Ill chime in here...

I remember the shroomery being somewhat of a kinder place in the past. Weather or not this is pure nostalgia or the fact of the matter... im not entirely sure.

But really.... what the hell is going on, where did all the good people go?






I really don't think they've gone anywhere. It's a stressful time for a lot of people as of lately. It's the winter time also. Winter is always cold,dark and depressing. A lot of people seem to drag over their personal life emotions into this forum which is understandable. Life isn't easy for almost everyone lately. A lot of people are pissed off and stressed out. Me personally am just having ups and downs like usual.




I just wanted to echo this sentiment.  It seems as of late everyone is on edge and for most an internet forum is an easy release because they rarely deal with the repercussions of their actions.  Maybe if Geo and other shroomery staff start wielding the almighty banstick with both hands and wailing wantonly with it these people will learn that even in a semi-anonymous location they still have to think before they talk.

And the reason I'm pissed off is because in China there is no Christmas and my wife really does not get in the Christmas spirit, you know what I mean.

For example, she got upset and through a bunch of candy and a game she had got me for Christmas in the trash. Already wrapped and under the Christmas tree.

Now, that's just something you don't do, and since I knew she was bluffing, I called her on it by taking the wrapped game out of the trash, breaking it in my hands and dropping it back in.

After that, she said "Christmas is dead to me" and I put the tree in storage (just got it, wanted to have a real Christmas this year because the last two years I have been here I haven't had one).

So, Geokills, no offense, I'm just pissed the fuck off because I don't get Christmas again.

I'd hope that is the case.  It is my wholehearted opinion and genuine belief that people should [always] think before they speak.  We all have shitty times at various points throughout our lives, but that is no reason to drag other people down with us - how selfish is that?  There is something to be said for exercising a little self discipline and self control.  And as noted, there are outlets available for indiscriminate venting, it simply happens that the Pub is not one of them.

i know i may be part of the problem for i've received several warnings and been banned from the pub once before, thanks for not banning me and instead warning me; I think many of us are just mild aggressive posters but not as aggressive as to hang around the OTD forum.

The Smoke Lounge over at the Growery is kind of a Pub OTD lovechild/hybrid.

For those who are between the Pub and the OTD, I suggest heading over there.

I'd be there, but unfortunately I got a 14 year ban for posting some inappropriate pictures.

There is definitely something to be said for people who have self control.  But in the instant gratification society we live in people rarely think of the consequences for others and only for the direct and immediate impact to themselves.  Those people who don't act in such a way are the reason the shroomery is great.  We just seem to have had a couple of bad batches recently.  Maybe someone pissed in the gene pool in a certain time period? :smirk:

I saw the thread and decided not to post in it because this place has indeed started to turn into a place where private things are better left unsaid. It is a sad day to realize this. I remember being able to post really sensitive and private things here and get really honest heart felt answers from everyone. Im not saying everyone is like this, just alot of people that seem to have regestered in the last year or two. We used to be a nice close nit community, and now i feel like any idiot is in here posting because it is cool or something.





yeah it seems like the number of quality conversations has gone down and the number of pissing matches has gone waaaay up. some people are too eager to make themselves look badass and it deters others who might have something insightful or useful to say. some of us still try though :heart:

happy holidays geo, hope you get to your destination

in all honesty... that's your doing, you may not want to hear
it but the fact of the matter is you're bringing a western
tradition into an eastern home, I'm sure your wafe didnt just
get angry, she had to have had some reason, regardless of
what the fight was over it's up to you to be forgiving and
not show her you can be a bigger child than she can be

Well, I guess that The Shroomery is mirroring society a bit, with less caring for one another and more of that good ol' "F U" attitude that everyone seems to love carrying around.

Sign o' the times.
