    this is a process, do not get stuck on how you feel.

    for anyone still paying attention...
    this is the conclusion of a messy thought process i posted a long time ago,

    if there are still ppl paying attention to this forum,
    and want to discuss, look me up on facebook.

    Bump...this is deep.

    I'll tweak the premise a bit, though. I think we all feel, that we believe we think ...we know.

    Any questions?

    Everyone feels, everyone thinks, some know, some think they know and some don't know and don't care.

    I'll be in the lobby after the show to take your question...

    I'm tempted to check his page out.

    That's the spirit. This could go on forever.

    Just one question?

    Just one at a time, NOW is all we have. There is no TIME. There is AGING but not TIME only NOW.

    Do we ever really "question" don't we really "inquire". Most people aren't deep enough to understand what I mean by "inquire" but the great ones are never understood initially, yes? Te he...

    Now, it’s a party. Paddoboy is here.

    Going back to the topic, if you think you know, you don’t.

    If you think you know, you might. Or you might not. If you are Iceaura, you are wrong and angry. If you are Rainbow you might be right and you might be wrong but we'll never know because we can't read your word salad.

    If you are Tiassa you are wrong and humorless.

    If you are Megs then Michael isn't far behind.

    The OP hasn't been on here since 2016. Wow, that was me...and then, I came back.

    Everyone always comes back...eventually.

    The topic reminds me of a poem I wrote many years ago called 'the Eternal Battle of the Wits'.

    Quarter wits view things from one perspective alone
    while half wits see things in two color monochrome.

    Three quarter wits see things in a third way
    while few can see all four colors anyway.

    Some entirely witless unfortunates
    devoid of any original thoughtfulness
    champion judgements made through three quarter wits cautiousness.

    Witless advice from three quarter wits is unfit
    when it recommends promoting quarter wits, to wit.

    Soon all the half wits appear very blue
    only one shade of color when previously there were two.

    Have you ever been to a Poetry Slam? This would work well there.

    my ocd wants to like this comment but my paranoid delusions doesn't trust me knowing you know i liked it

    do people still use facebutt ?

    technically the post is advertising a different site which is probably a breach of the site rules.
    squirrel should have posted the full comment instead of just throwing a link up and inviting people to the facebutt mega church

    Mayhaps, but—

    1) For other reasons, we weren't generally enforcing the nearest rule about bait posting; those reasons are generally unknown, because after the part where we decide to observe both the deliberate practice among people who ought to know better, and the crowd's rush to respond, it eventually causes more trouble dealing with people's complaints that we aren't making it easy enough for extraordinarily lazy, or the poorly-intended. Even still, the topic post meets the basic requirements that we would need a more established pattern of apparent impropriety before staking this behavior.

    2) That happens to be the member's departure post.

    3) Nobody really paid attention to it until the self-serving necromancy.​

    —sometimes the best thing to do is wait and see what happens next.

    We got a poem out of it, at least. That ought to count for something.

    Welcome home.

    The old account is still open; how would you like us to reconcile the two?

    And if there's something on your FB page you want people to see, go ahead and post the link directly; you might have noticed, and not just at Sciforums, that plenty have soured on that site, baiting people to randomly clicking around in search of baubles that depend entirely on the eye of the beholder isn't the best of etiquette, to say the least.

    lol Seriously?

    The OP isn't me...I was implying that I once was like the OP, meaning that I left the site for a while but then came back. I'd like to think most people knew what I meant. lol

    You have the right to remain silent...
    Wegs should be suspended until the matter is sorted.

    lol ^

    That's such an odd leap to make from my comment...but, maybe I shouldn't be surprised. *shrug*

    I've bumped a few older threads recently, since they seem interesting or fun. Is there a rule against bumping old threads? That can be the case on some forums.

    Thank you for the update.

    I sometimes joke that I wish other people knew what they meant, and on those occasions, I need that line because otherwise this, that, or the other.

    More to our moment, though, ambiguity is a way of things, around here, and, well—

    —reading what other cues we have—i.e., bumping this thread to tweak the premise—sure, thanks for the update.

    Meanwhile, the question of thread necromancy is its own in any given circumstance.
