Title: Ladies....Are We Interested In Resurrecting The Womens Section???
Post by: BikiniSlut on February 24, 2014, 02:08:16 AM
Okay Ladies.......

Do we have a genuine interest in resurrecting the womens section?

Since I've been posting here (2011) we have the most active females I have seen.

bikinislut
Lobstah
TEH Boob
24 kt
Booty
EastCoastChick
Bertha Butt
Princess L
Mrs Muscles
38-26-40

That's ten ladies that currently post. The most in awhile. And all these posters are solid as far as I can tell.....and thick skinned enough to be here.

With the ultimate downfall of Siouxcountry ladies have no place to go. It's a shit board with a shit leader and shit moderators. I will eventually start a topic about the downfall of Siouxcountry.

I sure don't want this section to be like any other female area/board........to be a Getbigger you have to be a TOUGH FUCKING BITCH that can take nasty, uncalled for insults. Most women can't. They take shit personally. But I believe we could get enough females with tough skins to make this section vibrant.

Numbers really isn't relevant....it's quantity.

Of course it has to be a bit more moderated than the rest of the board as we don't want it to get "stupid".

I think male participation would be fine....and input as well. However we can't have them go all gossip and opinion on us......not a big deal......a mod can control that.

I'd also like to point out that we have newbies (Mrs Muscles) to actual IFBB pros (Lobstah).

I'm basically just looking for input really. I personally don't even think we need 3 sections for ladies....just one rocking all questions go section.

I want your input. Let me know what you think.

Agreed, some men have valuable input. E.g. I am an expert tampon buyer.  And I have coached a woman or two. Many men have. In fact I bet there are dozens of men who have trained women professionally for every one woman who has trained another woman.

The problem here now is the bizarre enforcement of the rules. Technically I'm not even allowed to post this (didn't request permission to post!). But I'm almost sure it will stand, as it is positive and doesn't step on any toes. Then again if I post something that isn't rabidly feminine (or sucking up to feminine mores in general) then the post gets deleted 'because I didn't ask permission to post'. That's bullshit: a rule exists or it doesn't. And if it exists it should be enforced consistently, without personal prejudice.

I think men are fine with moderation. There are many subfora here that are all knowledge, no flaming. The AAS board is just one great example: some of the biggest users, but no roid rage. The nutrition section is also fine.


In my opinion you need responsible moderators, who moderate based ONLY on rules, not personal preference. Factual disagreement or clearly labelled personal opinions should be allowed, even from men. Not allowing normal discussion has turned this section into the perfect stereotype of what men think of women: 'women talk, men are supposed to sit back and shut up'. Well, it's clear how well that strategy is working...

Honestly Phreak your input is welcome.

The rules for this section need to be changed.

There is no need to "baby" the ladies of Getbig any longer. The wimps are at Siouxcountry and the ladies with real vaginas are here. We don't need nor want to be pampered. We just want to have some great discussion here.

Some honest but civil discussion would be a great thing for this section.

CIVIL is key, but I don't think there's a shot in hell that it will happen.
I enjoy getbig more than I ever enjoyed Siouxcountry, but I also accept that I can never be as honest about some things here as I could be there because everything turns into a chance to "own" someone or a chance to sexualize here. The opposite is true as well. There are things I can say here without and fallout, like about my diet and training, that would be regarded with disdain there because for some reason Jason thinks he needs to save adult women from their own decisions.
I don't know, there really isn't an "Eden" as far as the internet goes...

The rules are in place for good reason although somewhat relaxed in recent years, they will remain for now.  The women who were most active in years past are sadly gone due to incessant harassment from those unnamed  (CQ, RIP, BEAST, Laura, newmom, W8 etc. and OS (R.I.P.  :'()   Of course pampering isn't necessary ~ never was.  Personally, I'm not familiar with SC, but I can just imagine what you speak of  ;) , but also please refrain from "bashing" another site.  I'm sure Ron runs into some of these folks in his travels.

The G&O has always been owning central  ::) but we've done our best to keep it off the women's board.   There shouldn't be any issues with your honesty here.

That site is agenda driven. It aims to bring down certain teams/coaches while praising others.....Layne Norton, Scott Abel, etc.

Girls get ripped apart for doing more than 30 minutes cardio each day and for eating under 1500 calories.

It's gotten horrible and is a joke.

In an attempt to resurrect it Crystol and Jason are playing "Nice we love everyone equally blah blah blah we are a safe place for women blah blah blah". It's pathetic.

