Hey fuckers, Kay/Pregnant Sally, now Suzannevega here (didn't mean to use that for a username), just call me Kay for the love of Gawd. Trying to navigate my way around so thought I'd start this thread to thank Paolo for starting something that we don't have to worry about every single word we use, how we express it, and the content in which we post. Just pathetic how downhill that board has gone, thanks to the iron fisted, rigid mods.
So now now that that is outta the way, everyone who's here now been disenchanted with that board for a while now? Anyone looking forward to talking Bruce politics?
I’m laughing to myself because we have a whole new board here and I still completely forgot to have a username that wasn’t my real name...
Yeah, I've been a member of that board for 13 years and have never so much as received anything resembling warning level. Which doesn't mean shit, just cause you've been around for a while - sometimes that is the clue we need a break - doesn't preclude me from appearing on the shit list but of course it was from the usual suspect and guess what I did, post a political comment on a political thread.
I told Karsten that he ought to take a serious look in the mirror, if they're going to leave a political thread by its very nature up, then randomly deleting non-inflammatory political posts takes the freakin' cake.
Oh hey Josh, haven't seen you since Cali on The River tour!
Mario, good little summary of the shit show. I could add to that but why bother really. Actually, I will, what happened for me is that the Bruce thread a while back that got so many of us put in the corner, I would actually post on the thread, get a PM in the middle from the most rigid mod in the cosmos, and tell me how I could phrase it as to not sound so political, but then if Bruce did say something about politics, I could post about it. Which was funny coz every time I did that my posts were simply deleted which resulted in me finally telling a mod where to go and shove her dictatorial tendencies up her ass.
So had I continued I would be banned, no doubt. I was put on a "warning" and that was enough for me. So yeah, not worth it for a lot of us, simple as.
Nicely done K, well said.
So what exactly happened over on GL? (aside from janey and her cake)
Calvo has had some life happening over the last while, it's been a while since I've heard but as far as I know he's alive.
Anyone know how to get in touch with The Calvary...?
Hi Kay, quite an entrance you made there! Really good to see you, I was wondering where you had gone.
Way to enter a room by pulling the door off it's hinges! Welcome.
Welcome Kay!!! Glad you are here.
Hi Kay, Kie here. I posted as Paolo's Circus Story on the other board, but I'm going by Mario Brega now.
I appreciate the thanks, but honestly I didn't do anything worthy of praise! The props should go to Ibbhomero for setting this place up, and to Jerseyfornia and Buddhabone for pretty much setting the wheels in motion.
Good to see you back posting, whatever the forum and whatever alias you're going by!
Kay - if you go on your profile there is an edit button that would allow you to change your screen name (if that’s what you want!)
Is Louisa my beloved Sylvia? As you guys can likely interpret, I've been listening to so much Vega recently, forgotten just how damn good of a writer she is. Left of Centre anyone? Fantastic song.
I will go back to Kay however, once I figure that shit out.
Hello Kay! Its good to hear from you!
If I'm not mistaken, you can still change your screen name, if you want to? If you want to go back to Kay, that is?
Hi Kay, (Suzanne)
all these new identities can get an old lady confused. Glad to see you joined us. I would have missed your voice, otherwise.
