From the beginning, the chan was always replete with trolling and abuse. Were there also "good convos"?, I guess, but if they're not always here anymore, I think it's bad logic to blame that on the people who haven't left.
I don't lust after Catie. The thought of her and me together is gross and the fact that I'm the gross part of that image makes it worse, so it's easy for me to avoid that thought. It makes me cringe HARD. I think old guys who lust after younger women must have no self-awareness. You don't have to believe me, but stop pretending you can read my mind. Judge me by my actions. When I say something disrespectful about Catie, call me on it.
Catie's mom is a great lady who is around my age. I'd go out with Catie's mom in a heartbeat, and I told her so.
