    Re: Ivy's post, I think the issue with BD and Randy began after this: BD was getting hassled a lot for her bizarre, long, pink-tinted, elephant-kicking posts, and a lot of people started putting her on ignore because things just got way out of control. But during all this time while she was getting ignored by more and more people, Randy kept engaging with her. Sometimes he'd poke fun at her, and other times he actually had conversations with her. I think she latched onto to him because he was THE ONLY ONE LEFT who paid any attention to her, and he whipped her up into a frenzy not knowing how obsessive she'd get over him.

    I was a previous board whipping boy, so I never ignored BD or worried too much about her because I didn't necessarily want to be a part of another board massacre, although I did see her obsession as unhealthy (as my own obsession with the board has been for me at times). As I've said, SHE HAS GOTTEN A LOT BETTER, except for the Randy thing, so that's good.

    I have always been curious as to how anyone can manage to have over 2000 posts on here. That is unless you have been on here for over 3 years. I've been posting with what I thought to be some regularity since 06 and haven't even cracked 500.

    Then I figured out what I hope to be the correct answer, please tell me all you 1000+ posters have office jobs that allow you to fuck off on the interwebz all day. That is the only plausible, respectable answer.

    Not at all meant to disrespect anyone, but 5000+ posts.....Goddamn!

    the day job I started a few months ago has me at a computer, so yeah. I'd say that 75% of my posts are the last 8 months or so

    Being non-confrontational doesn't stop other people from being confrontational.

    I've spent a significant amount of time on the board over the last year. It's amazing how much time can be consumed on this board when you actually start communicating with people and voicing your opinion.

    I've been doing paid work at my present employer for 6,766 days. I only post in between processes throughout the day, would never bring my work ethic into question.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    I've read every single post in this thread, and I'm still mystified why BD receives the shit that she does. From the posts here, she's so despised because:

    1. Her posts are long
    2. She wants to be liked
    3. She posted a picture of her vag (I think I remember her saying it wasn't hers anyway).

    I truly don't get it.

    In the same way that people shouldn't care about being liked by anonymous internet users, people also shouldn't propagate random hate and disdain for someone they'll likely never meet (except Tom...that fucker knows everyone). Both are equally silly.

    I think that's it for most people with this many posts. I simply work jobs where i'm at my desk 90% of the day. The issue is i'm not supposed to be on the net at work. I got a memo in May saying my internet useage in December was ridiculous and I need to cut it out. I figured if they are 5 months or more behind in warning people then so be it. I never made any changes to my internet useage and have not recieved any more warnings. I work for a place that has several steps before a termination can occur so I figure the next formal warning I will cut back quite a bit, so enjoy me while you can.

    30 minutes later and I just recieved an awesome e-mail. One of the other employees sent a raving e-mail about how great I am at my job to my supervisor, manager and a few higher ups. She has called me "amazing" one of the "best" "exceeds expectations" "great attitude" "helpful" "expeditious"

    That's only the first paragraph. Sweet. Not bad for a slacker like myself.

    i think those emails and letters are BS in general BUT my management loves them so when someone helps me or goes out of their way for me, i send their bosses some kiss ass email saying how great they were .... i have also went into like fast food places, called for the manager, and told him how great his crew is .... takes me 2 minutes, and makes that persons day ... karma always comes back .... good work faxman .... x****

    It is encouraging to hear that the way people portray themselves on the board is actually, for the most part, different than how they are in person. Why people make the choice of portraying themselves in such a bullying and bantering demeanor is beyond my comprehension. I'm older than the average person here so perhaps my lack of time spent on messageboards/blogs/joke web sites/Grand Theft Auto compared to others would explain my disconnect and my initial coming off as oversensitive.

    I have had to defend myself on occasion; though way less than others. In the end, the thing that was being argued about was really a lot less than what I initially made things to be. People were being a smart ass and just fucking around. I was looking at way too seriously.

    Being myself has worked for me. There are board members who are not very interesting. Those people tend not to get replies from me in threads. Basically, I avoid them like the plague. I donít chase them around threads and try to ďup oneĒ them. There are way too many other people to converse who have relevant things to offer.

    There isnít a manual for how one should conduct themselves on this board but here are a few recommendations.

    Be yourself.

    Have fun.

    Do not post snatch pictures.

    Insult someone and expect it back in return.

    Take things with a grain of salt. People have a sharp tongue on this board.

    If thereís a conflict, try and work it out, if it doesnít work, simply write them off.

    Remember this board is about Coachella and love of music.

    This entire post is awesome, FB.

    Nice, I like the sending one back to their superiors idea. However, I don't believe in karma and I feel i'm a worthless employee who does nothing but abuse company time which leads to me being more of a detriment to the company than anything else. It's nice though and made me smile but ultimately chuckle because i'm worthless and do less than the minimum. Either way I printed it out and threw it my drawer to show a future potential employer during an interview or something.
