“Maybe you aren't evil enough. They must have a barrier against thoses of the powers of good?”
“It's really not worth starting a fight over. They've all gotten sidetracked by Chelle's Monty Python and the Holy Grail reference. They've forgotten what the thread said originally.”
“Protataprober? Sounds like a cross between Dan Quayle and George W. competing at a spelling bee.”
so I forgot an "s"
“sue me like a chair.”
“Try posting as General N.A. Sty.
That should give you some credibility.”
“Ha! maybe I should give myself a promotion for that site- It's not like I ever really earned the rank of corporal anyway, what's a few fake stars here and there?”
oh boy oh boy oh boy
“gonna like this”
“Stikmon looked like he was about to whip the mojo on 'em... but he stepped on his tongue and broke his dictionary, LOL”
“I shall attempt to enlist the aid of our fellow wizards from the other board to help us in our battle against the Dark Lord...I think Dumbledor would want us to communicate and work with the wizards of other schools. We'll see how they take up the call of arms...I have sounded the alert.”
“sign me up!”
“seek out my companion "olftauron" in the other school of wizardry. He seeks to enlist the aid of other wizarding folk.”
“Do NOT FEAR, BUDDHA BEAR IS HERE!”
“I guess I don't quite get it after speed reading this thread and the backpacker.com thread.”
“'chelle, how many faces do you have? You're on this site saying, screw everyone on backpacker.com and then you're over there begging for free equipment?”
“Hey Corporal Nasty, who said what to who that got you started?”
“nothing got him started. what he said was only in good fun. he made one comment and the people took it from there.”
“Does the "other side" have "t-shirts?"”
“Actually they have a marketing division”
“I haven't posted over there in years. Ever since they used what I had written in one of their forums and quoted me in their mag out of context. A very bad assumption. Their mag has gotten fat and crappy thru the years since I first started buying into it. Its nothing but dribble and freaking ads, now.
Its been awhile since I've purchased one. But I do, maybe 1 or 2 times a year. If I can read a mag from front to back while taking a healthy sitting, it ain't worth the 4 bucks to have it sit on the toilet bowl.
Its definitely for the newbies in my book. Rehashing of old ideas and techniques. It needs a face lift. A new look. A new focus in order to keep me interested.”
“I posted this already on BB thread . .(after insulting him of course) . .
BUt . . .
I find that forum, and the way its organized, completely unreadable.
I don't read any other group sites so I don't really have a basis from which to judge . .but what's with that "tree" format . . .it stinks.
The simplicity of just posting at the bottom, and scrolling as you read seems so self evident.
THe other is unreadable. I can't even make head nr tails of it just to have fun and rag on them.”
“You can reorganize the display so it comes out somewhat like ours. Whether it makes more sense of not, you will have to be the judge. There are buttons on the upper right to make adjustments to the display.”
“It's the one that say "your settings/profile.
You have to be registered and signed in to see that tag.”
“There is a very good reason why I donít bother with that board very often.
What was the comment he made about your webshots, Cpl. Nasty?”
Thanks Geo. God knows I spend too much time here already . . .ain't gonna go to the effort elsewhere.”
