CHARITY!!! I knew you were still here! I miss your posts! Glad you haven't left us. Try to enjoy your life at 17 with everything you've got going on. Sounds like a bunch of crap has been thrown at you. I'm thinking about you... hope your fish are still with you!!

And as far as I know the subject isn't taboo - but you might not find out the answer though. I miss him around here but luckily I'm friends on FB with him too!

I don't know if taboo is the right word. but there is a bit of an unspoken thought process behind it.

With out getting to deep about it, I think its safe to say that he has some different perspectives on some fish keeping practices. Not everyone aggrees on some of them. I think it escalated at some point and probably led to some frustration or hurt. ... I personally am a big Paul fan, and i hope he makes his way back eventually. OFL isn't the same with out him. and i can sift through people's ideas about fish keeping and try the ones I think may work for me, no matter who has the ideas.

Hope that helped a little. :S :unsure:

I miss Paul I dont care what peoples opinions are; if we all thought the same life would be so boring and how would we learn anything different. Having an different outlook on life is a good thing and I also really want him to return he made this forum funny and interesting and was in my eyes very helpful.

I'm not on FB because I'm a HERMIT and not a social nut otherwise I would def want him as my friend on there. :)

I'm living my life, but not necessarily in the right order :)

I agree jnet. I was not around to see the full story unfold, but it seems to me that if peoples fish keeping practices work and they have alot of varied experience, that can only make them an asset to a site like this. Whatever happened to the concept of the friendly community? Did that dissapear while I was missing? Having said that...I am in a bit of grumpy mood myself at the moment :pinch: so I cannot really preach that one.......

As you know JNET I came back just after my husband left. When he did that I really started looking for things that I enjoy to make me feel better about managing life as a single mum. My fish have always been there and I love them and they make me feel good about myself. They are happy and healthy and not everyone can achieve that... so even if my husband cant see that I have something to offer, my fish with a pea sized brain recognise my value! In addition to that I really needed to find all of MY friends again, and I underestimated just how much OFL grew to mean to me...it is a family and I really like alot of the people here..Just talking about fish is still talking to people and nice people at that! Plus a big part of why I have happy and healthy fish is there are so many people here who generously share their knowledge and experience and I have listened to them.... thanks :kiss:
