emoticon I'm glad we get to change, grow emotionally/spiritually, and become better humans. I have a quote in my fridge which I like very much that says:

"I'm not what I have done,
I'm what I have overcome."

That being said, Diane, too much of a coincidence, huh?! emoticon

Pat and Gracie,, the unanswered emails can be a frustration, but than I look at how many do answer,, and awwww it's sooo neat!!!

I've not heard back from Sewater.

Ok,,,, story time!! (LOL GROAN!)

I wasn't ALWAYS a nice person. In the 7th grade we had a kid named John Seaman. Well he lived on the island and got to have early dismissal in order to catch the bus to get to the ferry on time (In city school). I asked him "Why can't you take a different boat? A later one?" and he was dumb enough to be SNOOTY to me.

Well that DID IT!!

It's easy to see SEAMAN who lived on the SEA and well Pat you may remember and Gracie maybe you remember Sea Monkies? SO he became SEAMONKEY and was never again all the way thru HS he was known as SEAMONKEY and not in a nice way.

So when I see Sewater,, well LOLOLOLOL

Yup wasn't always nice.

Gracie, emoticon my venting out is usually concerning former oldies members that never, ever, answer back (like a thank you note in the team wall) even when is their capital a day, as in the 7 years I have with the team. It shouldn't bother though, just needed that yesterday, and since we have this private space.

Thanks for comments. I didn't think about someone joining and then not being active. I was just confused. I couldn't understand it. Actually before I joined SP I joined several weight loss groups through the years and didn't feel it was for me so did not participate and then would go back the next year and check it out just to use the calorie counter and exercise monitoring. It's so easy to forget!

I do think Cheryl is unsure of her computer skills. I didn't think she was faking that AND I'm not angry just baffled. However, I don't see how you can't navigate when you belong to a team. Basically all teams are set up the same with forums and chat rooms, etc.

As in the King and I - It is a puzzlement LOL Diane you should know that musical - not sure about the others.

Patricia - Sometimes people don't think or what is courtesy to one is not to another. I know going through my mail (I hate to delete anything so I leave it on unless it is superficial ) to delete it I think OMG I didn't answer that and it wasn't that I was ignoring it. If you have sent me mail and want an answer please let me know because I've done that.

I've been told with mail to look at it once and either do something about it or dispose of it. I'm thinking Fae is like that - right Fae? I just can't do that. At home for my mail at the house I have 3 bins - incoming, pending and outgoing. We are not all the same - doesn't that make life interesting and baffling at times????

Good point, Diane. emoticon It happens as you say. Thanks! I'm learning.

OK, now I want to vent out. What's with those new members who never answer the spark mails! Just saying. It's an act of courtesy to respond! And I'm sure they are receiving it. OK, that was it. Thanks, all.

HI !! Sometimes someone joins SPARKS but than goes inactive for an extensive period of time. SHAKERATTLEROLL is one of such.

How to tell: Look thru their comments on their page. Many times we'll see the ones who I call "SPAMMERS" (LOL yeah MY attitude showing??? LOL) they post to ANYONE AND EVERYONE ,, guess it's a feel good thing? (AGAIN MY ATTITUDE IS showing! )

Under each comment on our pages,,, it says how many days ago. Looking over Cheryl's page for instance, looks like she comes on,,,, joins MANY teams and hits a LOT of pages as "friends" but looking thru her comments, she IS scared ,, though from her joining, coming back, not staying,,, coming back,,, she wants this, but indeed she's so unassure of her skills on the computer etc.

Another way to tell,,,, LOL MaryAnn taught me well! (Maryanngi CL Dawggies) to also check their GOODIE Page. There is a member of the Dawggie team, who I had kept in contact with, her life is sad, very sad. But I had NO CLUE that she was just copying and pasting the same email to MANY on Sparks, and on every team she belongs to. NOTHING wrong with these,,, until you realize she's wanting, needing the attention, but no matter what any of us say, do for her, she's not yet ready to do anything for herself. It's sad yes, but it happens.
