Get yourself one of those crappy red t-shirts.
Talk about trains and roundabouts.
When posting to a fellow member, do a winkie, or smiley(even if it's not funny)
Tolerate john_lillie.

Great, welcome. Now, to work your way in you need to:

Use the number 1 instead of the common exclamation Ď!í

Drink post-match upstairs in Doc Browns!!!!1

Write for, sell or talk about the fanzine.

Be in to top obscure band Varicose Bingo

Ruthlessly defend all actions of admin against dissidents no matter how trivial or ridiculous.

re: Iv'e decided to join the clique

If you get to sit at the top table of the clique, and become admin, use your position to try and get your 'end-away' with any given female board member.

red_rebel Posted on 17/11 11:42
re: Iv'e decided to join the clique

Yes, and they must have a favourite disuded Underground station too, isn't that right Mr un_84?

I don't think being admin is a necessity, it just helps a bit.

tell everyone what airport your flying from and what time

draw pictures with smileys

captain5 Posted on 17/11 11:45
re: Iv'e decided to join the clique

You must know things about posters so that the majority of people looking on don't understand what you're on about.

Oh and starting a thread that's really just an attempt to get a ton is a sure sign you're in.

FW_2 Posted on 17/11 11:46
re: Iv'e decided to join the clique

Can we have a definitive and updated list of clique members once and for all please? Judging by this here list there's no way I'd make it into the hallowed portals of clique heaven.

captain5 Posted on 17/11 11:47
re: Iv'e decided to join the clique

You've never used your previous admin powers to seduce another board member??

Sheeesh!!!1

Piquet2 Posted on 17/11 11:47
re: Iv'e decided to join the clique

Yes it would appear that going by that list, that all who were in the clique are now out, and all those who weren't, are in.

6% per username = 600% clique.

I'M NO FOOKERS CLIQUE BITCH!!!!

red_rebel Posted on 17/11 12:12
re: Iv'e decided to join the clique

This seems to have broadened to include just big groups of people on the board.

Sas is muddying the water with talk of people in bars in Amsterdam or people slagging Fordy. They are not criteria just his bugbears. And anyone can join in those discussions

Clique membership is more defined by things that outsiders and casual posters can have no knowledge. Seniority comes from cultural power. And that comes from spending too much time on here.

Hence the frequent discussions about board paleontology... Spaceheadís thread, the spats with Stary, the mad dash, the Goat/Toots soap.... these are the things that make you a member of the clique.

It changes all the time but there are only ever 32 members at any one time, currently defined by those on the list to receiving BB75s newsletter.

captain5 Posted on 17/11 12:12
re: Iv'e decided to join the clique

Yeah, but you wish you were.

boroboy75 Posted on 17/11 12:12
re: Iv'e decided to join the clique

Basically it's a list of people who came on here looking for friends and have managed to find one.

Buggerlugs Posted on 17/11 12:12
re: Iv'e decided to join the clique

I would concur. I struck a few of those off my list because they aren't about much anymore.

you can't have Blondie though on the account she hates Buddy and Piquets guts.

captain5 Posted on 17/11 12:13

To be fair, I'm not clique, I just put myself about a bit.

There's a difference you know.

blotonthelandscape Posted on 17/11 12:16
re: Iv'e decided to join the clique

I only know the 9-5 clique. BB75 is a defo, Red has the ability if not the will, Bandi nope too insecure, Capy I'd be disappointed in, the rest listed I would not argue with.

shaun_84 Posted on 17/11 12:17
re: Iv'e decided to join the clique

the clique shuns me in real-life, I'm not part of the offline circle.

Buggerlugs Posted on 17/11 12:19
re: Iv'e decided to join the clique

Rebel. I remember all those things but despite betraying my clique tendancies by prefixing this sentence with an unwarranted smiley I would deny being "clique". I have been banned 3 times you know.

I think you are being unfair on innocent long time posters.

