Please see my question on company board -posted on wrong board
Newbie to this board

Just wanted to say Hi and introduce myself! I am from NE Michigan. Hoping to graduate from Career Step by the end of October, plugging away! Best wishes to all students!

Newbie to board - what is a flame? nm
You're smarter than I was as a newbie! I've - sm
gotten myself into some terrible job situations in the past by jumping on board too hastily.

I think the person applying for the job in that original post probably wasn't that good at timing her questions. Even so, we do have every right to ask about them, just as they do to ask about us.
Stop yelling at the board, newbie mt. We don't jump
Just where do you get off trying to tell everyone around here how to behave, what to post, when to post, what to criticize, what not to criticize, etc.?

Excuse me?

Many here have been on these boards for a decade or more, and you're trying to tell them what to do and how to do it? No. I don't think so, hun.

Try soaking that hot head of yours in cool water before trying to come on here and dictate to anyone what they can and cannot do. You DO sound like a spoiled, rotten brat.

You're pretty much the only one crying, you know, or you're in the minority. The general consensus here is that this is a darn good place to be, and the reason for that is because of the people who post here. So back off.

All word questions need to be posted on the Word board. Please use the correct board to post.

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 '
As you can already see, you've come to the wrong board! By using the word professional, you've
excluded about 99% of the population of "whatever" it is that hangs on these boards. Certainly not professional for sure! But you sure are doing a good thing for someone! Its the thought that counts. Sorry you met the dregs right at the start.
I agree. I've posted about this too. sm

It sounds so ridiculous and self-important.  I hear this myself thing all the time, and it drives me crazy. 

Actors on talk shows especially love to say things like:  "Yeah, it's myself, (why are you putting yourself first - it's like it's doubly wrong!) Richard Gere, and Julia Roberts in the movie."  (I heard an actor do this 4 times during a 5-minute interview.  I was yelling at the TV!  ;o)

Noooo, it s/b:  "It's Richard Gere, Julia Roberts, and me in the movie."  (What's wrong with little old me?) 

It's like when people incorrectly use the word *I* when *me* would be correct.  (Like saying:  "Come with John and I to the party," instead of correctly saying "Come with John and me to the party.") 

They say it thinking *I* sounds better.  I think it's the same thing with *myself.*  It sounds correct to those who don't know better (and you'd think doctors would know better).  To those who do know better, it just sounds... silly! 

One other pet peeve is that I constantly hear (even on the local news, which really drives me crazy) people say *there's* instead of *there are.*  Example:  "There's many reasons to exercise."  There is many reasons?  No!  There are.  (In casual conversation, not a big deal.  But on the *news*?  Wow.) 

Thanks for letting me vent. 

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.
Okay, Top Ten Reasons Why... posted on comedy board

This one is good.

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.
Bloopers can be posted on the Comedy board.
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.
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 :)
so far no one has posted they've made 100 grand a year. nm
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 ...

Sorry to disappoint you,
no nerve hit in the least. I am actually in shock that you take that much time in your responses and that they are so disturbing. Nothing near the fat and ugly stuff I post. I just do it to be an idiot. Wow, the stuff I type is like child's play compared to the stuff you type.
Like I said, sorry to disappoint you.
You really need to look at your life and why you think these things up. The things I type are pretty basic, stupid and idiotic. I will totally admit it! Nothing in detail like you type.
I have one who never fails to disappoint me...
She always says, 47-year-old comma obese comma white comma female.  That last comma always cracks me up.  I agree that they could save themselves a lot of trouble by not worrying about punctuation.  That's why I get paid. 
Hate to disappoint you - quit S in October!
Hate to disappoint you but the government doesn't care about you.

Where do people get the idea that our government wants to know what is on your computer or who you talk to on the phone.  That is soooo stupid.  READ, study, investigate it for yourself...not someone elses interpretation.( Patriot Act).  It is NOT used for tracking US individuals willy nilly.  It is specifically geared toward foreign suspects involving only very specific US contacts/colleagues/persons of interest.

It was started under Clinton and Bush has taken it one step further by daily reports to the cabinet!!!!  Nothing more nothing less.  Take a trip through our recent history and find the truth yourself instead of becoming part of the media system in spreading untruths and hysterics.  It is not new ....only more open.

Also, from what I've seen on this board SM
they pay significantly less than an experienced and technically-in-this-century MT can make on production. How about finding out what the remaining hourly jobs are paying full time, then going to part time production work and grinding fast for the number of hours a day it takes to reach that goal?
I think I've done enough by providing the MQ board.
And we've discussed this before on this board. Life is not that
simple for me. If I leave the state, I leave my elderly parents that I care for and I leave my minor children because they legally cannot cross state lines without their father's permission. He's not going to OK that. Besides, I'm happy doing MT. Who ever said I was not happy doing MT? It works great with all the family I have to care for. I just wish I hadn't wasted time and money going to college, especially when the job market in my state got oversaturated with other college grads.
You've been trying to say doctor envy on the company board all morning?
No wonder you get flamed.  You think people don't like other posters because they might be a doctor?   You been posting all morning and now this afternoon and you are concerned about work ethic?  Sorry Charlie your post and your actions make NO SENSE.
