Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

I posted on that 'Troll, Porcupine, whatever' thread last night, and came here this morning and IT IS GONE!

I guess SOMEBODY got mad, or can't take constructive critisism.

Or is it just that I am really a thread killer? HUH? I can take it, y'all just let me know. LOL

RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

It was there this morning at about 6:30.


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

Janie, I saw your post also, early this morning, but now the whole thread is gone!
Jim


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

Awwwww what'd ya say? lol Now I have to go through cyber eternity wondering what you said.

I was enjoying that conversation. Seemed like small pay back for all the mean spirited posts on discussion board lately.

Guess we have to chalk one up for the trolls.


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

"dil*o."

ROFL.....Carol, I think they call that a Freudian slip....LOL. I had not looked at that thread thinking it was about garden decor....now I wished I had. But of course, I probably would have been taking a swig of Diet Coke when I saw you call them a dil*o and would have had to send my laptop to the shop to have it cleaned out after the spew!

Janie, I don't know what you said, but trust me it's better that it's just gone than to have them come back and blast you. Speaking from experience here. It doesn't matter how nice you are in trying to get your point across, some people just will take it the wrong way. Keep your chin up and don't sweat the small stuff :).

RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

I am sorry I missed it also, Janie, but I am sure I would have agreed with you. I would really like to know why it would be removed, while other posts are still there!!


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

LOL. Always miss the fun stuff.


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

Maybe we should analyze this.

....hummm

Confucius say:

One who yank must make sure he yank the right thing.


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

Carolann, what is it, or who is it that you want to yank?

I think de-eldo got mad and asked to have the thread removed. Just a thought.....could be wrong.....but prolly not.

It gets away with what it does because we don't complain. Perhaps if we did complain when it was a peevish creep, it would go away.

Don't you imagine?

LOL

 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

Where is Ms Jolana? Was she yanked to disney world with that thread?


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

The original "Amber Alert" thread is still there.

Here is a link that might be useful: amber alert


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

Janie, when I hear you call it "it", you remind me of the movie "Silence of the Lambs".

"It puts the lotion in the pail". LOL


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

Jolana was calling it 'It' yesterday. That is why.

I tried not to see 'Silence of the Lambs'.

I am a skeerdie cat!

Janie


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

I know, I saw where she called him an it.
She's such a Goober! LOL

Jolana, where are you?


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

That thread is gone now too, guess im next.


I'm meeelllllllting


 o
Susan keep dry!!

Alright, who threw water on Susan!!!!


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

HMMMM, maybe it is the yanker.


 o
The yanker

...and the plot thickens.

Jolana is MIA, Susan is melting and Janie is skeered.

Kathy, I think you're right.

drums...drums...drums...

And the yanker strikes again!!!


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

Carol Ann, Jolana was calling it an "it" because it has never been established as to whether it is male or female --- okay? Jolana had to make a run over to Austin today, she will be back soon.


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

I think I saw a thread where it indicated that eldo is a woman. Might have been on another forum though. I do remember being pretty surprised though.

Kristi


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

I think when they pulled Jolana's thread, they completely unraveled her. Poor Jolana!
Jim


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

My earlier reply in here vanished! Was it ghosts or did I forget to hit the submit button again? Strange and mysterious things are happening here....
Carol, I don't know what kind of philosophy book you're readin! I never no learned nuthin like that!
Eldo it an "it" because "it" likes to play mind games and not tell "it's" sex. We know IT is a d*ld* tho. Maybe that will help. LOL!PJ


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

I have been gone for 5 days. I won't be back for 9 more days, maybe. D'ya suppose that you all could keep yourselves from being thrown off the forum til I get back?

I don't know what this thread is all about, but sounds like the african goat-woman has attracted more unusual types like herself.


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

Whooo Hoooo, 9 days? Think of the mischief we can get into!

Kristi


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

Terry, I don't know about the rest of them but I'm the good one.

Kristi is trying to get me to misbehave. Bad Kristi!!!

Have a safe trip and let us know when you get back so we can straighten up by then.


