I hate that shitloads of people have piled in on a small issue I had with the way people were being treated by Kate and the way she felt she had control over a part of ILX and made it some big AILSA V KATE FITE OH NOES incident when that was never my intention and then it kept spiralling and spinning off into every thread and got brought up here when I was at work and I went off on one because I'm sick fed up of people misunderstanding what I'm on about and it's not even just me that's doing it anyway, there's Kate-directed snark all over the board and at least I was trying to vocalise exactly what my beef was, which was with ONE FUCKING THREAD

Longest sentence on ILX?

Stevem, there shouldn't need to be another chit-chat thread. I don't want there to be another one. I nearly like the one that's there apart from the hovering "step out of (MY) line, you ain't welcome round here boi" threat implicit throughout. And, as I said, you (or Kate) try convincing me that starting one where you can having fleeting mentions of reality TV or sporting concerns isn't going to be perceived as barrier drawing. Doing that = saying KATE IS WRONG. I'm not going to be the person to do that, no matter what she or anyone else thinks.

I don't even want to talk about football and telly and whatever on the watercooler. What started this whole recent shitfest off was Kerr mentioning Paris Hilton displaying racist tendencies and asking what teh watercooler massive thought. I said what I thought in passing and referred to another populist incident of "celebrity racism". then I (not Kerr) got shit for dragging non-Kate-ordained stuff into the Watercooler. At that time, it was kind of difficult to go "ooh some high profile people be racist" without mentioning BB. I even apologised for having to mention it! Oh read the fucking thread yourselves. I didn't even break Kate's precious fucking "rules", yet I still got scapegoated. THIS IS WHY I DON'T WANT TO TALK ABOUT THIS SHITE ANY MORE IT IS RIDICULOUS.

(fuck, I actually typed that with gritted teeth)

Also, Gerry, yes, you are hilarious. You're also walking to the football on Tuesday now. Ho ho, meta or what.

ha, I should get one fucking blog, like waht I said to Kate. Except stet's made one for me.

(joke - seriously, I never went in for the self-justifying on real-ILX/sandbox because it would have been too meta. Now I can. Hurrah! Except I feel like an over-reacting tit, whatever that feels like, ha, please stop me typing I AM DRUNK)

If it gets too serious the fanny is removed, but usually "ignore him her, he's k8's a fanny" suffices.

I don't really see why the Watercooler hasn't been taken onto its own closed mailing list by now. It's always the same ten or so posters anyway, and at least it would allow Kate to do the 'my gaff, my rules thing' to her heart's content without worrying about undesirables reading the thing and using it against her.

I think this of the rest of the chat threads as well TBH but the Watercooler in particular seems to be of even more limited appeal.

Anyone can post on it. I never posted on the early ones, i didn't know Kate at all yet I was welcomed there.

pfunkboy (Kerr), Monday, 19 February 2007 11:22 (sixteen years ago) link

i just think of it as another local thread like mongrels/sheepfux0rz which i've literally never gone into.

temporary enrique (temporary enrique), Monday, 19 February 2007 11:29 (sixteen years ago) link

Historically the Watercooler threads were started because K felt she was being shouted down or ridiculed on the TITWIS threads, so really there's no reason why anyone unhappy with the way things are done in WC land couldn't similarly start a chat thread of their own, even though I agree with Matt that this type of thing will most likely lead to further atrophy/entropy at board level.

shit is so fucked people don't even know what is or isn't a parody thread.

resumo impetus (blueski), Tuesday, 20 February 2007 18:18 (sixteen years ago) link
