Really badly worded post, sorry

Sorry, I won't participate in naming people as I don't see the point and think it could potentially cause strife  as you have probably unintentionally made this about people being "infamous" which is not necessarily a good thing.

Suffice to say, I could probably name a good 50 or so members and then another good whack of past members for a variety of reasons.

btw ... adding "Go" at the end of your post is more likely to get people's backs up than participation!

Is there a connection between the ganging up and the naming of people?  unsure.gif

I'm not sure that sort of thing is allowed ?!

This won't end well.



There is often talk of a gang or clique. I don't see it. I take every post on it's own merits.

I love this forum. It is the only one that I fit into (well I think anyway) biggrin.gif

OP, are you saying that:

howdo
soontobegran
Badcat
Greenbag
tamm

are gangstas?

You've just listed five of my favourite EBers. They ain't mean, they don't gang up... I have a lot of respect for them. I'm not quite sure what you are saying in this thread or alluding to but i don't think these five wonderful gals deserve what you are implying.

I don't understand the point of your post.  I also don't see a lot of ganging up, I see people that obviously get along well and I also see lots of people coming together when it's needed.
Of course there are a few very funny, very regular members that stand out and I could probably name 30 or so off the top of my head and then there are probably heaps that I have never noticed.  What's the point of listing them though?

It would take me a long long long time to type all those names.

I could also probably tell you who is friends with who outside EB but being friends doesn't automatically equal ganging up or being joined at the hip and posting in the same threads.  I've disagreed in threads with people I consider to be good friends IRL.

Wow, I have certainly been misunderstood. I was just asking what names people could reel off from the top of their heads as a bit of fun. Just mentioned the ganging up thing as explaination for where the idea came from. Really, EB is too uptight for words these days.

My apologies if 'GO' offended you ky.

I don't think she is saying they are a gang but they are high profile and if they are seen to be agreeing with each other than other members mistakenly see it was ganging up.

See this is the part I am totally ignorant about.  I have zero idea who is good friends with who irl and who has history with who etc.  I also don't remember very well from one thread to the next.  Gets me into a bit of trouble at times  wink.gif

Do you really mean to say that you never see people gang up on PBQ

Posted 03 December 2012 - 05:44 PM

OP, the standard response to this is "OH, I have no IDE-AH what you're talking about".

But, yes, your instincts are correct and there are other locations where like-minded individuals gather to agree with each other and then contribute to EB in unison.

And my crystal ball tells me that the next few posts will be denying this. ^^^ biggrin.gif

I DONT THINK ANYONE GANGS UP. I personally just read posts and dont really recognise usernames, so it would be hard for me to notice if anyone was, which made me think about how many usernames I could recognise, which isnt many. THATS ALL.

I could probably name about 100, but it would feel a little weird, like I'm singling them out or something, and I've already been weird once today.

There are some top-tier members who give either very funny or very incisive answers that can't be argued with...after they've posted you expect to see a number of members high-fiving them...I don't think that's problematic though. Sometimes if someone's posted something silly everyone wants a piece of them and it becomes a bit of an onslaught, just by the numbers of people posting the same thing.

#22 EsmeLennox

Posted 03 December 2012 - 05:52 PM

Sometimes people gang up, sometimes they are just agreeing. In the recent thread where there were accusations of ganging up I think it was actually just people agreeing.

I feel like I have agreed and argued with enough high profile members on EB to not be accused of ganging up. For eg, STBG and I have had some brilliant disagreements, but on other occasions are totally in accord with our points of view.

Listing names... How long have you got? I've been here 11 years and my memory is long. That said, I don't really like lists that often amount to popularity contests.

\
unsure.gif  shrug.gif  Don't know if I'd call it 'gang up",  I think PBQ frustrated many members at times with her style of posting (me included) so you saw lots of members showing that frustration but I also saw everyone come together to help her when she went through a difficult period.
I think sometimes lots of members have similar views and each express it in a thread, doesn't seem to me like they get together and decide to make life a misery for that poster but maybe I am naive.
