Jesus Christ Eddie, don’t you think conspiracy theories should be saved for things WORTH conspiring about? If getting together with fellow travelers to create a not-for-profit website full of information for travelers includes some sort of nefarous "agenda" in your mind, I have to re-iterate: paranoid psychosis.

Were you in the CIA at some point?

Geez. Get a REAL cause to get worked up about. You don’t even know us and all of a sudden we have an "agenda" and we’re trying to "shut down" eurotrip. I’m sure Wandrian cares dearly about your ‘loyalty’. Who are you loyal to, posters or a corporation? WHATEVER is all I have to say.

"create??" You have piggy-backed on Andrew’s original design … that’s not creating; it’s ‘copying!’ For a detached, objective opinion of what we have here, read jordanjg’s ‘post’ and auher’s ineffective reply.

I don’t know you?? You’re a person who spams the board with profanity when someone disputes your opinion! You want to control other people (ex. use of the term mandatory in your post addressed to all Eurotrip members). jordanjg’s ‘post’ addresses your "shut down" Eurotrip issue also, so your agenda is evident to more people than just to me.

And I care about a BBS without personal attacks, pandering or profanity. But I am loyal to God & Country! Anything else is ad hoc.

oh please eddie, the profanity was not used specifically bc of the board – jboy and i have other issues unrelated to this stupid messageboard that are spilling out – i’m not someone to run around telling people to go fuck themselves when i don’t even know them! it’s a half-joke and sorry to include that on here, but i just couldn’t hold back.

sorry about the use of mandatory, but you need to chill out – we just got a little worked up about the new site…i can’t believe how seriously and with what grudges people regard forums on the internet! i can understand getting worked up about a corporation that is it in for their own self-interest – but getting into a snit because some people who were trying to improve things got a little overzealous and then dragging the whole thing up and beating it to death is just really petty.

you really think i’m in this for my own glory? that’s downright laughable; i hardly have free time as it is – travel is just a passion not my job – and soon enough I’ll be a doctor making 6 digits and no need to ‘pander’ some website that is my hobby to a dumb company that will take it over and essentially lay it to waste.

besides the jboy issue, your reaction really makes me wonder how seriously you take real issues within your own life!

I think hope is going to give up the waste of money that is the medical profession for the surefire goldmine that is internet message boards.

Who could blame her!

You and auher spamming other forums, trying to convince Eurotrip.com members to abandon Eurotrip and follow hope and auher: What do you call that?? Pettifoggery! In case you’re not familiar with that word, it’s one that’s used in the South for Political mischief.

Talk about beating something to death: Isn’t that precisely the objective of your campaign against Wandrian? You even admit being "a little overzealous."

When/where did I write that??

Interesting: how you in your wisdom assign a personality trait (‘dumb company’) to a man-or woman-made artificial entity.
BTW
Why did you wait so long before launching your campaign? Wandrian took over Eurotrip.com at least 3-years ago …

What kind of doctor will you be: an MD Psychiatrist or a PhD Psychologist?? If it’s the latter, you might use some of this for your Doctoral Dissertation.

you are absolutely ridiculous.

are you going to try to make auher and i pay for being over-zealous with the initial start-up of the board for the rest of our goddamn lives? this is what i mean about petty.

what does calling a corporation ‘dumb’ have to do with anything? BTW, the 14th amendement actually confers ‘personhood’ to corporations and protecs them as such, so there is actually some merit to my adjective!

the wandrian ‘campaigning’ and ‘bashing’ or whatever you want to call it has been over for a couple of weeks.

this topic is so dead

get a life!

If we are to follow what Eddie (who normally reads what he says before he discredits himself) says, we can see this :

1) hope is bent on internet, nay, world domination

2) she is mentally unstable

3) she is driven by financial lust

Safe to say that[url=‘http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supervillain’]hope[/url] would be better off battling the Justice League, Superman, Spiderman or a host of other super heroes in her onslaught.

If hope is a real supervillain, I picture her as more of a Catwoman (it is the suit) than the Dr Doom or Galactus type devourer of worlds that some people here think.

Christ, use your fucking noggins.

Why don’t you and your horse get off this Board and allow those of us who choose to remain with Eurotrip.com a little peace!!

