Hi all,
Some of you might remember that I posted on here and old EB to get perspectives for an article I was writing on EB.

It’s now been published online in Overland Journal and can be found here:

https://overland.org.au/2021/04/watchin ... aby-forum/

I’m pretty excited, and would love to hear anyone’s feedback, as it will hopefully be most relevant to EB members. Thanks especially to the member who agreed to be quoted. If anyone is in contact with a Richard Parker I’d like to pass my thanks on to her too - her responses to the thread I posted were very insightful.

Trillian42; That was a beautiful piece of writing. Now I miss old EB even more. I've let Richard Parker know about your article and post.

Yes totally agree! There have been a couple of times over the last couple of months that I wish I could check something I had posted, or remember a thread or check a pm that was sent.

Great article!

That's a lovely piece of writing, OP. Clear admonishment of Nine, expressed so perfectly, but with such a beautiful explanation of why it mattered.

I'm off duty on EB, and so my grammar is all over the place because I'm a lazy sod, but as a journo who has to sub-edit a lot of opinion pieces, I have to say that you are *good* at this.

A lovely tribute.
I've tried to comment that on the article also, but it doesn't show up.

Thanks for sharing your beautifully written article which so perfectly put into words all that was EB.

I joined EB back in 2003. Like PP's reading the article made me feel a little teary and nostalgic. But what a joy to have been part of something so special.

Great writing,

I can't believe it wasn't archived, not for me I really don't give a shit about what I have ever said but in 50, 80 years time they could learn so much from what is was like to live in the family since EB started

Nice article.

Should never read the comments though.
