OK, you asked for a comment.
I don't post a lot, because I have nothing to say. I'm not a resident of The Villages yet, not for 4 more years. but as we live only 60 miles away, we are frequent visitors. I use this forum to try and learn more about The Villages and the people in them. We have close friends who are residents and they give their input, but most times they have different ideas then we do. Watching TV and playing golf is not my thing, but by reading this and other web sites I have learned that there is much much more to The Villages than just golf and television.

Hi,

I read many of the posts and have learned a lot. I will only post on things that I have knowledge of. On subjects, where I think you need to be a resident of TV, I just read and learn.

If there are things I wish were different at TV I feel that I can only bring them up to post, when I purchase a home in TV.

This site is fantastic - Like I said I have learned many things.

I think that the reason that a lot of people do not post are because they don't want to be on the negative side of the post.

I have posted to several post just to answer the question that was asked and got bombarded with reasons why my answer was wrong. Geez all I did was respond to the question. One was - do you think that the restaraunt prices in the area are high. Yes I do and I got all kind of economic reasons why prices went up. That was not the question and I answered it as I felt.

Any time you answer a post you are opening yourself up to rebuttal. Some people would rather stay out of it.

There are some posts I don't respond to for just for the flavor of the conversation. reason.

I work with older Nurses who did not like to type into the computer. They just pick at it and it gets frustrating. Practice makes perfect. My Brother is a Doctor and he sent me an email and mispelled knew by typeing new. et. Also one forgets the proper forms of english. It could be embarrassing . I love typos myself. I just saw an add at a hospital site for a srygery nurse!!!

that it may be a self consciousness I reckon!!!!

Why people don't post? :dontknow: I think it's just like any "hobby" - personal preference! Some people like to golf, some like to post, some like to line dance, some like to just watch. I think it's a form of entertainment to read posts and occasionally jump in. It's also putting a little piece of yourself out there, open to criticism, not everyone feels comfortable doing that.

The TOTV administrators also do not seem to allow that many blows below the belt even if some people land one on occasion.

Could it be they have nothing relavent to post? Nah...that's not it. Could it be that they're afraid that their response post or initial post won't be well received by the community? Hmmm maybe. Maybe some of the existing posts aren't compelling enough to generate an emotional response? Nah....that can't be it.....some posts almost SCREAM for a response.

My gut tells me, that maybe there are folks out there who just don't understand the concept of a community forum? And or maybe they have fears in the context of cybersecurity.....and that somehow, someway....their privacy or security will be compromised if they post.

There are quite a few posts I would like to put out but really do worry about how they will be received.I think I have one comming up that will really keep me on the tightrope. Hope to get up the nerve to put it out soon!

We are reading totv everyday--but we still live in cold n.j.--we will not move to tv until oct 08---reading everyones posts on almost any topic gives us a feeling every day of being closer to our dream--its our daily villages fix ,plus we are getting a lot of useful information--i think there are a lot of others like us ,who don't have much personal villages info to post since we are on the outside looking in--besides i'm a lousy one finger typist--- ;D--steve

Maybe they can't post because of digging paws and not so ferocious biting on your fingers. 10 week old 4 legged critter. Ouch get down, NO, Sit, ok lets go outside.
