TO Paula I'm very, very sorry

Posted by Laurie R on 5/25/01 at 18:05 (048907)

Hi Paula, A few weeks back I made a very stupid post to you . I would like to say sorry to you and so everyone else can read it too. Sometimes I pop off at the mouth without thinking. But I wanted you to know how truly sorry I am for it and it will not happen again. My very best to you . Laurie R

Re: TO Paula I'm very, very sorry

Paula A on 5/25/01 at 18:13 (048908)

Laurie,

If you were meaning me..there's no reason to be sorry.
I never read anything from you that was bad..You
are so sweet, so don't fret...

Feeling any better after the confusion of your recent
specialist appt? He threw so much at you...I pray
you find relief soon..

Hugs,

Paula

Re: TO Paula I'm very, very sorry

Laurie R on 5/25/01 at 21:02 (048921)

Hello Paula ,
Thank you Paula .... I am still really confused ... The only thing I can do is wait until next Tue when I talk to my Pod. I just hope he will understan dmy feelings on the specialist. Like I said he may the best doctor in the world ,but he is not the right one for me.

Your right , he did throw a lot of stuff at me. I think the thing I'm mostly upset about is ,I waited almost 5 months to see him and it did not go the way I thought it would.

Is there two Paula's on the board ?? If so maybe I said the stupid think to the other one. And if that is the case I'm very sorry to her. I just don't want to be mean to anyone .... Like I said I do sometimes pop off at the mouth and that is something I'm always trying to work on....

My very best to you....Also thank you so much for asking if I'm feeling better.

Hi Laurie,

I think you are thinking about Pauline, to whom you might have said something you wished you didn't. There are people here who saw to it that she was run off the board. She had a lot of good questions, and a lot of good sugestions. Unfortunatly she rubbed some people the wrong way in some of her posts. I'm very convinced she had no ulterior motives, other than to ensure all the information available was presented in such a way that everyone could make informed decisions. In the long run, this board will miss her wisdom and research. In the short run, the 'family' people have their board back.

Tammie on 5/25/01 at 21:35 (048926)

Brian I hope that you are feeling better , I feel so bad to know that you have so much pain to suffer through! And then allergies to ,wow u are getting it all! I hope u have a very good Memorial Day and that the pain stays at bay as to me I think enough already there has been enough pain for everyone time for a good day!!!!! Lol I cant sleep again so guess where I am , my favorite friend in all the world and it is being naughty keeps booting me off ,this is 2 night in a row I may have to consider a night shift job. Well friend take care and have a good weekend!

Re: To Laurie R

Paula A on 5/25/01 at 21:56 (048928)

Hi Laurie,

I think there is another Paula..Paula G, I believe.

Looking through the archives, I think I saw one
or two other Paula's..Perhaps I should think
about going by my nickname..Pauliana..My
sweetie named me that for my real name Paula
and my online handle in a roleplay, Liana. One
day he combined the two together and I liked
it enough to adopt it...

I really don't think you've been mean though..:)

Good luck at your Pod appt Tuesday. Mine is on
Tuesday morning also..

Take care,

Paula A/ Pauliana..

Re: NOT QUITE, Brian

Steve P on 5/26/01 at 10:12 (048960)

I beg to differ. There is no 'family'. The webmaster kept advising Pauline that she was crossing the line. He gave her repeated warnings/fouls.

No one on this board objects to sincere questions & discussion. The objection is to defamatory comments & innuendo.

Re: NOT QUITE, Brian

Dr. Zuckerman on 5/26/01 at 11:19 (048969)

She ran off to France.!!!!. Now let the French deal with her. !!!.

Re: Pauline ?

wendyn on 5/26/01 at 12:24 (048971)

Ouch Brian.

I'm one of the people who took Pauline to task on a few of her posts. It was a very particular line of questions and comments that I felt was detrimental to the board. I had a problem with those particular posts, but I have certainly never been against her as a person.

Pauline is also a great contributer to this board. She has provided lots of very good advice and support - and raised some valuable and thought provoking questions on many subjects. I've enjoyed many good debates and discussions with her in the past - and just because I didn't agree with one particular way she expressed some opinions - doesn't mean that I had any thing against her - or any desire to be rid of her.

