    OK ... I'll delete my post (would you do the same please?).

    Jump ... could you also delete pretty please?

    I should've left it alone ...

    Do all the people reading the posts in this ridiculous thread, thinking about them, and then typing replies really have nothing better to do with their lives?

    Someone comments on something "out there," (i.e. not merely in their fevered imagination) and others discuss that and to and fro and veer off and so on, that's fine, just business as usual here on ESMB. But succumbing to the urge to dig into and take to heart the personal comments over and over and over again, well, here's a solution for you:

    oh, that's just a version of:

    which I posted in one of my posts.

    There is a special ESMB-culture apology, which goes something like this:

    "I have seen the light.
    You are not a scumbag at all.
    I apologise for saying that you are, sincerely, hand on heart.
    It is still true that you suck, because you have warts and dirty fingernails."

    Et cetera.

    It is a tradition around here.

    Gotta luv 'em.

    You know how it is with the ominous "they*" plotting foul deeds here at ESMB. I'm not sure who "they" are however why ruin a ludicrous conspiracy theory by asking why. No doubt Mockingbird's next blog about ESMB will provide an ignore list of names for the masses to implement. :melodramatic:

    (Emphasis mine)

    I used this clip to show what I thought about Scn once, but maybe it is really ESMB. MB is trying to resist.

    Really? I didn't know ESMB is just that awful with all the imaginary sociopathic "they" Borg drones about. Sounds very serious. Here's an idea, you and MB write Emma a pm telling her all about it with a link to MB's blog page about ESMB. I imagine her response to be somewhere between not giving a crap to a scathing J&D reply. lol.

    Just a suggestion.

    Things seem to have quieted down here a bit. Some good points have been made here and there and some (if not all) of us might have learned a few things and be viewing things a little differently, maybe even you.

    Perhaps it might be a good time to ask the mod to bin this thread and for you to start a new 'Mockingbird's Nest' thread, nice and clean. Perhaps it also might be a good time for you to delete or edit what you posted on your blog and to take a few people off your 'ignore' list.

    People are people. We all have strengths and faults. Personally, I think you add something good to this Board and bring up a lot of good points in many of your writings that others have found useful, and I've told you this a number of times. So have other exscn members. I also think your writing has improved a lot over time and you write your best when you are just writing as yourself with an occasional short quote to make a point. In fact, I think when you write that way, it's really high quality.

    Please give my suggestion some thought. Hopefully others here will give you a chance to digest it all and allow a day or two to answer and hopefully everyone has calmed down enough to make you feel safe enough to do so without going round and round on this again.

    I am sorry you felt hurt, MB. At least, that was the impression I got from your blog.

    I am going to post some threads at ESMB. If people like them great, if not oh well. In all honesty if anyone wants to insult me I am going to be much more generous with add to ignore. If anyone doesn't like that I suggest they return the favor.

    Thanks I appreciate your input. I think what annoys people is clogging up the 'new posts' listing with one person's stuff.
