    I believe they said something about deleting their profile temporarily.

    going into hibernation... hiding the profile rather than deleting?

    was that in an email or on a thread somewhere...

    I find some guys on this site are very touchy. I'm always accused of this myself, yet when I get rude replies on here I don't get into a tantrum, and hide, or put someone on ignore, or block anyone.

    If you open your mouth to some one here, they either hide their account or put you on ignore, or block you (even if you have never ever emailed or IM them).

    I replied rather harshly to one guy on here just a few days ago. He then sent me an email, and blocked me so he would not get my reply. I believe he has me on ignore also. This site is getting very childish. Guys, grow up.

    I don't get this major media blitz when men on this site grow either frustrated, bored or just plain worn out from the playground type of mentality that goes on here.

    I have to admit being abystander sometimes reminds me of grammar school.
    I have will be the first to admit that I have played during recess myself. I am very careful as to what games I play.

    I have had a few confrontations on this never to the point to where I would delete my account. I just simply get the that poster "TOGETHER" and I "just keep it pushin".

    There is a little x on the top right hand corner of the window. You just click it when you get frustrated. No need for all the drama.

    It is attention most are looking for. A thread like this starts up, and if there are enough complements, hey presto he's back.

    This would not be good at all..... I just exchanged an e-mail yesterday.
    Doug said Bill was sick with the flu, but that probably wouldn't be the reason for the exit. Hope they come back VERY soon!

    hahahaha....totally.


    I never understood the ignore mentality....seems childish to me. I always like the threads titled "well I'm deleting my account tomorrow."


    haha

    Well, this is interesting...

    Mike, as one christian to another, this is very un-christian of you.
    Your cynicism has overtaken your christian ethic.
    Others take note, this is how some christians treat each other.

    Something happened yesterday and we needed time to regain equilibrium and for contemplation.

    As this topic has proved, too many know how to criticize and it seems time here on RJ has honed that ability to razor sharpness. We're guessing that this happens in order to accepted as 'savvy, smart, cool n fun'. What's lost in the process is compassion and sensitive perception.


    Bill's slowly recovering; a thank you to those that asked after him.

    Many have sent us emails both directly and via RJ mail asking after us and if we'd return soon.
    They didn't post here, so it's not for public attention that we return so soon. It's for them.

    You know what I love about a thread like this? The people who clearly have no positive interest in the person concerned that feel the need to come in and point out just how anyone else should should react when they lose contact with a friend. It's as if a group of friends were sitting at a coffee table concerned about a friend of theirs and the loud-mouthed idiot they all met at a party once comes up and tells them just how foolish and overly emotional they're being about their friend; after all, if the idiot isn't concerned about someone that doesn't matter to him why should people anyone else be concerned about that person?

    Gracious me.

    If you see a thread like this and the person in question doesn't matter to you, nor do you have any information about them, then kindly move on and let those who may be concerned figure it out. In other words, butt out.

    I have to say when I first saw that Meninlove's profile was gone, I was so bloody happy!!! icon_biggrin.gif
    HEAR ME OUT........icon_mad.gif
    But afterwards I felt a bit bothered by it. Guilt, because of some of the things I said? NO! (They have no problem being nasty old sods when it suits them. (Especially with me.))
    I guess it bothered me because many on this site enjoy them and hold them in high esteem. (Why? I have no bloody idea. icon_rolleyes.gif (Unless it's respect for the elderly. icon_lol.gif )
    Be that as it may, losing any member that contributes positively to the collective is a loss for us all.
    So stay on this site. Continue blowing rainbows and sunshine up everyone's arses!! icon_wink.gif

    Well I just spoke with both of them on the phone last night, not about this issue, but to check how Bill's cold is doing. In fact, I had missed the post about them going on an RJ hiatus or something. They both sounded great & upbeat, with no mention of this matter here, and we had some good laughs.

    (But then, I'm not sure if their account went inactive AFTER I spoke with them -- I've been known to have that effect on people. LOL!)

    In any case, very glad they seem to be staying active with us. I've done the same thing myself a few times online, when I had to focus all my attention on more urgent personal matters, and needed to remove all distractions.

    Sure, just don't log on, but I wish I had such self-control with something that becomes habit forming, so I'd just freeze or block the account to make it more difficult to be tempted. And to keep people from sending internal emails that I wasn't likely to answer for a while.

    Here's hoping the guys from B.C. have sorted everything out, and that Bill's health continues to improve. icon_biggrin.gif

    Thank you Red Vespa. We'd never leave over a phone call from you.

    Bill's hanging in. For some reason a blinding headache today - started an hour ago. Thought things were getting better.

    We left over a comment that cut pretty deep. No not you Musclequest. You'd have to be considered a close friend in order to hurt us that way, which is what we consider this person to be, and they have since apologized, as their comment came out in a way they didn't intend.
    That's solid gold to us, and both of us value this person's friendship very, very much.

    Musclequest thanks. That's alot coming from you. Appreciated and noted.
