I don't plonk anybody - just try to exhibit control when my fingers are trembling to type snark in return. I adhere to the old quote "Keep your friends close, but keep your enemies closer". I sometimes even punish myself by listening to right wing AM radio just to know what rants are being thrown out there (shudder).

I see certain names on certain threads and know I can skim them. I see other names and think Shut the Fuck Up You Don't Have a Clue. I see some names and sigh and wish I had any other volunteer gig, including wiping ass. I see new names and know I must check them out. I see some names and joyfully read their posts.

Ooo - yeah - ick. You not only have no ability to plonk, but can't ignore either. Even though you can delete, once the shit is in your head, it would take a lot of scrubbing to get it out (or a lot of alcohol).

What I hate the most is to see a burner we all know, and perhaps love, perhaps not, crash and burn and take the long way to a lifetime at Camarillo.

i agree. i spent one whole evening just reading through trying to figure out who all was really just one person. with the exception of Simon, it got tedious. there is one glorious thread where i think one whole page is all simon. there might have been one other person who snuck in a post, but here lately i'm thinking she might be simon too.

no worries with me having any socks, i have a hard enough time just keeping up with me.

Yes, not Iso or her evil twin, I actually like them both, even though one is filled with acid, the other with bourbon.

For someone else I did A long time ago then undid it. This is all petty and stupid anyway, we should be having a nice time. Life is too short and too fucky sometimes.

Not really. Just like people you meet in the real world; some you like, some you don't. You don't spend time visiting or talking to those you don't like. Why should it be any different here?

Actually, there have been a few threads posted lately that were only responded to by people I've plonked and so when I click on them they are totally blank!

Doesn't that make eplaya so much more pleasant to read?

I use plonk as freely as I walk away from annoying people in real life.

i have been more than open with the knowledge of my socks, who they are, etc. on numerous occasions.

Liz Estrada....(please please get the pun) is mine as well.

as to why, well let's just say there is a method to my madness which is part of the fun.

now back to our regular de-programming.

OK, I need to jump in. This is important.
In my career as the Chief Poopervisor of the Pottie-Project I have been witness to a great number of seagulls who have dissed my Art. I have been very fortunate to have many fellow-travelers who have plonked what they have posted. I myself have plonked anyone who has posted their vitriolic and/or short-sighted bs about this very important issue. I take this kind of nastiness very personally, as you well know. I will cheerfully STOMP on anyone who fucks with my potties. I'm not amused with any negatively proffered diatribe regarding this most sacred of resources.

Because I'm primarily off-line (no fault of my own) I rely on those fellow-travelers to monitor the air-waves for these seagulls. I truly appreciate the help.

What really burns my biscuits of late is the presentation of some brilliant idealist that believes that a single sign can do the job that I have been doing for 11 years!!!!! I'm not ready emotionally to divulge this latest irritation, but leave it that I wanted to PLONK THE FUCK out of the one who presented it to me.

Can one sign - no matter how well written - do the job that my 400 signs do? I'm not convinced. My project includes signs by Participants like all of you. You know who you are - your signs are out there. To usurp this participatory art project is heinous and offensive. If there is one person who can do better than me, I want to meet that person. I am not convinced that I need "buttressing".

The signs are only the beginning of what I do. You all know what I really do. It's an on-going, constant, attention to all facets of all that is poop in our fair city.

Thank you very much Motsky for all the hard work you have done over the years for the Pottie-Project. You have been stalwart regardless of all conditions.

Sincerely,
RobbiDobbs

Yay for Plonkage and Yay for the potty project!

No baby wipes in the potty no matter how flushable they are.

If it doesn't come from your body it doesn't go in the potty.
