    It reminds me of Facebook. It's not nice for those with low self esteem. So please!

    LOL, that would make things worse, but thanks. ;) It's not that people here are bad at giving likes... I enjoy it, and I like giving likes too, but I think it's a bad practice. I do not believe I'm not the only one that has gotten a bad feeling... Maybe it's my AVPD that makes me extra sensitive.

    This is very true, especially around here. This place will either chase you off or toughen you up - if it does the latter, it's a blast. But nobody here minds telling you if you're an asshat, no tiny violins will play, and unless you've been an asshat by breaking some of the very few rules, nothing else will happen. People have to cause a SERIOUS problem round here to get the banhammer, it's not just because some moderator is having a bad hair day.

    So yeah, welcome to VU! The grownup vaping forum! :giggle:

    And hey, mods, don't remove the like -- it's a way of saying "Yes I agree" "or "that's funny!" without having to clutter the place up. However a thumbs-down button would be lervely. :D

    It is nice to only have the like button over here imo. On that other forum I used to frequent there were too many options and the disagree button always started some kind of drama when someone hit it.

    People on Reddit flip out over downvotes. I see it all the time. "Thanks for down voting me. I'm not coming back to this sub". I still don't even know what the votes are for there. Some people get all bent out of shape and I don't even pay attention to my score lol.

    Y'know, I've been online in one way or another since 1989 -- internet since '99, when I started building websites,using both plain HTML/CSS, and content mgmt systems of quite a few different kinds, even some for .NET/ASP servers... and I have NEVER been able to figure out Reddit; how the "threading" works, how to find something... nothing. Anytime I've tried to find something on Reddit, I usually end up in a thread that's been closed since 2010 or something. :facepalm:

    I'll stick to forums, Quora, and twitter -- those are actually organized in a way that makes SENSE.

    I only Reddit one forum over there.
    And not a lot on this one.
    https://www.reddit.com/r/electronic_cigarette/

    That forum and this one are the only places I post on the net.
    I was on the internet before it was known or browsers existed.
    I worked in Telecom.
    Before that I was on some dialup boards.

    Yeah I made and ran some dialup BBS's, before the internet; that was my alternative to soap operas and Harlequin novels, after I had a baby... then took a break for a few years, just kinda got tired of it, and when my back was turned, the internet happened. :D As soon as I first saw it, in Sept '99, I called up my husband at work and said "Whatever you have to do to get enough $$$ to buy me an up-to-date PC and modem, DO IT!" I was still running Win 3.1 at that time, though Win 95 had just turned into Win 98; I already knew the 9600 modem I had wasn't NEARLY fast enough, it was barely adequate for plain ASCII. Got a marginally-capable PC and 56k modem, and got on the internet -- by December, I'd learned HTML and CSS and built my first website and there was no holding me back, I went thru a series of faster and faster PCs and modems till I finally got a really good PC and broadband internet.

    But I can't make heads nor tails of Reddit. It's the most disorganized mess I've ever seen.

    That and Fake Book both somehow manage to frighten me in an odd way. Although today my baby brother got me bawling over a post he made on Fake Book. I really need to punch that asshole. *chuckles*

    His post reminded me that me and him both never had a father that reached out to their kids. It also reminded me we both learned better from that. Thirdly, it recalled my Pap and how he taught us. He lived what he taught. If you couldn't keep up and got it wrong, that was all on you. Pap didn't repeat. Pap might if you got lucky tell you he loved you once. Otherwise you knew he did because of how he lived.

    Yeah, need to punch my baby brother. Too much dust to work on RDAs.

    One of the VERY few things I like better about Quora than here is that there is also a "down vote" arrow. ;)

    A site called "DSL Reports" (aka: "BroadBand Reports") used to have both "up" and "down" vote buttons. But then some people with frequently unpopular PoVs complained about the downvote buttons and they were removed.

    I want a "thought Silly Putty did it better' button. Why? Why not? *grin*

    Actually we ought to have a number of goats rating system. "How many goats is this post worth to you? 1 - 5" We cannot use dolphin anal sex encounters because there's some environmental law protecting the now alleged "sacred" dolphin and human interaction. Otherwise we might have the question be; "How many times would you let a dolphin fuck your ass for this post? 1 - 5"

    *chuckling heartily borrows a quote* "That's some funny shit right there."

    I'm probably the only person what can both agree with and disagree with you all in same stroke. Can agree because I can grasp your point and do see it having a good bit of validity. Can disagree because I've struggled in life with low self esteem and grasp that point as well. Now, granted I've been to therapists. *sighs* As much as I can agree "talking helps" can agree that "talking helps nothing".

    Here are some quick summary lessons I've learned in living.

    "Fuck a truck! Ride a horse there cowboy and get back in the saddle if it throws ya!"

    Life will kick your ass to the ground. What matters is not the stumble, but that you pick your ass up, dust off and get back to the fight. That has to be your only response too. Why? Well, if you want to lay on the ground you'll get walked over by others living life.

    Crying over whatever can only make a person go mad, in a very negative way. Not saying grief over losing those dear is not needed, desired. Am saying that life requires us to meter ourselves with an adage of "all things in moderation, even moderation itself."

    "You're unique & "special", my son, ... just like everyone else."