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

I totally missed the original and now that's gone too. Oh well. Why are the women on here so nice and the men so awful? It's truly a mystery. Take JD, for example. Please.

HAHAHAHA! Sorry, JD, I had to kidya. Don't worry, you're one of the girls.


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

I think I remember eldo telling us she was a she. She seemed surprised that we would think otherwise.

I will try to look that up. Unless that thread was yanked.

Janie, who is really good, and not into mischief. Y'all just wait 'til Jolana gets back. Y'all are gonna be in truuub-bulll!

The Eldo person posted an unpopular opinon and I thought that all the others who disagreed, disagreed quite nicely. I didn't post to it because everyone said what I would have said already.
Why was it pulled/yanked? (that almost sounds nasty doesn't it)


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

"Why are the women on here so nice and the men so awful?"

Awwww.....now my feelin's are hurt. (sniff)


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

Rick, don't feel bad.

You're just one of the girls.

Besides that....eldo may turn out to be a girl!!!


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

Nah. Eldo isn't something a gal would dream up. Or at least not one over the age of 16. (grin)


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

A complaint was made I'm sure. Did anyone else receive a "friendly reminder" from Gardenweb to get along? I also got a threatening e-mail from that person & blocked them. So I guess now their only choice is to complain, complain, complain.
Tally HO!


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

You got a friendly reminder? Bad girl, bad girl, whats you gonna do when the cops come round.


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

Okay, what the heck is going on ?
It went from talking about mean nasty online people to pulling and yanking trolls and porcupines, lol
sick, sick, sick, lol
Tally, someone must have been been specific

Rick, most of the guys are very nice and there are some women that aren't, lol

Janie, you are not a thread killer, it is
I want to know what took the cake, lol
email me and tell me, okay?


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

Well, while you all sort it out, I gotta go make some jewelry....or at least butcher up some sterling silver. Check back tomorrow.


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

OK, stop everything. RICK MAKES JEWELRY AND HE DIDN'T tell us!!

I liked the troll link, that was pretty cool! Post it again, I didn't bookmark it.
Tally HO!


 o
gone

Amber thread is now gone. I went to go back and see what I said, except for useless. I don't think I wrote anything really bad. They are just po cause I blocked them and they can't send me nasty e-mails any more. Tally HO!


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

Eldo is a woman.

And she has been reasonable on a number of posts.

What is going on over there?

Still in NC


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

Tally, you got a "friendly reminder", now I'm wondering what you said.


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

I'm wondering what I said too! And if this person is a woman.... Remember she said something about someone showing off for "the girls"? Thanks txgardenlady for the information, know any other scoop? Menopause? I've found the premarin really makes a difference!! LOL!

Heck, if I got a "friendly reminder" whenever I said something to upset someone I wouldn't get any other e-mail, or snail mail for that matter. I'm not exactly known for my, uh, tact, yeah, that's it, tact!
Tally Ho!


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

Well, there was a post where they were upset that someone had assumed they were a man but then said they were.
Then there was a post where it was telling Helptxgal that it was a widow. Who knows or cares. Mean is Mean

Tx Gardenlady, you are right, there have been multiple posts that are helpful, but many where they are just hateful
Did you read the Amber Alert thread?


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

Y'ALL BEHAVE AND NO MORE YANKING AROUND!!!
Did that sound authoritative enough??? With everyone in charge gone I am now QUEEN Muhahahhahaa ha ha ha....
Well, maybe not.
We wanna see pics of Rick's jewelry don't we?
Funny, I'm the first one to take a jab at Eldo and no one reminded me to be nice. I think the word is incorrigible! They didn't bother!
So...tell me whatcha say Beach? A tact is only good for hanging stuff on the walls. LOL! PJ


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

Rick, I listen to you, it wasn't that long ago you told us you were learing to make it.
Now, show us pics, lol

PJ, lol, Queen of what???LOL


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

Hey.....the only piece that is completely finished, is a ring my wife is already wearing. Everything else is still in work (well, except the first copper pendant, but that doesn't count.)

