So this is not really about r/t switchery, but more of a question of why this area of the message boards gets so little action.
One...because I'm a switch...who won't switch. I've chosen to act on one of my two possible modes because I have a preference. The other side is still there, way in some back corner.
About this part of the message boards, well...it's usually pretty dead. I know, part of the solution instead of part of the problem, but do you know how discouraging it seems if you ask a question...and others tell you you shouldn't have started a thread about it, as the archives are full of past discussions, and to go learn how to use the search feature?
If I go by that logic, then about everything anyone can possibly talk about now has already been talked about and there should be no new threads started anywhere. Other than the, "When ya kicked his arse, did your foot get stuck there and what did the doctor have to say about THAT" kind of questions.
Then, if someone starts a thread...most only look at the headliner and respond to that, or only read the first post made...which kind of makes this pointless if only the OP is going to read the posts everyone made.
Also, usually when I say something...I feel like my posting was invisible or else it's a thread killer, lol.
I enjoy answering what anyone asks, as if they are serious even if they're blatantly trollish, because I enjoy doing so. I will also clearly state my opinion as expressively as I can.
There are a lot of things I'd like to know, but since I'm in happy, hot pursuit of someone right now...anything I ask would sound like it's originating from my thoughts of him and it may or may not be the case. Either way, I don't want to embarrass him. If it doesn't work out and I'm "in between" again, I will joyfully throw myself into making new threads.
I used to have to do that years ago, at another forum where I was a mod. Had to keep everything moving along.
It would be nice to know if there are others like me who are switch but choose to stick to one side. Because emotionally I can go both ways, I don't feel right to put on red.
