Ghost town buisness as usual or cause for concern?

Unread postby JCoz » Thu Aug 12, 2010 3:55 pm

I can't remember specifically last year this time on the boards, but jesus christ its been slow as all get out on the boards for the last while....

Is this just this time of year or are there many, many posters that are MIA right now?

I have been thinking the same thing, this place is dead. I can only imagine it is part LeBron hangover, part Indians sucking, part not a ton happening with the Browns until Saturday (or is it sunday, whatever see I dont pay attention). NHB is dead IMO because the politics are just getting old. Same shit, different day.

Almost posted today about getting all angry over Barry talking about moving towards more rental subsidisies for low income families and moving away from promoting home ownership, but I just didn't have the energy.

Wish it would pick up though, its kinda boring.

Obama has officially killed all message board activity. I can't stand that guy, and his policies.

Where do you go for weeks at a time anyway?

I have it narrowed down to failed rehab stints or deployment to the Afghanistan-Pakistan border.

You're too tall for special forces though (at least from the cover you've carefully built here).

Are you a carny and this is the fair season?

Come clean.

Quiet you.

Listen.... I make the rules. I don't need no "rehab". I did piss on a Ford once, but that was when I drinking Robitussin.

And btw...... You're a carny.

well, i have been on vacation for a week... :hide:

I agree it has been really slow. i came back after a week without internet and very few posts in the tribe forum and elsewhere to catch up with. Sorry I missed CDT's birthday but sounds like he did fine with out my best wishes.

I did go to the Baseball Hall of Fame and may have a small report (with pictures) when i have time to post in more detail.

I'm suffering from LeHangover for sure, but damn it if these Browns aren't piquing my interest for another ride on the carousel of misery.

I still owe the Indians game-threaders a Manning "you are absolutely right" vs. Underwood pitchcount tally battle. Haven't forgotten, just not looking forward to doing it...

Um, as for everything else- August is a month for vacations and out of the office replies. Pretty standard.

It's not only quiet, but since the LeQuit we are all more than a little edgy... When we do post, we are a little less sensitive these days...

I just feel bad that I started a "doesn't it tick you off..." thread that has brought some of this rage to the surface and will likely result in 7 of us being placed on the watch list by the Department of Homeland Security. Heck, our phone lines and internet chat is probably already being monitored under the Patriot Act.

Ever since I found out that all my tweets were being stored in the Library of Congress, I've had sort of a WTF attitude about the whole thing with The Man.

If you want me, come get me.
