Love cookies, but is it enough? - Page 2

post #16 of 70
BRAVO! BRAVO! ::clapping::
I totally agree with txcupcake!! Don't let haters deter you away from something you love. Some hag probably needed to take a midol. Stay with us. You are a great asset to the cake and cookie community, and shouldn't be afraid to express yourself. If your comments get at someone it's probably because you are right and they wrong. Let your work speak for your expertise.

BTW txcupcake i almost choked on my ice tea!! Next time tell us how you really feel!

oease on't leave you are definately an inspiration!! and who says that "cookie" people can't offer some advice/tips/crietics to "cake" people anyway?!?! (or vise versa) that's what this community is supposed to be about-some people need to take a breath and chill

There will be no leaving! If you can't be here, what does that say about the pathetic (unskilled) decorators like me who are here to learn and grow in this craft? I've seen some nastiness around here that might have deterred me from sharing my two cents or even my photos (no really, I am unskilled), but what I get out of the nice, helpful, funny, and encouraging people on this site really outweighs any of the bad.

And your cookies are AWESOME! I am actually becoming very interested in pursuing that route here lately, and you are certainly going to be a big inspiration to me. Besides the cookies, HOLY SMOKES, your cakes are perfection!

For all the time I spend on CC I didn't even know there was specifically a cookie forum as well. icon_redface.gif

Gemini...
Please don't take it personally that some people are unable to accept differing opinions. When I first started here, their was a poster that had been really supportive to me and she experienced what sounds like the same thing you did. (Not here on the cookie board) Someone took what she said out of context and started a string of mean PM's to her. Really sad. I feel bad for people like that whose own lives must be so dreadful that they try to make themselves feel better by belittling someone else. Don't become one of this type of person's victim. This is a board of support. If someone disagrees with your opinion, then a tactful, polite response like "I respectfully disagree" would be sufficient.

I love hearing your opinions and seeing your work-I consider you part of my CC family.

And txcupcake is right!!! Karma is a b*tch!

Holy fritters!! What on earth is wrong with people around here lately??

Seriously Gemini... you HAVE to stay here, if nothing else but for those of us who do cookies! Your work is gorgeous, and you have knowledge and information that we cookie folk must share.

Sure, I do both, but I cannot believe that someone would say you shouldn't talk because you like cookies better than cakes. Seriously, how do they know you just don't post pictures of your cakes. So stupid!!

Please don't let what someone else says affect you enough to leave. Negativity has been rampant around here lately and it's getting tiresome! But, take my word as a long time forum user, this too shall pass. There was just too much PMS rolling, and once the cycle is over, everyone will be fine.

The ignore button will block PMs from the negative person. Just click on the profile, and then the ignore button is on the left.
(If they were really nasty, you may want to report the person to a moderator.)

Please don't leave, I would miss you dreadfully. Image

Oh, I will! icon_wink.gif

Seriously though, it seems like there are a lot of meanies around here lately and it just peeves me to the core. I'll bet anyone dollars to donuts that if this were a real (as in tangeable) place for people to meet up and discuss cake/cookie/cupcake matters, most of the big-talking bully types would be sitting quietly in the corner stewing in their own sour juices.

I just think that if you're gonna talk the talk, you'd better get your big girl boots on and start walkin'. icon_lol.gif

Gemini, we love you and you'd better not go anywhere! icon_biggrin.gif

I think you have your answer!! icon_smile.gif Sounds like your loved by all. I know I'd certainly miss all of your help with everything. Sometimes we're darned if we do and darned if we don't. Keep on plugging through; they'll get over it. You'll be a bigger person for it.

Also, you may want to ask a moderator to remove or edit the post (or even the entire thread) that started the whole problem. They are glad to do it for the original poster.

Gemini ~
I just wanted to say that I joined CC for the cookies too, and I'm not even anywhere close to you in talent for the cookies. This is a place for novice to professional. Your cakes are great, I can't believe some of the negative people who have been coming out of the virtual woodwork lately.

Don't give them that kind of power over you. You know you have talent. I love your 3D cutters that you designed, and you do BEAUTIFUL work!
You are needed here!

Gemini,
So I don't know what was said, but come on, YOUR AWESOME!!!! You can't leave, because at the very least, from what I can tell you have a great passion for your craft & you sharing your skills is going to be greatly appreciated.

I was thinking something similar to this. I don't post very often, because even a simple question sometimes receives very snide remarks. It's very easy to forget when typing online that there are real people on the receiving end. I'm sorry to hear how rude people have been. I looked at your photos and I think they're ALL so cute! You have a lot of talent; I was very impressed. icon_smile.gif

Yes, I think you should leave.
There is way too much chocolate in this house.
The person who invented the margarita should be shot.
My DH is way too considerate.


Ummm, no. You can't leave. Nope, not allowed.

I don't remember the particular episode of Seinfeld, but this is one of my favorite quotes:

Elaine: Ugh, I hate people.
Jerry: Yeah, they're the worst.
