Ironically the very people who this thread was directed at, those few souls lacking social and emotional intelligence, have again taken over with their tired inside joke banter.

What's worse than having to endure poor quality tiki items? I'll tell you. It's having to endure the lonely, frustrated comedy attempts by some of the folks here. Having a talent for humor is a gift. Having the ability to generate an awkward grin from people because of your willingness to shock means you are what comics call a "hack".

TC moderators should also permanently ban anyone who starts one of those: "TC and everyone on it sucks, so I'm leaving and never posting again!" threads...and then shamefully comes back a few hours/ months/days later.

Buzzy Out!




Buzzy, I would love to do that mostly because those same people are the same ones who become enraged when no one begs them to stay. Next time you see one of those let me know, I'll slap an "Okay Bye" on it and lock it up. Then we can all watch as it sinks to the bottom.

I was hoping this thread would eventually deliver, and it finally has! And yes, my soul is lacking social and emotional intelligence....and, I like Adam and the Ants, but not the Beatles.

While I don't necessarily agree with all of the points above, it does illustrate a point. This site is often treated as a private social club and any "outsiders" should be happy being treated rudely or expect to be called a "whiner". I don't really know if anyone was whining, but this thread has proven the point of the original poster. What exactly is it about rudeness, elitism and adolescent exclusionism that speaks to or in any way supports the tiki movement or the spirit of aloha?

I have been into tiki for over 30 years and have found it a refreshing escape from the daily garbage many of us have to deal with. Other than a few experiences on this site I have found the tiki community to be inviting, welcoming and unpretentious. Why that so often fails to translate to many users of this site I will likely never know. It just seems to be a sad indictment of this site when it's defenders have to say that it's no worse than other sites on the web. I just always thought this community could aspire to just a little bit more than that.I guess I'm just a whining outsider...

GROG think we should ban BONG and put ATP and John -O on the chopping block. Their first misstep and chop, they join Bong in being banned.

I do indeed understand all the pop culture, sci fi , and other nerd references that don't really pass as comedy. And it's a sign of a true comedy hack to blame the audience for all the sounds of crickets that you are hearing.
