Social media / websites

This week started with someone who used to take part in #BoardGameHour contracting me on Twitter to complain about our chats. He said it was spam (which is odd cause he doesn't even follow the @boardgamehour account) and that I should stop doing it. I pointed out that #BoardGameHour only takes place for 1 hour out of ever 168 so that if he didn't like it, it was not hard to avoid. Getting trolled did make me think and so I put up a vote to see if people wanted me to continue hosting this weekly event. It seems there are many people (above and beyond those who take part) how really enjoy #boardgamehour. Many people read it back even if they can't take part at the time, which is great to know.

In honor of the Troll, I am making Mondays #BoardGameHour about Social media and websites :0)

The side topic is all about uniqueness...

Hope you enjoy these questions and the discussions they create.
