I am here to magnify, testify, and to glorify the members of this medium that provide me with so much humor, laughter and an occasional side trip to complete utter absurdity.  I love the people who populate this place, the astute, the not so astute, and even those who just do not get it. 

Period. 

This is such an interesting place to visit and hang for awhile, where you can mix and mingle with the characters involved in the bus community and learn from it all.  So as I sit here this morning and take a little time to reflect on all this I can see it for what it truly might be.

A place where one can learn, a place to grow, and in my case ... to heal.  I am forever grateful. 

Now here is my question:  “Which one of you Mr. Goodwrench Wanna-be’s bailed out on the ignore list?  I am down to only five, and we all know that is not a good number for a proper lynching.”

Have a good weekend, or don't, the choice is still yours.

How do you find out and where do you find out just who is ignoring you?  Normally I do not even give a Crap but this has been such an issue to some, some actually trying to get a "Most Ignored" quota and some like me could care less but now you have my attention.  Maybe I am not loved like I hope by others.  Only thinking out loud here, my most interest is in articles about bussing although I have been flamed in the past, (horribly) because of their bravery sitting behind a computer. 

With age & health catching up on me quickly and realizing life is so freakin short I don't wish to ignore anyone to offend, I just don't read their post.  But now for the 1st & last time I will see who just hates my crap on here.

I am up to three.  Strongly suspect they are people who showed up, made a fuss and left.  We should automatically de-register people who don't post for six months, then their "ignores" would fall away.  Or you could just bribe a moderator or the list owner, they probably know...

I ignored some people once just so I could see what it looked like, I recall you get to see their post with an empty message box.  That would bug the heck out of me.

I like BCO, I thought anyone who blings out a trailer has to be OK in my book.   Cool

I obviously need to work on this as I'm currently not ignored by anyone. So there's no time like the present. Here goes:

What weight oil should I use in my bus?
Is it about getting there quicker or enjoying the scenery?
I wanna buy a $50k bus for 12 dollars and change.
Should I license and insure my bus as commercial or an RV?
I vote for both parties and I usually vote like 6500 times
I'm here illegally
I like bigger government and higher taxes
I think oil should be about $9 a gallon and $6 of that should go to new taxes for obamacare (that one will go over big)
and lastly, I'm not sure what a 9/16's open end wrench is.

There, that has to make at least a couple folks mad enough to unfriend me. Have I left out any of the flame fest fire starters?

Laughing my butt off thinking of how predictable we are as a whole. Reminder: I'm joking people.

Rick

By the way I planned ahead and I am actually "pre-unfriending" Jerry Liebler for when I get to heaven. Eternity may not be long enough for me to unfriend him. LOL. Every once in awhile I wonder where he's gone and then I'm reminded we are two years away from the election and I'm reassured he'll be back.

Who really cares when someones ignores you it just means they don't agree and it pisses them off because you don't agree with them, the last time I looked I was at 6.

The part I like since the BNO doesn't have the ignore feature you piss someone off there they come here to hit the ignore button Grin

Clifford, you're slipping.  You are down to three.  I was up to five but now it's only two.  I had pretty much thought one got ignored for statements made in the Off Topic section.  Tempers used to get hot there, especially during presidential election time.  That was easily understandable to me since most everyone just wants to vent their own opinion and is not much interested in the "nonsense" that others think.  However, it does seem that there are some nuts that get riled up over differences in mechanical opinions enough to ignore other posters.  This seems very counterproductive to me since having narrow political or religious opinions is without any real world consequences. Making mechanical errors, though, can cost money and sorrow, so it's certainly best to hear everyone out.

I enjoy this board immensely! I never gave it any thought before, but because of this thread I decided to check and sure enough, I just discovered that even I am ignored by 1. I wonder what I said? I wish I knew who it was so I could thank them for putting me in such GOOD company.

Don

Looks like seven to me for you. You have to pride yourself I'm sure there have been people kicked off the board with less IGNORES LOL. I'm surprised by the number of people that are being ignored on this thread.

Buswarrior shame on you no one ignoring you. I thought you might have picked up a few along the way LOL.

I don't drink beer.  Matter of fact, "you don't drink it, you rent it."  Sadly, when I get up in the morning, that is the best I am going to feel all day.

Had not been over here in a year or so, just thought I would check to see if "absence does make the heart grow fonder" and then low and behold, it did!  Now up to seven that is wonderful, onward and upward.

Kind of nice to see a thread that is positive and cheerful for a change.  Kind of like the seals up in th Arctic, everything was fine, fish were good, swimming was fine ... and then the Killer Whales showed up.  Don'tcha hate it when your thread gets high-jacked and attacked and all of a sudden we are talking breakfast cereal. 

For those who don't like it Clifford.  We could offer up the old Senility Prayer:  Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

But I understand all of that has now changed due to the current problems in the Middle East and the administration in Washington D.C. has issued a new phrase to be instituted as soon as possible.  

It is as follows:  “May the fleas of a thousand camels infest your desert-approved-housecoat or bathrobe and may your arms be too short for you to scratch.”

So it is written ... So shall it be.
