Looks like some of my comments in my December entry offended. I’ve been kicked out of one of the Yahoo! groups, ostensibly for failing to complete a swap by the end of January, but I suspect that was not the REAL reason. Oh, gosh, I think I’m supposed to be all upset and heartbroken. Let’s see, hmmmmm……nope!! Her group, her right! Plus she actually did me a favor by booting me, since that particular group, as well as another she moderates, were at the top of my list to drop the next time I cleaned up my list memberships. As far as I was concerned, both groups were a lot of noise and not much substance, so I went ahead and left the other one as well. Now my inbox will be a little more static-free, yippee!
As far as that swap went, I bundled up the GTCs I received and sent them on to the people who were supposed to receive mine. I expect they will enjoy the GTCs much more than I, because I wasn’t that impressed. One set wasn’t bad, but the second set showed no sense of composition principles at all. They were just a mish-mash.
This whole episode brings up a point. I WILL say what I wish in my journal. I WILL express opinions. They are my opinions, and frankly are probably not worth the electrons they are transmitted on to anyone but me. No one’s being forced to read my LiveJournal, and if they choose to read it they take the risk of not liking what they read. So if you’re still reading, remember, you read at your own risk.
Heaven knows I have LOTS of experience being regarded as a bitch for my opinions and my way of doing things, and I’m quite accustomed to being disliked. A lot of that is due to not being willing, at my age, to take a whole lot of crap. From anyone.
