Great Threads of Our Time
June 24 2004
Messageboard threads are funny things. Sometimes you start one thinking to yourself ‘This will get a response’ and little or no reaction happens. Others you just lob in an idea and they take on a life of their own.
We have had many great messageboard
threads on this site, some serious others frivolous. Here, preserved for
posterity are a few favorites.
Real Time Role Play Tour of Narbonne, Jan 2004, Bisach.
It is a Friday.
Many of our community are in Southern France on tour. Those of us left
behind are feeling a bit gloomy. Threads such as ‘Reasons it is better
not to be in France’ and ‘They haven’t switched the lights off’
appear on the board. Bisach then suggests that those of us left behind
should go on a ‘Virtual tour’. The resulting thread cheered us all up.
Crescent, May 2003, BrianC
the Radio Four programme ‘I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue’ will be
familiar with this game. In the middle of the close season, with no rugby
to talk about, BrianC decided to see if anybody wanted to play. It turned
out that there are a few highly skilled players amongst the denizens of
the Craic. It has to be said though that quite a number of those who
contributed to this thread have little or no understanding of the game.
is the worst beer? , June 2003, Kealy
Beer, being a
subject close to many of our hearts, is often mentioned in threads. Again
during the close season Kealey, having recently had a ‘bad beer’
experience, launched us into the world of awful beers. What followed
served to remind us of some truly awful brews, many of which would have
been much better left forgotten.
