Thanks all for the kind words. Well I have taken the plunge and started planning, don't know when or how it will be paid for, but you got to start somewhere. What's New Year's Eve like at Disney?

We celebrated our Honeymoon at Disney and maybe we could get New Year's eve and our Tenth Anniversary togethor.

You can have Mya ask Santa for Disney tickets this Christmas. That is what we did with our boys about 3 yrs ago and they were so excited to find them in their stockings. We went Jan 2nd for 4 days about 3 years ago. There are no lines, no waits the weather was great. The boys wore sweat shirts in the morning and night with jeans or sweat pants. I would rather layer up and take off than stand in the heat.

We have a huge family gathering this New Years 2006. We are renting an 8 bedroom villa on Formosa Gardens and we have about 23 people going. We will be celebrating my Mom's 60th birthday on 1/1/07 and she will have all her grandkids with her. I am hoping to get her in the parade with the grandkids at MGM on that day.

Thanks for the advice on Disney Scene It!!! Ben and I had a blast playing yesterday. :)

Does anyone else skip quesions? We're skipping the "spellbinders" right now. It's now fair since he is hot quite there in spelling yet.

We actually do, a few times over. :blush: DH grew up in a small town near Findlay, and their families know each other to some extent (everyone in rural NW Ohio knows each other :rotfl: ).

Then, first semester freshman year in college Ben and I were in a small group together and hung out from there. We were also both pre-med (at least at that point), so we pretty much stuck to the same circuits (socially and some classes) until he left after our Junior year.

Before anyone asks for box seats, I don't have those :rolleyes: We aren't close enough to chat daily, I've never been to his (giant) new house, etc. But if we're at the same function he knows Kyle and I and still comes to chat for a minute. He's definately a class act guy. :goodvibes

im definitely jealous--i love him ahah

Tammi - we Bengals fans have a HUGE advantage over the steeler fans - we dont expect ANYTHING from them - we are just ecstatic they actually made the playoffs!!

which might be why the bengals will have an advantage over the steelers - I just hope it isn't cold - carson doesn't do so well when it is - being a Southern California boy

Mac - happy anniversary!!!! Good to "see" you again

Same where we live... new houses pushing them out with no where to go! Sad!

I can sympathize. In our neighborhood we regularly have elk, deer, quail and foxes in our yard. What was really scary was that last year a neighbor of mine was having lunch in the yard with her 3 kids and a cougar strolled into her yard as bold as brass. They bolted into the house and called the police. The police connected them with the city offices and they were told they could do nothing since the cougars were here first. Now that's comforting. We had a neighborhood meeting and contacted the Fish and Game people and they told us to go ahead and if we saw it to shoot at it. I hate to see that happen, but I'd much rather a cougar die than any of our kids who have to walk to and from school. It's a tough situation. Finally, a neighbor got the cougar trapped in his yard and called F & G. They came, tranquilized it and took it elsewhere to be released. It was really scary for a while.

Morning Strangers!

Just thought I would pop in and say hello. I have backed up and become a lurker, because seeing this place let's me know how much I miss not being at Disney.

My wife has told me we need to plan another trip since she was so ill on the last one and I don't think a day goes by that Mya doesn't say "Daddy, when are we going to ride the Teapots again"

So I guess it's time to save that pocket change and see what specials come up. I did just purchase 100 pins for trading, so that's a start. That pin trading was addictive!

Hope all of you are doing well!

p.s. Today is my wife and my Nineth Year Wedding Anniversary. :sunny: Wow time flys!

Oh I almost forgot, congrats Alabama, you beat my Alma Mater. I was in shock standing there watching that knuckle ball go over the post. Your fan's were quite pleasant however.

Yea! Mac's back! It's nice to see you. Stop lurking and join in the fun! We now have another man here, and I'm sure he'd be glad for the company. Not to mention Paul is still lurking. We need more testosterone.

Congrats on being able to plan another trip. I can't wait to read all about it!

By the way, your family picture is gorgeous! You have a beautiful family. Congratulations on 9 years! That is wonderful!

You guys are making me want to go back to school. The problem is, I'm still not sure what I want to be when I grow up. But I do like going to classes and learning. I've always wanted to be a SAHM, and I do love it. The problem is that my youngest is in school all day, and my oldest heads for college in 3-1/2 years.

I have a BS in Biomedical Computing and have taken graduate courses in programming, toxicology, pathobiology, etc. Unfortunately, there isn't much to do with that around here (and I've been away so long that I'm outdated).

Where is everyone? It is awfully slow today.

I have been working on paperwork for my Brownie troop since about 9:30am today. You heard me write, so much for the joke of its only an hour a week. I love my troop, I hate all the paperwork. Every time we don't meet at our normal meeting location or time we need a 3 page form filled out. Plus we have to do permission slips for all of the girls. I totally understand why all of it is necessary but I am just getting frustrated.

