Well! As one of my visitors here noted, perhaps it IS a good thing I left Mitford!
No, seriously, I will say that many of the ladies (and there were a few gentlemen there also) were fine folk, and I enjoyed conversing with them. I hope they will realize that even when I describes some as hens, I wasn't saying they were ALL hens.
And BTW, I do want to say that I'm not criticizing all the ladies who were in favor of moving the political threads to another location. As ever, they're entitled to their opinions, and most were willing to try that, and wanted to support the moderator.
What bothered me most were the ones who insisted that the political threads dominated and out-numbered the other threads. Or those who complained about them heatedly, but continued to view and post on those political threads. I found that disingenuous.
You know what's funny about anonymous posts? You get to see what people will say, when they don't want anybody to know they're saying it! Ha! I thought about removing the nasty comments people have left here, but I think I will leave them, because they truly prove my point. They don't bother me, but they sure give us something to laugh about in our living room.
I think I'll ride my broom to WalMart tonight, whadya think? Oops - no, I wouldn't have room for the groceries, and I can't really balance 4 gallons of milk on back of my broom....
It's sad, really, that those members are so attached to that site that they are vicious toward anyone who even decides to leave. I don't think I want to become that attached to a website.
Gotta dash. Enjoy reading those zippy anonymous messages!
