Coan's new board - It's all gone a bit Pete Tong

Postby Powehi » 10 Jan 2019, 08:12

Not sure why other posters above are too scared of Coan to release his new board's URL, the details took
about two minutes to find.

http://preludin.proboards.com


The style in which he'll admin his new board took slightly longer.





Aside from "did you get invited and are you bothered either way?"
the big question is, have Coan and his fellow defectors administered
BCB's (arguably) long-overdue last gasp?

See you in the cornfield...

I see that solarskope has joined, perhaps it was announced on fb. Obviously, I did not get invited, it would have been surreal if I did.

It’s kind of sad to see the same posts being made there thar could be made here. It dilutes this place but it doesn’t seem to be offering anything new.

It has to be said that the music board there is a lot livelier than YY is..at least currently. It's nice to see some of the old faces like Brotherlouis, Angshu, Di Maio posting again, but I do wonder why they left BCB in the first place if they wanted to chat about music.

Presumably for non-musical reasons, as is definitely true of others returned to the fold there. ;)
And Hugh, there's nothing to stop people posting threads in both places, as I've just done with my lyrics quiz.

I got an invite surprisingly given that I'm a full on Prog Goon and I'd have thought they would all be banned :lol: . Anyhow that old Groucho Marx quote immediately sprang to mind :)

I'll check it out but I bet there is no Sport section :x

Kudos to Googs!

He's driven Coan from the board :lol:
I've been talking about writing a book - 25 years of TEFL - for a few years now. I've got it in me.

Are you kidding? There's probably a section devoted to the deviltry that is I.

But seriously, was there some kind of blow up, did he flounce? I barely post for while and look what I miss...

Bet he made goat boy his vice president.

Way too much stuff going on in my life right now to devote attention to another board.

He is a typical bully-boy - he can dish it out but he can't take it