Especially since the permission slip which is formatted to fit on one piece of paper is taking up two before I fill in the lines to add information. 3 lines are on the second page. Any ideas on how to print on one page, I can't change the margins since it is already formatted. This is in Microsoft Word. I have used it before and it has been on one page but not today.

Also I checked on our council's page there it is a PDF file that cannot be filled out on the computer. Why don't they have it that you can fill out on the computer?

I'm just grateful that the technology exists to let me do my schooling online. This way, when the twins are in school full time, I'll have my MS certification and can apply for work in a school or town library (my dream job, by the way, surrounded by books). I've been feeling guilty lately that my DH has to work his paid job, and also freelance jobs for us to make ends meet. And to top it off, he just let me get this surgery which was quite expensive. He's the greatest guy and I love him. I can't wait until I can give something back to the household. I could have gone back to teaching, but that's not something that I really want to do anymore. Been there, done that.

Kate has started her own thread and says this and PM is the best way to reach her. So I don't know how much of her we will be hearing from her in this thread.

It is so unfortunate that our happy home is being torn apart again, because people are not thinking before they act. Apparently people are not following our joint New Years resolution.

This is really frustrating me. Before you send any message please stop and reread your message before you send it to decide whether or not it can be misconstued and will be considered offensive to someone else. :) It might take another 30 seconds but I think it is worth it to prevent frustrating someone else.

If this seems harsh it is no way shape or form intended to be. I tried to word things as nicely as possible if I didn't succeed I am sorry.

Sending :grouphug: and :wizard: to all the DDAer's for happier sailing in the future.

Becky

Well, my problem is that I thought we weren't going to air any dirty laundry, get this thread involved in negativity, etc . I thought we had made decisions about that already....

We have all sorts of new people joining this thread because it's become "the place to go" for friendship, pixie dust, etc... we've spread the word that it's a great place to hang out. I have no idea what's happened now.... I'm sad for the people who make their way over here right about now.

I actually had something exciting I logged on to share, but I don't know where to go around here anymore! :confused3

I think I'll wait somewhere until the dust settles :guilty:

Well, I just walked in from work to find the DDA in huge disarray. I do not know any details, but obviously a DDAer(s) has done something completely thoughtless and mean spirited enough to drive Kate away. Why anybody would think it's appropriate to send a bomb to anybody's PM box is completely beyond me. That could never be construed as funny. Ever. What were you thinking??????


If it weren't for Kate, this whole DDA would not exist. The fact that somebody would send her something that mean spirited has me appalled and outraged. I don't know what happened to all the nice things that used to be here, but I feel this thread is now dying a very painful death.

To say that I am very upset and angry with the person(s) involved (whoever you may be) is a gross understatement. I believe we are all adults here and know how to handle ourselves in a congenial and respectable manner. Obviously not.


Well, if this is the state of affairs here, then I am sorry to say that I will no longer be posting. I will not idly stand by while my friends are attacked. I hope the offending party (ies) realize what they have done and make the proper amends to Kate.

Kate is my friend. Marti and Skunka are my friends. Some people here have offended them, and you've offended me. I do have many DDAers whom I really love and count as friends. But now, I know there are some here with whom I would never use that word, in fact just the opposite. I hope the culprits are proud of themselves.


For shame.

I have no idea what is going on? :confused3 What is a "bomb" some sort of nasty PM or something? And why would anyone send one to Kate? First of all she IS the queen and most importantly and I'm sure this is true for others if it weren't for her talent and generosity My DS's first birthday trip wouldn't have been nearly as magical. :wizard: People noticed the shirt more than the little sticker we got at City Hall. And the looks on my kids faces with their names for Christmas "priceless" (Sometimes we have a hard time finding personalized stuff for all the boys so having their own personalized shirts made their day. Not to mention with our size of family the money we saved not having to order matching shirts off Disneydirect. Which translated to dinner at Goofy's Kitchen which the kids loved. :love: ) I am sorry if any posts I made about my DH or family seemed so negative that they upset others. (Going through a difficult time in our marriage as we're having 1 of our sons tested for autism, asperger's and ADHD trying to find out what's wrong and how best I can help him and I have seasonal depression on top of that) I never meant to offend anyone. I really don't care if I get gifts from DH, good or bad, as I consider being able to stay home with my 4 DS's the best gift. Throw in a few vacations and I'm good to go. :teeth: Here's hoping this can get worked out. :grouphug: If not, I want to thank Kate and Denise for all their great designs (Denise I am saving some of your Christmas designs for our trip to WDW in 2007 for our tenth anniversary so I'll thank you ahead of time for when I use them, just need to figure out how to change dates and names. :) ) It was fun and helped to brighten my days. If I had upset anyone feel free to PM me and I would gladly apologize maybe if everyone did this then we could clear the air and get back to normal.

I don't know what a "bomb" in a PM means either but I cannot understand why anyone would want to send one to Kate. She has been so generous with her time & talent.

I agree with Denise totally..this forum was a place for fun chat & design & has seemingly gone down hill...very unfortunate..it was fun.

