That would depend on how much "fun" you can handle I would think!

Droping in here, I find it quite a nice way to un-twist myself after a zany day or a few.

That why I have drop in, it keep me from going nuts, in other words I keep my sany reading posts, and get a few LOL.

As I say before, if my post goes zany will sometime my mind and finger are not quite work together at the same speed.

Or depend on if I uses a new med or not the post my come out odd then I before things have gone zany. LOL

Usually if you have more than 5-10 posts I keep you on the active list regardless. Also I sometimes scan the potential inactive list looking for names I recognize and keep them active.

Yep, but you made enough posts that you don't get shifted to the Inactive group. Generally I only move those that have less than 10 posts, sometimes only those less than 5.

I cannot believe how long it has been. Wow, getting a Master's degree and raising two teens sure takes a lot of time. Happy to have found my way back, I think I can post, maybe?

I've just shunted a lot of accounts into the Inactive category, members that have not logged in for a full year, and members that have one post or less that haven't logged in for 6 months.

Re-activation is easy for anyone that wants it, just use the contact us link at the bottom of each page and submit your request (including your username!).
