message 1: by Cyril (new)

Cyril Half my goodreads friends dropped me. Sheila Olson, who was one of my two friends let me go. I would not normally post this except that it appears she has disappeared off of GR altogether. Anyone know what happened to her? I will miss her.


message 2: by Lori (new)

Lori Oh crap, yeah she's gone!

*worried*

And someone else dropped me too. Haven't figured out who yet.

I think David is gone.


message 4: by Lori (new)

Lori What happened to David?


message 5: by Dave (last edited Sep 30, 2008 07:58PM) (new)

Dave Russell Well, at least I know who dropped me this time, and they didn't just drop me. They dropped everybody.

Alas, indeed.

I don't know, but I read somewhere that his profile was gone. And he's not in my Friends list anymore.


message 7: by Lori (new)

Lori Huh. I'm hoping with both of them it's a GR snafu, and they'll come back.

I don't think it is some mass exodus, maybe a few just scooted off.


Servius  Heiner  | 1980 comments Mod
or perhaps they have been flagged for abuse.


message 10: by Lori (new)

Lori Heh, that's possible with David!

But Sheila? No way. And she just came back from vacation.


message 11: by Dave (new)

Dave Russell A friend of mine had her profile accidentally deleted by GR, but she came back the next day.


message 12: by Noran (new)

Noran Miss Pumkin Gr can delete your profile--read the terms of policy. They blacked out David's picture several times. i so miss him. now i know why my friend number dropped by two now--sheila also. WOW. Has me thinking too. backed up my reviews and writing tonight.


message 13: by Lori (new)

Lori Donald, did David say why? Could it be the current situation in mini am?

god, I hope it was a mistake with Sheila. I was so looking forward to having her back after her vacation. If she is gone, and any of you know her contact info, I'd really love it.


message 14: by Dave (new)

Dave Russell That's weird. Another of my friends has left GR. Is the Rapture upon us?


message 15: by Lori (new)

Lori Someone we all know?


message 16: by Dave (new)

Dave Russell No. She posted maybe once or twice over in True North, but that was it. I don't think she was in AM or MA.


message 17: by Lori (new)

Lori So you've just lost 3, in your battle for 100, all in one day!


Servius  Heiner  | 1980 comments Mod
It’s time to fortify your flanks, Dave. Stop the bleeding and all that.


message 19: by Xysea (new)

Xysea  (xysea) Wow, it's surprising. And a bummer. I hate when that happens. :(


message 20: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony When you left Gr, Sherri, did you delete your profile?

There are times when I take a day or two off from GR and feel genuinely better. Last spring I was arriving at work and spending an hour in the office answering messages, etc...it was totally fucking me up. I've tried to pull back some since then.


message 21: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony Yeah, I think you have a point, Sherri...as I have said in other situations I get bothered when people threaten to leave as if they're waiting for someone to say "Please, don't leave!" I don't have time for that crap and I don't respect people who play those games.

However, I don't think either David or Sheila fall into that category by a long shot. I don't think groups/profiles are supposed to be permanent and consistent...online presences evolve like anything else. There are some boards (e.g. esp. related to music) on which I used to be very active but I hardly post tbere anymore. Like Sherri says, they just didn't fulfill my needs anymore...that's not a criticism of the boards, it was just time for me to leave the party.


message 22: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony Yeah, I hear you, Donald...

One thing that surprises me is how personally both others and myself can take things that emerge on GR. I'm working to get past that.

I also left miniam because I didn't feel as if the board was still collaborative and the "going private" mandate didn't fit why I signed up for the board in the first place. Leaving miniam feels right...like a load off my back. I hope miniam does well in the future, but it's no longer a party I'm attending, at least for now.

Time works strangely on GR. A day on GR feels like a long time...like what we talked about in the spring feels like months ago...I try to keep that in mind when conflict emerges...it'll all be fine in a couple days, and things would get boring around here if we never conflicted.

RA... what we talked about in the Spring *was* months ago. : )


message 24: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony Years, then:)


message 25: by Xysea (new)

Xysea  (xysea) The whole thing can be intense.


message 26: by Cyril (new)

Cyril The most ironic thing about GR for me is that it is taking time away from reading books.


message 27: by Dave (new)

Dave Russell What's a book?


message 28: by Lori (new)

Lori Bunny!!! hahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

Very practical, Bunny. I can see you have your priorities straight. ;)


message 30: by Xysea (new)

Xysea  (xysea) I agree, Bunny. Eating is also a highly overrated act, I'm finding...

I'm eating RIGHT NOW!


message 33: by Sally (new)

Sally (mrsnolte) I used to check Goodreads in my dreams.


message 34: by Charissa, That's Ms. Obnoxious Twat to You. (new)

Charissa (dakinigrl) | 3620 comments Mod
Goodreads is merely a dream.


message 35: by Misty (new)

Misty i hate it when I'm checking GR in my dreams. I can't read in my dreams, so it ends up being a frustrating, never ending cycle of clicking and checking a different thread, clicking and checking a different group. yuck

It sounds like you all have obsessions that you need to seek help with.
