Well after all this time posting replies to twits and seeing some very good posters go by the wayside. I feel it is time that I cant be bothered anymore. I am not leaving I just wanted to say that Morris is a [email protected] and I am bored. . .. .I want to read more enlightening things from people I have come to regard as Intelligent, Enlightened and Friendly. Who will broaden my sometimes blinkered views. . .So to Velvet, Tricky, Tony, Hug, Slasher and the rest thank you, even to you Tartan.. .(Tear in Eye). .Lets have some interesting posts like of old and more smut again for that matter. . .. .Thanks. .Justin

And I was just going to open another bottle.... .. .TDL, I find that every now and then I have to take a break from PPRuNe-ing. But I can't be without it for too long. If you need a break, that's up to you, of course.. .. .But please come back soon. Have enjoyed reading your contributions here.. .. .As for the trolls, my last absence was enforced by a fit of pure rage and fury to the extent that I couldn't even bring myself to read the trash that was being posted without wanting to rip someone's intestines out. That passed. Now I can simply ignore the jerk.

Well I must admit that I have been staying away quite abit, I never remember Morris before. I wont be staying away. I just want more arguments about religion politics and porn. We used to talk about what was going on in the world and how we would put it right. We would have posts that would be 500 long that would say left and right of the subject. We would take the **** out of somebodys spelling not bothering to listen to their argument. Arguments about who is harder – Bruce Lee or Van Dam. The jokes used to be filthy and so was the language. Even Slasher has agreed to be good. People used to see how far they could push the envelope. Not anymore.. .Now Weasles like “he who must not be mentioned – Voldemortesuter” even get airtime – lets gat back to basics and spice up JB. . .People have taken to cut and paste threads from other web sites, this is not the spirit of JB. We have never in the past needed others to start a topic so what has happened now?

TDL, feel the same nostalgia for the times when men were rude and wimin were juicy.. .When talk was sex, flying and politics with some religion and jokes thrown in for good measure.. .But they're not coming back, ever.......... <img border="0" title="" alt="[Frown]" src="frown.gif" /> . .. .You ask what happened and I THINK it might be the following. (but it's pure speculation so don't hang me up on it!). .. .With an ever increasing amount of people wanting to be part of pprune and trying to access it's pages, the need for server capacity increases.. .Server capacity costs $$$$$.. .. .To get money, advertisers are needed.. .Advertisers do not necessarily appreciate their name and logo appearing under a story of me bonking a captain or Slasher explaining about his boob-fetish. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="biggrin.gif" /> . .Advertisers are also weary of politics and religion.. .. .Apart from the advertisers, there seems to be a fairly large contingent of ppruners who mail the moderators with complaints when anything posted does not conform to their own unique morality.. .This is time consuming for the Mod's and a pain in the neck to boot.. .. .So once upon a time long long ago, Uncle Danny tried to institute the Hotel Lobby Rules of Self Moderation for JB.. .This worked sort-of but not quite.. .. .A while later, no doubt when bileous from too much JB-hassle, Uncle Danny posted the BIG RED LETTERS at the top of JB.. .. .For more thoughts on JB, copy & paste this link: http://www.pprune.org/cgibin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic&f=4&t=006243&p=1. .. .It's a thread i started a while back, when feeling very bleak about this place.........

And the Guvnor is gone, so is O.C.B and Capt. Ed Good old days indeed.. .. .Well, Slasher got away with stating that he tasted an orgasm recently, so all is not lost <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="biggrin.gif" /> . .. .There was an experimental J.B. a while ago where everybody could talk filthy for $50.00 or 50.00 Pounds or something like that.. .Whatever happened there?. .. .Here is to a bright future for J.B. and all the inhabitants with no morals and strong opinions. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

Hi All!. .Athough only a recent arrival, I couldn't agree more! I deliberately don't post to the Dunnunda forum because of its morbidity and whinging attendees. I come to this place instead.. .What we need is:. .1. Definitely more sex (both on the forum and outside it). .2. Lots and lots of rude jokes, especially religious variety (helps keep perspective). .3. Lots of good drinking stories. Especially the ones where we have made prats of ourselves. .. .Maybe we should petition to start an adults only version of JB, where all those that have religious, political, and sexual hangups (or lack of) are not permitted to log in. That obviously means we all have to register as filthy minded, drunken deviants. . .. .Sound ok?

I believe some of us need to be reminded ocaisionaly that sign on the front door to jb reads ** DO NOT ENTER IF YOU ARE EASILY OFFENDED ** and some need to be told that this is not an open invitation to be a prick. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Frown]" src="frown.gif" />

Prune and chat was off air yesterday so I went eerrr "out there", yes I did, its so bright,the air sort of moves around and pushes against your face, theres no carpet and your feet make clacking sound on the floor,the ceiling is blue with some white fluff.. .Not sure I like it.. .There are no chairs.