Buggerlugs Posted on 17/11 12:26
re: Iv'e decided to join the clique

I object.

I currently have hostile relations with Speckyget, FW2, The Commisar and Blondie.

I think gillandi should have my place.

red_rebel Posted on 17/11 12:27
re: Iv'e decided to join the clique

Buggerlugs:

It is about perception. Those newer, casual readers look into one of those threads that are squabbles and see quite clearly a whole load of people who appear to know each other very well.

They would see you trading quips loaded with insider knowledge and have you marked immediately.

We are all regulars in a cyber pub. I donít think of myself as being part of the darts team, or quiz team or one of those always going round selling raffle tickets for a worthy cause but I accept I am part of the community as a whole and have an attachment to it.

That is not to say I donít sometimes go to other pubs.

speckyget Posted on 17/11 12:29

The_Lizards_Jumpers Posted on 17/11 12:53
re: Iv'e decided to join the clique

People need to distinguish between long term posters and this percived clique.

I think it's inevitable that people who have met in real life will be on better terms, and try private jokes than with those who have just "met" on here.

holgate_rochey Posted on 17/11 13:05
re: Iv'e decided to join the clique

You must frown upon singing '10 German Bombers' whenever the topic arises you must complain that it has no relevance to football and is 'Cringeworthy'

the word 'Cringeworthy' must also be used atleast twice a week.

captain5 Posted on 17/11 13:06
re: Iv'e decided to join the clique

Meeting them isn't a pre-requisite for being in the clique.

A lot of us have met Lizards but he is excluded, as the clique are gingerists, as a group.

captain5 Posted on 17/11 13:07

re: Iv'e decided to join the clique

I'll see what the "PC Brigade" have to say about that Captain, surely they will stick up for Ginger peoples rights. If not I see a harsh letter to the Daily Mail.

I'd also refute the fact that I have "met" lots of you. I can count You, RR, Ms Curly, JanPlanner, Bandito and Sas as the people I have met, and at least 2 of those deny belonging to the clique.

Oh and Toots, Davo44, The Commisar, Borowolf and a few others.

I take that last comment back !

He'll then let you have the ticket he was given.

You're quite selective these days. Definite mellowing.

Yes, he even showed an act of kindness to Buddy last week, or was it the week before?

Anyway, it happened, I saw it.

A bench of 5.

That bench doesn't have enough cover on the Right.

re: Iv'e decided to join the clique

I'm not playing second fiddle to anyone, I either start in the clique or I'm out of here.

I've been on here longer than loads of the people on that list, had articles in the fanzine any EVERYTHING !!!

re: Iv'e decided to join the clique

Thanks for that FW2. Hell hath no fury eh?

It runs much deeper than that Specky. It's OK though, your recent good behaviour has won my favour again.

I still think I'm the most uncliquey member of the clique having not meet any of them. Maybe I shall form a sub clique of reluctant clique members with BB75 and Alf.

You only claimed it was the secret FMTTM tug after I protested. I'm still not convinced everyone gets them.

Yes I did meet you, I've also met FW2 before we became estranged, and Toots and Janplanner as it happens. FFS It's all coming out now.

My name is Buggerlugs and I am a clique member

Leedsclive Posted on 17/11 22:13
re: Iv'e decided to join the clique

If I bide my time those in the clique will outnumber those that aren't,and so we NIPs (not interesting posters) will automatically be in an anti-clique of our own without all the effort of creating one in the first place.

tees_tug Posted on 17/11 22:20
re: Iv'e decided to join the clique

Uncle Harry's position in the clique is that of speckygets coat holder.




Doesn't really qualify then.

red_rebel Posted on 17/11 22:27
re: Iv'e decided to join the clique

Tug, you've missed teh action. There were great opportunities for stirring. I tried but I think I was too subtle.

I put you down with that sub-groups of the clique who are essential for balance, those who make a big fuss of dissent but deep down are part of the in the establishment fabric. A bit like Labour MPs. Is that alright?

