After the Bookers, I suggest Goosebumps new [re: power2charm]  

Really. I couldn't sleep without having Amy Grant on for about three months after reading "The Goblin In My Gym Shorts".

For good or for awesome

Re: I must have missed his best stuff [re: NomDePlume]  

In reply to:

Maybe not. The fact that the only poster coming running to his rescue this is his creator (Strawman=Shyster as we all know) says it all. Shyster is one of Strawman many totally unfunny alters. Maybe one of these days he'll stumble on a funny one but I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you

Okay, hands up, I'm fully aware that my alters and myself are dire & unfunny to most, and that they're contrived by way of selfishness, usually out of boredom. That's one of the problems with having too much time on ones hands. I say selfish because I've derived many a laugh from both creating and using them, which I know is kind of wrong I suppose I should create them to entertain others but I really can't be arsed.

Just like you.

In this world second thoughts, it seems, are best.

Well you could always spend more time with the wife and kids. Seems a little irresponsible having kids then wasting all your time here.

I feel all fade-y inside! new [re: pablopicasso]  

In reply to:

pablopicasso: May I just say that I think you are a fabulous moderator EJ? [With accompanying picture of a growth of pansies.]

You know, hardy little blossoms that pansies may be, they're usually associated with poofdom. Next time you want to butter EJ up with some vegetation, may I suggest a manly, hardy, winter squash?

In reply to:

p2c: I bozoed him and afterwards I hardly knew or cared whether he improved or declined in his inanity. That's why the bozo is there, as you well know.

Ah... And you know what? I've always found the bozoing tool to be quite effective for filtering out what I didn't want to read. But you are the one who told me, in your "Mr. TW Mandate" sort of way, that as a moderator, I am not allowed to bozo anyone. Remember? So far, I am not allowed to bozo, and I am not allowed to express my like or dislike of a poster. What other mandates you got up your sleeve?

As with my contentedness in hangdoggy's freedom to state that he doesn't like me, I've no problem with you telling us, the mods, what you think we did wrong. And your opinion, and all those expressed on this thread, will undoubtedly impact the next decision that arises. But the egocentricism you exhibit in expecting us to say "Fine, whatever p2c wants, we'll do" irks me plenty.

In reply to:

banning isn't a group decision. At least, it never used to be when Evan made the decision.

How astute you are. There were no group decisions before there was a group.

In order to be mod, first you must be hip.

How the hell do you spell ban-able? new [re: Monkeyboy]  

In reply to:

I still contend that ddgz is the most brilliantly constructed alter ever. If that were the case I don't think that he would have been banned.

Well, I'm notoriously bad at figuring out alters, but I seem to remember somewhere in the foggy banks of my memory thinking the same thing. I'm not sure if this makes him more or less bannable, though, since it would mean that rather than being an illiterate mongoloid he was intentionally being an ass. I guess the intent doesn't really matter in the end, though.

In reply to:

The point is that with the banning of ddgz, the bar for banning has been lowered significantly....The only real message that has been sent with ddgz's banning is that if your posts aren't up to a changable, vaguely-defined quality that is known by only about 32 people (and who all have varying opinions on what the standard really is), you aren't welcome here.

Possibly, and I understand this is why you and p2c and others are so concerned. But look, dogz was posting the way he was posting for about a year. Whether or not idiocy is ban-worthy, I think the fact that it took a year for the subject of banning to come up seriously and then that it took about another month for it to actually happen *and* that he was allowed back after a relatively short time is enough to soothe my mind about our beloved mods wielding their powers without warning in the future. I just hope that everyone else can share my optimism and trust, and that no one will feel discouraged or bullied as you suggest they might.

Guh. Now I feel all dirty and mean for coming down on the side of hard-assedness. Can I atone by re-stating my fervent desire for the return of anons?

In conclusion, I would like to apologize for the fact that nothing I've said on this thread is coherent enough to warrant reply. I guess that's what happens when you start the day with a pair of Beam & cokes and a swig of Jameson. On the plus side, it would seem that my Iron Chef avatar works.

Cuttlefish battle!

So very wrong. There is no other reason to create an alter. Well done!

And I feel totally had. Not the first of last time. Let's kiss and make up. Better yet, how about a good old fashioned, Army-style circle jerk?

Re: The Euro Mods are watching you new [re: power2charm]  

Power2charm, so you are the current, although maybe not for long Mr TW, well I imagine in the past you must have been quite entertaining, before my time, since I've been around I have found you rather boring in the times that I have had to think of you at all.
Your Wilco thread is the blot on the TW landscape, I can only guess that you must be as dull as the 'music' they produce.
I think everyone should stop using dd74 as a weapon to fight with. He was banned, he was allowed back, he has changed for the better, surely a product of a good penal system?
The Euro mods are as good as the other mods, they keep in the background as far as moderating goes, and are here to enjoy themselves like everyone else. I think there was something wrong in Sysiyo's attitude with dd74 but it is nice to see he was big enough to apologise for his actions.

Strawman, your alters will go down in history, as will Monkeyboys. The only trouble I have now is I don't think Dr. Hannibal Lector is who I thought he was.

The mods do a great but thankless task.

Thank you mods.

I'll slash them cold, I'll kill them dead
I'll break them gooks, I'll crack their heads
I'll slice them till they're running red
But now I've got the running gun blues

Sorry, I just thought of that line as I was urinating and giggled to myself. Thought I'd share.

Re: You forget yourself, Doctor new [re: power2charm]  

In reply to:

I believe this is your post's thesis:

Wait, I thought that the good doctor's thesis was that, rather than the moderators being power-hungry bullies, it's you who's trying to bully TW into being the kind of messageboard you'd like it to be?

"I love Let's Dance! I love every track on it! I love China Girl!"
