You come across an quite an interesting person. When I first saw your name it stood out to me for some reason. I noticed a lot of your posts took a different stance, such as a post about buying a high price watch. I may be remembering this wrong but you seem to take the stance that by getting this watch it would cause people to perceive you in a better light.

I'm not sure why you post certain things.

I think I will post what I will now call feel good posts to the LBYM (I'll intentionally ask stuff so that folks can rip on me and feel good about themselves).

You intenionally want folks to rip on you? Interesting. I may post something to bring about a different opinion at times. I don't want folks to rip on me, but if they do I do not care. Sometimes by disagreeing we will all learn quite a bit.

I have a post last night that is approaching 20 recs and it is directed to you. Did I write this to get recs? No. I do not understand why some of my posts get recs and then other posts that I think would get recs do not. My post towards you was not meant as an insult. I do not intentionally insult anyone. We are all human beings and I wish we could all get along.

On the LBYM board for the past year and a half that I have been there, there are repeatedly complaints about OT posts. You came up with the idea of having this board. Great idea. I still don't understand why after getting this board you would take a very OT subject from LBYM and post it on that board. It seems it would make more sense on this board. But who am I? I am just a guy who likes reading TMF. Even though a major goal of mine is to RE, I live for today. I don't mean I spend all of my money today. I live for today. I may get hit by a truck tomorrow and it doesn't matter if I am the president of Cisco or if I am a billionaire. What matters is what my family remembers me as and did I or did I not enjoy myself while I was alive.

Tweaker, keep up with you good, quality posts, but do you really need to post something with the intention of causing people to rip you?

Mark :-)
