    Thankfully you're letting off steam rather than methane.

    Heh, heh. I do that too sometimes, but only over PMs and to people whom I truly adore. :D

    it has been issues relating to preferential and derogatory treatment which have caused a good 90% of JC problems in the 18months since I have been here.
    Shocking numbers you have there! I'm interested as to how this study was conducted, where the control group was, and how this compares to other studies in this remarkable field of study! Could you please enlighten us not-so-scientific members of the community as to how you found these statistics?

    You can use statistics to prove anything, 9 out of 10 people know that.

    I think there's a 1 in 2 chance that 75% of statistics are made up on the spot.

    AYBABTU?

    Did you know 8 out of 10 new threads fail in their first hour? I'm speaking of threads like this one.

    Hi everyone. :)

    I'm not trying to offend anyone at all, but I think that one mod in particular (who I am most dissatisfied with and who should be 'demoted' immediately for his appalling behaviour towards everyone who visits the JC) has caused exactly 89.3245% of the problems in the 14 months since I've been here. That's an overwhelming figure, and if you compare it to my findings in an imaginary study of another message board which I just conducted in my head, there is clearly issues which need to be addressed immediately. I won't go into the details of this study because, as we all know, it never took place. However, I don't really like to name names as I don't feel it will solve anything, but with any luck, my imprecise ramblings will bring a satisfactory conclusion to this problem. Perhaps if I give you 20 questions to find which mod I'm refering to? That would be fun. :) I'm not trying to be horrible to any of the mods, but I really hate the person who I'm thinking of and I hope he dies a painful death. :) Oh yeah, and in future mods, when you get the urge to dole out stinging remarks, put a smiley face in the most inappropriate place, just like I do. :)

    Exactly! Making up fake :) numbers and not naming names is one of the most unhelpful things a member :) can do on these forums! :)

    I see. This is very interesting. By this logic, the Administration should ban the person you are mocking, regardless to any sort of "Good job!", "Hey buddy!", or "I'm your man!" sort of attitude.

    Has anyone else noticed that "Internet Drama" is an anagram for "Dan are tent rim?" ?[face_plain]


    Coincidence? I think not...

    It'd be awesome if I could think a sarcastic response that was bolth antognizing and within the rules right now.

    But I can't. Oh well.

    We hover over the rules, sometimes dipping into them to get rid of pesky trolls and unwanted riff raff.

    Sometimes we abuse our powers to make subtle changes to other people's posts.Other times, we blatantly edit posts in an attempt at levity or humor. If I do it, it's a massive failure, but I've come to accept my position as whupping boy of the ModSquad.
