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,

    Some real class showing here from all sides. All but the OP should stop posting on this thread.

    I don't mind if other post at all. Some things I've read in here have all been really good and I've gotten some good PM's.

    I was posting for two reasons.

    One, my way of dealing is talking about it. If I don't, I just let it build up in my head.

    Two, I didn't know if I can help anybody. If I could stop one person from doing it, it would help me out a great deal.

    Don't mind why, he has the Internet Asperger's Syndrome (ie, lacks textual communication skills, demonstrates limited empathy with his peers, and is mentally clumsy). It's really an unfortunate disability.

    JB, I'm not sure why you'd air laundry like that on SF.

    I'm not sure why you would bring it up a second time in the same thread.

    The explanation is not in line with this thread, so I'm not going to discuss it here.

    I think it was in poor taste for you to bring it up in this thread at all. It didn't add anything to the conversation. Just sayin.'

    To the OP: I didn't read your entire first post (and I thought it would be a little out of line to post the Colin Powell pic), but, I wish you well.

    It's more along the lines of sociology and it's not really that hard to understand. If you disagree with my statements you'd best be served by making an actual point yourself instead of expressing your disagreement with my own via hyperbolic insults.

    Reading that brought a tear to my eye. I have lost people very close to me recently and I definately understand what your going through. One of my best friends was killed in an auto accident and even a couple of years later its still hard. Dont let anyone tell you things are going to be ok, because they are not. Things will never go back to normal, because someone who was such an influence in your life is gone. Things will however, move on. And so will you. In time you will in your own way come to terms with what happened and you will keep your head up high and get on with your life. You have a new child who will never get to know her grandma, so honor her memory by sharing with her when the time is right what a wonderful person she was.

    It took huge balls to post this on a forum as inpersonal as this one is, and you get huge respect for that.

    Keep your head up and just know that everyday is different, but hopefully everyday is better.

    Dude hate to break it to you but you are an asshole. Whether or not you are right or wrong is beside the point, but hijacking this guys thread to be a dick is pretty low class. Continually trying to validate what you said is an even bigger jackass thing to do.

    Speaking of what you are supposed to say to someone when a loved one dies, in my culture, the thing you say to someone when a family member dies is "May God forgive him/her." Always thought that was interesting.

    I'm not going to dignify this with a response. This is ridiculous.

    I apologize to the OP for having to put up with this in his thread.


    You just responded

    Wouldn't you think?!

    I could argue aimlessly with the poster, but I'm not going to, because it has no purpose.
