    Yah me too. I have a soft spot, even for the people I barely talk to. It's like a dysfunctional family.

    But there has been much misunderstanding, and it seems detrimental to rush to a conclusion of malintent.
    Since the volunteer work I do involves children...currently focusing on bullying/violence/delinquency/etc. I know there is a movement to get this kind of thing out of the schools.

    Now until Corolis arrived (I think you had already formed a opinion regarding what I was doing...) it's a popular thing to say that supporters of this 'don't like appreciation and genuine positive intent.' No, I want more appreciation...And while I never will mention a name or wish for my name to be mentioned in this thread which kinda scares me... I will be returning to the thread in the Fluff Zone.

    There is a big difference between 'appreciation'...and being made an 'example of.' (with negative comments.)

    I'm done here.

I appreciate @UniqueMixture for living upto his italian-american stereotype of being a womanizer - so that we can further stereotype the italians and call him fonzi - and giving tips to get laid more. I appreciate @Mane for reminding me and canadian children that jesus is actually jewish. I appreciate @AffirmitiveAnxiety for reminding me of my hilarious friend; who coincidentally died around his age. I appreciate @Lexicon for continuously talking about cats and dressing up her cat like shakespeare to encourage us to become theatre enthusiasts. On a serious note I really like you for being friendly, chatty and for having a good sense of humour.
    I apologise to time on your behalf for having a name that displeasures most.

    and after all it's done for you...

    I appreciate @Riva. He puts me in mentions and makes me feel a tiny bit special when I see a notifications point at the top of the page. Anticipation is nice too.

    I appreciate:

    @Amargith for her endless insights on how people operate
    @Orobas for similar, and sharing some fanfics with me
    @EJCC for generally being a level-headed breath of fresh air in all our encounters
    @bologna for so often being the other side of the coin of my own thoughts
    @Riva for being almost insolent in a way that can always be forgiven
    @Zarathustra for continuing to fight the good fight
    @gromit for reminding me of the roses I should be smelling more often

    and many others I am too tired to write a decent few words about now, but am nonetheless thinking of.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    I appreciate you all for not putting me in a position where I'm expected to effusively reciprocate the feelings externalized.

    That's kinda the definition of a circle-jerk, right there...

    I see a lot of Fe bias in these threads - like the presupposition that conflict is a universally bad thing, and public ego-stroking a universally good one.
    There's also a whole bunch of icky passive-aggression.
    Not everyone glories in that. Not everyone is terrified of "negativity" either. We are not all the same and there's no point pretending we are or insisting that anyone who finds this sort of thing cheap and tasteless is in some way defective. Or that the people who enjoy it and are allergic to conflict are similarly damaged. Different (ego) strokes. If MBTI has taught us anything, it should surely been that minimum level of tolerance and understanding.

    I guess the objective way to measure such threads is to survey whether they create more good feeling than bad. By that standard, the thread has probably failed, whatever good intentions may have spawned it. If the same positive comments had been communicated privately, then only the positive part of the message would have been transmitted - sans drama. It seems like a simple solution to me, but I guess there are those people who need to be seen doing their appreciation thing. On one level I find that distasteful. On another, it's amusing. Some of the most splendid entertainment derives from the comedy of manners. I suspect cultural biases feed into such judgments too.

    @Duck_of_Death, for having exquisite taste in movies and video games. I swear, sometimes I feel like I'm looking in the mirror.
    @Jonny, for actually being kinda cool for a nerd.
    @Stigmata, for making posts that have been known to make me laugh.
    @Lark, for responding to my posts, and for being politically incorrect.
    @Lexicon, for being among the least stuck-up females on the forum. I actually don't even hate you.
    @Webslinger, for agreeing with me about that egg skull thingy.
    @DiscoBiscuit, for having an alternative political viewpoint that punches the liberal asshats in the face.
    @bologna, for being the most chill mod on the forum.
    @Jennifer, for being like @Lexicon, except older, and has actually seen Star Wars.