I doubt very much that Pauline is gone for good, and it will be as much of a loss if she does leave - as it has been to lose a lot of the other regulars recently off the board.

Like any other group of people, we aren't all going to agree all the time.

I for one, have really enjoyed the way this board has returned to it's 'friendlier' atmosphere lately...and I'd sure like to see it stay that way. There will always be disagreements, but I hope that we can keep them in perspective.

Re: Hmmm.

wendyn on 5/26/01 at 12:25 (048972)

Dr. Z - you are just not going to be content to let this go are you?

Re: Hmmm.

Dr. Zuckerman on 5/26/01 at 13:59 (048977)

I can't help myself. It is the child in me. !!!

Re: Sorry Wendy, didn't mean you

BrianG on 5/26/01 at 19:08 (048986)

Hi Wendy,

No need for any Ouches. You are the last person I was thinking about when I wrote that post. There's absolutely nothing wrong with good healthy discussion. I was thinking about the people who always had to have the last post. The people who demanded an answer to posts that Pauline was apparently not going to answer. The people who posted little nasty snippits, then claimed they were jokes.

Yes, the board has been quiet lately, as it should be when everyone seems to be in agreement with everything that is posted. When someone posts something that questions any of the current thoughts / procedures, I guarentee it will start up again. People here seem to be content to hear the one, popular, side thats always been presented.

I believe there are two sides to almost every story. Unforunatly there are people here that would repress any ideas, other than the same ones that have been discussed on the board for the past couple of years. Time will tell.

Tammie on 5/26/01 at 19:30 (048987)

Dear Dr. Z.,
I know you both had allot of differences and I am so sorry things could not have worked out . But please dont be as bad by acting like the child, as my good mother has taught me TWO wrongs don't make a right!!!!!! I know you had good reasons to feel hurt and angry but still I like to think that you are the more mature one and to enjoy a more quiet happiness! Sorry If this is offensive I dont mean it to be, I am not a hurtful person but like to point things out lol.

Re: Brian /How are U???

BrianG on 5/26/01 at 19:43 (048990)

Hi Tammie,

I've finally got the allergies back under control. I've been getting them in the fall, but this was my 1st spring attack. And, I hope my last!

I'm now working with the Rehab Dept. of the Mass. State Employment office. All my jobs have been 'on the feet' type of work. I now need a sit down job that just happens to pay a living wage and have full medical and dental bene's. My doc filled out a questionare, and I am now qualified for help. I also have a few 'issuues' to deal with as I take pain meds. It's vicious circle right now. Take the pain meds because of chronic unrelenting pain 7x24. This also disqualafies me from some jobs. Don't take the pain meds, and I can't work. File for SSD and hope for the best???? Loose the appeal, loose the house, unemployed, homeless and still in big pain.

There are no easy answers, as with most of us. We do what we have to, to get by. Thanks for asking Tammie, and I hope your doing better also.

Re: Sorry Wendy, didn't mean you

Scott R on 5/26/01 at 19:55 (048992)

Brian, which ideas are being repressed? That Orbasone is no good, despite common sense and the claims of the founder of its competitor, or the claim that Dr. Z is a fraud, despite the lack of any evidence? Are there some other ideas presented that I can't remember?

Re: Re:Shame on U

Dr. Zuckerman on 5/26/01 at 20:07 (048993)

Believe if I had acted like an adult Pauline would had to part with some of her money that she claims she has. The statements that she made were so outrageous about myself, my practice etc. I had no difference with Pauline except for the false statements that she has made about me.

The shame is that it was allows to be tolerated. Now I can be funny and this is the social board but enough is enough.

Re: Re:Shame on U

Scott R on 5/26/01 at 20:11 (048994)

I agree with Dr. Z. Pauline and Kim were the ones who always had to have the last word (as you may of noticed that I often let them), and it was they who first started trying to silence someone. The nastiness they started would not have ended if I had not finally started doing something. BrianG and I were their only defenders.

Re: Re:Shame on U

Dr. Zuckerman on 5/26/01 at 20:19 (048996)

It had to be that born Southern Hospitality that Scott Roberts only knows.

