You've been guilty of thread hijacks yourself, so calm down.
Go dig up a thread for me where I totally hijacked it away from the OP's topic for more than 3 posts, some thing more substantial than just off-handed comments or responses to people in that thread, and then you can stand on your soap box about me hijacking threads. The hijack in this thread was a whole other thread for heaven's sake. And I wasn't the only one to notice and comment on that either.

I knew my little diatribe either might have ruffled up some feathers; but I am really surprised that a moderator is attacking me, when all I was trying to do was to get this thread back onto it's serious topic and send the other discussion back to it's original thread. Isn't that supposed to be your job?

Hope you had a happy birthday, Mike...  :-*
It's all a sham. Politics is a big game, same as the media - and same as religion. The point is to distract & control. If we're looking at what they tell us is the "big issue", we're not looking at what they are doing. In time, there will be different causes and different minorities to pick-on. All in the name of keeping the system going, and the people distracted.

hey guys, normally I'd say thanks and we'd go back to talking about the OT, but since I've made an issue about hijacking in this thread, please don't hijack this to wish me a Happy Bday. There's a March Birthday thread for that. ;) Thanks for your understanding in this matter. (and thanks for the bday wishes too!  ;D)

  Oh wow, didn't see all this happening. I wonder if I should go edit that post in Off Topic.  Shiznit, this is what I get for being an impulsive SOB.  All I know is it sucks being angry on your B-day Mikie...  All you people wishing Mikie happy B-day need to quit hijacking this thread.  We have a B-day thread for that kind of stuff...

  Since you guys are straying off topic can I say something to Lord in this thread?

  I was wondering if he could get me one of those cool helmets the emergency response team wears over there in Bangkok.

Wowee! You really are a jerk.  :D

I'm not angry (well, until now LOL) I, and others in this thread, just think it's appropriate to try to keep threads on topic. Are you advocating that anyone should just be able to post off-topic stuff anywhere? Are you advocating that it's "okay" for topics to leak out of their own threads and bleed into other threads with different topics? Really??

After caring for my first partner until he died, I was too damn close to death myself for many years and unable to volunteer. Then about the time my own health finally began to improve, I had to care for my second partner until he died. Then I lost my third home in three years (thanks to my aids-induced poverty), and had to move to a whole other state - where within 4 months I began to volunteer. So what the fuck did bragging about yourself mean to any of this discussion?  :P You certainly aren't helping anybody in SC get ADAP or HIV meds with your sassy comments here. Hopefully my phone calls to my state reps, along with the letters I already mailed, and the letters I stamped and mailed out from my ASO this morning will end up helping to keep my fellow HIV poz South Carolinians alive.

by the way it's  a 2-liter of Coke a day and I still weight 140lbs - only 5 lbs more than I did when I graduated ACK thirty years ago!. ;D (about 5'10'' and 140lbs I don't have much of an ass, much less a fat one LOL) Plus I turned 48 today ;D and have not been back in the hospital on my birthday, literally dying, in twelve years today. However just a year and 350 days ago today, was when we found out that Jim had non-hodgkins lymphoma and aids. Sadly I'm counting down to that grevious 2yr memorial date of Jim dying on May 1st.

by the way, I learned from the moderators in another thread that instead of calling YOU a jerk, it's entirely ok, as long as I don't call you a "breeder", that I can call you a "fucker".  ;) :D But I won't  ;) ROFLMAO

You're a clever little girl, adding the ol' double entendre to your repertoire of tired passive aggressive posting. Honey, quit trying to out-AIDS everybody. I was ten years into infection before you turned your first trick in some seedy truck stop restroom. My own tales of illness and death make yours look like a Sunday school picnic. I could easily point out the holes in your revisionist Aids history, but that would be callous and unseemly. Try channeling your anger into something a bit more positive and productive.

whatever. ::) you're quite a hateful bitter person, aren't you?. Are any of your posts ever kind? ever helpful? For the record I'm a man not a girl. I've never "tricked" in bookstores, bath houses, or truckstops. I've been widowed twice, how many of your companions have died? And I'm plenty positive and productive, unlike you with your hate and venom and hijacking in this thread.

It's really sad how this thread has gone from discussing a serious issue in SC to Dach's vitirol. but please, the rest of you, go back to talking about LordBerners, don't let Dach and I interrupt you. ;) I'm really not trying to "out Aids" anyone. I was trying to get things stirred up and this thread back on track about the ADAP/medicaid cuts happening in my new home state. But since even the moderators don't seem to care that one thread has spilled into another, I'm just going to drop this and go do my part at the rally Wed.

I sure hope people don't die in the states where y'all live when the ADAP or medicaid cuts come to your town cause it looks like on that kind of issue the support you get from people here will get drowned out by other topics or hateful chatter.

I was just about to lock this thread and say you both need to cut out this junk when I see Tim had already put a stop to the nonsense.

How about you guys just avoid any exchanges in the future if you can't keep them being snarky. That's a very strong request.
