And for further clarification, I'm not trying to be a rabble-rouser. I just have thoughts that I tend to share. They're not always popular thoughts, but honesty has always trumped popularity to me; so I ask questions that some might not want asked. Try not to hate me... too much.

Hate you?? Quite the opposite. I like that you're not afraid to challenge. If no one asks the less than popular questions, we'll never get any answers.

Keep it up my friend.

I suppose it's a "cross that bridge when we come to it" kind of scenario.

It's safe to say that you've done a good job so far.

Well, I'd still have Luminon. Drinking Beverage

It seems to me you're the reason he sticks around. It's kind of like you're Batman and he's Joker. You both need each other to exist.

Or should I have said you're the Joker? Consider

Done it once already, and I'll do it again if it's what's best for the forum.

Plus a plan for adding a co-admin is in the works. That way I am not a "dictator" so to speak.

Just curious.

Most wouldn't have a fucking prayer of lasting here. They would quickly be reduced to tears muttering something about "silly childish intolerant fascist vulgar barbaric human trash garbage" (had to use the search function to find that gem from the late, not so great AbdelZ Wink ).

He's done it once already. Evil clown that took up the mantle didn't like the job any better than Stark does. It's a thankless task.

All opinions are welcome here. There's no question which can't be asked. Those which require introspection are especially useful.

There's nothing scarier than a dictator who doesn't recognize humor ... Laughat

Where's that irony font I keep asking about?

Pretty sure there's always someone vulgar logged on here, Celt. Wink

I found it for you once already. I agree it's not particularly visually satisfying.

How did I post that post? Very funny stuff.

But, yeah, I think we need something with more oomph.
