    You cracked me up. What's the deal with you posting things like that when I am supposed to be doing work? Trying to get me in trouble, are you?

    Yup.


    The wonderful thing about Tiggers
    Are Tiggers are wonderful things
    Their tops are made out of rubber
    Their bottoms are made out of springs
    They're bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy
    Fun, fun, fun, fun, FUN!
    But the most wonderful thing about Tiggers
    Is I'm the only one.
    Yes, I'm the only one

    Surrounded by people who love life, you love it too;
    surrounded by people who don't, you don't.

    Re: Flouncing

    I've taken breaks from this board several times, but didn't bother to mention it - what's the point? I just delete the website from my Favorites and don't visit for a couple of months. Usually by the time I come back, the prime people who are always to first to leap into arguments have settled down until the next drama-rich thread calls to them. I have never seen the point of arguing on the internet... and on that note, I think I'm taking a break! (It's not a flounce if I leave with a smile, right?)

    Re: Flouncing

    That's funny, I didn't know it had a name! I think I've only flounced once, but the forum mods (it wasn't this forum) deserved it. They needed to know why people were getting ****** and leaving; it wasn't the fault of any members.

    I usually just up and leave without saying anything, either to take a break or just leave for good. And this is my first post after being gone for a few weeks. LOL

    Re: Flouncing

    I think it's nice when some of the members just mention they are leaving, though. Even if it's only a break, especially if they are on frequently. Y'know, like if they're going on vacation or just taking a much needed break. If they're going to be gone for a length of time and we're used to seeing them around all the time it can be a bit worrisome if they suddenly vanish. Just my two cents.

    That's understandable, though. I think what they mean is the people who make a big show of leaving because of some emotional upset (often involving the forums or people on them), and not just those who are stating they'll be leaving for a while or are taking a rest, or whatever. That's fine.

    Re: Flouncing

    I regret to inform you all that my single adventure in flouncing was unceremoniously deleted today.

    Re: Flouncing

    I've got to admit, I'm pretty tired of the same ol' egos on this board. While there are many people here that I like and enjoy their posts, there are other people who seem to lie in wait for someone to scold, lecture, berate and bully. I fully agree with the positions taken by a lot of people in various argument threads, but what I don't understand is how people just don't get that trying to FORCE someone to your belief is never going to work. All they do is alienate people and drive them away, or make more hesitant posters afraid to say anything for fear of bringing the Forum Egos down upon themselves.

    As much as I enjoy Tailfeathers, I think I'm probably done. I don't usually get directly involved with the confrontations, but they still bother me. I don't know, maybe I'll be back eventually but to be honest, I'm really tired of a lot of the holier-than-thou attitudes here and I just don't need that in my life, even if it's just on a message board.

    So, I may or may not be back at a later date - I won't know 'til then. See ya and good luck with all your birdies and other furred, feathered, finned and scaled friends.

    NOOOOOooooo...



    Okay... I understand if you need to take a break, but... not all of us are Forum Egos. I know you're not saying we are, but... this site does conveniently have ignore buttons.
