    Don't worry. I'm not getting into this thread - or any other.

    Last bit of what? I do disapprove of using the button for scorn. I posted that. It wasn't a dig. That's what this thread is about. Remember?

    I can assume it isn't laughing at humour, Belinda. I am perfectly capable of recognising humour, even when it doesn't make me even smile. And I am perfectly capable of recognising scornful laughter. You probably don't notice it, but I do..... ....... because it's one of my pet peeves ETA: Incidentally, I didn't say that the post you 'laughed' with or at was an example. I could conceive of a reason to laugh, but I asked you what it was, because I didn't think that it would be reason enough to warrant a laugh reaction. When I said that it's occured in this thread, it wasn't the post you laughed at/with that I was thinking of.

    That's true, and there are some posts where nothing at all is actually humorous, and yet the odd person (in more ways the one ) laughs - scornfully.

    You could be right about Whirly, but not about Belinda. She's posted the reason, which I have to say, I don't exactly understand.

    I have a pet peeve concerning this forum, and it's even cropped up in this thread lol. It's using the laugh reaction in a scornful way. It started with just one or two people doing it, but it's been spreading. ETA: I have another pet peeve concerning this forum. It's suspending people from SL itself for small infingements of forum guidelines/rules. Actually it's more than just a pet peeve - it's a bl..dy great chip on my shoulder.

    I don't think it's short for 'petty'. I think it's just a phrase that gets used to indicate something that always annoys us to some lesser extent. I.e. it's my peeve.

    @Whirly Fizzle and @BelindaN I'm curious to know what's so funny about Candice LittleBoots' post - the one near the bottom of page 1. It reads like there's a genuine design flaw, which I wouldn't have thought was particularly funny.

    Accidentally left my own group...

    What Fiona said about using an alt. In the meantime, open a support ticket, explain what happened, inluding that your partner/owner has been missing for 3 months and shows no signs of returning, and ask to be put back into the group as an owner. If you get back in, do the alt thing.
  11. That sound very much like the answer. In your place, I would assume that it's the same person and have nothing to do with him. If it's just coincidence, it wouldn't matter. But, if it's not coincidence, then the person has you in his sights and you need to get away from it, especially by starting and using a new account so that there's never any question in your mind about guys you meet.
  12. Women communicate in ALL mediums far more easily than men I'm reminded of a time when I sat in an armchair listening to my mother and another woman chatting. They smoothly moved from one thing to another, without even a hint of a break between subject matters. It flowed seamlessly for topic after topic after topic, and I sat there marvelling at the way they just did it. I couldn't do that then or now. So, imo, when compared to men, women are the masters of the chat type of communication in all mediums. Any other type of communications, such as communicating something that the communicator knows about, everyone is just as good as everyone else. Some people are better at putting things into words than others but that's nothing to do with gender. None of it has anything to do with men in SL being lonely though, as is suggested by the thread's title. I speak from experience when I say that I don't accept that men are lonely in SL, so the thread's title is wrong - imo.
  13. What has your experience in second life been like? Very profitable!
  14. I changed my mind. ETA: I'd written and posted a normal post here, but I changed my mind about posting it at all, so I deleted its contents.
  15. I actually thought that Callum's post about 100% of his FL being male was humour, given the subject of the thread, because he's openly gay, and therefore not a typical male. And it looked like Scylla was taking it as being representative of a typical male. It may not have been humour, but, for this discussion, it did need pointing out that he's not yer typical male. By 'typical', I mean that those in the huge majority are the 'typical' ones, and those in the very small minority are not.
