By my last count, I belong to six Susan fan sites, and I've posted on all of them when I had something to say. I've only been here a few months, because I didn't know this site existed. It's a delightful place to be. There are no eggshells underfoot, my tongue doesn't get sore from biting it, and my feet don't ache from tiptoeing. From my very first post I knew I was in the company of kind, bright, witty people who love Susan and love to laugh.

The troubles at our big sister fan site are entirely home-grown. I've never read such vituperation or ill-will toward fellow members on any fan site, anywhere else, ever. I applaud Dyebat's efforts to institute real change. I hope the perspective becomes broader, more inclusive, less judgmental of those with differing opinions. Let me echo what I read from everyone here, without a single exception: We wish our sister site well. Many of us are members there too. No one wants to control you, or destroy you, or take over your turf--that is, no one here. I would ask those who point accusing fingers this way, why aren't you tending your own garden? It would seem you have plenty of weeding to do.

And one more thing: Yes, we do make fun of you. That's because you are funny. So are we. The difference is, we're proud of it. So next time you go reading spoofs to sharpen your outrage, why not try looking for the funny part instead. If you don't see it at first, look again. It is there.


I agree 100%. If I have a beef with our sister site, it is that many of its members take Susan and themselves waaaaay too seriously. Remember the Susan we were all drawn to by that initial audition? She is quirky, cheeky, funny, earthy. We do her a disservice by demanding that everyone genuflect and speak in hushed tones around her. Susan is quite capable of seeing the humor in a situation, and the humor in herself. I think she'd enjoy the banter here. We honor her by laughing with her, not at her; with each other, we who were brought together by her; and by not placing her on a pedestal.

Such true words. And fair. Hope they reach the right ears.

Hey Bossman! Skywriter got us back On topic again with a fantastic post and elegant to boot, can you ban her? Give her a warning? Take her cookies away or some sort of evil moderation. I mean really, this site staying on topic it will ruin our hard earned reputation of being rogues. Very Happy

The folks here are having too much fun and laughter to hack a web site. I think the web site would need to be worth hacking too.

The word hacking has me thinking of my poor kitty with a hairball. Lucy

It is an honour and a privilege to know so many good, intelligent and witty people as are on DJG's site. The "other site" has now become so boring, vindictive and nasty that I seldom bother to go there.

I totally support and respect both Dyebat and Lchris' incredible generosity of spirit, the time they have spent in sincerely wanting to buy the site to give it back to the members in a transparent way.

I am heart-broken at the mayhem that has been caused on the site and hope that one day the culprits will be able to look at themselves honestly and deeply and realize the grief and upset they have caused to so many innocent people who sincerely love and admire the wee lady from Scotland: Susan Boyle.

I notice that since a thread was started at "the other forum" noting the laissez-faire style of this site, questioning why members of this site would want to visit that more heavily moderated site, and admonishing members of this site to abide by all rules of that site when there - that there seems to have been an up-tick in membership here. Just wondering if that's coincidental - - - ??

Alrighty, enough deep thotts - back inside for the fun & games!

Could the person running that site please fix the gadget at the top with the rotating quotes? It makes the page jiggle up and down, and thus makes it impossible to read. Maybe just replace the gadget with a simple text box with several quotes on bullying. Thanks!
