I don't think she's talking about spam...she's talking about wanting the recruitment stories forum focused on new stories only.

I haven't got anything up my ass. Just tired of you letting this forum become a cluttered mess. Not as good as it used to be!
Ew.

Kill the messenger. I have private messages from others who agree with me. If someone dissents, this place erupts with BS. That is why I have chosen to post privately.

You haven't chosen privately. You've posted as a sock. Those are two different things.

I love the Private Message Army! There are a lot of old threads being bumped, I guess due to the spamnado attacks. There also aren't a lot of new recruitment stories this year. Spam+ bumps+ few new stories means things are slow.

Creating a sock to complain seems overly coy though.

LOL. A regular on GC but doesn't know the "I've had lots of people message me saying they feel the same way" claim is laughable.

We're in rush season...posting retro recruitment threads seems more appropriate now than doing it during, say, Christmas when most things are slow. CurlyGirl and justamom's threads, while over a decade old, still have great advice especially for young ladies rushing in competitive systems.

Dear OhSoCranky and Private Message Army,

Don't read the threads which annoy you, or HPRL is ready when you are.

Sincerely,
Me

Dear Crabby Pants,

Go help someone somewhere. Go do service work. I guarantee it will change your mood. You won't have time to be frustrated about your inability to live vicariously through strangers' lives.

And for the love of Mike, don't be such a keyboard chicken/bully. If you have something to say say it under your user name. Forget the "private message army" making you "right"; that is an unconvincing strategy.

If someone on GC bugs you, you can put them on your ignore list, it's really effective. You're not being held hostage here, you know?

Missing reading the usual bumper crop of great stories this year! Both from pnm's and parents. Also, while I do understand the reason for delaying telling your story, I don't think that the average 18 year old will be as motivated to write a detailed recruitment story many days after the fact.

also wondering why are there so many weird threads about Michael Kors and sunglasses??

For the love of God, why does GC not have a LIKE BUTTON? LIKE, LIKE, LIKE, LIKE!!!

The lack of current, real-time stories is evidence that there is something wrong. If you could stop circling the wagons, you would see that I'm right. Too many stickies. Too much old stuff clogging up the forum. Too many grannies trying to tell girls what they should or shouldn't say. But, go ahead and tell each other your old and tired rush stories from the 80s. Whatever.

See,we don't care what you think. Go to another board! We're obviously happy with our mixed age groups and stories. Did you think we would cringe when we read your words of "wisdom"?

People are sharing their recruitment stories in Greekchat Facebook groups and other places so they don't have to listen to malcontents like you complaining if they aren't entertaining enough. Then we come back here to talk about other subjects. And about jerks like you.

Bye bye!
