I do not believe we can ever "extract" ourselves from the negativity that surrounds us everywhere (including this thread), but we can rise above it and not participate or propigate. A fire left without adding fuel or oxygen will smoulder and go out on it's own.

Hi Ancient Wolf, the chilly rainy day turned into a sunny day with a slight chill in the air. Lots of BIRDS out chirping like it is Spring. I met friends and one sister at local sports bar all dressed in BLUE to watch the Wildcats try and redeem themselve. Good food, laughs, and cheers for the Big Blue. It was a better game, but they have lots to work on. I bet it will be by March. It was after all the number 1 recruiting team in the country. They didn't do too bad in their losses considering they are mostly freshman. I have always bled BLUE, win or lose, ranked or not, lousy coach or Coach Cal. lol Had to leave early so I could come home, get a few things done, and get ready for my special night out I have looked forward to all week. Having a glass of tea, relaxing, then off to get ready and enjoy a wonderful evening.

I hate to see raven leave the thread like so many others, but can't say I blame any of them. It was a good thread and now it is dying a slow death, no doubt. It was good while it lasted. I won't be participating in the mud slinging anymore. Sorry I stooped down to their level.

Hope you have a wonderful evening.

I don't agree that the thread is dying or that it was always good LOL If you recall I argued with the Anagrammer early on until we both decided it was not worth the effort since neither of us was going to change our opinions. LOL

The thread is dynamic and changing and we can either adapt, ignore, or move on. I have gleaned enough good and choose to ignore the mud slinging as much as possible or skip by those things that don't interest me.

Just so happens that lately I have been thinking about cutting some of the negative out of my own life. I hate it and I don't understand how it can make some people so happy just being mean and negative to other people for no reason whatsoever. I don't get it and I never will. I look around and I see this country/world going down so fast! Sometimes I wonder just how bad it can get. I don't get how people can be so nasty to other people and obviously hurt them with total disregard. I have seen this even under tragic circumstances such as when a family loses a loved one. Even then people will say and do the cruelest things to people whose hearts are already completely broken. It does not matter if you know the person or not or even if you do know them and literally hated them, how people are so cruel is beyond me. They have no conscience and no heart. Personally I don't even want to know those kind of people. Of course we all have a bad day. Of course there are people that we just CAN NOT get along with. Of course some days we are just grouchy, hormonal or whatever. Still, it's no excuse to be cruel to people. People who consider them selves to be a Christian and behave like that, if their conscience does not bother them they might ought to question their salvation. Because if a Christian treats somebody badly, the Holy Spirit will no doubt cause your conscience to get to you in a bad way!

I'm just tired of the negative not only on this thread but everywhere.

AB I don't want to choose sides or join the fight but it really looks pretty obvious to me that if you would just TOTALLY ignore those people they would have to get bored and give up.

That's almost word for word what I said on here many months ago. I advised people NOT to reply, NOT to acknowledged the vulgar comments that are offensive, and to just let the hogwash rotate in the orbit of the internet until a mod wandered over to take a look around from time to time...

I know of at least three times where it was obvious that the mods came in this thread to stealthily clean things up on a daily basis. They kept it clear for a few weeks or more on every occasion... Then they abruptly stopped. Now the way I see it with using common logic, they probably realized that it was a waste of their time because of the taunting that was dished out toward the very people who were being labeled as the abusive ones. Why keep trying to keep it cordial in here once the people doing the complaining were the ones who then started to taunt the ones who'd had their content taken down?

You can't feasibly expect the mods to continue babysitting a thread when the same people who are requesting their help continue the taunting toward the users who they want to see reprimanded and/or banned.

It's not hard to police your fingers and keep yourself from replying to anything vulgar on here. If you can't help yourself, then use your fingers for placing feedback so they know that there is a comment that needs their attention.
Debate is one thing. Taunting is quite another, and quite childish as well.

I don't intend to be rude to a single one of you on here, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart. I just calls 'em like I see 'em. If we want to see this thread come back to life and get back on track, then we have to be the ones to keep it alive and on track. Maybe once that's accomplished, the regulars will come back and we can carry on with a thread that was so enjoyable at one time.

_-_Nope_-_

I've seen 3 Tornados in hit Arizona in 2 weeks. This was in the dead of winter. The temp was only 28 to 36 when they hit.
Being the weather buff that I am, when I read a post like yours I immediately start researching. Please direct me to news stories about these tornadoes you reference.

A tornado touching down anywhere with those temps is practically unheard of, let alone three.

As usual, you are full of wisdom. Negativity begets more negativity. Sometimes I am guilty of adding a few coals to the fire, but I rarely do so. Having a positive attitude has helped me on many occasions. I'll bet dog does not want to visit the tree too often in this cold, damp weather. Stein likes curling up on the bed, with his head on a pillow. We share an afternoon nap as we get older.

Sometimes we have to go though a time of darkness before we arrive at the light. Be patient, I think the light is near.

We have only agreed to quit arguing and to be more cordial. I still don't agree with some of your opinions nor do you agree with mine. LOL But if we all held the same opinions, life would be most boring.
