What do you think people who take drugs, drink alcohol are doing? Human beings find ways to escape the realities of this life. They just don't always come out of it.

I agree with Premier. My comment is slightly off topic, but I feel compelled to share it.

A year and a half ago I lost a 23 year relationship with my Godson over a video game. He takes them so seriously, I made the mistake of saying the game he was obsessing over at the time was "just a game". He was terribly upset over the ending of a series of games, it was all he would talk about, he'd gone on for an hour that day.

Aren't there other things that are more important than living vicariously through a video character and escaping from life?

@CitizenX

I know you're on this ego kick BUT you can use the "Member's Home" to list out the article's you've recently commented on yourself. It's useful if you wish to engage in 'debate' and wish to see if others have offered a 'counter' to your opinions.

Kind regards.

(I wish there was some indication when you are out of space!)

As I was saying, I'm sure nobody cares how many posts I've made, hoiw many have been deleted, or even if I participate here. I'm sure there are people here who 'disagree' with any posts I make simply because I made them, and I don't care about that either. If you don't agree with what I have to say, well fine, everyone is entitled to his/her own opinion.

Since the sun has gone down and it's not quite so hot, we are going out again, so everyone have a lovely evening and if you are able and so inclined, enjoy the fireworks display.

"Scroll up to the top and click "sign in" then click "member's home"

Taaaahh Dahhhhhhh, it's magic! The number of comments you've made and the number of your comments removed."

I guess my ego never needed to investigate any of that information. It matters not one whit to me if I have posted 30 comments or 3,000 or if 0 or 100 have been deleted. Why on earth would it matter? I post when the time and inclination coincide and if what I post gets deleted, it makes no difference in my life or even in my day. I don't even care if anybody agrees or disagrees with what I post. I often post and never come back to the topic unless it's a day like today when I have more leisure time than usual, or it's a topic I have a particular interest in and am interested to see what (some) others have to say on the topic, even though this forum is FAR from unbiased or a typical cross-section of the area. And I quite sure that nobody else cares how many p

LOL CitizenX.

You are a snarky fellow, aren't you.

I like CitizenX. He makes Bobbie2 seem downright friendly by comparison.

"Now for some transparency; how many people have ever look at the size of the fecal matter they created before sending it down the sanitary waste system?????? "

I think it's appropriate to look, especially for medical reasons.

Oh but don't we all have a little narcissism in us; we sometimes like to feed our ego, maybe a little. What did I do; what did I create? Now for some transparency; how many people have ever look at the size of the fecal matter they created before sending it down the sanitary waste system??????

(I believed gavinf56 would care.)

And I would bet it is a real possibility that gavinf56 nor anybody else--save you/and or your ego--cares how many posts you've made. As a matter of fact, II doubt many people even keep track of the number of posts they've made or how many, or even if any, have been deleted.)

"To answer your question, which obvious vexed you so much that you felt the need to post it in a public forum, I believed gavinf56 would care."

As you mentioned "a public forum". The "public" at large is not interested. Perhaps you could make your personal conversations personal.

"Perhaps you could re-post it at your site."

Which would be appropriate for personal conversations, as would private email, telephone, etc.

However, a passing note that a comment was deleted is not pretentious. A count of posts? Well......

"Moms should be playing right along with their kids. That will quickly end any boys only club. My sister does with her sons and Mommy kicks butt, vitually and in the real world."--CMReeder

I can understand playing games that are educational or add some positive redeeming value. But why would they play games with them that encourage violence, disrespect, killing, stealing, witchcraft, materialism, and general law-breaking.

Hey kids let's go learn about animals today. Here, hold the nice rattle-snake; isn't it cute! Kids, you need to learn about the effects of drugs; here try some *************! Isn't it stimulating and entertaining!

Oh, it's just a game. Idolatry, pure idolatry!

Yes you are or you would have never mentioned you were deleted. Anyways inappropiate words are already censored. They do not give a reason for the deletion.

Ritty, I will post it there.

Hey Chuck, it was probably deleted for an inappropriate word. Other than that I don't care about the who or why. I am not as thin skinned as you.

So Gavin you had a comment deleted, welcome to the club.

No explanation is given or who had it pulled.

"And who could possibly care?" --CitizenX

I believed "Hey gavinf56" was self explanatory.

To answer your question, which obvious vexed you so much that you felt the need to post it in a public forum, I believed gavinf56 would care.

So, CitizenX, does that bring your befuddlement to an end?

I" just wasted 5 mins of my life reading that letter and comments.. really? this is such an issue that an LTE had to be written??"

That's exactly what I was thinking in my comment of "seriously??" Couldn't imagine someone actually writing a letter to the editor about something so stupid and irrelevant to the community at large, and worse yet, that it got published!!

I get it! Because Republicans don't care, right? You are such a more caring person. Delusion requires constant reassurance, doesn't it?

SHAM: "constantly hearing that only wimps & Libs think-their-way-thru whatever situation...and, you're surprised? "

I agree Shaman Libs could "ONLY" think-their-way-thru something based entirely on unrealistic scenarios." - Premier

Sham "I'm sure that means something...to someone...or, at least sounds cryptic-enough (to the average T-Bagger) to make them think something profound was vocalized."

It's called "poking fun at you". Nothing "cryptic" or "profound".
