Orange is a gross colour.

I think you and Waldo both define anyone who doesn't have an alter to Fidel Castro as a redneck.

Rednecks do tend to have that sort of reaction to being called out. Of course you are free to support Fidel at your leisure. That of course you will recognize as a bit of a mimic of another right wing rednecked, slightly DOPy guy from "the other place. Oh what fun.

Not surprisingly, my favourite colour too.

Greg has asked me to pass on the following statement, and im doing this as a one time favor to him, this does not mean i am working for greg or MLF.

Ok, I absolutely do not want to lose more people, and I'd like a few of those posters to return.

I'm not talking about anything formal I just need a few level headed members  who can provide feedback to me on things that are particularly troublesome in the forums.

How about this... I'll start a private club and then we can invite some of these disgruntled members (the one's that have left) to come into the club and share their thoughts with me privately.

Some folks, particularly those that have left, think I don't care what they think... they're wrong.  I want to make this forum a welcoming place for everyone, it's just that whenever there was a particular thread that was started by someone who was pissed off about something (another poster, moderation action, etc) it almost always devolved into a negative shit show - with little valuable that I can actually act on.

If you could relay  that message back to those you've been in contact with, I'd really appreciate it.

GIMME A BREAK.  Waldo had a great reply to this.  We've all tried to give feedback, constantly over the years to Greg and Charles.  If they didn't want to listen it's their fault.  Greg doesn't deserve any of us going back.  I think MH and SirJohn still frequent those dusty chambers, my advice to you guys I'll quote from Kylo Ren:  "Let the past die. Kill it if you have to".  In other words, don't support a shithole by keep posting there.

I PM'd Greg a few months ago after the above post, I gave him some thoughtful feedback, i didn't mince words, i told him it was his fault they didn't listen to us, and told him to fire Charles if he wants any improvement in the forum.  I didn't receive any reply from Greg.  So get bent Greg.

Well, they DID make the thing in the first place so it's not like we're the experts here.  They are. 

I just wish that we could go back a few years - there were much better people on there then.

Yeah, and it was really good for awhile.  Then they got arrogant and ruined the place.

I did a little evangelizing. I feel kinda dirty... like a Mormon or a JW.  Nonetheless, I tried to do some recruiting. I need to go take a shower.

I like this forum. The other place still has value though.

If I want to come at something from the right I'll post here. But if I want to come at something from the left, posting here is like preaching to the choir.

Your #1 mission is to unify the world under a banner of beige miquetoast conformity.  Get out there.

I'm glad you're here. Having posters from across the spectrum keeps things lively!
