That might be your best pun ever, P.
Yeah, I was rather proud of that one myself.

Dear Abby,

I am a member of a group of imaginary people who gather each day on the internet to discuss the dilemmas presented in your column. Don't get a big head, as we also do this for Ask Amy. Anyway, one of the senior imaginary persons in the group has made a HUGE deal out of contacting SOME members of the group via personal message but NOT others! I'm a bit put out by this. What gives her the right to do this? Anyone with a lick of sense knows when they get a 'PM' from someone whether it is on Topix or Facebook or any other social media. For all I know she has sent out actual mail and even taken out newspaper ads alerting SELECT PEOPLE to her 'private message'. What's the point of a PERSONAL message if you go everywhere on the internet ANNOUNCING THAT YOU SENT SOMEONE A PERSONAL MESSAGE...while not sending others...anything....?

I guess my question is, is this sort of passive-aggressive messaging here to stay or is this just a cry for help?

There is a meme (I think that's the right word) going around FB with different animals using puns to communicate. Makes me think of you every time I see it.

LW ONE;
you are not an actual "Member" of any group, imaginary or otherwise. You are just a "Lurker" and therefore not afforded the full rights a member enjoys.
There is no record of any dues being paid by you, nor are there any witnesses to vouch for your membership into said group.
Simply put, your are not on a need to know basis, and leaving you in the dark about such things is exactly where the group likes you.
Hope this clears that up.

I didn't get the memo!

Imagine that!

She's probably sending out a private message cause of you are a pos and no one likes or wants anything to do with you or wants you involved in anything.

No, I did not say anything like that, you just did.
I only said you are not part of the group.

Someone's feeling left out...
If you were a true lurker (amateur) you would know what has happened and why PEllen is trying to get an important and time-sensitive message to all.

You seem angry, like you recently discovered that someone you had been awful to here turned out to be someone from your past here....i'm seeing this person as a poor typist....good-hearted liberal...you with lot's of anger...embarrassed at the realization that you were emotionally abusing a nice person of better standing in the gang than you....

Interesting...

Good morning All! It is still in the single digits here, but the boys are back to school today :)

I had a dream about Angela last night (no, not that kind of dream). I woke up excited to tell her about it and then it hit me that she's not going to respond. I literally felt like I had the wind knocked out of me.

Must go out and do something kind and/or irreverent now. This day will get better.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
