Being a Bad Connection

It is all downhill from here like what the arrow in the accompanying photo shows. LOL!

Wrote awhile back that I wanted to be a bad PPer . Well, a good part of that would be being a bad connection. We have seen our share of awful connections so let me count the ways...

I'd post in your profile page something along the lines of 'Connected! Please connect back!', uhmmm... yeah... talk about being desperate! True story, back in the 'b' site, a newbie, connected with me and then threatened to disconnect if I didn't connect back. He wrote it in my profile page. I force choked him using the power of the dark side of the force... I never heard from him again.

Back to being a bad connection, the icing on the cake for that 'I connected with you, connect back with me' comment is that I didn't actually connect with you. I didn't even read a single post from you. Bad!

I'd also use a fake profile pic of an alluring lady even though I'm actually balding, forty something, with a beer belly, and living in my parent's basement. I'd use different pics of the same girl in my posts to get the male population of this site to view and comment on my posts. Talk about false advertising!!! Again, back in the 'b' site, this worked like a charm. I doubt if it will work here, but I'm willing to try. LOL!

I'd read your post and leave a comment that is totally unrelated or something that personally attacks both you and your post. Either that or I'll leave a message about how the sister of the aunt of the cousin of the grandmother of the hotdog guy in stadium where the cousin of the friend of my friend got to earn enough dead presidents to make a down payment on a nice car of her choice.

Hhhmmmm... just for kicks, I'd report your posts and comments as inappropriate. Let's see if that goes well...

So how do you become a worthy connection? Do you consider yourself one or are you a bad connection?

I can definitely identify with what you say about bad connections. I had a view just like you when I was on "BB." Fortunately, most of my connections are very good on "PP."

I think a lot of us seen that at the b site a lot lol. But you would not get very far here with that stuff

allen0187 wrote on October 30, 2015, 11:51 PM

True. PP is all about being involved in a great community! Can't say the same for the 'b' site.

allen0187 wrote on October 30, 2015, 11:53 PM

Agreed. PPPers ae more disciplined than most fo the members of the 'b' site. One infraction here in PP and it is 'So long!' and it is justified. The 'b' site just doesn't do as well.

Paulie wrote on October 31, 2015, 2:43 AM

There never was any community on the "b" site judging from the few comments I received.

markgraham wrote on October 31, 2015, 10:17 AM

I was a newbie on the "B" site and no one read my posts and when I went back to see if any one read anything of mine since still no views. I did print out my posts from there and when they go 'pop' I can still have my posts even for myself.

I think the questionable tactics you've enumerated here drag down any site that allows them to happen. Thankfully, Persona Paper doesn't tolerate such nonsense -- in fact, I've often thought of PP as the "anti-b" site. In some respects, this may be why our member numbers aren't as high as we'd like them to be, but I'd rather have the community we do than a bunch of tricksters who would come here to disrupt and be selfish.

I support Persona Paper because I respect the value that is placed on doing things correctly, on being fair and square without gimmickry. From the beginning of my journey here, I have enjoyed the community support and spirit.

Finally, I don't think of people's actions or inactions as good or bad. Life happens. Each of us gives what we have in us with the time available to us.

True story. Even though I have not posted at Bubblews since February (?) I still have ransom people connecting with me. I got over there every so often and block them.

WordChazer wrote on October 31, 2015, 2:51 PM

You missed out the bit about leaving 'nice post!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!*^%Y$%%%%%$£"%& **************' comments.

WordChazer wrote on October 31, 2015, 2:54 PM

I'm STILL getting spammed out of my gourd by fakes over there. Even though I'm there several times a week and keep up my posts and comments they still want to follow me. I'm thinking they're ectoplasm or something nasty, slimy and unspeakable.

DWDavisRSL wrote on October 31, 2015, 3:34 PM

You seem to know an awful lot about how to be a bad connection. The detail of the planning involved makes one wonder, hmm.

