Dude, I've seen dead forums. I was on Usenet when it died, and tried to keep a third-string board going beyond its natural life there.* Believe me, this forum isn't dead yet - not by a long way.

Now, whether the readership of Ma3 is sustained by a steady flow of people discovering a genuinely sexy not-actually-porny comic, replacing those who want to argue about the characters, is a whole other question.

Oh goodness mine. I can't believe it. You want it! You actually want it! You want me to say it!

Okay, dearie. Here goes, for all the pet salesmen out there.

*ahem*

This forum's not on 'is way! 'E's not pinin'! 'E's not stunned! 'E's passed on! This forum is no more! He has ceased to be! 'E's expired and gone to meet 'is maker!

'E's a stiff! Bereft of life, 'e rests in peace! 'E's not sleeping! 'E's deceased! If you hadn't nailed 'im to the site 'e'd be pushing up the daisies!

'Is metabolic processes are now 'istory! 'E's stone dead! 'E's off the twig!

'E's kicked the bucket, 'e's shuffled off 'is mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisible!!

THIS... IS AN EX-FORUM!!!

*whew*

Aah, that was exhilarating.

Ah the parrot sketch... one of the best.
I love monty python.
I guess then this forum is a norwegian blue with beautiful plumage? :D

In England, they like it so much they even made a statue to the glory of the ex-parrot...

I would have chosen a giant Hungarian phrasebook. :p

Not a Lumberjack?
Pointless arguing is one of the three pillars upon which the Internet is built. The other two are of course cat pictures and porn.

Is there anyone besides me who is finding the characters less attractive than they once were?

I am guessing probably not since anyone posting here would likely be an unmitigated fan but I am not seeing much good sides to the personalities being shown here.
Everyone an unmitigated fan?? Man, have you seen the Dangerously Chloe forum lately? It feels like almost everyone there hates the comic...

the literally demonic characters in Dangerouously Chloe
Is that an especially British spelling? :P

Anyway, concerning this forum being "dead", not be a long shot. There might have been a time when many threads hit the 100 post mark (and of course there's the famous "Gary got laid" thread that exceeded 50 pages), but that's just twice of what it's clocking now.

If you want dead, then it's the "General Discussion" forum, the original forum community. It now has at best a few posts per day, and maybe half a dozen of reasonably regular posters... You should have seen it back in 2008-2009. I fondly remember the three days where I got 130, 120, 70 posts... :YMDAYDREAM:
