Poets Corner Demolished?

by Nick
Seems like our old hangout has been wiped out. Can't find it on Google even. It's like it never even existed.

You can still find some pages in the Google cache. For instance, search "nickdedick".

Interesting that there seems to have been spam posts as recently as mid-December, so it was just recently killed.

I think it was your saying 'bollocks' at Wells' that did it.

For instance, search "nickdedick".

Ahh, good, thanks. There's some things I need to copy down, like the lists of what I liked 2004-5.

Could be! On the other hand, that was in response to something by someone else, that he was quoting. So I really wasn't saying that at Wells.

I'm getting all teary-eyed thinking back to those days of innocence...

Was I ever so naive to believe that Jude Law starring in 6 major studio releases in a single year would finally catapult him to the A-list?

Frankly, some of the things I wrote... I'm glad they're gone. Or very hard to find now, at least. I'm not saying what, but I still shiver at the thought.

Scary thing is, I'm sure there was plenty more. Googlecache will get me fired one day. Or divorced. Suppose it depends.

I noticed that it was gone a couple of weeks back but didn't think it was worthy of mention here to be honest as it had been dead (just not officially so) for quite some time. There'd been no discussion of note once we left and that was well over 6 months ago - that it took this long for it to be taken off shows how little interest Wells had in it.

you guys are hilarious.

Are we planning anything for our upcoming 1st anniversary?

I think we've gained one reader and lost 2 contributors...we're -1 for the year!!

Well if we started using AdSense on the blog we could maybe earn enough money to buy something, like a muffin, for one of us to eat at the anniversary. Question is, who gets the muffin?

Well, obviously the first thing to do would be to decide what kind of muffin it is going to be. I don't think we could possibly decide who gets it before we know the answer to that.

Actually, even that is putting the cart before the horse, so to speak. At +/- 30 hits a day, I doubt AdSense would even support our gluttonous single-muffin ways.

Obviously it would have to be done over a period of time. If we started now we would probably be able to afford one by our second anniversary.

You killed the forums!!

Last I looked, and it was a while ago, I saw tumbleweed blowing across some of the threads.

Then I realized I was the tumbleweed.
