I Need To Clear Something Up

Earlier I posted a thread wondering why a thread I had posted about the EV1 had also shown up by someone else from back in 2008. People here seemed to think I was offended by that. Well, I WASN'T! I am GLAD that it showed up because I just want the info in the threads to get around. I don't care who posts them! The more the merrier! I am not in a competition with anyone. I see DP as a great source for sharing info! I don't think multiple posts are a bad thing unless there are so many they glut the system. Just wanted to let everyone know that.

Ok, thanks for the clarification

Please excuse me. It is my conditioning.

I've been more or less conditioned to think that people are upset at me for one thing or another.

Nice to know that is not the case.

Actually Michael

This thread was not only in response to you seeming to think I was griping at you but also to others that had less than nice things to say to me as well. I didn't realize how that thread sounded so I wanted to make sure people knew where I was coming from. I think some folks take being first to post too seriously and they loose sight of WHY they are posting in the first place. Thank you for the response though.


I meant Lose not loose DOH!

I am my own spelling police. Haha

Ok, thank you again

It can be hard to get your meaning across in this kind of a text-based format. Don't take it personally. People don't know you. It's like we have our whole, full lives, and all anyone one here sees is like the end of one single thread that leads to you. That end of the thread is not the whole you, but people create an entire picture from it.

People around here are pretty jumpy and on edge, I think, in general. Including me.

It would help everyone if we all lightened up a bit.

Thank you for your posts skippy.

I Guess

that in light of the mess our world is in those of us that are aware have every reason to be jumpy. All we have is each other and I for one am thankful for the Daily Paul. Thanks for giving it to us. It keeps me hopeful.


skippy d

First, if/when things are posted more than once, THANK HEAVEN. Because I do miss a lot of stuff, and how would I know to search if I didn't know what it was in the first place?

As for some being jumpy. I know that I may sound bland or gruff at times, but if you read into what I say rather than who I say it to, you will realize that I am more upset at a situation and not the person. So if in the future you think that I have some vendetta against you or someone else, well now you know that is never my intent :-)

I hate that you

are conditioned to think that.

Life should not be so stressful, huh?

Case in Point

Someone voted your comment down. WHY? I have no idea. I thought it was great. I voted it back up. Maybe they read it wrong.

Yeah, me too

I've learned a lot about not letting it bother me. That is a process. But in the end, I think it is a helpful one, overall.

Thanks for your concern! It helps me to see that it is my problem, and also that I've made great progress.

No Problem

On my end. I know how to scroll with a mouse as I see fit.
