If you are a newbie to a chatroom, sometimes you can inadvertently ruffle the feathers of others , simply for lack of understanding some basic rules of chatroom etiquette and the history involving long time friends in the room.

I spent some time looking at the articles, hoping to find some reason for the decline in participation of chatting. I found list after list of basic behavior that most people, 'specially seniors, should have learned when we were children.

One thing that baffles me are people who don't like a conversation or have nothing to contribute and pop up and say "lurking" or "still lurking" or "this is not a topic I'm interested in"...etc, etc Either contribute or just hush up and go...

Do unto others~~~~~Salutations (a gesture or utterance made as a greeting or acknowledgment of another's arrival or departure.) are nice and appreciated.

Anyone who complains about not being greeted and then throws a hissy fit when people greet them, are an enigma..... (a person or thing that is mysterious, puzzling, or difficult to understand).... to me.

Oh and for heavens sake, keep your language clean. Ive never heard so called "sailor language" like some ladies use. If you want to tell me something ugly, at least smile and bless my heart

Any pet peeves whether chatting online or in person?

There is a popular show on television called "Catfish".

I'm a curious kitten and research things that peek my curiosity.

There is a term, "Umbrella", that refers to many disorders that come under one or more categories including mental and social disorders..

I found it interesting that anyone can find at least one, if not MANY symptoms and claim to have them.

Especially after viewing a Catfish show, where friends, made online, were duped into feeling sorry for and contributing financially to someone who was very convincing having done their own research and self diagnosis.

What we are told by anyone in a chat room or any communitative medium, is all we really know about anyone that we don't know personally.

There is hardly a family that has not been impacted by these "Umbrella" disorders and diagnosis. My soninlaw's nephew with Autism , my father had Alzheimers and Parkinsons...on and on..These things affect us all and my heart hurts for the patients and their families and caretakers.

Bottom line is, we can choose to believe or disbelieve, and remember...Saying So, doesn't Make It So

annoyingly insensitive or slow to understand.

lacking sharpness or quickness of sensibility or intellect : insensitive,

He / She is too obtuse to take a hint.

~~~~~What I Mean, Not What I Say~~~~~

Irony is "the use of words to convey a meaning that is the opposite of its literal
meaning." ...

Likewise, if I say something to you intending you to understand it one way, even
though I mean it another way,

I am speaking ironically.

This pointed out, I realize that in different cultures, countries, even different parts of my country, there are all sorts of colloquial phrases and terms.

I would think that a HIGHLY EDUCATED and WELL TRAVELED man would know this simple truth.

Anyone...ANYONE...that knows me, even briefly or from afar knows...KNOWS....that I would cause not one person, or creature any harm, in any way.

And so, I'm saying that if you feel the need to reprimand me in front of the class... (lobby) ....then maybe You can just KISS MY GRITS ... (said IRONICALLY)

~ I've heard confessions are good for the soul, if only to make people who just don't like you... very happy... and it would be so refreshing to see you two, three or four happy~

~I've been a member in SFF for many years and I like a lot of people and a few like me back shocking, right~

~For reasons, I won't disclose and at the risk of sounding petty, I flat out do NOT like some people so suck it up you little darlins, it's not gonna change because you can't and I don't want to

~Just QUIT IT with trashing me in chat~

~People who matter, to me, are laughing at you and you're boring everybody~

~I would love to discuss this like adults YET you have me in your little Iggy Bin and YET you cannot find one thing to talk about other than ME #

~I have a wonderful life, able to go and do anything I choose to and would not change a thing unless I could have my precious husband back, but he's very busy watching over me from an even better place than here~~~

~That's about it ~ you're welcome, here's your blog~ #

In the beginning or however it's phrased, there was , lets just say an empty box.

AND THEN...AND NOW,,,The box is overflowing with everyone, everything and every place.

Think, for a moment, everything wasn't there/here and now it is.

Time, Words, Laws, Professions, Recreation and many things,,as big as Cruise Liners to Compact Electric Cars.

Everything we see or experience, our thoughts have created...and our belief sustains it all.

"The Biology of Belief",Bruce Lipton "The Holographic Universe", Michael Talbot'''
So many favorites and yet, even these are the thoughts and words of each author.

Just sharing a glimpse of Tanz's interests and I didn't even get to the ludicrous notion that politics matter or the depths of my spiritual beliefs...Point being...they are all MY THOUGHtS and thus MY REALITY

OKAYYYY...Let's just get this out in the open, clear the air and BE DONE with it, once and for all~~~~

Y'all (meaning ALL of you) and I (meaning me) like, tolerate or dislike (etc) people, places and things.

I enjoy a good little dust up as much as y'all all do. (you know you do, just a little bit) It clears the air and once it all settles we can see who to dust up with next.....BUT

Folks, it's getting a little BORING and TEDIOUS having them every single day or hour, 'specially every minute!!

Oh but wait !!!...What eveahhh will we Talk, Chat or Blog about?

So many topics that are 'fun and encouraging' and then there's the 'boring and/or maddening' !!!

Examples of both are recipes, weather, aches and pains, gardens, pets, birds, fish (nooooo, no fish) and of course, lets not forget our personal finances, past and present relationships, how we were raised, how we've been mistreated, fixing' our vehicles, to work or not to work or where or if at all, our disappointments, oh hell, lets just get back to politics and stabbing each other in the back !!

Orrrrrr..We could just be happy and have FUN....I like that idea

I love you all, some of the time, a little bit, not so much, I'll get back to you on that ..
