    What a waste of life. What the h*ll is going on with young people these days? And more importantly, what is it going to take to change this tidal wave of violence?

  11. sk8tergirl • May 28, 2008 @ 5:20 PM

    He died helping his brother, which is really sad.I agree with tributegirl, there’s just so much violence in the world.

  12. tributegirl • May 29, 2008 @ 10:21 AM

    It seems like the justice system of almost every country in the free world is letting their public down by letting kids get away with murder, literally. I’d like to see the people take things into their own hands, take back their streets, bring safety back into their communities. I’ll tell ya one thing, if a gang of young punks starts beating on me, I won’t just stand there, and I won’t run. I’ll probably get the sh*t beat out of me, but I’ll inflict as much damage on them as possible, I don’t care how old they are.

  13. Nancy • May 29, 2008 @ 11:07 AM

    I’ll second that!!

    The Young Offenders Act, should be re-named ‘Free Ride’, or ‘Slap on The Hand’. Damn kids are bad nowadays! No, not misbehaving….BAD!!! I remember when I was in school for instance, MOST of YOU will probably feel the same too, the last f-ing place I wanted to get sent was the principals office! Holy sh!t!! The principal would hold your wrist and put your hand on his desk and take that big strap and belt your hand with it, like 20 million times!!!! Now, the principal is not even there 1/2 the time, and when the kids misbehave they just call home and whine to the parents…who mostly don’t discipline them either because they are never home!! The schools teach the kids to tell them if their parents ‘hit’ them or to call CAS, the police or a child’s help line. This is ok for those who are being abused but for discipline, come on people!!

  14. Nancy • May 29, 2008 @ 11:09 AM

    My 11 year old daughter’s friends gave her the CAS tip. She used it on me, too! I dialed the phone for her…she sure changed her tune in a hurry!!!

  16. tributegirl • June 1, 2008 @ 8:00 PM

    Nancy, I hope she learned a lesson! We’ve been having tons of problems with my 14 year old niece, and it’s getting worse. Her mother keeps blaming all her friends! It’s not gonna get any better until mommy wakes up and toughens up, I hope that happens before it’s too late.

  17. Nancy • June 2, 2008 @ 8:31 AM

    Oh, she learned alright!! The lady told her flat out to do as her mother tells her and that CAS is not there for kids who don’t want to follow the rules. She hasn’t played that card anymore! I also gave one of her friends in particular, a good scolding…and then had to scold her mother, as well….who just so happens to be a school teacher!! I told my daughter that I would switch her schools if she did not behave. Off topic: I think that Gina, Trixie, double, mike m, Jo-Anne, xray and more are all the same person, don’t you?

    Sk8tergirl: CAS (Childrens Aid Society)

  19. tributegirl • June 3, 2008 @ 1:59 AM

    And hey, where has Arnold been lately?

  20. Nancy • June 3, 2008 @ 8:47 AM

    I have wondered about Arnold, too!! But yes, I believe Gina blue is because not only did she and I always butt heads but she disappeared RIGHT before the double came on. Karen too. And Gina admitted that SHE was Trixie! Then yesterday, I caught xray using that name and anonymous within a few minutes of each other on 2 diff. topics but, saying the same thing, and it was all the same thing this Jo-Anne said. I’m totally convinced that all these personalities are from the same whacko!! 🙂 CREEPY!!

  21. Nancy • June 3, 2008 @ 8:50 AM

    OH! And remember, when ‘double’ was on here, someone mentioned that it was Arnold.???? I’m going to go fishing! I’ll start asking what he thinks again and let’s just see if he comes back on, k?

  22. tributegirl • June 3, 2008 @ 2:37 PM

    OmG, are you serious? Ok, with blue Gina, yeah you two did butt heads, but in a good way, you both have very strong opinions and voice them very strongly, but most of the time you both respected each others opinions even when you didn’t agree. Plus, she admitted that she doubled as Trixie, and she seemed to actually regret it. So I really don’t think she’s involved in this.
    But, there is someone on here with several split personalities, and I am sure Jo-Anne is one of them. She came out of nowhere, but knew everything about all the regular posters on here. I forgot about Karen, to tell you the truth. And Minerva is suddenly back, sometimes. X-ray and brownie are here once in a while.
    I think Poppa John in Exile is the real deal though, what do you think? I’m thinking there are probably only about 4 or 5 people actually on here, just one uses several aliases. We already figured out tammy and jennie_bearz are the same person.
    Lets look for Arnold, I’d be surprised and disappointed if he was involved.

