//turns DOY around and points her towards Florida
DOY, how many times do I have to tell you? We drink Molson to celebrate after the victory, not before!
We should make them eat poutine as a punishment and drown them in our beer.
Poutine? Naw. Make them use all parts of the buffalo.
Or, we could feed them "lobster flavoured chips" and make them puke to death. They exist, trust me. I saw them on the island last summer.
They deleted our thread. It was one of the largest threads that board had ever seen, too.
But why? We weren't being violent. We were fighting with snow and timbits for gods sake!
Maybe it's more of that anti-Canadian sentiment I told you about.
Then maybe we should go after a country that doesn't hate us...yet.
That's pretty much every country in the world. We could always start a world war...
And demand world domination?
Naw. We don't need world domination. We have more land than we could ever use as it is. What we need is what Japan tried to do. Make the countries of the world dependant on us for trade. We need a market for our maple syrup.
I say we start with Sweden. They've expressed an interest in our maple syrup in the past.
Actually, in all seriousness, after the response we got from the Floridians, I think we should lay low. You never know when you'll go up against someone who doesn't share our sense of humour.
The Brits were the only ones. They had humour! They laughed at us when we attacked. And we gained Rambles.
The Swedes were good too, until we started kicking their butts.
Alas, Canadian humour is hard to find.
And I wasn't drunk! You said Forward March when I was facing a wall!
Since it started here and there was a question regarding WHY the thread was locked and WHY AT60 was asked not to post in the forum anymore, I'll address the issue here.
I got a PM from the CR of Orlando asking:
[blockquote]Can you please do something about Admiral_Thrawn60?
I want him to stop posting in the Melbourne FF. He is not welcome there. I don't really care that the Canada group is having some fun. I do care that it is AT60 especially when he's doing it just to stir trouble.[/blockquote]
After reading the conversations here about wanting to "have some fun" I can see that there was no real intent to start trouble.
You went about it in the same way you did Toronto. You can't just walk into a forum and "declare war" without letting them know first. (Ya ya, kind of defeats the purpose of war if you announce it first but...)
Tammy had the right idea of contacting the CR ***FIRST*** to ask for permission, (even Tara hinted that she did not want a repeat of Toronto).
Since you guys have rattled the Melbourne cage I think the smartest thing to do would be to "pull out the troops".
I also think it would be a good idea for Tammy to contact LordGoldenArrow and conduct some "peace talks" to smooth things over. Creating unintentional enemies of other forums does not help your standing as a FF Chapter (or Chapters).
Geez...leave for one night and everything goes to hell...
When I contacted mac-nut, he thanked us profusely for wanting to attack them, but said this would not be a good time, as most of their active posters are away (some on military missions), and there's really only one or two there right now. He said he would let me know a more appropriate time.
Ya know, I seem to remember sometime last year something happening in one of the north Florida boards where anti-Canadian feelings were discovered. I don't remember what it was, though.
AND WHO'S IDEA WAS IT TO GO FOR FLORIDA??
The closest FF to me is actually Fort Lauderdale. Melbourne is a lot more north of me than Ft. Lauderdale is south.
I'm sorry it happened that way. I really am. We'll figure something out, don't worry.
Maps don't lie, and on my map, Melbourne is slightly closer to Stuart than Ft. Lauderdale. At any rate, it was their idea to hit Hawaii, but the idea to hit your home was mine. Didn't you see how I mentioned that the loss of you would be acceptable collateral damage?
After this, I think it's safe to say that the anti-Canadian feelings were discovered in Melbourne. I thought it was just Sandy, but I guess it's the entire board, so we'll just stay away from that place.
That might be a very good idea, Chris. Unfortunately, some things run a bit different down here. North Florida is a completely different set of people than what we have here in south Florida. And Fort Lauderdale is only about an hour and a half away. Melbourne is further from me than that.
Travelling time, Ft. Lauderdale may be closer, but straight line distance, Melbourne is definately closer.
Send me a PM describing the difference in N/S FL mindsets, please. Sounds like something I should know.
I just measured my map. My apologies. Ft. Lauderdale IS about a millimetre closer.
That's 0.03937 inches, Tammy, so you can see how easy it is to make a mistake.
But what do we do with all these hockey sticks and timbits?
