You know, despite what our absent landlord in Munich would like us to think, it's perfectly possible to be an active member of more than one internet forum at the same time.

Fancy that, eh?

The marvels of the internets...
While I don't disagree, and I like the pub analogy and all (from past posts ya know), I feel a certain loyalty to certain things; I make a concerted effort to give most of my business to my main pub, and all of my business to my one woman* (to form another analogy). I understand that these are modern times and 1950's morality is considered gauche though.

*I think I have posted a few times on the coagulated milk forum but then so has Mrs. Mud so it's all good.

That's all very well, until you discover that the landlord is a libellous prick and one of the barmen is keeping track of how many times you've nipped out for a slash.

Who can blame us for preferring the Feathers down the road?

Re: Petition to let SwissAstrid back

Fine, but if you can't stand the landlord and his barman- why make life unpleasant for the ordinary punters and cleaning staff? You are entitled to go to both pubs, fair enough, but if you prefer the Feathers down the road, enjoy it and only go to the other when you feel able to be pleasant to said punters? What is the point otherwise?

Nope. I was drinking in this pub long before the new landlord took over with his slot machines and jukeboxes, and I intend to continue drinking in here whenever I feel like it.

If the landlord doesn't like it, he'll have to bar me.

Re: Petition to let SwissAstrid back

Are you now trying to get Swissastrid back to the Forum or back into the pub? You lost me.

It's weird, I'm friends with people who aren't friends anymore with friends we both used to share, due to some f**cked up perceptions and perceived injustices. (I hope that is brain-processable, and it's an analogy I'm using from real life)

So people who used to be mutual friends are sole friends now. And I have to juggle this, 'cause when I talk to Friend A and mention that I just saw Friend B, Friend A is like, "WTF, he's a c***s**ker!". But it's not true.

People get hung up on details and fail to embrace the big picture. Yeah yeah EF is a big commercial enterprise and all that. And while I never met him personally I still like the dude who started the Spielberg forum. But- I bet you a hundred francs that if it got big enough, and an offer was made to buy it that was big enough, he would sell the thing. I bet. And I wouldn't hold it against him. But a lot of people would. The situation that led to the sale of this forum was tragic, and it was sold, and freakin' hell, it's still a hell of a forum. To get huffed up and march off due to some stupid TnC requirements, and the commercialization, yeah sure, fair enough. But it really ain't all that big a deal. And such a shame that some really good posters are now permanently gone. But hey, that's life. I totally dig it here.

Re: Petition to let SwissAstrid back

Hey guys, I just want a drink and a laugh. As long as the clientele is fun and the management leaves me alone, I'm as happy as a clam.

Just don't expect me to leave any tips.

DB, you're my favorite passive-aggressive-ist. And my little brother is going to resent you for that.

Re: Petition to let SwissAstrid back

So SwissAstrid should be allowed back in and Ouchboy should be voted in as Mod.

Meeting adjourned.
