a LOT of tension there when you step in
and post or someone - OFF WITH THEIR HEADS!! - makes the mistake of swinging the subject to pick 4 or numbers
falling in another state!!
The amount of tension also depends on a certain self appointed moderator who chooses to run *their* thread (read: place
to post..) with an iron fist and sick watch dog style where the term: Free to be Me only applies as long as it's first and foremost
in everyone's mind that the word me is an all encompassing term only fit for the self elected leader of the pack. Don't support
anyone else before/instead of showering kudos on the pack leader...that's a no no in the communist section of PA.
It is only fitting people like you are insulted, reprimanded, put down and put in their place....you rain on parades, tookool.
Funny thing is every other parade going on in this place is THANKFUL for your rain...because it means $$$$.
I've seen what you do here and what you have done since you started posting. I never once felt threatened, withheld congrats,
scolded you like you were a child, made you reconsider what you were doing....NO ONE else did either...except, well, you know...
The Queen of Hearts.
I'm going to be assertive here but it is not self-serving in any way whatsoever...tookool - be who you are, post what you want,
use the forums for what they were intended:
Places where posters can post their thoughts, their ideas, their systems, their feelings, their support for anyone THEY choose,
without feeling forced into misguided devotion, restricted, made to feel they have to be mindful of what they want to say
and who is not going to like it or make sure the boss is always first. In other words, a place where you can truly be:
Free to be Me.
Another funny, awhile back there was a thread where similar things were happening...boss lady rings a bell....things were so
**Serious...** some **Players** decided to revolt and a new thread was born...I posted there all the time, even gave it 5
stars. That was well before Mind Control became the norm.
I like you tookool. Keep celebrating, keep posting, keep it real. Last time I checked this was a free country. I never did like the
when used for a happy, healthy, helpful team player who is not interested in floating their own boat and keeping everyone in
their place. We don't need that here.
No matter what the ~signature of the day~ is.......let us all not confuse subtle, yet effective tyranny with being humble.
Stay clear of those who are arrogant enough to openly and repeatedly condemn and correct other posters for being themselves.
