ENOUGH OF THIS FOOLISHNESS!!!  I DECREE MYSELF TO BE ULTIMATE MOD. YOU ARE ALL BANNED!!!



Wowzers!!  Out of your bunker, into a field, all bare-chested and MANLY,  and wow, what a  beard, Triggie!  I didn't think you had it in you!!

I'm thinkin' we should rename this thread "A better Beard?", but we've already been through that. :(  Oh well....

If someone doesn't want strict moderated rudeness than HE IS HERE FOR THE WRONG REASONS!

"Then"!

A better board starts with better spelling.  :police:




Nope. It starts with having you under surveillance. You started your trolling siesta early today. I think the REAL mods(not your friends) should look through your posts and judge how many of them are off-topic mean bickering remarks.

"Surveillance"??? ::)  What do you think this is, some kind of internet police state??  "Trolling" :o ::) ??? and Romaios? :o :o  You really gotta be kidding!!!  The ONLY troll-like behavior  I've noticed in this thread, is from you lovetzatziki. 

By the way, moderators on this board are NOT trolls.  Trolls may wish they were moderators, so they can impose their neuroses on others and shut people down who they don't like, but I don't see that happening any time soon.  Thank God.  :P

If orthonorm says there should be a forum for shut-ins. What about for shut-outs?

It is funny that the people who complain the most of trolling on meanness seem to be the people who do it the most.  The lack of self-awareness is probably the most humorous part of this whole thing.  :laugh:

Was that rude? ;D ;D

Forgive me. Perhaps I was a bit too pithy. I should have stated that I have no objections to the gentleman's photo provided by TheTrisagion. Although there are certainly gentlemen who would be well advised to keep it under wraps.

I missed this.  I feel better now that I have been singled out.  It is as if all my hard work has now been acknowledged, and I am honored to be recognized by the chief humorist.

Thank you William.  Your support is much appreciated.
