Please reconsider. I have been blasted, and even deleted - it is just part of being on a message board.
Many don't understand that you cannot read tone into a post (I, too, am guilty of this)- and that your words may be misunderstood. Just do your best and you will see that the majority of us will not be critical of spelling or punctuation.
One way I deal with being a part of the boards is to pay attention to who is responding and what they are saying. You will see that the majority of those who are causing you your grief post infrequently or tend to look for posts to be critical of.
I would hate to lose a compasionate member of the CM family to a few posts that hurt feelings. There have been a couple of times that I got so upset that I wanted to leave the boards, but the friendships that we have here are far more important that that.
I think it is PapaBill that can attest to the fact that I read something into a post that wasn't there - he explained, and I understood and all is well now.
Please reconsider your decision and stay on with us.
Denise, I was afraid you'd feel that way after I read yesterday's post. I, for one, understood what you were trying to say. Please don't let others chase you away. You are part of our family and we look forward to seeing you every day, and what would we do without our daily weather report from Minneapolis?
BUT-- You CAN'T leave!!!! I look forward to your post every day before I go to work when I'm on here and you post before me!!!
I enjoy your one line delivery. Me, I use A LOT of words, but I'm not sure if my message gets through,either!!
PLEASE stay with us. If you'd like, you can email me at home! Lynne
Don't know what is going on but please don't leave. Hey, I am the worst speller around here but I am german. <so at least I have an excuse> Not too long ago I ahd a problem here also....I wrote the wrong word. Did not mean any harm but these things will happen in the land of ABC'S..........Hang in there!

Denise don't leave because of others who are too ignorant to understand your words. they are the ones I wish would leave. I understood you perfectly, so hang in there girl friend!! Stay with us and our CM family.
Denise, (I am slow at responding ...again!!) Please do not leave-the people that probably posted were inconsiderate and not 'regulars' that enjoy reading your daily check-in post. We would hate for you to go because of some inconsiderate people.
Don't worry-just do the best you can with this typing stuff. I sometimes 'babble on' with my typing and I am sure people wonder what in the world I am trying to say!!
Glad to read that you have hopefully changed your mind!!
Take care Denise. Bye for now. Brenda in Vancouver
