    @JohnInCarolina - you sure do learn a lot of "urban dictionary" terms when you visit CA and likely from your students as well.  Enjoy the remainder of the weekend!

    Both the original and current forums constitute “the forum” in BGE parlance. 

    This is common knowledge

    But is that the parlance of our times?

    Nola and John scared away stike, who scared away rubmyrock, who scared away Tweeve ®, who scared away justincaseyfelldown, who scared away wess, who scared away drBBQ, who scared away zippy, who scared away littleSteven, who started the forum originally, in an AOL chat room

    everyone that’s left from the old days are basically bottom feeders, or selling something

    problem is also that John and Nola run about twenty accounts, so the trolling is basically done by two people, and the food photos are one guy logging in under different names (fishlessman, i think, based on the forks in his photos and that they don’t appear on the weekends while he is away “fishing”)


    Stike was no loss. He was just so over-the-top obsessed with his rotting meat. Plus, I heard he was similarly into disintegrating books. A strange man, by all accounts.

    Stike had to leave because when you are that handsome and popular, the plebes come out of the woodwork trying to tear you down

    was sad to see. 

    All he ever did was give give give, and people took advantage of his generosity and saintliness

    I remember Stike. I always thought he was a douchebag. 

    So John and Nola ruin the forum and mask their agenda within their generic threads…got it

    No struggle at all.

    I am not exactly interested in keeping track of whether or not you made an “opening statement”. We are supposed to GAF?

    stike may have been a douche, sure. But you are pretty late to the game. 

    Like the guy no one remembers showing up to the high school reunion wanting to talk about the good old days. 



    EDIT: in my opening statement twenty years ago I said stike was a douche first

    Rite then, so that would put you in the "no difference between sh!te and shinola" camp.  Understand.

    That’s… a very long time to lurk.

    There does seem to be a lot less new threads than there use to be.

    I jump on here looking for recipes or new cook ideas, I just Do not seem to find them like I once did.


    Or could just be me, looking in the wrong places.

    I think some folks priorities may have changed dealing with pandemic, and the fascist right wing attack on democracy.

    Likely caused a re-shuffling of priorities. 

    Thinking the good news today on the vaccine, and the imprisonment of the leader from the fascist right wing group, might open the doors more.

    Then again, maybe not.
