The Walking Dead : Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

I have to admit I'm enjoying all these attacks. They're at least coherent and vigorous, unlike the drooling nonsense we've had in the past. Also, all attacks are fun! But are these guys flogging a dead horse? Is the user-base so small that nothing anyone does will make any difference?

Or do they have a point, and is the nostalgic back-slappery becoming nauseating for non-nostalgic non-back-slappers?


Also, ruthless Reginald analyses are needed….

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

If you didnt spy and you advertised this site on google instead, new and different and diverse and variant users from all over the world.

But who advertises a messageboard website in this age?

Maybe if this site was a competition to twitter then perhaps

here's an idea:

develop an app or a site that surpasses twitter in speedy message transfer over the internet. But that would turn into a chat.

Tweetchat.com

msg2msg.com

something like that

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

This place should go back to where it was for the last year, 6 or 7 new threads per month. I guess that's what they want.

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

Sometimes I forget that other people read this board.

It feels a little bit like a dream. Where you're doing something and you didn't think it was stressful or important, like making a sandwich. Then all of a sudden there are a group of people behind you, telling you how crappy the sandwich is looking. And logically you should be like, "why are you in my house? You don't have to eat this sandwich." but it's a dream so you're just nervously spilling condiments everywhere. You look down and it's not a sandwich anymore, it's your 5th grade English paper. And then you're naked. Bentley's sitting in the corner, smoking a pipe and monologuing.

Hi Bee, it's Clem Fandango.

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

How was that, Clem Fandango?

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

???

Can't you hear me, Bee?

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

Hit the button!!

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

Great introspection in this thread, Bee, it feels really authentic and real, everybody here is really loving it.

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

Really, Clem Fandango? you don't think it's too repetitive? Clem Fandango?

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

Hi Bee, I can hear you!

Bee?

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

That last bit was very hawt.

But seriously: the fact is we're both a self-enclosed family and an entertainment act, and we've always been both. Like a family that does trapeze acts in the circus. Happy freaks. So, insofar as we're happily insular, it's okay to go on being happily insular. But insofar as we're surrounded by people reading everything we write and expressing satisfaction/dissatisfaction, there is some (slight) obligation to be entertaining. Or maybe not.

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

I always felt like we were performing for one another.

You used to talk about people reading the board and us having fans. Horatio also talked about that when he was saying that we needed to keep the board public. And there have been times when people pop in, claiming to not be socks but long time lurkers (I never believed them lol). I always thought it was just you guys, liking to think we have an audience because you're narcissistic psychopaths but I'm being reminded more and more that we're not an island.

I'll try to be more entertaining and representative of our brand.

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

Perhaps the criticism isn't that we're a circus act, but that we're the very same act, unaltered, that has been strolling thru town year after year for the last decade. We're no longer spectator friendly and are instead performing only for ourselves and each other.

PWNED, I say.

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

There's some truth to that. I must get rid of that copy of Bentley's Best Bon Mots from 2013….

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

It baffles me because I will occasionally check out other boards. I don't get GD at all. Soapbox even less so. But I have no burning desire to tell them -OR to keep reading lol. I just keep on trottin

Why do they feel the need to tell us how lame we are?

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

It's partly because we sound so smugly arrogant. After all, these are mostly Americans here, with that American perception that democratic values are the only real values. But it's partly also the fact that we are sometimes quite lame but forgive ourselves so easily (some of your parody threads are truly awful– I'm just slipping that in there because I know I can).

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

Ohhhh blame the Americans!

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

I agree. They're the worst.

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

To be fair, Roachboxers are a bunch of mutated bonobos finger painting in their own feces.

I contend any harsh critique of us from those uninterested in partaking/reading ought to be forwarded to the powers that brought us to their doorstep. We're content to exist in our bubble that only we enjoy. Having said that, it's not a Soapboxer taking us to task.