I think that we all must remember that we are in Scott Roberts house, and since the server is in the Alabama that we are going to live by Southern Rules.

I have a rule for the Social Board. Anything on this section is funny period so long as Scott thinks it funny if he doesn;t then out to the woods for a beating.!!

Rule two you only get four passes ( fouls ( if you live in any of the original confederate states. The rest of us yankess can go to ______

Re: Sorry Wendy, didn't mean you

BrianG on 5/26/01 at 20:24 (048997)

Hi Scott,

I just wanted to check out some of Paulines posts, but all the recient ones have been archived. Where do they go? How can I find them. It's usually easier for me to search chronologiclly, but now that doesn't seem to be possible. When I try to look up Pauline's posts, the latest ones are gone. I can't find any after last summer. Wouldn't it be better to archive the oldest ones first, not the newes ones? There is no way I can find what I'm looking for. Am I missing something on searching?

thanks
Brian

Re: TO Paula I'm very, very sorry

Laurie R on 5/26/01 at 21:09 (048999)

Hi Everyone. What happened here?? I was just trying to say sorry for something I said a while ago. I'm sure it was to a paula.Maybe it is the other Paula. Maybe I said something to Pauline too,I don't remember. If I was wrong to her then I'm sorry for that.

I wanted to say something ... I think the last week has been wonderful on the board.I know a lot of feelings got hurt in the past,but we are here to help each other. Let's get back to how things were. I sure miss some of the wonderful people that left. Maybe now they will come back . They sure helped me so much..... Time heals all wounds......

This board has been so supportive to me trying to deal with my foot pain... I know one thing ,I will think before I post .... Thank you to all. Also I don't hate I appreciate..... I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Thank you Scott for all you do....

Re: Brian /I am sorry

tammie on 5/26/01 at 22:08 (049005)

Brian ,
That just sounds awful i am so sorry!I think it has to be so much worse on men ,I will get in trouble for this comment I am sure ouch. I am glad tho that there is rehab offered as even tho it is a vicious cycle at least there is some hope! You sound to be a very intelligent man so I am sure it will work out for you! I will keep fingers crossed!!!I feel so bad when I whine about pain my daughter calls me a hypo lol I hope that I am not , I guess hearing about feet for so long does get annoying to them even hubby says why do u go to that board and feel sorry for yourself, see they do not understand, I could mention that he to has issues but better to keep mum and do as I like cause I know the truth! LOL my feet do anyways.I feel that i am truly blessed as this site has taught me allot and has made me feel that heeh there are more of me out there so I cannot be crazy alone.Anyways Brian I sure wish I had the majocal power to cure all the pain and problems with feet but unfortuantly I can only offer support and lend a ear if needed as you can see I love to talk lol that makes me good at my job hee. Try to have a sunny day if not outside then inside if you see a smile u know it is me and all your friends here smiling at you!!!!

Re: Re:Sorry Dr. Z and Scott

Tammie on 5/26/01 at 22:20 (049006)

I know what you say is true but I am sorry but I try to live by gods rules if I can lol. So I try to turn the other cheek and if she slaps me well then I willturn the other and say here is the other . Then try to ignore her or try to help her . If neither works I would be the one to leave! That is just my way right or worng. I really dont understand all the ways of this board thing as I really have never been to one. But it is sad that thease things happen. I didnt know so much is involved with running this board! I thought mostly people do it lol, but I am sorry I am computer illiterate to I just know basics although I am picking more and more up! I am sorry if I offended you or anyone it is my nature tho to help or to try and help the ones that are the hardest to deal with, like a challenge. I am sorry and I make my apology to u both as maybe I shouldnt have said shame on u . I am not a judge lol.And I do appreciate the help and knowledge that is offered here.

Re: Re:Shame on U?Dr.Z!!

Donna M. on 5/26/01 at 22:38 (049008)

Southern hospitality yes, but as rules go, we all follow the same ones, no matter if we are fortunate enough to live in the South or not!! :-) But as for the Yankees going to ____, no way!! Without Yankees who would we have to pick on???!!!
Nope~~we want everyone here!! The more the merrier as long as we can keep a sense of humor and not come out with our dukes up!! LOL

Re: Pauline ?

