I suspect that what you are, when you post these things, is very drunk.

Here's a ProTip: Why not offer support, information, or encouragement to someone here or elsewhere? Why not take your narcissistic head out of your nether parts and give something back?

I shall continue to report each and every post like this. It does nothing for anyone, especially you.

"Many people, especially in the gay community, turn to oral sex as a safer alternative in the age of AIDS. And with HIV rates rising, people need to remember that oral sex is safer sex. It's a reasonable alternative."

Don't answer, your friends don't care and your enemies will not believe you.

that's awesome, Larry.
Working towards helping others is often also a very self-rewarding endeavour too. I hope you enjoy the experience and I also hope your event raises much-needed awareness and funds. ;)

That is the whole point! The kids just out of college only think of themselves. I just turned 62 and I think of others. The College grads only think of themselves and the gay ones are in the closet. The newbies to AidsMeds have put me down. They are all assholes, sorry, but you do not know me and you make many assumptions. I try to reach out everyday at work to straight, Bi and even homophobes. It's draining with my regular work that can result in hiring and layoffs. You do not know me and you are not the judge of me. If you think you are then you are and arshole.

Larry, I guess you didn't learn from your recent time out for name-calling, because I see you're at it again.

This time out will last for thirty days.

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts

what newbies were you even talking about? None have responded to you in this thread. Heck, I was trying (even though it seems you constantly berate us these days each time you post) to encourage and support you in your new endeavour - though it seems you just chose to ignore me and go off on a tear again.

I still hope your Aids Walk goes well, both in fund- and awareness-raising. I also hope that you'll understand that you're not hated here and seek to better interact with us when you return from your time-out.

I should have locked this thread. Mike, you should know by now that we do not appreciate it when people try to further engage with members who are currently timed out.
