Yes it is Odd, like him, but nevertheless.

I already expressed my concern for this.

Well you two go right ahead and get your giggles where you can. Fact remains, I am a pitbull, and cowards do not bother me in the least...they are usually wearing yellow...and hiding in the shrubbery.

The fact that they used his real name also points to them doing at least a bit of research as well. That's better known as stalking, which is of questionable legality.

Well it isn't illegal to do research... it is questionable behavior though, and I have every faith the person was dealt with.

If you are tracking down somebody on the internet for questionable purposes, i.e. to attack them, then it becomes of questionable legality, Jay.

Well, attack is a strong word....I see what you mean though.


I sincerely hope Andem isn't affected by all this....

Why would andem be effected??? You actually believe that something so stupid and cowardly could effect him???????? The fact remains that anyone who tries to come here and use threats and intimidations because they don't like someone politics, is not welcome here. These are individuals that need to use some mental health programs.

"Why would andem be effected??? "

If he was truly trying to keep his identity hidden, that would affect him.

Oh for pete sakes, I am not going to continue with this nonsense. We know exactly why his name was put up there, its not rocket science. I will just guard this board like a pit bull...I gots a computer at work...I gots a computer at home...I gots a lap top..and now I shall get some wireless...So I can pretty much just continue on with my normal life...and guard my little piece of heaven here.

I will guard this forum through rain, snow, sleet and hail... no wait, that's the United States Postal Service, never mind.

(Hey Pea, I'm just teasing a bit, and from my reading of this thread it is quite clear that is all I Think Not and Jay are doing as well. A bit of humour in the works doesn't mean that people aren't acknowledging the problem for what it is.)

Sorry haggis, but I don't find it that funny, but than I have been privy to some of the tatics used by certain people. And of course Andem is very special to me and I don't like anyone trying to mess with him. But I will keep your advise in mind.

There haven't been too many famous quotes associated with the
post office. The most famous is the one chiseled in stone above
the entrance to the main post office in New York City: "Neither
snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers
from the swift completion of their appointed rounds."
Most people don't realize that the quote is 2,000 years old.
It comes from the Greek writer Herodotus, who mailed it in,
intending it for the entrance of the post office in ancient
Athens. But you know how the mail is...

No, no, I do understand that the situation has a serious side, of course it does, and already something has been done about it, as you say. Many situations aren't funny in themselves, but light jokes are made anyway (often n an attempt to defuse a tense situation) and no harm is meant at all.

PS ITN, thank you for the proper postie quote... I sure was woefully off in my recollection of it!

Bah I meant it as a joke and not to correct you, I've lost my sense of humor!!!! :P

Thanks haggis, and I will try to lighten up. As I said, Andem is a very special friend to me, and I will chomp down on anyone that tries to mess with my friends. A defect of character that I am not willing to give up.

Hmm, say... I have this neighbour who has been giving me nothing but trouble... 8-)

ITN, I liked getting the proper quote one way or another. There I was, searching online like crazy for the proper wording, couldn't find it, finally quoted from memory. Now will seek treatment for Alzheimers. 8-)

ITN ... Jay ... I agree there is a light side to everything and am generally first in line to laugh at my own expense or anyone else's. And a bit of humour goes a long, long way to diffusing problems.

There is a back story to this whole situation ... both Pea and I have known people who have been stalked and threatened, whose families have been stalked and threatened, all because of something said in a forum. That behaviour mystifies me, but it happens. thelib/gordo/jane was, from all appearances and comments, heading down that same crooked road. It got all of our backs up. Threatening Andem doesn't fly with any of us.

I've known Pea for years (in the real world) and know that anyone who attacks one of her friends is up for an *** whoopin with those little size four hiking boots. I used to call her the pitbull with lipstick -- for good reason. Usually quick to see the funny side of things, Pea has no sense of humour when it comes to defending her friends.

But if you know Pea, you would also know that she can get away with saying things nobody else can. In real life, she will ask the most outrageous questions of complete strangers (like asking the cross dresser in Thrifty's grocery store where he got his dress) and have the person laughing their butt off. She's got the mojo for that. People love her. Sometimes it doesn't come across as clearly at the board.

While there is no quarter for people playing the stalking game at this board, I do find your comments funny. Nice to see the two of you having a little fun ... you're often very serious in your posts so it's enjoyable to see you outside the political threads.

Anyway, go easy on Peapod. You may be the next one she defends like that!

Happily, Pea doesn't need to be defended in this thread since nobody has taken any pot shots at her.

Bite yer tongue Rev! We're in Lotus Land, Vancouver Island, home of the 12 month flower gardens, land of the nearly dead and newly-wed, bastion of dykes and other odd human folk. I figure there are only two parts to Canada: East of the Rockies (which I try to avoid because of the cold) and West of the Rockies (where I have finally landed). I'm as far West as I can get without getting my spike heels wet!

Prophylactic measures, Haggis. Our girl is riled up by that troll's bad behaviour and is not her usual happy self. Just passing that on to Jay and ITN so they don't get the wrong idea about Pea.

Nice to see you back, BTW.

Yup ... watch the big cruise ships come and go, the enormous cargo ships and, best of all, we look out over the 90 great blue heron nests in the park. They look like pterodactyls flying by ... we're on the 15th floor so we have a ... ahem ... bird's eye view.

Took Moche to the park yesterday ... there's one pond that is entirely covered with lily pads. Poor dog didn't realize they were plants and went running off across them. Didn't get far ... ended up totally submerged in a pool full of duck sh*t. Was good for a laugh for all who saw it ... but meant bath time when we got home!

We'll have to do a park picnic soon!
