I'm not aware of that conversation.

Then we need to have it now, pete? If BCB were an animal, it would have been put down by now. It has served its purpose. Can't we just give the old place some diginity? When the likes of Charlie O just want to keep it going because of 'The Word Association' thread, then you know it's on a sticky wicket. Even Jolly Ups are into single figures. John Coan has his new board which has taken BCB's most active posters away and Facebook took the board's more inconsequential posters years ago. As I'm sure you're aware, this board costs money to run. Do you really want Jethro to continue forking out keeping it afloat only to be rewarded by inane Simply Red threads? Let's give BCB the eminence it deserves before it sinks even further into the mire.

Ooooh, get her! I can certainly understand why you have a vested interest in this place but it's posters like you who are destroying BCB's legacy. When was the last time you posted anything of interest? Seriously, ask yourself.

Destroying BCB's legacy? Don't be so bloody stupid. When you come on here acting like a twat we get messages asking for you to be banned. and we always end up having to defend you. You've set up your own board to get away from Googamooga. You've got the same people having the same conversations and now you're calling for the plug to be pulled on here.
Again, what does it matter to you?

And yet you have nothing of interest or consequence to to say on the topic. Can't you just keep it to Facebook?

By the way, you forgot to delete 'gobJetsbors'.

What in the same way as you keep this place going to make yourself popular.

Your ego is unbelievable.

You're funding this place to feed it, aren't you?

I was talking about your ego.

Nevermind, you've been caught with your BCB trousers around your ankles.

Hardly.
The site was kept up with whip rounds at jolly-ups. I don't know where any other money has come from.
Frank has contributed more than his fair share, I think.

Join his board? Most of the posters left here are, like me and you, people who can't abide Coan and wouldn't want to join the lickspittles who suck up to him on his board and rush to back him up every time he comes on here. Not that he'd wish to have us in the first place.

As for Coan's "appearing to be really popular" that's infinitesimally less likely to happen than his actually becoming
really popular.

Why don't you and your lack-of-attack dog, Moddie, fuck off back where you came from and don't let the door bang you on the arse on your way out.

Fuck off I've been here since 2004, have been an administrator for a good ten years and have contributed financially to the site on many occasions at JU's. What's been your contribution?
