New member intro scandal
« on: July 19, 2021 »
Like my sensationalist headline?

So I did some research, meaning I went through the first two pages of New Member Introductions, and noted that almost everyone has been welcomed into the fold either on the same day or the day after. There were only two exceptions: kobentino on the 19th of June, and now hughlle, who rolled in over the weekend. Neither even got so much as a reaction, leading me to wonder if people are selectively finally agreeing that likes are the fifth horseman of the apocalypse.

Both mention Bromptons, which made me think I was onto something, but no, others have used the B word without social sanction. It's theoretically possible that kobentino, at least, was perceived to have wiggled a toe over a xenophobic line.

I live in Japan so lots of my questions may seem like they’re strange - they are. It’s a weird place.

Then again this got the thumbs up, so I think not.

Will keep an eye on the situation.

The welcome wagon arrived.

Historical note: CC used to advertise itself as fun and friendly, and I did have some fun there. Later, Oops!

If there are any moderators who still lurk, can you confirm the rumour that all animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others?
