    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: FFF : Oh then no, not at all. I really did mean what Celles said - empathy for both and cutting them both some slack - and just used "free pass" since that was the term that had previously been used. I basically meant that I agree with Moose, they've both been through a lot and don't deserve to be jumped on for things that under normal circumstances would be jump-able.

    1.  I hate the word "free pass"  I'm more down with forgivable.   Some actions are, some aren't.

    2.  I really wish I could've said what I was thinking as simply as Celles.  It probably would've saved some confusion about the free-passes I had printed up and was handing out.  Someone seemed to think I might run out of them.

  • I'm sure Mery knows about WWII as well. Just as we all know about slavery. I really don't think there needs to be a discussion of which was worse, because that surely won't end well.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: FFF : Okie dokes! Well then, I apologise. I just found the use of free pass came across as being really sarcastic and unnecessary. But sorry, again, if that's not what you meant.

    No worries, I'd rather you say it and give me the chance to explain than have other people sitting there thinking I'm a giant bitch for something I never intended.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: FFF : please read what I'm saying Sucrets. I'm actually giving BOTH of them a free pass, not just one or the other, because of his illness.  I'm not throwing red flags or hating on Mr. Pumpkin for being late.  I'm also not hating on P2 for being upset about it because of the same external solution. You're assuming that I think Mark is awful for being late.  I don't.  But, the same reason it's understandable that he was late, it's understandable that P2 was angry - if irrationally so. When it comes to cancer there are no guarantees, there are no definite answers.  It had to suck to expect to see your husband for lunch, then have him not appear, making it one more thing she couldn't count on.  One more indefinite where a couple of years ago, everything was more definite and predictable.

    Okay, but I don't understand why some pity cards are allowed to be played here and some aren't.

    Most of us have been through something traumatic and haven't brought it to the boards.  And when they do, they get raked across the coals when they use it as an excuse.  I understand that she didn't, but other people are doing it for her.

    Do you think it was easy for me or my husband to watch my tiny preemie daughter be hooked up to a ton of machines with a feeding tube down her throat and an IV in her fragile arm?  How awful it makes me feel to know that my body was unable to support her growth to term?  How painful it was to leave her in the hospital every night?

    Many of us are dealing with shiit, but are a) not airing petty revenge on a public board and b) trying to work together with our spouses on things.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: FFF : Okay, I can see that.  But who is the SB?  The board hoppers (who seem, frankly, to make up the majority of the posts, imo)?  The original group who left with intention?   The new people on there?  All the "just admit it" type comments seem to be aimed at who you call the original people who left with intention.  But why do the actions and intent of those people = the snarky board? 
    Posted by ohwhynot[/QUOTE]

    Good point. 

    I really do want to drop it but it's so hard because when I see things said, I feel like I have to put in my two cents.  When people on SB complain about E and how much they hate it but then continue to post here, it's just mind boggling.  I need to just ignore it and trust me, I try.

    Well I definitely don't think you're a giant bitch; I actually quite enjoy you (this may or may not have more than a little something to do with the fact that you're the only person I've seen around these parts with a dress similar to mine...).

  • I fully comprehend the whole story.  I get why people left.  I could make guesses as to exactly who the people were that they left over.   It's not like those of us who want everyone to stfu are morons who don't "get it".  I just don't see the point in dragging it out and trying to make it all dramatic just because people are butthurt by it.  People are allowed to leave if the company is getting on their nerves.  They don't have to answer to anyone about it.

    Your point? Yes, I know I'm doing it wrong. When a conversation devolves into talking about Nazis, that person loses. Rules of the internet.

    Amoro, my point was that the lowest common denomenator was slavery. Not that weren't a lot of nuances and other things involved. That is all. I agree with Sarah#s, she's just way more eloquent.

    nobody is saying the south was full of a bunch of peace seeking angels. and a lot of what they did may have been wrong.

    but seriously. to compare the death of 13,000 prisoners of war to the systematic death of millions of innocent civilians is a little bit skewed.

    She posted about it in a Confessions thread. I don't see the big deal. There is not a single person on Earth who hasn't done something petty for no reason at some point. We're not all in perfect relationships where we never make mistakes. It was not that big of a deal. It's not like she used his toothbrush in the toilet. Damn!

    My mom and stepfather live about 3 blocks from a War of 1812 battle field and they're planning some huge events over the next few years. My stepfather will argue with you all day that the war was pretty much only between New York and Canada. Yet Maryland is getting a bunch of money for reinactments due to the whole Francis Scott Key thing and he's mad about it. <img src="http://cdn.cl9.vanillaforums.com/downloaded/ver1.0/content/scripts/tinymce/plugins/emotions/images/smiley-wink.gif" border="0" alt="Wink" title="Wink" />
