Thanks for the bump girls! I posted it over there even though it's a bit messy in that thread. What can I say though, I love that ignore function so it don't bother me none if it don't bother you!
Aug 17 2010, 02:26 AM
hey, what happened to all the threads in LTAS? there are only 3 in there right now! i'm having a slight issue and was hoping to chat about it with some of you smart and wonderful ladies. anybody?
Aug 17 2010, 04:17 AM
I went ahead & bumped the gen sex thread & the anal thread just for kicks.
When threads have been inactive for more than thirty days, they drop off the main page of a forum. To find them, go into the forum & scroll to the box on the bottom of the page. There will be four individual boxes, Order: Last Post, Z-A, From 30 Days, etc. Select From 30 Days & a drop down window will open giving you the option of how far you'd like to go back in the display. Select Show All, hit go & you'll see all of the threads in a given forum.

thanks, ap i was actually just coming back here to say that never mind, i'd figured out how to find what i was looking for. i fear that i just wrote a novella, however... oh well.

Does anyone happen to have a link to a study showing the percentage of women vs men who are sexually abused? I'm having a frustrating discussion with a know-it-all young man.
I'm not too lazy to look myself, I just have dial up and am sad at finding things on the internets. Thanks!
Aug 20 2010, 05:57 PM
Dunno if this helps, from wiki: In North America, for example, approximately 15% to 25% of women and 5% to 15% of men were sexually abused when they were children.
Where the ever-living backwater boonie hell do you live that you're still on dial-up, Pepper?
Aug 20 2010, 06:13 PM
It's so sad, I could just freaking CRY! I live in one of the only hold-outs to DS, no freaking kidding! And get this, I can't even get that wireless cellphone related stick because my house is Too Close to the tower! We miss the signal due to some sort of umbrella effect, AARRGGG!!! and a satalite is $400 bucks to install. And no cable internet out here at all. WAH!
It's a major factor in wanting to move, let me tell you. Can I really give up teh fenced in backyard and being 4 blocks from the beach because I want a faster internet connection though? I'm more than a little tempted...
Aug 20 2010, 06:44 PM
I CRY FOR YOU! ((((((Pepper & no cable internet)))))
I would lose my shit. Seriously. LOSE. MY. SHIT. Between work & my day to day, I'd be fubar without the speed of cable.
Aug 20 2010, 07:00 PM
It's fucking up my attempts to have a website and maybe get my crafty shit online too, every little thing takes an hour. Never mind the mental malady of being stuck in the boons with barely any outside adult contact beyond my lame dead slow internet connection. I don't know how I'm not losing my shit, honestly. Thanks for the sympathy, it really is crap.
Aug 20 2010, 07:01 PM
Oh, and all of little man's webkinz have died too. He blames me.
Aug 20 2010, 07:30 PM
Oh, trust me, I can empathize completely with the intarwebs being a connection to the outside world. I have almost nothing in common with the people here in my little corner of the sticks & don't do much socializing, which is really hard for me. Honestly, I don't even really much like the few people here that I consider myself friendly with. It's depressing. Seriously, if I couldn't reach out & poke my friends back home & the Bgirls online? Shit would have gotten drastic by now.
Aug 20 2010, 08:00 PM
It's amazing who you'll make friends with when no one else is around to choose from. Not that they aren't lovely people in their own right but I've got a group of friends with whom I share next to nothing aside from same aged children. In "real life" we wouldn't even be acquaintances, these women and I. But I guess this is my new real life. Until I move back to civilization anyhow.
Aug 25 2010, 06:17 PM
I don't know where to put this, I only know that it;s effing fabulous and must be shared with you. http://www.neatorama.com/2007/09/03/clowns-kicked-kkk-asses/
Aug 29 2010, 11:22 AM
thanks for the link pepper that was hilarious. You could always repost it in the white privledge thread if it is still around these parts. If I had my shit together I would post a link, but alas. my shit is not together. Need more coffee.
Aug 29 2010, 08:13 PM
I bumped the white privilege thread just in case.
Aug 30 2010, 05:13 PM
Oops, I just stuck it in the news thread. I don't know where anything is anymore. Kind of like being at home actually, can't find a thing in here either
Sep 12 2010, 08:06 AM
Would anyone be interested in a thread about aging? Both personal observations about our changing bodies and minds, and societal views of it?
Choosing to use products vs not using them - or not being able to afford them and using homemade stuff. Teenagehood versus Adulthood and Senior years, different types of ageism, sagging, looking at our grandparents, or our kids.
Just a clearing house for different thoughts and feelings and practical body/mind tips about it.
Sep 12 2010, 03:17 PM
Hi suko! I think we've used the Vintage Bustie thread
to talk about aging issues. I bumped up the thread for you.
Hope this helps!
Sep 12 2010, 04:08 PM
Thanks for bumping that one!
Sep 22 2010, 07:10 AM
Where is the option to delete an account? I've looked and looked but no luck. It's got to be here somewhere though, doesn't it?
Sep 22 2010, 09:56 AM
Nope. The only people that can delete an acct are TPTB. They deactivate the account, but any posts you've made will remain.
