Thanks for posting here
« on: April 26, 2017, 09:18:39 am »
Hey everyone,

Thanks for posting here, truly. I know the forum seems to be dying out a bit. Personally, I'm swamped with work at the moment so I don't have much time to put into posting. Many of you post between both forums and I really appreciate it (even when I don't agree with your views). Since I'm permanently banned from there, I be able to return to posting there. Much appreciation to Smallc for setting this place up and maintaining it, as well as moderating it. I hope we can keep this forum alive.

I haven't been posting much at the other place either lately.

That seems to be the trend every year. People stop posting through the summer.

I'm dying in bed today.  I wish there was more to read here.

Until now, I've been crazy busy.

Seriously, this is the longest stretch that I've been away from the other place (going on 3 months).  When I go back to read some of the threads, I really don't miss it.

Is it "hot enough" for you over there. :D

I would also like to express my thanks and the hope for this forum to grow.



Omni, hot enough is pretty quiet lately, have you, Rue and Hydraboss finally done him in or is he just reloading?

I keep finding myself looking over my shoulder today.

I had an unexpected development take place the last couple of months and I always take less interest in politics when life happens.  I've had time to digest it all and ultimately find happiness in it even though it's not something I would've chosen on my own. 

I will be around more from now on and I would love to see this place pick up a bit as I miss having political chats.  MLW is not a forum I enjoy given the moderation. 

I wish we could somehow have this site SEO'd and have new participants.  I think it has great potential.

Probably bad grammar but search engine optimized.

I just bought web traffic - lets see how many trolls pop up.

True, I guess that's the down side.  At least there is hope that you will actually define what trolling IS once and for all!   ;D

And thank you for creating and maintaining the forum.  Sincerely.

I concur with your recent comment of the moderating at MLW and especially within the context of trolling. The last time I got sent to the penalty box it was due to the fact I replied to something the trloller of all trolls (I'm sure you likely know of whom I speak) had made but I hadn't looked at the OP prior, so I guess that was my bad. Anyway I got whacked for derailing a thread, that had already been completely derailed by you know who. I expect the population here will grow in due time.

I don't know who, actually, there are several unchecked trolls there (four off the top of my head) but one of them I give the benefit of the doubt may not be trolling but just painfully hopeless.

Personally I never got penalized there, one warning point in 10 years and no suspensions.   I'd like to think it's because I'm a respectful poster but then again so are many others who have shared ridiculous suspension stories, so who knows, maybe the mods took it easy on me. 

For me, I just couldn't take all the incessant deleting, it really takes away from the discourse.  While I've been gone they implemented all the popularity changes and now I don't really even like the feel of it anymore.   

Watch, next election I'll be back though.
