Should have seen my long distance bills for ringing up other fans pre internet chats and crippled fingers from writing letters...
Ah the good old days pre internet fan friends

Don't worry, when we voted on it that was a minority position.

Indeed! Since neither BC nor Valentine are coming to Brum, I don't know why they're getting so steamed up about this.

If we were to limit these gatherings to forum regulars only, you wouldn't get many peopel coming! But in any case, since they take place in PUBLIC houses, there's no way in practice you can limit them to just forum members only.

That is the weirdest thing about it. They are not coming yet they want to control who else comes. I actually posted about the Brum meet on a B7 email list and Valentine had the nerve to reply effectively urging people not to come. That is really out of order given we have always said these are open to others and that she is not coming herself.

I thought I was after reading this post:

Thanks to train fares going up - again I may not now be attending this event Crying Smiley unless a miracle occurs financially!!!


I missed the later one.

It still doesn't negate my main point that we have always said on here, including in a poll run by Valentine, that we don't mind others coming, so it is more than a bit off her going round trying to discourage others coming. And then she has the nerve to accuse me of causing a split. I actually now hope she doesn't come because if she does me and her are likely to have a blazing row over this because I feel she has behaved really out of order.

Careful Steve seems this is only going to cause more agro in the forum
Your post is a personal attack on Valentine and therefore flaming which
is a TOS violation...Use the PM system
These meets are supposed to be friendly not confrontational.
If ever I am lucky enough to get back into good health would love to
meet and greet everyone not slap them upside the head...
I have seen fan feuds in the states,not a pretty sight.
Everyone in their own little corner whilst a small minority made us
feel totally uncomfortable

No, it is not flaming. I am attacking what she has done, not her in person. I believe she has behaved out of order in this and it is perfectly legitimiate to say so.

I do hope there can be a peaceful solution to all of this.
I think it is important for fans to interact with one another.
A fan on Horizon and Paul Darrow forum was lamenting over
the diminishing number of Conventions for fans to meet up at.
It is the same here in the states...
The Philly Sci-fi Society has been around for ages joined by
The Prydonians of Prynceton twice a month in University City
W. Philly.
You name the fandom and it is represented in this grouping
U.S. & U.K.

I don't expect you and Valentine will hold hands and sing Cumbaya
together anytime soon but some peaceful solution is required...

No Smiley "Steve" -I didn't urge folks not to come I just pointed out it was supposed to be for OUR FORUM MEMBERS!!! This is what I actually posted and nowhere do I tell people to stay away - just tell them that these are for OUR member's otherise why did we call them FORUM MEETINGS, in the first place??

Hi there,

This is NOT actually a Beer & Blake's 7 drink-up meeting folks.

IT is a SIMON & LOUSIE "B7" FORUM get-together for folks who post/frequent that Forum.

Telling people from other places means, a split gathering and, far too many folks for the space available. This is the latest of several gatherings for those on the "S&L" Forum and, so, it could prove awkward for those who aren't familiar with the "regulars" who've attended several of these already and, through posting on "S&L" Forum for over three years, etc, WHO know each other's weird and, wonderful ways.

NO disrespect to fellow "B7" Fans who are not on "S&L's" Forum but, with "SteveR" inviting other people from outside our Forum. This has already caused splits within our Forum as a result.


And, I will be at BOTH events!!!

ROW?? I love a good row I'm used to having them daily with a certain relative.

Let's just enjoy ourselves in "BRUM" - shall we "Steve"
