These aren't really dummy posts so much as some fun things most of us probably agree on from twitter. Heh.

I just like to think of myself as a run-of-the-mill "hater."

When will Art start rambling about mud huts and stealing electricity?

Colleen Alcantara-Galloway?  ???  Aren't there any Jane Smiths on FB?

This could be a job for Bella-Haven. We can attract and wrangle all the three-names with fragrant treats. Butter them up, so to speak ... and then when they wander out into normal threads: blammo!

Well yeah.  But within community standards.

Community standards have changed it looks like to me. I seem to remember people being banned just by being annoying. Am I remembering this wrong?

Alright, which one of you assholes said that?

As far as I know both those pieces of information came from Heather's Bellgab posts.  Someone has been copypasting them around.  But I see some messengers being shot anyway.

standards did change. 

after art quit again, i knew what was about to come.  rather than put my life on hold monitoring the forum for unsavory comments or bringing in additional moderators who would undoubtedly destroy the forum, i decided not to moderate the forum at all (the exception being porn, etc.).  some agree with that decision, some don't.  fine. 

having said all of that, i didn't create the problem and it's not my responsibility to massage the tone of conversation around here.  if i did so, even a little bit, then i'd have to do it completely because anything less would generate complaints about my "capricious and arbitrary" moderation.  simply put, i just don't give a shit anymore.  indifference is liberating.

Don't worry, MV. People who are angry with the current situation aren't true bellgabbers.

heh heh, yeah, i keep seeing references to "true bellgabbers" and what behavior can or should be expected from them.  people seem to forget this is just a script running on a server, not a spiritual quest.

Oh OK, thanks for explaining it. It seemed to me that maybe you welcomed the 4chan shit posters due to increased revenue potential. I'm glad I was wrong. I hope you do eventually care again, I like this website for some reason.

Also I agree with your take on over moderation. It makes sense with your if you're a hammer all you see is nails metaphor.

Ryan Hopkins Nobody forces Art to log on to Bellgab. People are free to express their opinions whether he or anyone else disagrees with it.

Laurie Sullivan MJ, with much respect to you, but ART was the one who stoked the crazy over there up to a fever pitch. ART was a daily/nightly regular there and that group were his minions who would do anything for him- and Heather was their glorified Queen. The Bellgab group were the ones raising cash to get the show uo/running. The Bellgab group were some of the main ones calling radio stations to sell the show to them. Art was their King & they worshipped him. I wasn't a member there, but would "lurk" to see why Art felt they were so important. So, now that they feel they were duped by the King & Queen and are no longer drinking the Kool aid, Art is whining about them? I'm an RN & even with the short time I spent doing Psych nursing, I can see that Art has serious issues. He needs to tend to his family & just shut up. Threatening legal action like a little girl bc they say something he does't like is going against the Constitutional rights he holds so dear.
I so appreciate the hard work you've done, MJ, to keep Art relevant to us. I know you have to stay neutral. But seeing his & Heathers once huge pack of defenders over at Bellgab get fed up is extremely intrresting.