I picture you as a Dennis Skinner figure.

tees_tug Posted on 17/11 22:30
re: Iv'e decided to join the clique

Rebel, by keeping out the road nobody can accuse me of being behind all the dissent that happens.



No point painting the whole wall when one good slogan does the job.

After 5 years of writing in over a 100 issues and 2 season selling FTMTTMT I finally have promotion to lickspittle (just reward for my efforts at last - thank you god!)

I meant in a deliberately cultivated 'loose cannon' public persona but quietly toe the line when the chips are down mentality rather than any specific political programme. Although I'd like to have seen Tug 'playing Devil's advocate' in a Clay Cross Council meeting.

re: Iv'e decided to join the clique

The clique according to Dr_Seuss

There is a clique,
who think they're chic
and others that are anti-clique.

The chic clique speak,
while anti-clique
respond with shriek. (But it's ALL Greek.)

So anti-clique, in no way meek,
(responding to the clique mystique)
rouse themselves in fits of pique.

But at the peek of anti-clique
the chic clique pique begins to reek
but still declares itself unique.




(I'll stop. I need to take a leak.)

I hate it when squabbles break out inside the clique. It ruins the cosy back-slapping atmosphere and puts Comfy off his stroke.

re: Iv'e decided to join the clique

Shall we push on to 200?

I think the point is that you are in "the clique" as soon as you have posted enough to give people enough of an impression to draw a little mental picture of you.

Some people can post for years an make valuable contributions without becoming embroiled in it but as soon as you engage with particular individuals, or relate personal information, or become concerned with board culture an history, or define yourself as "against the clique" or outline a clear political position you become a cyber cartoon character.

That cartoon may not be a true reflection of the complexities of the real you in real life but it is enough to creatre a definable character on here.

And once you are instantly recognisable to other posters you are in the clique. There is no getting of it out unless you leave.

So in conclusion, everyone on this thread is a saddo.

Bloody hell, I shudder at some of the mental pictures I may have conjured up over the years on here.....just hope the Police never look at this site...or the RSPCA!!!!!

Anyone who doesn't waste a pound on the fanzine, cannot be a clique member.

captain5 Posted on 18/11 10:40

That's my membership revoked, then.

And all of the ones who write for the fanzine.

boroboy75 Posted on 18/11 10:44
re: Iv'e decided to join the clique

So do the contributors 'hangers-on' get freebies too?

captain5 Posted on 18/11 10:46
re: Iv'e decided to join the clique

As far as I'm aware the contributors get a copy.

I don't buy the fanzine.

The_Lizards_Jumpers Posted on 18/11 10:47
re: Iv'e decided to join the clique

I've never had a copy for free in my life, despite writing a couple of articles and a fair few letters under various guises.

boroboy75 Posted on 18/11 10:48
re: Iv'e decided to join the clique

Does john_lillie buy one, and get you to read it to him, then?

red_rebel Posted on 18/11 10:51
re: Iv'e decided to join the clique

See, people play up to their cartoon character. They can't help it. One of BB75's USPs is his antipathy to the fanzine which he never reads because it is full of weak jokes about cakes.

(cue quick flick through book to find anti-rebel factoid)

re: Iv'e decided to join the clique

If there is a clique, which there isn't, I suppose it would have as it's mission statement
"the self maintaining oligarchie thats wants to redefine obscure, on a daily basis, perhaps"

What used to makes me chortle, apart from closing orphanages, was people saying "I am not a member of the clique", yet posting on such a regular basis, that they were.
Lord David for one.
I wonder how out Balkan correspondent is getting on ?
Yarm Legend springs to mind as well.

re: Iv'e decided to join the clique

I love the contradictions about it.

If a long standing group of posters agree that there isn't a clique then clearly there is - and they're in it.

If you insist that there is a clique and bang on at great length every day about how they are stopping you discussing them, then clearly there isn't.