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

Lol true

Anyone who is judging us should join in! Especially Orson

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

The Walking Dead board threads are now listed on the GD board, so unfortunately for all, you're on show.

The good thing about that is we are aware you're here and we see your potential. The bad thing is you're dull, repetitive, and clearly xenophobic in the true, cowardly sense rather than the superiority sense.

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

Hmmmm. That would presume that there is a sense in which people can be xenophobic for reasons having to do with actual superiority….

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

I suggest you have much to learn about humanity.

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

I think we have fun making fun of soapboxers but we're not xenophobic -maybe Bentz is but the rest of us are cool.

I think our little group just posts here because we know that's where other people from our group would see it. And a lot of it is stuff that other boards clearly find stupid lol. So it makes sense for us to keep it concentrated here rather than try to push it on you guys

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

Spot on! I like to play the role of superior irritating snob because I know it infuriates people. But Bee and the others are nice people who just have fun interacting with each other.

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

that's one of the most straightforward things I've ever seen you say

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

I'm hoping to drive Dazed is Secsy or whoever into a rage. He/she seems to be a promising antagonist.

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

But they're a new poster and completely unbiased

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

This is so true. I'm not sure why this Bentley person is itching for a fight. I've done nothing to them.

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

I suspect they're not new at all, but someone who has been watching us closely, sees our potential, and hates to see it being wasted. He/she is a moral crusader (how odd on a message board!) who wishes to see a new kind of Gemeinschaft coming to birth here.

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

Why not branch out a little? Nobody is stopping you posting here and there. There, of course, being wherever takes your fancy.

You never know, maybe one day you might meet some interesting people like Gameboy (cruises restrooms wearing soiled underwear looking for teenage sodomites), Ryan (3'7" transvestite who regularly posts pictures of black cocks and pussy), PAGG (overweight Mexican homosexual who worships Maria Carey but hates himself, often describes how pleasurable it is to feed himself the wrong way around), and many, many more.

These are fascinating people, with unique lives and hobbies, offering a wealth of experience for those with a taste for adventure.

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

I’ve tried. None of that about those people sounds interesting. I’ve got the same complaints about them as they do about us - you read one post from those people and you’ve read them all.

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

So….sexual deviancy doesn't interest you, Mr hoity toity Landfill Engineer????

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

I don’t find it particularly entertaining. That’s just me though.

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

Actually, I suspect I wouldn't have much to say to the same people. I think what you're getting at (and nobody seems to have noticed yet) is that there is a distinct class element to this whole business. TWD board is oddly middle-class in its orientation. Maybe even upper-middle. Whimsy and carefully presented eccentricity are typically middle-class strategies, while openly crude and sexually colourful language is more associated with working class norms. I feel an analysis working within me (like yesterday's supper, and probably of the same consistency and smell).

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

Barffffffff

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

What are you barffing about? Is it worse than your bite?

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

Nothing, it was just one of the snobbiest things I've seen you say in a while

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

It's not! It's a very accurate analysis. I don't myself attach much value to being middle class. Matter of fact, I detest them.

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

How much do you hate them? The dagger's to your throat, Bentz, are you ready to start a revolution with me and eat the rich or are you too scared you'll scuff your loafers?

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

I will mock them to death and drink their sherry while I do it!

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

That will have to do!

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

Scuff my loafers indeed! You really know how to hurt a guy!

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

Lol I'm sorry I'm just passionate about the revolution!

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

Okay. Just this once I'll forgive you. *Checks loafers for scuff-marks and wipes away his tears.

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

What's interesting, kind of, is the sort of moment you go when you read something and you say to yourself 'wow…somebody actually thinks like that?' It takes you out of yourself a bit. Because most of the people I talk to IRL think and act like me, mostly.

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

So you're saying we ought to hang out with soapboxers, who will take us out of ourselves in a redemptive way?

Re: Is TWD board terrible right now? And if so, why?

'hang out' is a little strong….
