It is most prevalent on the Internet because "we" can hate each other anonymously. I really don't believe many (if any) of these folks would act the way they act or say the things they say if they were face-to-face.
Things are more like they are today than they've ever been before...

I find it amusing that because we are talking about bad manners here all the bad mannered people here are on their best behavior. Now if we could only look forward to a neighborly discourse around here some of the guys with a sense of humor will return.

I had no idea Rockwall was from Wisconsin. LOL

Al, I thought you had moved away with Chance. I'm sure you think he's one of those 'nice' guys that have left us.

As you can see Jeff the purge of happy people continues. Soon you will be the only happy one left.

Thank you for reprinting my post it needed repeating.


You're very welcome, but I was completely serious.

All magicians use mis direction. The subject at hand here is that that overall attitude at "the not very magical still" forum is adversarial, and those few who are still here has a giant chip on their shoulder.

The elephant in the room is "HATE"

Hi Rockwall,

Don't know too much about it, it was apparently the first place his famous quote about polite society appeared. Most of his early books were written for a "young adult" audience.

Thanks, Al...sorry I needed that one spelled out.

I'm not to certain, but I kind of get the feeling, that this thread
has taken on a sarcastic and condescending tone. I'm not sure though.

I'm sure you remember as well as I do all the lighthearted joking around that went on here before we all joined out separate political action committees. Before the kind of guys that only talk about their parties talking points took over all the conversation here. Before we started hating those who we disagree with.

Or am I the only one that remembers having a good laugh at the not very magical still forum? Jeff Stone must miss the good times too or he wouldn't have started this thread.

Al the question I ask respectfully is do you contribute to the hate? You had a thread about the Murdoch empire collapsing you were deliriously happy to say about how it would hurt Fox.

I am afraid my friend that a close look in the mirror might be in order prior to throwing around such stones as accusing others of hate.

We all have fallen into the partisan trap. You remember better days here too, and that is what Jeff is asking us about. There are guys here who only know how to talk about political talking points, and IMHO those fellows should not be leading the conversation. How many fun guys that used to post here are not here anymore, because every thread seems to sound the same.

Al, I remember those days. Now every thread seems to devolve into politics or religion or politics and religion. It's fun though to go back and read the archives.

Jeff is right. And to the extent that I have contributed to it I apologize. I will try to do better.

Thanks for the reminder. We all, after all, have a common love for our art and to me that's a lot more important than politics.

Good thoughts,

Bob

Thank you for remembering what it was like when all the threads were not about religion, or politics. We had laughs a few years ago, and we had three or four times the participation back then too. Now it seems to be the same three or four boring guys start the same tired old threads over, and over again. What a rut.
