New in the Plaza?

Check in and tell us who you are or where you've been if you're on the flip.

Old bum or first timer, we don't care. Just tell us what's on your mind.

I'll be heading to rehab soon, so scrutney's in charge while I get my liver transplant and a new pancreas, couple of new lungs and a penile implant, whatever the hell that is.

Have fun and flush the toilet.

here we go again!

I'm here, and it is deja vu all over again!

'Cept I've only used this format with my long gone WebTV, and don't have a clue what all the options and symbols mean, or how to use them.

(I've never had a computer, and only use an iPad).

It's actually the original program, but is version 3.2.1. All the stuff we couldn't do with the old forum, seems like they were listening because you can do it now!

Stumbling through the plaza these days means keeping a safe distance from the slave market unless you like getting your leg peed on or stepping in human feces.

But i digress.......

Hey everybody! Glad to be giving y'all some room in the janitor's closet of our webserver.

Ahhhhh, just a feeling of homecoming! Great this forum has been resuscitated. Got lost under one of the benches opposite Casa Monica.

Happy to see the familiar names, sorely missing those we lost, and hope to meet some new members, too!

Where's Freddy?

Make it a challenge to add one (or more) new members.. Without new members the site will become stagnant.

I think I've got an email list from the original site. I won't swear to that. Maybe you could write a couple paragraphs as kind of a teaser and invitation? Even if i don't find the old list for whatever good it might still be, I could send out a batch to some of my 15,000 cell phone contacts ...

i'm working on it.
but i really don't want to step on anyone's toes.

i did send "a message to michael" in pm form.
if history is any indication, this board may have a preponderance of members leaning...shall we say...a certain way.
i'd like to see more balance even if i don't share that person's opinion.

coe, you and i have always and will always fight like a dog in a cat house.
we exchange ideas and snarky comments...but in the 11 years we've been online adversaries, (and occasional comrades in arms), we've always kept it under control.
i like that.

Sent some invites by pm on Facebook, still have some more to get out. I sent out a tweet as well. I need a four or five sentence invitation though and I'm open to suggestions.

tired of inane memes, russian meddling, pictures of cats and recipes for inedible crud, clogging up your facebook timeline?
sick of being browbeaten for expressing a political opinion, by an intellectual non entity you knew in grade school?
does attempting to express a complex thought in 140 characters, seem more trouble than it's worth?
if so...plazabum.com may be the place for you.
brevity may be the soul of wit, but excess has it's virtues too.


yeah...i know...it needs work.

I can ask CandyAlicia53 if you want her, but she'll be manstalking scrutney.
