I don't know which attracted my attention first; The cute stock boy maneuvering the rack past me, or the really plump whole chickens that he was about to put out for sale. I didn't think much about it until I saw a little old lady quickly scooping them into her shopping cart. "69 cents a pound, really good price!" she exclaimed.

 

I looked over at the cut-up chicken at $3.99/lb and suddenly remembered that I knew how to cut up a chicken. It's really easy: http://italianfood.about.com.

 

Since I was able to spent less on a 3lb chicken than I would have spend on three 1lb cut-ups, it means I can have baked chicken tonight, chicken salad sandwiches tomorrow, and chicken soup the day after. The point is that I can take my chicken and I can stretch it out over three meals for the same price as the cut-up chicken.

 

When I was child we understood this concept. However, somewhere along the way a lot of people have opted for the "Easy" way to do things to the point that they've forgotten about the basics.

 

Now the funny part of this message is that a few people won't get the point no matter how hard they try to figure it out. They'll end up squawking like a bunch of wet hens and puffing themselves up like they were fighting for the attention of the rooster that the farmer will never let into the hen house.

 

It's very possible that I'll never realize Hooboy's and my Dream of a Gentlemen's club. However, I now know that we can get a lot closer. There is only a small number of people that are stirring the pot and at this point I'm perfectly willing to kick their ass to the curb.

 

It's really simple, if your not willing to show a reasonable amount of respect to the Message Center and its Members, don't let the door hit you on the way out. Like I've said before, there are other venues that will welcome you with open arms.

 

Best Regards,

Daddy

Hmm...I have read some pretty nasty stuff on this Message Board over the years. At times, there were those who called others names, were disrespectful or just plain attacked others. Often, these folks would disappear from the MC for a while if they got particularly unruly, but then would somehow be let back in.

 

It was always sad to see. Escorts and posters were often slapped down and insulted by the few just for relating opinions or experiences. Correct me if I am wrong, but I thought that was what the MC was about. I remember recently feeling very bad for a young new escort who tried to post here only to be attacked because another escort had hired him and posted a review. This guy was always pleasant and seemed quite humble to me. It makes no sense to me, wouldn't it be good to have more escorts posting here?

 

The few that should have been "kicked to the curb" permanently were always let back, and when things got out of hand, everyone was "kicked to the curb". Honestly, I do not understand that. It seems like this has become almost an annual event, shutting down the message board when the few get out of hand.

 

Daddy, while you must be admired for the work that you put in this thing, and the last thing that I would wish for you is health problems as a result of dealing with the hate that is sometimes spewed around here, it is my humble opinion that people who are abusive, insulting and disrespectful should never be allowed back on here.

 

I do realize that this is your MC and so you may run it as you wish. It is also my option to continue to post or not, and unfortunately I choose to no longer participate (I will watch the door and my ass on my way out). Thank you very much for your hard work.

 

I truly wish the best for all and I hope that some folks will learn to not be so hateful and attack others, really folks think about it, life is too short.

Glad to see the message center up and running again (I think)

 

I found it amazing how much more work I got done around the house and how early I got to bed during it's hiatus.

 

For every cloud there is a silver lining.......

The problem is that I don't have any way to check a persons fingerprints when they register. 90% of the time I can use various means to detect that a person shouldn't be here but if they are persistent they'll be back.

 

Mind you I can file federal charges against them but that's both expensive and time consuming.

 

However I've found that people that come back in after being deactivated tend to behave at least for a while.

 

And what do we do about the people that are only a temporary problem? Several times we've had people that went off the deep end and three days later were fine.

 

It's a convoluted problem. Part of the reason that we're moving to new software is that it has a lot more features addressing the issues of "infractions".

I'm not quite sure what this is about, since I usually tune out when posts get snippy, but if you don't like trolls, just don't feed them. It's really not worth getting bent out of shape for, let alone have it affect one's health. I, for one, prefer less censorship. We're all adults (presumably)and should be mature enough to tune out when people get nasty. Get a grip!

I have been reading the messages of the forum, but have been unable to login for one reason or another using my IE. Tonight I decided to use Mozilla which my associates say is far superior to IE as a web browser. I did...and I was able to login.

 

I almost went past the last paragraphs of this posting.

 

I believe the forum will be as Hooboy envisioned it. From the very beginning I have always believed, this forum is for gentlemen.

 

In a previous posting of St James, A Club Prive in Rome, I described the place as a place of people...varied...different...clique prone and bitchy to some extent on some nights, but I always remember with fondness the gentlemen who frequented the place and I reminisce with the good times, the people and the different characters they have...their moods...their morality and religiosity. They, We are all different. yet when we do down that flight of stairs, a change somehow happened . My soulful, lonely, kind friends become bitchy...for one reason or the other... they assume a different identity, much like a J & H ...sometimes the reverse happens the most talkative macho guy becomes timid and sulked in the corner bar.

 

But one thing is for sure. We made friends. .. some deeper than the others...but surely there was a connection.

 

One thing that makes me smile today is the fact that when the police did their usual once a month sting or inspection...everyone , with no exception protects one another or in general keep calm, quite forcing the cops to leave-- there is no reason for them to be there--- the bar is full of docile gentlemen enjoying a drink or conversing as politely as possible.

 

Now, Daddy... do you apply the same technique of cutting the chicken for turkey and goose? How about fish? do you have any process for preparing fish?

That, IMHO would be a real mistake. You can "ignore" someone by just not reading his posts. There are some members here that I will mostly ignore, depending on the subject, but sometimes they come across with something interesting - like a link I would be sorry if I missed.

 

Also, if we did have an ignore function, would it only ignore a thread that was started by him/it or would it also ignore a post he/it would be replying to?

 

If the latter was the case it could make subsequent posts to the thread hard to understand.

 

I would vote for NO IGNORE FEATURE.

Let me preface my remarks by saying that to my knowledge there is no twit filter in the new software. I haven't found it, anyway.

 

However let's address the fallacy of "just don't read it".

 

You have to read it to decide whether you don't want to read it.

 

You CANNOT "just don't read it".

 

I am actually in favor of adding a twit filter, but sadly I don't think it's on the horizon.