I think I covered that with my: "Interesting: how you in your wisdom assign a personality trait (‘dumb company’) to a man-or woman-made artificial entity." ‘Merit’ to your adjective? You’ve got to be kidding! Your first reference was to a ‘dumb company.’ Not all companies are corporations! But in order to defend your stupid remark and to carry your argument further, you upgrade the Company to a Corporation. I know quite well that Corporations are assigned certain traits as beings (artificial) depending on the State in which their Articles of Incorporation are executed, where they are domiciled, and their Charters. Delaware is a very popular corporate domicile.
quote:the wandrian ‘campaigning’ and ‘bashing’ or whatever you want to call it has been over for a couple of weeks.
So you do admit that you participated in a Wandrian ‘bashing’ Campaign recently!

I don’t think Wandrian is a U.S. Corporation; and as such, it may not have the protection of the 14th Amendment. In Europe there are several other levels of Business Organization: Societe Anonymé or SA, is the equivalent of Incorporated or Limited. But then you also have Societe Limité or SL, which is the mode of organization that Wandrian is more likely to be.

BTW
You didn’t answer my question (about your Doctorate)!

If I were a Moderator or the owner of this BBS, all of your posts promoting your ‘copycat’ BBS would have been deleted. You and auher and anyone else who attempted to sabotage this BBS’ membership would have been revoked (along with any ability to post messages). I don’t know how much longer Wandrian will put up with your Crap, but I’m sick and tired of it! Why don’t you just go over to your other BBS and forget about Eurotrip.com?? You wrote:

So this might be a good time to bow out and don’t let the doorknob hit you in the arse on your way out!!

LOLZ!

I have always thought "did you forget to take your medication?" was an overused expression, but it is a blossoming term under Eddie’s watch. I suppose age has something to do with it.

Hint : stay at your own goddamn websites people!

Phew!!!

I’ve just been reading this site for a while and have been a little afraid of posting, but I’ve just started recently. This is better than the Days of Our Lives, let’s face it.

Well, one of the beauties of being human is free choice, so we’ve all got the lovely advantage of deciding whether or not to visit eurotrek.com, which happens to be just starting, but messages are promptly responded to and is very easy to sort through, although lacking the wisdom of ages on this site.

Hope- You’re gonna need to get a bodyguard pretty soon, lol! I’m half expecting somebody to pull out the guillotine.

Notice the bottom right of the page….2002 Wandrian Inc

Inc for Incorporated-

Eat the food, use the wrong verbs, and end up getting charged double.

Hope, I think I speak for all when I say "what are the issues unrelated to this messageboard that you and jboy have?"

Anyways, I don’t know what the fuck is going on, I couldn’t care less about fucking wandrian or absent moderators, no moderators, boo hoo, I might have to show some self control and not read the occasional spam that finds its way here or have to read some profanity in the favorite places forum, who gives a shit.

Why all these other sites I don’t know, never got it, I was fine here. I moved however simply because other people did, that may sound like a follower mentality but really, I like Hope, Sickboy, and yes even Jboy, I can’t be bothered finding another board and starting again with new people so if they go somewhere well I’ll go too since ti beats posting to myself. If they came back I’d come back, I have no loyalty or beefs with a fucking internet site……..never understood why the soccer moms split since I left for a few months and when I came back the split had happened, but I never went just because the people didn’t interest me……I like the new board because of the people, why we needed the new board I don’t know, and if it was abandoned to come back or everyone still here went there great, why this whole loyalty or hatred toward a specific site……I think people need to take a look at their priorities in life really.

I suppose that for some people, a priority is to try to make things better; better as they perceive better to be.
With any group of human beings, there can be undercurrents, background stuff going on. Some people are oblivious or purposely tune out. Others enjoy being constantly embroiled in melodramas or intrigues, while still others might get pulled in.

The "soccer mom site" (I may resemble that remark, but an awful lot of people there do not, and its founder, mouse~, would have laughed at such a description) was basically an experiment which began as temporary, but then continued. The reason it came about was much the same as EuroTrek.
quote:If they came back I’d come back, I have no loyalty or beefs with a fucking internet site……..

You are not the only one. Not everyone has the "one site mentality" Wa1ter mentions. Eddie aside, I’m not sure loyalty has all that much to do with it.
Some people do or do not hang around here or BBB because of personality differences. Some people detest tension and conflict—and some are bored without it. Some people prefer more bells and whistles to an internet site, some don’t need or want much beyond a bit of conversation.
Yeah, in the grand scheme of life, none of this stuff should matter that much, and any possible "issues unrelated to the messageboard" do not keep me awake at night.
