OpposingOpposum replies on Oct 7, 2018:
Yes! I have started to become both more judgemental before any relationship starts and more careful of that tendancy while involved with someone. I think deciding what you can and can't live with at the outset and policing your thoughts and emotions when involved addresses these issues. I whipped through a handful of guys a while back. None of them had the sort of faults I can live with, so I walked away once I recognized that. There is often a demand for WHY one doesn't want to take a relationship farther. I think we should make more effort to say "this didn't work right and walking away now gives me more time to find a relationship that does work". Now that I've found someone I genuinely like I make efforts to reframe things that might have upset me in previous relationships and found that those things are petty and unimportant once I step back and get some perspective. Maintaining respect and appreciation of the qualities that drew you and your partner together helps a lot.
Good morning!

@Bierbasstard. No there were incidents which you and most other members are unaware of. The issues I mentioned came up in a certain group, the mods brought up the problem repeatedly and were ignored so they all resigned. When you "hire" someone to do a job then ignore their concerns because you don't fully understand the issue, those people quit. Because some people dont understand what was going on, they think it was some sort of conspiracy when it was actually just a bunch of people no longer wanting to be involved in a situation that could turn toxic.

There was/is quite a row over the Agnostic police (Individuals who have taken it upon themselves to decide who to block or throw off the site.) It finally got to me and I said something about it. It was taking the fun out of it. The aftermath has been very disturbing, but true colors emerged.

There has been a lot of friction lately. Almost every senate post has been full of angry members complaining about senate doing what it was meant to: monitor and discuss site issues. We've got some "crabs in a bucket" type folks who get angry at any discussion of goings on or potential rules. We've ...

@Our_existance dude. A lady spamming members with nude photos of herself and attempting to take advantage of older, vulnerable members IS a problem. It opens the site to potential legal action when/if said person starts scamming people for money as well as being creepy, sad and threatening member satisfaction. Having teens on here messaging adults and possibly being groomed for abuses has the same problems. What happens when a 17 yo sends an adult nude selfies? That adult could unwittingly be commiting child porn crimes.These are not personality conflicts. They are potentially big problems. I would rather not see AG become a hunting ground for various predatory types.

I paid that amount to client service (PC Technicians) techs over 20 years ago, and couldn't keep them more than six months due to the demand for IT in the Denver market. The retail/service market isn't that different around the country, and probably the only difference in pay is a slight ...

Unfortunately sharing expenses or working a second job are commonplace these days-overworked and underpaid. I had to rent out my home in order to keep living there. Not everyone can do it.

@McVinegar dude bro. There is a lovely middle ground between anarchy and fascism. Come join the reasonable folks who don't live in black and white or give up before starting anything because it's "pointless". It's q lot fucking nicer here than in "only extremes exist" world. No wonder you're so damn crabby, you've made yourself a world where only extremes are possible. Smh

@McVinegar that. Is .why. We're. Addressing. The. Issue. Shrugging and saying "well bad stuff happens" accomplishes fuck all. I assume Raven has brought this up so we can find some good ideas to address the potential pitfalls and maybe stop some bad things from happening while still welcoming and offering support and community to kids who may be looking for answers or support from us.