The way the treat girls is often worse than G&O.

Actually, he doesn't. Jason, who runs SC, is well known for never attending ANY shows EVER. Not ONE show.

Yet he thinks he knows everything about the sport and he feels he's fully qualified to judge the physiques on stage.

Hopefully some of the "okay" ladies will swing on by these parts once his forum is gone.

It's dying.....he starts 98% of the threads and lately they are "mushy" memory threads or threads about how "wonderful and humble" of a guy he is. Desperate for posts and he's tugging at his members heart strings.

Regardless maybe we can get this forum going again. Problem is nobody even views this forum.

I actually have no problem participating in the rest of the board....but another member mentioned getting this section going. So we'll see.

Indeed, you need a tough skin on Get Big, but I like it. I can relate more to men than to most women.  ;)

I would appreciate male input, as long it is fair and constructive. Flaming, trolling and owning is for G&O.


Title: Re: Ladies....Are We Interested In Resurrecting The Womens Section???
Post by: Bertha Butt on February 26, 2014, 05:04:14 AM
The rules sometimes seem a bit abitrary. A man has to ask permission to post; a woman can post automatically. No matter if the woman is real/fake or constructive/trolling. Yes, I understand any trolling post can and will be removed. But the fact remains that a woman needs no permission to post here, just because she is female. I am not in favour of positive discrimination on any ground, let alone on gender.

I also think that having to ask permission to post first, stops men from adding interesting input to any discussion here. If I were a man, I would not bother to ask permission and either post (as phreak does) or just don't post at all and keeping the interesting info to myself. ;)

As written in the description of what Ron wanted this board to be when he first created it:
 
"Some male members of Getbig have been known to purposely offend women on this site which has resulted in very few women posting here and has discouraged others from joining.

In an effort to make current female members of Getbig feel comfortable and to encourage other females to register and participate, males must be approved by the moderators in order to be able to post on this particular board."
 
When this particular board was first started, Ron wanted NO males posting here.  Initially, we had to delete them all.  After talking to him about it, he agreed that if they could participate without causing problems they should be allowed to post here.  That is where the "agreement to the rules" element came from.
 
This board was very busy and fun for years.  Even people that had feuds on the other boards would normally be civil to one another here.  And if they weren't, they would be edited or deleted (and warned if necessary).  This went both ways; for males and for females.
 
When threats and outings became more of the norm, less people post on the whole of getbig and of course this affects this board as well.  I'm not going to post details here regarding the threats and who they came from, but it is important to know that if you reveal information about yourself, and then someone gets butthurt by you or decides they don't like you, they may "internet stalk" you and will possibly find out your information.  What they do with it then depends on that person.
 
For now the rules will remain unless Ron wants them gone.  It shouldn't be that painful to agree to be civil to each other on here.  Even if females are uncivil, they will be edited/deleted/warned.  One female has been (temporarily) banned from this board 3 times.  The only other person banned was a male for a temporary period of time.
 
If these guidelines are too harsh for you and you want to make your own board, but stay in the female section, start posting on the Fitness/Figure area.

These are the rules.  Seriously, it's not that difficult.


Some male members of Getbig have been known to purposely offend women on this site which has resulted in very few women posting here and has discouraged others from joining.

In an effort to make current female members of getbig feel comfortable and to encourage other females to register and participate, males must be approved by the moderators in order to be able to post on this particular board.


1. Show common courtesy at all times. Know the difference between a difference of opinion and a personal attack. Don't engage in insults. Do remember that we have members from a variety of nations, races and religious beliefs.
2. Do not post solicitations or advertisements without permission.
3. Do not post threats or any material that is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, or invasive of a person's privacy.
4. This forum is for support, empowerment, sharing opinions and entertainment. Getbig.com is not a professional advice forum, and no one should use it as such. For medical problems, consult a medical professional.
5. Moderators may move posts as deemed necessary and at their discretion.
6. Do not register or post under multiple user names or pretend to be female when you are not.  If you are confused, please seek professional help and/or your doctor's advice.
7. Report objectionable posts to the moderators rather than responding in kind.
8. The moderators reserve the right to edit or delete posts that violate forum rules. Spamming will not be tolerated.
9. By registering to use the forum, you agree to abide by all terms and conditions, and give the board administration staff permission to contact you at the e-mail address listed in your profile.  
10. Members who violate forum rules will first receive a warning, and upon their second violation will be either temporary or permanently banned from this board.


