We put up a great stories Monday, vitriolic to the very core, I just knew it would get some of you running to the keyboard to pick a side. As of this posting, we received 9,113 hits I knew they were great topics as we have getting between 3000-3500 hits a day and today it was buzzing. But I’ll be damned if I could get any of you to reach inside and post a regular flamer pro or con. Go figure.
Today Steve Brown graced our site, grabbed me by the nap of the neck and showed you all how to engage in the art of posting. We had a jolly good time verbally wrestling. No blood was shed, no bones were broken. The important thing is we were able to get a lot of information out in a really entertaining way.
So once again we are at this crossroad you and I…. My regular crew are pounding out the stories and commentary, each one more salacious than the last, hoping that you will engage. We know you are out there reading.
It seems that many of you are unwilling to stick your neck out and post here. I guess we have a “Trample the dead, hurdle the weak” reputation around the tea and crumpet crowd that post their weak assed shit in the local papers. The advantage here is you are on your own from the get-go.
Most of the regulars are posters from the days of BBS’s and Usenet. We all adhere to the “take no prisoners” posting rules of those early boards. Sure we are a little rough around the edges and we all are quick to attack when we see blood in the water, but we all have a soft spot for the new guy. All the new guy has to remember is the bell rings the moment his first post is approved for the comment section, he must keep his guard up at all times and their will be no saving by the bell.
Pretty simple rules. basically just a few: Never drop the “F” bomb, no one wants to hear about your sex life, the only ones that troll are the authors, no belly aching, and never, ever take what is said here personal.
Grammar and spelling while important for some, like the Steves… (being a dyslexic you’ll notice I can murder the language) as long as you get your point across with the minimum of slaughtering of the English language its alright with me. I’ll go in and fix it if it is too bad.
Remember this is an electronic blog, generally the authors and I will never really know who you are unless you want to join the Front Page Staff.
Now touch gloves and come out writing.
