Do you have a ping anyone when you ZOT? I know it's probably weird but I kind of enjoy the Zots!

The moderators have no involvement with programming. Let's ask John.

Being a Marquette Fan I liked the one eariler in the day that stated Marquette kicking Kentucky Butt in Great 8 !

I can see now how that may be too vain and offensive to some KY fans.

You forgot one.

ROTFLOL! You're right. How could I forget that one?

Hmmmm... Maybe this gives us a clue as to whether you're a male or female. Lemme think on that one a minute.

Sorry, they happen so often (maybe 10 a day), and usually we have 20 other things going on at once. Of course, Zots seem to happen when only one moderator is here. But, we can't stop others from creating one............

I could be a male, doing the sexist thing. Or possibly a female and understand those emotions. You decide.

Would you please make up your mind already?

I have, honest. This is the last time, Mr. Kehoe, I promise But I sure wish I could get that original sign-up date of 4-10-1998 attached to this name. Do you know any computer whiz studmuffins around here who could do me an itsy-bitsy favor?

she kicked the bucket and is using Nupress again, okay?

I tried using Nupress. It caused sleeplessness and water retention, though it did really seem to help my headaches.

Thank you for not treating my articles on UPI as vanities. I do not post them here until they are on the wire and the final text is official. Occasionally, such as last week, they have a dollop of humor.

Cordially,

Congressman Billybob

Latest column, now up on UPI, and FR, "The A-MAA-zing War Wizard"

Latest book(let), "to Restore Trust in America."

Have you considered a revival of your freeper addict thread? It's a FR classic, and with the number of new posters, it might be worth a revisit.

This is about the best I can do. I'm much too lazy to reformat it or anything. ;-)

thanks, I read it, good one! I still like "AM I logged on"? And one where some girl one day said something was wrong with the sun and yet another where someone said white stuff was falling from the sky (after the anthrax attacks)! There have been a great many funny ones here! Love this place!

You are wicked and evil. May a thousand sand fleas find their way to your bed tonight.

Just so the newbies can get to know you better, I'm posting a list of the educational and scholarly threads you started in the year 2000.  And this just covers the first 3 months.

Ever consider not allowing posting for some period (30 days) after signing up? Or, a posting ban (again say 30 days) for posters who continue to post vanities and/or duplicates?

I don't think I've ever told you this, but I think you have one of the best screen names here

Well, Golly! I'm blushing here. LOL! That's funny. I don't even like my name very much, but every time I think of changing it, I decide that I don't want to lose my identity, so I keep it. There was a thread once about "favorite screennames" and I saw that someone mentioned mine. That was kind of cool!

Actually, I've always liked *your* name. It's very clever!

That was back when I cussed a lot.

I'm glad to hear you've given up cussing, lol. You're funny!

HEY, that "pro-panties" thread raised serious constitutional questions to the conservative scholars here, the very heart and soul of this forum. By the way, didn't I post an article during that time period about the fake nipple fashion craze?

"You guys REALLY need to rename the General Interest forum the Chat forum................ Many people, especially new members, have NO idea where to find the illusory Chat forum."

I agree. I am far from being a newbie and everytime they would refer to the chat room I would go looking and never found it.

Geeez! who would have known General Interest= Chat.
Not me for sure:-)

To The Moderator:

Here's a suggestion: Wrap your itching fingers around a cold beer and leave the keyboard alone. I'm tired of having a thread I'm interested in relegated to "Lock" or "Moved to Chat", for a very simple reason. By the time that I get on board here, I don't want to have to search for a "Previous Thread" which may very well be 500 or so lines down the ladder.

I have limited time available, and I don't wish to use it scrolling, and scrolling, scrolling, and scrolling, scrolling, and scrolling, scrolling, and scrolling, scrolling, and scrolling, scrolling, and scrolling, ....etc.

Get the picture?

Respectfully submitted,

Yooper

Well, far be it from me to defend the moderators, but when they lock or move a thread, it almost always has a link to either the original thread or the "chat" forum.

No searching is necessary. Just click on the link they provide.

Something that concerns me is that these are particularly stressful times and we are being bombarded with information on the war. This is important. I don't think there will be any disagreemant about that. But because the tension is so high, so is the need for humor to release some of it...kinda like letting off steam from a pressure cooker. If humor threads are all relocated to chat, they are never even seen by most FReepers, myself included and what makes some of those threads so great is the boundless wit of FReepers. I hope you will allow some leeway on this.

We try to link a duplicate thread to the original. I think the problem is, if you post to a deleted thread, you will see it in your self search. But, if you haven't posted to a deleted thread, you don't know it was posted. In general, we don't delete duplicates if it's more than 5-6 hours apart. Sometimes, a topic is so hot, we see 10-15 posts of the same article within a short peroid of time.

So, what you're suggesting is, instead of deleting a thread, we should lock it so you can find the original faster. Locking a thread will allow you to see it in the 'threads' page, and allow you to follow it to the original thread. Maybe this is something we can impliment immediately. I'll post it to the moderator area for discussion. I will also let you know what we decide. Thanks for your input.

Actually, if Freepers would simply learn to check out the chat forum on a regular basis, instead of deeming it a banishment to Siberia, it would work fine. The chat forum is no harder to get to than checking for new posts.

General Interest or 'chat' was designed specifically light hearted type threads.
