Please Ann, don't go. You were a great person around here....I don't know why but it just seemed like that one day you just blew up to everyone(me and James on one thread, this whole argument.) But I loved discussing things with you before that and I would love to continue to do so.
Lord knows if everyone left around here after every disagreement, there would be no one left.

[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC] Thanks Ashley
THE ACM 2009 & 2010 EOTY HAS A NEW LAST NAME.... UNDERWOOD
Congratulations Carrie for your Triple Crown Win!!
Ann, you have been a great asset to CF, we need you to tweet and give us the updates when the album and single drops. Please don't leave, every family have their share amount of arguments and fights.
First of all, I have posted three times with two edits and the last time, I sent the reply and it was gone except for your post. In any event, I will try again (maybe there is something wrong with my laptop).
I sent you a nice tweet and lo and behold, I found out that I was unfollowed by you. I really wish you could have read the tweet because I wanted to work out our differences. Your facts are incorrect (maybe it is because my laptop has problems...) I would like to talk with you regarding our differences, however I will not talk to you at CF because everyone loves you and even though I am a very positive poster, except for this time, I am recieving horrible, nasty posts on CF. I have not even looked at twitter yet. I am pharaphasing Nanny's DM -- but she said this started because of my DM to her. That is totally wrong. I love Nanny and asked her opinion. Before that, I thought long and hard; never tweeted, never posted and I am the villian and I have been told eliefares is loved by everyone. I rarely post negative things (check it out), however I am hated by this post and incorrect information was given. Russ has also left the board...there's a pattern IMO. I did not spam MIKE. I will never post again on CF again.
This is for Ann005 & Ellie. Please don't leave CF...
I, too, love you and enjoy your company. I wholeheartedly hope that you will not leave us. You are correct, before this incident, your posts had been nothing but positive and friendly. I am sure that the majority of us are confused as to why you reacted the way you did because it completely conflicts with who we had previously interacted with.
On the subject of Russ, as far as I know he did not leave due to conflict. He told me something in confidence, but it had to do with a personal issue and did not concern this site or any of its users.
^^^Hi Ann, a post from you did appear in this thread (#16) which is similar to your most recent post (#26). Take care, Pi.
Seems to me like there was miscommunication if anything.
What you two need to do is talk it out, find out where things went downhill. I'm not sure what this is all about but there is no need to be dramatic and "leave" Carriefans. Everyone genuinely likes everyone here even with our differences. This message board was created by and continues to thrive on our mutual love and respect for Carrie Underwood. Leaving Carriefans shows blatant disrespect toward your fellow fans and Carrie. I don't know if she visits here, but I'm positive she'd feel bad that a fan was leaving over something that really is SO SMALL. That is my take on it...
It seems to me both parties could have handled things a bit more maturely, but in the end we're all Carrie fans and we're here to support her, not make things about us. Now go somewhere and talk about it and move on!
I say this with the utmost respect for both of you. You're both genuinely nice, caring people - at least that's what I read from your posts. It is clear to me that this all stemmed from a misunderstanding on one parties' part. This can easily be resolved, and things can go back to normal. Just don't leave, Ann, with things unresolved, that would be immature, in my opinion. I don't see the hate you're talking about, Ann. It seems that most of the people are begging you to stay, and others are just advising you on how to present yourself better over the internet when spoken words and facial expressions cannot be used to help your case. Simple grammatical corrections can help to make you look much more knowledgable and mature. Advice on that should be taken if you want to become a better understood poster. I've had trouble with it in the past (being misunderstood) so when I was given advice, I'd always take it and now I think I'm much better. Just my thoughts on this, I hope I don't offend anyone...
And my second bag of popcorn is now popping (I have a bit of a problem).
Well I enjoy all of your posts. I think all this is just a by product of having not much Carrie news to talk about. I think if you both looked into each others eyes you would find much common ground. Typing on a keyboard makes us all say stupid things from time to time that we would never say to someone in person. Don't forget that there's someone on the other end of your posts that have feelings also. And just remember why your here. It's because of the incredible Carrie Underwood.
Could we please cut the crap and the childish arguing..........and get back to what's most important........OUR SWEET CARRIE.........her new album will be out soon......lead single even sooner........what if Carrie saw this?......think about it.......if you both have something to talk about......please not here......do it in a PM.......we have to much Carrie work coming up to worry about who said what and when........more #1's and a hit album is more important than that!!!
It's against the law to be nice to anyone these days. Regardless how nice they talk to you. Everyone is a smarty pants. Paying back evil for evil is cool. So they say.
All I've been able to do is read all the posts here on this topic, and the posts on Elie's blog. If it's gone elsewhere too, I think it's very sad.
As far as I can tell, it all began because two or three people (who are not members here, but visit here occasionally, and don't like what they see on this board) posted criticisms on Elie's blog. For the most part, those criticisms were general, but one of the posters in particular made derogatory reference to one of our regular posters by name, and a couple of them referred to another member whom they admired, but who may or may not have left, in their view, because he may have shared some of their concerns.
The point is, none of us have any control over those people's opinions, what they post, or where they post it. They're free agents, entitled to their opinions, and they'll presumably go on airing their concerns where they find an opportunity.
The assumption seems to have been made, at the start of this issue, that Eliefares, the owner of the blog, is in some way responsible for those posters - and that seems to have lain at the root of the heartfelt post that began the heated part of the discussion. I respect the strength of feeling - but that assumption is based on a misunderstanding. Blogs are usually open to reply - by random members of the public who visit the site and reply, usually with a simple board name, and a hidden e-mail address. The owner of the blog expects a variety of views - but he is not the one making the replies. If anyone has an issue with the replies, they are in turn free to make their own reply, giving a different perspective (which is what Tee did). All the replies can then be read together - which I think is preferable to making it an issue here or elsewhere , where much of the discussion may be out of context and confusing.
I'm sorry if I'm stating the obvious - but I think most members here like and respect Tee, Elie and Ann, value posts from all of them - and don't want to see a battle over who's loved or hated the most.
Please don't lets allow those random critics from outside (who are entitled to their own views) divide us and divert us from what we all hold and like in common - Carrie and her music!
Just sent you some! Virtually, of course!
This issue is none of my business and I don't intend to make it.
But one thing - it is completely unnecessary and inappropriate to tweet Mike about ANY issue on this board, any blog or article, etc.
Since I like to butt in to things that aren't my business...
Also, nobody on CFs was really hating on you. Twitter? Maybe yeah. I've seen a few things.
Russ would never let users on here drive him away. I'm sure there's a different reason he hasn't posted lately. He didn't even let getting banned from this site because he backtalked TS fans drive him away.
Just thought I'd pitch in my two cents while I'm avoiding The Grapes of Wrath.
