I am not dead...

Discussion in 'UO Sonoma' started by Dor of Sonoma, Feb 17, 2002.

  1. ...but rather in some sort of Twilight Zone limbo at the moment.

    I have not posted for two reasons:

    Number One...I have honestly had no notion of what to say (or not say). Seriously.

    Number Two...okay, this one is admittedly silly, buuuut...I haven't been able to bring myself to post with that ignominious-as-hell "Grand Poobah" stupid title glued to my forehead. I know, I know, it's a dumb reason, but there you go. *wry grin*

    To be perfectly honest, I still have very little information as to what is going on, myself. I've not heard anything from anyone in about a day and a half, so I have no idea which way the wind may be presently blowing. All I can do is cross my fingers and wait for some word, along with the rest of you.

    Having said that (yeah, I know...I still haven't really said anything *laughs*) I must add that you...ALL of you...absolutely blow me away. When someone first informed me of that petition thread on UHall. I was filled with absolute dread. Utter horror. I didn't even want to open and read it, convinced it would be overflowing with a bunch of posters jumping up and down, hollering their heads off and generally making a nasty scene. "Oh GREAT!", I was thinking to myself, "This is going to make me look like some freaking, resentful agitator, and TOTALLY blow any chance I may have at being reinstated! GAAAAHHH!!"

    I was so wrong, and for that, I apologize to each and every one of you. As I read that thread, I was filled with pride as post after post merely underscored what is so fine and right about this forum, and with our community here...each a warm, intelligent, reasoned statement without negativity, each impassioned but with that core of civility and conviction that has become our trademark here. Despite your confusion and anger and upset, you all, I think, have been showing us at our best...and I find myself at a loss to think of any greater compliment for what I have tried to accomplish here. I cannot tell you how much you all mean to me...it's too large to constrain with words.

    That's about all I can say at present (before coffee, don't you know :), save to mention that Joram was given no more notice in this situation than I was.

    Hopefully, all will be worked out...if I ever hear anything, I will let you all know. *runs and hides before that stupid, STUPID title shows up on her post*

    Grand Poobah is pretty bad... maybe you should just go on a posting spree 'til you hit 10,000 so you can pick a custom title ;)

    Now that you aren't a mod maybe you could start posting in a more agressive manner though eh? Think of it as an open invitation to be reckless and dangerous. :D

    Dor, I must apologize. I will never bash your coffee again, it is not "dirt water of the gods" as I called it. Good to see you are posting here again, we have lost or nearly lost a bunch of people over the last few days. Best of luck in everything.

    HI DOR!

    OMG SO happy to see your name on a thread again, Poobah or no Poobah.

    Yup this is a pretty dern fabulous community we have here in the board that Dor built -- you SHOULD be proud-- I too was delighted to see how civilised and sincere the petition thread was.

    FOr those of you wondering where the thread went -- it is still up -- Threads do not get BUMPED on U-hall. They start at the top and sink as others are added....
