    I have noticed lately that everyone yes me included have been going off-topic about a lot of issues not pertaining to Synchronet BBS in any way shape or form. I apologize for myself though as for the others that's completely up to them.

    There are other sub-boards in Dove-Net for some specific topics, and for topics that don't fit into those sub-boards, there's the General sub-board.

    Why do you do that? (up-vote all your posts)

    It seems that everything I do on Dove-Net seems to be a constant
    challenge here for some reason.
    When I ran my BBS as a Sysop back in the olden days my users
    enjoyed the entertainment I had provided them. They were grateful
    that they had such a person in their lives. But now it seems like
    a nagging wife like my ex-girlfriend was at one time. I left her
    for that same reason. I am a conversationalist and a philosopher.
    I love to express the wonderful things that we are blessed with
    every day on the Earth. Dove-Net has been my home here since the
    last decade.

    Very nice. A nostalgic look back. Check.

    Now, would you try again to answer the question that I asked?
    It's right up there at the top of this post, in case you've
    forgotten what I was asking. Thanks!

    Home??? This is a computer. It's not your home. It's not anyone's "home" you need serious help and you're not going to find it here.

    easy up there, fella... have some empathy and put yourself in others' shoes... i know exactly what TM means... i've grown up with computers... they are much easier to deal with than trying to interact with other humans... they don't bitch, gripe or complain... as a programmer, i reset them and rewrite the code if they don't do as i want... some of us went to college and had life experiences that others have not ever had... dating, interacting with others every day, being able to talk to the opposite sex (or our own sex if that's what we were into)... then others of us didn't take that route... they found computers and stuck with them because there was no controversy or disagreements... some are very religious or spiritual while others are more scientific...

    you ran into a similar situation recently... sometimes life is a bitch and we tend to unload on others when we have simply had a bad day for some reason... try putting yourself in the shoes of others before passing judgement... we (TINW) do not always know what others are going through... sometimes, one wrong word can cause huge harm or anguish... sometimes alcohol or drugs can enhance these situations and eaily cause us to lose our control... being able to recognize that is a good thing... not being able to means we are too close to the problem and are unable to recognize that, take a step back, and switch gears... this is life and part of being human, man... empathy is a huge benefit... many today cannot, for some reason, empathize with others... they have a lot of learning that will come to them over time if they even last that long...

    what's that old saw? choose your battles... some are simply not worth the anguish...

    you might want to read my response to hustler and take a page from it... we all have bad days and good days... taking our bad days out on others is not the way to go... understanding what they are trying to say is a hard task at times but it takes time and perseverance to be part of a disjointed family like we have here as old-school BBS operators...

    I'm not going to quote everthing you said. Do you guys think you invented isolation? My ex-wife couldn't compete with my love for computers and my demand for being online. I stopped going to family functions and spending time with my kids. I still spend my entire days with my head buried in my keyboard. Now I do it alone. And to be honest. I prefer it that way. What I don't do is post multiple messages a day just to get attention. He's not even talking to the group. All he's post's are "Hey DM blah blah ". He's only interested in what DM has to say.

    I have my ways of blocking people but DM looks like he's hiding from me. He hangs out at menus instead of posting or reading messages like he used to before. Now he does it after I'm gone instead of while I'm here. You know
    it's really sad because I don't like to fight with people. I'm a lover
    not a fighter. But when someone steps on my toes, I have to defend myself somehow. Since no one supports me here, I'm all on my own and it's quite
    unfair when people gang up on you for no reason. But if that's the way you people want to play it, I'll just watch and let you guys converse instead. That's my two cents worth for the night. Ok yes I agree and I admit that I do write a lot of messages to DM, but he doesn't pick on me as often as all you guys do together as a group and I enjoy a lot of his replies to the messages that he decides to respond with a clear and concise statement which is well thought out. He doesn't jump to conclusions every time. I've known DM a
    long time now since the mid 2000's and I've come to trust him.

    I haven't seen them or is it they haven't seen me? in over 10 years. Kids will always side with their mom even when Mom is wrong. Mom was teaching them to Lie to me when they were very young. I can't and won't tolerate that. Either way my point is I'm a happier person spending all my time behind a keyboard. My PC won't lie to me. It's always there for me and makes no demands of me. I'll bet the rent I'm not the only one that feels this way ;-). Most of my friends and former Co-workers are the same way. I know one network admin that hates both light and people.

    dude, you are completely misinterpreting what you are seeing... he is simply idling on the BBS like many of us do... like is also done in IRC... hell, if you look at tony's system, there are times it says he's downloading QWK messages for 80someodd hours... he's not... in any case, this is normal in today's world... rather like being on AIM, ICQ, discord and other similar live chat systems...
