The AMD Clique does it, or doesn't it exist?

It has been brought up several times that there exists a clique here on AMD. We've heard about it in the blogs over and over again. While many deny such an allegation the accusations continue. Now everytime it was brought up I got my feelings hurt as I've been here for years and never once have I been invited to join said "Clique". I thought I was alone in this, but then several other members expressed an interest in becoming members of this "clique" also. So I got to thinking maybe it's not just me, maybe it's soooo exclusive that many here are excluded from this "Clique" Or maybe, just maybe it never really existed at all??? So this afternoon when it was brought up again in Dayna's blog, I decided to do some research. After extensive reading on the subject (ok, you busted me, it was only about 30 seconds on Google) I've decided that the "Clique" on AMD does exist!! Turns out that a "Clique" is just a small informal group of friends or associates held together by common interests, views or purposes. (Merriam-Webster's Dictionary) Now you might say, well that's not entirely fair, if it's small, but here is it really all that small? With hundreds of us that are bound together by the common interests that we share? Our views? Or even our purposes? This got me thinking that maybe I've been a member of one all along and didn't even know it. I mean I've got 29 people on my friends list, that are all friends. And when I add up all the people on my friends' friend lists it totals 931 more! So really how small is this so called "Clique"? Granted there are many members that will be repeats as they are friends to many of the others, but that still leaves the possiblity of several hundred members tied together by common interests, views and purposes! So if you look at as several hundred compared to the millions online each day, I guess you could indeed say that a "Clique" does exist here on AMD. I know I'm damn proud to be part of it! Love ya'll!

just a little devil's advocate; in eight months on here, i've never seen as many as 500 people on line at any one time. what with bots & scams, plus amd's obvious penchant for overstating membership & use, i would think you'd need to reduce those numbers by 20- 25%.
so having 931 friends & friends of, maybe even elevates the clique to a cabal? but certainly a mighty powerful force!!

Naw Casually, the only dues I pay are my gold fees and it's up to you if you wanna go gold or not! I think it definitely has it's advantages but that's just my opinion!
Tetons- I did state that some of those are repeats, so it narrows it down but it's still several hundred! Granted we may not all be online at the same time but still a force to be reckoned with!
Luvs you too Max!

Well Stormy, you have a point many of us are on each others list, and maybe the clique that is mentioned often is a bunch of us who blog together, have fun together and enjoy our online time together. I don't know of a time that our "clique" has ever not given someone a chance to join in, tho that is how we are portrayed to be. I know that I am not the only one who feels that everyone has a right to thier opinion and done without stepping on someones toes and respectfully are treated with respect. It is those that come in and are nasty or mean or just here to argue that are treated with disrespect and should i "shunned". I dont judge ppl on how many other ppl like them, i judge them on how they treat others. When i came into the blogs, it wasnt that i wasnt treated nicely, just the opposite but it took awhile to be accepted just like it does in the off line world of friends. So if we are in a clique so be it, anyone can join if they stick around and treat everyone as they want to be treated.

You did an excellent job on this and even tho i think you told me wrong on the kudos for free sex I happily give you one of my coveted kudos.

See now everything happens when I'm at work. I get home and read the blogs and find out I'm not in the clique. I wanna be a member too. Where do I join up?

See that is the beauty of this, you already are! A clique is just a small informal group of people brought together by their interests, views or purposes, so I think all of us that are friends..........we have our own clique! I'm sure more than one exists here but I'm happy to be in the one I'm in!
