    As the matter of fact, there are two registrations in the "Users Awaiting Email Confirmation" queue, but so long as they don't click the link in that registration confirmation email, we can't regard them as people who want to be members here.

    And for that matter, even if they do click the link, then that still doesn't mean that they'll ever come back. A lot of registrations — and this applies to just about every other forum on the internet as well — are actually drive-by registrations. People stumble upon our forum, then in an impulse decide to sign up, and then by the next day they've already long forgotten that they have, or why.

    The whole of society has already long been slipping into a kind of attention deficit disorder. Or maybe it's a collective affliction with Alzheimer's.

    Participation trophy social engineering does not promote follow-up.

    Maybe.
    I like that. A lot.

    However, with some optimism, forums do provide an opportunity for people to meet and make use of modern tech to speak with face and voice to have in depth, meaningful conversations that can lead to real world interactions with greater wisdom. Flailing about in the world is a problem in itself. One that is exploited by gooberments and their ilk. Coherence is the antidote to entropy.

    At night. In a foreign country. Because he's being a pissy bitch.

    Such is the way of things.

    I followed behind just enough to keep him in sight. He never looked back.

    The irony is he only hurts himself by acting this way.


    The toughest lesson I've had to learn in life is that there is one person, ultimately, who has my back. And that's me. The people who I should have been able to trust in life have all broken trust in a profound way: father, mother, brother, sister-in-law, husband.



    But not my son. He would never betray me. And ultimately, he matters most. He'll be around long after I'm gone. (hopefully)
    Sorry to hear this. Sorry that you endure watching him hurting.

    Dirtup, very simple, the old if only people knew, But as elsewhere, there is ones who changed sides, dirtup will eventually cause that, the dirt/dark/evil etc comes up, out, to clear.
