Personal thoughts about the ILP forums

Postby pilgrim-seeker_tom » Thu Feb 02, 2017 4:30 am

The following thoughts are fruit of my former business self.

I have often wondered why the ILP forums have remained thinly populated ... not unlike former consumer products with enormous potential that failed when launched in the market place. Though I'm confident at the appointed time ILP membership will explode.

In the meantime ...

ILP has a core group of incredibly gifted minds ... though a few seemed to have left recently.

IMO these incredibly gifted minds are acting out the gladiator rituals of ancient Rome ... fighting to the death in pursuit of personal glory.

I anxiously await the day these same incredibly gifted minds abandon their pursuit of personal glory in exchange for pursuit of the common good for all of humanity.

I'm the only one who can control my ego. :angelic-halofell:
I AM OFFICIALLY IN HELL!


Cutting folks for sport is a reality for the poor in spirit. I myself only cut the poor in spirit on Tues., Thurs., and every other Sat.

I anxiously await when the so called good, moral, and ethical people of the world realize their own hypocrisy. Oh wait,......that will probably never happen.....
Civilization is a ship of fools headed to a one way destination of catastrophe and annihilation, its many captains populated by asshole-idiots that all agree it is unsinkable.

Merlin ... your optimism is seeping out :-) ... your choice of the word "probably" :-)
