The inactivity of this forum.
Thu Apr 02, 2015 11:06 pm by Burkman
It's depressing to see how inactive it has been recently. I mean, everybody is pretty much primarily posting in the never ending thread now and there's not enough people here to make this place really booming. We need to find some way to bring more people here before this place just fades into nothingness...

I know for a fact that a lot of boards out there are thriving because of how many people are there. We just need to get back into the game and pull people here. However, where we obtain these people might matter, because we don't to end up pulling in douches like those at Selkath.

I understand that people are busy these days, but it doesn't seem like they're rarely at their computer anymore. I know most of you are still dicking around with your computer. I don't know how we …

Ok, I dunno about you, but lying to kids for them to discover that you've been lying to them all their childhood about some fat dude giving away gifts. That's one thing I disagree with. When I grew up, I knew there was no Santa, my Mom said we had to play along like a game with the other kids, so I never spilled the beans. But some kids I remember were crying because it was like seeing your friend die. But why!?

Secondly, the whole he's watching and knows if you're good or bad. Is he some perv who watches kids pee, bathe and play in the yard! I mean, c'mon. More like Big Brother is watching. What is this.. I don

Third, the Elves, ok SLAVES man, they're slaves, just like the kids in China making toys for kids in North America. Santa doesn't pay his elves and they labour day in and day out. huh?

Last but not least SANTA. Take the N away and put it at the end, you get SATAN. DIE!

Nuff said, my rant is over.

Gosh, I hate lying to my stepkids, Frank only does it cuz their mother and grandparents encourage the lie of Santa Claus and if he breaks it to them now, it's gonna wreak havoc. Seriously, you've never seen my step daughter throw a hyper tantrum. Woah..

Let it be known tho that I know the story of St-Nicholas and all its variants in the different cultures and that the spirit of the man living on is a cute one. Spirit is different than human being who has the ability to drop into chimneys, even if he's fate, even if you ahve no chimney, and give gifts all between midnight and 5 am, accross the world. Fat chance. Hahaha, no punn intended.

Bon, j'ai terminé!

I disagree... it's how kids build on imagination and reasoning with it. And it's worked for generations... why fix what's not broke.

I remember when i found out there was no santa. I felt crushed. But i also remember the feelings i had when i thought he did exist and i would not trade that for anythin in the world. My kids believe in santa and i wont dissuade em for as long as i can lol.

I dont consider it lying either.

But hey if thats what you think then all cool. At least you dont try to ruin it for others kids. Very nice of yall.

I didn't particularly mind when I found out santa didn't exist. But still, I wouldn't tell my kids there's a santa.

"like you have to worry about that"

Fuck you, too.

On that, I still can't get why they allowed Coca-Cola to have so much red in its' ads and logo during the better part of the Cold War...
I know Pepsi picked the blue to counter just that. Round the 60-70s they had an ad saying their product was a drink of freedom and democracy or something...

Well yeah you cry. And it hurts for awhile but kids will get over it. Like Callin said, I wouldn't trade all the magical feelings of Christmas I felt for, already at a young age, seeing Christmas as something realistic.

If people felt like being told ruined their childhood then we probably wouldn't even have Santa right now. Feel the magic while you can and THEN you can go to the real world

Santo sold himself to Coca-Cola? HAHAHAH SUCKAH


But you know, the thing with Santa is that it's imposed by society so much on ALL kids.

Other religions don't have Santa. Hey even other Christians don't. Polish tradition is the story of Babuszka (pronounced bah-boo-shka) who turned Mary away so she could continue cleaning her home. But then she felt bad. So she travelled and gave gifts to all babies to be sure Jesus got a gift. And continued so every year. We are told the story Babuszka as kids and told the Santa reflects that and we celebrate in her spirit by giving each other gifts.

That does NOT take away any magic or imagination. It's only being truthful and I am glad to have been raised this way. When was old enough to understand other kids were being told by their parents Santa was real, I had more respect for my mom and trusted her more.

Maybe it's because we're Polish, but hey. Story of Babuszka and her broom is also one of several stories about of an old woman and a broom, changed to be one of a woman flying on a broom. Sound familiar? ;)

I believe in Belsnickel...

On a more serious note... if you don't like the idea of Santa fine? Telling kids about Santa only for them to find out on their own that he's not real... is NOT detrimental to their health... deceiving... or any other form of evil as you say it is.

When I was a kid, I saw a man named Santos in my house putting crudely wrapped boxes under my tree.

Yeah we should. Whats worse is that Christmas is MARKETED TO CHILDREN! Kids go to sit on Santa's lap, Christmas trees are decorated with shiny flashing lights, and Santa appeals to kids by eating cookies. It's appalling and concerning at the same time.
