Colorado shooting
« on: July 21, 2012, 08:24:35 AM »
Lets keep all those folks, family, and their friends in our thoughts.  I'm not a religious person by no means, but this is so horrible.  Imagine going to a movie, like all of us do,  and have this take place.  Its really nothing you ever think about when going to see a movie.

Whats wrong with the world these days.  I hate to say it, but i'm so glad i don't have kids, i would never let them leave my sight.

i've been to this theatre before, my cousin lived in Aurora for some time, so this kinda brings it home a bit.  it takes one person to ruin things for everyone else.  Now going to the theatre is going to be like going to a prison.  They are not allowing costumes of any sort in most theatres here in dallas.  The police are all over the theatres, at least this weekend anyways.

you know it never ceases to amaze me how 'less' supportive this site can be at times.  I see folks add topics and very seldom does anyone offer any suggestion to their issue or say anything in general.  Maybe this is just me and i'm overly sensitive type of guy

There are a select few guys on here, and you know who you are, that always at least say 'i'm sorry you are going thru this eventhough i dont have an answer for it'. it seems that unless the topic include some type of sexual nature, ass, dick, STD, then noone responds.  its like that old say, if it doesn't affect me then I have nothing to say about it.

Anyways i won't dwell on this, its just this site is supposed to be supportive, but it only seems a select few get support on here.  I was going to go to this forum gathering, but i cancelled it s couple days ago.  I certainly dont feel like part of the group if you will.

Most folks that add a topic to these forums aren't doing it because they are bored, they usually would like some type of response no matter what that may be.

Mike, I think that there's already a topic on the Aurora shootings in progress and perhaps that is why there hasn't been a post here.

Did it not ever occur to you, Mr. OP, that maybe - just maybe - people are a little overwhelmed and dumbstruck by this whole tragic situation and can't think of anything to say?

And for that matter....way to go.  Way to make this whole event all about YOU and how terrible you're going to feel if you ever go back this theatre.  Why, you may not even be able to finish one box of Snowcaps, ya poor thing.  Come to think of it, I'm sorry I didn't respond sooner.  Where was my head?

I think something else might be up with mikeyb39 because I doubt he could find a single person on the list of people going to AMG that has been the least bit rude to him . It doesn't add up and I sincerely doubt he ever booked the trip anyway now after reading his post . His name never made it on the arrivals or departure list , go figure .

Hi Mikey,

As Miss P posted, there is another thread that was started about this tragedy. http://forums.poz.com/index.php?topic=44445.msg546917#msg546917

It seems that not getting a response within an hour of your posting at 6:30 in the morning on a Sunday has upset you. Give people some slack--most people are in bed at that hour.

And if you just cancelled from the gathering a couple of days ago then your name would have been on the list as you're noting you live in Texas. How would you have traveled affordably on super-short notice?

So, as jg suggests, is there something else going on at your keyboard? People not posting within a certain period of time doesn't mean that the whole lot or a sect of people you're counting on to post here aren't supportive.

If there's one thing this forum reinforces it's that you cannot predict what will happen if you type something and post it unless you post in Am I? and that guarantees you a supportive reply.

Although you didn't use the word 'rude' it's sort of implied because you said to the group that's going that you don't feel a part of them (or us) and cancelled. Perhaps the word 'snubbed' might better match your feelings. Don't give one thread the power of a rope in your life.

Em

edited to add: I was writing while you posted your ability to fly free -- well that accounts for the non-inclusion on the list. You're a lucky man!!

denb , i said 'sexually' im usually not into black guys in a whole different topic.  some are not into skinny guys, fat guys, hairy guys, there's no difference , but thats beside the point of my reply.  i was just simply making a comment or observation.

Hey Mikey,

I saw this thread yesterday but didnt reply, not out of any animosty for you just because the gravity of the subject.

Is this more about your pther thread where you ask if you should skip taking your meds because of your neuropathy?  I read that one also.  That thread sounds like your having some difficulties still with your meds or neuropathy.  I hope it gets better. 

Ps. Just my opinion, dont skip your hiv meds, Try working some more with ur doc about the neuropathy.

Hey Mikey,

I'm deeply saddened by this Tragedy also. HLN has been running pics of the victims with their life stories and it moved me to tears. I just didnt reply earlier because my words would just seem miniscule in light of such a tragedy.

and of course you are always welcome in DC, if you should change your mind.

Hey Mikey, there are also a lot of underlying dynamics why people don't respond to these sorts of posts.  The debate about gun control and such will cause some of us to bow out to avoid arguing about our individual beliefs.

Also, a lot of us take a while to respond for a variety of reasons.  For example, I worked doubles both Saturday and Sunday.  Not much time for reading the forums.

I'm confused also why one post would dictate you change your plans to attend AMG?  If I canceled everytime someone here pissed me off, I'd be constantly on the phone changing my booking reservations. ;D

Take care and hope you change your mind about DC.
