Well, dear friends, hello and welcome to our "Eric is nothing but a big fat Belgian bastard" contest. I read this on the EIEB message board :
I have a problem. I want to make a small protestation about something Eric wrote recently - and Madeleine's living room would
appear to be the best place to do it, it having a section for this kind of thing. HOWever, I don't want to start things off by making
a b###hy comment - so could someone else write something nice there first? Maybe you could Madeleine cos I don't even know
how to use that kind of forum thing. Thanks, that'll be all.
Then, after Elise asked for more clarification, Sarah added :
Maybe I'm alone here, but since when was the word "b i t c h" a swear word? What about if my dog Jimmy was female and this
message board was about her? It would be indecipherable that's what. And it'd be pretty devoid of messages too.
Apparently, Mr Idle used the word "bitch" as a swear word somewhere and Sarah didn't like it, but finds it hard to express her feelings (she can do wonders with a computer, but suddenly feels helpless facing this little forum... hmmm...)
Well, I'm not going to explain *Sarah* (!) how the forums work, but some nice welcoming words would seem appropriate, yes.
Dear Idle people, don't be too embarrassed with this maybe unusual forum. Being critical is not being unkind, saying what you think is no insult. Negativity is just the dark background on which love radiates better. Remember you are fans of the "sixth nicest Python", and acknowledge this is something to be proud of. Being unilaterally and insipidly nice is what females and stars both learn. This is not what Monty Python was all about. This is not was feminism was all about. I'm not telling anybody what to do, and if no posts appear on this forum, it's all right by me. It just will remain here as another possibility of freedom in a consensual world.
Because, of course, the Eric Idle Grovelling Site is not meant for grovelling.
Love to everyone.
