Lots of shit going on...again. Some people thrive on it, others look the other way.

I was looking the other way, for weeks. I wasn't here when all the shit hit the fan...and I out right refused to read any of the blogs pertaining to said shit. That's my right...right?

So...Benny left. Some people are saying he got run off. Really? Personally...I disagree. He chose to leave. He could've stayed...really no reason not to. He also, like alot of others, chose to involve himself in the mess. Right or wrong...it was his choice. No one put a gun to his head and told him to leave. I like Benny and always have, and hope things work out in the end.

Speaking of Benny, lets talk about why he left.
I've said things about people on this site, maybe while in a snit, or maybe just as a personal observation...that could hurt their feelings. I'm sure things have been said about me, that are none too flattering as well. God help us all if Canu and I should ever get into a fight and start posting all the things we've said to each other about the other people on this site over the last couple of years.

Guess what? People do that. Right, wrong or indifferent. Friends do it, acquaintances do it...people who hate each other do it. A chance comment can be made in the midst of a conversation...that can literally come back to haunt you. It happens. Yea...it sucks when someone opens their mouth in a fit of rage...but that's life. Benny did what I would probably do...apologize without making excuses. No one here is perfect.

I guess I just don't get it. And never really have...although I have involved myself in bullshittery on this site in the past, alot of times it was more for entertainment value then because I really gave a shit about the person or persons causing the bullshit. It's the internet people!

This reminds me of a movie I saw once called "Nurse Betty". This site is like a soap opera...or high school. The most exciting part is the drama.

Don't get me wrong...there's been fun stuff too, but it gets drowned out by the cacophony of stomping and yelling...on both sides.

But seriously...it's not as though the people causing the drama are in our backyard, or the office next to us. They are hundreds...or in some cases thousands of miles away, sitting behind their keyboards slinging shit at the rest and probably laughing their asses off at the power they hold. Type a few words and watch the tempers flare! Type a few more and look at the blogs pop up.

Don't get me wrong...I have friends on this site, real friends and they know who they are. I know they can look out for themselves, another reason I haven't jumped into the fray.

But once again, it's getting ridiculous. The only reason the shit has continued for the last few months is because the person stirring it has an audience. If a comedian goes on stage and there is no one to watch him...does he continue his act? No...he packs up and goes home.

Same thing here...if you wrote blogs but got no comments and no views...would you stay? Yea...I know. It's alot more fun to jump in with both feet and voice our opinion. Kinda like a train wreck...you don't want to see the carnage, but you can't help but look.

But...it's always fun until the flying monkeys attack.

There are people on AMD that I may not agree with, but then again, that is human nature. I may not like a few, also. But, you know what? That's life. I enjoy this site, though. Some may not like me, and will disagree with me on occasion, some all the time. Some may disagree with me because they see things differently, others just because they don't like me for one reason or another. Either way, I just don't care. One thing I won't do though is drag someone through the mud. Not necessary, not nice Nice blog.

I know exactly what you mean...I was in the bathroom this moring...sitting on the john when suddenly I heard a loud skreech and felt a bite on my ass. I jumped up to see ten small monkeys leap out of the toilet bowl , knock me down and ransacked my apartment...as they left I distinctly heard them say ..fuck off Borty...its the last time I get involved in drama around here....

You are right about Benny, he didn't leave because of the fuckwits. He left because he felt he had hurt people whom he actually cares very deeply for. What he doesn't remember is that he said the very same things to the people he was talking about.. to their faces.

I'm angry enough to bite nails right now.. but you know what? After today, with a broke narrow bigot, I will fight no more .. forever.

Fortunately, or unfortunately, we all chose to join this site. We all choose whether or not to participate. And, ultimately, we all choose whether to stay or whether to leave.

I can only speak for myself - but, at least for the time being, I choose to totally ignore those kinds of comments that run other people down, the shittery as you so eloquently put it, and retain my membership on this site. I guess we are all entitled to our opinions and my opinion of these shittery commentators is that they are not worth my time, my energy, or the disruption of my emotions. And, when and if I ultimately choose to leave this site, it will NOT be because someone has said unkind or untrue thing about me. Those types of comments rate lower than the dog poop in the back yard and i refuse to let them bother me. If and when I leave, it will be because my interests have changed and/or I have found something better with which to spend my time.

In the meanwhile, I know who I am. I am happy with who I am. And that is all that happens to be important to me!

Thanks for your blog! Well done!

I am only going to say that in a couple of emails from Ben, I understand why he felt he needed to leave..........I have hopes that he will read the blogs and comments and realize that what happened happened and life goes on. I agree we have all said things we later regretted, and may or may not have even meant at the time.......but in anger things were said that probably if we could take them back we would...........I think once Ben realizes that friendship doesnt end just because someone said something............he will get in contact with us..........right now he feels like he hasnt been a very good friend to some of us.........and in my case no matter what he said in an email to someone else..........and even when we werent talking...........I thought the world of him and still do.

This reminds me of a movie I saw once called "Nurse Betty"

A wonderful movie that had a lot of important messages about life...if you paid attention.....
