Hoft, Mr. Shoe posted a thread at sb informing us that Shoe was brought to the hospital last Sunday with phnemonia. In intensive care four days, she now faces rehab. How long it lasts, they don't know. Today she asked that Mr Shoe say hello to everyone and Happy Valentine's day.

You'll find the new Showshaper thread "mortality" in the 'Gab Room" forum at sb. <The first "shoesharper" thread located "in the news" category at the forum>

Happy Valentines Day!

Thanks Teeny, saw the post from Olen. Glad he received word, <probably from a pm sent by Mr. Shoe> Hope she returns soon - she'll be happy seeing you've registered at sb also. Smile

What is with Marbug?!! Didn't care much for his rants, but when he began the 'kill all americans' thingy - that was way beyond the pale, imo. He's a dark sorta guy, although I hadn't read many of his postings at aimoo, or abuzz. I got upset, the george/god wallpaper went up, and marbug vanished from the scene.

Did you have words with him at aimoo too?

He's not there as far as I know and hope I don't find him! Drunk

I am in PUP 331, 300, 299, etc. I am in A2K, and SeattleBuzz, too.
I saw his posts. He doesn't bother me and I don't bother him. What's your concern over Marburg and ME? Why would the hamsters, as you call them get upset? What gives? If I knew how to post a link, I'd invite them all. It's up to them to click in or not! Can't you include a link in posts here? Is A2K a private club?

Teeny, when you post a message at a2k - the page that lets you know the posting was entered is where the 'hamsters' live. Read the page next posting.

marbug doesn't bother me either. Was asking because you said you had run-in with him is all.

a2k doesn't allow a link from another forum site such as sb or aimoo. Don't ask me why - that's the way it is.

I'll post the link to aimoo and see what happens.

You may recall that when this forum was started, a couple of Abuzzers - two in particular who post at westcoastBuzz - complained bitterly that this forum would lead to the end of Abuzz. Abuzz died for its own reasons, but in the meantime, links between Abuzz, westcoastBuzz, Buzzards and this forum were disabled by the designers here. They did what they could to minimize the reasons for the fussing, but I guess it's not always possible to please people.

Stradee:
I did have a run in with him over using an expletive. He called the Iraquis "Sand N-word". I had heard it before during Gulf War 1. He also called Mexicans "wet backs". God I hate that word. The Mexicans have been here as long as Native Americans. Our side of the Rio Grande is America or better, the US. While he wasn't talkng to me specifically, I took it as a slap in my face, because I am Black and was raised right where he is, in New Orleans, during the 50's when everything was separate and unequal. No matter how old I get, I'll be sensitive to that word. He left the threads or wasn't posting, now, he's back and you can't shut him up! In the sb threads, some posters call A 2 K, the snob forum. I needn't have to say who said that. Mystery meat! I was lectured to by a poster that there are no bigots in Aimoo. Okay! Sounded like one to me! end of story. I was trying to avoid any dealing with this person but he's plugging away over in Aimoo. Every other post I type, he's there. As long as he leaves the racial epithets out, I'll be okay. Thanks for caring,
Teeny Cool

Teeny I remember that day attempting to ignore the racial slurs and rantings of marbug. Lets just say he has a "special' way of expressing his 'feelings' about America.

jeese, nasty guy...

The statement made there are no bigots in the aimoo threads got to me. It was a private email and I'm telling you, I was surprised at who sent it. The person is either very naive or ignoring that we ALL have some predjudices whether they be people, food dislikes, places they'd never go, racial groups, built-in assumptions or whatever. You may like seafood but I prefer meat dishes, get it? It's there! I'm a scotch drinker but I know lots of people who prefer beer! See what I mean? You don't however, have to let your slip show, if you get my drift. I wouldn't call any racial group a racial slur because as de-sensitized as some of us are, it's just not right! I've worked with just about every nationality in the world due to my employment in a think tank, similar to MIT. I was utterly fascinated at the assumptions THEY had of US! Picture that! They think Americans in general are rich! Think we are big-headed, have greater expectations, assume we are the BEST and not racially, that we have a superiority complex and that everyone else should be like US! Then you have natives, depending on which region you hail from, who are predesposed to thinking like our friend, which is wrong! It's not okay to label any race or religious group, but this country does a poor job advocating this. They say one thing, then practice another, oh well, time to click!

You got it, teeny. Stereotypes, just plain ignorance, lazy thinking, hypocracy, and lots of other things; exist all over the place.

Come join us on the current thread, #56.
