. On the subject of ownership...like all Marxist ideals, public never really seems to work out. Shares in The Return of the Social Thread at the End of the Galaxy are split somewhat evenly between Penguinator-176 (34%), MASTERPRENN (33%), and Reynar_Tedros (33%). The majority shareholder shall henceforth be the author of subsequent Social Threads at the End of the Galaxy, in a relatively cyclical fashion. It should also be noted that MASTERPRENN's joint-ownership strategy was prompted by excessive "thread-killing" by both Penguinator-176 and Reynar_Tedros. [hr] As seems to be the case with every establishment these days, there is a need for some order to be kept, and as such, we ask the great patrons of this wonderful restaurant/bar/grille/coffee shop to abide by the following rules and regulations: 1 - Seeing as fire tends to destroy things and raise the heat to rather uncomfortable levels, please keep the flames in the fire place, and the flaming to the licensed professionals (i.e. nobody here). 2 - Trolls emit a rather?unpleasant?scent, and are not welcome here in any shape or form. 3 - The Social Thread at the end of the Galaxy prides itself on the cutting edge menu it offers, and spam is certainly not on that list. It would not be in your best interest to anger Hansel, our Bavarian chef (he has anger issues?), and bringing such low-class meat in such as spam would upset him terribly. 4 - Rabble rousing and ruckuses are encouraged, but please, keep them in the designated areas. 5 - Everything exists. Period. End of discussion. Henceforth, there shall be no need for existential debate. 6 - Quoting the Joker from the 2008 blockbuster "The Dark Knight" is, and always will be, a viable form of conversation. 7 - Last, but certainly not least (in fact, quite the contrary), obey any and all Mods in matters relating to the TOS, JC Rules, and so forth. [hr] And with that, good patrons, I declare this thread...OPEN! ...again!
