Reading many of the threads here leads me to question - do normal people post on forums?

Are forums a place that the normal, works 40 hour a week, married, 2.5 kids with a dog kind of people spend their time?

I've spent more time away from this forum than on it lately and I must say reading some of the crap people post on here makes me wonder exactly what type of people have time to come up with some of this stuff.

People need to spend more time helping people with real problems, hands on, get involved type of work instead of quarreling over many of the things posted here that are based on opinions, not facts, and posted by people that desire nothing more than to shame our country, our servicemen and women, and our religious practices.

Signing off for now and just possibly for good.

YES. Posting on forums is not unnatural. THERFORE NORMAL PEOPLE POST ON FORUMS. Actually, ELITE, INTELLECTUALLY SUPERIOR, INTERESTED AND INTERESTING PEOPLE POST TO FORUMS LIKE THIS ONE AND OTHER.

Do normal People work as Journaists? Or go to Church Saturdays and Wednesdays? Do normal people eat Wheaties?

OF COURSE NORMAL PEOPLE US FORUMS. You, are normal...me, I am not so sure about.

Wow! I must be further from normal than I thought. Sounds like a new topic to me. How about, "What Is Normal?"
As long as I have been here, I have seen an immense amount of intelligence, I have learned a lot, and I guess that I am a better person for taking away the knowledge that members here have shared...

Normal isn't exactly the normal it was 15 years ago, lol... and I guess this post can turn out to be a really good FUN post if we want it to... because another thing I have learned about the people here is that there is a lot of humor on here, lot of laughs... even 'dry' humor that cracks me up... (yeah, you know who you are)..

TWO POINT FIVE KIDS???? Oooops, I messed up and had THREE.. but nothing I can do about that now, since they are all grown!!! lol..

And drdemo has a good point to.... in this day and time ... WHAT IS NORMAL???? Normal has taken on so many faces during my life it is unreal... We get acclimated to 'certain' things, and next thing you know, IT IS NORMAL.. .. So I guess that is a great question for the year 2007... Wink

[Are forums a place that the normal, works 40 hour a week, married, 2.5 kids with a dog kind of people spend their time?]

But since we have been enlightened this morning,would somebody explain to me how you have a .5 kid?

YEAH!!!What he said! Maybe I need a "heavy wash" "rinse" and "high spin" to get back to normal! Hmmm........that leaves me wondering what temp and water level setting I should use.


And after going through all that you still have to decide if you want to drip dry or use the dryer. That leads to more decisions,
Being normal is too much work.
Who you calling normal? The voices in my head say that they resent being called normal. My dog just told me that he's normal, and will remain so if I will feed him steak and ground round from a golden bowl. WAIT, I got to put my tinfoil hat on.....that'll make me normal Eeker

Thanks for clearing that up, I thought I was going crazy! When in fact, I think I must have been tuned into the frequency at your house because I don't even have a dog.

I have had to start locking the doors though because the squirrels have been muttering something about eating my nuts. I think the birds must be cussing because everything they say keeps getting peeped out.

You are correct. I find it refreshing when someone posts their own thoughts and feelings, rather than cut and paste someone elses statements.

Yes, there are a lot of people who give honest consideration to topics on forums. But there are people who only want to stir up discord and create confusion on forums. They hide behind the anonymity of this type of forum, knowing that their true identity is secure. They surf various forums until they find one that they can "bait" with topics obviously intended to incite inflamed answers. I don't say they don't have a right to do so, just that they are a part of what other forum users have to endure. Forum owners do have a right to censure what is posted, and some do so more than others. Very few forum moderators will tolerate personal attacks, bad language or exposing the true identity of a poster.

I disagree strongly with this observation. Political hate speech is something that is judged by the person reading. No one has to tell me,nor did I have to be influenced by media to come to my opnion of GWB,,all it took was WATCHING ,LISTENING,and READING his political moves and beliefs. Now if I am on a thread on this forum and state my opnions of disgust for the man ,THAT OPNION IS ORIGINAL FOR ME,,it is MINE.
A wasteland? Sorry not everyone is living with a mindset of the 40s and 50s and think everything politicialns do is next in line to the very acts of God. Maybe had people had a different look at politicians way back then,versus believing everyword spoken things would be different now.
I have learned things on this forum. I have had some knowledge thrown on me by some of the posters.
Sorry this forum does not meet to your expectations of the Cleaver familys existence

but some of us like it!
