The Let's Pile on GoRight Diary!
OK. So there has been a lot of blustery talk about how I am a problem for the site. I want people to post here and give me their honest assessment. Has my recent behavior or my behavior overall been a problem? Am I driving people away as BR claims? Do I truly provide no value here?
I will admit that I have been too busy to post diaries and therefore lack substance in that venue, but I regularly bring new topics to the open threads for discussion. Yes, I have been using my pointy stick to poke at Obama. Last I heard Obama is not immune from attack here. Other posters are supposed to be. And there is one poster here that consistently and flagrantly ignores that fact and not only against myself. I have consistently stated that I will fight fire with fire, and that applies to personal attacks from other posters on this site. If you can't take the heat, don't attack me.
However, while I may look like a 6 year old sometimes based on my posts I am an adult. I assume we are all adults. I assume we can all act like adults when we need to. So fine, here's your chance to show it. I invite, no, I specifically request that everyone provide me someconstructive feedback. BR might as well stay out of this because I will ignore him in this thread. Tlaloc is more than welcome to chime in although I suspect that he won't.
What I want to hear is:
(1) do you think I am more of the "problem" (whatever that is) than anyone else here?
(2) would you prefer for me to simply leave?
(3) what, if anything, do you think I bring to the site in terms of value?
(4) what, if anything, am I doing that you feel is significantly detrimental to the site?
(5) what, in your opinion, would you like to see me change to improve things here?
(6) any other comments that might come to mind.
I ask you to be brutally honest, but please try to be an adult in this case. I am giving a free pass to anyone that posts here in terms of my holding a grudge or whatever. There shall be no reprisals or hard feelings on my part toward anyone who participates.
You all seem to be hungering for some serious discussion, well here's a serious topic. If you give me honest and forthright feedback I will give you honest and forthright responses.
I am absolutely serious about this, so please have at it. I am mature and objective enough to accept constructive criticism, especially when I am directly asking for it.
Oh, and if you want to say something nice about me that is OK too! :) (But don't feel obligated to do so.)
And this is NOT a goodbye cruel world diary. The only way it would become that is if the vast majority of responses here were essentially saying, <cue music> Hit the road, Jack, and don't you come back no more, no more, no more, no more ...
