Posting guidelines update

Also I am pretty sure that shop-et-al is female...it's just that what she posted can be interpreted in numerous ways.

Oy. Why can't y'all people forget your differences and squabbles as quickly as you have forgotten Foghorn Leghorn? When you watched that as a kid, didn't you ever feel glad that this was just a cartoon and no big, crazy chicken could reach out through the picture screen and pat you on the head with their oversized, scraggly, smelly wing?

*Shakes head sadly. Wonders if cartoon watching should be mandatory curriculum for potential mystery shoppers and forum members.*

I hope I didn't offend anyone. And Spicy and I don't have any squabbles or differences that I know of. I think maybe you were addressing someone else.

Us and we would indicate that he thinks he is a mystery shopper. Don't you actually have to complete shops to qualify?

Ohhhh..... Nods head. Were you thinking only of yourself and spicy1? I was thinking more of this thread and this forum.

And, just like that, there is disagreement about whether different views and squabbles exist in this forum.

No, that's why I wrote "I think maybe you were addressing someone else." That being said, when one posts something directly after someone else's post, it appears that they were responding to the previous post.
Mmm?

Frostbite Falls is more enlightening.

It's not, actually, that Shot-et-al was wondering if you were ....thinking only.....it's that Shot-et-al would like to make a larger contribution of consideration. Afterall, that's why we're here, on this forum, to have a larger impact on the world at large.
It gave me the impression he was speaking for the forum. In case any new member reads this and has an inkling of doubt, he does not.

That might be why some of us are here, for sure, but not all, LOL. And sometimes words fall on deaf ears (like trying to eliminate squabbles and differences of opinion on the forum...
Yes Lisa, but I thought the forum was mainly for shoppers and would-be shoppers to share ideas and learn from each other, with the occasional contribution from MSC reps. I am not understanding the presence of that person in the forum.

No disagreement that I noticed. It's obvious that there are different views and squabbles existing in the forum.
When is something going to be done about the troll?. Now he is pulling up five week old posts in the Member Introductions just to increase his own post count. It is obvious he is up to no good and his interests are not in helping any mystery shoppers. Right now the fourth entry about him on Google is a link to Rip Off Reports.

Errr, I have been absent from this thread for a while. I thought the "large appendage" was an ego. But, I have not been able to figure out who it refereed to. I need wine!

We have members acting like trolls and trolls acting like the owner of the forum. Who'd a thunk it.

Did you read the post that mentioned both appendage and Foghorn Leghorn? If not, you can scroll back. That information can be used in a web search. Assuming that you have limited the wine and are sober enough to type, you can quickly find information about Foghorn Leghorn. Once, PaulinMI posted a link in this forum to an overview of Foghorn Leghorn.

And, in order to avoid any misunderstanding, were you thinking that Foghorn Leghorn was a reference to anything/anyone besides himself/itself? If so, why were you thinking that?

PaulinMI, I hereby nominate you to teach the mandatory coursework in cartoons. You know that you will have to start with the basics. So far, they know maroon. But there is so much more..... grinning smiley

Hey now. I know me some Foghorn Leghorn, Wile E. Coyote, Road Runner and Bugs Bunny. My favorite is actually Pepe Le Pew. I have a plush of him in my kitchen wearing a chef's toque and an apron that says Kiss Zee Chefsmiling smiley

I accept the challenge. Might take me a bit to organize and get started. Stay Tooned.

I must say that I support the less newbie communication concept. I guess I am still confused as to why MSers help newbies so much. Do Ford and GM have forums to help Toyata produce and market better cars? Why do MSers (ICs in business for themselves) give encouragement and advice to other MSers ( competing ICs in business for themselves)? I mean, i understand why the MSCs like this.... more qualifued shoppers = less pay per shop. But as MSers all we are doing is creating competition and driving down the pay on our own shops.
