If they are not really succint travel related posts that fit into the other forums, then they tend to get moved to Off Topic, but it's not an insult in any way. I suppose a lot of your posts tend to be more... (how to put it)...digressive. Or you might feel they are philosophical maybe? So those posts tend to go into Off Topic as it's a more discursive, less regulated forum that the others.

disgressive, philosophical... Uhm, I would not respond to a thread that gives me the impression that the member just wanted to have a thread for the sake of having a thread. But I dont have to shit on the threads that I dont like. So what if some members dont have a life. They log in and write stupid threads, which are philosophical or disgressive to some, irrelevant to others, and annoying to everyone... No one is bored enough to read and respond to it, right?

The Off topic threads: "what made you smile today, World's saddest song, Oxymoron, and then you have my threads that some members choose to respond to. Or people talking about POP CORNS in threads about apple pies, just to kill the discussion. Thus, one new member stated, "Is this place a PLAYGROUND, and that we are all adults not kids". -snip- Why the need to justify, if people read that thread, they would see that I am as crazy as what some people said I am.

But its fine... no more "disgressive" or "philosophical" stuff... and other vague offenses... Anyway, I'm not gonna feel bad anymore... Its a forum, and I am just visiting. To members who express kindness and sense of humor, I am listening.

Moderator Comment: Personal messages are also private messages and meant to remain so. A member may choose to share the contents of a PM with another member privately, but such content (or even a description of said content) is not allowed to be posted in threads at any time for any reason. The fact that the PM was not sent to you means you are not at liberty to comment to it's content in an open forum. How you came to have this knowledge is strictly between the "new member" and you. In this case "personal" and "private" are one in the same.

Get a life dumbass! U keep boring us, nobody is interested in your stupid lifestories.

Thought it was time to remind Swept Away of my profound message I posted earlier

PARADOXICALLY, you are bored enough to be redundant about your contradictory statement.
A dumbass who does not have a life will not be able to write life stories or lifestories (however the spell it).
Your message is indeed profound and life altering, I will reflect on that, thanks... it was truly inspiring.

You are most welcome, always there to help en change your life
I see it already helped (post #72 is the proof);)

No idea what this is about... I won't quote anything from a PM... and why would I? I dont even get it, why some people have to announce to the public that he or she sent a PM to someone, its so Reality TV, and I am not a fan of that culture.

Hi Sweptaway,

You're misquoting me there. That comment from the Moderator is not from me. Just to clarify... :)

Thanks.

Swept Away, for some bizarre reason I can picture you as a bored, overweight 60 year old man dressed as a school girl.

Not sure - but it seems cabbages are.
