1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    LOL--with the speed that thread went by, I'm going to need you to beam the postings straight into my frontal lobe. If you can arrange this (and another 4-fold), I will pay any price. Tom

    funny though, other British members of the forum did not understand his humor either, perhaps they went to state schools?

    I wonder if he will join us again under yet another name. If so, his meltdown will be predictable.

    Alas, I missed the entire thread yesterday. Like globetrotter, look away for a second and miss the thread of the year.

    I was dissapointed in the way it went down.  For a while I felt like it was building up to a nice crescendo and Styleman would go out with both guns blazing.  Then he sort of backed off, made a ridiculous statement and went out with a whimper.

    This is the second time I have brought somebody down to banishment level.

    ALRIGHT.

    Jon.

    edit: Notice how this post is number 1812? Anyone else find that amusing?

    And here I thought I was the evil one for calling him an idiot, ha ha.

    I'm rather sad I missed the denouement of the thread considering how closely I followed it. Then again, I would probably have been banned along with Styleman if I had responded to his racial comment.

    It was very disappointing. I was looking forward to something better. Next world leader indeed.

    It felt like he just gave up and wanted to do something to get banned just to end the whole thing. He just couldn't bring himself to just walk away.

    My great great second grandfather, Tsar Alexander, thought it was a great year for our family despite the cold and lack of food at the villa. Now let's talk about the loyal serfs who live in the basement and why work is out of the question for families like ours.

    Sorry, Jon, don't start. Edit: Couldn't resist the historical bait.

    I was personally amazed at his horrific spelling, considering the outstanding education he must have received in one of England's finest private academies. Terrible communication skills, especially for one who regularly dines and socializes with men of global prominence. It's funny. For all his talk of the boorish manners of America, it seems our own private academies uphold much higher standards than the undoubtedly regal institution which he attends. Maybe in his English upper-class family, only the servants are required to attain any semblance of education. After all, when you are the second-nephew of the most powerful man in England, you must realize that work is for the peasantry only. Who needs language skills for a life of leisure and trolling?

    Well, I missed all of those posts.

    But don't judge a man by his spilling.

    Fine education is so much more. It should not be wasted on spellling. Nor math for that matter. It is a priviledge.

    It allows gentlemen, whose place in life is assured and not dependent on their spelling, to haunt salons, such as our esteemed SF.

    Remember, as Lord Byron said, "At four and twenty I had gamed and drank and taken my degrees in most dissipations."

    By most counts, I would guess that most of us are behind Byron's curve. It's the living we got to worry about, not the spelling. That's what an education is for.

    I'm so bummed, I never had the chance to ask the boy prince my burning question: "Have you ever run into Senator John Kerry in a New York restaurant?" It would explain so much... Bradford [​IMG]
