I do too piperspal (feel sorry for the mods) but then I also feel for people when they're losing their cool and feeling that things aren't going so well. I mean it's pretty sad if you come to a forum and some how manage to get into a nasty back and forth with someone in your leisure time. **shrug** Sometimes I think these things take on a life of their own.

your problem is that you are not a CDF addict yet. we have a remedy and plan for that condition. then you will no longer ask why those people dont get a life. people do virtual reality bek reality is not working out too well.

Oh also don't let the name HairyandScary fool you
I'm really more like a puppy dog
I was just teasin Hairy. Even little things like a person's user name can give people the wrong idea about someone, and I'm forever sticking my foot in my mouth and mixing up a person's gender.

When I saw your use name I immediately thought of those way cool Muppet monsters.

Anyway, it's all good. People will either sort themselves out or they won't. Feuding internet style is such a waste of precious energy in my opinion but then some people seem to thrive on it.
I just muddle along, sometimes I read things that I object to and I say so, usually with humour but even that can be misinterpreted sometimes and before you know it, you're right in the middle of a disagreement.
For the record though, I'm not one to hold grudges and I can't be bothered working myself up into a lather against someone personally either on the net or in real life. If we don't agree we just don't, doesn't mean I wish anyone ill will.

I think for me the election, economy,blah, blah, time of the month all add up to general crankiness, I get more comedy entertainment than grief from C-D. If the kitchen gets to hot I go to the pet forum, lots of cute and goofy pics.
