Hello again Sysiyo. I know you like to respond sincerely and responsibly to everyone’s posts and take their suggestions to heart; let’s hope you do so with this one.

Well there you go. Exactly how do you expect the TW community to believe that YOU of all people are in a dependable position to criticize the Coffee Shop and separate the chaff from the wheat? Whenever you flood the board with your inane single-sentence responses and your very special breed of humor, you rarely give any thought to the cumulative effect your posts have on poor Evan’s wallet. Out of your 8000 posts, at least 70% of them are geared towards the opposition of Hunky Dory, which is something that IF you had bothered to consider your actions before banging the submit button for the 6000th time, could have been adequately summarized in ONE post. Now add up the total cost in bandwidth of displaying Sysiyo’s silly narcissistic avatars, the repeated ‘jokes’, the history of Bowie when he was signed to Deram which no one wants to hear about, and you’ll only then begin to comprehend the immensity of Sysiyo’s uselessness and detrimental effect on the board. Yes, my fellow TWers, I’m looking for an OUTRIGHT BAN on Sysiyo.
Now the more recent denizens of TW may think that I’m overreacting, but I think I’d better illustrate my point with a couple of examples. Here is a TYPICAL EXAMPLE of Sysiyo’s average contribution to a thread. I’d like my fellow TWers to consider that I clicked on this thread completely at random and can therefore be interpreted as a measure of the true calibre of Sysiyo’s posts. Not only does it contain one of those ridiculously humorless ‘better than Hunky Dory’ messages, but she compounds her onslaught by wasting yet more space on the server with a pointless ‘is too!’ follow-up. Please remember that all of these worthless posts of Sysiyo’s have to be catalogued, indexed and date-stamped on the TW server and the overall effect is one that makes a far greater contribution to oops messages than many dozens of threads. In fact, I’m sure if Adam or Evan had the good sense to wipe out ALL of her 7000 messages, TW would never receive an Oops message ever again!
(Note to Sysiyo: Dinner at eight, don’t be late! )
If we even had to select another forum for periodic culling, I suggest Collectors’ Corner which contains far fewer interesting threads once they’ve been answered initially (they are rarely revived). Also, I maintain the accusation I have stated on numerous occasions that CC is over-populated by pedophiles who are single-handedly responsible for the mysterious disappearance of many of TW’s finest posters over the years (I have reliable sources indicate that Skellaway has both Kirk and Sylvanelf locked in his basement.)
Thank you for your time.
