It wouldn't be that difficult to create a script that would merge both boards posts together :lol:

This "meta" thing rings a bell. Is that not what Coan's shtick has been about all along? He's a "meta artist" and BCB is his pallate, relentlessly posting absurdity after absurdity to see if we'd go along - and we did. This new board is his pièce de résistance. And he's even got some suckers to go along.

So apparently what had gone wrong with YY was people disagreed with Coan and now he has set up a board where people don’t disagree with him.
Is that right?
I can’t see anything else that setting up a different board with the same people posting the same old shit will achieve.

But it is nice that he has a hobby to stop him wandering Whitehaven shopping centre during the day freaking out the old people, my Uncle Dave lives up there and he doesn’t need that.

I wasn't invited and as I haven't even looked at YY for months I can't think of a reason why I would.

If I am suddenly overcome with the desire to talk about The Stooges or The Fall I am sure you will contribute here and can't delete my posts when I say I don't really like Funhouse much.

Not at all! just wanted to check how you and the other fellas are coping without me.

It'll take time, I guess. Best not to hang around this thread too much, tho' "Fuery" - get out and do something with your life! Weren't you a keen flower arranger?

That's an excellent point for those with a sound mind like you and I but for the bully-boy it means everything.

The soft-lad needs his fix of self-adulation.

He can dish it out but he can't take it - he flounces and takes his henchmen with him

As a proud prog goon I say good riddance

Prog threads will be even better without him

What other reason could there be for him replicating YY but under his authority?

It isn't to talk about stuff that wasn't talked about on YY it was obviously so that the stuff he doesn't want to talk about isn't talked about.

Try starting a load of Prog threads over on "Puberty" and see how long you last :)

It isn't "under his authority" any more than BCB is under Jethro's "authority". Coan has complained for years that the music talk on BCB has died a death - even you yourself have said you don't bother posting on YY any more - and there are a lot of us who largely or partly agree that anything interesting swiftly gets buried under all the prog, RIP, "now playing - secondhand coloured vinyl only edition" and other tedium.

Yes John can be a knob, we all know that, even John himself, but there's nothing sinister or dictatorial about his setting up a new board. It's just an attempt to get away from the bloated mess that the main part of BCB is these days.

So that is under his authority then. Jethro has summarily banned people like Yellow Jacket, Googa and Skope from here.

So again it looks like you agree with me, he is replicating YY but removing the stuff he doesn't want to talk about.
It just looks utterly pointless and says more about his inability to deal with people who like different sorts of music rather than a real desire to talk more about the sort of music he likes, which is totally available to him on YY.

Th reason YY is moribund is not that people who like prog post there, it is because we have talked about almost anything and everything we want to talk about, starting up a new board with the same people isn't going to change that, there will be a initial burst of enthusiasm and then it will be just like YY without the prog.

Yes John can be a knob, we all know that, even John himself, but there's nothing sinister or dictatorial about his setting up a new board. It's just an attempt to get away from the bloated mess that the main part of BCB is these days.


I get he loves music but he is also highly intolerant of music as well and I don't see how setting up a board that is broadly based around his musical tastes is going to achieve in the long term

This isn't an accurate statement is it? As I write this, there are only 7 prog related posts on page 1 of YY. Admittedly there have been more at various times, but is ludicrous to claim that prog drowns out every other genre of popular music.

I suppose it doesn't help that the (real) Carlsson posts in a passive aggressive and stilted style which is off-putting to even hardcore prog fans. He has even carried this approach over to his postings in the Facebook group for readers of Prog magazine. I find his calling Coan a bully a bit rich when he seems to ignore this behaviour in his own postings.
