I used to love TWOP too, but haven't been in a long time. I don't think I have very many posts in the forums, but it was too much to keep up with.

I've heard she has a crush on me as well. Fact or fiction?

I didn't say that you are an attention whore!

I said that you are like a neutered cat that brings me dead mice. =/=

Compared to some of the sites I've visited over the years, they're less control-freaky here, which is nice.

Honestly, with a few exceptions, I think they do a good job here. Yeah, they miss stuff, and maybe sometimes come down harder on certain people, but they're just people too, you know? I think they do fine.

I try to remember that not everyone wants to sit around and snark all day, and while I can't really relate to those kinds of people (I usually come around to snark around with like-minded folks), I understand why the mods might feel the need to settle shit down, but I think usually they come around when it's appropriate they do so.

I remember getting a warning on Fametracker because I broke a cardinal rule of using netspeak for the purpose of humor. Never gotten warned before, never did anything naughty.

Then one day in a thread about the Phantom of the Opera flick, I busted out with an old board in-joke dating back to the Buffy/Angel days: (OMG! CHRISTINE + ANGLE OF MUSIC 4EVAH!!!!!11!!eleven) and got a slap on the wrist from a mod (Veep - it was WingChung, which shouldn't be a surprise) saying "You know better."

I almost emailed her back with a "Oh, fuck off," but didn't. Because I'm a good girl.

You couldn't even start a post with "Um ..." because it read as a snotty remark, even if you used it to start off an actual question.

Sounds like the type of forum that I would do well in ...

Ha! You think you get scolded here for starting shit (perceived or not)? They were seriously hard-ass about that kind of thing on TWOP/Fametracker. You wouldn't have lasted a day.

Then I kept up with the recaps of shows I liked, but then they stopped being funny and started being too mean. And just people writing because they liked the sound of their own typing.

I think I popped by recently to check out a recap for a show I'd forgotten to watch, and was so turned off by the new format of the site, I didn't bother.
I completely agree with the change of format statement. And all the good, funny recappers of the past seem to have moved on to bigger and better things. Most of the forums that I read are not in the main section of the shows they cover, I read mostly shows that are in the Other Shows section. I think sometimes that because they're not in the main group of shows, those threads aren't quite as heavily moderated. TV Potluck has some pretty funny threads.


Pfan, I find the moderating here pretty fair, and not nearly as heavy-handed as some sites, thank goodness. They let people have fun without it turning into chaos. There is the odd time that I find it kind of arbitrary the way they choose which threads to lock and when, but overall, I think they do a great job here.

You've been to the playoffs since 1967.

You guys. I'm not sure that either of you are on her radar, but I can put in a word. I have influence.

You would have been bounced out on your ass by your second post.

Haha, Wing Chung. One day I got all stalkery and read her blog (can't remember where it was, but one of the sites linked to it). Her and Glark are from Toronto, so I have this weird home-girl attachment to them.

As MMG/BM would say:

My old roomie was from TO, and she had her blog bookmarked on my computer. I read it once or twice, I think.

God, I am SO FARKING BORED. It's been way too quiet around here. Not that I want a shit-storm of work to rain down upon me, but this is ridiculous.
