No Netspeak

Some time ago  I started an LJ community called no_netspeak .  The description was as follows :"This is a community for those over 40, who don't speak netspeak. You speak civilly to people, even when they disagree. We can discuss politics, arts ,movies, travel, sports, dining whatever you want. The only rules, for now, are words like snark, troll, lurker and n00bi are forbidden."

Because of my lack of marketing skills, it never took off.   Today, I'd like to try to revive it.   A place where those of us over forty (I'm 52) can remember What kind of a car Ann Southern was in My Mother the Car,  Saw Frost/Nixon with the original cast,  maybe even remember The Beatles on Ed Sullivan or watched with pride as Apollo 13 made it home.

So if you're over a certain age, or if you're not an you just want to see how another generation thinks, come join me.  All are welcome,  just remain civil.

By the way,  Ann Southern was a 1928 Porter.

I'm in.

P.S. You should x-post this to this addme21andover and addme_adult. I'm pretty sure there's an "add me 40+" group, too, but I'm too damned lazy to go find it.

I'm in too.

Since I don't know what the four words mean, I must qualify. I agree on civility. Whatever happened to speech class and debate where one was able to intelligently argue both sides?

I'm not sure I realized that Ann Southern was My Mother the Car. :)

I certainly remember the rest.

I checked it out. I haven't joined a community before but appears it is your blog and we comment. Is that how it goes?

Hopefully more people will join the discussion.

When I started this, I realized that I enjoyed talking to people who were my contemporaries. There was more civility. We realized that music predated Madonna.

Post whatever you'd like. Hopefully we can generate some nice discussions.

Oh, I didn't sign myself in. I think I might have commented but maybe it didn't go through.

I have to scoot but I'll do it when I return home.

Thanks for letting me know.
