I mean for Pete's sake, we be-did discussing semenated coffee lakes and oceans of bacon a while ago. This be just a different kind of random to cope with. :)

And that did be after we created, schism'd and mostly rectified an entire religion.

I do just be saying this thread do be weird, even notwithstanding any reckoning which may or may not be happening.

Not complaining, it has certainly lightened this th.read up a bit.

There's a long history there that I cannot dig up because I don't recall the original titles for it.

Long story short, this annoying poster appears, annoys people, and then has the greatest idea ever

A single, glorious week wherein the Mods do whatever the fuck they want.

It evolved to basically giving out titles and filtering words rather than.. y'know.. locking the entire Mafia subforum like I did because they begged us not to.

It was also originally in late February, but kept backsliding and now seems to have a happy home as a ramp up to an April Fools joke.

...

Also, the annoying poster became a pretty cool guy, then left the forum. Shame, as.. like I said, he became a hepcat coolguy who was a pleasure to have around.

Sleep deprivation combined with the decline of the English language in this forum is taking its toll, and so I think now might be a good time to bow out and get on with the rest of my life (for a day or two at least).

Before I go I just wanted to thank everyone who has helped make the past week so enjoyable. It has been a pleasure lurking with you guys / you people / y'all ?
