I beg your pardon. I believe it is the Fool's audience, which they are allowing you to play with. When you call a talk show it is the station's audience, not the host's, and when you write a letter-to-the-editor it is the magazine's audience, not the editor's - even though the host and the editor play an important role.

I disagree with this. If a particular caller calls every day and the radio host allows the caller time on air, the caller can develop his own crowd of fans and haters. Howard Stern has done this with several of his "WackPack" circus freaks. They start their own careers.

This is a better model of the boards than presented by you, Goofy. Some boards belong to a large group of posters, other boards are more tightly focused by a ringmaster. Just like anywhere else on the net, it's best to read before jumping in. It's very possible to breach board customs without doing so intentionally.
