Re: Does this make me the PC Prince? new [re: Monkeyboy]  

Seriously, if you think your theory consequently to the end you'd have to say that noone who is a poster here could take up the job as, following your theory, the "potential" thread is in the job - not in the poster and his actions. This bears an inner logic though it sounds a bt like "every male is a potential rapist".

Now you may argue that a less loudmouthed poster like yourself (so much about your mod qualifications) and I may be a solution but that would still counteract your own thoughts as you'd never know if he/she isn't eventually taking the gun out. And just as K (Sys) said before: Even the moderate Adam has got under fire here over the years.

Subsequently there is only two practical solutions to end the mod/poster dilemma in Monkey think: No moderator at all, as Strawman suggested, or a concealed moderator acting under an alter ego name, someone which noone knows who he/she really is, secretly appointed by Adam.

Both solutions obviously have their faults but coming from your point of view you should vote for one them.

I'll take either. Honestly, I don't care between the two.

But every male is a potential rapist, no matter how much it bothers me that people say it.

We deserve better.

Actually, I don't think every male is a potential rapist, because there's more to rape than having a penis.

But every male is, on some level, a potential sexual threat to a woman. Which is exactly why men in society are expected to keep their sexuality in check*, and why we have sexual harassment laws. It is exactly why you don't go around making sexually explicit comments to women who work for you or with you, no matter that it's just your honest opinion that she's got a nice ass. You're not allowed to express that opinion in that type of environment. Even if you're "a good guy" and would never force yourself on your female subordinate. It's still threatening and makes her feel uncomfortable.

This is getting so dumb now that I should be drunk, too.

[[To be fair, I really need to add that women are also supposed to keep their sexuality in check, and not harass men either.]]

Adam will be surprised this turned into a buster new [re: EJSunday]  

In reply to:

I find it quite strange that someone like yourself who permanently flexes the muscles is intimidated by a mod sign.



I find it quite strange that you refuse to believe your actions are intimidating when even someone as formidable as me admits to being a little intimidated.

In reply to:

Don't worry, as long as Adam isn't telling me to leave it I won't. So you can go on raving for more time to come.



Great. So you finally tell us that Adam is the one we have to pressurize if we want some change around here. I should have realized that middle management always kick the problem upstairs once it exceeds their ability to deal with.

So effectively we have to continue kicking up this fuss until Adam comes back? The general TW population is going to love us for that!


I like dogs. You always know what a dog is thinking. It has four moods. Happy, sad, cross and concentrating. Also, dogs are faithful and they do not tell lies because they cannot talk.

No. Seems like you are again taking your own idea of beahviour as a blueprint for others - but believe me, people are different.

And say what you like but for me Adam is the head of this site. And as Adam and I agreed on me doing the mod job I would never break my word without talking to him first as I do not tend to break agreements just from my side. But don't worry, I wouldn't want to give the job up anyway.

Got that?

Re: Tip for registering at TW new [re: anisette]  

I've had the same problem before and I cannot recall exactly what I did but I effectively had to trick the system (and it's a little bit playing with fire when the system is not always working correctly). Here are some suggestions:

* Try the general TW login page (this gets you into general TW features - not specifically the registry).

* Try the Change My Password page

* Try the forgotten password page and see what response you get.

P.S. It might be best to log out of CP before you attempt any changing of passwords.

Re: Tip for registering at TW new [re: Adam]

No really, she sooo was new [re: Shelle]  

In reply to:

Pass on the picnics, and one thing I've quickly come to the conclusion is that the number of genuinely fuckable guys here I could number on the fingers of one hand. Or maybe even on the fingers of one finger.


I didn't want to make things awkward for Shelle but I just want to say that I think we all know she was talking about me. Just sayin'...

And as a side note: I'm totally being serious and not trying to start an argument (really!) but EJ, when you call me "Monkey" it seems like an insult. If you could either try not to do that or convince me that it isn't I'd appreciate it. And please note that I must be totally serious and non-combative because I haven't a) called you anything horrible or b) wished cancer on you.
