Indeed I know all about ebb & flow,
and my pointing out this being the "ebb" part of the cycle doesn't mean I think it permanent,
just sad to see it take place.
As I mentioned earlier, this doesn't merit a legitimate response.
Some people aren't capable of taking things seriously, for whatever reason,
so I don't understand why people continue to bother trying when they see that in someone.
If we could see the people we are talking to, much of this would be avoided.
There are people I meet at a gathering who I know right off the bat, that I am not going to be comfortable associating with (for various reasons that I won't go into here), so for the rest of the gathering,
I do not talk to them much or hang around with them. Most others don't either for similar reasons, while some do! It is all a part of the dynamics of relating that the internet forum restricts by its very nature.
I understand how frustrating this is and aggravating too, but giving more attention to this and continuing to play this game is no way to stop it! Turn your attention elsewhere and let this drop. It is about getting attention, and the more you give it the more it thrives.
Why do you need a moderator to stop what you already can?
Just my 2 cents again on where this has finally come.
Have fun kids!
And Tamlin, Nice to see you! I see you brought logic to this subject again (right before I was gonna post!), but I think it won't be understood by many, or at least by those who need it! I don't know why it is so hard to understand, but I think some people don't care. Indeed this appears to be a problem with some people, and it seems we will need to really trust who we buy/trade with.
