Since When?

By: Satika

I have been here for a while now. I have been surfing the SMC for 3 years now, and have been a webmistress for 1 1/2 of those years. When I decided to become a webmistress I made *one* cardinal rule for myself:

Be nice to everyone.

I didn't want to be one of those people who replied to every email with some snide remark. I mean, I was doing this to have fun doing what I love, and hopefully make a few friends along the way. As the old saying goes, you attract more bees with honey than with vinegar. So, I wanted to be nice and open.

It was about 4 months after I opened WAR when I started making friends with other SMC webmasters/mistresses over ICQ. They contacted me over ICQ or we met in chats, and it was really cool! Some of them were even pretty well known people, like Skeeter, Mara K, and Sailor Callisto (Suzers ^_~). They were all really nice and down to earth, and before long we became pretty good friends. It was excellent!

But then, a few months started.

Suck up.

Ass Kisser.



WHAT?! What did *I* do? I don't remember sucking up to anyone! I mean, I dont remember juding people by their 'reps'. I never refused anyone (except for *really* creepy people) my ICQ number. It's even up on my site now! I like manking friends! Since when did being friendly equal sucking up?

I still don't understand.

I was nice to everyone, and still some people *hate* me? Why? What have I done? I've tried to be nothing but nice. Since when is this sucking up?

Since when?

I'd like to know why some people see me as such an evil, conniving person. What did I do? It hurts me to think that you would consider me a bitch because I am......nice to people.
