noob, not retard

Postby MannequinOFolly » Fri Aug 18, 2006 7:04 pm

im not a retard, i've spent about 10 of my entire life on forums, i know absolutely nothing about them.
it would be nice if someone whos trying to learn when they ask an honest question to not be called a retard, just because i have a life and not spend my life on forums.

So yeah, Bulletin Board System, the original message board.

Now, bulletin board systems were all text, no graphics, so this board doesn't look like a bulletin board system, but it still uses the name. :)

It’s just, you posted TWO of the same thread asking the same question, only one was in all-caps! Know about Netiquette? :P

Heh, don’t mind me I’m just being an ass. I donno why they call it a BBS, forum or message board would have done well enough, but oh well. I guess calling it “BBS” just makes it sound important. :P

Blogs are different though. They usually have stuff to do with individuals stating opinions on stuff or just explaining stuff that they do. SPS’s production blog uses the forum for replying comments and whatnot.

BBS is a giant circle jerk where we all ride unicorns and tell Erotic stories and giggle. :o

Blogs give the reader a chance to reply to a particular blog - the blog becomes the topic and all replies show up in the old BBS format, so people confuse them, heh. You can see this best on LiveJournal.
