  • Ironic comments for those who have such issues with name calling.
  • If it gets all the way to libel, the tort courts can make you rich, but as to the rest -
  • [font size="1" color="#FF0000"]LAST EDITED ON 02-20-06 AT 01:49PM (CST)[/font][br][br]Not at all Ray, I desire the ability to have free and open discourse on this forum. Comparing forum conduct to a microcosm of society is a bit of a stretch in my …
  • "Marc, you're correct that achievement comes from challenge. No question. But that's not the issue here. The issue is disingenuousness and incivility. People with legitimate points and the critical thinking skills to support them have no need to res…
  • [font size="1" color="#FF0000"]LAST EDITED ON 02-19-06 AT 12:23PM (CST)[/font][br][br]It's sort of like changing the radio station on your dial - if you don't like what you are listening to, then just dial up soft rock. It's a bit like our politica…
  • My posting at #6 on this thread has more to do with companies looking for money from me or the company for which I work - more spam than the conversations I have had with others. It sounds like I have a green light to use the forum the way I always…
  • Is it OK to send information to subscribers who are asking what has happened to certain members and/or former members? How about responding to private messages from subscribers who are essentially asking the same thing? I have received a few PM's …
  • Thanks for the clarifications and feedback.
  • I have given me email out to a number of folks I met on this and other HR forums. We regularly engage in email conversations. One of the things about email addresses is that you don't know where the sender got yours. Since I began participating i…
  • Remember, he first came in as Steelboy. He changed to aluminum boy when he became kinder and gentler.
  • Perhaps you are being punished for not accepting the marketing emails? x}>
  • Has Ray seen this claim?

  • That sunshine thing or the N.O. button both sound great. I have shoveled 8 ft of snow in the last week and am in need of something different. Only supposed to get another 6 inches today. On the Silver Lining side of things - the Tahoe area ski …

  • I agree with Sonny's observation. The avalanche of requests for copies is quite impressive when a forum member volunteers a copy of a form. That puts the volunteer in an unusual position. It is very time consuming to fill all the requests - and s…
  • Once I logged out and logged back in, the print has been returned to normal size. Thanks Brian.
  • But those four posts were memorable doozies!x:D
  • I was just about to go into the Forum Addiction Recovery Program. Whew! I am glad I don't have to go cold turkey now.
  • I get it now. I am unusually thick today. It is pointless to ask at my shop, no funds available for this one.
  • I must have missed something. Asking what?
  • That probably means Margaret will have them all jumping tandem out of a perfectly good airplane - I would guess the group would be dressed in Elvis attire.
  • Good question. Maybe they are noodling up a way to give scholarships/grants for people who have over 1000 posts?
  • This was discussed several months ago. Sometimes when you post a reply, the program picks up the state of the last poster or the initiator of the thread (I don't remember which one), but when your own post is displayed later, the state is corrected…
  • A lot of us do care, but unfortunately we are not the decision makers at MLS. Our only vote comes when we write our checks for the subscriptions. I personally will keep my membership and watch what happens to the quality of the site, in particular…
  • A sad day coming. The forum will not be the same. x:-(
  • Mine are still clear when I have clicked the "MarK All" button and only show the blue color when there are new unread messages. Beyond relaying that it is not happening on my desktop, I cannot be of more help - not an area of great personal experti…

  • Thanks for the update James. Faster is better in these applications.
  • I read the policy, it is similar to a couple of paragraphs in our harassment policy. At the end of it, it mentions the Forum can take action if there are mutliple complaints about a particular member. I am not sure what that means, but I guess the…
  • Posting must mean something different in Cannon Beach than it does here in Nevada. I think I like your version better.

  • Look - up ahead, there's a signpost. You have just entered the twilight zone. Nothing has happened here (knocks on wood).