Good thing most jewelry is mass produced. You could never afford it, based on how much work goes into making it by hand. (smile)

Some pieces have already been gifted or donated to fund raisers, that didn't involve silver smithing. So....can't photograph those.

Best piece so far, was earrings in vermeil, amethyst, and created opal, as a xmas gift to my niece. She liked 'em. Picky though......she had to have lever back ear wires.


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

PJ, you're living up to your name "baby brat". Doesn't it always seem like the baby gets by with murder. LOL

Rick, what a good idea for gifts. It's always good to have hobbies.

You need to start taking pictures.


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

Rick, your niece is a smart girl:
lever backs are the best insurance against losing earrings.

& I have a whole ice tray full of "one" earrings, the remaining halves of pairs, to testify to this...


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

I take pictures every bloomin' day. No desire to take any I don't gotta take.

I figure the lever backs are due to the 2 yr old. (smile) On the other hand, you wonder how she keeps from getting her ears mangled, anyway.


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

My sister-in-law is the Queen of Galveston, Nancy is the Queen of everything-everything is her fault, and I'm just the Queen! PJ can be Queen of running. Rick is an honorary Queen.

One Mardi Gras Nancy, Mary & I were on one end of the living room, on the other end were 2 gay friends of ours. We ladies always call ourselves "the Queens". A friend of ours was sitting in the middle of us all. The gay guys didn't know about the Queen thing. Friend in middle says "I'm surrounded by all these Queens!". One end of the room burst out laughing and the other end was very perplexed!

Welcome to the Queen club PJ!!
Tally HO!


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

"One end of the room burst out laughing and the other end was very perplexed!"

LOL, I love it Tally :). I have had a lot of gay friends. And I love them all. The guys are great cause they can always relate to "man problems". The girls are great cause you can go on vacation with them and hubby doesn't worry that anyone is out man hunting :). Two of my best friends right now are a lesbian couple. I look at it like religion and politics....I am fine with whatever you want to do, but I have my own preferences :).

"Rick is an honorary Queen"

Rick, time to start working on your TIARA!!

Kristi


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

Oh thank you,thank you Beach!Where's the roses? I'm a QUEEN here! Oh wait... glass slippers? No that was Cinderella. A crow? No that was an evil queen and I'm not that motivated. Queen of running should have diamond studded running shoes! Yep! It'll distract the other runners and I will be the fastest in all the land! Yeah! PJ


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

Duh!! Thanks, but I abdicate that throne, right now. The entire concept of royalty is against my nature.

Too much of a "they put their pants on the same way I do" kinda guy.

Besides, most royalty got that way, by the use of force, at some point in time. Which makes them conquerors, and not royalty, anyhoo.


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

Dang, I always miss the good stuff! Is eldo gone? I haven't seen any tirades lately ;-)

Pam


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

Don't worry Pam! Eldo'll be back. Apparently, "it" likes to go to different forums and stir up trouble. It's like a totally useless hobby or something. Sooner or later "it" will get bored harrassing the other GWers and come back 'round.PJ


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

Possibly posting as a growginger or some such. PJ can stir up trouble can't she? And we KNOW what trouble Janie is..look at this thread!
Tally HO!


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

Whaaaa? Who me? Never! LOL!PJ


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

Check out the post on "my new name". I bet Janie comes up as Rose Threadkiller!
She is a protector of the missing thread.
She lives in spiderwebs and tangled undergrowth.
She is only seen in the early dawn while dew in on the spiderwebs.
She wears red and gold. She has flaming red wings.
Maybe I can get a job writing fairy names.
Tally HO!


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

yep, that is me, Rose Threadkiller.

I have flaming red wings WITH gold edges, BUT.....I have got so fat I can't fly anymore. LOL

My tights are a wee bit uncomfortable, riding up then rolling down at the waistband like that.

All that dew in the early morn makes me wet, which makes me cold.....

and, I am skeered of spiders, and can't stand spiderwebs.

I am a lousy fairy. Heheehe.

Janie


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

LOl!PJ


 o
RE: Am I a thread killer, or WHAT?!

Talk to the fat fairies - maybe they can hook you up with some pixie dust and restore your flying powers!
