We're essential services so I'm back at work now. This has strangely been made more enjoyable after having had to be reminded of this reference, so thanks I guess
excuse me...you just can’t go awol any time you choose...no matter what the reason is. I thought you of all people would know that.

I thought I'd have got on at some point, but you'd be amazed how many naps you can fit in on a day off. Plus I was hanging out with my daughter most of the day anyway and generally when I go on my computer at home it's for gaming and not browsing

I still haven't warmed up to the idea of posting on BE on my phone.

Err.. I thought going to work was for nap taking not when you are home!

Remember to send out APB before this happens again

That's my main reason too. I make too many mistakes, autocorrect picks weird choices for words and I just prefer using a keyboard.

I had been whittling away people on my ignore list (no, not bumping them off ) and cleared the last one just a couple of days ago.

The reason? Most chatter had been on the virus thread and there had been no real winding up there.

And then today happened.

Oh god, it's inescapable.

Real talk though, and not sure if this is concerning or not, but I didn't feel like I missed out on much by not coming on the last few days (4 if you include the weekend but I'm never on at the weekend). I like my interactions with the posters on here, but yeah, I didn't even really feel the urge to sign in, even though I likely wouldn't have got around to it anyway because I was doing other things.

It is always the same old suspects that join in to keep stirring the pot...and if the cap fits...STOP.

It's good for helping with being shut in here, since I'm working from home (and lucky that I can work and get paid, etc). The virus thread was pretty civilized and helpful until a couple of people who apparently can't live without a stupid argument showed up.

Since I was using vacation days I didn't have to worry about working, and thus other than fannying about on Reddit on my phone, most of my shut in activities were either watching TV with my daughter, sleeping, or video games. Not to sound dismissive but BE became kind of surplus to requirements

It was just weird, but when I signed back in this morning, since I wasn't quoted by anyone by a spammer in my absence, I was able to skip ahead to the last unread post in all my subscribed threads and felt like I didn't need to catch up. I think that forums in general are suffering anyway, this is basically the only forum I am still active on now of the handful I used to be subscribed to.

That's how I use BE anyway. I don't follow any threads, nor do I go and see who's quoted me or anything. I just cruise around and comment if I feel like it and not if not.

I check to see if anyone's quoted me so I can reply because I will constantly worry about them thinking I was rude if I don't. Thanks for that, mum

I haven't really looked in on too many new threads, because they are usually just variations on a theme, or offshoots of existing ones anyway so kind of a waste of time.
