i wonder?

Postby ken2 » Sat Oct 25, 2008 12:17 am

I wonder how was the first to answer on this forum? i am a newbie really, but i think people like Beni and Beachy are their backbone of this forum,why? because they seem to post things that get us all going,then you get people like Cid that comes up with great answers, then you get the girls(they know who they are) that gang up on the blokes,then you get Peachy, that don't care a toss what she says, (bless her) then you get Frog (what?) if it was not for all of these caractors, what sort of forum would we have,so what was it like in the early days???

The big difference in the forum of late is that it is indeed dominated by "newbies" as you call them ,with huge postage rates who similar to yourself have not been on for long.
The poor content of a lot of these posts is only of interest to a few and has in my opinion diluted the boards into a chat room for the lonely.
In amongst that I must admit there is still some valuable info. to be gleaned from the normal posters and sometimes a good topic will appear which gets support from the dissilusioned majority who are recently very quiet.
Funnily enough I don't class Frog man as spoiler, every forum needs a Frog!!! The guys one liners often state a home truth and I've yet to hear him come across as false/pathetic and then nasty like many others.

"and has in my opinion diluted the boards into a chat room for the lonely"

and still you post :?:
I used to trawl these boards a while ago and didnt bother to join as they seemed to be dominated by the select few.Nowadays there are many more members and its much more enjoyable to browse.

Ken,
Thank you for those kind words.

I personally believe that everyone should have a go at posting , maybe the content of their message may not interest everyone, but that's life, and if someone somewhere finds it useful, then that's ok by me.
I don't care how anyone communicates, ok sometimes it is a little difficult to follow if the spelling is not so good,but I'm not going to find fault with anyone who is prepared to spend their time trying to write any topic.
But I don't think that the Forum should be turned into a 'chat-room', if anyone wishes to chat with another member, can I please suggest that they use the PM facility, or exchange e-mail addresses.

Regards,
Gordon

Oh Dear ! Sadly it looks like there are a few 'Oldie' priests trying to keep 'newbies' out of the temple (or at least trying to intimidate them)! Thank goodness there are enough 'oldies' who welcome 'newbies' input. Personally I find this an excellent Forum BECAUSE it gets plenty of 'newbies'- what doesnt grow DIES !!! Of course there will always be a few (very few fortunately) who hold that silly "I was here first - nah nah nah nah!" attitude and feel any 'intruder' needs to be 'put in their place' - hence the 'oh you must be lonely' comments. Those that post most often are usually those with the MOST friends as they prove themselves able to express views wherever it may be and not hide their loneliness in corners sniping at 'newbies' for the sake of their own ego's. There - I think thats all for the moment - thank you 'oldies' (the friendly ones) for maintaining the input and welcoming newbies like me etc.

I was sad and lonely once, before my penis developed into a weapon of mass seduction of course and my bank account became the envy of my contemporaries :D

But seriously (is that possible anymore on A.com) I don't have a problem with newbies, in fact I welcome them, my son, who is shamefully exploited by me for financial gain was a newbie once, I do however have a problem with idiots who post under multiple names (and I do mean multiple) but who are thick enough to use the same or very similar scripts, newbies you are welcome and I for one encourage new blood but please don't patronise us, I'm sure that I'm not the only one who is aware of this ongoing nuisance.
Ah! the full english!!

I am beginning to see how you developed your weapon - but watch out for denucias if you are spotted spreading your seed around like that...remember Georg Michael! :wink: :lol:
