dude, take something to relax, soon. I never mentioned anything about 'mediocre minds', only 'mediocre posts'. I don't know any 'mediocre minds' on this forum at all, but have seen many mediocre posts.
For example, TurqB is by no means a dunce when it comes to his depth of thought on some subjects....be he has a lot of mediocre posts where he does nothing but rant about something (or someone) who is irritating him on FFL. That's my example of a mediocre post. Or in your case, ranting and refering to me as an idiot, another mediocre post. I've read a lot of your posts and know you have a lot better things to share than that. I remember there was a time when FFL first started, it was primarily about topics regarding spirituality, religion, and it's all the philisophical topics that I miss. In the last 2-3 years, maybe even longer, it has become a soap opera. In every soap opera, you've got your romances (bonds between specific posters), you have your villian (TurqB), and you've got several other posters who seem to come off as positive or negative, depending on everyone's perception. As a result, we have a lot of dull episodes that drag on, in which case I tend to stop participating. Then something that looks deep or thoughtful comes along (or just something that resonates with me), and I like to throw in a sentance or two that results in several responses. I'm not irritated by it, I just recognize it for what it is. Not every class at MIU/MUM was the greatest, but there were pearls of wisdom often enough. Not every moment with my wife, nor every workout at the gym is awesome....but i'll always stick with it. So if you took insult....relax. It's just another lifetime. seekliberation --- In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, Ravi Chivukula <chivukula.ravi@...> wrote: > > Oh seeklib - you are a fucking saint dude - where the fuck have you have been > while we mediocre minds were going batshit crazy.