On another note, are you telling me the beautiful Swedish blond volleyball player I met on the B might not really be Swedish, or a blond, or play volleyball?

allen0187 wrote on October 31, 2015, 10:40 PM

Those are very appropriate words - 'ectoplasm', 'slimy', 'nasty' - considering it is Halloween!

allen0187 wrote on October 31, 2015, 10:41 PM

Activity there is from slim to none!

allen0187 wrote on October 31, 2015, 10:44 PM

It takes one to know one - LOL!

The Swedish volleyball player is actaully a 42-year old 'man' living in the basement of his parent's house! LOL!

allen0187 wrote on October 31, 2015, 10:44 PM

oh yeah... 'Nice post!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!*^%Y$%%%%%$£"%& **************'

allen0187 wrote on October 31, 2015, 10:45 PM

Curious as to why you block them. Do you still post there msiduri ?

allen0187 wrote on October 31, 2015, 10:55 PM

Well said Feisty56 !!!

Well said...

msiduri wrote on November 1, 2015, 12:18 AM

No. I have not posted there since about February.

crowntower wrote on November 1, 2015, 3:01 AM

Hahahahahhahahaha!!!! This post seems hilarious but if I read it deeply there is a hurt and desperate soul wanting to received the same heart that you have given in every person you connected with. That's why you connected with me. But I felt a little sad when I have read that you disconnected with me. Maybe that is why I never read your activities in my "recent activity" page. Anyway hoping to be connected again. But even though you did that I still read your post everytime I have an internet connection. Damn! Never thought you feel this bad here at persona. Hope you are okay now. May God heal your pain in Jesus name, Amen. aja!

BarbRad wrote on November 1, 2015, 4:43 AM

I had plenty of those connections on the B site. I never connected back to any of them. I don't believe I've seen any on this site.

markgraham wrote on November 1, 2015, 10:34 AM

Well said. I wrote on that site for I thought it was a way to share my thoughts, I thought someone would read them.

AliCanary wrote on November 1, 2015, 11:13 AM

Ha ha ha! I laughed my butt off at this. I remember all those stupid accounts at Bubblews that had beautiful Asian women as profile pics. You would think half the members were supermodels, lol

DWDavisRSL wrote on November 1, 2015, 4:29 PM

Next you'll be telling me he played the tuba in his high school band.

allen0187 wrote on November 1, 2015, 6:13 PM

Yup! Supermodels who have no modelling gigs and who have nothing better to do than sit in front of the computer and type out what they had for breakfast in a post with really bad grammar!

allen0187 wrote on November 1, 2015, 6:16 PM

Did I 'disconnect' from you? I surely didin't mean to. Anyway, I just checked and I'm still follwoing you here in PP.

You seriously think that I'm a 'hurt and desperate soul' with what I wrote here?

allen0187 wrote on November 1, 2015, 6:17 PM

The Persona Paper coomunity maybe lacking in numbers compared to the 'b' site. What we lack in quantity, we surely make up for in quality!!!

AliCanary wrote on November 2, 2015, 2:30 AM

Yeah, what a load of crap--everybody knows supermodels don't eat breakfast :p

allen0187 wrote on November 2, 2015, 7:42 PM

i doubt if anyone truly reads anything in that site. it is all about getting the pennies over there.

cheri wrote on November 2, 2015, 10:43 PM

This I can really relate. I encountered what you had shared in the B site as well. As much as possible I am trying my best to be a good connection

ViperGirl85 wrote on November 3, 2015, 8:50 PM

I think on here, you can see if someone is following you by going to their profile, so first I'd disconnect for lying to me. Then I'd stop visiting your posts and delete the unrelated comments. If you kept at it, maybe I'll report you right back. So mwahaha I win. emoticon :tongue:
In all seriousness, I would never want to be a bad connection tho. I feel bad when I'm not here enough, but that's only because I'm busy, not because I don't WANT to be.

bethieannie wrote on November 11, 2015, 4:44 AM

I have been on hiatus, so that probably makes me a bad connection. Consistency is of course the more desired route. Bad connections are the guys who expect you to read write and comment on their content, but have no intention of reading or interacting with others. The magic is in the interaction, the essence is in the content.

LeaPea2417 wrote on December 10, 2015, 5:30 PM

I try to be an honest connection. When I connect, I try and answer and interact as much as I can.
