I believe OCMB will never die, that it is un-killable. I, for one, have no plans to abandon ship. I may turn lurker for a while, but that's it. I always check back in for the latest. I still prefer to read what the clambakers have to say about the latest news, compared to anyone else.
Hugs to those who understand that this is where I'm coming from. For those who want to trash Andreas, the man who built what I consider to be an incredible place for people to come and get educated and converse about CoS, I say good-bye
to you. If someone invited you into their home to chat with others, SRF, would you start trashing them over politics? I guess you would. Would you make an announcement, that only 5 people showed up this night, that you don't like what people are saying, so this place must be infiltrated, it must be dying? How rude. If you have the freedom to say these things, then I too have the freedom to call you out on it.
There has been thread after thread of people whining about registrations not being open. Many of you have chimed in your opinions on this over and over. Alright already. Maybe we should sticky a thread on that subject and let people have their last word on that topic so we can get back to more important topics. There are many places for exes to go nowadays. Many boards of many flavors. Perhaps Andreas's original purpose has been fulfilled and he has moved on. If that is the case I am glad the board has been preserved with the few of us left here. If I were Andreas I might get tired of the whining and bitching about me and just end it. Maybe that is what some people want. Well, not me.
Simonymous, your comment is duly noted. But I don't think what I wrote warranted the response it got- the guy calling me a Bitch about 8 times in a row, spamming his own thread with name calling and personal attacks in response to simple sarcasm. I'd like to point out the difference between addressing a person's actions versus direct name calling. Anyway, no one needs to mediate this. I had no personal problem with SRF's responses. When it comes to this particular subject, I admit it, I am a Bitch. At least I point out exactly what someone does that irks me.
SRF, if I find in the future that I cannot come up with peaceful responses to you, I'll simply put you on ignore. I've never done it before, but there's a first time for everything. And you have the same capability. If you don't like what I have to say, placing me on ignore might be a better solution than making yourself look even more like a douche. And if Andreas upsets you that much, you can always place him on ignore as well. That might be better than trying to chase him across the Internet so you can find out what you think is wrong with him and bring it back here to ClamBake.
