you know, i'm so sick of politics.



all this veggie vs vegan vs veggie vs omni vs purplemonkeydishwasher, i mean, woops scratch that last bit.



it's stupid, it's exhausting, it's frustrating, and it's driving people to leave. can't everyone just accept that everyone's lifestyle and dietary choices are different and not everyone fits perfectly into a label?



i'm sure there are other things going on as well that i don't know the details of, so yeah knock that s*&$ off too *shakes fist*



i try to be nice to everyone and ignore negativity and be supportive when i think it's needed, and not step on any toes, but i hear about any more of this people getting offended and leaving and people trying to preach to other people about what they're doing wrong and the 'right' way of living their own damn lives junk and i'm gonna start kicking some butts. it's the internet people lighten up a little huh? if i want to go to a site where nobody gets along and it's all whispering behind backs and blatant flat out insults, i'd go find an msn group

i know some conflict is normal and to be expected, but it seems to be getting worse and worse, i don't remember there being this much hostility day-to-day til just recently (though maybe i just missed it all, i always miss everything)



/rant



i posted this here cause well this stuff is sneaking into every forum pretty much. so yeah thanks.

I'm singin' here to get rid of fear
Hope it disappears right here with the rain
But I know life is pain, not like a fairytale
Meaningless to pray, so just goin' on my way

Skinner said the teachers will crack any minute, purple monkey dishwasher.



We'll show him! Especially for that purple monkey dishwasher remark.

I would like to discuss changing the name to schmeggieboards.com and under penalty of being ostracized no one shall ever mention that their diet is anything other than schmeggie.

I know I myself have not posted as much as I used too, for fear of being bashed. But I have to admit to have met a few really good people, I try to stay in contact with.

no prob bob. personally i don't feel i've ever been really and truly bashed here, at least not to the extent that i couldn't ignore it, but i see other people get it who i don't think deserve to. i just had to say something or else risk explosion and that's just messy business. i have enough cleaning to do this week

I agree with your sentiments.



(Although, I still think people should adopt dogs instead of eating them.)



But, if the stats Michael posted are correct then VB isn't really in decline. I think the mods do a good job of keeping things in check. With several hundred new members and several thousand new posts every month you're bound to find a few that really piss ya off. Ignore those and you still have 20000 other posts to check out.

You mean VB should be a place where everyone is not exactly alike?!

Are you saying that people here fight little purple monkeys that do all our dishes





Seriouisly though, OI.. STOP FIGHTING.... Don't we have a hard enough time fighting daily against the ignorance of the meat eating masses that want to make us eat meat simply to say "ha ha" ???



Anyway, I'm here to get away from all that friction... so Baby Oil all round.... there, things should be smoother now



btw.. WAY TO GO LADYFaile!!
