Actually, I don't "need" to do anything there, Drac. But it is meant to look kitschy -- so very Baltimore. Glad that comes across. It's reminiscent of the house I grew up in which I find comforting and familiar.

And cranky, I'm going as Ed Hochuli -- a ridiculously tight referee shirt and whistle. Jonathan likes to play cowboy. :wink:


Look at the text you pasted. It's saying that you need to give us some kind of a response to our responses, not that you need to change the decor. (Perhaps you meant to paste something else).

When you ask for input and people see you are indeed responsive, we give you even MORE of the input you wanted from us. When you don't converse back, then it's a dead end.

Thank you for acknowledging that you received the input we gave you. As a courtesy, that's all that needed to happen.... :wink:

Well actually he doesn't "need" to post a response to what we think. He can if he wants but that is entirely up to him. Now I would suggest to you that you might consider how some of your posts, actually a lot of them, come across as being extremely rude. Case in point is you saying he needs to do....... If you want his feedback then ask. Other examples are your misognystic posts. So if you could think about how other might find them off-putting or even offensive then that would be greatly appreciated.

I don't mind if others find my points of view offensive, but I DO mind if I offend people personally. If something in my conduct toward anyone, on a personal level, seems out of line I will always address and/or correct it if it is brought to my attention.

foxyeyes:

My personal response to you is, you seem to get into more disputes with people, than the other Moderators, and it's always because you don't "like" something someone has said.

Isn't the role of a Moderator to be NEUTRAL ?


You were so anxious to tell me off, politely, for what you didn't like about me, that you jumped the gun. You didn't even wait to see what charmcitywops response was to my message.

When the last line thanks him for acknowledging our messages, followed by a wink...that's an attempt to bring "amicable" closure to a discussion and diffuse the tensions.

For all you know, his response could have been, "oh, okay, I see where you were coming from now, no worries".

But rather than wait for his reply to see if things were resolved or not, you took your own show on the road.

"Now I would suggest to you that you might consider how some of your posts, actually a lot of them, come across as being", emotional, retaliatory and personally motivated, rather than expressing the neutrality of the other Moderators.

Okay guys, as a moderator myself, let's please get back on track with the topic at hand which is how to De=gay your home. Dead horses and jokes are not part of this thread.

There is a Good Jokes thread under the Entertainment forum I believe.

I can proudly say there is not much to degay about my home. Well unless you consider a couple flower and plant arrangements that go with the decor. But no posters glorifying women or the male body. The only photos up are of me. The artwork is old world, somewhat timeless, harry potteresque, rugged and heavy. My silverware is the heaviest they make and is not ornate but also looks like it comes from another time. I am also a lousy housekeeper and organizer, so that definitely scores some 'not gay" points. I don't have any gay publications that I subscribe to or bring home. My place just looks like a bachelor pad, sans the Sports Illustrated and Car and Driver subscriptions.

I don't think antiques are gay. Most of them are handed down through the family and are part of your family history. They are definitely not gay but once you go to Antiques Roadshow and find out they are worth thousands of dollars, they definitely are not gay.

The thing about the flea market antique show crowd is how morbid it was to attend estates sales when the people showing up all knew the collector.

It's like the body isn't cold yet, and they are swooping in like vultures talking about how they always wanted this item or that item and fighting over stuff with other collectors who feel equally entitled.

Geez like why don't you stick an IV in the corpse and mainline it's remaining fluids while you're at it?

Fight to hoard stuff....die....other people fight to hoard the stuff....they die....other people fight to hoard the stuff....they die....other people fight to hoard the stuff....they die...

Are you one of those Royals who pry the Sceptor out of the dying monarch's hands before their last breath? Instead of "Father, oh Father", you say "die already and let go of my Crown!" :wink:

A cat is not a masculine pet.

Get an iguana or a tarrantula.

As a sometime owner of cats (although perhaps coinhabitant would be a better term) I resent that! :P

They are far lower maintenance than dogs, more responsive to the unadultered favortism one shower's on one's pets than iguanas, and far less likely to make one want to reach for a sledgehammer, axe, shotgun, or other tool of sensible home maintenance. :twisted:
