Well, I probably took a shot at them first for going after kyle.


Edit: But I think it's hilarious that they bought a set after all of their whining.

I figured out who it is ... Alec Baldwin!

You do tend to jump on people, whether you consider them shills or zombies or whatever, and are willing to escalate. It's the internet, you can't win To be fair, not picking you out, I feel the same way about BD discussions, politics (Mark's argument with Jen on fb, holy cow, that was out of nowhere), etc. I just tune it out.

I appreciate the honestly. I am not afraid to say something, but perhaps I do so too often/too strongly. I know it's completely futile, but I just can't help myself! (Pointless self-defense warning!) This guy threatened to leave "for good" at least twice! How can I not say something. (End of pointless self-defense.)

Exactly! And then they end up buying the set! It has to be Alec Baldwin.


Edit: And funnier still was that they replied about their leaving to the wrong post of mine. The one they wanted was 2 or 3 posts down from that one. The one they responded to was a simple explanation of the pricing.

Yes. Seeing your hometown underwater and the pathway to one of your favorite hangouts obliterated, and knowing that that hangout was the hardest hit and is basically gone... kind of puts you on edge.

It's the memories, for me. The shoreline got changed. I can't share these things with my nephews, or HAK's nieces. Or my cousin's kid. We get to keep the memories, but we may never be able to share them with the next generation.

Buildings can be rebuilt, provided the land is still there to rebuild on. The image that haunts me the most is the one of the Mantoloking Bridge now being a bridge to nowhere. Giant swath of land, gone. That cannot be rebuilt. They'll have to tear it down and create new pathways onto the barrier islands.

The face of the Jersey Shore has changed.

I'd tend to agree with this. You bring up good points, but they do tend to be pretty direct and can be perceived as antagonistic. I'm all for pointing it out, ftr.

First of all, quite perspicacious of you considering the only medium on which we have interacted is the interwebs. And I'm not surprised by the reactions. I, however, don't want to turn people away from the fantastic community that I was able to become part of. Out of the other side of my mouth, though, I don't want people to come in and turn others away (today, the wine maker) from the fantastic community I was able to become part of.

I've now finished off a 2004 Meeker Kiss Ridge, and the Domenico 2001 Syrah. Both capped with Ar and held up very nicely, but only one glass each. It's Friday, I feel compelled to find something else to consume, but what...?

I did that twice, although they've been deleted. I had some hard apple cider tonight for the first time. Quite enjoyable.

I'm sure you'll remember there was a time, many years ago, when you and I used to go at it. Once I figured out that, basically, you're a lot like me when it comes to saying what's on your mind, and most of the time (including the most recent discourse) I tend to agree with you, the nasty bits completely went away. I don't think you've ever turned away anyone of substance. Now, get off the maybe list, and onto the attendees list for D&D, and we can finally meet in person. I'll bring a bottle of Ty's '05 Field Blend Red (still drinking nicely).

basically. I don't set out to antagonize people, but if they're stupid they should be told in hopes they cease being stupid. If I hung out in the main threads anymore I'd constantly be in trouble. But since I dont' hardly buy anything with the spectre of daycare haunting me, I just stay away.
