So BCHostKim knew about the "planned ambush?"

So what do you think about this, faithful readers? Why would a host know about these things? Is she a part of the Hoff board? If not, who "tipped" her? Perhaps the Hoff's "troll" that they're trying to sniff out and oust?

And what did the host do about it? What did BBC do about it? Is she even referring to the "ambush" I think she is?

And does anyone else see this post as totally inflammatory and inappropriate?

Ladies -
While I do understand and sympathize with the points made, I think we can all agree that the rules are here for a reason. I - for one - do not get enjoyment out of staying up late to babysit people on an internet BB who should know better. (Meaning the planned ambush and yes, I knew about it in advance.) I truly enjoy being here - in general - and volunteered myself (to attempt) to be an ambassador of goodwill here. Most days I wouldn't change anything here but when it comes to the point where several groups plan to ambush each other on the board, it's gone too far.

That being said... the mods had a LOT of info in order to make their decisions. While I'd love to see it 100% definitive in who gets banned, who doesn't - it'll never happen. They are human and have to make judgement calls.

Honestly - I don't blame them for banning first and asking questions later. There was a lot of crap that went down here and way more people were involved than were banned. The mods did not consider any plotting, etc. that happened off the boards - only what happened here and that was an ugly mess.

I don't believe there are favorites. Either you've been a PITA to the mods or not. Let's face it. There were HUNDREDS of posts to wade through on the latest fiasco and if I were them I would have been tempted to just ban everyone instead of wade through it all. It was a complete mess. Trying to figure out who's on who's side and who is part of the plan was a nightmare for me and I'm used to posting here. Can you imagine the cluster the mods had to try to figure out?
I miss a lot of the posters who I assume have been temporarily banned. Maybe some may never return but I think we can all agree that something had to be done. I'm sorry to see that some innocent people were caught it the crossfire. That is exactly what we hope to avoid. I guess one or both groups were successful in their attempts to get others banned from the boards....maybe it wasn't the right people, but I guess you can see that when something like this happens, the end result isn't always shiny and bright.

I hate seeing the ugliness that comes out on this board. The other boards apparently breed hatred for certain members and it creeps into the posts here. It's a shame that the same ugliness so many don't want to teach their kids comes here to rear it's ugly head. We all have a dark side. I just don't want to meet all of them (the dark sides)!

I hope we can all move on now.

that is so sad that she knew about it. I hope they take away her host title over this. Disgusting.

Anonymous said...

so, wait. someone emails her a heads up, she notifies community mods so that they'll be watching and she should lose her host title? yeah, that makes sense.

Ranting said...

I can't tell if she notified community or not from her post. Hope she did.

Still think her post is generally inappropriate.

I thought it completely inappropriate when I read it, but I gotta ask - what ambush? Help me out here.

Anonymous said...

If she notified them, why did the thread stay up for over 12 hrs? I'm sure she just sat on the info.

Anonymous said...

If the mods were notified as implied by the 2nd anon post, then why wasn't the thread deleted UNTIL the next day?

Maybe it's because the mods weren't really notified? That makes more sense to me.

In all seriousness why do you still care about this. I don't think she knew about it she was told about it later. She was filled in on all of the details.

She along with Rebecca know who the Ranters are with their screen names and real names along with their photos.

But seriously Ranters this was a month ago time for some new material. Go stalk someone else like greenbeansgo or some other attention whore. Surely you can have fun with that.

Toodles.

LOL! It was a month ago and yet until today, had been brought up on the bargain board EVERY DAY since by one of you. Take your own fucking advice.

OOOOHHH, Rebecca and Kim know our names. Big fucking deal. I'm shaking in my ranter boots. You keep threatening us with our photos, but yet we're called the crazy ones. BTW, we know who you are too, but really we don't give a shit. I think it's great that sooo many people now are aware of the truth. It's more than great. It's hilarious. You bitches are getting called out on your own hypocritical actions. Fanfuckingtastic. Oh, and the attention whores are banned. No fun now. Bwahahaha..

Toodles fucktards!

Hey BCHostKim, was Hope able to get in touch with you? I know she was desperately trying to contact you. Must have been important;)

I have zero respect for any of our hosts or Mods on the Bargain Board. They let threads completely BASHING someone go for OVER A DAY despite MANY reports of personal attacks. There is definite favoritism - the Hofftards get away with any shit they want and others too.
It wouldn't surprise me if Kim knew in advance and let it happen. It also doesn't surprise me that there are people who didn't get banned and should of are still posting. I lurk for deals but honestly, the board and many posters make me sick. It's going to get much worse when the idiots come back.

