For those of you who might dismiss The Lounge as basically nothing but poop & penis jokes:

.
.
.
This is what -- at its core and stripped of all its shiny doodads and
sophomoric humor -- what The Lounge is all about.
.
(You can still say the "poop & penis" thing about me -- THAT might
very well... OK, OK... that IS true.)

to do with me "not posting"?

Gives me a place to sound off. A place to vent. A place to ask "what would you do?" or "has this ever happened to you?"

I enjoy reading the variety of posts. I enjoy the games, such as movie quotes. The surveys can be fun.

It's a comfortable place (and a great refuge from GD).

You may actually want to go SEE the wide variety of posts for yourself before making
a proclamation like that again. You mighy save yourself some embarassment.

and thought it was very moving. I was just referring the The Lounge in general. I've been here a long time, you think I haven't visited The Lounge? I assure you I have and I just don't happen to be as enamored of it as some are.

That's very, VERY different from your very, VERY misleading previous post.

"Actually, the Lounge IS basically nothing but poop & penis jokes with a VERY few exceptions."

I think that you... and people LIKE you are one of the reasons why many DUers
don't ever bother going to The Lounge (or at least don't admit to doing so). They
take your word as "Truth".

Pity.

but it doesn't negate YOUR original description. Not sure what "people like you" means but with responses like that, any questions as to why I don't go to The Lounge? I'm done now.

You have a nice day.

First, it's not much true. But The Lounge is the Lounge and it's some true. But what I don't get is why you jump into a sweet desire to share a very positive thread that lifts up and acknowledges the kindness shown to someone by a bunch of very good people and insult the poster and those posted about. And don't waste my time, if you're so inclined, with "I'm just saying and you're too easily offended." I accept Lounge criticisms in all kinds of places, but here?

Seriously, Taz, what benefit is there?

of the OP. I also acknowledged (OK, my second post) that the thread was moving. The OP was trying to say the The Lounge is much more than penis & poop jokes and I just thought I'd kick in that I disagreed. Wasn't trying to piss on anything.

Actually, there IS one (one out of TEN) post that is a penis or poop joke (and no, it is
not the one referencing a potentially phallic tattoo -- that's actually a serious question).
.
I think the credibility of one or the other of us has been seriously damaged here, no?
