What makes you visit/post on the OT Forum

To All,

Having had a hectic weekend laden by real-world responsibilities that prevented me from spending 'quality' time on the OT Forum, as well as taking a glimpse of 'carpet bombing' posts by some members over the weekend, I was prompted to think why I came to the OT in the first place and why I keep coming back.

I could easily have stated that OT Forum isn't as good as it used to be and gripe about it as if I am an old-timer. However, I do care about the forum more than that and want to approach this subject in a constructive manner (otherwise, the thread risks turning into yet another infamous "You People Suck" thread from W126 Forum).

To that end, I am conducting another poll - multiple votes are allowed owing to the nature of this poll - check all that apply, but please no ballot stuffing.

Also, if you feel inclined, provide your thoughts about how can the quality of OT Forum can be brought up and/or share with us why you ended up here.

Sincerely,

Naomilla2.0

RE: What makes you visit/post on the OT Forum

Since I raised the question, I shall answer first:

I have no intensions of changing anything here on the OT Forum to make it great - I would certainly not advocate for kicking anyone out. I actually enjoy its ups and downs and spontaneity, it's like taking part in one big continuous jam session - jump in and join the groove and if it gets stale, just pull out. It used to be a sleepy place until all the refugees took over and intensified it as the 2004 Election came to a close. After the election, it became more of a free-for-all place (sort of The First Golden Age) and now, it is busy as ever thanks to enthusiastic rookies and virgins (as they always are). I just go with the flow, and once in a while try to step back and think... nevermind, all I see at this moment is just TV static snowflake ...as I weave in and out of its threads.

*****

My foray into OT forum coincided with Mr. Tikket's untimely death last summer (may he RIP) [:(]. Upon his sad departure, I realized that my participation in W126 forum had largely to do with the anticipation of what tall tale has he to tell and who might he instigate next. Quite simply, with Mr.T gone, W126 Forum was not the same anymore. It was then that I discovered the OT Forum. I have posted what I considered to be funny materials on the W126 Forum before, but was typically met with tepid or no response (fucking serious-minded dweebs [;)]). However, in the OT, such posts were in abundance and greatly appreciated. There were serious political topics worth mulling over, but at my brain-atrophied state and waning attention span, I'd stay on the lighter side of things. Then there was the redhead everyone was after, from virgins to erectile-challenged to even the queers and poofs... don't need to elaborate too much on that. So my choices are 2,5,6 and 8.

RE: What makes you visit/post on the OT Forum

I come here because it's always open.
I don't have to check a silly schedule, it's here 24/7.
Plus, the fish is not bad, and I can occasionally get a good guinea pig recipe.
The only gripe I have is that the clint is only superficially accomodating.
Floyd likes it here, also. He calls it "nice" if he speaks at all........
He specifically declines to ride in a "Denali", and in fact spilled his tang at the mere suggestion.
I hope this helps.

But it's special, man. It's a "smiley Denali".
Sheesh!
