People that wake up everyday to sunshine regardless of the actual weather, whose lives look peachy perfect b/c of their demeanor, whose energies and smiles motivate you or make you want to strangle them... 

Or do you?

OK, so you don't REALLY want to know what it is you do to provoke people?  I'm confused.  Isn't that what you asked?

Sure it was.  A question was asked, not answered and then posts were provided for basis of that question.  

Heck, if I got upset everytime you posted information that wasn't correct about me, I wouldn't have a sunny disposition, lol.

No it isn't exactly the way you are treated all the time.

You've done that so many times it isn't even funny.   Remember your sleuthing around and posting information on Ducky's kids, for instance?

You're right. I have done some despicable things. I'm not sorry though. I'm a bitter and sad person and this is the only way I can feel better about myself.- lololololol bawahhhaaaa

I'm not offended, scared or harmed by the TRUTH being regurgitated.  Sometimes it's just plain silly and irrelevant to the conversation at hand, but it's not defamatory, it's not offensive, and it's not harmful (barring something like criminal activity that one might want kept hush hush).     What is offensive and scary is when things are misrepresented, misstated, twisted or, in many instances recently, just plain made up.

And that is why I have - recently - been reluctant to provide information. Becasue while it is FACTUAl or TRUE when I provide it, it often is twisted back into untruths.  And that is why I am reluctant to provide more than basics about my family, friends, coworkers or others. 

I used to be able to share more stuff here - either in a manner seeking advice, or simply in a conversational manner.   I rather miss that.
