It's been a while since I went to BG but it looks like it's even slower than it was last month if that's possible. It has become the Metron show. MV should just give the site to Metron and be done with it.

AOC posted this in their True Confessions Of BellGab thread today:
Where is everyone ?
This site has slowed down somewhat.

And there is this today from BG land from WeinerInHand: "Alright, folks. I'm done. This site has devolved to the point that it is nothing more than the back of an elementary school bus where we learned our first swear words. I'm 45 years old and I have no interest in this. I'll miss some of you. Take care."

Shitposters like Myke, Metron and Brig dominating conversation is the kind of thing that kills forums.

Vandeven - it's OK, you don't have to actually pretend anymore that these people are the least bit interesting, funny or insightful

Take away the posts from those three and Dr MD and there goes the majority of posts. MV is now suffering the karma from the parameters (or lack thereof) that he set up for BG. Members tossed from here end up there. It seems BG has become the Ellgab Zoo.

Hey, that pic is Photoshopped and if it is really you, I always suspected you might be a 'Deviant'...   ;)
(Heh, heh, heh.)
...and I like the name you chose for your website.
Keep warm - up there.   ;).

I did a quick search on your surname and found your family coat-of-arms / crest, removed the name, scaled it, sharpened it,  enhanced it with a bump map, and added tranparency to two of the exports. The colors are original. No Photoshop - this was in gimp. The original image was tiny.  ;)

Basically, all he said was that you were nuts to say something "doesn't look right" about him.  And, he's used sharp words with others, too, so I wouldn't take it too personally.  He would probably be happier if you accepted his feedback even though the way he said it wasn't very nice.  He told you to stop brandishing ideas about him which he denies.

Would you rather he avoid expressing his feelings and then just shut the place down when he's had enough?  That seems to be what happened on July 4.  Or, can you take his honest feedback, honor it, and move on for the sake of peace, if for no other reason.

Starr, of course it's him.  There is a paper trail all the way through his name changes in the name change thread.  He doesn't "have" to leave such a paper trail, following his own policies.  As the owner, he could have skipped all that & we might never have known his real name.  But every time, he leaves a paper trail just like the Bible leaves the "Begats" for everyone who is interested to follow.  Therefore, it is most likely him.  He was just recently on a podcast, so if his own forum's avatar had been hacked, I think he would have mentioned it!!
You're right, of course.  I just feel that after the friendship we had shared, for almost a decade, was too easily tossed aside without warning or explanation, and no, he's not required to do so.  It just leaves me feeling bewildered, and betrayed.

For all intents and purposes that is true. MV can still claim bragging rights for what the site once was and while he made the claim that he wants us all back including the cat ladies so that he can watch them "get triggered," he is actually glad that some of us are gone. His pet peeve was anyone telling him to moderate his site. I dared to say something about that once and I think I was one of those he had in mind for the glad we are gone category.

I do understand the points of his ethos with "free speech" for its own sake, but I have also have seen the results of that plan when there is a concentration of those that take this ethos with a nearly religious zealotry.  I have also been on over enforced sites that with every post you feel like you are on eggshells. I guess in this way I am the ultimate centrist. Everything in moderation - pun intended ;D We all in the end after everything is stirred settle at our own level. Ellgab is about the right balance. If they enjoy Bellgab the way it is, then I hope they are having a good time. The pressure relief/overflow valve works both ways. I have never felt censored here, but then again I have never felt compelled to make a lot of noise, be a baby, pick fights, or be radical for the sake of being radical.

It is true.  Is the name of his avatar "Mike walker"?  Never heard of him.

He spoke harshly.  I don't think he tossed aside your friendship, though.  Maybe he's grown an "edgy" side?  It was harsh, but at least he didn't use any words like "bitch" or anything...