Wow, came back in rather crazy times I guess. I hope all turns out well. I will miss the designers here, as they helped make my Daughter's 3rd Birthday Special as well.

What happened to all the "Magic"?

HEY Becky did you see this? Did I miss your reply? I thought it was cute, and I am sure they have colors, or maybe you can customize one for Disney. :rotfl:

I would be willing to go on TOT with anyone and hold their had, as long as it is not with the guy I rode on with once. But this time I will be sure to wear a t-shirt and long pants.

At this time all the seats had the lap bars and their was the one suicide seat all the way in the middle of the back row. I noticed while we were waiting in line their was this guy who looked very panicky, not looking too thrilled to be riding turns out he is only riding because his daughter about 8 years old wants to ride and he doesn't want her to ride alone.

When we get our seats facing the back of the car, we are in the last row. His daughter is to the left of the suicide seat, he is assigned the suicide seat, I have the seat to his right and Kelly has the seat to the right of me. I can tell he doesn't want to sit in that seat and he is afraid of putting his daughter in this seat.

I agree to trade with him. So now his daughter is still to the left of the suicide seat, she didn't want to move, I am in the suicide seat, scared guy is to the right and Kelly is in the seat next to the right of him. When they close the doors and say have a good drop, he starts to grab mine and Kelly's legs. We know we are in for an interesting trip.

I guess he has no idea what is going to happen, as we move into the chamber, he starts to grab our arms. When it goes completly dark he starts to scream.

Next thing I now he is full on grabbing onto me and has his head buried into my chest, he is still screaming. Now mind you, I have no small chest and am very a pretty low tank top and shorts. So he got a nice view I am sure. But I don't think he had a clue what he was doing. At one point he dropped his head lower so it was in my lap. But raised it again so it was back in my chest and clutched onto me. I had finger nail marks in my arm, for quite a while after this ride.

He remained this way until right about when the doors reopened, by now his daughter is telling him across me that she wants to ride again. It is now her favorite ride, etc. He says their is absolutely no way I will ride again.

He keeps apologizing to us over and over again after he was safely back on the ground. I don't think his daughter realizes every thing that happened since I was between the two of them. We wanted to buy the picture because I am sure it looked hilarious with him buried in my chest, but they wouldn't even show it on the screen.

In the end we told him that we would take his daughter on again to save him the trauma. She rode again and had an absolute blast. He kept apologizing and thanking us once we all got off the ride. But I am sure he truly didn't want us to see him ever again.

Becky

I am truly saddened by this whole mess that was created.

I have come to know great joy and sorrow in my life.

Hoping...praying...wishing for 17 years for a child, and finally getting the most perfect, loving, caring, wonderful little baby girl that anyone could ever hope for, was the best thing that ever happened to us.

Planning this trip to Disney World has been so much fun! All of this effort on my part is to instill magical memories that will last a lifetime.

I came across this thread by accident one day after reading a trip report and noticing the personalized tshirts that were worn on their vacation. I came to this thread to ask for help and get ideas, and I really appreciate all the help that I have received.

If I am the one to blame for this mess.. I am truly sorry..

Amy... so sorry for the pm that I sent you... it was an impulse thing that I did and did not realize how much of a devastating effect this would have on you and this whole thread.

Kate... thank you SO much for designing the tshirts for my family. I am truly grateful and I will be sure to let everyone know where I got them.

Many magical memories are waiting for my family.

Again... I am truly sorry for anything that I said or did. Believe me, I will no longer post on any other thread.

Hooray! Those are fantastic grades! Congratulations.

I got my grades for my 2 little classes as well:

Utilization of Children's Literature in the Classroom - A-
Library Computer and Reference Skills - A-

I was pretty pleased considering I've been out of college since 1991. Monday is when classes start for my next 2 classes. Just 4 more after these and I'll have my Media Specialist certification! Yea!

Congratulations!! :cheer2:

Tom,

You didn't do anything wrong!

Life is about being kind to the peoplein your life, of all types, helping eachother and showing care and concern. We do not always get it right as to when to speak and when not to. It is a challenge when we are hurt, I know.
I hope this mess has brought us these facts again.

People have so many things going on in their real lives, so much heartache day after day, some more than others. This is the internet! We need to remember that. The people on here can be kind and funny and caring... as far as the screen goes, but it is your family and friends that MATTER most.

Why should any of us add stress to our lives with this silliness?

Please don't feel like you cannot join in on the DIS board. There is a lot of info for you to gather for your trip. You just hit this thread at the wrong time. Up until recently this was the best thread on the internet and I sure hope everything works out for everyone. But please continue to use the DIS boards because they are the greatest for disney info.

PLEASE !!! STOP AND READ

I contacted Kate through PM regarding this mess. PLEASE...If you posted about this, please edit your post now so this will STOP right here! THANKS ALL!!! PLEASE continue with the regular chit chat.......

REMEMBER:

Miss Missy – yes – you did pm me but I am not going to go back and edit my posts – I made the mistake of doing that before and the person involved decided that since the posts had been changed that there was not accountability for her on the matter.

