If you think there is something going on around the site that an admin needs to know about, by all means report it. But please, actually report it. Don't send some vague message with no details and expect us to guess if it is actually an issue or not.
If you have evidence to go along with what you are reporting, i.e. - graphics, screen shots, links, etc. please forward them also. It helps no one and only slows down any processes if we get the information slower than a morphine drip...
... I may have to steal that for telemarketers.
uh, well yes and No , yes because its how you feel and no because they would more then likely call the police and say you threatened them
Wow. Is it golf season already?
You know, I like that response.
Although, I'm not sure anyone who receives it would.
I know I've said this before, but it never ceases to to torque my lugnuts when I see another example...
...a photographer on the modeling site - supposed professional artist, simply pimping nude photos to try and get someone to notice his work. And when I say pimping, that is what I mean.
"New nudes of (model's name)! Check them out! She is so hot!"
Really? That is all you have to say about your work? The naked woman is hot? I guess looking at the photos that are poorly lit, out of focus and really not well done at all, that is about their only redeeming quality. Nipples, a hint of bush and obviously no direction from the photographer because she is putting so little emotion into the whole thing. It is porn, dude. You just made some porn. You paid her to be naked, she did it for the money and it didn't matter to her so she put a half-hearted effort into making "art."
And the model isn't even what I would consider.. hot. Eye of the beholder, obviously, but she has the body of a 12-yr old - no hips, no curves and weighs about 85-lbs. If not for the age wrinkles from her (I would assume) smoking addiction, I would question if she were even old enough for this shoot.
I don't know how much she got paid, but judging from the motel room you used as the studio, I'm guessing the photos were a secondary priority anyway...

