Explained by Sukiesnow...

There is room for all kinds of posts...But if you feel Iike always making jokes or always being serious...this is probably not the right site for you...or you drop in from time to time. But why limit yourself to exploring only one facet of your personality...?

I am not sure about that. It can be a lot of work to be funny all the time and often humor falls flat. I like a mixture of posts. Too much of anything can become boring.

I try to ask both kinds of questions when I can and try to answer any kind of question that I have knowledge about. I will admit that I do like a good laugh though.

Hopefully one with knowledge on the subject matter but I don't mind a laugh or two either.

I agree. Sometimes a funny personal story really illustrates the subject...you are good with personal stories...but I notice some peeps are never forthcoming.

If that sound a bit like a judgment...perhaps it is...but I do love it when people express themselves that way.

People are on here for various reasons, whether it's to joke around or to be serious it's not for you to tell then this site isn't for them.

I told you before that some people have a serious job that really doesn't allow for much humor. Maybe, just maybe they come on here to laugh and enjoy whatever amount of time they can permit themselves.

We don't get paid to be on here, so I'll do what I want and I don't answer to anyone. BTW, i'm serious with people that are worthy of being serious with.

Hey I'd never want to stop you from doing what you want...It's only online after all...and everyone should be happy on here.

If someone makes a serious post they do so with the intent of being taken seriously...you look forward to what people have to say...and you notice there are almost 30 comments! Wow. Then, when you check...you find only 2 made an attempt to answer the question.

What was the point of me bothering to post?

You got that right it's only online ... It's not real life.

I get that, and I answer tons of posts with serious comments, people like Jim, Boz, Lin, Howler, Rooster (he kills me) Bub, NM and several others.

Also, sometimes posts go off rail with funny replies. That's the way it is and if the OP gets upset or mad ....ding, ding, ding hit the block button and it will all go away.

This is where I get confused. You go from saying you want to joke around ALL the time...to saying that yes...you do have a serious edge.

All this post is trying to do is raise people's awareness...trying to keep some balance...

While I do have thoughts about it...I was never "upset"...but people's personality quirks are just more noticeable now with Amirite being so small.

I do like to joke around, but if someone has a serious question with serious intent ... then I'll answer it seriously.

You need to stop thinking about me. (hehe) Now that's joking around.

Now, if you post about Trudeau's success as a PM, then you can guarantee, I will respond with a detailed serious answer.

Don't you know...I have a mad crush on you. It's that love/hate thing that works so well in bed.

So...right now we could use political posts...it's just too bad that Americans aren't at all interested in Canadian politics.

I agree, but several do know about our politics. Boz is well inclined and as well FR. Most people that border Canada.
Some know absolutely nothing and really don't care to know.

It is really appreciated when someone pays attention to our politics... I wonder if Americans feel that way about us...it's possible they take it for granted...

Looking through my recent comments, they seem to be a fairly even balance between jokey sarcastic answers and serious thoughts. This pony has more than one trick, but I won't judge those who prefer to stay in one area. As long as you're not posting vapid, divisive political drivel, I don't care what you contribute as long as you contribute at all.

I try to post a variety of questions. And I appreciate everyone who replies whether I agree with them or not. I always acknowledge their comments in some way. I also enjoy posting funny jokes as well. I love the birthday posts too. I can be serious when it is called for and I can be carefree and funny when the situation arises.

You do! It's nice that with Amirite being small with many people missing - it's given others an opportunity to express themselves - and get comfy. On SodaHead it took me almost until it closed to get relaxed.

Being serious is a lot easier than being funny... googling facts and figures doesn't take much thought.

Sometimes it's just easier to skip some questions.

If I feel the poster has a stick in their butt about wanting to get specific types of answers.

Usually, I answer questions as seriously as I feel at the time, but, sometimes I don't. Never the less, if I answer something seriously I look back at it and think what a joke it was. My jokes can be serious, seriously funny, and, my seriously posted comments are taken as jokes. The less often I make a conscious effort to preordain whether my comments are serious or a joke, I find that they either end up a) being serious or b) being a joke. I am never entirely sure which is which, and, I suppose, neither is anyone else.
