Making an honest observation isnt being a Debbie Downer, per se.
I do feel bad KU is still clinging to life with nothing good to offer. Most of the threads are political and petty. Two of the six posters are always iced. How is this site fun, positive or productive for anyone?
Between FB and Kingwood.com, the locals have their social media needs met. Read through the front page of KU. If you werent a moderator, would you come here?
Debbie Downer was referring to other comments you make like about the mass shootings and you said NO ONE CARES in KW bc they were too busy stopping at Starbucks on their way to get their nails done...Downer? Very Negative at least? And To be honest, yes. I know many of these people irl. I also don't like giving up on things or pooping out when there's potential. And there is. The site CAN be more interesting if WE post things other than politics and memes meant to inflame.
WE make it or break it. And the same 3 or so people always iced have zero to do with that. They're iced bc they want to be. We've had plenty of other "liberals" who NEVER get iced. When was Randall ever iced? Butterbean? Even you Dot? Rarely, if ever. They know how to discuss and communicate.
SighFi, I didnt say Kingwood, it was a general statement about society when mass shootings happen. Sorry if you took it personally.
Emp, were looking at CT. Initially it was Maine, but, after really thinking about the transition with the kids, we thought it may not be the best move.
The CT move would be closer to family and the job would be pretty cool as well. Plus, more opportunities for the kids education and jobs, etc. My in laws are in their mid 70s, so, we need to make this happen soon.
I didn't take it personally at all bc I DO care, as most people do, and I don't get my nails done nor frequent SB. It was about how you feel no one cares about something so horrendous and scary. Society just hasn't figured out what to do and how to do it but it doesn't mean no one cares. That sentiment comes from a sad place of frustration, and we all feel it.
I'm trying to do the same. Talking about the Voice, football, whatever else there is besides politics- I always like KU, and wouldlike to see it bloom again. As it is, now, Kingwood.com is much better and more interesting, but that's because the posters make it so- and they care about the other posters. AS it should be.
