THURSDAY'S QUESTION OF THE DAY

OK friends gather around we've got some talking to do. I've received a rash of letters lately asking who our new friends are. Don't worry; I'm not upset about it. Heck, I've wondered the same thing in fact, I've written the names/people in question and asked them were they someone else before this "new persona". I even think its fun to try to figure out who some of these people are because I'm no different than anyone else, I'm naturally suspicious but when it all boils down I really don't care. None of these "new" people have been rude to me, have troubled me and they've even added to the discussion so let me explain.

First, do you think everyone on here is actually who they appear to be? Is everything they claim truthful or let's be politically correct and say have they allowed things that aren't truthful about them be portrayed as fact? To hell with pc, there's people on here that lie, have lied and still lie. Nope, I'm not going to name names, we all know of many of them. I will though say Navy Captain anyone? Damn I crack myself up sometimes. The difference is, some finally come clean, some may never and some may defend their fantasies in the face of facts and it's up to each individual to decide do they value that person or not in spite of it.

Second, what is the reason for the new names? Did they feel threatened but still enjoy the company of many that are here? Were they an ass but really want to partake in this internet society created and want a second chance? Did they get tired of persona number one and now they want number two? There's good reasons and there’s bad reasons, but if you want proof positive truth you're either going to have to take the time to get to know them (772.807.0092 yep, you want to know me, call, I've broken yet another cell so leave a message and I'll call you back.) and even then you still might not "know" them, or you're going to have to accept that you'll never know.

Also, many come here for a since of community. Ok, for those that would rather call it gangs or cliques have at it. Now not all come for that same reason, even those people that interact in a crazed QOD blog. No one should be harshly judged for the amount of involvement or participation they wish to indulge in. As an example, I'll harass Bob now and then about his blog, but I don't think any differently about him because he's decided to close it.

Lastly, how many times has someone that is genuinely new here, been thought of as a troll. Should the onus of proving themselves that they are "someone" be theirs or should they be welcomed as fellow bloggers? That's a good question and I'm not sure I have the answer. We would all like to look good and say, "harrumph, why I always welcome truly new people and I'm so good I always know a phony when I see one" as our nose flies in the sky. Truth be told, new folks, some of you we're going to accept straight out and others we're going to question and in both cases we'll probably bat around 50/50 so new people, forgive us, we're just like you, not perfect.

So to wrap it up, new people, you're welcome here. I might or might not think you're someone else. I might spend time speculating who you might be and I might not. I might ban you if I think you're an ass, but it's my blog. I get to keep the peace or allow the riot as long as I contain it under Admins standards; such is the way of blog life. Everyone else, feel free to comment, feel free to give it a pass, but it does lead to a QOD:

Do you have something in your past, present or future that no matter what you wouldn't share it on a blog and would you do anything, even lie cheat or fly to keep it from being known?

I've been warned that playing around your puddle may not be a wise move.

cat......without knowing it...or else you are deceptively clever...but i'll believe the first...you've brought up what is to me the most hilarious.....concept of blogging....the need to "warn"......beware the boogeyman....as if people aren't bright enough to read anyones blog and make an intelligent decision....you're right though....this isn't a blog for the thin skinned...you have to accept that what you say may be challenged....and if proving your point is valid is fun to you....then you'll enjoy yourself...if not...there's always the sidelines...sit back....make your comments to yourself...and enjoy...and when it gets too bad...you can always 'warn' others of the perils of the QOD...i need all the free advertising i can get ...LMAO

Never been anyone else but me. Are there things I would not reveal in a blog, sure, it is none of their buisness. If I can answer something directly I will.

I do have a short ignore list, it makes my world a little brighter. My 'ignore' category is comprised only of people whose comments became personal attacks. I ignore cyberbullies.

I like answering your QOD ric. I don't know why, I find them oddly compelling, like a large puddle of mud infront of a child dressed in white. It's almost impossible not to want to put your foot in it. :P So, this is me. With both feet in it.

I've been warned that playing around your puddle may not be a wise move. Some of the puddle players around here can get rough and tumble. I'll watch for that and continue to play. Unless you ban me. Or I ban you and then it will be an ignore on the count of three, buttons to be hit at dawn, no seconds, and ten paces out.

Gotta love it..other blogs are popping up..pretty much all making fun of me and the fact that I was banned today from a blog..Funny how they knew..lurking here I guess.

Who are these these horrible people. They chastise this group for being mean and isolated and they find humor in a situation that clearly upset me? So glad they can preach their goodness all the while making fun of someone they don't even know...

Your right Bob..this place sucks sometimes..but I am not going anywhere.

Yeah but we were debating about weather then, it was more of a community then. This myspace attitude that these blogs have are crap, well at least for me they are, like I said some enjoy that stuff. I have always tried to maintain the integrity of these blogs, but I surrendered months ago. Oh believe me I ignore stuff, I dont even come on here much anymore, but it just saddens me to see how this place has fallen down the tubes. Like I said the ones that stick around and blog love the Drama.

I saw that comment..and they probably think it is one of us...pretty crappy if you ask me.

Bob, as your kids get older, you will learn to pick the joy out of things..There are parents out there who are nuts..and should not have kids..but you are stuck with them in sports and school..you just find the ones you like and ignore the rest...
