I have frequented this board forever (since 2001), but I am the worst at message boards.

No one has any idea what i am talking about half the time. Or somehow I did not think my comment through and it was close to what I meant, but not exactly what I meant. This has lead to some people kind of annoyed with me because I picked on them or whatever.

For example I replied and quoted Lazy Lightning. I told her to listen to music instead of watching it, but what I really was trying to is quote the artist who said that about her own music, but my post made it a pointed statement that she did not know how to listen to music. I can come across as quite a jerk sometimes, and if I did sorry... Because I am the WORST.

Additional Reasons why I am so bad at message boards.

My grammar is awful. (not my math though which is no use here).

My replys are not funny.

I only read threads interesting to me.

I fart a lot when reading your threads.

Post stupid or horrible news stories. (although I have not done this as much).

I like Phish better than the Grateful Dead.

Please feel free to add other reasons why I am an epic failure at message boards.

This is wrong on it's face, and is grounds for your banishment.

All of the other stuff is subjective and/or viewable in a number of different lights, and, therefore, doesn't matter.

it's hard to communicate in writing... tone is something that's very difficult to both write and read... I personally find that if I just post without reading through what I wrote a couple times that I end up feeling "posters remorse" and going back and editing things often several times. Even so, I think that no matter how hard someone tries to avoid them, inevitably there will be some misunderstandings. That's my view of it, and as long as those misunderstandings are eventually rectified it usually doesn't do any harm.

I'm a fuckin hot mess, and most I say that may come off one way, is buried in self deprecating sarcasm for the most part.

you were able to take my dry humor for what it is and not get offended (which no offense was meant)

grammar does not matter between friends unless you have no other life than to sit around finding such things (sorry spell check)

i also like phish better

Sometimes I have no idea what threads are about or sometmes a thread goes off in another direction and I feel lost because I do not want to read the whole thread to get "in" on the joke.

I still dont know some of the PT message board-isms Halfstar makes/made regular use of. We should have a forum that is a dictionary for PT-isms.

My grammar has been made fun of for quite sometime on this board. I think someone once said that "making fun of my grammar is like taking candy from a baby" or something like that.

I also enjoyed your "devils advocate" commentary as well as your pop shots at my grammar.

I don't take much of what I read on the interwebs seriously. I take it in, process it, and poop it out.

don't stress so much, it's the freakin' Vibes boards, not the LSATs or something. you're doing fine.

people are always making inside jokes around here..... which to me has always been a turn off. rubs me the wrong way. like trying TOO hard to be cool or something.

....not that i have anything against inside jokes, they can be a lot of fun.... for the people on the inside - but unless your willing to share its just douchey to partake of them with "outsiders".

I grew up on message boards, moderated one, I mentor on gardening forums. Tens of thousands of combined posts.

This one is weird though. You guys are weird. I think it has something to do with the IRL component.

I am the worst at real life, for many of the reasons you posted above. No deletes or edits in real life, and I fart when I'm talking.

Looks like I walked into an AA meeting for forum posters....I see the coffee and donuts are in the back and it's Andy's turn to talk so I'll wait my turn while sucking on a spliff. Actually, I'm off to the bathroom to sell some nips cause a man has gotta make a living.

"Please feel free to add other reasons why I am an epic failure at message boards.".....for me it's cause your math is so good, it makes me feel stupid counting on my fingers and toes.
