Hey, I have been gone a while......what is with all of the "banned" sloagans under everyone's signatures? Part of the reason I left this place a couple of years ago was because some of the best MDC members EVER got banned....

You can imagine why it is weird to see all of those comments under your names. I know I am being hormonal (starting menopause) but I have to admit I am not seeing the humor....how did it all get started? BTW, I am not mad at anyone or the management here, I am just letting you know that it kind of is upsetting to see. I am probably just being emo....

I was gone a while, too, Marg. Somebody told me she thought it was a April Fool thing from last year. Like you, the humor in it sort of passed us by. I'm sure it was meant well, but yeah, I've seen a lot of passionate folks disappear over the years whom I still miss very much.

It was an April Fools joke from the mods last April Fools day.

Good to see you Marg ~ I've missed your voice. And someone else's as well.

I've no insight on the banned comments, I mostly stick to a few small corners of the MDC world these days. Too big for me.

Actually, it was quite hilarious at the time. I decided just to keep mine, lol.

Yup, from last year. I've never changed mine cause I didn't have a senior title anyway, and I still haven't come up with one.

Gem!!! we simply MUST see each other again in the FLESH!!!!!! You are the only one (other than Els) who can keep up with my random, blathering, nonsensical and way too revealing communication style!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Plus, I never get embarrassed around you!
