Anyone else got a PM from Coan inviting them to join Preludin this morning?

in reality, all of this has been a total load of old bollocks

I've just read Anna's post which I must have missed. FWIW I don't remember any of those things being said and am somewhat doubtful they were. I would have certainly said something if they were.

Glad to hear it!
Y’all have a search function on there presumably? So you could easily check.

There was a thread, which Ray moved to some secret room, where some not so nice things were said. But I don't remember those things specifically being said and because I have no access to its location I can't check now. At the time I made a point of registering my opposition to some of the things that were said, so my conscience is clear there, but I can see it was an episode that didn't reflect very well on that board.

Anyway I've missed chatting to you. Did you and Mike celebrate the Biden victory?

Read the Trump thread for a Biden celebration summary!

I don’t remember reading stuff about wrenches etc
Any insults batted back and forth between the boards have seemed pretty tame really. Rampant misogyny wouldn’t be tolerated in either place, and to suggest that it would be is a sad indictment.


I don’t read everything though.

I do - well, not in film and TV, but there's hardly likely to be anything controversial in there - and I agree with fonz. There was a lot of nastiness in the thread G mentioned, which is why I put it away, but I don't recall anything like what Minnie was told was on there.

well, that's all very reassuring. except that bit about "a lot of nastiness." otherwise, all roses and tequila over there, i reckon. i am so sure there is no one there who indulges in lily-livered, petty, gossipy, third-grade insults. right.

i've made it very clear on multiple occasions that i think cross-board squabbling is stupid, especially considering all the nasty shit goin on in the world. my preference is to connect. to all y'all still posting here, i love yas. to anyone who actually needs a thread somewhere else dedicated to BCB, yes, ya might have a problem. maybe insecurity issyews? maybe ya need a cat scan? sumthin needs worked out.

but a sincere question: do y'all have a lotta women from here over there? hmm? i'm guessin not. (i'll be happy to stand corrected.)

geeee, i wonder why not.

it's a mystery.

have ya ever pondered that?

There's hardly any women here either Kath!

It's probably about the same at Preludin as here.

i'll take yer word for it, although i doubt the numbers are the same.

i know the women who post here, though. and there could be an itsy teensie lil reason the women here don't post there. could it possibly be becuz coan didn't even bother to invite any women who may've, ya know, given him any flak in the past? mwhahaha. that could be a reason. i can think of others.

no one seems to get that i've always been fond of coan, for a buncha reasons. i'm not sure even he gets it. (i don't take the time to photoshop any BCBers, let alone on multiple occasions, if i aint fond), but he is also a raging fucquer, and we all know it.

you can both sides it if ya want. i'm not really buying that, though. coan... and skope (another fucquer i am fond of) have alienated almost all the women here. surely you know that, right?

that is no comment against you or any of the cross-posters and all, as i tried to say in my previous post.

but of course, i really should only speak for myself. and i am. although i think i am in a female minority of one around here in being fond of coan and skope. mwhaha.

others can come and prove me wrong, and i'm good with that.

I post there sometimes. Here, too. People get on my tits in both places, so I don't post that often in either :D

thanks for this.

ya know, it makes me really glad for facebook, even though zuckerberg is such a shit.

i only post here and on FB, and it took me many months just to get back into that groove, mwhaha. so what i am missing may be quite a bit, especially on boards i don't read. i have probs keepin up with the board i *do* read. if it weren't for synch listens, album covers and urgent presidential politics...

Not buying what? Anyway to answer your question, it's not something I'm aware of. I'd say the sample size of women on both boards is way too small to draw any conclusions.

::smack:: too kind, belle.

it's important, of course. understatment. i am watching the majority of decent, good americans tryin to save the country from the worst part of itself. i know i'm ever a closet... or, okay, outed... sap, but i think they will win.

it's just incredible to be living through a time like this. then again, i recall being a wee sprout and watching on tv dogs get set on peaceful black protesters in the south, so i guess i shouldn't really be that surprised.

as for boards, i do mean what i have said on many occasions. it doesn't matter, people. i wish no one over there anything but grooviness, and i love everyone here with only a few exceptions that i have made very clear, as i do consider this my home... and i've posted on a whole slew of boards, before i found this one. there's a reason i do my beezle things here. there's a reason reap corner is here. nuff said.

it's okay. what i am apparently going by is what happened in the past and the incredible friction i saw with coan and skope vs female members of this board. sometimes, i need an updating. mwhaha. i have missed a lot. don't mind me.

and thank you for the offer. it's not that i have a single thing against that board, i don't. it really is a matter of focus for me. i gotta streamline. i have a hundred emails from the past year i am never gonna open. i consider it one of my goals in life never to open them. sticking with here and FB, that's my speed. absolutely nuthin personal.

This, to the...err...lettre. Well, I probably post a touch closer to 'often' in both places, but yeah...neither place is the Valhalla it would like to claim.

I also don't think there's anywhere to go online that's not at least 10% toxic these days. On the whole, better to listen to music, read books, cook food, get some air...

Basically, neither place has earned my unlimited devotion or my unrelenting ire. And I doubt either ever will. So many more important things to worry about.

I post mostly on Preludin (but not too often). Some of my favourite people/posters from BCB are women and I do secretly wish they would all post there too.

I don't think I matter much in the grand scheme or small scheming of these things so I don't know what this is worth...

But I had more or less given up even checking/reading BCB because I found it either boring or offensive. Initially I didn't care for Preludin either, but now I find enough people and posts there that keep me entertained so there I am. There was a time I went to check BCB and just found some vile things, and one particularly misogynistic thread that completely put me off, so I stopped visiting here for a while.

Just recently I checked in here because of Kath's awesome political posts (I was DESPERATE for anything I could get on the election) and I wished again I could just go to one place for all the good stuff. But I don't dare hope that the good times will continue roulez-ing here, as irksome threads will come back and I don't see myself posting here much anymore, though I don't have anything against this place.
