A very interesting thread re 'missing people'
I'm pretty convinced that most have not strayed so very far away...but even then, so what ? I've noticed some harking back to the apparent 'good ole golden days' of PN - isn't it healthier to promote and develop the 'new' ? Make newcomers welcome by First Appearances - a re-think of the 'Welcome' message for starters...and a sense that they will not be ridiculed for trying out ideas 'new' to them, perhaps 'old hat' to others.
Back to topic...
( and copied from my 'Introduction' post today )As a result of technical 'relaunch' problems, it suited me to change my 'name' to marjoramblues
Previously known by some as 'mhoraine'...I took the opportunity of starting afresh - no particular 'friends' or 'foes' - just to see...but remained 'me' all the time...
Also, someone once said that they would recognise me anywhere by my syntax - is that even possible?
Twas interesting, but now glad to set things straight
PS Have to admit, I did appreciate AS for missing me, and felt a slight twinge of guilt, sorry 'bout that
- and yes, AS, you darn well know that you would be terribly missed
Hi M....I kinda had the feeling but I was trying to respect your privacy. Anyway, I don't know anything about 'syntax' but I do know you kinda gave me a hint before in this thread, i think, when you said something about coming back under another name. But really, you have a way of speaking that makes me think you are highly educated and perhaps maybe a writer...or famous in some cool way...like a cult fav or something...I would like to think you are a woman...and that you crack yourself up sometimes. To me you have the ability to soar where the wind takes you and can find a friend anywhere. I think of you like Mary Poppin's...not that I think you are a nanny or of the same temperament...but that you are most welcome where ever and whenever you should happen to land be it forum or real life home of the people you grace with your presence. No one feels abandoned by you...only happy to have had the pleasure to know you. What I want to know it there a secret evil side to you?
Sometimes I feel you hint around that there is....
LOL...my response above reminds me of the time we made silly guesses about other peoples personalities with Non Sum and what's his name...Pete? Philosophicalpete? and then that other chick with the airplane with Barbie...can't remember her name...and of course others. Do you remember that thread? It was hilarious.
