I like agent, too, even though she always tells me to shut up.

Well, I feel like I helped a little, which is all I can really ask for.

'ze even said "of course for someone to post more than 4,000 posts in less than a year requires an average daily post total ~ 15 - which is pretty hardcore."

but there were some hardcore spammers. go figure, the law of unintended consequences is a bitch.
Exactly. It really isn't and never was a "gift" or "surprise" for the rest of the members. Thoughtful attempt to smooth it over, but I pretty crappy to use that against NYC for outting it. It's pretty obvious that the criteria that you all set included the core group of "old timers" (the board's first 18mos of members that still continuously post). NYC didn't spoil that "gift", she revealed the "old timers" private forum. It's common knowledge to any one who's been here awhile that a number of the "old timers" have been unhappy with where the boards have gone; I'm sure the Malarkey debacle just drove that point home. I can understand parts of this... but then, I'm not one of the "old timers" having only been here a year.

Certainly couldn't just create an "old timers only" room without leaving some guidelines for everyone else to make their way into at some point. That just wouldn't look right if anyone discovered it. That's how it appears anyhow. So the whole "gift/surprise" thing really has a bad after taste for me because I don't think that's what the creation of that room was about in the first place. Since this is all out in the open now, who were the very first allowed members of the darkroom? What criteria did they meet?

Absolutely. Why not start your own fiction/writing forum only? One that you all can control the content, members, etc. of? Ze's boards attracted different types of creative people over the years, not just those who write. He's allowed and accomodated all types of creativity. Would be a whole lot easier for you to create the more focused, streamlined writing environment you desire than he at this point don't you think?
