Curses! Foiled again!! (Subtitle: Once more around the block)

People get so touchy about stuff here. You try to gently nudge a user in the proper direction, and they act like you tried to push them in front of a bus. But I keep trying, because of new users, such as one I talked to Wednesday via PM several times, that were very appreciative of what I told them. myLot needs a new thing on our profiles: "You have been blocked by (number of) users." I guess they want to make sure they get the last word in.

Always good to help new people, but as the old saying goes...you can lead a horse to water... I'm still watching the news and it's getting boring as Trump is having lunch and the feed from obamas speech at andrews was cut

@topffer BBC...I think they were all dependent on a pool feedat least that's what the BBC said when Obamas footage was cut to Trump signing some staff orders.

Wow - touchy is right. You can try to help, but some people just aren't gonna listen.

It is good to try and help new people but some people just don't want help and don't want to listen. You tried. They will learn soon enough when discussion after discussion gets deleted!! Yes it would be interesting to see how many user have blocked you...

I'm tired of all those people out here who throw s*** out but then they don't want to have discussions about it. They have no problems being pejorative. I guess that's just life
