is it me or has the BB become boring

  1. Ok I need to say this I feel that the board has become boring since certain members have left I used to enjoy the quizes and the banter (scottish slang) for talk/conversation even though I rarely posted my results I still did them. I'v noticed that not many people are posting, and I'm sorry but I for one miss wendy and heather and I want to know how vegas's love life is going and whos sitting in the big chair, so maybe if any of them are 'lurking' they could just post a small reply to something to liven things up a bit. Thats it really all I needed to say.

    Unfortunately, chrisrob, I am afraid those that left are not welcome back.
    For some reason, certain posters are welcome back and others aren't.
    I've yet to figure this one out

    As a relative new comer, I do not know exactly what went on, although this bb is definitely more toned down than when I first joined in and yes, I miss the banter however, as a new comer there are somethings that are better we do not get involved in because we will never know the entirety of the whole big picture. I am sad that some have for some reason worn out their welcome and am glad that there are others that left are now returning. I would not say that I qualify as the life of the party or as racey exciterment (deliberate sp ) but I can absitively posolutely try to liven things up with in the reasonable (or not so reasonable.........sssshhhhh!!!! I'll be in trouble if that is seen ) boundaries so graciously (or not so graciously....sheesh! there I go again!! lol lol )pelled out in the TOS.

    So join in, chrisrob and help make this a lively bb for everyone!!

    Why on earth would they not be welcomed back? Whatever unfortunate thing happened here, I would certainly welcome them back, but I can only speak for myself.

    Write them an email and tell them that you miss them. People may not come back, but they might appreciate the fact that they are missed.

    a few comments have been made by remaining members that they feel slighted by comments that the board is now boring,indicating that they are boring. But honestly, it is much more than that. l feel that not only is the board less lively because of the misssing posters, but many who have remained have had their enthusiasm dampened greatly by the mood set here surrounding the circumstances and many of the moderaters reaction to them...at least from my POV...

    And some of them have been banned. Apparently though the "Banned" doesn't appear in the logos anymore. Wonder why?

    From lurking, I can tell you what happened. Certain members were targeted and harassed by mods until they left.

    Then, by some weird twist of logic, the same group of mods deleted threads and posts to make the people who left look like the "bad guys."

    About a week later, a couple of the members who left were cruising the board under invisible mode (you check the box on your options when you sign up), and nrskaren actually posted the list, in its entirety, on one of the threads.

    Which of course, sparked a few of the former members to anger.


    Now if my hunch is right, this post will be deleted because this group of mods/admins can't stand to hear the truth from someone who actually witnessed the whole thing and has the intestinal fortitude to speak up about it.

    And some posters who should have been banned haven't. Some of them continue to post racist, degaratory remarks that surely are more offensive than some of the other now "banned" posters.

    Does seem to be two sets of rules around here. A friend of mine at work has a little saying about the way promotions are handled at our facility: "Screw up, move up." Wonder if the same applies here?

    IMHO.......the more exuberant folks are the missing ones either by choice or by force....I feel sad that we can not all get along and have a grand old time. If someone finds me boring, I can not help it....what you see is who I am......I just do not wish to be drawn into a nasty vindictive arguement that I knew nothing of to begin with...*thinking........Is there a song Why can't we just get along?????* hmmmmmm:stone

    PS

    At one point during this heated problem, someone likened this BB to a patient. I'm only advocating for my "patient" here, not lying or disguising the truth as some have.
