Comment #1 posted on 2020-08-13 06:32:02 by Zen_Floater2

I've learned much.and I'd like to share much as well...

It seems I've gotten the MOST comments on my shows of anyone here in HPR in quite a long time. At first, they came after me for my show notes. When that didn't work, they switched to attacking my tiitles. I ignored that as well. Finally, they are referencing me on OTHER people's shows now. HPR3137 - Ahuka has a comment from one of his viewers and he's addressed it to me, Zen_Floater2. And as a Squirrel who lives in a Magical forrest, I pondered, how should I address this human being??? Why would he ask me about what I thought about Ahuka's show? Ahuka got only one negative comment on his show and Ahuka called the people who didn't follow his narrative stupid idiots I'm guessing from the commentary. Study my work Ahuka and you will get more negative comments over time. I'm a firm believer that if you do, you too can have most of the HPR audience out for your blood. And I've never understood why humans would care about other humans not taking some vaccine. It clearly makes no sense and forces me to climb up a tree sometimes to get awy from Humans. Thank you everyone
