well if i understand the question, we're both.
and neither.

guido set up this site in november when the bum shut down the plazabum site, for what appeared to be the final time.

the bum had re-booted it twice before...once in august of last year and again in september, wiping out all existing posts.

since then he's brought it back several times and it can be found in it's current form here.

since everyone here was a member of the original plazabum forum, when it went off the air (so to speak) guido set up this place so we could speak our minds and all that happy horse manure. hence the name "bum rejects."

i'll always be thankful to plazabum for bringing the disparate elements of this board together and i have a soft spot in my heart for the old talk of the town board too....where most of us met for the first time.

but...i'm a bit of a narcissist and i like to think that what i write is, if not deathless prose, at least worth reading or i wouldn't have writ it.

and that's why i like it here.
i have a modicum of control as to whether my pearls of wisdom and golden nuggets of knowledge are flushed...or not.

I started TOTT v.2 and immediately turned the reigns over to PB because I didn't want to run a forum site.  Love posting but not very savvy when it comes to data bases and such.  

We all stayed there for a while while PB finished PlazaBum.com and then when finished made an orderly move to that site.  

To this day I don't fully understand what happened but to the best of my knowledge Plazabum.com was shut down in an effort to stop a law suit or something.  One day we had access and then the next we were going to facebook.  

At this point Guido created this site.  Scrutney and I did the best we could to gather the flock and move them to this site but for some unknown reason my attempts to continue to gather the flock were thwarted by some one (I assume PB his self) deleted my posts.  And that was the end of that.  

In the beginning there were like 4 or 5 of us and then there were 6, then 7 and so on...  

Here is the deal!  In the last 5 years we have watched every forum this group has been associated with go down the tubes...  TOTT closed and we moved then that move got shut down because of viscous ad hominem attach on people, then TOTT v2 saw similar attacks several of us myself included would virtually root around in the mud.  

We moved to PB and the same happened again.  It close due to those attacks.  

Now we are here.  It is my opinion we are here because of ad hominem attacks not only ourselves but those outside this community.  

It is because of these attacks that Guido will not allow them here.  It is the only hard and fast rule.  

When Plazabum reincarnated itself I adopted a hard nosed attitude.  I will not be going back.  My attempts to keep the group together were stopped, my access to PB facebook blocked and my messages deleted.  And all this with out so much as a high, good bye or kiss my foot.  

So I am here.  And here is where I will stay.

Thanks.  When I came home last night, I didn't see anyone on this site, and then received an email from PlazaBum mailer requesting I join that site, so wasn't sure what was going on.  I guess it was a just quiet day yesterday for "the rejects."

I was doing a community service this weekend.  My company supports a program to get kids off the street.  They/we own several homes where kid can get their lives together, with job assistance, cloths, transportation, some cash .......  

Every year we do a Burger booth at a local event.  I was the main burger chef.  I cooked and served 150+ breakfasts and probably 800 burgers, cheese burger, and Lumber Jack and Janes.    

Needless to say my participation was limited the last three days.  

We are open for business and ready to opine..  I wish PB the best of luck but for the moment I am staying here.
