Warmer, more going on, interesting people, cheaper and easier to get to. With so much in favour of Hell, why go to Heaven?

Re: Drabblecast 372 - Delicate Parts

Well, that should put paid to any allegations about Drabblecast being too grown up and mature these days. A great laugh. I was cackling all the way through.

Now... Any new bowel movement stories in the... Umm... Pipeline?

Re: Drabblecast 371 - Old Dead Futures

Right. Now that I have a thread to comment in... I really enjoyed this story. I was never quite sure where it was going until it got there. I wonder what governments would really do if they found a way to change the future. And I liked that the men from (presumably) the government didn't seem to rea...

Give the mods some love

Since ASID just pointed out to me that, "Thankless tasks are thankless," I thought it might be an idea to let all the mods, admins, editors, and everyone else at Drabblecast know you appreciate them. Give them a kiss, or at least a pat on the back, for all the work they do. Keep up the good work, Gu...

Re: What's up with the forum?

Sorry about that. I've been on, and may go back to, sabbatical. All the other mods have been thin on the ground for months. (Thankless jobs are thank less :) ). I just finished nuking the spam(mers). As for episode comment threads -- you or just about anyone can start one. Worst case, some mod come...

What's up with the forum?

OK, I've been away for a few weeks, but things are looking a bit ropey here abouts at the moment. No new episode comments threads appear to have gone up for a while, and there are spam posts all over the forum. Is everything OK here?

Re: "How long are we talking?" [Category: First Time Posting]

Ah, I was worried that this concept might not be fresh, as it is a pretty obvious reflection of the 100 word limit. When I first thought about doing one of these the limit was this imposing thing, I got the impression of finality, and this was the natural result. I have heard the story "So you're g...
