You know, it has been an interesting few weeks for online bullshitters like myself.
Sb.com was a home from home at work, where the rivalries, but mainly the friendships could be enjoyed and engaged in (when time zones allowed; you seppos get up so late in the day don'tcha!?)
and then it went poof. no bad thing, as it allowed me to break from the norm and actually do what i am paid to!
in any event, a trouble making hippie made me aware of this place and immediately i joined this new collective. whilst not as sparkly as the place of old, i never the less appreciated that it provided the bare necessities and actually worked
time passed, banter occurred. disagreements were aired, advice offered and new friendships made with old ones re-established. and then...dun-dun-duuuuuunnnnn
... sb.com came back on line.
people developed many philosophical rationalities to justify why, how and when they would react. some felt spite to the site that had dumped a month of their online life but gratitude to their recently acquired hosts. others felt guilt as if caught in the midst of an extra-marital trist and ran back apologetically!
utter bolox of course. the admins and hosts of this fine place will take it or leave it when it comes to new members and old (what choice do they have?)....
and sb.com, whilst catestrophic cannot be accused of negligence or incompetence as shit invariably happens.
and so to presume some form of emotional debit or credit to either place is silly and romantic, but i will say this.....
when i log on in the morning, the very first site in my favourite
list that i now click on, is the one directing me to here.
that has to mean something no? afterall, it never used to be that way!
so congrats sbf and thanx! i am sure your numbers will continue to grow (even if the new fekkers fail to mention me as being a 'referer'!)
and so now i find myself having to contribute to a whole new age of trying to politicise hippie / street kid / stoner sideways sliders...... and i glad for it.
