So we shall see. i wil sit back and observe for a few weeks. Rabbits don't dig options.
I'm glad there is a new site for a few reasons:1- I can swear.2- My wired persona can be far more megalomaniacal than my jclist persona.Seriously though, about the personal attacks. Please. Who cares if a few names get called? NON, for example, is a godless communist homosexual rabblerousing, nerfherding bastard.But that doesn't mean I don't like him.
Funny, I was totally thinking this morning that we need a nickname.Who wants a toaster?
It looks like I'm late to the party. It figures this site would launch the week I'm out of town and actually working. All the same, it's my privilege to extend a laurel and hearty handshake to our new...administrators of this here site. Congratulations and thanks to GLX, missa and NON for your efforts, and I look forward to returning to my normal schedule of unceasing posting and shouting when I get back to JC.Now if only I can figure out how to transfer the glossary thread over here...PS: what's the wiredjc equivalent of 'listers'? Wiredsters?
I can honestly say that i was torn about registering on this site. On one hand i have been a jclister for almost 2 years, i have met countless number of wonderful people on that site and i consider many of them close friends. I also do not believe i have ever had my posts arbitrarily deleted. So as you could imagine, i was not too thrilled to see posts on this site bashing jclist, especially when everything appeared to be fine and dandy less than a week ago. On the second hand, many of the friends i mentioned above will call this site home, and i would hate to throw away good friendships over something so trivial as website loyalty. So with that said, i will post on both boards and I hope that this does not become a "look what they are saying on jclist" site.
Personally I hope we're not even talking about this past this week.
Some history -- if memory serves correct, jclist started out to be a Newport list. It gradually morphed to encompass the rest of downtown and then to all of JC. While most posters seem to live downtown, I don't get the impression any longer that discussion about parts of JC other than downtown are verboten.
At the outset, before a name for this website was even registered, one personal goal of mine was to make this forum a place that represents all of Jersey City, not just downtown. My tenure at jclist began after observing some serious hostility and disrespect towards the "rest" of the city west of the NJ Turnpike (thus my username), and I was glad to see that the tendency to elevate downtown by putting the rest of the city down has seemed to fall out of fashion, without disappearing entirely. If in no other way, WiredJC distinguishes itself from jclist by putting the emphasis on the entire community instead of a few individual zipcodes, I will consider that a significant distinction.
As for personal attacks and insults, I know not everyone agrees with me and such is life. However, I see no useful purpose in attacking anyone, whether they are jclist, NWA or WiredJC members. Itís just bad karma. I bring this up because there will probably be a lot of animosity towards jclist. Some people had horrendous experiences and need to vent. I only hope that once the venting is over, thatíll be the end of it.