Thanks for keeping it off the bargain board. I wish everyone would keep the drama among their own little group.

Well, I tried to make it easy for you by bolding the sentence where she says she knew it in advance AND putting it in red. But I guess even that wasn't enough.

Kim had a tip that something was going to happen, but she didn't know what! What was she supposed to do?? Then she went to sleep before any of it started.
People need to learn that HOSTS like Kim can't really do anything. They aren't paid, and have no thread locking or deleting powers.

MODS are the ones who decide those things and have the power.


*toodles* back at ya Charlie.

dededeeee said...

Summary for ya:
Charlie (PBS) pulled some lame shit and posted a bunch or paRanter private info on the bargain board. Then tried to act all innocent. Most of the Hoffies missed that thread and are all, "save our dear Charlie" without knowing she is guilty as hell and not someone I'd trust with personal info!

Plus she was doing most of the stalking of Steff. It is beyond me why anyone would read this and trust her. Not surprised she got the boot from the Hoff board. Funny as hell though!

Tha paRanters also posted personal info, you dont see them whining about being banned, do ya?

Why won't we let it go?? Cause its funny shit to see the truth come out about Charlie. Who, by the way, has been back on the bargain board under a new name or two.

Charlie - in all serious, take your meds.

still on BBC said...

oh, yeah, in case you are wondering....the banned ranters are still alive and well on BBC. Thank you for your concern. Have a nice day. :)

I see you!! said...

Um, I'm sorry but I have never stalked Steff. I didn't give two shits about Steff and didn't get involved in any of her crap. Please pull all threads to see for yourself.

You people amaze me. I'm not posting on the boards, please tell me who I am.

Grow up. Seriously, grow up.

mykidsmom said...

Charlie,

You're a bitch who seriously needs some mental help. And I mean that in all seriousness. You clearly have some problems. To actually wish terrible things to happen to someone you don't even know is truly psychotic. Yes bbc'ers, you heard that right. Your precious Charlie isn't quite as nice as you seem to think.

Love, Debra

p.s. I don't have step parents, never been beaten or locked in a closet, my kids are not overweight nor do they chow down on Cheetos and soda. Unlike your children who are probably stuck sitting in front of a tv all day while you sit your ass on the computer all day and night, my kids are great, but thanks for thinking of them:)

Ranting said...

To avoid confusion and by request, below is the post that Deb (and it's Deb, not Debra, at least get the name right) was responding to. (We shared it with her on ranting.)

I haven't been approving the really lame, malicious comments, but this will give you an idea of the fucktards we're dealing with here:

The ranters are a bunch of pathetic losers who are mad at the world because they are so fug. What a bunch of spineless bitches. I can totally see one of them pulling a stunt like that evil woman did to that poor girl on myspace who killed herself.

Most people are smart enough to realize that the ranters are just angry that they were exposed. HA HA Fucking HA. And the so called attention whores have not been banned.

You are just jealous wenches and feel the need to attack people who are well like decent human beings.

Karma will come back to bite you nasty women in the ass....one by one terrible things will happen to you and I'm sure Debra already feels that. Try being nice to people for a change and maybe things will look up for you.

And this blog is far from "edge of your seat" reading, I just had a link from the last story and clicked on it. You are able to spew your venom on here in a one sided mannner.

You are pathetic excuses of human beings. I'm convinced you were beaten by your step fathers, locked in closets, and fat and ugly which caused your step parents to hate you even more. You think you can blog which is a fucking joke.

You are ruining your children who are probably overweight from your neglect. You throw them a soda and some cheetos so you can contine to rant away in la la land.

Karma baby....Karma.


You make yourself look really good, psycho...And we're supposedly the "bad guys!"

Anonymous said...

Deb, mykidsmom...whatever, you ladies are just mean and nasty. You pride yourselves on hurting others. Sure I am mad, I think it's sad that grown women think it's funny to harm others.

And yes, I think what goes around comes around. Here you try to paint yourselves out to be these wonderful and decent human beings when we all know differently.

You can call me psycho or whatever you feel like, I can go to bed at night knowing I'm a decent human being and I do good unto others.

I'm glad you published my comments, you'd be amazed at how many others apparently agree.

I never wished harm upon you, I just said you get what you deserve. When you are mean and nasty you exude no kindness to others you deserve what is coming to you. Negative people experience negative things.

charlie is a ignorant cunt said...

