View Full Version : My Final Topic on the Star BB (Before it was yanked)...

To the Star BB Admin:

I wanted to personally thank you for your recent actions in deleting these non-relative topics from this perfect example of what a properly run bulletin board should be.

Unlike most, I understand the business aspects of your decision. The idea of giving your clients free choice on what topics they discuss has made this one of the most attractive football BBs in the country, but think how successful it CAN be when you start controlling the topics!

If the masses (your clients) knew what was best for them, they would realize that the interaction between this large community of friends is not what attracts others, nor what keeps this BB (unlike most others) relatively civil. I applaud your decision to step in and force your clients to do what is in their own best interests. Everybody knows that a successful business does not cater to it’s clients, but rather it forces it’s customers to do what the company tells them to.

If only your clientele were smart enough to study history! Then they would know that a free market environment always leads to chaos and repression, whereas the true path to success and prosperity lies with central planning.

So again I applaud you for treating your loyal customers like the dim-witted sheep that they are. I do have one suggestion however, if by some miracle you discover that you’ve made a strategic error with this decision, never admit it. That would be a sign of weakness and no self respecting bureaucracy would ever reverse a decision once made ~ whether the decision was good, or bad.

Luz
Good bye everyone…

Bwana,

I'm not sure. I posted it and then left.

I understand it didn't last very long, but have no idea if very many saw it.

If anyone did, I would be curious to know how many post it received.

Luz
i never got a responce from the bba...

Now why would they yank that post!? Seriously! Read the Terms of Use (http://www.kansascity.com/html/use-agreement.html), then tell me where the violations are. So, sarcasm is no longer allowed on the KCBB? Free thought & right to express one's opinion are no longer tolerated?

Hey, the socialists & Thought Police can have that board!

HC: I'm sure it was yanked because the KC BBA sees Luz as a threat........why, one more person could leave and Denise would be left talking with Roger with Becky tending the board. http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/eek.gif

One thing I've noticed...

Those people don't talk with each other, they talk AT each other.

I saw your topic and was rolling. I think it was yanked before it garnered any response.

The BBA on the "other" board is probably crying her eyes out right now.

Just posted another. Bob Dole is not a very accomplished record keeper and does not have your email address. If you want, please shoot off a note to [email address deleted to protect the idiot].

(I can post it here because I can edit it back out after you read it...)

Sorry About the test, was having problems with my password.

Luz,
Great post. Glad we all ended up here, as I would have missed your great sarcism. Unfortunatly I think it was wasted on the other board, as non would have understood it. http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/smile.gif

08-24-2000, 01:50 PM
Luz,

I thought the advertisers were the old BBs customers/clients. We on the otherhand we're supposed to be dim-witted sheep who would click the ad banners for the BBs clients. Maybe the political threads were getting in the way of advertising "Roger the Plumber".

generally there to ruin all of our fun

LOL... The wife and I have a running joke about the fun meter. It doesn't matter how far away she is, but the second I open a beer, turn on the tube, or sit in front of the PC, her fun meter goes off. She is immediately reminded of the many tasks still on my 'honey do' list that have been there for months.

Luz, loved your post. I didn't see the meltdown on the KCBB when it all happened. It sounds like the BBA's got spooked really bad... I just don't understand why...

Love this new board...

All I know is that women got me banned from paradise and took one of my darn ribs. Now they don't want to do the laundry or dishes.

Hell they don't even want to cook a decent meal. Adam is rolling in his grave.

Thanks Morph.

Kids have been in my room all day crying (again) and calling my home, and dropping by. The whole community is once again shocked.

Yea, I need a distraction.

Wondering how to do Sarcasm with anything but words?

DaKCMan AP
08-24-2000, 11:42 PM
Logical - Not sure where your going with that one. Tone of voice and facial expressions go a long way to showing that you are being sarcastic.

Mosbonian
08-24-2000, 11:46 PM
I understand that, I was being sarcastic in that words must be part of sarcasm. I think what was meant was written words. I guess I kind of emphasized your point, as my written words did not come off as sarcastic.

Did not mean to offend,
Sorry.
