I think it's a play on the word "foreigner", gobo. Spelled weird so we can pronounce it like some old xenophobic hillbilly, I believe.

EDIT: Oh, darn they beat me to the explanation. Sigh.

Well, at least you got to use the word 'xenophobic' in its proper context.. didn't you? *visits dictionary.com*

Couldn't have said it better myself. I think quite a few of us have given him a fair chance, myself included. Even though he has laid back on the insults and has made quite a bit of progress compared to when he first came here...he has a long way to go. Good relationships aren't given out like candy. He's been acting up for a good while now, and some of the things he's done here can not simply be undone with a simple two weeks of good behavior.

Well that makes sense then. 'cause I mean, all of the other "Furriners" as you so put it, that have posted on these forums over the years have all been treated the same way.

Wait, what's that? They haven't? Oh, well I'll be damned.

Syd is hardly the first non-native english speaker we've ever had. In fact, there used to be a frequent visitor from Italy who barely spoke english, no one ever had issues with him.

I'm just going to slip on by this whole syd issue and concentrate on something more important.

I am suffering.

I don't know what to do. My next specialist appointment isn't until March, and I made that in November. That's how long it takes to get in. My friend tells me how close I am to getting to that appointment, but I see it as so far away. I just can't take it anymore. I can't have any kind of life. I don't want to do anything. I can't do anything. I can't eat. I'm in pain. I feel awful.

I can't take it anymore.
I don't have the words to say that would make you feel better. I doubt anything could be said to make you well. All I can say is to just hang in there. You've got such a great spirit and a strong will burning in that frail form of yours. You're an important person, no matter what you may hear or think. This isn't just babble, either.

You can pull through this. You're alot stronger than you feel.

It all just made my brain hurt or want to kick a puppy.
I know, it's okay, I was not picking on him either, actually, I gotta thank him, he got the acuteness and he definitely helped me remind of who I am. I feel much relieved I tell you.

Don't you have some 15 paragraph post to type up somewhere else?
Peanut doesn't like Q&A game,probalbly. And he withdraws whenever he doesn't feel like playing.:-[

Me neither, who the heck like that sort of game anyway? Wasting of time. I wonder what kind of jerk first invented it. It's actually all about the methods, the game is no other than a method to get the players what they want. I hate games. Man, when you found yourself too anesthetized in games to feel the real world, welcom to quit them for all, go ahead to persue thoes you persued but failed to get in the past. *melancholy*


But then again, having not checked in the group of our class, I found myself listed among the poor fish who failed to submit their homeworks to Miss. H?! And the lists are...WOW, terrificly full. I wonder how can nearly half part of the class failed to do their homworks, that's very suspecious. But that's the problem: Miss. H always informs you that you haven't submitted her homeworks after you submitted them to her several days ago, she always says that, she just never believe you have sent them to her, she hates that view. What the hell, and she will throw you a deadline by threatening your scores. And she is over-weighted. =_-|||||| That's it, amnesia, over-weighted, aaaaand vicious.
Good news is I'm gonna graduate soon.

@all you douchebags that replied last week

Here is the most perfect quote, from my good old creepy acquaintance, Steffan:
Quote:
I like Alejo. He isn't a douche, he isn't a druggie, he doesn't have Tourettes, and he doesn't live in California.
