Question Jet Blast II

OK fellow PPRuNers Danny has created JB II for those of us who canot keep our minds out of the gutter (shame).

It had to happen as PPRuNe gets more popular and the entry fee for this club is nominal - but is it going to be worth it?

Whose going to stump up and join? It will need about 20 or so of us to gain sufficient momentum otherwise it's £50 down the drain.

My hand's up - any others?

Well I must congratulate our mightly leader on his intelligence and business sense. What better use for smut than to make money!
Line up the deviants make their wallets noticably lighter and send them off to play in a special room

Such is the admiration I feel right now for your ability to turn a buck from human weakness that I just had to take my hat off to you and post, breaking my silence.

What can we expect next from your brilliant mind boss, I hear those numbers you can call to hear women talk about what they are wearing are very popular also.

Yeah, it'll stop the bickering about what is right and wrong on JB. Good idea to make people pay for typing their own smut. Personally, I'll spend my money on flying.

Fifty Quid?????? NOMINAL! okey if you are well paid 4 stripe occupier of the left hand seat, but to those of us on the lower tax band I doubt it!

A tenner would have been reasonable, £15 at the max, but not £50.

I'll stick with the original JB thank you and self censor my postings.

HOWEVER, this gives me an idea. What not carry this the full mile.

Should Danny set up, for a fee, the following "Sons of Jet Blast!"

THE PULPIT. Specially for the likes of OCB and other Bible Thumpers where they can save each others souls.

THE NEW JERUSALEM for all the liberal intellectuals such as HM, U_R etc, etc, etc, where they can talk about what a lovely world they would make it if only they were in charge.

THE BIER KELLER for all to the Right of Centre who can fulminate about the above group without having to put up with their whineing wet bulls**t in response.

THE LOONEY BIN where those off the wall types can post way out threads that nobody really understands but are amusing to some.

INNS OF COURT for lawyers where they can indulge in mutual admiration, discuss obscure precedents, Latin Tags, Judges of yesteryear, Court Procedures etc.

A bit like the Daily Papers in a way, chose the one which suits your bias and interests and ignore the others.

JB2 brilliant concept, banish everything controversial there, never to be seen again...... sorry may be seen for a nominal fee.
Neat, packaged and gone.
I'm not being sarcastic, it's genuinely brilliant.

Not A bad idea TG,Folks could make a kind of pilgrims progress.
Begin in the Loony Bin, confused, surf the Pulpit and see the light, progress onto the New Jerusalem, become cynical, progress to the Bier Keller, be dragged up in front of the Inns of Court, and sentenced to the Loony Bin.
Loony Bin sounds more like my natural habitat
Something almost Zen like in progress like that.

You know the bait is irresistible, Tartan, and it is very wrong of you to cast it on the waters. But Okay, why not, by substituting a noun, accommodate in one tent the wretched lawyers (hereinafter referred to as “WL”), the classicists, the sexually explicit who have brought the current plague upon us, the literary lot, the movie lovers, Dr Bowdler, the saintly physicians, and yourself as arch-Latinist, with the inclusive but soft focus:
Inns and Outs; or
Membrum Virile: Quo Vadis?

Ominous. no. However I'll hazard a prediction that JBII doesn't last very long other than as a dump for inappropriate subjects. It will be undersubscribed as most of us are not here for its purpose.

Crikey! A posting by Tartan Gannet containing a vaguely aviation-related reference! Is that allowed?

When I was young and naive in the ways of the PPRuNe I was under the impression that JetBlast was for jokes/moderate-rudery and ranting/whingeing within a loosely aviation-related context. Nowadays it's jokes and rudery plus setting the world to rights/ranting/why-oh-whying about whatever makes your teeth go frothy. I don't blame Danny et al for seeking a further source of revenue to keep the mighty machine going, but it is a bit depressing that this place needs a closed "adult" room at all.

I can get almost an hour's worth of aerobatics for £50 so I'll continue setting fire to my money in that fashion.

A piece of strategic brilliance by Danny IMHO. The Slashers of the world want to find the boundaries, now they have found them. Nobody is going to take the chance of paying 50 quid and being the only silly bugger in the new forum, so it will die a lonely death, yet Danny can rightly and fairly say to anybody who wants to complain about free speech that he has provided a place for exactly that sort of thing.

And let's face it, if Slasher (nothing personal,I'm just using him as the most obvious example since he provoked all this) is only going to be obscenely outrageous to people who don't care if he's outrageous, he isn't going to be there either. Anybody who's had kids is familiar with that syndrome.

A master stroke, Danny. Now, where were we?

Yes, excellent. Prurient and scatalogical exchanges are not my cup of tea, although I don't necessarily condemn those for whom it is. Nothing to do with flying though.

But a question - does this now mean that JB (original) has to be moderated ? Otherwise what's to prevent the offenders (no, make that perpetrators) from just doing business as usual.

Steady Tiger,

Most of you have sussed it out and read between the lines. You know what's on here and what isn't - the explore the boundary types will face a very small audience

Thumbs up

A point of information - Jet Blast is one of the most expensive forums to run due to the bandwidth it requires. So if you don't want to fork out £50 for JB-2, at least consider spending a tenner on a PPRuNe badge!

Well this thread has had a day to run, and the outset is a pretty predicatable - NO WAY JOSE.

If PPRuNe needs the holding folding then email me privately and I will cough up, a little (and I mean little) chunk.

Self moderation appears to be the way the board desires, I think some examples are going to needed and I don't believe you will make any friends highlighting them.

Forwards to victory or the next medical at least...

This could be used a bit like wheelclamping. Any inappropriate use of other forums will result in the thread being wheelclamped in JBII.

A 50 quid fine is levied to retrieve it!

Don't think I'll be coughing up the £50 either. Certainly if all JB traffic died when JB2 went live I'd consider it, but I can't see that happening....

As for paying £10 for a badge, I think I'd rather pay a little more for the personalised screen-name message - just need to decide what message to go for first! Any suggestions welcomed.....

I hope none of the regulars de-camp to JB2 - I'd miss everyone!

Not interested in going there myself, if, as I understand it, it's purely for the smuttier posts. But it would be a shame to lose the more eccentric posters to JB2. Save your money and stay here everyone!
