So if /talk tells us to piss off back to the QOTW
does that mean we get to return the favor if they're in here? Or should we just be fluffeh and add them to our already swelling Ignore lists?

I vote for being fluffeh
but then I only do confrontation in real life, not on teh interwebs.

Let's hope they just never find out about it
Like when you find a nice alternative drinking hole and adopt it as your own, you pray the Chavs never discover it's there.

I think that considering the age group of qotw is usually older and wiser.
We should just ignore like the responsible adults that we are.

Could this turn into a virtual 'gated community' for oldies, where "No Balls Games" and "Keep off the frigging Grass" or "Turn that bloody music down" signs abound.

Hope so!!!

*sigh* Yeah, I know.
It would just be more satisfying somehow to give them their own clap...

Dammit I'm only 23
Does that mean I'm not allowed to play with the big ones?

We don't mind a bit of piss taking and general ribbing.
But some people can take it too far. It becomes downright rudeness and ignorance and that is the thin edge of the wedge.

*folds arms and scowls*

Edit - it's nothing to do with age Kitty. It's to do with being friendly and generally being a good egg.

Not at all.
Anyone's welcome as long as they can behave. We just tend to be an older group who prefers teh fluffeh over twatbadgery.

youthful is as youthful does.

You stay here with the nice elderly people, lovey. You don't mind the odd farting episode I hope?

I'm only 24 you know
...and look how much I've already failed to achieve.

or was that someone else?

Anyway, anyone is welcome as long as they wipe their feet first.

I'm all for Talk folks on here...
... as long as they've got a decent story to tell. Quite a few of them do.

Having said that, this week has been the low point of b3ta for me. We've had some needless sniping and I must confess that I rose to the bait and took someone to task. I hate confrontation, it's not something I like to do anywhere, lest of all on a site where I post my innermost so to speak.


Doesn't matter a jot about your age, if you post a story that strikes a chord, most of us will click and comment. Have a go, we're a fluffy bunch.

Hey Che!
You're only 24, you should be helping me! I'll get the tea, you can start the sponge baths.

When I say 24, that MAY have been down to dyslexia mixed with fingers slipping on the keyboard.

But, depending on who's going in the spongebath...I may be able to help you there.

An even better trick
is to walk alongside someone as you pass beneath a small tree when it's been raining or snowing recently. You kick the tree and sprint forward so it all falls on the other person.

It works best with fresh snow. In forestry school we referred to them as "idiot makers".

(as opposed to the widow maker.)

wicca'd witch posted a really rude reply to the lovely madam marlboro, saying something like:

"this is /talk. this is what we do. those who can take it become one of us. those who can't, can fuck off".

only "she" didn't even put it that well. most of them are really nice, it's just the odd little clique that thinks they are great.

oh dear. oh dear. oh dear.

It surprised me a little!
Although perhaps I should be impressed that my mere one-sentence musing has prompted such an onslaught of ranting and raving. It's a shame that not one answer raised a smile, they're rather an unfunny bunch.

For Family Guy fan(atic)s: It reminds me of that little sketch in Family Guy where Brian refers to the role of a white man in any Spike Lee movie.

I think
it's a matter of age, really- the more sedate QOTW tends to attract older posters and people who like literate answers and exchanges of ideas. /talk is a gossip board that was an offshoot of the main board to keep the chatter in there to a minimum. It attracts the kids who like to show how funny and tough they are with their quick insults, which makes it like hanging with a mob of 15-year-olds.

I'll stay out of there, thanks. I'm a bit past that phase of life.