Karma is a positive thing, dickwad. There is no such thing as bad karma coming back and biting you in the ass. You either get good karma, or you get none at all. Do some research before you start spouting shit. Dumbass.
It scares me that you are a mom, Charlie. Wonder why you don't have any friends IRL?? Sad, sad, sad.

Ranting said...

And your actions have shown you to be a real angel. Take a look in the mirror, honey, and listen to yourself. We know, despite your lying protests, that you and your cronies stalked Steff and that familyfourpluskitty chick (or whatever her name is). Plus you like to brag how you have all our names and pictures. STALKER! You do what you want with those. It will just show everyone who YOU really are.

Anonymous said...

Go ahead and play the martyr Charlie. You really aren't as nice as you seem to think you are either. Where exactly were you harmed? The whole pb acct name was simply a joke. No harm was done and no drama was caused except by you. But apparantly its freaking hilarious to post personal information and pictures only if it's done by you or one of your buddies. Did I get that right? The only time it is appropiate and funny and NOT mean spirited in any way is when YOU do it. Only YOU are allowed to make fun of people and post snarky remarks. Am I right?

Believe it or not, we have a great bunch of ladies on our board. We have other interests besides babycenter and you. We talk about our kids, families, the holidays coming up, etc. A lot of people have a misconception about our board. We don't pussyfoot our words, but that's not always a bad thing. You don't like it? Just go away then. Truth is, no, you're not our favorite poster. You were annoying and always seeking attention to yourself on bbc. You brought most of this on yourself.

Wish all the bad karma on me that you want. I don't care. It doesn't bother me. It just makes you look pathetic.

seems like someone struck a nerve.

i'm not psycho, i'm just pissed that grown women such as yourself take pride in hurting others.

i know that i'm a good hearted person and i would never want to bully someone on the net. it's just sad. i'm sure you'll twist it all around and say what i said on here is heartless, but what's good for the goose..

i'm done with this. it's sick and it's twisted and i got way too wrapped up in it. dh is home with the boys and i'm going to enjoy my family.

i hope you are able to find happiness in your lives.

Ranters are not near as bad as the hoffs, and this is coming from a neutral third party. They never took it very far until just recently and honestly I do not blame them one bit. They were baited! PBS is seriously one fry short of a happy meal. She needs to get some help. Prescription meds at the VERY least. If she is on those, then she needs to look at more serious intervention.

hookah sounds fantastic right about now but wine will have to do.

so i'm one fry short of a happy meal, on the wrong meds.

honestly, i have no idea how i got knee deep into this mess. i've only been on bc for a little over 2 years. it started off nice and then i found the bargain board. i had no idea there were people on the sidelines making fun of me. so when i found out i got pissed.

i say i have your photos because they are in a pb account somewhere. i just have them incase i am murdered because i have heard that the ranters are ruthless. i don't have your children's photos. why would i want them? i've got my own two kids.

i regret getting into all of this. it's just a bunch of shit slinging that is never going to stop. i never stalked anyone. i didn't get involved in the steff and kitty drama.

i just post on subjects that interest me. i post as me, i don't hide behind different names. i'm not on the bb right now and i'm not sure if i am going to go back.

so call me a psycho, the c word, horrible, evil and what not but i am pretty sure you know that is not true. i might annoy the shit out of you but i'm not a bully.

my fear is if i keep up at this pace that i will end up like you. it's refreshing to hear that you actually care about your kids and have a heart because from what you do on the board it's frightening.

let's just call a "time out" and enjoy our families tomorrow.

gobble gobble ladies. i'm not doing the turkey trot becuase it's going to be below freezing. i've opted to stay at home and take my meds :) along with a mimosa or 4.

can someone explain to me how this became Charlie's fight? I asked this on Rebecca's blog too, but I guess she only post comments if you are a Hoff. Anyways, I thought that the poster that got burned by the ranters was Gretchen. Is Charlie and Gretchen the same person? Why is Charlie fighting with the ranters then? Can anyone answer that?

Anonymous said...

Charlie and Gretchen are most certainly NOT the same person. Gretchen started the Hoffs, but that is where her involvement ENDS. The weekend the blow up happened she was out of town at a funeral! In fact I've gleened from a good source, Gretchen banned Charlie from the Hoffs now.

We've got her IP, so she's around. While she's annoying and pompous, we could really care less about her. We agree that Zen and the hoffs went WAY too far with their stalking/pursuing of Steff. And agree with you: "nice" role models. Losers.