Julie on 5/27/01 at 03:03 (049019)

Brian, I was never one of those who suspected Pauline of ulterior motives, and I agree with you that she often demonstrated knowledge and offered worthwhile contributions to the board. But she also repeatedly rubbished Dr Zuckerman. This was not a question of 'disagreement' or an altruistic desire to see information presented correctly. It was slander. She also repeatedly needled Scott and questioned his motives.

None of this was simply 'rubbing people the wrong way'. It was actively distressing to many people.

I know that everyone says you can't hear 'the tone of someone's voice' in written communications on the internet, but I am a writer, and a careful reader, and I can. There was no mistaking the tone of Pauline's voice in the posts I am referring to, and others: it was biting, snide, sneering, often cruel and always deliberately and precisely targetted. This 'tone' leapt off the screen, and whenever it happened I found it very disturbing. I know that others did too. So when Scott took an increasingly unpleasant situation in hand, as it was his responsibility to do, I was glad.

Re: Sorry Wendy, didn't mean you

Scott R on 5/27/01 at 06:36 (049021)

Use 'pauline.+4/../01' to search everything posted by Pauline in April 2001.

Re: Having trouble searching

BrianG on 5/27/01 at 12:50 (049050)

Scott,

I'm still not getting alll the posts. Isn't there an easier way? This is going to get buried, plus it doesn't even have search in the title. Is there some way you can add the search instruction to the 'search page'? As it is now, I find it almost impossible to use. Can't we look by month, or date, or something like that?

Re: Having trouble searching

Scott R on 5/27/01 at 13:59 (049054)

Brian, I don't understand. I get all the posts, except for the social board which is excluded to weed out junk. It has 'search results' in the title. The method I showed you gives all the results by date. For example, 1/01/01 gives everything posted on jan 1st.

Re: Having trouble searching

Julie on 5/28/01 at 02:29 (049090)

Scott, I don't understand how best to use the search facility either. I've tried twice to call up Pauline's April messages exactly as you suggested, complete with dots and obliques, and got nothing. I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but I think too that instructions would be a help.

Someone asked recently if a search couldn't bring up the most recent messages, instead of the oldest, and I can't recall your answer (you may have said it's not possible). But I think this would be more useful.

Re: Having trouble searching

Scott R on 5/28/01 at 06:45 (049094)

The kind of changes to the search program that are needed are too complex for me to do anything right now. For example, I've had 2 very unique and useful products waiting to be placed on the site for 4 months now. I haven't talked to an accountant or attorney about the website and it is still a sole proprietorship. Another example is that I haven't worked on the book in 6 months. I used to work on it once every month.

Re: Having trouble searching

How about this, have an icon we can click on to get to the parts that are archived. Would that work?

Laurie R on 5/26/01 at 21:09 (048999)

Hi Everyone. What happened here?? I was just trying to say sorry for something I said a while ago. I'm sure it was to a paula.Maybe it is the other Paula. Maybe I said something to Pauline too,I don't remember. If I was wrong to her then I'm sorry for that.

I wanted to say something ... I think the last week has been wonderful on the board.I know a lot of feelings got hurt in the past,but we are here to help each other. Let's get back to how things were. I sure miss some of the wonderful people that left. Maybe now they will come back . They sure helped me so much..... Time heals all wounds......

This board has been so supportive to me trying to deal with my foot pain... I know one thing ,I will think before I post .... Thank you to all. Also I don't hate I appreciate..... I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Thank you Scott for all you do....

I've had the same trouble recently trying to do searches - Scott, wouldn't it make sense to get rid of the oldest first?