I sent a pm and she ignored it – no response at all to me – and I know she read it – I had it confirmed. Instead she continued to go on a posting spree and when people asked her in the thread to make amends – she just ignored the posts.

I still don’t understand how in this day and age someone would think it is appropriate to pm a picture of a bomb to someone – under any circumstances.

What good would a pm have done – it is my belief it would have once again been ignored and the situation pushed under the rug.



People have so many things going on in their real lives, so much heartache day after day, some more than others. This is the internet! We need to remember that. The people on here can be kind and funny and caring... as far as the screen goes, but it is your family and friends that MATTER most.

Why should any of us add stress to our lives with this silliness?

This is where you and I greatly differ on this opinion – I have actually become very good friends with a lot of people on this thread – we are planning vacations together, we communicate outside of the DIS and we laugh and cry together.

When one of our friends was hurt we rallied around her and the offending party made no effort to apologize or even come to any sort of understanding. Our friend was hurt and as a result so were we.

I have made the decision that I would rather be somewhere else than on this thread and I invited anyone who wanted to join to feel free. I didn’t name any names but I am sure the offending parties know who they are

I do respect that PLD came and very quickly made a public apology - I believe if this had been done sooner by others - this thread could have been saved.

It is actually the attitude that we are not all a big family and a bit of insensitivity that lead to the problems in this thread - I will be in a thread where we all know we are friends and family!!

julia & nicks mom,

I think you are too upset still to be able to grasp what happened. I will put it here and people can think what they want. I myself know that no one anytime in this 1st Marti mess meant any harm. What was said was taken out of context and had more to do with the comment itself and difference of opinions. Not an attack on Marti. No one else said they were offended.

The fact that I have replied to Lisa's posts alone marked me as a bad egg to you and others. You ignored my PM today; you did exactly what you blame Lisa for.

Yes, You have made it clear to ALL of us that you have your "click" of friends, you decide who is in and who is out, but this is not High School, we are grown ups, this is a message board, why are you selecting people and at that, you are selecting the people who agree with you. I don't think you realize how it looks from here.

Accountability? here:

Here is what happened from when Marti went off.

I'm sure she does Paul. And I'm sorry .. but I have read allong since post #1. Unfortunately, it's hard for me to keep things straigh as to what happened to whom etc.

Please Denise ... don't share anything you are not comfortable with. I would hate that! I was basically trying to share that a Guest Assistance Card is available and may help some. (I recently learned of it and was able to obtain one for use with Ben.)

And Paul, what's this???? "most of us are like an extended family here"
I guess you just don't consider me one of "most of us" ..........

Then…

Steamboat Marti
You have offended me for over a week now and I'm not going to sit back and take it any more. You are entitled to your opinion and I am entitled to mine. Raise your children in whatever religion you choose, however as a Christian I was offended by some of your comments. Also, some DH do buy gifts that people like. The last straw came today. If you weren't so caught up in your own life you would realize just how insensitive a recent post was.

You have been far too negative for my taste and like Shriva, you have killed my addiction. People that want to get a hold of me know how to reach me. It was fun while it lasted.
================================================== ======

Now after that mess Marti and things quieted down, all was ok, but all of a sudden, something I said became an issue 1 whole day PAGES later, after I said it?? you skipped all those pages of fun and went back to a post that was innocent. Now a you can't see a joke as joke and you get mad... and blast on the thread. You knew that would cause uproar, but you stated you were there to STOP them last week???

Um, the post I replied to below was to "bomb you with PM's" A JOKE dear girl a joke! How can you make that an issue????

================================================== ======

Amy -

someone did take her seriously - I logged on and got the message with a bomb in it

the server was busy of course and it took me five VERY long minutes to see what was going on - I did not think it was funny - it was very upsetting to me

I hear that your post prompted someone else to send you a "bomb" in your pm box

I am sick of the insensitivity and I am no longer posting here

I am starting a design thread for myself - you all can reach me in there

Why are you so vehemently sticking up for Lisa and bashing Kate? Your post makes makes it sound like Lisa is the one who PMd Kate the bomb. Do you know something I don't? I'd hate for anyone to get the wrong idea from your post.

ETA: and Miss Missy, I am not happy you quoted all those things about my son. I hope you will remove them, or I will ask Baloo too. It is not polite to quote negative things about my family when I didn't say them. Please do so immediately.

I am not involved in this in anyway but am curious -- Did Lisa try to PM Marti about the problem that started all of this? I know not one of you personally but it did seem that Lisa always had something to say about everything and most of the time it was negative. If she was having a bad time we could all sympathize with that as has been the case many times for others. We all have given comfort and support when needed to everyone on the thread.

And why would anyone make a joke of sending a bomb in a PM especially to someone they know is not too fond of them?

MissMissy I am usually for the underdog also but I just don't see any one person in this situation as the underdog or being picked on here.

