I have had all i can take, yall. I had all the low-blows, the ugly trolls, ect. I just read Killfile's article, with video, of the latest tea-baggers ball, and I am completely...fed up. My comments on it, I have no doubt, will be deleted, and that i will be asked to leave anyway, so I choose to leave on my on.
The article was horrendous, and a couple of the comments just pissed me off, and I feel that to stick around and read all the crap that will be coming in the days, weeks, and months ahead...well, i don't need the stress that it has caused me. I am physically affected by such...there aren't words enough to express the level of disgust, and how it affects me physically and emotionally. I don't want to go, and I probably will be back, but right now I cannot take the incivility, the rancor, the toxic rhetoric that permeates my beloved Vineland.
I have been a member for just about three years, and I have witnessed a deterioration in the level of...decency, here. Damn it, people, this isn't some...place to just...be as big an ass-hole as you CAN be. There is, I'm sure plenty of places where all the pig-fuckers can go and...fuck pigs...and holler at passers-by, and be general as rude and uncouth as you feel. For the sake of Vineland, GO THERE, and darken these hallowed halls no more (yea, I know, but I couldn't resist...no, really)
If I could maybe understand why those of you who think it such great fun to be a sarcastic prick, maybe it wouldn't be so friggin' bad. But, that is where the rub..be, ain't it ??? Because, there isn't a reason for it. It just is, and it breeds, it grows, and then it destroys the thing it...sounds like a virus, a germ, and that boys and girls, is precisely what it is.
It is a disease and it is contagious. And yes, we all get bent, from time to time. But it is the professional pricks that do the damage, that cause the grief. And I have had all I can take...at least for the short term. I mean, things are only going to get uglier around here, politically speaking. I am a political...junky, and if i don't leave for awhile, i am going to let this rancor, from articles AND commentors to affect my...health !!!
I have made some really fine friends here, and I hpe to come back and be with yall. Each of you who I call friend, have given me a great deal. You have always been supportive, when i needed supporting, and have shared so very much. Yal keep Vineland going, and don't allow the cretins destroy a truly unique thing. Because it has meant a hell of a lot to me, and I have been proud of it, and each of you.
p.s. i will check in and see if anyone reads this (yall will..wont you???), and hope to talk to each of you...until then...
