Regular Free Week


Followers 0

Recommended Posts

It seems as though a lot of folks are jumping on board with this idea and aren't going to post that week.

Let me be the first to say that I definitely won't be participating in this experiment.  I will continue to post when and where I want.  As long as I follow the rules of the forums, no one can tell me not to post.

What Richard said. Me too. But maybe I'm not a "regular" (my finds to posts ratio is way too low)

 

:(:rolleyes:

 

Edit: add a few smileys for the humor impaired.

Oh yeah and,

 

I don't need to stop drinking for a week to prove to myself I can do it. :(

Well, I quit drinking for a year (March 1st is the anniversary). I wanted to prove that I could after 27 years of alcohol abuse. I wanted to see what its like to be 'normal'. Let me tell you ... 'normal' ain't all its cracked up to be. :rolleyes:

Man, some folks have so little to truly worry about ...

 

I used to visit other fora but never found one that wasn't either filled with filthy-mouthed teeny-boppers or filthy-minded adults. I was geocaching for a year before I even looked at the Groundspeak forums.

 

I've found this place to be the best-monitored and most enjoyable site I've experimiented. No porn, no profanity, no nasty personal attacks replete with name-calling. (C'mon now, if you've never been told "Shut up you ****in' noob" then you haven't really been on the web much.

 

I like it here. I use my real name here. I'll just keep on visiting and posting as I please.

 

Thank you, now I'm gonna head on back to the bar.

Yah me too. And wine. And the hard stuff too.

Ummmm... it wasn't about proving if you can do it or not. It was merely a challenge to do it to see what would happen to the forums. The bets merely started flying that some couldn't keep out for the entire week.

sea dragon,

 

Nobody is getting banned for this experiment and it is totally voluntary and I agree that I don't see it making a difference.

 

Quite honestly I would like to see the "regulars" start if they're going to start instead of continuing to talk about it here.  That's why they're regulars because they can't even stop posting when talking about stopping posting. :(  ;)

Who, me???? :P:(:rolleyes::P:mad:

 

Edit: To add a comma, because I am just like that.....

Yeah count me in. (Although some will undoubtedly think now that I'm bent out of shape with my delusions of the world's movement and persecutions. :rolleyes:)

Oh, I know that nobody is getting banned, even temporarily. I was just making a point based on prior conserns. No worries. :mad:

 

It's the "regular" thin that I was getting at. But, as I said, no worries. :(

uper,

 

are you kidding?

 

I didn't see the above as a personal attack on you but a joke and making light of heavy posting.

 

No biggie.

 

Those are my thoughts, not yours.......

i guess i don't appreciate his type of humor.

Guess it was this quote that made the other poster say what they did:

 

i will stop posting only when i am justly banned or they pry my mouse and keyboard out of my cold dead hands.

 

guess he didn't know "cold dead hands" was a symptom of lupus... :laughing: if it's not, it sounds more like an addiction than a disease/medical condition.

 

i personally didn't see it as an attack either, merely a comment on your comment. then again i'm not you and i don't have lupus so don't understand nor empathize with the hostility you felt, therefore can't really say you shouldn't feel the way you did about the original post.

Rocking the boat again RK? :lol:

or should I say Rocking the Kayak :ph34r:

 

The only thing I can see this experiment bringing about is while the regular posters stop posting, YES, others might post more. BUT, then when the time limit is lifted there will be twice as many regular posters. :lol:

 

I think I'll pass, thanks.

As much as I enjoy pointless debates, meaningless games and ridiculous scenarios, I will not voluntarily participate in this experiment.  Unless, of course, not participating is deemed to be a part of the experiment, in which case I will be participating.  :wub:  :wub:  :wub:

 

OH, o.K. ... ah ... What did you just say? ... The experiment?? Is it one???

 

Are we mice? .... the answer is 42 or 43 errr something like that.

 

:o

Same.

 

Although I will be involuntarily participating in a no post week from Feb 7 through Feb 12. Out of town looking for snow. :o