I have enjoyed your post in the past and you are usually so upbeat and friendly and pleasurable to chat with. Sorry things have reached this point. I also moved to the other thread and I do not consider myself one of the in crowd. I am usually just a lurker but was greeted with the friendliest of responses. Hope all goes well here in the future.

Kate put this in public, ignored my PM and blew up something out of nothing. I feel it was done on purpose and I feel it was done to hurt others. And it did!

I am sticking up for Lisa because she didn't do anything wrong! Her question at that time was valid, innocent and you can see that in her post. Do you think we all know for sure who's got what going on with their kids and family in a post sooo BIG??? We dod the best we can! She asked in innocence AND with the mindset to give you information she thought would help you! She didn't deserve to be bashed for it. Paul started the bash, then Marti...

As you said SHE PM'd you to make sure you understood what happened Denise, and it was all ok... you said that yourself. I believe the religion comment is what Marti is REALLY mad about and even that is not fair and should have been PM'd. Marti's religion choices are her and Lisa's are hers... WHO CARES what each other does, why did Marti freak on that I do not know. Strange. :confused3

You all know I have been nothing but nice to ALL of you on the board, and it looks like once I replied to Lisa, it was over for me with your "click." Look back, none of you replied to anything I said after that, even you with the post I made about your 7th heaven KIDS! You "guys" have a relationship that we are not welcome into, lets face it. Sorry, but to me it really seems your click all knew what is going on by email, you all pounced, you left, you formed your own group. The people who were not "in" and didn't get the emails, well they just think Lisa and I are wrong and the followed you...

We are split now. Sad as it is. I thought you guys (click) were nice people, but you’re not the kind I want to chat with if you can be so mean to others.

I am sad that you fell into that Denise, I thought you were better than that.
I truly did care about you and yours, and others (click) on this board.

I never bashed you or anyone. And now you are stooping to bashing me? I said I settled it with Lisa via PM. Anything between Lisa and Me is between Lisa and me! My point was I was offended (you said nobody else was). You can be offended and not post it publicly.

My 2nd part was that you seem to really be bashing Kate and the "click". Well, I have never seen Kate or any of us not respond to anyone or be unwelcoming. In fact, it has been the opposite. I do not appreciate your comments about Kate. And I'm sorry I didn't respond to one post. Geez, imagine missing one in a thread of 22000.

Yes, You have made it clear to ALL of us that you have your "click" of friends, you decide who is in and who is out, but this is not High School, we are grown ups, this is a message board, why are you selecting people and at that, you are selecting the people who agree with you. I don't think you realize how it looks from here.

Accountability? here:

Here is what happened from when Marti went off.
================================================== =====

It’sLisa



Why specifically Rees??? (or something to that efffect)


mgkkgdm
I'm sure Denise has her reasons, you really need to pay attention to others when they post here. Most of us are like an extended family here.



Miss Missy


Huh? I don't get this?



ItsLisa



I'm sure she does Paul. And I'm sorry .. but I have read allong since post #1. Unfortunately, it's hard for me to keep things straigh as to what happened to whom etc.

Please Denise ... don't share anything you are not comfortable with. I would hate that! I was basically trying to share that a Guest Assistance Card is available and may help some. (I recently learned of it and was able to obtain one for use with Ben.)

And Paul, what's this???? "most of us are like an extended family here"
I guess you just don't consider me one of "most of us" ..........

Then…

Steamboat Marti
You have offended me for over a week now and I'm not going to sit back and take it any more. You are entitled to your opinion and I am entitled to mine. Raise your children in whatever religion you choose, however as a Christian I was offended by some of your comments. Also, some DH do buy gifts that people like. The last straw came today. If you weren't so caught up in your own life you would realize just how insensitive a recent post was.

You have been far too negative for my taste and like Shriva, you have killed my addiction. People that want to get a hold of me know how to reach me. It was fun while it lasted.
================================================== ======

Now after that mess Marti and things quieted down, all was ok, but all of a sudden, something I said became an issue 1 whole day PAGES later, after I said it?? you skipped all those pages of fun and went back to a post that was innocent. Now a you can't see a joke as joke and you get mad... and blast on the thread. You knew that would cause uproar, but you stated you were there to STOP them last week???

Um, the post I replied to below was to "bomb you with PM's" A JOKE dear girl a joke! How can you make that an issue????

================================================== ======

Amy -

someone did take her seriously - I logged on and got the message with a bomb in it

the server was busy of course and it took me five VERY long minutes to see what was going on - I did not think it was funny - it was very upsetting to me

I hear that your post prompted someone else to send you a "bomb" in your pm box

I am sick of the insensitivity and I am no longer posting here

I am starting a design thread for myself - you all can reach me in there

She must of been kidding, what type of fool would actually send a PM like that?

It is clear there is a split here; you have pushed some good people away... for that I wish you would see for yourself.

Anyway, as long as people here know the story and realize this is a
pi&&ing match is all. They can do, as they want. I am sickened by it all. I hope sometime I can look at this and laugh, right now I am discussed that people don't open their arm to each other and be kind to ALL not just the ones within your "kind."

