I used to hang out, and very occasionally post, at TWOP. I jnew of the existence of PT but after a look or two it didn't hold much appeal because it's not a mix (at least, in the Shopping Channel area). It's not snark and info, or snark & happy, or snark "and" anything. It is all snark, all the time, and nothing but. It gets boring and predictable. They don't really want any posters there that are not 100% snark 100% of the time. As far as being hilarious - well, certainly the posters feel they themselves are hilarious. Aren't we all a hoot, etc.

 

A steady diet is boring. It's like what they say about adult entertainment - after watching half a dozen it puts you to sleep.


Moonchilde, I like your comparison to checking out a p*rn site.  You do so once, out of curiosty, then you've had enough.  I did visit this forum yesterday, read the posts about tv shopping hosts.  Most of them were about QVC hosts, and were much more cruel than any of the posts I've ever read on this board.  Or any other board!


 

 

@september @Moonchilde

when i checked out the page that the original poster linked to i read that page of posts and thought it was absolutely cruel and ridiculous. they had nasty, mean "nicknames" for the hosts and very few other threads were even remotely interesting. i agree......it was a lot worse than what we have seen around here.


@sunshine45

Hi sunshine!  Just wanted to make a little point of clarification since there DOES seem to be some confusion.  It is the TV board mentioned in the OP (previously TV) that has this awful host bashing.  The Vegas people don't engage in that, ever.

Terrier, that's not the mod. Different person, similar name. The mod has the same name in both places.

Re: Just Found Another Shopping Channel Forum...

Sounds worth checking out.  Wondering if people who have dropped off these boards might be over there.

While I had my doubts as well she's Madalaine over there.  Amazingly she has more posts here.

I can't tell if you are agreeing or disagreeing with me.  What I said is true.  You're right, Yankee2000 is Madalaine over there...and she's not the mod.  The mod has the same name in both places (and the same name as the site).  Different people with similar names.

hi @scotttie .....hope you are doing well!

yes, i was not referring to the DY boards, but referring to the previously tv board that the op was recommending. she had provided a link in the previously deleted thread that took you right to a part of those boards.
