Dorothy Parker --- 14 days ago -

I remember its heyday; when posts were flying 24/7, it was hard to keep up and a lot of fun!

Apparently, we are now witnessing its slow demise with less than 20 participants and hours between posts.

RIP KU, it was good while it lasted. 

Spanish Pantelones --- 14 days ago -

It's my experience that most message boards die from an unhealthy mix of politics over other topics. I was a member of a very colorful board at one point and always dreaded election years. It sucks the life out of everything. 

Spanish Pantelones --- 14 days ago -

I remember the threads about old Kingwood photos, crazy stories about ZZ Gators, ghosts in old toasters, etc. Fun stuff. 

idontplaynice --- 14 days ago -

Mods and trolls is all it is. LOL 

Spanish Pantelones --- 14 days ago -

Mods and trolls is all it is. LOL

Yeah, the troll thing is just ridiculous. No one even knows the definition. When a KHS student comes on for a week messing with everyone, that is a troll. Disagreeing with the supposed majority...uh, no! 

the Markster --- 13 days ago -

Mods and trolls is all it is. LOL

Amen

Most of the interesting conversationalist are in the ice box. The usual crowd. Time to purge the mods. All of em 

Prolix Raconteur --- 13 days ago -

It's chili weather. Post up some chili recipes! 

Dorothy Parker --- 13 days ago -

Agree! Chili and Chicken and Dumplings recipes...yum! 

the Markster --- 13 days ago -

Wolf-Brand chilli-cheese dogs mmmmmm

What?! Lmao. The same 5/6, including you, who are always iced?? They are the best conversationalist? That's just rich. And that's not who have been the good conversationalist on here.

But it IS a good example of what's WRONG with society. People not showing any consideration or kindness, or respect, being rude and insulting, then complaining bc they don't like the rules, which they defiantly consistently break. Changing the mods is your solution bc it allows you to not look within at your own behavior, or change it bc you fear accountability. You aren't some social justice warrior Paving the way to a better world when you can't even be nice on a local message board Or follow simple rules. 

the Markster --- 13 days ago -

Hence the time between posts. Try to ignore it. Between petty mod(s) and the same peeps in the IB those that think alike have nothing interesting to say. Not my fault.
KU Ghost town, yeah. The time on the topic speaks for itself. The number of posts are self evident.
Ignore it if you must.
*Purge the mods and see a renewal in postings. All the mods.
*All on KU serves as mod.
You can guess the rest. 

DVaz --- 13 days ago -

Too much politics and arguing here. Go to Kingwood.com if you want lively and civil conversation. 

The Awe Inspiring JoelleDrees (Mod) --- 13 days ago -

You don't want to get iced, stop doing iceable things.

Also, I'm sorry for misspelling "stirring", Mark. My autocorrect on my phone really just doesn't like me much. 

the Markster --- 13 days ago -

Because "storing the pot" isnt an iceable offence. Why are you a mod? 

JoyceD --- 13 days ago -

I mostly lurk here but it seems clear why it's become a ghost town. The moderating leaves much to be desired. 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 13 days ago -

You do seem to complain a lot, when you do post, though, don't you.. 

bwahahaha --- 13 days ago -

In steps her wingman. 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 13 days ago -

and in steps another troll!! LOL! 

The Awe Inspiring JoelleDrees (Mod) --- 13 days ago -

Well, stirring the pot definitely is, and that's all you seem to do. Why not post actual interesting topics instead of personal attacks and complaints? Obviously, that tactic isn't working or so well for ya. 

Defcon1 --- 13 days ago -

KU is now nothing more than 20 people constantly arguing.

It's dead. KDC is much better. 

andreweggplant --- 13 days ago -

The moderating is minimal... I lurk and rarely post because 99% of the topics on page one are political and have no specific concern to Kingwood. Get enough of that from other sources on a daily basis so don't need it here. It used to be fun and informative. 

idontplaynice --- 13 days ago -

It has become the Detroit of online forums. This is what happens when you let liberals take over. :D 

the Markster --- 13 days ago -

No..Thats all you see. Thats what makes a mod, a petty mod. Is that why you are a mod? Time to step aside 

andreweggplant --- 13 days ago -

If people would be "adult" and not post s@$#... no mod would've be needed. 

jackass --- 13 days ago -

Mods here are arbitrary, they can?t ban anyone so it?s not effective at all. 

