What is this forum about?

This is not meant to be judgmental i.e. I am not talking about the whole purpose of bimmerfest and the rest. It is a simple question.

What is the refugee lounge forum?

I see threads and responses but they make no sense to me at all. Are they all private jokes? If so why bother with it on a forum.

If you are sharing some interesting pictures be they of women/men or whatever, I could still see some point even though I may not wish to participate. But it is loaded with cryptic comments.

Maybe I'm just a dumb Londoner and cannot appreciate the finer humour on display.

It's a forum that should never have been created in the first place as a sop to the toadfly refugees.

It's a lounge in the form of a forum for refugees. Or is it a refuge in a lounge implemented as forum? (I forget) Is anyone listening? Can someone write this down so we don't have to repeat it.

Not all of them

Because we enjoy it?

We're refugees. We bring our own culture from a land far away. Don't be xenophobic. We promise we will not you or you.

Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps

We are officially celebrating community while respecting diversity.

Why is this such a difficult concept to grasp?

Those people know each other (either in real life or from the boards) for a long time. So, it is not surprising that you didn't understand some of the jokes.

Who says that private / clique jokes can not be made on a forum ? This is a community, not everyone needs to talk about cars all the time.

Is it really that big of a deal to you?

No like? No read then.

its a place for me to write kill stories...

so here's another one:

last time someone whined about a special forum on roadfly, i punched him in the chest, moved his heart aside, reach up and pulled his brain out so i can get the message directly to his brain... told him why the forum existed then put him all back together. i borrowed some duct tape from dr kewl to patch him up lickety split.

i forgot what i told him and at the last conepacking event he wasn't talking to me anymore... so sad...

PS.. this is all in jest so chill out...

Everyone - this thread is really getting close to being closed and deleted, so consider this a friendly warning.

Everyone has an opinion, but let's not get personal (or physical) with any comments or threats (real or in jest).

Thanks!

- Mike

Obviously that is not the case. You drive a Mazda, and that is not
precluding you from posting here...
