Why do you feel the need to single me out? I truly have not been able to figure that one out, as it happened quite suddenly, viciously and unexpectedly several months ago. I never knew then what caused it and for the past several months, I've done my best to let it be and not worry about it, but no matter what I have done here -- I've written comments and posts just as others -- yet you shout out my name PAT PARKER (I always laugh at people who feel the need to type in caps -- I do get the point though, but it still makes me laugh), specifically having problems with anything I write. It really became a very sudden change in your mood toward me and anyone who has been here for the what?? whole 2 years that you've been here?? might even be able to notice it.
In your first rant above, where you call us stupid and crackbrained, you specificially directed us to not add to this thread. To write on other posts, to create our own other posts -- and although I've done that (for all the years I've been here), and have even posted positive things on this thread as much as possible, I still don't meet your standards, Karen. Why? What exactly did I do to you to cause you to hate me so very much that you spew so much anger toward me here -- in a place, a thread, that is meaningless and senseless really?
Truly, I wish you could look into yourself and figure out what exactly happened that made you turn so viciously towards me. It happened @ May-June, 2012 -- that's when I began to notice it, at least. Even if you will never explain it to me so that I can know exactly what happened, I do not see how your attacking me and my every word, writing, or post helps you at all. Why in the world would you take so much of your valuable precious time to come here to the moon, specifically seek out what I write, comment on it in the most derogatory way you can manage? Seriously, why are you even interested in what I write? Even if you see my posts, you can ignore them, or can't you?
Of course you're not defending Cyn -- you just have your hard on for me, so this was a great place to let it all hang out. Of course you're on no one else's side, it's only me, PAT PARKER, who you seem to be obsessed with. And I'm sure your discussions with many people makes it all 100% accurate, yeah? You can write anything you want, use all the rude words you want, but it's still cyber bullying and that's just wrong, regardless of whom it's directed. I'd recommend that you forget about me, Karen, just don't read what I write here.
As it was, a few months ago, you, Karen, bullied me here, along with a few others who were able to hide behind your words. I left then because I just didn't have the energy nor reason to stay here. There are barely any people with whom I communicate here and I'm able to do that elsewhere, so I left this place to you. I have only recently started checking back in and I've often done this over the many, many years that I've been on the forums. It's nice to take a break now and then from it and then come back and read some new people, have some nice chats. However, when I left last, it was because of you and a few others. I didn't leave because I was afraid of you or others, but simply because none of it was worth being harassed. At that time, nearly everything I wrote, you had something nasty to say -- it got nastier each time. I thought time would let it pass. Apparently, you've a one-track mind and are still set on keeping me out of here. Give it up, Karen. I'm not leaving.
Karen, I will continue to keep the good memories I have of you. I don't ever expect to understand what caused you to be so angry with me, but I also don't expect you to continue this with me. Just stop it. When you see my name in a post, skip it. If you see a thread created by me, skip it. It's really simple. No need to be so focused on someone you hate so much.
Kind regards to all.
I will agree on one thing here - enough with this thread.
I should know well enough from the past that the creator of this thread will just go on and on and on like the energizer bunny so it's just best to ignore her (at least for me)
But seriously - a lot of people will return to the moon when PG does.
They left long before this thread because it had gotten boring and when he's back and touring again they will return.
I do not think this site will ever be as fun as it used to be but that does not have anything to do with the FMC members.
It has to do with how this site has become more about making money and marketing and social media - nothing wrong with that on PG's end he has every right to try to market himself as he sees fit but it really took the charm out of this place - IMO
How do people become *addicted* to negativity ? Washing of the Water is just a song, I suppose
What is it about the energy of negative emotions that makes people persistently return to them?
It's ugly and it's petty and small-minded -- all of it, any of it.
You do all realize--you are dying. You are going to die. Do you really want to spend one more second of this inestimably precious life nursing all of these old wounds. This thread started with the most absurd wasteful use of randomized "head energy" -- the little formatory apparatus of offal production -- rumor, scandal, gossip -- mix in a little sex energy... and whoola...ya got yer lunatic hysteria in living color on a wide black screen.
And, ladies, it is hysterical and pointless. But the bigger question you should ALL ask yourselves....
"What in me feels the need to give in to the negative emotion....what jolt do I get out of this? -- "
Now I am going away, and we shall speak of this no more.
Unless you really must carry on, in which case, rinse and repeat this post. Or maybe find a post to rub up some endorphins. I hear they're good for ya.

The Lighter Side
by Jeannie Strebel
Look to the lighter side...
When life weighs you down...
Look for the smiles...
Do not focus on frowns.
Look at the Miracles that always surround...
Not the disasters that can surely be found.
Count all the Blessings you have had on the way...
Not the hardships and disappointments
which will cloud any day.
Celebrate your survival...
Through all of life's trials...
Know you will get through...
You will again smile!
Rain never lasts...
The sun does again shine...
When we look to the rainbow...
We know it's Divine!
I hear you James
It is really easy to get caught up in the mire.
Thanks for the gentle reminder

Kiss The Earth is lovely happiness poem that is as simple in verse as it is deeply meaningful. If you want to know how to find happiness, follow this advice... be at peace, choose to feel joy, express love and gratitude for every one and every thing... and then you will feel happy, safe and content with life.
Kiss The Earth
by Thich Nhat Hanh
Walk and touch peace every moment.
Walk and touch happiness every moment.
Each step brings a fresh breeze.
Each step makes a flower bloom.
Kiss the Earth with your feet.
Bring the Earth your love and happiness.
The Earth will be safe
When we feel safe in ourselves.

HE BIDS HIS BELOVED BE AT PEACE
by: William Butler Yeats (1865-1939)
HEAR the Shadowy Horses, their long manes a-shake,
Their hoofs heavy with tumult, their eyes glimmering white;
The North unfolds above them clinging, creeping night,
The East her hidden joy before the morning break,
The West weeps in pale dew and sighs passing away,
The South is pouring down roses of crimson fire:
O vanity of Sleep, Hope, Dream, endless Desire,
The Horses of Disaster plunge in the heavy clay:
Beloved, let your eyes half close, and your heart beat
Over my heart, and your hair fall over my breast,
Drowning love's lonely hour in deep twilight of rest,
And hiding their tossing manes and their tumultuous feet.

THE SECOND COMING
by: W. B. Yeats (1865-1939)
Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: somewhere in the sands of the desert
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.
The darkness drops again; but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

I was online reading here the day this topic was first posted, and I found it... interesting! Who Peter dated (or not, since some seemed incorrect) is not a defamation of character topic to me. IMO.
How this thread then degenerated seems to point out a couple of things:
1. If someone popular on the moon or "well-known" brings up a topic, people often say it's interesting or cute or whatever.
2. If someone less popular on the moon or less well known here brings up a topic, it can be flamed or otherwise criticized more robustly. Or ignored.
I bring up lots of much more controversial topics about PG when I'm at home, with friends or family, and the discussion never disintegrates. We end up having an interesting conversation about it. I would be scared to death to bring up the same topics here. For one thing, it's public. But that's not the main reason - I fear the "falling apart" which seems to happen so easily.
Can't reading posts simply be more like channel surfing - if you're really not interested in something, just change the channel, vow to keep changing the channel, and don't have a fit about it.

Mister Miniver I ... please do not call the ladies hysterical in here.
I think that's a bit old-fashioned. If I may say so..

And for now I will not come to this thread again ...

Q: Why did the chicken cross the road? A: Because no one had fenced it in.

No longer chickens, but stuck in our appearances never-the-less.
