I went into my friends list (62 people) to see what folks are checking in. A lot of them appear to be either lurking and/or just checking their email to see if there is somebody writing to them that isn't a scammer or wanna fuck.

Within that, it indicates to me that several just check in hoping that there will be something interesting posted. Finding little, rather than be outspoken and put it out there, they speak through their roaring silence.

That's ONE way to keep the trolls at bay, I guess...

Between work and classes, I've been busy. Yes, I check in, and, I've thrown out a blog or two.

Thankfully work slows down a little next week and I can relax a little bit. And then it picks up again in a couple of weeks.

As to the issue of trolls, not worried about them, and don't care about them.

My only comment? I posted a blog I've been thinking about for some time.

I guess i resemble that remark. As i am one of those who reads a lot of the blogs on here but fail to leave comments even though i like the blog, or blogs. There is not a whole lot of blogging going on on AMD these days, and most of which are not worth the trouble to read them. I guess i do lurk as you call it, because i ussually sign in as invisible.
A lot of times i come on just to read and re-read some of my dad's stuff. Even though i have tons of his poetry and story's that he never put on here.I might add
that he seems to have picked his friends on his friends list quite wisely. As they seem to be the friendliest people on here. They also seem to be the best bloggers
with the most interesting blogs and the best sense of humor.
He did not get out much do to health issues, but it seems every time i talked to him on the phone. He would always bring up his friends on AMD. He said that most of them were the best friends he ever had, and they were a great sense of
joy to him in his last few months. For that i thank you all.
Good grief Charley Brown. I feel like i just wrote a blog. Sorry WoW. "lol "

Any way here's a green thing for you.

Sorry, but I'm going to put it honestly..

1. I've pissed off the small Conservative base here; so despite people not really agreeing with them, they do tolerate what they say because they're "nice guys". They're not as belligerent and as uncouth as me, so I get shafted audience participation-wise since most see me as this "jerk".

2. The troll scare: who can actually feel at ease to post material when you know one of them is still around in some form?

3. I have no inspiration. I mean, I did and I saved them in MSword but they will go unfinished because I don't have the motivation to write.

4. There feels like there's an air of general disinterest..or maybe its just me.

5. No one's here: not only speaking about men in my area, but people that made participation worth while have went their own ways and will not come back.

6. Seems like friends on here have gotten tired of my antics, so I've been left alone. Whatever.

I've found that many people on here have lost interest in panty research....

A break every now and then is sometimes a good thing. It works for me that way.

Too bad you didn't post anything interesting either...