Nor an open invitation for self-righteous windbags to proclaim what is and what's not acceptable in their little corner of cyber heaven!. .. .That society is richest, which celebrates it's diversity loudest...subject to the El Presidente's rules, of course. Sad, though really, 'coz politics don't 'arf get the blood movin'!

Some of you, especially those who have joined recently, may not be aware that there have been a number of "anything goes" "hotter than Jet Blast" forums in the past, (not actually on PPRuNe thou)but they only seem to last a few months and die out. While they are fresh, they are hot thou <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

I think ole MS is getting a kick out of seeing how easy it is to manipulate people and groups of people.. .A few well placed, deliberately controversial comments here and there, caused the whole of Jetblast to go ballistic a few weeks ago.. .An attempt to spread poisonous views. .is one thing, but winding people up is quite another.

The interesting thing is that one gets a feel for the various posters and on the whole a lively irrevrent bunch of freethinkers with a fresh interested outlook on life, opinionated and in most cases amusing with a healthy sense of humour. Some can get grumpy and the odd fight breaks out which generaly entertains the peanut gallery but generaly a fairly companiable bunch. . . Sadly there has however also emerged a touch of rather cold slime that from time to time appears in various guises, is very unpleasent and to my mind rather cold reptilian and rather unhealthy. No prizes as to guessing to whom this refers to. But very un-entertaining, quite spoils the atmosphere, uses lots of names and has a particulary nasty outlook on life. I personaly wish it would wither and die.

Being Exothermic has its advantages, if humans were cold blooded we would probably live for 500 years,but we would only have sex once a year if we were lucky,hmmmmmm, no change there then.. . <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="tongue.gif" />

My humble appologies to the reptiles and slime I so odiously wronged by linking them to the stench that drifts into JB from time to time. I was being rather impetuous and allowed myself to get quite carried away. The noxious poison that I was refering to however is quite concious of it's popularity, quite revels in it in fact. Rather likes rolling in the muck one feels.

I too value diversity and believe utterly in what used to considered a principle 'I may not agree with you, but I'll defend your right to freedom of expression'. . .. .This is not a licence to be offensive, and it is sometimes difficult to defend someone who is unattractive and out of step with the majority. This also doesn't mean that one should just accept without argument or disagreement what anyone says. It does mean standing up for others' right to be heard, even if you strongly disagree with what they say.. .. .Some of the most interesting, entertaining, informative and well-supported threads have been about politics, sex or religion. That these threads also attract some of the more unpleasant posters is something that we cannot and should not seek to eliminate totally. Should we just prefer to read only that which we find compatible with our attitudes and outlook. . .. .JetBlast, like PPRuNe, is changing, it cannot do otherwise, for nothing can remain in stasis, no matter how much we would like that. It either grows or dies. Yes, the JetBlast of old was more bawdy and far less restricted, but it also had posters who were just as, if not more, obnoxious than we have now. That these were allowed considerable leeway says much for the tolerance of those both who own and manage this site, as for the other posters. That they were and are unable to realise and take advantage of this tolerance says little for their own intellectual honesty.. .. .Like TDL I too find myself wondering whether to post or not more than I used to, and deciding not to.. . . . <small>[ 24 March 2002, 18:23: Message edited by: Velvet ]</small>

Ooo 'eck! Big Red, now you've done it. Age... time passing... wrinkles and senility beckoning. . .. . There is a fascinating theory about the passage of time and why it appears to be passing quicker as we age. If we cast our minds back to our first conciousness of time, say around three or four and recollect the interminable period that used to stretch between such exciting events as Birthdays or Christmas it seemed to last for ever. But then consider that a year between events at that time was almost the same as the span of our concious thought. At the age of say fourteen the year appears to pass quicker because unconciously we have measured it against our measuring stick of known time ie about ten years of concious memory and a year is now a tenth of that. At thirtyfour birthdays and Christmas glide by quite quickly and at fifty fairly whipping by. I am told that as Alszheimers and short term memory loss begins, the process does slow down somewhat. Finaly when advanced age is reached some difficulty registering what all the hoopla and tinsel on the tree is all about can set in.. .. . Now if that wasn't a total digression I dunno what is. Velvet, you shame me, you are quite right of course, I really must try and ignore the one visitor that quite burrowed up my nasel passage, for indeed diversity is the spice of life. And besides how are we to judge where the low water mark is unless we have something to act as the bottom of the plimsole line. . . . . As for describing our very own Mr D as a dwarf Fantom, that definitely deserved a red line through the guest list entry.

You know what it has really cheered me up to see some old names are still here.. .Velvet I have really missed your eloquent style and your tolerance. . .TW straight to the point. OZ good to know that you are still there.. .I hope that you are all well. . .I think that I will still stay at the side lines and look in, like a father watching his children grow, with their friends coming and going, petty squables between peers. With a knowing look in his eye.. .Good to know advertisers cant take away our memories. - Prehaps we could ask Danny to start a nostalgia page for those funny - memorable and down right disgusting posts of yesteryear.
