    it has occurred to me during the past hour that the joke may very well be on our "visitors". they have obviously spent a great deal of time going through every section, reading a lot of posts. that's the only way they could have gotten to know us well enough to sneak in and create posts that might be real ... might be not.

    they are working a lot harder at this than we are. maybe some juvenile probation office sent them our way to keep them busy and off the streets for a while.

    if we keep our wits ... and our collective sense of humor ... about us, WE will have the last laugh.

    after all ... they all have to go back to school (or their juvenile detention center) sooner or later, and we'll still be here having a good time. :wink:

    we had some unwelcome "visitors" to the board last week. goofball posts that ranged from simply stupid to truely foul and obscene. apparently, the ... people? .... who do such things are known on the web as trolls.

    who knew? until last weekend, i thought trolls either lived under bridges or in doll collections from the 70s. :lol:

    LOL ok..well more creative works.


    sewnsewer2 someone who is a less than polite on message boards to feed their own amusment on the discontent of the message board members. They really are just best ignored. If we let them get to us, then they indeed win. I personally don't like losing so, I choose to ignore them and not gratify them with responses. They eventually get bored and move on to other poor souls on other message boards.

    Its really a sad deal because these arent juveniles! At least the originals werent. I still have the link to the original attack that the "Turncoat" posted. They thought it was pretty hillarious!!! And we arent the only ones they attack.
