    ...with no ill-will I say, "Why?".

    What makes him more man of the day material than Vaughn, Venkyjock, JESIE, mybud... etc etc etc etc etc etc?

    People have posted more, and said more meaningful things than him... and I have no malice behind this... but they have not been chosen to be backed by all the men of the day supporters...

    Where is this magical voting group and how do you determine who is next to rally for?

    I'm not saying that anyone is "more" than anyone, T.

    I am saying that METTA8 has made some outstanding contributions to the forums on our virtual online community as of late and that I acknowledge and appreciate him today.

    Every RJ member is eligible to be MOTD (if they choose to participate).
    Every RJ member can vote (or not).

    Again, I encourage the community to consider voting for METTA8 for MOTD today.

    Be Well!
    Alan

    Again, not trying to bust any balls...

    Feel free to vote or not vote for whomever you choose, T.

    I believe that it is good to acknowledge contributions. Acknowledgement and appreciation are free, and they are valued. It's a shame that people don't appreciate and acknowledge each other more.

    Maybe somebody will acknowledge you one day.

    To the community - Please consider voting for METTA8 for MOTD. Thanks! :-)

    Sorry Trev. This former MOTD voted for him this morning and will be happy to support him until he gets the honor. Metta8 posts some very thoughtful words in the forums and he's an overall great guy. Handsome as hell too.

    He's my choice and should be YOURS as well!

    METTA8 has my vote.
    He is very informative and always shares his knowledge with us here on RJ. His posts are very enlightening. Oh, did I mention that he is a man that cares and gets involved. He deserves to be MOTD.

    You are welcome! I request the "leaders" here on RJ also follow suit and vote for Metta8. Thanks to meninlove and Geoedward among others to support a really good guy and provide us with positive comments.

    All he does is post dozens of links to articles. But he rarely (if ever) posts links that criticize liberals / Democrats / socialists, therefore, by virtue of him conforming to the "gay political norm" of being liberal / Democrat / socialist, Metta8 is more than qualified for the silly MOTD award on RJ. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Try to disguise that deepwater well of bitterness once in a while. You're contaminating all the fish and wildlife.

    I'm far from bitter. So please excuse yourself while you put your foot in your mouth and people ask why and don't get an answer.

    That unprovoked personal attack from the queen of bitter, loneliness and desperation - jprichva - was launched at me, not you ShinyToyTrev. icon_wink.gif

    Oh I saw it. But it still makes me look at people and go, "What?"

    It's sad that it has to stoop so low as personal attacks when someone just questions why.

    lol, shiny, jp was not speaking to you, but to a rather acrimonious individual. As for Metta8, when you asked where his grand imaginary contributions were you insulted.

    If you want to see them, look at Metta8's profile and scroll down to topics he's posted on. This will take quite a while.

    Yes , he rounds up interesting bits of information from various sites looking for things that might be something stimulating to talk about. He points us to it, makes a comment to start something then , lets it go.

    (My only suggestion is he actually just paste in the story and credit it than post the link. The readers prefer it, I found, from when I filled the same kind of function on another site.)


    Trev, if it helps you, think of it as metta puts together a morning general interest news magazine show. He brings up subjects and puts it out there for OUR entertainment. Some stories will have good buzz, occasionally you pick a dud.

    He is a presenter (an actual job title that Brits recognise - our equivalent is a TV host).
    I
    if you do not like his "show" there is absolutely nothing - ZERO - stopping you launching your own "rival show" if you do not the content he chooses to present.)

    But I will warn you, doing it is a lot of WORK - you are constantly scouring the net, finding fun bits, and trying to pick a good line-up for the day. Sometimes you pick one that goes nowhere and it turns into a dud - no one has anything to say.

    It is "The View" only you get to be on the panel.

    But just like Barbara gets the recognition for doing the work:

    All of which honestly have made it onto Yahoo news. Believe it or not, there are other places to find news than RealJock message boards. So no, it's not an insult, they are not grand contributions by any standard, it's a copy and paste matter if you want to get right down to it.

    And no where did I not say I do not support him, I was asking why a stand behind was in order for this one guy. So while I've been getting personal attacks and no one can hand me a good answer other than, "He posts links" it's decidedly so, that me, "the insolent cynic" actually has the right to question and come up with an answer other than the few people who are just blindly going, "Vote ______ for MOTD!". We are told to ask why as a kid, and then not to ask why as an adult. Hate to break it to you but now that I'm an adult and some things just don't make any damn sense, I'm going to ask why.
