Er, he is talking about Bildo's little forum? The same one that promotes "thinning out the herd"? That Bildo? Yeah, right.....
It does promote the hobby of old weirdoes posting about wanting to marry little girls, so I guess he's cornered that market.
We stopped going to the FLGS for that reason. What the hell is a bunch of 50+ old farts doing hanging around teenagers too young to drive, whose moms dropped them off???
There was a “game day” where I put on a Blood Bowl tournament. Unlike Bill, I did not care for having a cute 15 year old girl sitting across from me dressed like.... the kind of girl Bill would like sitting across from him. “Not sloppy”.
We all agreed it was an uncomfortable situation.
So I went full steam ahead on the ping pong table in my basement.
There is “promoting The Hobby to the young” and there is ... a shitload of trouble. We opted out.
Bohemia Lodge tomorrow night! Beer and chili! I’m going to try to play Cousin Tommy from Dillinger’s gang.
Rule #1. No beer with teenagers.
Besides, those kids were just not into a tense Age of Reason 15mm SYW game. “Hey Jerry! Your mech is up on the screen!” And so the Austrian 3rd Brigade is suddenly leaderless.
The fact that you can’t sit and play a game with a 15 year old without feeling uncomfortable puts you in the same class as Bill.
So you don’t think that hanging around teenagers is asking for trouble?
Catholic Church priests?
Boy Scouts adult leaders?
Girl’s gymnastics team “doctors”?
Ohio State athletics department doctors?
You’re a fool if you don’t think it’s awkward. We’re not so called “professionals”.
