I don't think I've been to a post where the dialog was strictly linear - actually, yeah, I have: where the topics were gravely serious.

Anyway, thanks for keeping me company twice in one night. No one illuminates the screen any brighter than you.

Do you remember one time when you were making a joke with an apple picture in one of her posts, and she got really mad at it and told you to stop going on about this apple already?

My memory is horrible and I don't really remember what the joke was or even if it was really about an apple. Anyway, it was funny. lol :P

You have an excellent memory, my friend, lol. I forgot about the apple manipulation :D She definitely didn't care for people going off on a tangent, not when it was her post :) She was fairly "old" and I think some part of her stiff attitude was as a result of her aging... maybe, lol.

Thanks for the memory, and for taking part on my post. You've been missed quite a bit ;D

I was deadlier on SodaHead than I am now!(hehe) The spammers, many of whom were also scammers, usually struck at night; I’d alert any new or unsuspecting members with the good ol’ can, then report.

The socks made me laugh. I’d often alert sitegoers this way:

Aaaaaand the trolls:

Other villains got a red flag. KO’d a stalker posing as a Marine with one. He called me “the red-flag witch” for driving out the nasties (it’s what Cossacks do). Oh, and I took that as a compliment — I am a natural witch and work with crystals, prayers, and the elements to heal myself and others. Glinda’s real, peeps. She wrote this loooong post.

You're of the same mind as most have been on the issue :) As long as my posts have at least some of the feedback I'm looking for, I'm fine with off-post dialog - it's when that's all there is is off-post comments that it might bug me ;)

I can relate to that - it can be a bit disappointing when I'm actually looking for specific feedback but don't receive it. That can happen if my question is too vague.
