I am not sure how Slugger O’Toole reacts to the thread about it on its rival(?) message board “Politics.ie.
On one level all publicity is good publicity. On another level it cant be a good sign when a message board becomes a story. Perhaps it is a sign that people are starting to ask questions about the motivations and effectiveness of Slugger as a credible message board. Of course I have been asking these questions for at least a year. And certainly within my SDLP circle, Slugger’s reputation has been plummeting.
“Hobo” alerted me to this P.ie thread yesterday evening. When I initially signed on to P.ie, I discovered that I could not comment on the Slugger thread as I am a “newbie” there……..I had only posted a grand total of 11 comments in nearly two years. So I spent most of yesterday evening (between Olympic events) posting 39 comments on various P.ie threads just to get my 50 posts to qualify for the Slugger thread. Such dedication.
It has however put me way behind with Blogging some good stuff including a guest post.
