I post a lot, but seriously never even think about the
"Post Count". I just like to blab away, I live alone and
well, don't have much of a life, except for spending a
couple hours in the morning and the evening HERE.
My girlfriend and i bought a house and moved to the suburbs a couple of years ago after living in Chicago our whole lives. Right around the same time i got promoted from wire monkey to head wire monkey so i got to spend more time at a desk and less time in an attic or crawlspace. And on top of that we started doing a bunch of out of town project where i would find myself sitting in a hotel room for weeks at a time. Thats when i stopped browsing and started posting here at RC.
39, I've got blasted for posting too much, on many occasions,
but I think that is ridiculous... I think a few guys
need more significant issues to bitch about.
People will complain about anything.. i get into with someone every other day with very little effort. I asked pantel why he needed someone else to help him get codes for his tv's beause im a dumb hillbilly and i was curious and the next thing you know im a hater, im making the site hostile and im slamming the guy. If anyone can point me to where i was hating or hostile or slamming the guy i would love to see it. I think im pretty self aware but you never know.
I've also noticed (not on RC so much) but on a lot of
other sites, people get very nasty and very petty.
When guys start out with the school yard bar room tough guy small penis name calling i usually just say yo momma. They get all mad and want to argue more even though all im trying to do is get them to look in the mirror and see how rediculous they are. I learned early on that the first guy to open his mouth is usually the first guy to run away scared when thier barking gets challenged.
I have an opinion, you have one, they have one and that will sometimes lead to an argument. Ok.. so we argue.. then what? Now that we find out someone voted for McCain we follow them around the forum arguing with them? Give me a break. Grow up. The grumpy little forum crybaby makes me smile.
I don't understand the dynamic(s) of that other than there
must be a lot of deep seated anger and frustration out
I have as much anger and frustration about things that make me angry and frustrated as anyone else :) But come on.. some of these guys are so uptight and grumpy.. i would love to see a blood pressure level meter next to our post count to see how many of these guys have one foot in the grave because of thier stress level. Once i suggested that a guy use CEDIA's find a member directory to look for work and some crank calls me a spammer. Whatever. My Post Reply button works as well as thiers and im guessing i have more time on my hands than they do :).
I've always enjoyed chatting away with guys here, and
the more active the better - jmo
Same here. But the political stuff has to end :). We won, the monster has left the whitehouse and its time to follow behind the new Socialist President and help him get rid of all the capitolists who want to spend trillions of tax dollars beating up the guy who made fun of the last Presidents Daddy (thats a bush iraq jab).
If you lay off the politics i will leave the Control4 guys alone.. Deal? :)
