Why does the pub suck so bad?
    #1558954 - 05/19/03 12:23 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

The idea is great, an otd without all the negitivity. But the problem is its about as exciting as a funeral home in here. Nobody wants to hang out here because theres garunteed to never be any excitement. I think we should just kill it and pretend it was never here

It's simple, really. The flames, post-whoring, porn, and hello.jpg are what makes OTD such a great place to begin with. The Pub gets rid of all that, so it's OTD without the substance. Conflict creates entertainment.

Nice play, Shakespeare... :wink:

Seriously, true enough, but The Pub doesn't suck. It's just different from the OTD, and it fills a different need for different members...

If i were in the otd i could say something like: certain users are getting more than ther needs filled. And it would be very funny and we'd all get a good chuckle.

I actually like "the pub" a lot. a different group of people post here. none of that mindless teenager name calling you get in OTD. Besides, if you've ever been to a pub and dug the vibe, you know what our "pub" is all about.

I like the pace of the Pub, you can post something and not have it on page 2 later that day.

I also like OTD, just depends on the mood I'm in.

If you don't like the pub, don't post here. If you don't like OTD don't post there. If you like both, post in both. They are not meant to compete, just different options to users..

Choice is good.

We're out of pretzels, and beer nuts too. There's a Teamsters stike. SuperPimp has some connections though, **cough** mobbed up **cough** and he's supposed to get the taps flowing again...

I like the Pub too!
But if you're into verbal conflict and general nastiness, may I recommend the Newsgroups?  :grin:  There's a nice little flamewar now going on between Alt.usenet.kooks and Soc.men.
