Yeah - we had few flame war periods - lost good people from the forum through them - they have been fairly rare all things considered.

the Cellar is home - it's where I always return to even if I have been away for a bit.


Oh and yeah : basic philosophy is don't be a dick. Or if you are being a dick, don't be a twat about it ...

Leaving the philosophy aside, US Dwellars have yet to arise from their slumbers.

We could engineer a UK takeover if we're quick.

you had *one* job monster, ONE job... and now, you have another. The pay sucks, the boss is mercurial, but hey, at least you get to work from home. wink wink nudge nudge my merry coworker.

That's all anyone can do.

Kinda interesting thread on the Cellar philosophy...A member directed me here and after a while I joined. The OP of this thread said "no nastiness etc" and I can't believe how awful rude and a lot of vulgarness a couple members directed toward me...Hard to believe what I read from a couple members..

And wonder are there any Women who are members....it seems to be a guys club as I see it so far. Thanks for any comments.

There are several regular posters who are women. You just haven't taken the time to get to know anyone here (yet?), so you haven't figured out who they are. Hint: you've already interacted with several, you just assumed wrongly that they were men.

You might also be interested to know that the core regulars here read pretty much every post on every thread, so we've all read a dozen or more times now about your age, your health problems, etc. Might be time to consider yourself fully introduced, and start to get to know others?

If you stick around and read for comprehension, the answers you look for will become clear.

I'm sorry you're offended. I've asked you some questions, but some of your (non) responses don't align with what I believe and feel is important. But the offense to be taken is mine--and I don't. You can be offended if you like, but it's a choice you will be making.

Side note--as a new member, your posts are kind of alllll over the place. "Replying" to someone's post from three years ago, makes it look like you're not paying attention, even if you are new. Stay if you like, go if you don't. Treat the people here like you would an interesting stranger in a coffee shop. And if you don't like that person, move to the other side of the coffee shop, there are people over there, too.
