  1. Man, what a great day for Hoss in the LL chat. If you didn't get the chance to see this fine piece of man in action you should read through the transcript immediately!

    One hoodlum in the crowd stirred up some controversy when he suggested that Hoss be banned from the internet forever! The people's answer was a resounding "YES" and they joined arms and vied for the removal of Hoss. Soon everyone wanted to squelch this man's expression of raw manly emotion from their once safe computer screens.

    Did Hoss lay down and give up? Did he delete the name "Hoss" from the name entry field? Of Course Not! He's Hoss people! He fought them all off with some of his famous tough guy talk. "Enough of this politcally correct malarky"! He shouted in his thunderous voice. The people cowered back to their lowly position at Hoss' feet, regretting their defiance of one of the internet's greatest tough guys! Hoss was back in position at the top of the LL hierarchy.

    If you missed this valiant battle then go back and read it NOW! Make sure you have a box of tissues for your tears because it was certainly a great day for internet tough guys everywhere. God bless you Hoss.

  1. I saw this chat. I was cheering you Annoying, Hoss is too full of himself.

    Tough Love <> Condescending. Hoss is condescending 95% of the time.

    I read his posts, but am not in awe of him. He writes well, but his content is not All That.

  1. Congrats on living what surely appears to be a full and completely satisfying life, as well as living up to your nickname.

  1. Reminder: This is called Love Letters. The host is Meredith Goldstein. Meredith gives advice to the LW and then the commentors provide feedback on Meredith's advice as well as give their own advice to the LW or share their own experience as part of the advice to the LW.

    We, the readers/commentors, do not care about your analysis or personal feelings for or against other commentors. We do not care if you "cheer" someone on during a chat or whether your life's mission is to give attention to those you feel are seeking it. Both are indicative of bigger issues within your own existence, so we would like to encourage you to submit your own letter to Meredith.

    We now return to the regularly scheduled program.
