I will admit that weird musical episode likely played a role in Giles becoming the repo man in Repo! The Genetic Opera. That man can really sing!

I could be wrong about the musical episode and his role in Repo. I'd honestly forgotten about that episode until I saw the movie with a Buffy fan. I was like "Damn! Isn't that the librarian from Buffy? Who knew he could sing?" I was swiftly reminded "Giles? They did that musical episode! He was effing awesome!"

I'm always surprised to find so many CT people who watch TV series and such.

I haven't had a TV for the past 10 years and counting, I've always seen it as a brainwashing box. I watch some series but not entertainment series, only informative ones and through the pc not the TV.

I've maybe seen Buffy once in my life because of a friend, but it bored me instantly. I dislike tv series anyway.

I don't watch things often. No cable or Netflix. I haven't watched the last 3 or 4 seasons of Supernatural. Got sucked into Riverdale while doing laundry at my mom's and she was binge watching it. (I have a love/hate relationship with that show.) Usually we just stick on a VHS or DVD, most of which we get for $1 at the pawn shop next door. Plus the wee one is often aware of what's going on cuz I don't bs her. She knows both sides of what Trolls is about, but it's still an enjoyable film that leaves us feeling positive when it ends.

Also the tvs get covered up at night...

There are very few tv shows that i end up liking so much and Smallville is one of them. Dawson's Creek, not so much but i did watch it. Supernatural, hated it. An episode or two and that was it. Couldn't stand the whole paranormal theme.

Many of us watched these shows when they first came out, before we "saw the light". Right now, i hardly watch tv. I have a giant pile of material to read and i can't sink into a couch every other night to watch a serie. I would feel like iam wasting time. Its not like iam going to gain anything from such an activity except kill time and to indulge in some escapism.

Interesting, why do you do that? Because of the radiation?

Well, I guess it's my time to say goodbye.

My refusal to give my identity has apparently lead to some kind of witch hunt and intimidating PM's that I really don't need in my life so thanks those who've been nice to me and who I had pleasant discussions with.

For the others:

I hope you're happy with yourself for making me leave. I will ask the admins to ban me so that returning is impossible and you will not be able to continue harrassing me.

Oh Taragaia I am so sorry. That is terrible. I can't understand how anyone could do something like that to such a sweet person. You are one of the sweetest people. I hope that there is another way, and this isn't the end, but I can understand. I'm so sorry to hear this.

Brave New World has the worst ending of all time. When John the Savage dies after all the people are just like heckling him and getting ready to return to their meaningless life, I was so upset. I have never been so upset reading any book before. Just such a bizarre way to see a society of growing complacency.

Tara knows she is always welcome back if she decides she wants to come back. It's unfortunate that it came to this. Because she doesn't want any new identity to be linked to her old one, even if she were to return she obviously couldn't tell us up front or ever mention that she had other usernames to begin with. That was unfortunately her "fatal" flaw. As soon as you mention you were an old member in a CT community you open yourself up to the nosy mystery solvers who have to know, and honestly it doesn't take a whole lot to give yourself away once people know to look for tells. Personally, I don't see why anyone would care about who she was beforehand, but it wasn't something Tara was uncomfortable with people knowing, I guess to avoid drama, which ironically resulted in more drama and her feeling forced to ban herself. Any who were messaging her to taunt her with their knowledge or posting about it in threads should certainly feel ashamed of themselves, it was a very unkind thing to do.
