I've been pondering the mysterious identity of the owner. I think it may be a hedge fund, or possibly a member of the Eagles. I shudder to think that it may be Jonathan Todd. If I had my druthers, it would be Nepotista or Lesley Thode.

You were right, Viv! The forum is a-hoppin'!

She and I shared a love of All Things H.W. Fowler. I think what cemented our friendship in those days was an interest in the syntactical and dictional grammars of Henry Sweet, Otto Jespersen, and George Curme, and following that lexicographical progression all the way to the transformational-generative grammars of Chomsky and Randolph Quirk.

God bless her, that little dickens!

Jonathan Todd? lol
If he's the proverbial man behind the curtain, call Kansas because I'm heading home.

Is that the same lovely Lesley (username "Les") who made the absolutely beautiful yet apparently now defunct website "In His Own Words" (or something like that) about Lindsey?

My bet says that Jonathon Todd and Mick Fleetwood were the same person.

The only thing contributing to the decline of this site are the a-hole personalities of certain people on this thread, who have always been super critical of band members in the beginning, but now with recent developments within the band and LB, nastiness has turned into hate. I unfortunately became a part of it in a few posts, but needless to say nobody on here has anything nice to say anymore. I still love the music and the people involved with it despite what has been happening. I still listen to the music and I would still support them in their live endeavors. They are in their later years of life and I'm not going to waste an opportunity to sit behind a screen and bemoan everyone and everything about this band, and the people on this forum who are beyond bitter and resentful, despite their self-righteous reasons and beliefs as to why they are right over everyone else on here.

Some people on here really need to get a life, and I visit this board less frequently now because of the lack of civility brought forth by the members.

Even those I don't much like.

Me too!

As much as we all bitch about this and that, I can only think of three people that I can't stand. Okay, four.

The rest of you are okay in my book...except those $tevie lovers!

Absolute truth spoken right here! ^^^^
I've literally logged a handful of times in the last few months and it's all hate and disrespect towards other members. If anything, it's increased since the band split. Number one reason that so many have left this site.
