Posted:Well I was wondering why alot of people dont like letting the rest of us know that they are online and more partiually on HOP. I just like knowing who is on especially if they are my friends. So why do you hide?

Posted:hmmmm, I started doing it cos I kinda liked the idea of floating into a conversation then floating away unnoticed.

Does it really bother people? If it does, I will stop.


It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.

What this calls for is a special mix of psychology and extreme violence...

Posted:To stop people knowing I'm here (say for instance I owe thgem a tattoo design or sumfink).

Although I had to stop hiding as my little napalm fairy complained she didn't know i was online one time cos I wasn't on HOP. Only I was.

Posted:Now you see me, now you don't. Actually, I remember why I did it at first. It was because there is no logout feature. So people tend to think I am here when I am not if I leave myself visable. And they get mad at me for ignoring them...

Ahhh well, heading off for early afternoon coffee in a moment. have fun kiddies!!

Posted:I've found that I'm quite the opposite. It's tough for me to listen to a conversation and not participate. Sometimes as a teaching exercise we will just watch others debate something from the outside just as observers (it's called a "fishbowl")... It's interesting but sometimes it drives me nuts.

Also, in classes, especially boring ones I NEED to participate. Otherwise I'll go crazy with boredom.

Then again, the extreme is those people who CONSTANTLY talk, utterly refusing to think "inside their head". Sometimes that can get disrespectfull too. Especially if it interrupts or discourages others from participating.

As a teacher I see all types. The kid who needs to talk to understand it, and the kid who's deathly afraid.

I usually will find the shyest kid and make them go to the front of the class and sing a song. Then I make the rest of the class point and laugh at them. Either that or the "let's all vote on who's the ugliest kid in the class" game...

Well, shall we go?

Posted:*shhhhhh, be vewy, vewy, quiet, I'm stalking C@ntus*

Actually, that whole deal only arose because I assumed we were having a long-distance relationship. Then it turned out that there was another little girl called Ros on the boards

BTW, NYC is the meanest cruelest teacher ever. If you are being bad in oneof his classes, he will confiscate a hair off your head (by plucking it off), and tell you to come and get it after class. If you are talking too much, he will draw a dot on the blackboard and tell you to stand with your nose on it, until he thinks your spirit is broken
