    Why post the entire "blog" from Matt Jameson...https://medium.com/@roguenotary/dis...y-be-running-a-hilariously-inept-1a8fdd0f4c74.

    What are you adding and why are you adding it? It's such a non-sequitur. No one was talking about Matt Jameson or Travis Pangburn and yet you bring all this up as if you were just discussing this article with a friend (someone who knew what you were talking about).

    Instead you turn (create) a thread into your personal blog and then most of what you've posted was just copied from the above linked blog.

    People complain about your long-winded posts but most of it is not even your words and there is no context to the subject in the first place. Surely there is some forum rule against turning a thread into a personal blog?

    There's vintage and then there's just old and tired.

    Either Tiassa has taken a kicking elsewhere on the web and come here to let off steam, or, this blogging style is a result of James R being banned.

    1. I have kippers for tea later.
    2. I like lots of butter on them.
    3. Make up your own footnote here.

    James has most likely got bored and buggered off. Or he's ill or something (hope not).

    This place is gradually fizzling out, after all. Soon it will be tumbleweed, enlivened only by Write4U and river, exchanging nonsense with a comical degree of seriousness, plus the various non-interactive, nutcase blogs from Aspergerexia, nebel and poor Michael Anteski.

    I sometimes wonder if those you mention are just stooges to keep the pot burning, so to speak.

    I got a warning from Bells saying that my access may be limited just from my comments that this place is over moderated with several moderators for every poster. It was "too aggressive", trolling,etc.

    This is the only place I've been where you even know who the moderators are. Here, those who have the biggest "tempers" and who are the least "moderate" are the moderators.

    Those who call you a name, threaten you, or otherwise behave rudely are usually the moderators. It's strange for a place with almost no traffic to "moderate". It's almost as if the only purpose of this forum is as a home for control freak moderators. Moderators provide half the content (if you want to call it that).

    I agree about butter with kippers. Tell me, do you cook them in boiling water, as I do to reduce the salt, or do you grill them?

    I've tried grilling kippers, but they all denied knowing the location of the Holy Grail.

    A bit off topic ,but on another forum we did have an Admin that went rogue and locked out the second Admin and then went awol himself so that the forum went down the proverbial fallopians. (He hasn't been seen over there since)

    No ,I don't think that has happened here.I am sure James is taking a break from the forum.But you always wonder -especially in these times- if everything is OK if there is no warning or inkling.
