Apparently my comment on 1stimestar's roller derby picture was considered trolling? It was in reference to knee pads considered too small and my reply was simply disbelief that they needed to be BIGGER? The "look out boys" reference had to do with roller derby being a tough girl sport that I don't see boys involved in, so what the heck is wrong with that? and what does it have to do with trolling? Good grief.

This will be considered off-topic. It should be on one of the administrative or "house-keeping" type boards.

Speaking of being off topic... Tidelines, are you the same on who comments on Tom Bott's excellent blog: Wilderness Blues- Ramblings from the Great Land

I think your comment was taken to be of sexual nature. Could be an honest mistake. (knee pads, girls, guys) Please don't ask me to explain further!

As I said, good grief; but I understand. It just was not intended that way.

Trolling is a dumb term.

It can be hard to portray emotion and proper use of wordage at times when writing.

I can see where a mom could misconstrue the comment now that you mention it. I don't usually have any problem communicating my intent and I didn't give a thought to that mindset when I said it, but c'est la vie - I wont' go THERE again!
