    Malia, you seem pretty cool to me. And I'll let you in on a little secret. I got some mixed reactions when I joined this forum too. The great majority of the comments I got were along the lines of "you are so refreshing!" and "I love your sense of humor!" But I was also called "creepy" by one person, a "lecher" by another, I was asked if I was putting on an act, one person told me "I pity you", and another said I "brought the IQ of the board down 50 points." Rick Nelson said "You can't please everyone, so you got to please yourself." And he wasn't just talking about in bed.

    The point is that this whole forum is based around people being themselves. What makes people tick, and what we can maybe learn from that. Whatever anyone thinks of me, all I can do is be me. It doesn't mean I take a hostile "I'm a jerk and you have to deal with it" attitude, it just means I don't sit around worrying if I'm bothering someone or not. If someone really is bothered by me, and they actually tell me, it might be something we can actually work out. It's happened on a few occasions. But if they just hold something against me from afar, then, hey, that's their problem, not mine. Life goes on. And it's too short to walk on eggshells or constantly worry that I might be doing something wrong. So I say Rock on with your cool self. And if the Devil doesn't like it, he can sit on a tack.

    Yeah, there's a reason SPs don't do metaphors.

    Attention whoring and trolling are very different things. Trolling involves trying to get a reaction out of or bait someone into a debate by using personal insults or by giving the perception of personal insults. Attention whoring is just that, whoring for attention.

    This is not to say that I consider maliafee an attention whore.

    mal....by "one of those moments" in the (hook up) thread, i mean one of these moments. As in Ne feeding Ne much the same as what compels one to start a thread due to a feeling of misunderstanding. Difference is Ne feeding Ne makes placing thought into words to appear very ambiguous.

    I would start a thread but it would be very amiguous. Proof: just take a peak at my threads. At least this one is very legit. And Ne tells me it's bigtime MBTI related. The other Ne knows how but it's too busy being jealous of the other Ne function.
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    malia, I totally get what you are saying about shutting up the shop and getting out of town when you have upset people. Do you do this in other parts of your life as well? (I do sometimes so it just sounded familiar) I like pizza.

    First off, thanks to those of you who've said nice things to me, and have been supportive.

    As to Jeffster, thanks for sharing your initial experience on this site. That was good to hear, especially from someone who I admire so much on this forum.

    Your advice is just what I needed to hear. I don't worry THAT much about what people think until they seem really upset with me, and then I feel terrible that I've somehow upset them... but you're absolutely correct -- all we can do is be ourselves.

    P.S. I liked your metaphor! Haha...

    Hey, you left out my insults! I worked on those, man!




    malia,

    Who are you? Oh that's right, the chef. Chef malia. Emerralia.

    There's nothing to be embarrassed about. Everyone thinks about leaving the forum at least once a week.

    Sincerely,
    Edahn
