Ah sorry about that. I just found it amusing that rob posted such a thing about forgiveness.

Esp when he has the biggest chip on his shoulder.

We all have chips we need to get rid of.

Well then, it's to bad there isn't an 'ignore' feature....waaaaaaiiit a minute!

To many of the people that profess to dislike him so much pay him all the attention. if everyone that didn't like him blocked him and avoided his threads then problem solved....but they secretly love him to much to do that.

What really amazes me is how often Kevin claims that I'm attacking or abusing people, yet always fails to come up with concrete examples. The lack of examples and exaggeration of past actions only hurts his credibility.

Indeed. I'd say over 75% of my bans have been the result of 'fanbois' reporting anything I post and whining like little girls, even if I was behaving.

You can say it, but that doesn't make it true. Not even close. Your bans have been the result of actions of one person: You.

Hence the reason that a request for forgiveness has not been filed. When someone refuses to accept that they've ever been a jerk, they're probably not going to ask for someone to forgive them.

You can say that, but that doesn't make it true. Other mods have been frank about certain people setting out to piss me off, harass me, and claim they report posts of mine only because I'm the one who posted them. Talk to the other mods about it.

PS: Where the hell have you been the past year or two?

ANYWAY, this thread isn't about me, it's about the lounge, and why it's been less exciting than a board on cultivating marigolds or something.

I Think Dakar's introduction of the white text phenomenon has been a big improvement in the quality of the Lounge.

Hell, every time I read one of his posts I have to highlite it to make sure I am not missing something.

One should never stop striving for clarity of thought and precision of expression.
I would prefer my humanity sullied with the tarnish of science rather than the gloss of religion.

I think they secretly love the attention they get by being so outraged at Ca$h's antics. It always seems like a bit of chest-puffing righteous indignation coupled with look-at-me-ism by those who constantly berate him.

Personally, I'm surprised there hasn't been more outrage. I suppose people like dc just like the possible fortune cookie aspect of my posts.

Nah, probably not.

Except I don't think it was Dakar.





















I do a "select all" text click for all threads in the lounge now. It's amazing what people are missing.

Ya know, if we all used boobies in our sigs there's a chance we could turn things around.

Not a good chance. But a chance, nonetheless.

BTW guys, this cabbage thing isn't funny. Not in the slightest. Even Family Guy is funnier than this cabbage thing.

I'll let analog off on account of nationality and all that. The rest of you should know better.

Let's see if that makes the thread more interesting. lolz
Been inclined to wander... off the beaten track.
