People just take and take and take, but do they ever think about giving back?  The answer is a big NO.  Because they just don't care, I tell you, they just don't care.

Anyway, that's a good beginning.

Thanks for your input.

"It was pointed out to you on another thread."   To me ?   Humm...  How could that be ?

Well, if you would check the one other thread to which you've posted, you would have your answer.  Both VP & conjugate replied to you there.

In the future, please don't violate the terms of service and invest a little time in getting to know a virtual community before criticizing it.

@anisogamy.   I thought stalking others was forbidden in this forum. It seems like I am not the only one who did not read the terms of service.

Understanding fail. Your posts are connected to your username, and anyone who is logged in can read them. It's not stalking: it's doing research. Learn the difference.

Does anyone else think that emibla75's posts are possibly a ruse to post spam?  Emibla75 has five posts so far, either useless or incendiary.  The 'real' purpose might be to post that dissertation aggregation website the emibla75 put in another thread.

If I really wanted to spread spam, here's what I'd do.  Write four or five garbage posts or better ones that get a reaction so they are less likely to be deleted and thus claim legitimacy. After I do that, then I post the spam I really came here to spread - that link to the dissertation website.

This individual appears completely clueless about forum participation, yet emibla75 is sophisticated enough to use a "bit.ly" link to the dissertation aggregation site she promotes as very very good.  And her/his/its other posts are basically generic, let alone literate.

You are among the Pure and Truthful, however small their Number.
My goodness, that was an exceptionally good analysis of the forum.

My lilacs survived the late spring frost, but my azaleas were curtailed.  I regret the curtailment.

Wow, stalking requires so much less investment (of time and interest) than I would have assumed!

But the real question is how are your peonies coming along?

Thank you for asking.  They are coming along nicely--I didn't see any frost damage.  Peonies don't generally bloom until mid-to-late May here.
