Kind of a curmudgeon aren't you? I doubt if you will fit in here, too many nice people.
I was a BBer and I remember woolley. I know exactly who came here from BB unless they changed their name and didn't say so. I take a person for what he/she calls himself unless I'm told something different. I don't go looking for socks or worry about what people have called themselves in the past. Thanks for telling me you were woolley. I was Jen on BB as well as here.
What I was saying is that although many of us came here from BB, we have moved on and only one poster that I am aware of still brings up fights that were waged on BB. Mention of BB is one thing............ still trying to fight the old wars is quite another and it's become boring.
What I remember from BB is that we fought all day and played all night. Nobody hated anybody unless there was a personal thing that needed to be fixed. Lefty and Righty basically got along.
Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to be the case anymore. I can get along with just about anyone unless they disrespect my family or lie about me. I enjoy a good insult. But Lefty here makes up lies about things I have or haven't said and I resent those lies.
I don't like personal hatefulness.
That said, come on back.
There are lots of nice folks here ....
Why are you here?
Just to troll, right?
very few of us held grudges, hell I am friends with JD and SB, I even became FB friends with some others. I can't even remember what we fought about anymore, too many crazy posts to remember anyway. I did kind of leave BB for BOTF at the end, same nastiness without the humor though, guess I like punishment.
I always try to keep the humor in an argument if it's at all possible.
Funny you should ask. I go back to at least 2003 with many of the posters here, some I am personal friends with either having met them or correspond once in a while on Facebook or via email. I kind of stopped hanging around here about a year ago. Since most of us basically blew our intellectual wads on Slate a long time ago, there is nothing new for any of us here anymore. Some hang around likely because it kind of grew into a family of sorts. Most of us likely do not want to admit how much time we waste doing this stuff but after years of it, it gets to be a habit. I posted here to give everyone a big Hello and hopefully a couple laughs. The real question is why are you here? I noticed you joined recently and decided to jump on my thread to call me a troll. That's not very nice is it?
I called you a troll only after you trolled my thread with no response to the actual topic.
No ... it was not very nice but, it was very appropriate.
I merely summed it up for you and the others having listened to that video earlier this week. Say something once, why say it again? Prager makes a living separating us from each other, he spends a great deal of time trying to prove that anyone left of him is either a communist, a socialist, a Marxist or some combination of all three. Very boring stuff...I have no desire to explain it further since I already commented on it when you posted this thing on another site under the nic John T Ford.
You obviously don't have a clue who Prager is or the reality of what people on the far Left are.
But, considering the troll comments you made, being a low/no information types doesn't surprise any of us.
What name were you posting under at that other site?
Sir, you are hijacking my thread which was meant to be a happy one, now you made it so ugly. I have no desire to engage with you any further so if you would be so kind as to find someone else to pester, I would be very grateful.
Snowflake down .... Safe Space Alert.
When we first came here, yes I know your don't remember me ( madam and or white light who mainly posted in faith based, just occasionally in BB) it was like BB everywhere - that was the problem, BB was in every board from religion to gardening, it was uncontained. Then mods and a prison cell were introduced, 'the heavy hand' took over and many old Slat-ers walked or were pushed away - it is a shame but yup, you are right, there is also nothing new to say. Just family debate -
Slate used to have a labyrinth of boards joined to it ( intended for the discussion of this or that article but which grew into something else ) it was like the wild west, it was wonderful - no holds barred and Ballot Box was the wildest of them all. When Slate closed down and supposedly deleted the years and years and years of craziness many of us came here - the remnants of BB are here - Wholly was a BBer and is just touching base in this thread.
It was still pretty wild when we first emigrated - that wildness is still under the surface but has been, in the main, banned, sadly - perhaps PJ just wasn't big enough. The poor owners of the site, when Slate first descended, were totally ill equipped to cope - and handled it, in the end, with the usual old stick - the moderator. They even had a prison at one time called ............ Oh I forget what it was called but there are still lifers in it somewhere down in the ether dungeons.
This site is family - an old family from a place like no other, on line. PH holds some now and others just evaperated - this is all that is left. Sadly not enough, like Wholly, still pop in as we all did in and out of the old Slate boards.
Thanks for informing me.

Drop back in and post about that good stuff from time to time. You can drop a little politics in to...or not. There are other sub-forums here besides politics.
