This afternoon, I decided to walk on the wild side, and join Lakeshore Soup.  Like Ludington Talks, they have a vetting policy which makes you wait for confirmation before you join.  So I am waiting... waiting..... waiting.........


If the almighty Oz let's me in, I will meander peacefully amidst the Phillistines, the Gomorrahans, and the Sodomites, and preach the gospel according to Edie.  Wish me luck, and grant me advice, as I descend into this place.  I will keep you apprised of my progress among the less enlightened.

Meanderrrr? Furst lock & load, then take de dog wit yu, & de torch to see back safely.
Good luck Edie! I would be surprised though if they let you in. If you are not far left they really don't want you there. I hope they let you in though! Can't wait to find out...
You shouldn't have any trouble getting in to their exclusive club, Edie. After all, they advertise that Everyone is welcome - this group is for all communities along Lake Michigan, Mason, Oceana, Manistee, Muskegon, etc. I have a feeling they won't mess with Edie. I do think they will try to convert you, though. They seem to be a little light on membership.
Hasty Bananas, Edie. Remember, the timer doesn't start until you're actually in. Bring back some broth.
Judging by the new thread over at the Soup, i'm thinking your membership will be denied.

The 'ownership' over yonder is babbling something about how we are soooooooo heartbroken about not being there anymore. And that a few of us here got 'paddled' and didn't like it. Paddled? Really? Don't you mean that we were removed because we didn't 'fit the mold' or some of us left because there was no point in staying being that we were told we would be removed if we stayed?

Of course there is the typical delusion of grandeur coming our friend Behr, saying that we are sad for not being part of the group over there. I think its safe to say that nothing could be further from the truth. We have said repeatedly that we find it odd that although everyone is suppose to be welcome there, that the real truth is that your only welcome if you have a liberal view of things. If everyone was welcome then most everyone here would still be at the Soup. Its funny that their front page holds the biggest lie about that site.. "everyones welcome"... yeah right... lol.

Have there been some threads about the Soup over here? Sure.... just like there have been threads about the Torch there, I think its not uncommon when dealing with a rival site not to have some back and forth. Basically, almost every thread started here that had anything to do with the Soup was started because of something that happened over there.... either banning a member or being a topic of a thread there. It would seem that the Soup is just as guilty of 'not being able to get over it' as we are. If the Soup is a place where you can speak freely, it has a odd way of showing it.

Last but not least, if your group of adults over there Behr is actually adults, then maybe you could remind them to not come visit us. The last 3 weekends someone from the Soup has been making visits here. There only reason for the visits is to come here and be disruptive. Said person has come in and taken shots at basically all the former Soup members here, used profane language (F and S bombs... clear violation of most public forums TOS) and just trying to be a general nuisance. I think its most likely the same person and I am pretty sure I know exactly who it is. You want to complain to the children here, well, you got at least one of your own there. You might want to pass along to your members over yonder that if they are coming over here to try and cause trouble then they should 'stay home' so to speak... it just ends up making you and your members look bad. If they want to come over and be part of a open forum and be able to say what the want (within the TOS of course) then they are more then welcome. You do notice that whoever this person is, that they were able to sign up and come in and talk both times they visited. Can the same be said of the Soup? It's not looking like it to me.

In closing, people over at the Soup are no better then the people here. We all have are good and bad points. We can sit here and point fingers back and forth if we want but in the end it makes us all look silly.
Amen, Mr. Dave! If everyone is welcome, why is Edie's membership still pending? Two word answer: Hip and Pocracy.

Maybe she has did an Arianna Huffington and wants to announce it on the stoop of the Soup.
I think I could guess, over yonder at LT, both Ms. Z and Tuebor have been on Edie's case today for applying for membership there. So, it's pretty much a done deal unless the Blutobehr doesn't get the word from his collaborators. If he's Capt. Spaulding over on LT, I don't see him anymore listed either.
I haven't even checked LT today, just checked my pending Soup approval. Not even a blip on my E-mail from them yet, yea or nay. Arianna Huffington indeed!
