  4. I'm starting to understand this, yes. At least...

    I'm starting to understand this, yes. At least I'm above such behavior for the most part....I'm sure that over the course of my 10 plus years here I've sunk to it at some point - I'm no saint. But...
  5. Geila, Thank again for your support. Are they...

    Geila, Thank again for your support. Are they really still harassing and poking? I have the individuals you speak of on ignore as we all know by now - the way the software is set up is if you choose...

  7. Thank You. I could not agree with you more,...

    Thank You. I could not agree with you more, Geila, and I share the same lack of understanding regarding issues you have highlighted. Furthermore, not being directly involved in this, you have...
  8. Here's a neutral take I have on this whole issue...

    Here's a neutral take I have on this whole issue of "negative threads". This is a board concerning living more simply, correct? Are we in agreement on this much, Alan? Moving on from this point,...
  9. The line of shutting down that which you...

    The line of shutting down that which you individually and the line at which society as a whole disagrees with. How do we define this for ourselves individually, and how does/should society as a...

    Two things come to mind for me here, Alan, being:

    A). We have often disagreed in the past, no? Notice that I did not put you on ignore regardless. Why, you ask? Which leads me to B). -

    B). ...
  11. I like your take on this Catherine, ESPECIALLY...

    I like your take on this Catherine, ESPECIALLY the part about being OK with just walking away when that's the wisest thing to do. What a life lesson for me personally here! I'm not one to walk away...
  12. Morelia is a place I'd very much like to visit,...

    Morelia is a place I'd very much like to visit, too, along with Uruapan. There's a lake somewhere in there - by Patzcauro, I think - where there is an annual butterfly migration that is supposed to...
  13. I agree with you 100% regarding college...

    I agree with you 100% regarding college students.....I agree they should not be able to shut down campus guest speakers due to not caring for speech content. I've even seen youtube videos of this -...
  14. Something else funky about the software here - it...

    Something else funky about the software here - it seems as if I still have access to the Moderator area of the board. Given that I have stepped down I'm of the opinion that such access is no longer...

    Thank You, Float On. Here's an interesting bit of news about crossing the border again in the future. My husband has a cousin he likes that's having a Birthday soon in Nogales, Mexico and he wants...

    My take is that of course certain folks here have blocked me and for this I say more power to them! I mean this with no snark, either. If what I post is so distressful to them, by all means they...

    Geila, color me as hoping this brouhaha (I picked up this word in Mexico years ago and have always wanted to use it lol) will help in calming things down. I for my part will be keeping certain peeps...

    On the one hand I do see you have a point, yes. On the other hand, I value my peace and am done with my role as forum door mat. Perhaps blocking for the long term/permanently from others is to...

    TT, I'm just curious....what do you think it was in your life that aided your ability towards understanding that in the blink of an eye you could be sitting in your client's chair? I understand this...

    Interesing post, ANM. One of the reasons I have appreciated reading YMOYL is the emphasis on detaching yourself to some extent from what you do for money - that clicked with me instantly. I...

    Not in my case. I value peace. Rob
  22. I believe you are so dead on here, Geila. It...

    I believe you are so dead on here, Geila. It really is true that some percentage of the population is completely incapable of putting themselves in someone else's shoes.....and that some people...

    Folks, those of you who wish to ignore me, please do so, whatever glitch was preventing this seems to be fixed. I of course have my own list of those who I will be ignoring and maybe now there can...

    As a general post to no specific individual, those who I have blocked/put on ignore that did not have Moderator status I had no problem blocking. Something seems to be amiss with those who had (past...
