I have a feeling RA might be getting more members from RW (Read 2523 times)

    I don't always drink beer, but when I do I prefer Yazoo Dos Perros 2-for-1 specials around a fire pit with lots of RA'ers at a pizza joint with a challenged wait staff.

        As for profanity....

         

        It's legal.  But it ain't a hundred percent legal.  I mean, you can't open up any thread, go on a roll and start Murphy-in away.  BCR wants you to cuss in your home or certain designated places.

         

        Breaks down like this, ok... It's legal to know it.  It's legal to think it.  And if you are the proprietor of a thread, it's legal to say it.  It's illegal to attack people with it, but that doesn't really matter 'cause, get a lot of this, all right - if you get popped by the mods in RA, it's ILLEGAL for them to search you. I mean, that's a right that mods in RA don't have.

         

         

          Wear do you guys get this shit from?   Also I thought it was wrong to speak of this place in the GSP?  I think we might have a double agent among us.

            So I guess that profanity finger wag was more of a guideline than a rule. Fucking A.

             

            I was here for four years before I encountered the term "GSP".  The place is not scary, but it is fun that some folks in the special groups (especially Masters) absolutely will NOT venture out and post here.

              I'm just giving the new people a hard time.  You should have to earn the right to curse around these parts by being here awhile.  You don't walk up to the new neighbors house and say "Hey can you get your fucking kids off my goddam yard!"!

               

              Yeah I find it funny as well that a certain female in the swamp will never venture out to see what was said about her in the GSP.

                The term GSP was coined (by none other than JK) during the First Great Coolrunning Immigration of 2006 or whatever. Back then there were only like 30 people who ever posted in these forums and then all of a sudden there were hundreds of new people yammering away in their coolrunning lingo and shit.

                 

                Nowadays there are so many of "us" that we can absorb an immigrant population much more easily and you're right, it's not scary at all. The are be assimilated.

                  Several years ago I was looking for a couple of last-minute folks to fill spots on a relay team when a couple decided to bail.  Someone suggested I ask around on the Masters board.  I popped in there and found dozens of people I had never seen before on RA.  They were all very active, so it wasn't like it was a few random lurkers.  It was like some weird parallel dimension of RA, or something.

                    That started back in the coolrunning days, where those folks were known as "Boomers"  (because until about 10 years ago, pretty much anyone above the age of 40 was a "baby boomer". No more.)  They had their own area and they didn't venture out of it because the similar social areas... like the coolrunning clubhouse... were, in fact, kind of scary.  So they have their own place and are very happy in there.

                     

                    It's a lot of folks too!

                          (perfesser, I assume you aren't a swamp-er either then.  GSP is a term used in some of the groups like masters and the swamp and I suspect that lady place that I am not allowed to refer to.  "Great Scary Place". As in, "the regular, open-to-everyone forum area.")

                            For realz.  I had no idea!  People had talked about the Masters board, but I would never have guessed that the membership roll would be so vast.  It's truly like a running site within a running site.
