Where have they all gone?
« on: May 31, 2006, 07:46:43 PM »
No, I didn't ban them all.

Where have our WWs gone? I can't believe they've all suddenly gone shy on us!

What gives? Am I going to wake up in the morning to nine gazillion posts in the new AM I forum?

Please .... NOOOOOO!!!!

I think it may be the new name "Am i Infected' seems like a more scarey place to post then 'fears" altho it is more to the point it also sounds more like a commitment to the train of thought.I know i took a minute to rationalize my fear before posting.

Oh Ann,

Today may be a WW holiday?  Maybe Ann Landers told they they could get HIV in a swimming pool but not by a swimming pool?  Have the best day

LOL They're back alright! It was just spooky last night when everytime I clicked on Am I, I'd have to step out of the way of the tumbleweed rolling past. The wind was whistling through the place and everything - there was even this owl off in the distance going hoot-hooooot. Eerie.

I was starting to wonder if I blacked out and banned them all.  ::)

What, me? Blackout? As if! Well, ok, maybe once in a while. Shhhh.... you didn't hear that from me.

I suppose I should go and get some real work done. ~sigh~

They probable can't figure out how to post a reply or realize they must choose how long they want to stay logged on. I just tried to start a new topic but found out I only logged on for one hour after I hit post. Everything I typed went blank and I needed to log on a second time. What a pain. Also the perview doesn't work. Pain pain pain.

Ann, you asked them to read and apparently that threw them for a loop.  :D

Bill,

You have to scroll UP to see the preview.

Rodney,

OMG you're right! My bad! There's probably been a melt-down of a few brain cells overnight!

I was wondering if you'll have to re-ban all of the trolls and multiple account users all over again, since they now  seem to have a golden opportunity to enroll in the new forums.... Does the new software contain any enhanced Banning powers, like say, adding a swift kick in the arse? 
I like the newly updated lessons, hopefully it will cut down on the traffic over there, but it probablly wont.
Has anyone ever considered adding a section to the Lessons on Hypochondria or similar mental issues? it may be outside the scope of AIDSmeds, but it seems obvious that a number of posters in the Fears/AM I Infected forum have some serious issues.

Well,

It was a wonderful albeit far to brief respite from the "I touched a door knob am I infected with hiv?" crap!

Sigh!

Maybe they don't want to come to a place where they're referred to as WWs.

What the heck does "WW" stand for?
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.  Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.  It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.  We ask ourselves.."Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?  Actually, who are you not to be?"
