Locker Room / OT

We have a lot of jokers and it seems that that is not the preferred modality for OT, which is kind of disappointing for a lot of people because, y'know, it builds character to get your balls busted on a daily basis. So here's what I propose. (Again.)

A paid, almost-anything-goes, members-only "locker room" section. Set a subscription price that will cover the extra bandwidth required and leave the jokers to do their thing. Leave it mostly unmoderated with just a few ground rules ("don't do anything illegal" basically), and tighten up the OT section with more enforcement of rules.

I'd be happy to pay $50 a year to enjoy such things and I won't even bitch and moan about not getting a shitty coffee mug like I did when I donated to NPR and got jack shit.

An interesting idea, to be sure, but it has the pontential for disaster.


Following the few rules we have, and not being massive vindictive assholes is much, much easier for everyone.

yes. because the 7 minutes it would take to create a new forum and write a disclaimer that you need to read before you enter for the first time that says everybody in there is a bunch of idiots, as opposed to the hours and hours you and the other moderators spend pulling your hair out OVER THE INTERNET, the 7 minutes is too much to ask

Why don't you guys just send me that $50 and I'll give you tips about relationships and hygiene and stuff and send a few members-only n00ds every month?

Ok, fine.


How does "I don't feel like it" sound.


I want to know where this sense of entitlement comes from. I really do.


Oh, and nobody flatter themselves with the "pulling the hair out for hours and hours"...we talked about of over the course of about oh, I don't know, ONE hour yesterday.

That's the also same group of members that clicked the "I agree to abide by the rules" box when you signed up for the site. You can't do whatever you want on here, just because you feel like it.



But, point made.

Join the club.


Read a thread from even as little a year ago, and notice the difference.

Aren't there other forums out there where you can just post nonsense? not sure why it would need to be done on what is primarily a Saab forum, and even further, why pay for it? This is all rather bizarre to me. Just act as if there is a real human being on the other side of the Internets, and realize that some people can't handle being made fun of, that's that.

Apparently not, if you look around.

Guru - your sig. "Blod" pressure? Intentional misspelling, or just plain cute?

I didn't make it, I stealed it.

I did not notice it was misspelled until you pointed it out. Now it is even funnier.