If you agree to conduct yourself according to the above guidelines, please PM either STella (Butterbean) or PL (Princess L) or agree on this board to follow the rules for "approved male poster status."  :D  When you have been approved, you will see your name on the "Approved Male Posters" thread.

Meanwhile, if you are female, welcome.  You are already approved.  Our intention is a safe place for you to post freely on getbig without fear of attack or harrassment.  We request that you abide by the same guidelines that we ask of the men that must be approved to ensure a pleasant environment  :)

Post by: BikiniSlut on February 26, 2014, 04:44:50 PM
Absolutely NO ONE actually reads the rules. It doesn't matter if they should....they don't.

What's worse is who would expect such a rule from a forum like Getbig. The most liberal discussion forum on the internet practically. 

There is no other place on the internet where men have to ask to join in the female discussion. This is something that is not obvious.

Not sure why Ron wanted that but no one else wants it. Nor does anybody else listen to it.

I think it's time for a change and I suppose I'll go into getbig complaints and ask Ron to make a change so we can get more discussion in here from males and females alike.

If things get rank we can always change the rules once more.

Oh fuck off. Don't resort to insults just because you don't like the fact that not everyone agrees with you and Ron.

I can see you are not open to change.

Why would we want to go back and bump old threads. New ladies, new discussions, new training and diet methods, etc.

It seems to me Rons original vision just isn't flying since this section is so dead. The women want a bit of "oomph" for lack of a better term.

We can have some sass without the type of bullshit that goes on and G&O.

It would be a new concept....which is why this discussion came to light.

If nothing is going to change nobody is going to want to post here.

The girls here are tougher than the ones before.

Smarter too. I think everybody is smart enough to realize that if you post on Getbig you are at risk for having personal information hunted down. Some of just don't care. Some do and guard it with their life.

It's a new flock of ladies that seem to hold their own in Gossip and Opinions.....so they would do just fine in a woman only section. We don't want another love fest like SuxCountry or snorefest like RX Women.

Smarter too. I think everybody is smart enough to realize that if you post on Getbig you are at risk for having personal information hunted down. Some of just don't care. Some do and guard it with their life.

It's a new flock of ladies that seem to hold their own in Gossip and Opinions.....so they would do just fine in a woman only section. We don't want another love fest like SuxCountry or snorefest like RX Women.
sorry BS,  you actually have no idea what is going on here. I was responding to ECC about a conversation that you were neither aware of nor involved in.  she and I were offended by specific, current members of getbig, but when I found out that one in particular was  gnome-height, I stopped taking his attacks seriously.
 You know, it's like imagine if you heard that a lynch mob was coming to your house, but when they got there, they were all as tall as a pack of housecats. Sure, you're still mad that these people came to lynch you, but instead of flipping your shit, you're just going to piss on the lot of them and go back in the house.  right?

As written in the description of what Ron wanted this board to be when he first created it:
 
"Some male members of Getbig have been known to purposely offend women on this site which has resulted in very few women posting here and has discouraged others from joining.

In an effort to make current female members of Getbig feel comfortable and to encourage other females to register and participate, males must be approved by the moderators in order to be able to post on this particular board."
 
When this particular board was first started, Ron wanted NO males posting here.  Initially, we had to delete them all.  After talking to him about it, he agreed that if they could participate without causing problems they should be allowed to post here.  That is where the "agreement to the rules" element came from.

This board was very busy and fun for years.  Even people that had feuds on the other boards would normally be civil to one another here.  And if they weren't, they would be edited or deleted (and warned if necessary).  This went both ways; for males and for females.

Very noble to have a safe place for women!
Keeping all men out is indeed not an option. Approving some males is better, but not the best solution. It is also unclear on what grounds a male would be approved or not (or maybe I did not read the rules carefully enough?).
Maybe a moderator should not look at who posted but what he or she posted and apply rules for editing or removing the post on that, instead of deleting all post from unapproved males indifferent of their content. Yes, that would call for heavy moderating.

More men posting here seriously could make a discussion more lively and therefore attract more women to join.

Quote

When threats and outings became more of the norm, less people post on the whole of getbig and of course this affects this board as well.  I'm not going to post details here regarding the threats and who they came from, but it is important to know that if you reveal information about yourself, and then someone gets butthurt by you or decides they don't like you, they may "internet stalk" you and will possibly find out your information.  What they do with it then depends on that person.

