Wow... some of the posters over there make this site look like a 1st grade playground!
Harsh!

At least here, some people are actually funny. Over there, it's boringness or bitchery or both, except for Alan Scott, who seems very articulate and smart.

Not to mention it's arguably over-moderated. You WILL stay on topic.

I thought they had strict moderating there so that there aren't any fights.

I have a little crush on MikeR. But I don't post there anymore. I once had dinner with someone who posted there who was a terrifically nice guy.

I prefer the free-wheeling insanity of BWW. I actually like the fact that a lot of our posters are younger.

They are a bunch of stuffed shirt humorless prigs. Some of them are over here, too.

I like the fact they don't tolerate trolls.

It's so cute that they refer to BWW as "the other board." And rarely actually link to it.

I spent five minutes there once.

That was enough.

Eh. I think there's value to both, but I don't even remember my log-in name for ATC if that tells you anything. There are sometimes fascinating conversations between some of the old-timers (said with deference) over there that offer some great insight into theatre history. But too often, they got bogged down in dullest watching-paint-dry debates about things like whether a show's title should really have a colon in it. I mean, come on...

Oh, and, yeah, MikeR can have it.

Not to mention, the format is extremely convoluted and hard to follow.

The place also lost some of its vibrancy when the site crashed. Or was down for maintenance. Or whatever happened a few years ago.

The format is my biggest problem with it. But obviously the folks there have adjusted to using it.

On a side note, "bitchery" is such a great word.
Art has a double face, of expression and illusion.

It's pretty much the same format if you switch to threaded mode.

Pretty sure the lead moderator over there is a suburban housewife with nothing better to do than watch the board 24/7, deleting whatever she feels like.

Also what's considered "off-topic" seems to change by the minute. Apparently it's on topic to post that it's a random celebrity's birthday, or to ask about restaurants, but off topic to talk about theatre performers on television.
"You travel alone because other people are only there to remind you how much that hook hurts that we all bit down on. Wait for that one day we can bite free and get back out there in space where we belong, sail back over water, over skies, into space, the hook finally out of our mouths and we wander back out there in space spawning to other planets never to return hurrah to earth and we'll look back and can't even see these lives here anymore. Only the taste of blood to remind us we ever existed. The earth is small. We're gone. We're dead. We're safe." -John Guare, Landscape of the Body

And that childish moderator doesn't realize that you don't take sides as a mod.
