When a derogatory comment is made on something I said here, and I take the time to respond and explain my position, and get no reply.

I think this is why the quality of my experience on message boards (not just the one) has deteriorated so much.

We used to have some really great back and forth's on threads, great jokes, lots of disagreements. But you really felt you were having a conversation with people. But now things just stop right away or this happens.

A lot of people on Facebook post an update that gets many responses, only to be posting the next update without responding on the one they posted before.

I like to come here, and enjoy the communication. But since the tour, it's been very hard work, it makes me sad. (sorry I know we are not supposed to share about sadness here…sigh)

It was a unique time we enjoyed.
There was one official forum. For some of us, it was our first foray joining an online discussion board.
If I’m not mistaken, we reached in excess of a thousand members and, of those, easily more than a hundred were very active.
The band had released an album just a few years earlier; there remained reasonable hope for a reunion tour (which did eventually happen), there was lots of talk about appeasing fans with other releases such as of board tapes (which did not).
It created this lively, interactive environment, there were always things to read, a lot of reaction and responses to posts.
It was due to the mere fact there was just one official forum, and we had the numbers to create that kind of community.

Yeah. I think there used to be more of a sense of community on social media in general. People came online to chat with others, often with similar interests, as on the old "official" Genesis site.

Now it's much more me me me. A large number of people are only interested in themselves and no one else. Look, it's a picture of me with a marginally-famous musician, so I'll keep posting the same photo year after year after. Look, it's me getting drunk with my friends. Look, it's my breakfast. You... who cares?

You can't even have a decent argument anymore. Mr/Mrs I'm-Always-Right gets shown that he/she may be wrong, and he/she disappears. I kinda miss our old friend Po*o. cheesy

I'm here for ya though! cool

Me too! I don't post as much as I used to but I still think this is a decent enough place to hang out. I use Facebook as well but you can't beat a good old message board!

That dreadful sound effect used in every single Magnum advert. angry You know the one. The attractive woman of the ad bites into a Magnum ice cream, and you hear this blatantly fake crunching sound. Not only do Magnum ice creams make more of a light snapping sound when you bite into them (and sometimes the chocolate shell melts slightly beforehand, so there's even less of a sound) but the crunching sound effect used in the ads sounds more like three bowling pins being knocked over. rolleyes

Ok, please don't take this the wrong way as I'm in no way getting on you, but seriously? This type of thing actually bothers you?

Life's too short to let something like this bother you,IMO. Me, I'd just focus on the attractive woman. Guaranteed I wouldn't hear anything. wink Try that next time or do yourself a favor, and just change the channel! Whatever works, but please don't let these types of things bother you. It's not worth it.

My grandmother had a great way of not sweating any of the small things in life that might bother her or things like this, and thankfully passed it on to me, and in turn I passed it on to my kids. She would point to one ear, and say "that's what this ear is for". When anyone would ask what she meant, she would point to the other ear and say " it goes in this one, (then give the thumb/ heave ho type of action while pointing to the first ear), and say " and right out this one". smiley

Heh heh... it really doesn't bother me that much, man. grin

I always assumed this was a thread where you talk about even the most minor or trivial of annoyances. After all, the thread's decidely informal name is "What gets on my tits!!!" and not "Real, serious problems affecting our lives". Several of my entries into this thread are hyperbolic and half-jokey, not meant to be taken entirely seriously. The overused Magnum sound effect is slightly off-putting because it's been overused for years, but not totally egregious. I would never bring it up in actual problems threads (i.e. the Hand in Hand board).

(Also, I'm British. Complaining is just in my blood. laugh I even complain about other Brits complaining, so I'm a bloody hypocrite. rolleyes)

Haha. That's good. grin

Glad to know this doesn't really bother you all that much. I guess being an American, I misunderstood what "gets on my tits" actually means. I took it to be something that really upsets you, or as we say here, " really pisses me off". "pissed" = angry on this side of the pond. wink

cool grin


This may e a boring story, but that reminds me of a technique my person's grandkids learned in school. When they start to freak out because they forgot their lunch box or show lace comes undone or something (we are talking 3 year olds here) the teacher will say "now, is this a small problem or a big problem?' and they talk it out for perspective.


When they came to Florida in the winter the little one ran into the elevator and the doors closed and she was in there alone, she freaked! Once we got in there and couldn't calm her, we said 'is this a small problem or a big problem' she looked at us like we were insane and said through sobs 'A BIG problem of course!'

What bothers me is that those ice cream bars have probably been making people unhealthy and fat for 25 years. But they show a girl who is young and healthy running along happily.
