Oh please. You are starting to sound like a broken record. Comparing the flob to tealit is completely disingenuous and you know it. Just making a comment like you've just made would get your IP banned for life at tealit, and that's if you could even register for a membership in the first place. The admin is a very welcoming and forgiving chap, believe you me. The mods have a Herculean task keeping trolls, sockpuppets and spammers at bay to allow you and I the freedom to lay down our rants as often and as vituperative as we desire. You've broken many a rule (as have I) and are still welcomed herein. We get that you want to see the site fail. It's not going to, so deal with it and please stop calling out the mods on every action they make. You're becoming like the boy who cried wolf: When and if they do overstep their power, your criticism will be lost in the plethora of anti-flob rants you've made over the last year.

In the 12 years I've been on and off this site, you are the one poster I've always read. But I am less and less inclined to follow what you write these days. Gone is that acerbic wit and been replaced by mundane bitching. Pull up yer socks old salt. Bring back the old Sandman and leave the back-seat modding at the door. I implore you.

Got 3 days suspension as SuperSneekyCow was wasting my time by posting flame material and the angry responses that followed several times a day. 90% of any moderating in IP was revolving around his/her posts, there was a reason the now deleted SuperSneekyCow appreciation thread existed in the open forum. Stupid shit mostly, tried to PM a couple of times with no response and no change in posting style, so I have other things to do than run around clearing up after someone who shows no respect to either the people they are talking to or the mod who is trying to keep the tone polite.

If Obama had really meant "THOSE (things)" he'd have said "THOSE (things) and not THAT (business). And yes, I paid attention to the tone of voice, the body language and all that and what it screamed was "Lets pander to the EMOTIONS of these scared, angry, fustrated people."

Not that he didn't have an important point to make but quit showing respect to people with initiative and they'll lose initiative. Not good.

Supersneakycow is fresh and nutty. An old favorite with a new direction.

I think Supersneakycow is just pretending to be the caricature of a right wing crazy, and loving it. Me, not so much.

Whatever. My post got kudos from two of the people I respect most on this site, which tells me far more about how I'm viewed than a moan from a vested interest. I respect you too, of course, in matters other than flob affairs. As for "wanting to see the site fail," dude! You have an EXTREMELY misplaced view of the importance I give to the flob.

Really great video, I like this guy...though I fear for his heart health.

I hadn't seen the Romney ad... I find it amazing that a guy with his money can't hire actual actors to express outrage, lol. The whole thing came of as rehearsed and not sincere. "I..am..out.raged..." :lol: Mentos commercials are less cheesy

Whatever my vested interest be, you make people click. That is the end game of my interest, so my message here is not from that POV. More to the point would be my own guilty conscience over causing the mods so much trouble in the past. Chalk it up to the zeal of the newly anointed in that I was suggesting that we not second guess their every move with accusations of tealitishness.
