Today I made one of my rather rare visits to the Hill. I was checking my page and found 2 new “peekers” at my profile. Now don’t get me wrong. I love to have people check it. That is part of what makes social sites it fun. Still, This may be trivial but it irks me when someone checks my page and I go to return the favor only to get an ugly screen telling me I am not a “friend.” I know it isn’t a matter of life or death but to me it is a matter of principle. What gives the person a right to go surfing others profiles but slam the door in others faces when they try to return the deed?


I also try to leave a little comment on the pages I visit even if I clicked by mistake. I just consider it polite LOL A short generic greeting that one can paste to pages they visit is sufficient.

I think most of you know I try to be polite and never confrontational but I do have this silly idea that people are generally as nice as I am. LOL




Well, I happened to surf one of my groups. The last time someone wrote in that group seems a while. Still,I am sure glad I waited to post this because I came upon a post saying it disliked generic greetings. While I stand by my opinion, it gave me another perpective so I change a few words that might have a little harsh. I realized there once again are two sides to every story or opinion. I think my only reason is my slow as molasses typing. Like molasses it moves but slowly. LOL I guess I will continue to send generic greetings that are public and take the time to pound out to a private message when I respond to something. I have to do it this way or my poor hubby will have to endure a wife who will have her butt glued in front of this computer banging slowly away on the keyboard. ha


Now remember folks, that is just my humble opinion.

I've learned some people just like their privacy and that's why you see that from those who surfed your page. Or accidently clicked on it. As for me mine's open. I agree with you about generic greetings. A greeting is a greeting. If you're a person who has a million friends (I'm not btw), you probably won't see much personalization anyway.

Tried to leave a coment on your page but I guess this is one of those days. ha   Thanks for answering.   I do what you said but sometimes I forget.  I hate to send small type becaue I know some people have vision problems.  judy

Sorry--no way to change the default font size. Sometime I'll type my comment, and then change it all to size/color I want. (just highlight it all, then choose color, then size)

"Anyway, I'm glad you are 'back'!"

Thank you for replying.  You made my day by mentioning I was missed.   Hey, is there some way to make 3 or 12 point as default size. I hate that my font is always so tiny if I forget to change it.

Hi Judy.   Personally, I don't care if someone leaves me a comment or just a graphic--I think it's nice that they've visited. I do feel it's just 'polite' to leave at least some sort of comment.  (But I might forget, lol--specially if I'm just surfing around, as Staff, on my main acct)  And one note: I tend to 'forget' which acct I'm logged in on, lol. Sometimes I have this acct set to 'private'--usually when I'm in the midst of re-designing it--and 'forget'.  

But in general...yes, I agree that it seems rude when someone whose page is always Private (friends only) visits your page & of course you can't return the visit.   I suppose some members feel they have good reason to keep their pages Private; and of course, that's their option.  But at least if they leave you a comment, maybe that would be considered 'enough'.

  BTW: I'm making this from my Altara3 account because for some reason, as Staff, any comments I make from that account 'disappears' within 24 hrs; we've never figured out why!

Anyway, I'm glad you are 'back'!
