Something Sad and Something Silly

I have been posting for several years on a forum that taught me a lot about..well, all kinds of things. I have managed to overlook a lot of the meanness that goes on, and the fact that most of the women there are EXTREMELY left-wing liberals, because there are a LOT of people there and you can usually find out anything about anything. Plus, there were enough normal people to be able to ignore the Rosie O'Donnell wannabes.

Well, the wannabes have become so outspoken and rude that they shout down ANY post that suggests that spanking is okay, global warming just might be a crock, or describe someone's race when trying to describe what they look like is NOT racist, etc...

I have pulled the plug. I can't stand to read the spew any longer, so I'm deleting the site from my bookmarks and finding somewhere else to play. I'm not doing a dramatic good-by-you-are-all-mean-and-don't-know-what-you-are-talking-about-and-your-kids-are-ugly post. I'm just going to disappear. The friends I have made there know where to find me, and no one else cares if I'm there or not. It still makes me sad though. I have spent a lot of time there, and I miss it.

HOWEVER, in my state of wandering because it's computer time and I can't go to my message board any more, I ran across this, and it made me laugh out loud:

Animator vs. Animation

Don't worry, it won't freak your kids out or anything. Someone has more time on their hands than I do, that's for sure!

I quit a message board for the same reason. For a long time I was there because I thought I might make some kind of impact. Then it got really draining, and I realized that there were other Christians there doing a better job of representing Christ than I was, and I wasting time there instead of engaging the real live people around me. So I quit and never looked back. It was an active board of really smart women, so it's too bad that it was such a hostile place. But that's how it goes, I guess.
