Lost my shape, trying to act casual
Can't stop, I might end up in the hospital
I'm changing my shape, I feel like an accident
They're back to explain their experience
Isn't it weird, sounds too absurd to me
Wasting away and that was their policy
I'm ready to leave, I push the fact in front of me
Facts lost, facts are never what they seem to be
Nothing there, no information left of any kind
I'm lifting my head, looking for danger signs
There was a line, there was a formula
Sharp as a knife, facts cut a hole in us
There was a line, there was a formula
Sharp as a knife, facts cut a hole in us ...



Be well, PW. Be well, everyone. Each and every one of us.

Plant Woman, I hope you find what you need elsewhere and/or return in time.

@Kael: I have requested a self-ban at other forums in the past. For me it was really a combination of knowing I lacked the willpower to stop posting and wanting to call attention to what I considered weaknesses in the community.

Someone pointed out that the :ff: is not a "safe haven". This is true. It is a largely unmoderated, publicly accessible discussion board with a large number of opinionated and often deliberately irreverent posters. I will always be more comfortable in this environment than in any private and/or moderated environment because I think the former encourages malicious gossip and the latter is too stifling. That said, I don't feel comfortable telling people at work about the forum and I don't divulge everything I'm thinking, but these are prices I'm willing to pay for having a place like this.

This. A thousand times this. Despite the fact that we obviously have some people who don't get along; a few who wait with a can of gasoline to pour it on any little fire that starts; and a few more who obviously don't realize that, despite the obvious fact that this is the internet, there are real people on the other end of these computers; it's still the optimal environment (in my not-so-humble opinion anyway) for that very reason.

Is this why you're a good poster here and such a shitposter in the private forums?

I've always thought that internet forums belong to the category of things simply not discussed in polite society. No matter how good the forum, it's an embarrassing thing to talk about. Face will be lost.

PW, wish you would stay.

May the wind always be at your back and the crewman who has never bathed always be way downwind from you.

PW ended up quitting that other form too, because of me. I'm a dirty rotten bastard too, I guess.

Oh, you want the goods. Well, okay. I said some less than flattering things about my wife in my personal blog in a private forum that I joined so I could say things I couldn't say to anyone else in the real world. PW took issue with what I said in a comment on my blog. And I admonished her for not being supportive of me like I was for her when she complained about her husband, who ended up leaving her. I told her that I thought her own issues were coloring her view of me. Boom. Gone because I am a mean bastard.

You wouldn't post that and expect not to be asked. :pat:

That's... Unfortunate. I wouldn't hold you responsible, I certainly believe she'd be sensitive about things like that given history. Leaving forever seems a bit extreme.

You are an asshole... but it's no reason to leave a forum over.
It's unfortunate plant woman left, I think that she has issues that occasionally tell her to hit the escape button.