Defcon1 --- 13 days ago -

It has become the Detroit of online forums.

You absolutely got that right. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 13 days ago -

This place is what we make it. Yes we have a person who is a Drama King Troll but so does every site.

Invite your friends and neighbor's, post more non political stuff, come here more often. Just bc some have moved on dosen't mean we can't make it good here again. Everything in life is cyclical, up and down, good and bad, new and old.

If you want it more interesting, make the effort. Everyone just post more, it will pick up. If you give up and do nothing, you'll get nothing. 

the Markster --- 12 days ago -

Invite your friends and neighbor's, post more non political stuff, come here more often

Yeah milk and cookie recopies make for stimulating conv.

Politics is the only game in town where the outcome effects everyone. The best part is, its not a spectator sport and it makes for stimulating conversations. If it weren't for certain mod(s) that have no appetite for "stimulating" conversation.
If I ran a web page that generates revenue based on participation. Id want stimulating conversations over stagnant conversations. Maybe thats just me.

Yes we have a person who is a Drama King hmmm I wonder who that could be. We also have petty mod(s) and life goes on.
*purge the mods
*everyone serves as mod.
*etc etc. 

the Markster --- 12 days ago -

Agreed

What, you don't EAT? LOL


There is nothing wrong will discussing politics but it's the WAY people do it. When you have to be snotty, arrogant and truculent, it's a BOREFEST to everyone who has to witness it. You need to open your eyes and mind and see that is the #1 complaint here, break it down and analyze it.

I honestly think you are all about arguing. You love it. You find it stimulating for whatever reason but there's a huge difference between real discussion and what you do, which is repeat the same 5 sentences over and over ad nauseum. You might not realize this but no one but you finds it entertaining.

This isn't your site or your rules, so repeating "purge the mods" day in and day out just makes you look like someone who has no emotional control and can't move on no matter how many visits to the cooler.


You weren't who I was referring to. So I accept your apology, lol.



We DO want to discuss other things on here and we WILL. You don't have to participate but don't begrudge others who would like a little variety. 

the Markster --- 12 days ago -

Just let that sentence set in for a few minutes.
It says it all..
Term limits for mods
Everyone serves
Etc 

gumbeauxgirl --- 12 days ago -

I almost bumped a recipe thread by Chunky Heifer for cheeseburger soup that I made yesterday. Then I wondered what was the point.

The nastiness over politics is what ruined this board. God forbid people have a civil discussion or even an argument like adults. 

TinktheSprite --- 12 days ago -

Chunky Heifer

Now THERE'S a discussion! 

Prolix Raconteur --- 12 days ago -

You don't see "truculent" used enough these days. Bravo. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 12 days ago -

Some people are just special, aren?t they? LOL 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 12 days ago -

I miss Perfection, and all the old posters- they'd argue, but not like the trolls on here now- pot stirring is their only objective, now- :(( 

Devil in a Blue Dress --- 12 days ago -

Too much politics and arguing here. Go to Kingwood.com if you want lively and civil conversation.?


I believe our beloved moderator was banned from that site which is what brought her over here. At least I think that's what I read at the time.

If you really analyze the timeline of events though, ATD, the posting here went downhill after she became a mod and was quite heavy handed. Now all the good folk are over on k.com who used to post here except for Perfection maybe. 

mutton --- 12 days ago -

Mark, if everyone had to serve as mod at one point or another this board would be gone. I shall not name, but i can see it now under some, lol.

Get over how is ruled here or go elsewhere. KDC is even more strict with the rules than here! 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 12 days ago -

Oh, Devil- Trust me, the old posters left for many different reasons- none of which were the mods we have, now- the only one on KU she had a problem with, has (and had,) many different alts- 

Gigix4 --- 12 days ago -

BINGO!
