    Haganah is great. He has a lot of info and is very smart, but doesn't deal well with idiocy. Imagine manton with a different skillset and a lower tolerance and a saucier vocabulary.

    I don't know. I like a lot of what he contributes but he's gotten very nasty with me with what I believed to be minimal provocation. Then again, I might be one of the idiots you speak of.

    +1. I must be an idiot, as I've provoked his ire on more than a few occasions... and I'm sort of unsure why, and it quickly devolves to, quite literally, name-calling. Even in non-CE threads. [​IMG] I agree he's quite smart, though I have my disagreements with him, but I don't even bother to interact with him anymore because I can't get a genuine response that isn't simultaneously intended to belittle me.

    Given that he's been sent to the corner twice now in ~9 months, apparently I'm not the only one who feels that way.

    No, I wouldn't mean to imply that. I was thinking of a few specific discussions, so my comments should not be read too broadly.

    Can someone explain this term, where it comes from, and what special connotations it might have that make it applicable to that trainwreck of a thread?
    "Goat Screw: Ever tried to screw a goat? Neither have I. But imagine the commotion and confusion and you get the idea. See also, Cluster Fuck." Seems to come from Marine Corps parlance.

    I can't see "goatscrew" and not think "goatse." I'd post a pic, but that would land me firmly in randallr land.

    The thread basically looks like that, so yeah. Fitting.

    I wasn't sure on that part, but when you got to the part about how rich was so popular he gets 500 pms a week, I figured something was up. [​IMG]

    RJman was such a fixture and asset to SF that I miss him!

    This post might belong in "missing posters", but would someone tell me what happened to him?

    I haven't seen him around in a while.

    I believe Rach is [still] in Japan. He checks the forum from time to time, he posted in the fragrance thread and in SW&D a week or two ago.

    I think he should get his own smiley, one that gets pissed off, storms out and slams the door behind him, and then peers back in the door and eventually comes back in, only to get pissed and leave, again and again.