Having always been one for the underdog... my weakness is I get crazy when I see people mistreated by others. And that sparked me here. I am sticking up for someone who NOONE helped out Lisa!
I tried to stay out of this, but how condescending and rude for you to say that Julia & Nicks mom doesn't grasp what happened and that she's mistreating others. She's never been anything but nice and helpful on this thread. I suppose in your world someone isn't allowed to feel uneasy receiving a bomb in their private mail :rolleyes: . There are lots of unstable people on the Internet, as evidenced by this thread, so IMHO, she is perfectly within her rights to be upset. But, since you have such a firm grasp on the situation, why don't you tell us what your role was in it.

Just because people didn't post that they were offended doesn't mean they weren't. People handle conflict in their own ways, and many choose to avoid it. I found her catholic comment extremely offensive (and I'm Presbyterian, btw) but I didn't post because I thought ignoring her post would be best for the thread. When Marti posted I realized I wasn't the only person who felt that comment was insensitive, but I still chose to ignore it. Now I see it's been edited out completely in favor of pixie dust. In fact many of her posts have been edited so it's difficult for many people to understand what is going on, and impossible for anyone who didn't see it to understand my feelings.

I don't plan to spend any more of my time on this, but one last thing. I don't blame you for sticking up for someone you consider a friend. I would do the same thing. But for someone who used to go by the username of peacefulgirl, I'm really surprised that you would break the peace on the new thread by bringing this discussion there when it was perfectly clear it wasn't wanted there. Perhaps you're not so peaceful after all.

OK .... this is just crazy and has gotten way out of hand!

I was NOT going to post about the Marti / Skunka thing ... but since she has posted to the forum, I guess this will never end until it goes public.

For the record... Lisa has never tried to respond to me. Either in this thread or in a PM

That's correct. I didn't think a public form was the right place to bring it up. You never PM'd me to discuss it. For the record, you have never TOLD me specifically what it was that offended you.

This is what you wrote:
ItsLisa,

Do ... I offended you HOW? You mention you are a Christian and were offended by some of my comments. What comments could have POSSIBLY offended you??? I told a story about me and my DH. He is Catholic and I am Jewish. I wanted our child to be raised Jewish? How can that possibly be offensive? I did remove the post hoping that wouldn't further fuel the problem. The only thing I can think of that MAY have been construed as offensive was the last line were I said something like *I wanted him raised Jewish - not Catholic* The "not Catholic" part was only mean to reference the other religion --- it was not a negative in ANY way. No where else in the post did I mention the other religion.

If if was something else I said, than out with it already! I'm not here to play guessing games. You have had no problem dragging me through the mud on this board .... so let's make it done with!


The question to Denise was NOT meant to offend. I posted already that I wanted to bring up the GAC and I apparently did it awkwardly. I did apologize to Denise. I NEVER in my wildest dreams thought I would offend her. Apparently I did ... and I have apologized to her.

Now ... your husband spent the better part of a day or so ripping into me with his little snide remarks. I took offense, but never posted about it. I tried to let it slide. I chalked it up to the good natured humor and SARCASM we have ALL used in posting! What's sad is now I *know* it was not meant good naturedly. It was admitted. And there was NO APOLOGY to me! Am I sitting here demanding an apology? No, I just wanted to move one. Apparently neither of you do.

Kate, you did PM me about the situation, but I had already PM'd you. Marti and Paul felt the need to "take it to the boards". I never said ANYTHING derogatory to EITHER of them. They same cannot be said.

About Kate and the bomb post. Yes, it was me. Before you GASP, this is being taken totally out of context. We -- meaning MANY of us -- have posted images of the stupidest things we were talking about. Most recently, there was a post about riding TOT. Miss Missy posted a picture of a bullet proof vest. I thought it was sarcastic and funny. The OP of the TOT story (sorry, it's lost right now and I am NOT chancing another server error -- maybe it's Becky???) was RIGHTLY freaked out when it was happening. I think in posting she was laughing in retrospect.

Now, the PM to Kate. She posted that she had cleared her PM box. I believe it was Miss Missy who posted after that something like "let's all bomb her with PMs" (again - I do not have the exact text)

this is EXACTLY what I PM'd Kate

SUBJECT: You will be assimilated ....

MESSAGE:
I think we were TOLD to do this!
bombs away!

http://blogs.salon.com/0003174/images/bomb.jpg



Now, taken out of context, I can see how getting a bomb in your PM could have been taken as a threat. I made the mistake of assuming Kate was reading and was up with us.

A bomb threat? not at all.

This is a PUBLIC APOLOGY to Kate. I am sorry that I sent it. It was never intended to be anything but a stupid "funny" to fill you PM box.



What's been most clear to me is that I am being RAILROADED! No one has said a THING to Paul for his mean spirited posts to me. It seems to be very easy to pin all blame on me. And that's exactly what is being done.

