We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
"Like an old door, every man past a certain age comes with historical warps and creaks of one kind or another, and a woman who wishes to put him to serious further use must expect to do a certain amount of sanding and planing."
You provided Mr Merc as introducer and trainer for more usage of things such as bold, italics etc....do you want us to use them ? If not why were we provided his expertise in the fist place, including a "cheat sheet " for immediate accesss at the end of each thread?
Which way do you want it done? It's getting a bit had to understand the MF Mission Statement, the training that gets used and yanked, and just what the guideline are?
Luther, Let me clue you. You've been giving me direct advice on how I should comport myself. I don't need it from you Luther. Now that ,in and of itself, more than likely won't prevent you from attempting to be the arbiter of my behavior. But do be a good lad and go shepherd someone else.
No apology required Habu. I was too clever by half.
I agree that the change appears to be somewhat capricious in nature. Apparently it is felt that the peasants cannot be trusted with the posting of images. And yes, an announcement would have been nice.
I checked earlier images that had been posted. They were all turned off as well. So apparently it is site wide.
At age 58 there is no way in heaven or hell that I am going to allow some damn broad to come around thinking she is qualified to sand or plane me. I spent my eligible years being told I wasn't rough enough, didn't make enough money (am an artist), and too intelligent; do you think I am going to allow a sex that idiotic to "change" me? Mr. O'Neill is p' whipped and I have found such men as artists are of a lesser grade.
