Bloopers can be posted on the Comedy board.
Post jokes and comedy on Comedy board. (NM)
Comedy board is for LOL!

I put a good one on the Comedy board. It might offend some!
Reminder: Jokes go on Comedy board. (SM)

This has been an issue before.  No exceptions.

Thank you.

I laugh at the comedy board not at a strike.
then get off of the porch.  You call this OP venting?  Cut me a break.  Sounds more like a cry for help.  Why don't you all find a new profession instead of wanting everything handed to you on a silver platter.  I find no humor in compromising patient care because someone wants to have a b***ch fit!!!  
Of course you can, but there is a board for that purpose. Feel free to post on the Comedy Stop.
Please see my question on company board -posted on wrong board

Are you the one who posted on the Ask the Dr board?

I go to "The Stop Smoking Center" for online support.  I quit for eight years, but this past 13 months have been so crazy that I relapsed exactly one year ago.  I've been peeved at DH and stressed over a lot of stuff, so I lit up one night while out with a friend.  I quit again for three months using Zyban, but relapsed yet again after stopping that.  I do OK during the day with not smoking, but DH smokes outside at home so it's tough to stay quit being around him.  I just keep making excuses to not quit.  That means I'm just not ready yet.  People handle their emotions and stress fine without smoking.  I handled everything fine for eight years without smoking, and those eight years were pretty hairy, too..  For me, it's a question of replacing my bad emotional crutch with a good one.  (Exercise!)

Good for you for making the decision!  You can do it!  Google the support board I told you about, and I'll probably be around here if you want to buddy up or anything.

This is posted on the job board:

...7 cpl for a 65-char. line with room for increase. Please send resume and place "ESL MT" in the subject line. These are very difficult accents...

Is this serious??  THAT is why there is nothing left to this profession.  Applying for and accepting jobs like this is what has been the kiss of death for MTs.  I hate to think what they would pay for non ELSs - 5 cpl?

I have posted this before on another board
My DH cousin jokeingly said to be a Transcriptionist all you have to do is know how to type and spell. I said "okay, spell pterygoid muscle." After a long blank stare he said, "There is no such thing". Like I said he truely was joking but so many people think there is nothing to this job.
Look on the job board, someone just posted a weekend only job - nm
It should be posted on the Company board, please.
On another board here, I posted a news
article which actually identified this New Zealand company as being owned by a HUGE American national....everyone laughed at me and said this was old news - offshoring. But it was sure news to me that it was my company and now in New Zealand. Personally, I'd love to transfer there. Lots of nice sheep and trees.
Silly me, you posted t his on the Gab board too - sm
I got confused!!!!!
sorry...posted on wrong board
Someone posted abbreviations before this board went
bonkers and I had copied it down. When site went down, so did my copy. Does anyone have a good site for abbreviations? Thanks.
I also posted on the political board, but -
I did not refer to Obama or McCain and the political side of it, I am interested more in how it is effecting us in the United States. Everyone else is posting here about their jobs and that is what I am talking about. I don't care about policies right now, I am wondering how every day life is going to change.

And, no, I am not being rude, just explaining myself.
Just posted on the Political Board
a long rant on this - please refer to that. But also see this website.

It's time to take a stand MTs!

If you are the OP, you also posted this on the Company board
As being a position with Keystrokes. I didn't think KS hired ICs?

Color me confused but...?
At the top of the Company Board is posted ....s/m
' Don't make your decisions based on someone else's recommendation - Administration '
One guy posted on message board, saying he was on his laptop in the car.
He said they are doomed if they do not open up the highway going the opposite direction, as you said. And, fuel is an issue, needless to say.

Mandatory evacuation should have been ordered soon, they are saying, as opposed to voluntary.
I believe they are posted on "Job Seeker's Board"
Posted on Coder's board, but cannot get a reply
This is an awesome link... Thanks so much, I posted this on another board (sm)
Was referred to this Tips & Techniques... No clue what it meant... This explains a lot. Thanks so much.
Hi Donna. I posted to you on the autoimmune board

Other people have posted about the ad on the company board--
--but the posts were deleted. I'm not sure what's up with that.
Give professional reasons why you deserve it, not personal reasons
Administrator I posted my name for looking for an MT job on your job resume board and I dont see it
We have not moved this topic to the Company board. Perhaps you posted it
there initially thinking it was the Main board.
Re above message - just posted on technical board. Need help badly.
As always, political posts should be posted on the Politics board.
Posted another quick and good one on recipe board for you.
Posted on the Gab Board about name suggestions for my cookie business if anyone would like to help
I'm not sure how busy the Gab Board is compared to this board, so I thought I'd post here as an fyi. Thanks for any help :)
Sorry to disappoint you but I've never posted on the newbie board!
I agree. And as someone posted on another board here, it's hard to care about it when the dictat
Being these are pretty darn important documents, it's equally as important for us to get it right as it is for them to slow down so we can truly actually hear what they're trying to say. It's a joint effort that often falls short on their end for whatever reason.
On job board. Some goof posted 11:50 hour for 2 years experience

To the service who posted a job ad on the Main board, the reason your post
was removed is because all job ads are to be posted on the Job Seeker's board. Any "well-deserving MT" knows to look at that forum for that "chance to work for an excellent company and make an excellent line rate". Feel free to post your ad there.

Thank you.
MT Week prizes are posted on the Main board. Watch for them and then
follow the directions to enter. If you see a post that has a winner announced beneath it, that prize is no longer available.
This was posted earlier today on the Gab Board and now I am reading this statement from this Pakista

The mtstars.com domain name has been hijacked, so this website will probably go down and then come back up with old information (not current posts). We are setting up at mtstars.net and taking legal action to regain the mtstars.com domain. Please do not post at this site further as the domain has been taken over by an offshore entity.

Thank you for your loyalty over the years, but know that we are not gone. We plan to have mtstars.net up and running very soon ...

I stayed for many reasons and while those reasons have changed - sm

I loved MT because I was good at it and it came naturally to me.  Typing, language, etc.  The perks of working from home and being able to raise my family were a huge plus.  I stayed because in the hayday of MT you could make really good money really fast (2500 lpd @ $0.15 cpl). 

I stayed while my children were young and I could be available for them.  I stayed so I could return to school and have that flexible schedule to juggle everything once the kids grew  older.  I stayed full-time and cut school back to half time so I could take care of my ailing parents and inlaws when the time arose.   

I continue to stay because I still need to finish school (3 semesters to go) and unfortunately my DH is ill and needs someone to care for him now.  I stay because it is convenient, but I do not plan to stay forever. 

I sure miss the big money days, but what money I make now is sufficient enough to pay my bills.  It is a means to an end so to speak and it has been a godsend along the way.  But I in no way plan to stay at it forever.  It served and continues to serve a purpose, but it is no longer what I "love" to do. 

The Comedy Stop !!
There's some funny stuff over there.  It's good to have a comedic break now and then.      
standup comedy....My magnet says...sm
I have a magnet on my fridge that says:  If Mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy.  *LOL*
LOL. And some kind of comedy competition soon too!!! nm.
You're right - TV comedy had Phyllis Diller, - sm
comedy readers had Erma Bombeck, and we MT's have Hayseed!
Hey! Why did they delete the entire comedy folder from this site?
Just added a favorite funny to the Comedy Stop

It was popular in the 1990s, but I was able to find it again by googling.   I discovered that it is not a true story, which is disappointing, but just pretend it is.
