So.....where ya from?
What's your favorite Brut IPA?
Thoughts on dishwashing lambic?
That is an oxymoron.
This going the A/S/L route?
I miss the MSN chat days.
mIRC or bust!
/me enjoed mIRC way too much.
Undernet and DALnet ftw
Efnet was where all the warez was.
SWIM used to get MP3 from the bots. Downloading singles. Back in the day.
TxBrew clearly doesn't give a fuck
I think it's great for Gene that he got things out of this deal, and I think the best thing that could happen for the site is that nothing changes. But I mean, ffs, would it be hard for the new owner to at least pretend to give a shit about this community and what we're about? Participation isn't that much to ask for. The occasional off-the-cuff not-super-funny sarcastic "joke" isn't gonna cut it.
If you want to be a silent owner TxBrew, why not just announce that so that at least we all know where we stand.
If you want to be a part of a vibrant community, open the fuck up.
TxBrew has investment here. Expect monetization to come soon, he has to be expecting some ROI.
We were more than happy to give Gene our money because he didn't demand or expect it as a condition of use. TxBrew will both demand and expect it.
You guys are just so eager to assume the worst about people, it’s kind of amazing. TxBrew is traveling with family at the moment. He’s going to be checking in but I wouldn’t expect him to have a ton of time to engage and talk you all down from the ledge every two seconds, because every minute on here is one less minute with the fam.
Y'all so mad
Yes, I can just imagine the horror if there was a different banner ad at the top of the page where the Amazon ad already sits. I’m pretty sure it’s also a war crime to turn off ads if you get a paid membership. Oh the humanity!
I'll be the first to subscribe to the magazine.
As long as ant880 is on the editorial board
I respect that.
But why can't he say something along those lines while he takes time to cast out these flippant "jokes" about malware or "A/S/L" or whatever else that he clearly does have time for?
It's just a question of perception is all I'm saying.
Imagine if this post:
instead looked like this:
That's an unreasonable request.
Definitely fair. All I’m saying is that he was pretty clear and direct in his first couple of posts about his intentions here. Some folks just seem to be imagining all sorts of doomsday scenarios that really don’t align at all with what’s already been said.
