P&R forum closed & a few thoughts II

Since I posted out. Wanted to continue the Discussion...

I was off for weeks because my account was linked to a very old email and could not get back in. Finally able to use old email again and Hate I missed all the discussion on thread I.

Sure do miss the P&R, haha

This has to be a trolling post cool . P&R forum was closed for good reason. P&R forum closure thread, in this forum, was closed for good reason.

The fact P&R type threads are sneaking in to General Discussion is a terrible thing and could well usher in the Last Days for the org - without the aid of Jehovah Winesses.

The first rule of Prince.org from here on in, must be that you do not talk about P&R forum. Like ever. No more Rittenhouse posts. No more Trump accuses media of fake news posts. No more Sexy Sadie is the new Sarah Palin posts. No more 2freaky getting upset because 'Some Blacks are Punching well above their Weight in spite of alleged Racism' posts.


If you're pro human rights, then you should also be very pro freedom from oppression. Anything less is double standards.

If you can add value to someone's life then why not?

The P&R forum closure thread in this forum was never closed. It expired after 60 days like all threads do.

I agree with this. I'll add that for a couple of weeks, I had the reflex to post a story I saw in my timeline(s). But then, when I couldn't, it eventually passed.

Now, I don't miss a fucking thing about it. People that post there and went so deep into their wormholes were living in a vacuum; an echo chamber. They only wanted to hear their own ideas and beliefs coming back at them. Anything - they were too simple to try and comprehend or understand, even if they disagreed.

I'm glad it's closed, and should stay as such indefinitely. It ended a Moderator's presense, and his possible alter ego, or just another guy who was his lap dog. People are people, but P&R is dead to me. I'm okay with that.

PS If there was to be a part II of this thread, Ben should be the only one who starts it. The subject has been cussed and discussed to death. Let the dead bury the dead.

It doesn't really make a difference any more. I check in once a day and the posting is way down. In 24 hours there have been 37 new posts...it's dying a slow death day by day.

I think the final, final nail in the coffin was the site hack which required orgers to change their passwords from the email accounts they used to register. Many orgers have been here so long that they don’t have access to those old email accounts anymore. Some created new accounts, but I’m guessing more just didn’t even bother. I’ve never seen General Discussion this barren.

Not going down that road. It's unnecessary. I was able to make my point without naming them.
