I would add, I've met a lot of wonderful people here and it's been a real good experience for me over the last many years. It has turned into a bit of a travel club too, eh? One of the nicest side steps of the board. There have been some successful relationships developed. It's seen it all.

Speaking of which I will be in San Diego for the last week of Dec and the first of Jan. Any SoCal BCBers want to meet and swap conspiracy theories? :D

Dude, get your ass up to LA. It's only a two-hour drive (as long as you don't do it during the day). You need to get hip to Agenda 21 - 9/11 is kid's play compared to that!

My problem is I'll be spelling my sister taking care of my old mom so I don't know my schedule. I'll contact the board when I get there and let you know. Is there no one of us in SD?

I think Zoom and Six String are right - nothing lasts forever. Sad but so true.

Some feel the discussion has been exhausted, but I think JC is also right - there are always things to talk about. Old AND new.


I voted for 5 years ago, cuz that's when I joined so it's all I know. I went with that becuz there were more people here back then.

The obvious answer is "When we talked about the world outside, and not about the machinations of BCB itself".

I don't think it's ever been "great" but it has been very good at times. There were past years when there was a lot more traffic but that doesn't necessarily equate with greatness. It would be nice if there was a bit more traffic these days as I do notice very long periods with barely a post which is unusual even given my time zone which has always been a quiet period of the day for the board and the reason I miss the missing antipodean posters that would post while I'm around.

BCB could have been great, but there's always that same problem. Women. Just women getting in the way. Cherchez la femme, you know.

- getting in the way
- look for them

Which is it, man? You are a man, aren't you? Sloppy bit of logic for a chap, there, that's all I'm saying.

I'll tell you when BCB started going down. When the Grinch took the Treasury of Mirth off Nextdoorland is when, which was - hm - about five years ago. Put it back and watch this place flourish again.
