OMG! Look at Mulgrew! She weighs more than any two of the others combined! Never could stand the show when she was “Captain.” Her voice irritated the H outa me!

I only know the original series....I've never watched the others.Spock,Bones,Scotty,Uhura and Checkov made that show.Kirk,to me,was always a minor player.Yoeman Rand was also important...as eye candy.

Exactly.

Kate Mulgrew was major, major hotness in Throw Mama From the Train.

Too bad she was in it for about five minutes.

Mulgrew does not count. Anything with her on captain’s list ceases to be “collectible”.

The posts and thread in question were deleted, so we have to have the going away party here, the site of the zottee’s last post.

OK, but his FReep page

http://www.freerepublic.com/~turnto/

shows he is unzotted. Unless he has some sort of reverse humblegunner undeleted, unzotted type of FReep page psych-out going on.

Or maybe it’s so zot-worthy, the mods are gonna “undead” it and zot him again.

Therefore I am in before - during - and/or after the zot.

Woo Hoo!

For those who didn't see it last night, ex-poster turn-to posted a conspiracy-oriented thread aimed at Mormon religious practices. The overall tone of his post was giggly, with an implied, "look at how weird these Mormons are" tone.

This close to the election, one has to wonder what on earth possessed him to post something like that. It was destructive, and the lightning was well deserved.

Good job, everyone!

Hmm....

Turn_to, I hope you learned something from that hide scorching you got last night. You know, you actually exhibited the color of the enemy with that post. Not good this close to election day, especially with so much on the line.

Carry on.
