Apology/ PSA

Wed Mar 23, 2022 2:53 pm
"This is the best website for people with an Ostomy, hands down. So much understanding. Everyone should join."

Hi Friends,

     SallyNBC and I got to talking, and realized sometimes our banter gets a bit carried away. We’d like to apologize for all of the threads we’ve monopolized. Our intent was never malicious, and we hope you can forgive us. We will try to be more cautious in the future. We do love to laugh with y’all, but there’s a time and place for everything. 

❤️Rae, and Sally. (Cough *Eamon, and Alex*) 😂

I’m guilty of this myself, so sorry if I’ve offended anyone. 
I’ll do better!

Thank you for putting this apology together Rae. ❤️ 

I second everything Rae said here. So sorry. Hope we all can keep on laughing. It's good medicine. 😊

OMG, you guys have nothing to apologize for!  I don't think you have monopolized any thread, and you certainly have not offended me!! Your banter is always light-hearted and well meaning.  If someone doesn't want to read all of it, well, that's what the little scrolling thingy on your mouse is for!!  I don't think you should change a thing!

Cheers,

Terry

      Thank you Terry! I love it, but we wanted to make sure we were respectful to everyone’s use of the forum. I’m glad it makes you happy too! ❤️

But everyone loves my posts. 😝 🥴 😁 I can derail(get it, railroad talk) a thread in a couple of sentences. Did we ever figure out the chicken thing? 🐔

     I do love your posts, and your ability to “derail” a conversation. 😂 I’m also pretty sure you were the only lost one concerning “chickengate”.

I like the fact that the site has become more social and doesn't feel constrained to be limited to strictly ostomy-only topics.  When I first joined, I felt like I was pushing the envelope just to post something that didn't have the word 'ostomy' in it.  Keep it up, kids.

Thank you Delgrl ...!I would hear wrose from 80 year old Dear Ladies  on the streets , especially Dublin !!  Anyone easily offended will  need War Plugs !!!  

     Are we or are we Not Adults  here  ??!!   I guess not . At least there are a few of us . Nobody used offensive language etc ..  Actually it felt like we were just sitting around a fire pit roasting marsh mallows  !!!  

    Any  "Taliban"  fans out there , you know , book burners ,  cane wielding  mind-changing specialists  ,  can kiss my Irish Butt 💚🤪.

    Turn the page if unsatisfied ...Please .

   There is a little message pad at the bottom ...this is for all comments , good and bad . So who doesn't like to see people having a good laugh and being silly  ?  That comment  space is for you  ☘☘🏖

   Reminds me  of one lady wrote here a while ago saying the pics of Beautiful Women  in a bikini and sporting an Ostomy were disgusting and should not be allowed !!??   Saying it was horrible and undignified  to expose your disgusting defect in public . ( Paraphrase). People who don't like themselves need some help in becoming their own best friend and understand yourself and your motivations  in criticizing a bit of fun banter between people who have come to know as driends . 

Have a nice  time  in pursuing  the Sterile life , untouched and unoffended  by fellow humans .

Stay healthy ??  Eamon  ☘☘

Eamon, 

     I hope never got be on your bad side. 😂 Whereas I agree with you, old friends sitting around the fire, I also don’t want to be a bully. I just want everyone to join the “cool kids” club. 😎

Well if we were all sitting at a table together would we stick to one topic only?  Good grief I hope not. We’d be blessed to have an easily derailable group together that would welcome anyone, everyone, any topic, to the table. 

So I’ve never seen anything going on that requires an apology. You ladies are always helpful and engaging and we’d not get by without your wisdom and your social skills and humor

Who, why, what now?!  What did I miss out on overnight (these time zones are a bugger in being left out of the loop even though we are a day ahead of y'all!)?

What has actually been said that requires an apology, what, an apology for making us laugh too much?!

I leave and return to this site on a regular basis and the recent hilarity over the past few months is the reason I returned to the fold.  

Please continue as you were!

Hi Rae , that's the last thing I wanted , I hope I didn't come off as a bully !!!?? . I met my share of Bullies in the form of Priests , Christian Brothers and Nuns , humliliation and  bullying was their specialty .  Suggestion that we adjust our conversation  and topics or even apoligize   to suit our ( by choice !! ) other participants is  excessive unless our exchanges are obscene or intolerant in some way . We Irish can be a bit straightforward  and not  afraid to express and stand by an opinion . When I write seriously I choose my words carefully to express my thoughts as clearly as possible . ( Living with a Lawyer for many years  will do that ! ) . I thought I was polite but firm but not rude or abusive in any way  IMHO  🙂. Intolerance by purportedly religious people  is the worst kind of intolerance .

     I have a relative who Loves Trump whereas I  detest the Insect  !!  When I go visit  I avoid the topic because   I knew it would not be  a productive conversation  and I respect the fact that I'm in his house . 

    If I'm with a group of friends having a chat and the neighbor is listening over the fence . 

" Do you think you could change the tone of your conversation   , I'm beginning to feel offended and I'm afraid I might be shocked  if I keep listening  ...I need a Safe Space ."   My suggestion would be to go back to watching the Soaps and not eavesdrop if you din't like what you hear and do not want to join in ..

  I dislike Fox News and their type of " news"  but I will listen sometimes just to get a handle on how other people use their form of  " logic " to justify the unjustiafiable  because I'm curious I'm curious about people who do not think as I think .

    To everyone , listen in , join in , share and add youŕ voice .  If our language or topics are inappropriate then the Moderator will do their job . 

All the best ang Slainte ..Eamon  ☘☘
