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]

This would be why there hasn't been a person on VB in over two years that didn't know me

Quit whining about other people crying about feeling like outcasts.

This post didn't mention me once! I feel like such an outcast.

Go in there and tell everyone that you think the thread is dumb and a waste of bandwidth.

It could also be the case that what you said was just so incredibly clever and wise that everybody was just flabbergasted and utterly lost for words. At least, that's probably the case with some of the not-respnonded-to posts that I've made.

I no longer post here after VB was sold in 2012. (See my profile page for details.)

Goodness....it seems like every time I log on lately there's a thread in the heap complaining about another aspect of what's annoying about VB. Maybe we can just have a 'what's annoying about VB' thread and then if you feel compelled you can post there.



Yes, sometimes people do ask for attention...it's okay to ask for attention. It's okay to say to 'the air' I wish someone had responded to a post I thought was really funny. It's okay to act like an expert about something you sort of know about. And it's okay to complain about it...I'd just like to get back to discussing more 'real' things.



And now I'M whining!



I just think all this talk about what other people are or aren't doing that's right/wrong or annoying is kind of annoying.



Anyhoo...

Just be thankful I told you about the slut pm's. Which, by the way, you've never taken advantage of.

Way to whine about people who whine about people whining! Not that I'm whining about it.

Newstars, sometimes I absolutely love you. Can we get married? That is if I believed marriage was a successful undertaking, which I sometimes don't, sometimes do.

If someone thinks they're the only person getting ignored, check out the "Unanswered Threads" button in the Quick Links menu. There are hundreds of threads that don't recieve a response for whatever reason... and most of them are by Michael
