Let me get this straight; you’re saying this guy runs a Web site dedicated to commentary about a message board?
You’re kidding, right? This cannot happen. Nobody could be enough of a loser to ron a commentary board about the toons on a commentary board. Even the worst basement nerd has better things to do. What’s next, an online game in which you manage little geeks who play online games?
Yes, there’s websites where the whole discussion is about how much of a waste of time the SDMB is, and how they’re all amazed that anybody bothers with it any more. I don’t think many of them have realised the irony of their situation.
Yes, there are a couple of other message boards devoted to the discussion of this message board. If you’d like to discuss them, please come on over to the message board I have established for that purpose. That’s where the real action is these days.
I don’t see what’s so strange about discusing a message board else where. I discuss it with my friends and we send each other links to the interesting conversations. In chat, we discuss various threads, posters, etc. If I didn’t have these other places to talk about it, then I probably would have long ago lost interest.
There are some people who post on the other boards who want to make comments on things they see here that they can’t make here because (a) the comments aren’t welcome, (b) the way they want to word the comments is unwelcome, or (c) the posters aren’t welcome.
deep breath I joined way back when as Elenia25 and then proceeded to diligently ignore the SDMB for the next couple of years,. Early 2004 I noticed it again and became an active participant. Joined as Elenia28. Finally in July I paid my subscription under Elenia28. Th[en I became aware of the board culture and asked TubaDiva to kill both usernames and make me Anaamika.
But now we are discussing that they are discussing…
