Thanks Jothar for the kind words(!) and thanks MOC, stop in anytime!
Thanks especially to Queen Bee for expressing my thoughts exactly and explaining why I didn’t thank the above posters sooner. Hi everyone!
P.S. DY- caught your post last night for the two seconds it was up. Thanks for agreeing, I sometimes wonder if I’m seeing things.January 3, 2012 9:32 pm at 9:32 pm #842239☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant

To MOC and all others following me: The end of the major issues I have been going through is finally nearing! I am so relieved I could cry. Please keep up the davening, I really appreciate it quite a lot. Wish I could hug you all or something to show my appreciation. Hey this is a virtual world so I can! *HUGE HUGS!* 😀 😀 🙂 😀 😀January 9, 2012 5:43 pm at 5:43 pm #842241MindOverChatterParticipant

It really is not because I was not mentioned that I say this, although it was my thought when I was once mentioned, but unless you are going to bring enough candy for the whole class, you really shouldn’t give to just a few.
Our reactions to posters is purely subjective. Who each of us “like” can be due to a variety or reasons such as they are like us, they stimulate us even though they are not like us.
But if someone rubs us wrong because they dont think like us, why should they not be held, in the final analysis, with the same high regard?
I would even argue that a poster you go back and forth with in disagreement, is also a poster who you value and should say hello to.
If I were to post those names that I am drawn to, and ones that I am realizing I am drawn to as of late, but left you out, am I offsetting my kindness by being impolite to those I didnt mention?
Have any of you ever thought the same? It’s small potatoes, of course, but it is a potato.
And, again, if I were to post my list, and you were not on it, is that not like offering dessert to only a few people at my dinner table?
