We are ON THE WEB! Some of this bunch of people know themselves from the last year, some from personal meetings.
But the high amount of us don't know each other.
I really may be a transexual Cocker spaniel for some people, for other people an ignorant man (for my english), for other ...better of what I really am.
And the same for August, she may be Ted, Dennis may be his wife, Drummer a fantasy name for a serial killer.
We have 2 ways to act here. Don't believe to all the things we hear, and try to act as Sherlock Holmes to discover the truth. NO! is a waste of time.
The 2nd way is to believe ALL WHAT THE PEOPLE SAY!
More pain? NO! Do you feel a stupid? NO, because if a thing become a fake... who cares? You have not sent money, you have not more CH, you have not lost your virginity!
I tried to be a buffoon many times here, to low the high level of 'tension'. Many people think I am really a stupid man? If yes, who cares?
The only thing I hate of all this, and let me say it roughly.... Is the effect on the newbies we can have. THIS is the unique risk we run.
And this is the thing to avoid at any level. We cannot miss ANY request of help, because this board is primarily for HELP. We old timers are sit around a table (and we can chat, say stupidities, talk about our private life but...) BUT if a newbie ENTER THE ROOM WE HAVE TO STAND UP AND HELP HIM! and stop any other activity!
OK I hope all this will be useful as a lesson for the next days
Ciao from your WOP