  23. tributegirl • June 3, 2008 @ 2:43 PM

    Wait a minute, Gina and Karen were being doubled around the same time as Arnold, weren’t they? Double almost drove “me” insane (which is yours truly, by the way, changing my name was the only way to get rid of him-or so I thought, until I found the “contact us” button!). So, double drove “me” to change my name, then stopped doubling me because he/she didn’t know I changed my name, so then started doubling Gina, Karen, and Arnold. He also learned to be a blue Nancy for awhile, didn’t he? I think that’s when I told you about the “contact us” button, because he was also doubling me as tributegirl.

  24. Anonymous • June 3, 2008 @ 3:53 PM

    wheres honest phil? he will love this article!

  25. Nancy • June 3, 2008 @ 9:05 PM

    I think Poppa John is real…I hope, anyways! Yeah, Arnold was quite a regular on here so why would he all of a sudden disappear? Unless he is using another name…but why? He has used Arnold since the doubling stopped. Hmmmm. Jeeze! Someone must have really BIG problems and ALOT of time on their hands to be doing this!! I hope YOU are real!! Never thought I would ever be saying THAT to anyone…LMFAO! I hope the one who just commented above me about honest phil is not the whacko! This is the only partially safe place to chat…in the archives.

  26. Nancy • June 3, 2008 @ 9:08 PM

    I mean, I spend wayyy too much time here just posting under 1 name, could you imagine being multiple personalities on here? Maybe it’s someone who works for Tribute, as I said a while back…?????? I just haven’t a clue!!

  27. tributegirl • June 4, 2008 @ 8:29 AM

    Yeah, I’d like to know who that anonymous was that posted above you. I don’t think most people go through the archives, I only do once in a while looking back over the bigger articles, but I will stay on this one.
    Yes, I am truly just this one person, I used to be “me”, then “theoriginalme” after double made an appearance, then when he copied “theoriginalme”, I just went to anonymous for awhile. Then I made up tributegirl, which he ended up copying as well, but by then I found the contact us button, which helped. Whenever there was a post on there under my name that wasn’t me, I’d contact them again, they know my e-mail address, so when a request to delete a post by double came from my e-mail addy, they knew it was me. That has helped my situation a lot.

  28. tributegirl • June 4, 2008 @ 8:31 AM

    And I know what you mean, I spend too much time here too, and my house is suffering for it! I had also wondered if it was someone at tribute, but I don’t really think so. Anythings possible, but I doubt it.

  29. Nancy • June 4, 2008 @ 11:09 AM

    Great! Nothing like drawing heat! My comment is awaiting moderation and there is nothing bad in it at all, but now someone at Tribute will have to come here to edit it!

  30. tributegirl • June 4, 2008 @ 11:48 AM

    Yeah, tell me about it! They do that to me sometimes too! I can understand if there is a lot of swearing or whatever in it, but sometimes there is nothing bad in it at all! And sometimes they delete comments out of the blue. The article on Sex & the City had a bunch of comments that have now been deleted, which is actually ok with me, because I was getting tired of arguing with that tammy/jenni_bearz person.
    Actually I’ve half considered opening a new msn account & posting it here, that way unedited convo can happen, and I can block anyone who annoys me. Not sure yet, but if I do it will be a new account, not using the one that has people that I actually know.

  31. Nancy • June 4, 2008 @ 12:15 PM

    I know! I’ve wanted to give you my email but I can’t do it on here because it has my full name in it and that’s ALL I need, is for the whacko to get it!!!

  32. tributegirl • June 4, 2008 @ 12:34 PM

    Ok, I’ll make a new msn address, and post it on here, and whoever wants to talk on it, fine, but if I don’t like them I’ll block them. It will probably be but I’m not even sure yet if that is available. And NO WAY!!! Don’t ever let them have your full name! God knows what other info they could get from that!

  33. tributegirl • June 4, 2008 @ 12:36 PM

    Ok, I’m working on it, but you might want to do something similar, not using your full name. Maybe something like

  34. tributegirl • June 4, 2008 @ 1:20 PM

    Ok, that is just NOT working for me! I hate dial up! Ok, I’ll give you my regular one, since it doesn’t have my name in it I don’t really have to worry about anything, and I can just block anyone I don’t want to talk to. My regular one is:

  35. Nancy • June 4, 2008 @ 8:01 PM

    ok, done.

  36. honest phil • June 5, 2008 @ 5:33 PM

    i guess victoms of the harold potter gangs are fighting back

  37. Nancy • June 5, 2008 @ 9:27 PM

    Well, well, well!! There he is…honest phil…the man of the hour, the man with the power, too sweet to be sour!! LOL
