Perhaps, I'd say they were ably assisted by BB and Volkswagen Boy with a late innings drive by strafing from yourself and Cal Coffee. BB needed to drop the "Floyd owes money to the rich guys that LA talked into donating to FFF" argument quite some time ago. It is a non winner.

the termination of that thread was a mercy killing. 115 pages of the same crap? there weren't more than 30 reasoned, thoughtful, intelligent responses in the whole bunch (coincidentally the number of posts i had)

while there was some really funny stuff in it, it's time to let this one go.

Oh, I'm not questioning the closing, only the wording of what would be required to reopen.

No coincidence patrick!

Hugh - you're right. What I should have said is that when news pops up, or someone has a fresh insight on the matter, they should make a new thread.

Because maybe we don't see those two postings you complained about as so bad?

And maybe we didn't answer earlier because we had other things to do, like work or take a child to the doctor or something -- you know, like real life stuff, as compared the fantasy world within this forum?

Who the **** say this is a fantasy world? so all mods were busy is what you are trying to tell me? ..That particular poster has been known to troll time and again and how long will he be able to continue? you should read some of his post when you are not at the doctors or work or something.

And this being a Gt time, i would imagine at least one mod to be online. Is that too much to ask?

Yes. We all have full-time jobs/obligations outside of the forum. Yes, the forum is one of the duties for which I am paid by Future, but even I have days off, like today.

We simply do not have the manpower to cover the forum 24 hours a day.
