If you think TWWS would just disappear because there's no reason to discuss MDC, I'm not sure you've been reading along.
Obviously anyone can start a board for any reason they want. I'm one of those "200 of you" who signed up at TWWS so I could see what all the hubbub was about. Curiosity and the cat and all. You all seem like pretty cool ladies. You guys cuss a lot. And y'all are pretty crude. But you are also funny. 10 years ago, when I was at my snarkalicious prime, I would have happily jumped right in. These days I just don't have the time or energy to even consider putting forth the effort it would take to get to know an entire new community and the meanings of the inside jokes and TWWS vocabulary, but I understand those who do. Bacon and Patrick Swayze are two of my most favorite things on Earth. But I'm still not sure if you guys are intending the Swayze thing as a compliment to him or if you are making fun of him...which automatically makes me too uncool to be a Troll.
Regarding the above statement, I just would like to point out that although TWWS has 18 forums, MDC Therapy is your second most active one...with over 102,000 posts. Third place is your Repository of Awesomeness with almost 39,000 posts. The next most active forum is ButtHurt Island, with only 19,500ish posts. So as much as I understand and appreciate your stance that you guys are actual friends who have relationships that go above and beyond the internet, it is not an unfair statement to say that a large portion of your site is dedicated to snarking on MDC. A mutual dislike of MDC is one of the main the foundations of your site. You can see how that might be off-putting to members of MDC who don't fit into the "Careless UCers, Radical anti-doctor, Vaccines cause the Autism Cooties" category. No?
Anyway, live and let live. Snark and let snark.
