    I suppose I am just about done with the whole thing. I don't see any point, trying to make things interesting, trying to delve into topics in a meaningful way, or putting my sincere thoughts out there, taking the time to really think about things, and then pose them in a way that will cause people to engage.

    Starting to look like a big waste of time. Might just decide to skip it, altogether. Find something else to keep my mind stimulated.

    Going to have to ponder that a bit, and make up my mind.
    Hey, I don't mind discussions.. and I don't even mind arguing when we disagree. It's just that we would have to choose a topic that we are both interested in. I do not like feigning interest.

    So by your definition, the only way I can be considered a 'veteran' SooNet'er is by burying the hatchet with you. Hm. Interesting idea.

    You didn't ask Bill for his permission to post that comment. Back of the line. No soup for you.

    Well, all things being equal, at least we wouldn't be at each other's throats. You have come back after being absent for quite a while, .. that is what I meant. Now that you are back, you are kinda', maybe, looks like, should be, a veteran SooNetter. If you want to bury the hatchet, that would be good, .... just not in my skull please, .....

    Yeah, .... DQ would make the list, .... forgot him, ... even though we are also Facebook friends, .... sorry pal. I would also add Freebeer just because he posts so damn much stuff that is OK, ...

    I signed up to Soonet months before moving to town from the Niagara Region. When I introduced myself as someone moving to the Sault, the response was welcoming. Nice.

    I don't sense that here anymore. Not for a very long time.

    That's okay Huggy, I didn't make the list either. lol But to answer the question. Why I quit posting so often, is because things just became too "nasty" here, alot. Barry has been doing well curtailing the urge he must have to hit the "banned" button lately. There have been two on-going threads that have become "bitter". I did want to respond to each, however, I really didn't have the time or energy to spend "defending" my position. Doesn't mean that I can't or wont defend my position, just means that 'I'll pick my battles". Back to Barry, you nearly qualified for wings with both of those threads.

    That's cool Handyman, you are forgiven for forgetting me.

    I was a little hurt that I didn't make the list, then I remembered I was #1 on the Socks Ignore List and I felt much better.

    One is inaccurate, and one is (oh so subtly) "nasty". If we can avoid these, things would go better. .

    It's not impossible to bury the hatchet.

    Last time I buried the hatchet I got charged with obstruction of justice. Never again.

    Can't do that, sense of humour yes, but not enough posts to pass the test. I will add Riggs and Huggy85 though, .... forgot about those guys.