Brian ,
That just sounds awful i am so sorry!I think it has to be so much worse on men ,I will get in trouble for this comment I am sure ouch. I am glad tho that there is rehab offered as even tho it is a vicious cycle at least there is some hope! You sound to be a very intelligent man so I am sure it will work out for you! I will keep fingers crossed!!!I feel so bad when I whine about pain my daughter calls me a hypo lol I hope that I am not , I guess hearing about feet for so long does get annoying to them even hubby says why do u go to that board and feel sorry for yourself, see they do not understand, I could mention that he to has issues but better to keep mum and do as I like cause I know the truth! LOL my feet do anyways.I feel that i am truly blessed as this site has taught me allot and has made me feel that heeh there are more of me out there so I cannot be crazy alone.Anyways Brian I sure wish I had the majocal power to cure all the pain and problems with feet but unfortuantly I can only offer support and lend a ear if needed as you can see I love to talk lol that makes me good at my job hee. Try to have a sunny day if not outside then inside if you see a smile u know it is me and all your friends here smiling at you!!!!

I know what you say is true but I am sorry but I try to live by gods rules if I can lol. So I try to turn the other cheek and if she slaps me well then I willturn the other and say here is the other . Then try to ignore her or try to help her . If neither works I would be the one to leave! That is just my way right or worng. I really dont understand all the ways of this board thing as I really have never been to one. But it is sad that thease things happen. I didnt know so much is involved with running this board! I thought mostly people do it lol, but I am sorry I am computer illiterate to I just know basics although I am picking more and more up! I am sorry if I offended you or anyone it is my nature tho to help or to try and help the ones that are the hardest to deal with, like a challenge. I am sorry and I make my apology to u both as maybe I shouldnt have said shame on u . I am not a judge lol.And I do appreciate the help and knowledge that is offered here.

Southern hospitality yes, but as rules go, we all follow the same ones, no matter if we are fortunate enough to live in the South or not!! :-) But as for the Yankees going to ____, no way!! Without Yankees who would we have to pick on???!!!
Nope~~we want everyone here!! The more the merrier as long as we can keep a sense of humor and not come out with our dukes up!! LOL

Re: Pauline ?

Julie on 5/27/01 at 03:03 (049019)

Brian, I was never one of those who suspected Pauline of ulterior motives, and I agree with you that she often demonstrated knowledge and offered worthwhile contributions to the board. But she also repeatedly rubbished Dr Zuckerman. This was not a question of 'disagreement' or an altruistic desire to see information presented correctly. It was slander. She also repeatedly needled Scott and questioned his motives.

None of this was simply 'rubbing people the wrong way'. It was actively distressing to many people.

I know that everyone says you can't hear 'the tone of someone's voice' in written communications on the internet, but I am a writer, and a careful reader, and I can. There was no mistaking the tone of Pauline's voice in the posts I am referring to, and others: it was biting, snide, sneering, often cruel and always deliberately and precisely targetted. This 'tone' leapt off the screen, and whenever it happened I found it very disturbing. I know that others did too. So when Scott took an increasingly unpleasant situation in hand, as it was his responsibility to do, I was glad.

Use 'pauline.+4/../01' to search everything posted by Pauline in April 2001.

Scott,

I'm still not getting alll the posts. Isn't there an easier way? This is going to get buried, plus it doesn't even have search in the title. Is there some way you can add the search instruction to the 'search page'? As it is now, I find it almost impossible to use. Can't we look by month, or date, or something like that?

Re: Having trouble searching

Scott R on 5/27/01 at 13:59 (049054)

Brian, I don't understand. I get all the posts, except for the social board which is excluded to weed out junk. It has 'search results' in the title. The method I showed you gives all the results by date. For example, 1/01/01 gives everything posted on jan 1st.

Re: Having trouble searching

Julie on 5/28/01 at 02:29 (049090)

Scott, I don't understand how best to use the search facility either. I've tried twice to call up Pauline's April messages exactly as you suggested, complete with dots and obliques, and got nothing. I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but I think too that instructions would be a help.

Someone asked recently if a search couldn't bring up the most recent messages, instead of the oldest, and I can't recall your answer (you may have said it's not possible). But I think this would be more useful.

Re: Having trouble searching

Scott R on 5/28/01 at 06:45 (049094)

The kind of changes to the search program that are needed are too complex for me to do anything right now. For example, I've had 2 very unique and useful products waiting to be placed on the site for 4 months now. I haven't talked to an accountant or attorney about the website and it is still a sole proprietorship. Another example is that I haven't worked on the book in 6 months. I used to work on it once every month.

Scott

How about this, have an icon we can click on to get to the parts that are archived. Would that work?
