Hello Busties - it's been a long time since I've hung out here, but I am back and wanted to say hi. I once felt a kinship with some of you and and hoping to feel that again. laugh.gif I'm a 30-something-super-woman and single-mom-of-one. I have a real job too, but just recently completed Zumba instructor training and am loving my new possibilities in life. Looking forward to seeing you on the forums!

Let us not take the proffered obvious bait. I Miss You is just trying to disrupt things.

Oh, son of a bitch! I hope it was an accident & a not an intentional thing. Disagreements happen & lord knows we need a place to hash shit out around here. The times when we haven't used it to run somebody out on a rail (I'm lookin' at that asshole Funk.) it has worked wonderfully for Bustie conflict resolution.

Well, 'cept that one time, but that was pretty much a foregone conclusion long before it headed into TIO. It wasn't a good fit & it never was.

A thousand pardons to Totomoto as I was unaware that they'd locked down the TIO thread. I propose we table it until we get the TIO back, which probably won't happen until Monday. I do not wish to gum anything up if we don't have to even if fuckstick has already spread his magic in her thread.

Totomoto, you're not new. Why are you addressing this in the Newbies thread instead of the Take It Outside thread where it belongs? By posting it here you just confuse the newbs & give a poor impression of the Lounge overall. And who has/where have you been compared to God Talk? Please, Take It Outside, thank you very much.

Let me introduce myself. This is my regular board:

http://boards.fool.com/BestOf.asp?topwhat=rat

If you scroll down you will see that I am #19 of the Top Recommended Fools, Totolapse1. But here I am considered a troll and my Home IP is banned. Now how can I be considered a valuable contiributing member at the Moldy Fool and a Pariah here?

How am I classified in with God Talk here?

AP - that post was not meant to be offensive. At work they actually block the photos so I choose blindly, and normally they are just nasty little notes that people post to each other. I was surprised by that one. Ohh Well, that is what happens when you ban my IP.

Anyway, take a good look at The fool boards. We have thousands of people posting discussing argueing, etc., and no one is banned without multiple warnings. Ia dmit we don't have spam bots, but we have trolls. shoot, if you look at my profile you will find I change my name to BringDudeBack, one of my favorite liberal posters. He was supposed to be Permabanned, but we got him back. He is GHDude at the top of the list.

Welcome newbies! Please ignore the troll!

To reiterate a helpful tip: If you'd like to avoid reading any troll posts go to My Controls. The left hand side of the page shows you your Menu.

Hi Arkadystar! Welcome to the Lounge! Have fun & we look forward to getting to know you!

I went ahead & bumped the The Scary Playground of Life - The Bullied Thread thread for you. The I'm Mad As Hell! thread might also be a good place to let off some steam since it gets more play than the bullied thread.

And a helpful tip: If you'd like to avoid reading any troll posts go to My Controls. The left hand side of the page shows you your Menu. If you go all the way to the bottom you'll see the Options tab. There is a heading under it that says Manage Ignored Users. Click on it & you can add the name of anybody irritating & you won't see their posts anymore! Awesomesauce, yes?

Hi! I have never used an online forum before, so please help me not mess it up. smile.gif I won't be *knowingly* breaking rules. I am looking forward to regular forum-ing (is there a verb for this?) if I can get the hang of the proper etiquette. Let's see, I'm 30, love books, am enjoying some cinnamon graham crackers...gee it's hard to know how to introduce oneself!

I have a specific thing on my mind that prompted me to seek out fellow awesome people on BUST. I have not had luck searching in the forum for this, so if you have any advice on where to look, or search terms, let me know, thanks! My specific issue concerns a coworker, although that part is only relevant because I am forced to see him once in awhile for work things. We're academics so we are competitive, but for no good reason. He's been a jerk to me for years, and I keep trying to forgive or at least forget, and sometimes he does too, but he always pisses me off again before too long. I get really broken up about it, and just had a fight with my husband about it, and this is driving me crazy! He triggers my issues, I trigger his, and I feel so bad about my inability to ignore him.

We are women why cant we all get along??(in regards to the last few posts seen below)
Either way, yes, I am new to Bust. I have ditched out of all social sites/de-friended all of my friends and you know what, I don't feel bad at all. It was quite liberating!! Which it has been a long time since I have left like that. So I am new and YES I plan to stay and get to know others, I promise I play well with and respect others views. Self-expression is very important to me and weather or not others see my view or not. I am not here for that. It is what life is about. PS To the other newbies fussing, please start again and put your nice face on.......madam's biggrin.gif Also I have actually filed out my info if you want to know a little about me.
