Yeah. I mean there are a few regulars who don't post as much, but its harder to keep track of them because a lot of us float in and out sporadically depending on what's going on in our lives.

All of the dramatic rage quit flounces have been done by people exclusively on the forums to complain about the new direction, as far as I recall.

So, I used to work retail and one day I had this customer who wouldn't believe that a DL2015 watch battery was the same as a CR2015 (the former is simply Duracell brand). He argued with me about it, I told him I couldn't help him because that was the only battery of that type that we carried. He demanded to talk to my boss, who told him the same thing. He got pissed because he wasn't hearing what he wanted to hear and said if we didn't help him he was never coming back. My boss said, "Some customers are worth losing."

I expect you all teared up a little at my stellar storytelling, but I want you to know we all made it through that okay. Except the angry guy, he left with his watch still dead.

I laughed. I cried. I checked my watch battery.

Well, there's at least one who un-lurked just because she -liked- that trajectory and wanted to talk about what the comic was talking about, because she could relate to it an appreciated seeing feminist protagonists rather than just punchlines -somewhere- on the internet.

Again.

I wonder how often this happens? Is this what it feels like to be a part of the 'in' crowd in high school?


what's even funnier is that the administrator on that forum shut him down with a "no forum wars here". it was the last of the entire 3 comments the guy got.

Yup! I do have AdBlock disabled though. Maybe that has something to do with it?


dunno - i didn't think i had changed my settings, but i can't see mine, now. well, hopefully it is a temporary thing and will reappear, because i have no clue where i put the original image. i would have to go through all the angst of choosing a new av.

OH MY GOD, that's fantastic. We haven't participated in a forum war for YEARRRRS.

I like to think it's because we just inspire -that much- fear.
