Glitches and Blackholes

I remember posting something today somehow it dissapeared. I wonder where it went to maybe my cat ate it. Was there something in it that was offensive to the site I don't think so. Maybe the Blog fairy came and stole but damn she didn't even leave me a quarter. More than likely it was the horrendous glitches that have been popping up all over the sight. Sending my post into the abyss of cyber-nowhere. ~sigh~

Is there no safe haven from all the quirky behavior of the site. I suppose not at least here though I can ban stupidity and outrageous behavior. Options I don't like using however if need be I will.

The only thing I can say good about the site is that while they were working the adlines were a stellar place. The blogs make for some interesting reading and the friends I have made are treasured. If it weren't for them I probably would have left the site.

Thank you for reading and putting up with me!!

Krissy my guess our good friend has a corrupt side to him we dont yet know about!! Lol.

Flagg I know what you mean about leaving here except for a few good ones, i find myself logging on here on route to the bathroom in the mornings & read everything as i drink my first coffee. Then i pop along various times of the day too when i can...sad eh!

Nah its not really as its nice to see how people are feeling & help lift up those who are down & laugh with each other when things are good.

If you leave here we will hunt you down you know.

Try not to feel so sorry for yourself we all go through some painful breakups. You will move on you are a bigger person than most for letting him. We're all here for you even though I'm not right lately.

Phoenix I can hide pretty damn well the search could take years at which point you will find me on an island clutching onto my friend a soccer ball named wilson.

Hey Patrick,

I posted in one of the groups that I belong to. After a day, the post still hadn't shown up. I thought the system had eaten the post so I reposted. The next day BOTH posts showed up in the thread.

I agree that if it weren't for the people I know on the website, I would be out of here too. The blogs keep me going. I understand that there will be a new format for the Advice Line withing a month and that is why they are not bothering to fix it now. It is too bad because a lot of people have stopped using it. There are relative few new posts as compared to previously. Another indicator that many people are not using Advice Line is that the score for the most respected responders has gone very low.

I also used to get a lot of email and profile views because of the Advice Line and I don't get them anymore.

The only good thing is that I get to bed earlier now because there are not that many questions to respond to and many of them suck. Bathtub ring guy seems to be the only regular poster now and some other lunatic who posts nonsense.

"This too shall pass."


PS: I was in Manhattan this past week attending a meeting in a building across the street from the site of the world trade center. I couldn't believe the size of the hole. It is enormous and pictures don't give you the enormity of it unless you see it in person. I guess you get to see it regularly.

Oh, ya, blogs are not safe from the glitch gremlins.
I have had posts not appear until weeks later. Seriously.
I tried posting my "Calendar Girl" blog one morning... the page just froze. I tried again, it froze again. Then I gave up & went to work. Only to return home that evening to find it had gotten posted twice, and already had some reponses to it.

Groups are worse... I made posts a few months ago that STILL haven't shown up. hmmm...not that I've checked recently. I gave up on the groups a long time ago. Advice lines... *sigh* I'm enjoying the blogs too much right now, anyway. It looks like they're getting better, but I can't bring myself to answer a single question anymore.

"This site is experiencing operational difficulties, please stand by."

Lots of growing pains here. Hopefully "they" (whoever they are) will find a way to get their shit together, sooner than later.
