humanodon  ·  3644 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Hubski -- some observations

I'm late to this party (as I often find is the case these days) but my 2 cents is that I really feel like a lot of the reactions we've had to the "ignore" feature is unwarranted. It's like when I meet someone who I can tell is really eager to be friends, even though we just met. It makes me wary and suspicious.

When I was new here I didn't expect anyone to give my comments any weight and so I started participating in stuff and before long I met people who are also interested in writing and music and art and that I suddenly was forming relationships with users, not usernames. I now have two pen pals (well, e-vox pals) and various other people I communicate with outside of "the public" such as it is on hubski. I've asked for advice on things, earnestly and I've gotten honest advice back. Hell, some of you guys have even tried to help me find work.

Social dynamics are nerve-wracking in face to face situations and for a lot of people it lends itself toward an "I don't give a fuck" kind of attitude. That's fine, but not giving a fuck about what other people think also means not giving a fuck about how one's own presence affects others, which at the end of the day does not lend itself to building relationships.

Hubski. Sit down and give a fuck: hubski might just start to give a fuck back.

Humanodon, I always look forward to your comments/posts on the site and I look forward to the drinks and discussions that we will undoubtedly have IRL someday.

I just made you and humanodon editors of the amazing slogan list so perhaps one of you can add it. I added eightbitsamurai as well because the last one tng suggested was by 8bit: "8 out of 10/would hubski again"

and a reminder to tng to mention to the team kb's suggestion:

See, I was wondering if I had actually been the one to say the "8/10 Would Hubski Again" thing, and I didn't! It was actually veen.

I appreciate attributing cleverness to me, though, lil.

lil  ·  3644 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Thanks for the correction. Let's see if veen agrees with you. I added veen to the edit list.

Thanks! I corrected the " that was astray in the quote.

I'm somewhat inconsistent with the use of quotation marks. I should either add them all or remove them all.

By the way, I think you'll be the next character up in eightbitsamurai's story. He's looking for some maps.

Same here man! BTW, I've got more words coming for you, just gotta process some stuff.

Dude, I'm literally about to sit down in the studio and try to create something. If you have any words, even one line... PM me.

Actually, preferably no more than 4 lines, so long as you don't mind me treating them like clay.
