Nah he's generally right about the distinction between stuff that's just usual internet flotsam and well meaning but badly timed and poorly executed jokes. As it goes pinhead isn't that bad, occasionally one of his stupid jokes is funny, so it's a bit like Sanshou. Likewise, Jerome is far more fun when he's balanced neatly on the edge of meltdown like he has been for the past few weeks. One more dead nigger and I think he'll blow.
The usual flotsam ruins the rest of it. Tr is a pretty good mix of brainy types and decent types, socially different on many levels, but generally pretty well spirited. Like I say, people choose with their feet, and those guys are generally satisfied with their SteveF fixes with or without Socrates to Gurdjieff up the evolution debate.

okay, I see your point but the partures of teh interwebz have an agenda and banning them usually fuels them (27 socks to the same address, hello say proxy cutter with me) while ignoring them causes them to go limp.

maybe it would be different here but I doubt it.
up my privileges and make me official tr sock detection system

I barely bother with the science and Evo threads now because people like parture and Socrates keep shitting them up.

On of these days I reckon I am going to get hammered one night and the following day there will be a debate as to whether we restore his account from the database backup or not.

if you ever get tired of your staff position, you seem to have a pretty reasonable idea how to go out with a bang

But as our lord Jesus Christ said: "thinking about purging someone's account and ip banning them is the same as actually doing it"

Well then you've already got nothing to lose so you should fuck her senseless at the first opportunity.

I like JB's idea.
It's good for us, good for Parture (since people will actually look forward to his posts) and good for college football.
What's not to like?

Token?
Really?
You consider yourself to be a token?

Which token? I always choose the Top Hat and if I don't get it, I will take the battleship and poke out somebody's eye with it. That usually works.

How about you? Before about 1952, the tokens included a purse, but that one is probably too obvious. How about the Scotty dog? That is kind of gay. But maybe not gay enough. Is the iron too cliche? Maybe I should contact one of my homosexual friends and get his opinion.

super is so horrible at being gay that he'd probably pick the manly sportscar.

Yeah, I thought about that but I didn't want to suggest it and fuck up the experimental results. Remember kids, SCIENCE is everywhere.