    It is perfectly fine if 10,000 people dislike you. Hell, would be surprised it would be only so few. Why is it fine? Well consider there's now roughly 9 to 10 billion people on Earth. Gee, somebody is bound to like you, somebody is also bound to dislike you. That's human nature. I'm not one to suggest accepting "that's the way it is and nothing will change" but sometimes you need to pick your battles understanding that principle too.

    Shit happens. It happens to everyone in equal measure too. Don't believe that? Fine, believe what you want, least you're believing something. Point being everyone faces the shit in life. That won't change unless you die. Life is change, it's a process, it's vibration which in its rights is conflict, rebellion.

    Oh and the bold quote above this section is an actual quote from my mom. She is always great about shit like that, build you up and tear you down all at the same time. But her wisdom does sink in. Reckon my Pap brought her up "right" after all. :)

    "Love is the ultimate power of the 'verse."

    I'm getting more and more convinced, life is truly the most beautiful miracle of love. The Cosmos certainly would like to follow the "path of least resistance", that would mean no life. Well, apparently there's some form of conscious "out there" which loves itself and in doing so realizes its own awareness, life. So in Its wisdom It created life so as to express love. You have to admit such a theory conveys the awesomeness of living. :)

    To clarify, I'm not saying there is, or is not any god/God. What I am saying is there exists a possibility. The same possibility that mankind invents gods exists too. Still, in all I've lived, experienced I have to admit there has always seemed there is something "out there". That only makes sense to me too if I ask the honest question of "Gee, all this shit happens, wonder who or what is slinging shit my way?" Of course, the possibility that shit "just happens" exists too. *chuckles* I know, that's a rather broad circular argument. Not quite able to phrase it any better, words get in the way.

    TL;DR or, "Hey dip-shit, this ain't worth half a goat."

    So yes, can agree and disagree with you. Still love ya either way. *hug* See, tell y'all I'm fucked up. Now, ya ought to start figuring out I'm being honest. :)

    Ultimately, doing creates living. Worrying over petty stuff such as this one or that one likes this or that you say/write, is a waste of time. You'll piss people off, you'll have people agreeing with ya. That happens the same as shit happening. Get the fuck over it and do, live. All the rest of us are doing that and well it seems to work out at least "okay". *chuckles* "Fuck the Bozos!" And while I'm at it, "Hey you guys! :D Go fuck yourself!"

    YUP! Like or not, I don't care, but I don't get all depressed if someone doesn't like what I say. Hell, most of the time people DON'T like what I say. And I don't care. lol.
    LOL I've called a member in another forum who had been a member 3 years longer than I was a "toodle puffer" and told him to get out of the advanced section and go back to new users. LMAO. Experience is not the same as expertise. He may have puffed a 20w mod for 10 years but that doesnt mean he can build for a Doomsday mod..

    *LOL* True enough indeed. Though for me, kind of prefer sticking with a professional over an expert. An expert it usually seems can tell you how well they are at something specific. Fine and well. When the shit gets slung into the fan, there's the professional muddling along quietly and not minding having to mix half a dozen skills, ways of doing to get through it.

    So, yep I got brought up that being a jack of all trades was a good thing. Might not preform brain surgery but figure I could at least point you to a brain. I mean everyone knows it's behind your belly button. Your brain is that primal beast always wanting beans, nice luscious and life giving beans. Hm, yummy beans, ... Oh, got diverged. *chuckles*

    Put another way, I'll be a cook and remain a cook over being a chef. Damn chefs might know to cook but they usually stand out of the kitchen bitching at every other cook to cook. Maybe they are entitled, but maybe not too? Meanwhile have ya some crash breakfast omelet cooked up by somebody tossing in the kitchen sink to make up a quick breakfast on the spot. Damn it, nearly lost the beans. Be right back, ...

    For the longest time as I considered writing as something more than a hobby to do, I was paralyzed by having to try being the least offensive I could be. Some wise old bird, who might have written one of the best fantasy series ever, saw my struggling. Her advice: "Fuck 'em all if they can't take a joke. No matter what anyone writes, it is guaranteed someone will be offended. So you writer, fucking write like nobody cares, even you."

    And then probably the best or worst thing in life happened. *chuckles* I saw The Big Leboski.

    And well, Sam Elliot just ain't ever wrong even if he admits being wrong. :)

    *LOL* "And then, ....?"

    Nah dude, c'mon you could have helped yourself. *chuckles* But it's alright, I'm just as pathetic as well. *chuckles* We're all such a shameful race of duplicitous fools as to not help ourselves. Seems we all need our heroes. *shaking my head with arms open to hug you*

    One day, ...

    Well... I'm a tootle puffer, but a long damn way from a new user. Can I build for some cloud chucker atty? No, never tried, never needed to, so i wouldn't presume to offer an opinion. Build for a low-wattage/high-resistance atty? Yep, I'm a jen-yoo-wine expert on those! For five years!

    Just being a "tootle puffer" has NOTHING to do with being a beginner or an expert. It's just one preference.

    Can agree with this. At one time I too tootle puffed. Then, I realized the power of Squonk + RDAs (Thank you @Hank F. Spankman aka Spanky). And then, I learned Jesus was an architect and Jerry Lee Lewis was the devil. ;) :):D

    Not sure I could go back to enjoying tootle puffing. Suppose if it was a have to do, I'd be suited to do it. It's not so much that I chuck clouds now. I might get some nice ones once in a while, mostly though I have moderate clouds. It doesn't matter much to me beyond enjoying the texture of more cloud in the use of RDAs.

    I'm so glad we can all find what we like. :)
