It has come to my attention that I cannot deal with some of the inhumane interactions that go on on the main board. Is it okay if I decide to spend some time with you lovely people on the West End board for a bit?

Tsk, CON, don't you know?

It's OK to call Mama an old queen and a blue rinse with a bus pass...

But grandpa? Not quite!

I should explain for our new visitors from the New York board:

There's a lot of ribbing that goes on between the regulars. It is, in most cases, good-natured and an important demonstration of that wonderful British trait, the importance of not being earnest.

Ribbing is fine, I am, however, not a fan of the viral insults that get flung back and forth between members on the Broadway board.

Winston, you know you're always welcome here.

We're always congratulating ourselves on how friendly we are, so it's even more of a pleasure to have it confirmed by the other side.

(sounds like the Bye Bye Birdie thread is a good read...)

Yea, there is no need for out right abuse on things like this, I'm sure people get there fair share day to day, without getting it off a board, where, ultimately, we are trying to share the thing we enjoy!

The majority of the guys on the Broadway Board are cultured and intellectual, unfortunately you get the odd arse wipes on there who get their kicks from bullying.

Here is such an example by, BobbyBubby.

Glad to say the West End board does not represent that is to the point and jovial, bit like a very extended family.

That Bye Bye Birdie thread is a good example of what the Broadway Board do so well.

I've started my own bit of mischief on there but no-one's biting the bait.

What bothers me about the Broadway board is this. You take someone who likes a show and they write about it. However, the show might not be a popular one such as the revival of West Side Story. However, instead of understanding that someone has a different opinion then you, you start to get bashed because of it. They don't understand the beauty of opinions. There is no right or wrong with them. That is something that people who post on the Broadway board seem to forget.
