Posted:So, I just recieved an answer to a PM from someone who was surprised to hear from me because he thought I did not like him. I know sometimes I come across hard or cold or strict, but I do care about the people on this board alot. THis particular person I like alot. I think he adds alot to the board and is very sweet. This is not the first time this type of misunderstanding has happened either. I thought Ray Phule, Arashi and Cantus couldn't stand me when each joined the board respectively. And sometimes, they were also under the impression I did not like them. Other times I just get to hear it from two conflicting parties.
Hmmmm...this is something of a testament to me at how easily tones and meanings can be bastardized by the anonymity of the net. However, in the end, is it really that important what a faceless person on the other end of a computer highway thinks of you? In some cases for me, yes, because you are a "family" of sorts, but I don't think my opinion should really impact anyone's life, not really. Herm. I don't know.*shrug*
For the record, there is no one on here that I dislike in any way, shape or form. SOme on here I don't know well enough to say I like either, but I am sure that will change with time. There was one person once whom I did not care for, but she is gone now, by her own choice, and this is a much more peaceful place without the death threats! And thusfar every person I have had the pleasure of talking with or meeting has been so warm and incredible, my life is far richer for sharing those experiences. I think this board is very inspiring, not only to my art but to me as a person and I am very thankful for it. Many of you I hope to meet in rl, and there are several I am sure I will never see but I still wish the best for. And if ever you think someone on here does not like you (especially if it is me) PLEASE do one of two things...use the PM ability to resolve the issue, or (the pessimistic version) move past it knowing that it is a person you will probably never meet. I just felt the need to say this.

Posted:It's always difficult to understand the jist of a conversation if there is no vocal tone or body language - well it is for me anyway.. If I ever feel abit funny about the way some of my posts are replied to - I re-read calmly and try to see what the other person is saying from their perspective.. but with out all the clues that come from voice and body I get paranoid sometimes..
But I know that everyone here treats others as they wish to be treated.. soo no problem- o
I honour you as an aspect of myself..

Posted:Don't really know what to say in this case because once again Pele has articulated everything I could possibly think of saying perfectly. So I'll just say I think this is a common problem and thank you for bringing it up.
I worship you, Pele!!!
