1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    ^^What would be the best course of action of letting a girl know you'd rather her not send you text messages? The act of simply ignoring them alone doesn't seem to be getting through.

    How about an auto-reply message that says, "mm84321 is no longer accepting your texts?"

    Given that this is a coworker, you could politely ask her to cease and desist, or you will alert HR...

    I have no idea. I've never used one. My cell phone is so primitive, it doesn't even have a camera. (Holding out for a Verizon iPhone 5.) Also, I don't text: I think texting is evil. This is probably because I'm an old curmudgeon, but I'm OK with that.

    I agree. I am not a Luddite, per se, but I feel that some of these "innovations" in how we communicate just ends up destroying people's social skills in general. Alas, I am 19-years-old and my peers do not share such a view, so I must play along.

    Rereading that statement I can see how one might come to that conclusion. I assure you that it's not the case.

    About the kind of response I'd expect. You must be a real catch.

    I'm not looking to start a squabble over something this silly, so we'll just leave it at that.

    I need to vent that I have a colleague at work where things did not turn out. I dont want to go into the details other than to say that everytime I think I have got over her 'she pulls me back in!' It is by way of coming by my desk, emailing or messaging me for work related stuff, or I somehow get dragged back via other co-workers we are jointly on good terms with. I am looking forward to the day when I switch companies and I have her out of sight and hopefully out of mind. When I can say to her on my last day at 5pm 'it was nice knowing you but now it is all finnished'.
    Consciously she wants me in her friendzone and subconsciously I have no doubt I am her 'backup' in ife if things fall through with her current real bf. Neither of these suit me. The challenge is ignoring her given I have been given a project she is on (as an SME) and trying not to come across as 'me' being the 'problem' either through being rude or distant as I end labelled as the one with issues. Either way I will keep comms with her to a minimum, begave professionally and look forward to that job change (whenever that day may come). I probably also need to find someone else to distract me but currently there is no one.
    I don't think I understand this situation, or at least, my understanding of it is not painting you in the best light. A colleague, with a boyfriend, emails you at work about work (which is what colleagues do) or comes to your desk to talk about work (which is what colleagues do), or you find yourself out and about with her because there's a work thing happening (which is what happens at work things) and you are upset that she is "dragging you back in" because you have convinced yourself that she has made you Plan B. As far as I can tell, the posts above don't indicate that she has you as Plan Anything other than "the guy who sits 5 cubicles away", and she's not dragging you "back" anywhere - it sounds more like you were never there to begin with. Are you leaving something out of this story?