Restricting a man from posting here will not restrict him from reading here and post ownings on a different part of GB!

Quote
For now the rules will remain unless Ron wants them gone.  It shouldn't be that painful to agree to be civil to each other on here.
If these guidelines are too harsh for you and you want to make your own board, but stay in the female section, start posting on the Fitness/Figure area.[/color]
OK, but...
You could take this point up on your next consultation. And if GB is a democracy, you could do a survey amongst female GB'ers to see what they want.

I hardly visit the other womens boards. Theres not much discussion there, seems to me only a collage of pictures. Not very inviting.

I respectfully disagree...and not out of chauvinistic spite - there is some REAL TRASH on this board. 

There are two members who took great joy in posting personal/private info of some of the female members here. Just ask Runningmom and W8M8.

The antagonistic bullshit has pacified a bit in recent years, but if someone offered me "protection," I'd take it!
I don't know how servere it got. I read along with my hubby, but reading along and partaking are not the same. You don't get that 'feeling' for the board and what's going on.

As it is now, I would say kick out the trash (and kick hard!) and don't build a guilden cage for women.

There's pages and pages of good old stuff.  Happy reading & feel free to resurrect.

Why would we want to go back and bump old threads. New ladies, new discussions, new training and diet methods, etc.

Would be like asking your grandma for advice. Not bad, but perhaps not really up to date.  ;D

If GB wants more females actively participating it needs a lively discussion. Bumping old dusty threats is not a way to invite people to join that discussion.

I was a moderator on a different (medical) forum a few years back. We deleted all topics of which the newest post was older than X months. Yes, some questions were asked frequently, but soon other members than the moderators started to answer these. The board was lively and fresh, and visitors got the latest info, specific to their needs.

What are you talking about? My response had nothing to do with anything that occurred with you and ECC. It wasn't directed toward a specific incident at all.

It was a generalization about what occurs with everybody on the board.

W8M8 was no push-over, and could dish it as well as anyone, yet she was targeted repeatedly and eventually run off.

Ron had only great intentions in starting this board in effort to attract more female members. If you honestly feel a change may benefit today's climate, I encourage you to present your case to him. Ron is honestly interested in generating more activity to the site - particularly females. If he agrees, I am certain he will be happy to oblige.

You quoted me, so I assumed that meant you were directly responding to what I said. I was informing you that you couldn't possibly respond to what I'd said, since you had no idea what it referred to. You're right though - I shouldn't have assumed a quote meant it was a direct response.

I would rather not publicly discuss what happened actually, because it involves race relations and getbig - a futile matter, at best. People on getbig are NOTORIOUSLY racist as fuck, so I generally save my bitching for other black people.

Well, except for the tranny bit. I'm still the sex and gender I was assigned at birth. But black, liberal, female, and non-hetero...check, check, check, check.

Initially it frustrated me, and it does take a very self confident woman to not let this stuff break you down, but there's no use arguing with someone whose beliefs were inherited and not developed on their own accord.

Yeppers 24kt, as do I.  The whole point of the Girly Board (instigated by STella/ButterBean and me a few years ago was to have no men...


Bikini Slut, you're going to have to change your name,  no woman would call herself that.  Nor are you a mod on this our Girly Board.  Why have you all of a sudden decided a Girly Board is a good idea?

It never worked as soon as they let men on.  It should've been Women only.  Men have all the other boards, there should've been one for just Girls.




You cite ten female users and of those, >>>I reckon 4 or 6 are men trolling.


And waaaaaaaa why am I not mentioned, I asked for this Girly Board directly at Ron and he did it for me.  But it got wrecked when some woman from Florida was the mod and she gave her password to Michael Arvilla?

No seriously, the best attempt at a Female Board would be to have only females.  Let the men post elsewhere and allow them to only look but not touch our Girly place?  Really, it'd work

Go troll in Gossip and Opinions....this is a serious discussion.

I don't care if you don't like my Getbig handle btw.  ::)

My point is that most women might prefer not to 'troll' as you call it, Slut, on the other manly boards.



And when they had 'close moderation" Laura Lee gave her password to her bloke and havoc ensued, our Girly Board wasn't safe.  

>>>So if you do really have a real femaie wanting to post on GetBig, it would make sense that she start on our safe Girl Place and post here, then peruse the other boards if she feels the need.  But as you say, it'd be best if our Girly Board became busier and safer.  It should be the only place to be for real Girls.





