    No doubt it was just a bad run of luck. But, you know, it just kept _happening_, you know?

    Smoot posted an update 9 years, 5 months ago

    Hi. I see from my mailbox that some people have tried to contact me while I was away from here. If it was as urgent, I want to apologize.

    I took a break from here after a stretch where it seemed every single “venter” I got was either on the site to troll or try touse it as a fetish-chat line. Came back, got the same thing. Took a longer break.…[Read more]

    • I know, right? This is like a help line, if I wanted to sext every jerk around I’d go to a dating website. But hang on @Smoot, most of the people here are actually great. Perhaps you just landed on the wrong people. Message me if you want to talk.

    Smoot replied to the forum topic Have you ever felt weird when people d/c you? in the group Group logoListener’s Group 10 years, 7 months ago

    You can’t be expected to get everyone’s problem, and no listener’s obligated to make it work every […]

    Smoot replied to the forum topic How should we handle this? in the group Group logoListener’s Group 10 years, 7 months ago

    It’s happened to me a few times. Here’s what I tried…
    -Asking ‘have you chosen a method?’. It seems blunt, but if someone’s serious enough to have one chosen out, or God-forbid prepared, I know what we’re […]

    Smoot started the forum topic Your personal rules? in the group Group logoListener’s Group 10 years, 9 months ago

    I’m just wondering what rules listeners tend to set for themselves. This is just me, but personally:

    -I tend to ask the venter if they want advice, or just someone to listen. Sometimes we know what we need to […]

    Smoot replied to the forum topic Humor or drama? in the group Group logoComic Book Nerds 10 years, 9 months ago

    Depends. If I’m going to a superhero comic, I tend to like fun stuff. At the most-serious, something like Kurt Busiek’s Astro City.

    I go to non-supers comics for drama, if I want that. “Local” is an amazing […]
