I'm putting this in the heap because I'm sure a lot of people are going to disagree with me.
This is also not directed at anyone in particular and is in no way meant to be a personal attack on any member of VB
Here we go:
I wish everybody would quit crying about how no one replied to something they posted in the Slut threads (or other threads too).
It doesn't mean you're an outcast. You simply wrote a post that nobody felt compelled to respond to. This has nothing to do with your popularity level.
Chances are: 1) You said something about a topic that has already been beaten to death and then beaten some more and anybody who's around for more than a month or two is tired of talking about it. or 2) It simply wasn't that interesting!
I've been here for over a year now and the one thing I've discovered is people get as much attention as they ask for.
If you want to be noticed be creative, original, controversial, or any combination of the three. Or, simply IM or PM the people that you find interesting and that you think you have something in common with.
If you feel left out, do something about it. Don't make it everybody else's responsibility to worry about YOUR comfort. We all have our own problems too.
Now, if people are outright mean and nasty to you, that's a different story and should definitely be dealt with. [/rant]
