I don't know how many of you chit-chatters are aware of what happened to shebby's thread about her job at an FLGS. It started out great and turned HORRIBLE!!! She was insulted, demoralized, demeaned, and offended by other geeks!!!

We need to rally round our shebby and support her.

Please post your love and appreciation for one of our loyal bgg chit-chatters here!!!

If you can stomach it, here is the thread I'm talking about.

No pity--lots of love and support!!

Thanks!!

You are a wonderful person and great contributer here on BGG. Your thread was very well written, interesting, provocative, and with the right amount of humor thrown in. I even added a couple of posts early on.

I am very sorry for the rude jerks who kept beating you until you fell, and then others who started kicking you when you were down.

You were right to stop posting to the thread. And, IMO, you didn't have to apologize for ANYTHING!!

Yeah, Shebby!!

Hey shebby, we're behind you and we're here for you. We love you, in a platonic way that is and quite unlike this:

I already gave my support in the original thread. When are you people going to stop harassing me?

For the record. Shebby is awesome. BTW, her S.O. drives a freaking tank-thingy! Don't piss her off. She will blow your planet up!

Shebby, as one FLGS employee to another I can relate to a bunch of the things you initially started the thread about (not all of course). If it makes you feel any better, yesterday I had an old lady tell me she knew the person who developed "Go."

BGG is often said to be one of the most civil little corners of the internet, and based on what else I have seen, I think that might not be completely untrue. Nevertheless, here too stupidity runs amok at a regular basis. Strangely, chit chat may be one of the most civil and friendly parts of BGG.
It's probably better to stay silent, to not talk too much about your opinions, especially if your opinions may clash with those of the brainless hordes. And if you can't stay low, you'll need a thick skin. You'll get some 'support' from some of your 'friends' when you're under attack, but don't think too much of it. For most of your 'friends' support means no more than a simple statement in a public forum.
Friends without the quote marks, you can only find in the real world. If you're looking for sympathetic people on the internet, even at BGG, prepare to be disappointed. Although chit chat sometimes comes very close to being an exception to that general rule.

Oh, and Shebby, don't let the idiots get you down. Your posts are appreciated by many users.

For reference, I've locked the other thread, which fizzled out a couple weeks ago, to prevent it from potentially getting resurrected and flaring up again.

You know, after reading a thread in which "boobs" appeared 80 times, I can only think about onetwo things when you say Shebby needs support.

("Your charms. Your charm! In the middle.")


Yes, of course I counted: perl -e 'foreach (1..6) { system "wget -O - http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/343583/page/$_"; }' | perl -pe 's/[^a-zA-Z]/\n/g' | fgrep -i boob | wc -l

Wow, the last time I visited that thread, mostly it was still very positive and upbeat, with only a few unfriendlies. I thought her post was great an awesome and quite on the mark and reminded me so much of some jobs I've been in regarding customer support.

Hang in there, lady and sorry the unfriendlies pounded on you.

I'm going to change my name now for you.

wow, shebby that thread makes me sick.

I thought your original post was a good read, I enjoyed it.

Look at this Geeklist: Rants from a Game Store Employee It made many of the same points and didn't get that nasty reaction at all.

I guess you should never mention boobs if you have them.
