The one I go to is No Homers Club. It has been referenced in the DVD commentaries in the past, and executive producers Bill Oakley and Josh Weinstein have posted there on numerous occasions. It's a cool place to be but, again, the people are a mixed bag. The moderating is good though, better than here, I would say.

Oh god, my computer is going so slow, words cannot describe it. It's taken me this long just to be able to see my last post appear. I, uh, think I better restart this piece of junk.

I think messageboards are great if you find the right one. Without this place I wouldn't have met so many wonderful people...and Rob33.

I know....some people are just plain stupid. I think the Toll points count as speed cameras too.

That he "meant to have them as two paragraphs." The phrasing doesn't make sense split up. It only makes sense together. And it's clear what his intent was anyway. He's just going way out of his way to not look dumb, and has made it worse.

OH that, yeah. I mean, generally, I don't mind Rob, but the way he's acting right now is just plain immature. why can't people on this board discuss

Hurrah, slow as hell computer is not quite slow as hell after restarting it. Shame it for some reason didn't offer to restore my old Firefox tabs, but I can live.

Ah, yeah, I remember poking around there in about 2003 but never registered. I think the place I joined was just some minor forum. No idea why I even chose it. It was back before I'd even thought of using Axver as a screen name. I registered as Axver at the second forum I used (first I actually posted at) and the rest is history.

There are things I want to say, but I just don't want to get involved in that thread. Mostly, I just want to know if he's ever admitted he's wrong before.

I have feeling he hasn't. I point blank asked him to stop the madness and just stop saying Coldplay is ripping off U2. He of course just left this and ignored it. Even for as stubborn as I can often be I admit at some point I was in the wrong, accept someone else's point of view or just plain let it go.
