Just Ignore and let this one die

Yes I prefer to email because it lets me compose my thoughts. I've actually had to make myself physically say what I'm doing when on the phone with some people because I got tired of "um, hello? are you still there?" when I go silent for more than a second.

The ability to be quiet while composing your thoughts, rather than saying "um", "uh", "like", etc makes me swoon. Rhonda's one lucky gal.

I prefer to just let the phone go to voice mail - have always hated phones anyway.  If it is important enough, they'll send an IM or an email.

I rotate voice mail greetings once a month or three. My current one is "Hi, I'm Maddy's personal assistant. If your call is unimportant, leave a message. If it is important, why on Earth did you call Maddy?"

Email lets me say "you are a f**king idiot" and then remove the line before I actually send it.  And it provides a nice record to go back to when mine or others memory starts fading.

I do that too, but I also use the animals in my yard as recipients for the verbal abuse I'd like to shovel on the asshats I speak to by phone. Surely one of my neighbors has heard me running through the woods, cursing at the fleeing squirrels for their unbelievably incompetent customer service.

Isn't it ironic that the nicest person *I* know on the forums was the last to post in that thread?

..., not knowing which thread "that" one is, scrambles to post in every one of them.

/me simply races off to find out what happened after I last looked a few hours ago

Either "Thank you very much"   :$

or someone's stuff got deleted - I actually had 2 posts at the end of the thread and now one is gone.

If only there was some flouncing or grand flourishing of words, alas, they merely closed the door.

Though they did also remove a LOT of posts.  That thing went from 18 pages down to 14 pages plus the one post on page 15.

Ah I didn't notice that and I've actually had to work today so I've only been checking the forums sporadically. I miss all the good stuff, sometimes it's on purpose.

Let's put it this way: never before have I seen forum software censor the f-word but not the c-word.... O.o

(Yes, of course I mean fish and chips :P)

Well then, I'm glad I missed that particular post.  I missed many in that thread. Every time I came back to it, it grew by a page or two, and too much of it was repitition (or off topic w/ stuff I wasn't interested in).  I started skimming through it, mostly only reading posts by specific people that I enjoy reading.

I'm assuming then that the missed censoring had to do with your post saying you had reported it.  I was wondering what made you say that, but decided there was so much wrong with the thread, that I didn't want to go looking for the latest horrid comment.

That specific post was the one I eventually reported, although that wasn't the only thing I mentioned in the report. I'm no prude (hell, anyone who reads my blog knows I swear like the proverbial trooper) but I was gobsmacked at how long that post was up, not to mention how that word escaped the forum's censor.

I was shocked by how some comments managed to last at all in that thread - and even by how long the thread itself was allowed to go.  I'm guessing the normal mods were on vacation/holiday or busy with other stuff this week/weekend.  I just cannot imagine the normal mods letting that go on like that.

Yep, not to mention all of the forum PMs and inworld IMs that were being sent to people. I muted the OP both here and inworld as soon as they started turning vicious, because I remembered from an earlier thread that they have a history of doing that.
