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,

Why? What have I done? I've tried to be nothing but nice.
is this sucking up?
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
consider me a bitch because I am......nice to people.
