borrowing a cup of happy  
The TWoP Buffy boards mostly bore me. I've only ever gone for the non-episodic threads, because I can rarely stand to hear people talking about the show in that kind of forum. And after the mods killed the badfic thread (under the most annoying possible circumstances) I got disgusted and stopped lurking as much. Half the time the TWoP moderators have the amusing knack of cutting short budding idiocy; the other half they just seem to bitchslap whoever's handy for the pure sake of killing the joy. These days I just go to see what's on the fanfic thread, but it's not getting the traffic it used to.

But today I was looking through a thread on people's favorite things about the show. (Though in fact, I actually started reading here and worked back.) It cheered me up rather a lot. People giddy with sharing the joy, not a whole lot of negativity. Nice change of pace.

I'm so soul-suckingly bored. I've gotten into a terrible habit of sitting on my couch with my laptop, with the TV in line of sight, and just dicking around. It's hard to type from a reclining position except in short, painful bursts, which makes it the perfect slump for writing posts and comments but not working on stories.

ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

Yeah, whatever.

It's the latter half I have noticed. I don't hang around there much anymore either ... don't have the time really, but it makes me feel bad for people when the mods are unaccountably knocking them down. And often it's for trivialities where the mods themselves (or the show reviewers) have been far nastier in their own comments on the subject.
