The people here are just wacky. Wacky and dedicated to keeping this place alive. There are no normal threads here. Nobody talks things through in a reasonable way. Threads about the most humdrum or predictable topics turn out strange. There are characters. There are intrigues.
I've always put it down to us being interested in Bowie. Something inside of us all related to his creating a persona to hide his real self. Related to seeing everything upside down and inside out. That's why the people here are madmen, and I'm content your all the same as me.
I once said to someone recently, "I've never seen a messageboard survive for even weeks after the parent site died. If boards were plants then TW is the cactus. It just survives."
That person then told me that TW is indeed like a cactus. It's full of pricks.
How much sweaty Travolta can you take?