Oh Darling?  I'll just call you Bikini from now on, that's a much nicer name

No, no, friend - the G&O is for anyone who wants to venture there; male or female. My point is that it's not everyone's cup of tea, and there should be places reserved for mature discussion.

It was so obvious, ...but the men didn't get it. A few realized they didn't get it, and bowed out deciding to leave us our little piece of GetBig in peace.

Then, one of the mods and her boyfriend turned it into their own little playground.

The few men left who knew how to play nicely with the girls in the sandbox got tired of what many referred to as "The Mike & Laura Show"  a second mod was simply MIA,  another was bored out of her mind and losing brain cells by the minute having to read some of the banality here, ...afterall, there is just only so much makeup & lipstick topics a working brain can endure.

A few female posters here even started taking their feuds from other boards over here and the moderation tended to be a little cliquish.

There have been a few good threads that were extremely informative and very helpful that the men watched, but didn't participate in... like the infamous Tampon thread, but most of the original and most consistent posters male & female who preferred this board, have left GetBig sick of the crap they have to wade through.

I've been a member of GB for a long time and back in the day this site was really cool and the majority were mature cool people. I like to post on the ladies board for advice to be honest. I have 4 daughters and sometimes I need an honest answer or a womans perspective on things / my actions. (sometime we men can be assholes and not see it clearly)

Types of GOOD advice I've gotten here over the years - dating, husband, step parent, parent of teenager girls, anniversary gift suggestions, argument settlement... In all honesty I respect most of the ladies here, especially the old school - Princess, Laura, Stella, 24kt and even Linda.   All have proven wise and have saved my ass or humbled me at one time or another.

Perhaps it's not the ideal solution, but it's something.  It gives the guys (who aren't yet approved) a moment of pause to remember this is a place where some dignity and respect is required.  Nothing more is expected and nothing less is accepted.  Anyone who is willing to demonstrate a reasonable level of respect at all times, shouldn’t have an issue with agreeing to the rules of engagement.   Not agreeing and then posting IS disrespectful to the women of the board and those men who have.

I really have no idea how or when I became a mod here.   Then again I have the memory of a goldfish (oh look!  A castle)  I never requested it.  There were plenty of other women who actively modded the board and I basically stayed out of it.

There’s a whole plethora of reasons IMO.  Many women have come and gone, but the original active  “core” being gone has a lot to do with what has gone on off-line.  Without going into specific details, the real life interference had significant impact.  It’s not a matter of “ban them”.  Ban who?  Attacks and real-life stalking come from virtually unknown sources and those attacks often times have NOTHING to do with what has been revealed online.

Why wouldn't your opinion be worth something? Even though you don't have ovaries, and went missing for a few years, I think that YOU, along with Miggy and a few select others have been valuable and well loved contributors to this board. I'm sure all the girls here would gladly grant you the upgraded status and award you as an "honorary woman". Sorry Miggy, this award doesn't come with a vagina at your disposal 24/7, but it can prevent automatic eye-ball rolling the moment you open your mouth. lol.

I really have no idea how or when I became a mod here.   Then again I have the memory of a goldfish (oh look!  A castle)  I never requested it.  There were plenty of other women who actively modded the board and I basically stayed out of it.

There’s a whole plethora of reasons IMO.  Many women have come and gone, but the original active  “core” being gone has a lot to do with what has gone on off-line.  Without going into specific details, the real life interference had significant impact.  It’s not a matter of “ban them”.  Ban who?  Attacks and real-life stalking come from virtually unknown sources and those attacks often times have NOTHING to do with what has been revealed online.


My deepest sympathies

 ;D

I don't remember when you became a mod here either. I know it was after Dina went MIA. Infact, I don't even remember Dina ever posting here. It was well after DeeDee left to maintain her sanity, and the Mike & Laura show came to an end. I know i was away from this site for most of 2011. I think Ron made you a mod because of the amazing job you've done modding other boards.

Still got my hair...but greys have started in over the last year. I can actually see them without searching now. My girls used to get $1 for everyone they found and pulled...now I fear I will either go broke or bald (or both) if we continue that chore.

You are hilarious!  ;D

We'll give it a try??!  ROTFLOL!
You say that as if it is YOUR decision to make.  ???
People don't check this section because they don't want to.
I was here for 10 years before I even ventured to post on G&O
If someone wants to post here, they know how to do it.
If you want to see the board come alive, post something of interest to the readers they would respond to.

Oh brother.  ::)

I really don't care about the past. I actually laughed at the Mike and Laura story. Don't know why she did that but whatever.

