I'm just too lame to think of anything clever to say in a reply.
Please make your break a short one - you're one of the reasons I come to the Lounge.
Face it dude, we need you. Ohiosmith, LynneSin, MajorNikon, and others would be lost without you. Sometimes there isn't a need to reply, as you recently used the term "carpet bombing" for my transgression. Yeah, that was out of line. I didn't get replies on those either, but a lot of views. You're a foundation figure here. Dude. DUUDE, YO, DUUUUDDE! Shit. 10-77 on the MFM. I'll catch you on the flip side.
Somehow put all of your daily contributions in one thread (kind of like SalmonChantedEvening's LOLcats threads).
I think you will get a lot more responses that way.
but I don't think this is the first you complained about lack of replies and after the one time I did see you got a lot of a replies that was nothing more than an LOL and a smiley face. Is that really better?
I read your threads and sometimes I laugh but I don't post because there isn't a lot for me to say other than I laughed. I also rarely come to lounge. The reason I'm here is for fishwax's thread he posts every Saturday during college football season.
What I'm saying is keep doing what you're doing and don't worry about replies.
because I think you're hilarious, and your screen name is the best ever, too and cracks me up just seeing it, and it took me a loooong time to figure out that you're NOT a mom, and that's even FUNNIER...
but you never said anything back to me, so I gave up
We all do get caught up in our own lives and problems. But I know I should take the time to say "thank you" to those who make my life better. And you are definitely one of those people, so thank you and I do apologize.
This comes across as a little histrionic and GBCW. Lots of posts generate a lot of views and no replies. It merely means that there is little to dialogue about that post. It's generating 100 views...do you have an idea what % of posts generate >100 views...you'd have to ask elad for an exact number but it's in the vicinity of 10%. Most of them are in GD. Not that many Lounge posts clear that hurdle and you write about half of them.
I'd be far more concerned were getting 15 views over 6 hours with no comments as that's actually an indicator that people think you're an ass. I've had those posts.
I ran out of gas. I... I had a flat tire. I didn't have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn't come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake. A terrible flood. Locusts!
IT WASN'T MY FAULT, I SWEAR TO GOD!!!
You have to have the words, "real sex" in the header to get anybody's attention.
Now, go eat a pumpkin, lemon frosted cookie at Panera and feel better.
MFM never gave me one shitty assed dime. How about you?
Who has that much spare time to be both of them and stay fashionable? I doubt it. No way.
But in my defense, life has been busy lately.
A belated thanks for all of your posts. Too many of us enjoy them, even when we don't say so, for you to quit.
On edit: stupid spelling error
Is it that time of the month for you. Just take 2 adult beverages and get back to us when the cramping and bloating subsides.
I dont post much...I read.
I dont post because I have a DU stalker...it sucks.
Please note that I broke the apostrophe on my keyboard....
I love your stuff...
I am going to go all out tonight and post...Stalker or not...matters not anymore...or any less.
Ill be you...see? That apostrophe makes all the difference in the world...
And it came out sick.
Now if anyone can appreciate sick stuff...its you.
Dont take a break....
Give me a break!!!!!!
And after 12 years... it appears to be the very same way.
Try to bring a political post into this forum (as in "did you guys see that" and all hell will break loose.
It's the political condom of DU.
AND IT DOES NOT ENGENDER HARMONY... Quite the opposite.
It's really a shame too.
So I searched for, and found, a way to respond when I like something you've put on here. I often point out your posts to my son or husband, but since you can't see/hear us enjoying your sense of humor...
(if it goes back to the default 'crying', please select 'laughing' from the drop down list)
(here, you may select farting as well, if you want a realistic sound effect akin to that produced by the menfolk of my household)
I've noted that you have on a couple of other occasions become frustrated at the lack of replies to your posts, despite the fact that you get many, many views. I believe I note a pattern in this -- you seem to step back at a time when your health takes a dive. I have come to believe it is a symptom. Before you withdraw completely, please check with your medical provider to see that you are in otherwise good condition. With all the emotional support you get from DU, you must believe that we all care for you, even if we don't post meaningless replies to your profoundly amusing posts. Take care of yourself because we need your humor around here.
They never fail to brighten my day! The first few time I saw one I thought WTF? with all those dots, and then I scrolled down and oh shit!, coffee hurts up the nose. I love the suspense and the pictures slay me every time. Sorry you don't get more feedback, I think maybe we've gotten selfish just expecting more. Love, love, love your posts.
I'll come back to a post 3 or 4 times before replying. Sometimes I just let the person's post speak for itself, as no reply is really needed. I post when and where I can. I'll try and be more supportive.
The people here that care for you the most.
I dunno, but is that the way to treat them?
What you imagine is happening, that we are indifferent or ungrateful is clearly not true. I for one have been mostly elsewhere of late. But my desire to get told I'm not a good enough audience is limited, no matter how much I like you. And I do.
I second that thought on watching your health. Just because I care.
... one in the morning and one in the evening. That's usually 6 -- occasionally 12, not your
exaggerated 20 threads. If everyone who viewed them replied to just ONE of those OP's a
day, I'd be in reply heaven.
BTW, until you decided to pile on here, I can't find ONE of my posts EVER to which you replied.
Is that a mistake on my part?
He's done it before. And I'm sure he'll do it again.
I don't understand why people have to post threads like "No one is paying attention to me! Waah! Waah! I'm leaving forever!"
And they come back three days later.
but I don't think being snarky will change that, and it only makes for hard feelings.
I'm sorry I said you were being an ass. Something just hit me wrong reading the whole thread.
I've seen you post a dozen is three minutes!
How you do it is a mystery, but we love you!