Sep 22 2010, 09:58 AM
I think you would have to contact admin/mod. Keep in mind you would lose all control of your old posts, you won't be able to delete any of them in the future if privacy is an issue.
You're not going anywhere are you Pepper?
Sep 22 2010, 10:43 AM
But, you can't edit or delete old posts NOW.
I'm noticing this with a few online forums, there isn't a way to delete your own account at ALL. Seems very odd to me that.
And yes, I am doing a bit of cyberspace clean up right now. I spend too much time online so along with cancelling my internet connection at home I'm thinking about deleting a few accounts. I'd at least like the option to do so myself which seems reasonable to me but apparently I'm wrong about that
Oh, and I did send a message to the modsquad but I'm under the impression that we don't actually have an active admin here to do such a thing.
Sep 22 2010, 11:12 AM
I'm surprised to learn that about old posts, I didn't realize there was a time window.
Sep 22 2010, 12:00 PM
Pre-Great Bustie Exodus (We are coming up on a year soon!), you could edit as far back as you liked. Post-GBE, first it recorded when you edited, then you couldn't edit at all, then you had ten minutes to edit, now you have a forty-eight hour window. They giveth, they taketh away.
And somebody will eventually get back to you, Pepper. It took some time, but Zora, Lovemypugs, & Musicfit all managed to get their memberships deactivated by TPTB. But your Bustie carbon footprint shall remain evermore. Mwahahahahaha!
Sep 22 2010, 12:55 PM
Aural, your way of putting things always makes me laugh out loud
Sep 22 2010, 07:29 PM
It will be sad to see you leave, Pepper.
Oct 10 2010, 01:27 PM
Agreed. It WILL be sad to see pepper leave.
Hey guys, just curious. What's up with the "ducks, taliban, everything" thread? I guess I don't get it.
Oct 10 2010, 02:32 PM
Toto is an old, old Bustie. Basically, he's the only Bustie that has his own thread where he posts a lot of old jokes/hoary anecdotes & such; back in the day it was basically him & Venetia playing around. He left the Lounge for a long time, but has since returned. We had a bit of drama, but whatevs. He keeps to himself for the most part.
Oct 10 2010, 02:36 PM
M'kay. Thanks for clearing it up..it was the keeping to himself/ non-community oriented thing I mostly didn't get.
Oct 10 2010, 02:45 PM
Yeah, that non-community oriented thing was kinda part of the dust up & shit got kinda hectic for a minute there. He views his thread as an 'anything goes, dowhatchalike' Lounge escape hatch of sorts. Whatever. Long as he keeps his dick out my Post Toasties, we cool.
Oct 15 2010, 04:52 PM
Pepper, she is no more.
ETA: Perhaps I spoke to soon, it appears she rejoined Saturday evening.
Dec 2 2010, 09:05 AM
Ugh. "New" Pepper sucks.
So, it's been a year since the GBE? How's everybody doin'?
Dec 2 2010, 12:53 PM
Well! But missing the chatter
Dec 2 2010, 02:20 PM
I miss Kvetch Up but I've never been as active in the cyber-bunker community. But I am always happy to see Busties on FB and to dash in here.
Dec 6 2010, 01:15 PM
I miss the okayer's thread.
Dec 10 2010, 07:32 PM
I wasn't ever much of a Kvetchie or an Okayer, there was just too much stuff for me to remember! But I do miss everything else. Back in the day it used to take a couple of hours sometimes to keep up with all of the action.
There was a little old troll talk today on FB. It put me in mind of some trolls of yore. Psychicfemme. Lunatic, RaHoWa mongering, white-buddy-throat-slitting Hummingbird. Numbnuts & his love of CBT. Funk. Ah, the trolls we have known.
Dec 28 2010, 10:05 AM
am I wrong or was there at one point a resolutions thread? I am starting to think about the goals I want to accomplish this year. at the top of my list is not punching people I work with in the neck even thought they often deserve it.
Dec 28 2010, 10:08 AM
Feb 14 2011, 09:24 AM
oh, good, someone new to block
Feb 19 2011, 09:39 PM
I am redlotuspetal68. I love BUST mag, and I buy it as often as I can. I love the girl community, that you don't censor women by allowing every perspective, and I am thrilled to post here.
Anyone ever done a Spicy Party? I haven't, so I would be interested in learning more about it.
Apr 21 2011, 06:33 AM
I used to be a regular around here (I was an avid Okayer), but I haven't been around in quite some time.
The Lounge system seems different. I can't figure out how to see all the threads. When I click on, say, Media Whores, it only shows a few of them. I have to assume that there are many more threads than what is shown.
Also, would there happen to be a thread about substance abuse issues? I know there used to be one about how great drinking and drugs were (heh. I used to dig that one), but is there one for those of us who had to give it up?
Thanks guys! I look forward to reconnecting with my old Bustie pals, and getting to know some new ones!
Apr 21 2011, 07:24 AM
Hey PK! I replied to you in Okay, but about the threads you see- when you're in a board (Media Whores, Friends & Family, etc.) if you go down to the bottom, there's a drop-down menu that says "From: 30 Days"- click that and hit "Show All". Then you can see everything.
