    Default One day...

    ....one of the higher ups at Vianet will notice the lack of action over here, and will shut down Soonet. Probably without any warning, or fanfare, in the usual way they do things.

    It's been a good run. I don't even remember how long the board ran before the major revision and restart in 2000, but 18 years, at least, is a very long time in today's Internet world. Older than almost all the social media sites.

    So I just thought I'd say goodbye while the opportunity is still here. Made some good friends, found out the real heart of a few, good and bad, and ticked off a few losers!!

    No regrets.

    They decided to put the fox in charge of the Hen House and that sounded the Final Death Knell.

    But before that many wandered off to twitter where there is no unnecessary Editing by OVERLY ZEALOUS Mods.

    Gee, you'd almost think that such a comment would be edited if the mods were over zealous.

    It seems that perhaps those upset with your being offered a position are going to make it a sticking point yet again.

    Soon as some of the older posters find you have been reinstated traffic ought to pick up so gird thy loins and prepare for incoming.

    The laughs must be far and few between. It would appear that controversy may be the key to keeping this site alive. Now that the posters that created that have been banned, edited and generally silenced, this may be all that remains.

    If some losers idea of controversy mostly consists of insulting people, we don't need him.

    I think the only losers are those that take those insults serious. When internet insults carry that much power over ones life, it's time to step away from the keyboard.

    I would tend to agree with the caveat, both sides need be in place. Those who agitate as well as those who take umbrage. Failing this, there is no drama, no drama, no traffic. The casual conversation, observations and queries of long ago has died with the advent of the bully. The less argumentative have moved on and have never been replaced. Casual conversations end in constant bickering regardless who is at fault it may be.

    I will always take issue with bullies, especially when their true intent is revealed in PM's!!

    I suppose that's one way to look at it.

    But are you OK for me to repeat some of the stuff, and direct it at you??