I welcome comments about this from anyone. I can't believe another thread has been started -- as if I am some sort of infection you need to get away from!

I am not involved in this in anyway but am curious -- Did Lisa try to PM Marti about the problem that started all of this? I know not one of you personally but it did seem that Lisa always had something to say about everything and most of the time it was negative. If she was having a bad time we could all sympathize with that as has been the case many times for others. We all have given comfort and support when needed to everyone on the thread.

And why would anyone make a joke of sending a bomb in a PM especially to someone they know is not too fond of them?

MissMissy I am usually for the underdog also but I just don't see any one person in this situation as the underdog or being picked on here.

I have enjoyed your post in the past and you are usually so upbeat and friendly and pleasurable to chat with. Sorry things have reached this point. I also moved to the other thread and I do not consider myself one of the in crowd. I am usually just a lurker but was greeted with the friendliest of responses. Hope all goes well here in the future.

Kate put this in public, ignored my PM and blew up something out of nothing. I feel it was done on purpose and I feel it was done to hurt others. And it did!

Missy,

I never bashed you or anyone. And now you are stooping to bashing me? I said I settled it with Lisa via PM. Anything between Lisa and Me is between Lisa and me! My point was I was offended (you said nobody else was). You can be offended and not post it publicly.

My 2nd part was that you seem to really be bashing Kate and the "click". Well, I have never seen Kate or any of us not respond to anyone or be unwelcoming. In fact, it has been the opposite. I do not appreciate your comments about Kate. And I'm sorry I didn't respond to one post. Geez, imagine missing one in a thread of 22000.

You need to step back and examine all the facts before posting and jumping down people's throats. And please remove the quotes about my son. Not cool at all.

Denise

Sorry you feel the way you do.

It is all about who said what, how and when, now it is out there the way it went, why is that a problem now?

We posted pages and pages last night, having fun. Most funny posts. I did not see so many replies, we all catch up and comment, none of that happened as usual, if it was not us, I know you would of caught up. We are not treated the same, its so obvious.

Missy,

Grow up. I went to bed early last night, got home from work around 3:30pm. Went to the last page, saw the post. Good grief, I am so sorry that I didn't get up at 5am and read all the posts from last night and respond to them. If you look at my posting history, I tend to catch up at night. Well, it is just now night! I'm amazed you feel the need to single me out to slam me when I have NEVER posted anything but nice things to you and EVERYONE else here.

Lisa and I settled our differences. I don't know why you insist on jumping all over me when all I did was post about how I was upset what happened to Kate. You did the same for Lisa. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black. You must be very insecure to need validation on every post from us. Maybe we just hadn't had time to read them yet!!!!!

Get over it and grow up. You seem to be stirring the pot now, not me.

here is the long and short of it -

Over the last few weeks, Lisa’s posts and her tone have offended people – and I received several pms about this. Marti was the only person who actually said something to Lisa about it and Marti and Paul left.

Lisa pm’ed asking what I thought about it. I sent Lisa a pm detailing to her their feelings and let her know that this was not just a problem Marti and Paul had and I offered to mediate the situation.
She did not respond to my offer and started posting with a vengeance in order to gloss over what was going on - and also edited a lot of her posts so others could not fully grasp what was going on. Posts were made in the thread asking her to try to make amends but she chose to ignored my attempt to help as well as the pleads in the thread.
Then last night she sent me a bomb in my pm –
it was titled - you will be assimilated - then said I think we were TOLD to do this
then there was a picture of a bomb

I was freaked out - and the server was busy so I did not understand and was obviously very shaken - as I had never been anything but nice and had tried to help her out but I had been pretty blunt with her recently about some things so I really didn't know where she stood.

I finally got on the thread and saw that MissMissy had said let's bomb her pm box - even though I saw that she was trying to be funny - we did not have the proper relationship for her to do this to me and it didn't change the five minutes of panic that I went through. I worked in a school that had a bomb squad on property for over a week b/c someone had threatened to blow it up - I never find bombs funny - my husband was very angry.

Today Amy posted that she hoped no one had taken miss missy seriously as it would freak her out to get a bomb in her pm to which princessleighsdaddy immediately sent her a pm that said Kaboom.

That was my breaking point - we had tried repeatedly to discreetly ask Lisa to play nice - I had pmed her and yet she refused to respond and that is when I posted that I was starting a new thread as I was no longer comfortable in the old thread

Miss Missy came on and asked everyone to delete any evidence of the trouble. I responded that I would not b/c the last time we did this - it gave the offending party an out and I was not willing to do this again

I never mentioned Lisa by name in an effort to allow her to gracefully bow out or make ammends - although I do realize that anyone paying attention would know who I was talking about.

Miss Missy then came on with her post- telling me that I was mean and just blew things out of proportion - and announced that Lisa was who I was talking about and that me and my clique were on a witch hunt - well - I would like to know who my clique is since I have designed over 1000 shirts for people and have NEVER told someone no. (including Lisa)
And I try to know everyone's names and keep track of who isn't around and check on them - (okay that was me defending myself - sorry!)

