    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.

    I'll go deal with your 108 if you'll deal with my damn son. HOLY COW HE WAS INTOLERABLE. When I finally told him to STFU about all the things he's asking about and for, he started whining about this other girl who's butting into his business. again, STFU kid.

    Good thing - tomorrow I have a wedding to attend, sans kids.

    I don't know too much about Thomas or his adopted son, but am I the only one who's kind of :uhoh: at how dismissive, angry, and resentful he comes off as when talking about him?

    It's honestly kind of off-putting. I'm not sure why everyone's like 'omg good job for putting up with him; you're the best!'

    That's not the reaction I've had, at all.

    Wow! I'd be furious if I were you. What made her think it was okay to drive your car? And how did she get your keys?

    And what does your sister's roommate have to do with the story? :)

    Wait, your roommate's sister, or your sister's roommate? :confused:


    Thomas is a fucking saint. The amount of shit that that man puts up with is unholy. He has taken on a bigger burden than most people can even dream about. The fact that he still manages to be kind, funny, intelligent, and generally upbeat should be enough to nominate him for a nobel peace prize. I'd have murdered half the people in my building if I had to deal with 1/1000 of the bullshit he does. If he needs to come in here and vent a little bit, then he is more than welcome. But just because you don't know the story doesn't mean you get to paint him as some sort of bad parent. If you don't like it than you can just put him on ignore.

    It's hard to respond to this without coming off as corny, but so be it, I guess. What comes across in most, if not all, of Thomas's posts about his children is just how devoted he is to them and how much he loves them. He's voluntarily made his life much harder than it has to be--much harder than I've made my own life--in order to devote himself to kids who are very, very difficult. Loving those kids doesn't mean he doesn't experience frustration with them, and I don't think Thomas has a lot of real life outlets to talk about the really difficult side of what he does. When he expresses his frustrations here, I never get the sense that he's resentful or bitter.

    Like I said, I don't know anything about him or his situation, but just from reading the last couple posts in this thread from him about his adopted son, can you see why I had that reaction?

    I'm not passing any judgment and never did I insinuate he was a bad parent. Frankly, I was just worried for the kid. I remember crushing on girls when I was a little kid in puberty, and if I had found out that my dad thought I was a dumbass and never deserved to be with any of those girls, joking that he'd make sure I was a 25-yo virgin, I'd be pretty crushed. That's just mean.

    Again, I know he's not serious about the whole cock-block thing. Not trying to stir anything here.

    Sorry. Roommate's sister. She drove me to the airport so I'm guessing she just assumed she could use it all weekend. Anyways, she just walked in but she's with a friend so I'm going to wait till the friend leaves.

    Not to pick on you Froggy, but that right there is basically insinuating that he's a bad parent in some manner of fashion.

    And god damn you Cupcake for being all eloquent and shit when all I wanted to do was write in big letters

    I don't think or believe he's a bad parent, so, again, I'm not trying to insinuate he is one.

    And when you type like that, I can't take you seriously.

    its a place to rant/vent... think about if your bosses read some of your previous posts in this thread... hell the rants alone about WAGs of SF members in this thread is mostly just to vent.

    A couple of weeks ago I broke a brand new fountain pen the same way. I had just filled it with ink, and the next thing I knew it was bouncing off the floor, tip first. :fu:

    True. I'm just going to stop talking because I obviously don't know the entire situation and I don't want to incite other members.

    I think that the key is that thomas needs a place to vent - we are here a community of people that is great for this kind of anonomous venting.


    Thomos has, vollantarily, undertaken one of the hardest things that a person can do, for no reason other than exces love and a desire to make the world a better place for some children who have nobody to love and take care of them. these kids are not easy to deal with. I'm lucky, my kids might give me a little grief, but they are pretty easy. in a lot of ways, Thomas is dealing with parenting mistakes and neglect that the children's biological parents carried out years ago. yes, the only term for this is a saint.

    if Thomas wants to vent he should vent