I brought this up to see if more women would be interested. Apparently not because everybody is dwelling on the past.

No matter to me. We will see if more women start posting or not. At least it's now been brought to attention.

Haha...I'm curious too.  :D

I recall their names being mentioned in threads but I don't know this "story". If I recall she was a competitor and looked really very good. Him as well.

And here I just claimed I didn't care about the past......haha. Silly Dot.  :D

I'll relay what was seen as the Mike & Laura 'Show', As for the Mike & Laura 'story', that's none of my business,
so I won't be publicly discussing that, ...regardless of what I may know. Suffice to say, their story ended.

Basically the Mike & Laura Show was them making the board all about them.
Signing into the board to tell each other how much they loved each other etc.,
...even if they were sitting in the same room. I liked them both, but sometimes most times, it was cloying

You could probably find an old thread with Mike Arvilla on it, in fact I think he still posts on the Men's section.  His name comes up in red at the bottom when he's online, he's still a GetBig regular or was till quite recently.  He may have started a trolling gimmick account though, all of them do.  He used to come in and out of our Girly Board and tell me to fuck off and die.  Laura Lee wasn't very well, so I hope she's okay, but I very much doubt it because Arvilla is a pig.  Google them.  She was the best but became ill and was very badly done by.  It was carnage.  He had Laura's modding password and was able to alter everyone's posts.  I gave up once or twice.


sTella aka Butterbean was the best Girly Board Mod, but I guess she's gone.  Ron really ought to put in an Appearance and Annoint our Girly Board with his Authenticity but that's unlikely.....


As long as you have 2 or 3,000 horny men allowed to scroll and read and wank and get rude and post on our Girly Board (when they've all those hundreds of other boards on GetBig to bash people on ((and this is one of the funniest most bashing wwwebsites ever)) you've got a problem for women?




Oh by the way?  I'm gone, goodbye, I'm going back to South India for another two months to finish my yoga
Good luck you lot with your women's bits
take care
let me know later if I miss anything or if you miss me

sTella is still here modding. She managed to save my Barbie doll thread from completely going into the gutter.
The other half of the thread is on the Sex board.

Waaaaaaa I'm back home in London because my old Mum is very ill.  And I get home after a day at the hospital and go on the GetBig Forum to see what's up.  I must be mad.


>>>I don't go on the Sex Board or any other board, I just rather liked the Girly Broad Board?

Noone has posted on our Girly Forum since 23 March.  How sad is that?  Your chances of resurrecting it seem slim....

Good luck with it.  Your Women's Section died a sad death it seems.


I was thinking of asking a big question but if noone's there why bother.  If I went on the Gen Tops I'd get bashed big time.



Take care anyways

What's hilarious is that I (although asking for and getting our Girly Board) am ignored.  'Tis funny.  I'll post and people skirt around me and take the piss


On the Gen Tops or G&O I'm just called a c u n t.  





waaaaaaaaaa and you edit me in 2 secs?   nice modding babes


>>> you have a program or a mod which changes chunt to girl?  How clever,  well done....  So they're allowed to call me a c*nt on the bloke board and it remains there but I'm not allowed to type what they said about me on our Girly Board?   Nice going.



Okay so I get drunk and vent on the www.  But really?

That's ten ladies that currently post. The most in awhile. And all these posters are solid as far as I can tell.....and thick skinned enough to be here.




Thick skinned?  The Girly Section is brutal and the rest is bashing horrid mad
xL    

No worries, I've got shoulders the size of a small house and thighs as big as thunder.


I only come on this webshite when I'm in a really really bad mood, it's scary.  I'm not doing the xy or z.  No way.

I've dabbled on Ron's little thread at the very bottom and gotten pms from him.  

I was so very into our Girly Board, it sorta made sense.  But sadly no place is safe.




take care

Just curious but why care about a girly board or censorship if all you want to do is come here when youre drunk and really pissed off? In past post over the years you added valuable information and even a couple funny post now and then and it was funny as hell watching you put idiots in their place but it seems now you just want a place to log onto and be a bitch (forgive the term).

I want to post on the internet and go back at you and correct your grammar.  It's >you are (as in happening) or >your (belonging to)

Shorten you are to you're?





ouch.  I'm upset, sorry, shit happens.  I really should be volunteering at the library, not posting on an illiterate wwwshite.




It'd be so nice if men were banned from here and just women posted, it'd make so much more sense xL
