"Canucks Corner Classic" forum for Oldschool Posters

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

I think you are missing the point, when I said the above I was referencing the segregation policies in the american south, pre civil rights era where most public facilities were divided into white and colored use.

People would say the same things you are saying, there is nothing wrong with colored people (centralites) I love colored people, some of my best friends are colored
I just want a place where good white people can get together, ride a bus, swim in a swimming pool. send their children to school etc etc. It sounded reasonable but it was evil shit.

Segregating this board is exactly the same thing, the implication is obvious enough I am shocked that you cant see the similarities, farhan "the token brown guy..."

you say you don't have a us / them mentality. I am sorry but you do have one, its just not as negative as some. By calling for a classic corner thread you are declaring that there is a fundamental difference between the two groups when there should be none. Common sense should dictate that no group online has the market on stupidity or brilliance.

on that other thread "where are the old posters?" (another slap in the face thread) there is actually an argument going on that the quality of posts is different than before the Great Migration (another hate mongering term.) How laughable, if it were not arrogant in the extreme to think that original corner posters are somehow smarter, gifted or better posters than post migration posters. Does it really need to be said that everyone here is just basically a Canucks fan and not much more than that? No one to my knowledge is getting there posts into the New England Journal Of Medicine.
ultimately the idea that there should be a place for old time corner posters is so close to outright racism as to be repugnant and ought to quashed by the mods and Brian if they believe the things they have been saying...

Man, I hope that's not a reference to me in that other thread. I said over and over either posting style is legit,valid, whatever, only that there seem to be two styles, slower/faster. Just a way of looking at the conflict is all, trying to get people to understand each other... Why can't we all just get along? :roll:

Lolllllll....

Chill out bro.

I admit that my post may have been idiotic and I apologize. No need to go all Martin Luther King on me, haha.

I greatly look forward to re-acquainting myself with the Centralites and anyone on here for that matter.

I wasnt intending to takes sides in that debate, or condemn what anyone said there, I am just pointing out that whatever the style of ones post, it ought to be welcome as long as its by a member in good standing. long,short, well written or struggling with the basics of the English Language.
your opinion that you laid out is reasonable enough as a reason why some people are posting less than before and I will consider it in the future as I try to contribute as best I can. :)

He was a funny mother fucker. The best forum poster I knew in nearly 20 years of playing on-line. I'd come back every day to see what shenanigans creeper was up to. I was rarely let down. With nobody able to step into creepers shoes, in terms of quality humorous content, it’s got pretty stale and boring.

Hence, I hardly post anymore. :hmmm:


C'mon Ohdee you know as well as I do that El Creepo would call you a Molly for that post! :roll:

Suck it up buttercup, life goes on....

Is there a reason that this thread should continue?

I'm going to head downstairs and lock it up shortly...
