Know thyself: Aprilbelle

But he that dares not grasp the thorn Should never crave the rose.  (Anne Bronte)

 

know

the thing you crave

choose wisely

see

foil lacks substance

rose withers

 

“It is the time you have wasted for your rose that makes your rose so important.”

              So and in essence you are clueless about light (since you live in the dark)!

      What’s this? Who’s spamming you?

      July 28, 2014
      1. yayuki

        I don’t know some guy puts this advertise on all of my posts since yesterday

        July 28, 2014
        1. mellow_firefly

          I experienced it when i was new here but only for a brief period of time…Chinese ads.

          July 28, 2014
          1. yayuki

            That is a possible, as far as I know Chinese law is not against advertising in comments on blogs, and I have no idea on which server in which region this programm is running so I have no idea what the opinion or law of thoughts is on this…

            July 28, 2014
        2. mellow_firefly

          I just ignored those ads that appeared in my blogs they weren’t plenty though.

          July 28, 2014
          1. yayuki

            I simply don’t like the idea of people doing this… it shows a lack of respect for others don’t you think

            July 28, 2014
        3. mellow_firefly

          That’s right…a spam alright…unsolicited ads appearing in your blogs shows lack of respect. I don’t know why Thoughts management allow this thing to happen.

          July 28, 2014
          1. yayuki

            I don’t know either… have to see it will show up in other posts, too… I mailed support on this because I think it bothers people and well I can’t speak for all people here but I think some people will be confused especially those who can’t read english well…

            July 28, 2014
        4. mellow_firefly

          This thing doesn’t last long at least in my case.

          July 29, 2014
          1. yayuki

            I think it stopped already on my posts today were no adds

            July 29, 2014
