I just read that thread on buzzle FF.

I still don't see WB bashing. Most people just said they love buzzle and they check WB occasionaly. If u are really attached to WB I am sure it can feel like a slap in the face...but it's not. Especially not against members. If there is any bashing I'm pretty sure it all comes down to SJM

Maybe a FB thread would be easier?

Maybe I missed those posts, which I agree, are not necessary. That said while I am sure that's there and was probably ore so earlier on, the vast majority of the site barely mentions WB except in the context of who someone was on WB or a post from WB...stuff like that.

It's not like the site is a "We hate WB" site or anything

I appreciate that... which is probably why threads like that one stand out to much... just makes me want to reach through the internet and give people a shake and say "get over it. You moved on to another forum, so move the hell on already and stop bringing it back up over and over and over again"

Whatever. *shrug*

I'm kind of sad that everyone's jumped ship for somewhere that's so thoroughly populated with people who just can't stop badmouthing WBs. frown (having just gone back after 2 weeks of not being there and just this morning I read another 2 threads which I found personally offensive because of the attacks).

Don't get me wrong... I bear no ill will to buzzle's existence, I hope it thrives... I just wish there was a place for me there to keep up with some of the people who've left here, without being attacked. I guess I just don't understand why the WB exodus spawned sites that survive longer than a few weeks always seem to feel the need to gripe for so long about how horrible it was here and how much they hope this place dies, or how happy they are to see things slow down.

Whatever happened to live and let live?

Come to the dark side ladies! (buzzle I mean).

I still don't know who you are talking about FF. Maybe I'm in the wrong sections but I don't see WB bashing at all.

And if there is any I don't think you should take it personal. People were pissed at how the split was handled and why it was split at all. Buzzle is like WB used to be before the split.

it's hard not to take constant references to "over modding" personally... what with having been a mod here for 9 years and all. And those were comments in the last 48 hours. In threads in two very different sections.

People WERE miffed at how it was handled, that's fine... I can understand that... I'm right there with them. But this is beyond how the owners handled the split, and it was MONTHS AGO. Why cling to it when the choice has already been made to leave the forums and 'move on'?

Plus... the ongoing 'recruiting' on the CanFam side is really not cool.

Congrats Destiny!

FF - I totally get what you're saying about buzzle. I see the posts you are referring to. However, I font think the over-moderating comments are directed at you... I think it's directed towards the owners of the forum and their rules. You were just the messenger, trying to do your job as best you could under the rules set out by SJM. Buzzle has less rules and therefore less moderation required.

I prefer a safer forum the buzzle. I find it unsettling.

Yeah... it's not like I'm specifically LOOKING for insulting offensive posts, C. The threads I've seen them in generally start out pretty innocuous, and then... WHAM!

And if it's a matter of complaining about the number or particulars of the rules... then say what's meant and gripe about the rules, not about the enforcers who have always just been trying to do the work without much support or guidance. Saying it's "over modded" says "the moderators are on a power trip and overstepped their bounds". Which is frankly untrue.

It's ok, it's not some new strictly buzzle thing. Other spin offs have done the same before... there's a seed group in every exodus who feels the need to attack and insult. I just don't particularly feel that it's necessary or healthy to put myself in a position of seeing that kind of crap. But it sucks that I've lost touch with quite a few great women because they left to "follow the crowd" and can't be bothered to come back (except to post oh-so-pithy threads about how deserted it is here... or to 'recruit' people from CanFam to the BB-type forums there... which incidentally we have actually been told to treat as advertising).

And there's no point griping on another site that this one is dead... if they're so damn concerned about the lack of posts here, there's nothing stopping them from actually posting here to 'fix' that.

Whatever. I'm not getting into some stupid us vs them pissing match. I'm just bummed that some of us mean so little to some people that it doesn't matter that we (a) haven't become active over there, and (b) feel that it's a hostile environment for us. *shrug*

I'm sorry FF frown

I only post on one thread here regularly (CF) and three threads on Buzzle. I just really don't have time for either with CMA.

It is sad to lose touch with people though, I know how that feels. I'm happy we have our little FB group wink

All that being said I miss this place and plan to post more when I'm done CMA, I don't have hard feelings either way, it's more about traffic for me.