Seems legitimate... ha! I will definitely be blindly extending Net30 to a company where the vice president emails solicitations from an Earthlink email account...
Amazing how the spammers can find you, but it seems like all the advertising in the world can't get you real customers at times.
I got an email about a job offer from a legit company a few months back so I called them and the owner was confused about it. She then proceed to tell me that her account was hacked not long before that and if I needed a job she would hire me...
But I would have to fly to Texas and it would be to clean the latrines and offices. I told her no thanks.
Yeah... I've never known a janitorial job to pay for moving expenses...
...yes it is.
Scenes like that make me want to hug my kids tighter...
...sure. I'm buying it...
...looking around the modeling site at other photographers' portfolios. It is amazing how they try and pass-off bad pornographic styles snapshots as professional photography...
...while most of what I've done, much through some mind sweating concern over the creativity, concept and design I still consider snapshotty and unworthy.
Yet this site declined my application for an account twice because my photos didn't meet their requirements.
Apparently I should have just hired some hookers to pose with dildoes...
...in thumbnail view your avatar looks like a woman being stabbed with a big green stick...
...I don't mean to sound bitter... but I work my ass off every day. So does Morri. We're doing our best to keep a small business running and surviving in a horrible economic climate.
It is a struggle some days. We look at the numbers and think, we must be crazy for doing this. But one of my goals with this business has always been to create jobs and put people to work.
So I get frustrated by what I see. When people we've hired simply don't want to work or go about their jobs in such an unprofessional and unappreciative manner.
It is even more frustrating when people I know that have been living on unemployment for months pass up job opportunities, and post daily facebook updates about what golf course they just checked into, the road trip they just went on with the sole intent of partying or how drunk they got last night out at the bar...
Yet, I work every day not just to survive, but to watch the money I earn float away to the state coffers to pay for all of that.
Agreed! (And I don't even get unemployment. )
Tell those idiots, (yes! idiots) to stop screwing around and get the job done properly... or ELSE! You need to explain how you feel to them, as you ARE the boss.
They're all gone. It's me and Morri now, and a friend I call on for contract work. It's good for him - he lost his job but said he would be willing to sweep floors if it keeps him working.
We need more people like that.
I'm newly unemployed. I'll work my ass off for ya!
I'm in total agreement. I know people that don't deserve it getting government assistance and also Facebooking about the expensive dinners out and designer purses they're buying. That really pisses me off.
I also don't understand people that expect to be given top dollar jobs or nothing else. Too many people would rather no job than an expectation that's too high. When I got out of the Marines I took a minimum wage job until I could get better. I worked there while I was interviewing for management positions- so I at least was able to pay for all the groceries in the meantime with my small paycheck. To me that made more sense. I had something coming in for those 6 weeks it took to land the better job. I always look at that as a proud moment in my life. People that knew me in the Marines saw me at work and for a moment I felt be-littled in that position while they were working in awesome positions already after being discharged... but would sitting on my ass have been more honorable?
People should work and be proud whatever they are doing. In my opinion all jobs are honorable because it's honest money and effort (hopefully effort, right?). In all that you do you should put your best foot forward and be proud of your work.
I agree with you about people who are lounge lizards and live off of the tax payers, but I have been in the unenployment and welfare lines myself and it's not easy to have this stigmata, as a welfare mama, now I did have a part time job so I was working and paying back into the very system that was helping me (in FLorida if you work under 32 hours b/c of company cut backs you can collect pro-rated unemployment). Any way when I would pay for grocery's people would roll there eyes and make the snide remarks when I would use my wick checks, and food stamp card. Just because of people who sit on thier ass like this and live off the Gov't and tax payers who do work hard.
Now I feel a bit guilty because I was planning on using some of my summer unemployment money for my garden :(
But I get what you mean. My ex was (probably still is) unemployed and kept passing up places to work because of stupid reasons. It's silly to live like that. :/
At least I know that my unemployment situation coming up will be just for the summer. I get my job back and life goes back to normal.
No, no.. Bijou and Abby, don't misunderstand me - I'm talking about the people who get the unemployment and would rather not work. Months and months of unemployment and not looking for jobs. Like a batter with a 3-0 count is always going to watch that 4th pitch go by unless it's a beach-ball they can pound over the fence. They won't take a job unless it's THE JOB they're waiting for - and watch other opportunities go by, happy to collect their next UE check and loaf their days away.
The country's economy is still in shambles. Morri said it a while back; the economy isn't some mysterious creature that lives in the pockets of rich people. YOU are the economy and when you sit back and soak off the government, you're damaging the economy and making it harder for everyone else that is working.
It's time people start strapping on the helmet and doing what needs to be done instead of hoping someone else will.
The moment I got pregnant working at the daycare, they made up every reason to fire me. I couldn't chase 24 kids alone anymore and I refused to be alone with that many kids that were very spoiled and very abusive when put in time out. So, they let me go.... I had to resort to unemployment because I was starting to show in my pregnancy and no one would hire a pregnant woman here.
Did I like it? .... Not really.
I felt like dirt because I could provide for myself or my baby. I had to completely depend on my guy for the most part, which isn't bad, but I am a very independent person. If I want someone, I want to get it with MY money. I want to EARN it. And I couldn't for a while.
Now that my little bit is here.... I am back to work. :) I actually start back working this MONDAY!
People that abuse the system and complain out lack of jobs out there make me ill. I went out there to places. I introduced myself and I got a job within two weeks of looking. Is it a fancy job with a great salary? No... But its a job. Its MY money. I EARNED it. I can go buy my kid anything she needs right now. And it feels pretty damn awesome. :)
I know a few of "those people", and even though they are my friends it sickens me how flip an issue this has become to them. I offer them work when I'm buried under, and they respond with, "Well, I kinda have plans to go to the beach today." I guess I'm paying for their day off, one way or another.
...you lived with a computer nerd for 10 years. The fact that you still can't manage the complexities of "drag and drop" in Windows XP isn't anyones fault but your own.
Honestly, if anything it's just further evidence that you didn't care, listen or pay any attention to anything but what was important to you.
[ /rant ]
...I also hit my head on a steel cabinet door and got head-butted in the nose today. What is this? A fucking Monday?
Passive aggressive crap. I hate knowing that someone who says that they love you is intentionally trying to hurt you.
And by you I mean me. But by me I just mean in general and not in reference to you, but I'm relating to what you're saying.
Maybe you hit my head on a steel cabinet door.
...every time I read a statement like that, I just have to say, "Well, you don't know me."
Perspective is an amazing thing...
Just discovered I lost a wheel cover and bent a rim today. Stupid, horrible roads up in Niagara Falls...
Makes me wish I still had my truck...
...life keeps me guessing.
All I know is I am who I am. I can't be someone different. I have tried - yes indeed. Failed experiments in reinventing who I am, not for someone else but for me.
Now I need to keep two things in mind:
1. Be true to myself.
2. Take care of me first.
I think if my past should have taught me anything - any one lesson I have failed to grasp time and time again - no one will look out for me as much as I should. I need to do more of it.
The pickup line, My lip has an "owie." Will you kiss it and make it better?
I was on my lips "painful" has. You can improve it, or kiss it?
I need to use that one on my next trip to China...

Ok, those are all well and good, but how about some of those abstract things we say... like, for instance.. pick-up lines?

Would you touch me so I can tell my friends I've been touched by an angel?
Because you touch me, I can tell my friends, I have been an angel?
Your daddy must have been a baker, because you've got a nice set of buns.
Since you have already a good set of bread, your father, you need to pan.
