I can totally understand the OP’s decision.
Even though TOTV has been a great source of useful information on home repairs etc.
In my opinion it also attracts a lot of complainers
and argumentative type folks.

But have you noticed, when you ask for advice, you no longer get the reference you used to. Most popular is slap is USE SEARCH. Of course most are so old that it does no good. I get useful info on next door neighbor with little grief.

Op there are many who no longer post here, comments about multiple people using same sign on, what gender, best is multiple personalities. I spend a total of 2.45 hours a week online, that includes shopping work related, and general email. Totv takes very little of my time lately. Unlike many who seem to always have to post on many things.

I really didn't come to TV to spend my time debating if the Ice is too cold or too hot and just what are the rules around Ice.

So, I wish for you all to live long, to prosper and be happy with the time you have left.

I am now going back to enjoy my cool aide and all that TV has to offer.
Martian, if you are still on... I'm sorry you are leaving and hope you will change your mind. Off topic, but have you heard about the Civil Discourse club? I think it meets every other week. You might enjoy it. Civil Discourse Club - The Villages, FL. - Home | Facebook

Sorry to see you go M, It can be overwhelming especially when talking about anything controversial. Now you know where the majority stands here with politics, MMJ, and even dog poop lol

I agree with the above poster that said maybe just tune out for a bit. Life is way to short to sweat the small stuff.

Drop out for a while, take a deep breath, and enjoy your new life. Yes, there are "curmudgeons" on TOTV. Also, people for whom TOTV may be their only contact with others. And of course, those who just have to have to last word. Just let it roll off your back because it's their problem, not yours. Come back when you're ready.
