And why did they leave? Because the topics became stagnant. When I joined the mind control thread had 200 pages (witch was daunting enough) but apart from the first few pages it seemed that only three/four people where posting on it.
That is a tight knit group that a new member doesn’t want to try and get involved in.
When I made a post on 9/11 I was slaughter by making a very valid point, the order of the attacks are wrong and so are the targets, I named what targets I would have attacked and I was accused of playing some sort of sick game. Did I go back? No I bloody well didn’t, I finished making my point but I didn’t go back because there was no point.
If you don’t let new members in without making the feel stupid or inadequate they’re not going to come back.
I think it's the same fight 99% of the time though fort.
they do give you a good laugh though.

i thought snipes were ok on topic.
i'm not talking snipes..
snipes hunting is snipe hunting..
and why are you taking this SO personal?
as far as UC..
yeah, there is random chat..
BUT it almost ALWAYS goes back to TOPIC..
under a proper heading..
i haven't seen anything like this on whitleys essay column,,
maybe i'm wrong..
maybe we always get side tracked to perogie cook offs on the alien threads..
and, as i said..
hey, it's a free board..
amke of it what you will.
if a chat room suits you..
and you're happy..
it's not my board..
i'm not attacking you individually, or personally..
i am just stating, with observation..
it looks like a CONSPIRACY..
and i know for some that is off topic here..
sorry, i thought this was the conspiracy section..
i may be wrong..
it could be the musical sewer..
and that isn't a snipe..
i really think there's something about romainian sewers here..
so, hey, what IS the conspiracy topic du jour at those threads?
anyone post any such as of late?
didn't think so..
so, i just started my own..
( not really)
One other thing. Pages go across the screen. It’s annoying and fucking hard to read when you have to scroll down all the time because the posted only likes one word on a line.
It makes no sense to people like me. Fine my spelling’s crap, my grammar’s crap but at least I make an effort to make my post legible. When it goes down three pages with vast sections of that page with nothing more than three words on a line that makes it fucking hard work.
One last thing (there's a lot of last things here, sorry for the rant
). I agree that NA’s and Fort’s tread’s are in the wrong place (rambles would have been a better place but it’s not a problem) but if it bothered John he’d have moved it wouldn’t he
. This is not your personally playground Evutch, this is a public board and I suggest you get used to it.
There is very little difference between what you and the others who posted on the mind control thread were doing and what others are doing now.
At least they’re not posting about FBI agents coming to shut the BV down with misinformation; they’re just going on about art and a sane/insane walk.
