First, I was wrong. Let me get that out of the way. I'm guilty, guilty, guilty.
What was I wrong about? Well, I was firing off notes to people on my Cupid Report. I sent out eight. Two came back (spammers) and six had the text stripped (spammers).
Then I sent out the ninth. I had absoultely no intention of pissing anyone off. The photo with the ad had a good clear resolution. You saw the tops of a pair of shoulders, a neck, part of a chin, and a spot of hair on the top. The face was obliterated with an arc of white.
Not a problem. I don't have my photo on-line either - but it seemed odd that you'd put up a photo that really showed nothing at all. So I sent off a note commenting that the picture was sort of okay, but the lone ranger mask needed to be worked on.
That was it. About 12 words.
Anyway I received a reply that used 'A-hole' about six or seven times and she made it pretty darned clear she didn't have a sense of humor.
I had never received an AdultFriendFinder e-mail with such utter rage or even hatred. But just about the time I was formulating a reply, it dawned on me, the lady was right.
Everyone (myself included) can tense up with criticism. I figure I made the mistake of sending a note at all, or at least of not using smilies. I also might have been the 50th guy to comment on it.
So the lesson here is if it isn't positive, don't say it. At least not in a first, second, or third e-mail!
Anyone sell asbestos undies? Mine burned right through.

Good question - nope - her e-mail said I should never contact her again. I suspect she'd just delete it before reading it, anyway.|

Hi, welcome to blog!|
Are you aware there is a new group created for bloggers and their readership to meet and frolic in the chat room? (A place for serious discussion as well)
A group where interesting blog posts will be “spot-lighted” along with the links of how to get there. A place where new kids on the block can actually get seen as well as the predominant “hierarchy”.
A place where ideas can flow--from suggested blog topics, to writing "critiques", to directions on how to better use the elements of color, photos, and font style/size to make your blog more eye appealing; as well as instructions on how to better use linking to other posts.
Being that this is an adult site, we will also have a group post running where writers and their followers can indicate where they're from so maybe you might actually be able to meet some folk "local" to you.
Flirtatious banter is encouraged--crude obscene assaults will not be tolerated and are subject to deletion.
So...Stop in and have a little fun over your cup o' joe!
Here is a link to the group Blog Cafe, look forward to meeting you there!
