Sk Fans? Then Why The Non Sensical Thread Topics?

    Huge fan of SK for over 20 years. I get pimply goosebumps when he releases a new book. Why do some of the 'fans' here waste our time, his time, or his publisher's time with post's which have nothing to do with his work? There is an infinite number of sites where you can post your ignorant ideas about god, social issues, or who won on last night's Bachelor. Please, let's not sully this forum with such nonesense.

    Hi Tara, welcome to the site. :)

    Perhaps you haven't had time to peruse all of the different areas as yet? There are sections dedicated solely to Stephen's Written Works and Movies and other sections available for members to discuss things in general. This community caters mainly to his fans and is run by staff members. (Ms. Mod - his Personal Assistant, Jordan our Webmaster, Brian our Graphic Artist, plus a couple of volunteer Moderators.)

    Stephen and his publishers are not inconvenienced in any way as they deal directly with Ms. Mod. As to the fans, we are open to discussion, but if you take a good look around, you may be surprised to see that most people seem happy here.

    Hi Tara,
    Here's a photo of Johnny Depp to make you feel welcome :D


    Okay....it's for Flake as well. I promised her one every day, and I've slacked off a bit.
    Hope you stick around and enjoy the site

    The point is that we genuinely like each other here....and we like like to have fun.
    This does not make us less fans of Stephen King. There are fabulous discussions about his many wonderful works.....which you will find if you
    relax a little and look around :)

    The point being I guess, is that people are having fun? We do endeavor to keep threads on topic when we can, but not to the point (granted) that conversation becomes stifled and people lose interest. If those kinds of threads don't appeal to you, then perhaps sticking to the Book/Movie/TV and Other Projects sections may be more to your liking?
    (Many of those threads are looking a bit empty and bare because we have just moved over to new software, perhaps you'd like to post into those threads... liven them up a little? :) )

    A lot of us have been on the board for a very long time and like to chat with each other. This is a place of (mostly) non-judgment and I have made a lot of friends on this board. It's a nice place to meet someone you have something in common with. If we stuck to SK all the time we may run out of things to say.

    You are free to only to stick to the threads about SK and not sully yourself with our ignorance.

    And please, feel free to add to the (mostly) non-judgmental atmosphere of the place.

    I think you are taking my statement personally. There is nothing wrong with conversing with eachother about any topic. What I fail to understand is why this website is your platform. It matters not Iif there areother areas on
    This site for learned discussion on tbe finer points of Mr. Kibg's work, but rather why you find it necessary, nay acceptable, to sully the official site of such a markedly talented mn, regardless of forum, with discussions about some brit WAG who has a 6 pack 4 days

    I can tell you now that if Stephen had a problem with the way his site is being run, then I would have heard about it via Ms. Mod long before now. It isn't a problem.

    You can choose to accept that and join in, or carry on with your personal attacks (yes) and accept the responses you will no-doubt receive.

    I love you too, Flake.

    Welcome to the site. We here are fans of Stephen King, and though we don't see eye to eye all of the time, we are very much like minded people who enjoy spending internet time together. Sorry if this place isn't for you, but I welcome you to hang around a bit and see it doesn't grow on you. There are some good folks on here, truly.