Miss Missy did not bother to get any facts - believe me - I know all the facts of what went when on here - I have had discussions with a LOT of people about the best way to handle this - it was not with a light heart that I came to this decision.

Lisa and MissMissy are choosing to only present their side and are not acknowledging that any of us had the right to be offended - and are now starting to attack a lot of people - including Denise - who I think all of us would agree is the sweetest person we have ever encountered.

I am very sorry that this happened to this thread b/c I think we all have a great time together - but I am pretty sure we can all continue on the new thread and be the same family we always were - without the negativity.

Shocked and saddened don't even begin to describe how I'm feeling tonight .:( I could NOT believe my eyes when I logged on this evening.I received an email from Kate and then headed here to Creative DISigns.My first reaction was ....well picture Clark Griswald in Christmas vacation when all he got for a bonus was the Jelly of the Month club! But I stepped away had a shot of the Captain and a big chunk of fudge and I'm ready to give y'all my feelings on this entire situation.Now let's just hope the DISboards stay up long enough for me to post all this. I have no idea what Admin is up to with that,no one has informed the Mods about the trouble.

I am VERY,VERY upset and hurt...Hurt that no one but Kate and MissMissy came to me with what was going on.It has taken me 3 days to piece together everything. I am the moderator of Creative DISigns. I am her to HELP everyone when they have a problem. I might not be on the board everyday but I am online checking my email almost EVERYDAY! I have been a DIS Moderator for almost 7 years now and when the MONSTER Tshirt thread started on TPAS,OMG it was soooooooooooooo refreshing. A group of Internet people getting along,sharing and laughing together. I hadn't seen anything like that on the DIS in a lot of years. I know the CB blows up every now and then,there's rifts and bannings,people leave because friends are gone. I thought the DDA was far and above that. I crowed to the WM about all of you.How wonderfully everyone got along,caring and sharing ideas,freely. Everyone was there to make others happy,to get joy in creating by giving and receiving. Then it turned into more.Friendships.Some tighter than others but that is NOTHING new on the Internet realm of friends scale! If you spend ANY time on Internet boards you see that but the Disney Design Addicts have always always been welcoming to any one new.

This board was specifically created for me because of all of YOU! There are a few here that are special. Stand out from others.That is a fact of Internet life...if you're jealous of that either get over it or don't come play here at the DDA. I wanted EVERYONE welcomed here...I think MOST of that feel that way.But this is the Internet. Things get misconstrued...rumors fly....geez it's total BS! Either be HONEST...stand by what you've said...don't wimp out and edit posts...that's TOTAL BS!!! I was actually HAPPY to see y'all letting it rip on this chit chat thread because I was FINALLY seeing what was happening by the parties involved.

This place would not be what it is without Kate.Some of you may love her some of you might find her a PITA ,but it's a fact.She has given her talents freely to so many,keeps up with everyone,always has a nice word.She is one in a million and I'm proud to call her friend.

I fought tooth and nail for the T-shirt thread,I moved it to Crafts as I thought that was a place the designing could grow but it didn't work. When Admin. decided they wanted to sort of redesign the entire DIS Boards,a moderator could only have 1 board to moderate...I had 3 and had to choose ONE...ONLY one...it was killing me. I felt like I had to choose between my children.WMs knew how much work I put into the designing threads, how attached I was to the DDA,how wonderful it was all running but my love was TPAS, they let the T-shirt thread go back to TPAS and become a sub board.Well I got raked over the coals big time by other Mods on that one. I resigned with a very heavy heart from the DIS.But to my surprise the WM wanted ME back! I have loved and been devoted to the DIS and sharing Disney information with people planning trips for many years. I'm a good Moderator or I wouldn't have been asked back and given this unique opportunity to foster and care for this wonderful community that has become the Disney Design Addicts.

So I'm going to Moderate.

I'm closing this chit chat thread.The magic, the fun is gone from there. I hoped it would go on and on but it unfortunately it hasn't.

Everyone needs to either have their spats in PMs or fogetta about it. :smooth:

I won't have crap dragged onto any of these threads.No barbs or innuendo by anyone about other things meaning "troubles" with other posters. None. Notta. Zip. I will delete it if I think it's one.

Don't be afraid to be sarcastic.It can be done gently and be very funny. This little face might help. :rolleyes:

Please don't be offended if not everyone response to something you say.

Remember you're not going to like or agree with everyone.

Lastly I hate the word clique! I get sick of hearing that word on the Internet ...a clique is a exclusive group of people.Lord knows the DDA has welcomed EVERYONE with open arms! This is NOT a clique it's a club. An association of people with a common interest.


So people let's get back to having a good time. Start a new thread,post on another thread...we have an entire BOARD to play on here!!! http://www.disboards.com/forumdisplay.php?f=105


This is a fun loving,pixie dust induced place.Let's keep it that way!!! :flower: :wizard: :cool1: :sunny: :banana: ::MickeyMo ::MinnieMo
