    hmmm. I'm not suggesting that you abuse your moderator powers or anything, but I do recall that some users tend to get timed out when they get tiresome or tendentious in their behaviour towards the modstapo. If, for instance, you chose to Time Out edina for some modest interval (say, a year or three), I certainly wouldn't raise a ruckus. <eleventy> And that's all I have to say about this.
    Timeouts are above my pay grade, and would be overkill in this situation anyway. I think it's just a few people fucking with me. I don't want them timed out, I just want them to stop making a big deal out of a little issue.

    ^that's pretty damn funny!

    hey, while I'm posting, can you guys do something about the rain in Houston: it's scheduled to rain this weekend and I really don't want it to. [​IMG] Can y'all time out the rain clouds or something?

    Thanks.

    I reckon I've been reading too many of Neo's posts. That young filly tends to talk all fancy-like with them hidden vowely-letters in his words.

    Lol, thanks but this is more Aggie-talk than t-sipper speak. My Longhorn cousins all speak in articulate, complete sentences. True story: for a couple of years I lived in Dumas, TX. Everybody there said 'dill' for everything. It was a universal word: noun, verb, adjective, etc. Two years later, right before I left, I realized they were saying 'deal'. This wouldn't ordinarily come up, except for around that same time a friend turned on me and broke my nose as a going-away gift. Some 11 years later I'm in a lab at A&M, and there he is. We introduced ourselves, and I SRSLY considered repaying him with interest for his impertinence, but I took another look and decided life had treated me better already, no point in pushing things.

    I wish you guys would shut the fuck up about this.
    Yes, I'm helping out with spam. Yes my name is on the moderator list. No, it doesn't really change anything. Can we end the discussion?


    I was just messing you. [​IMG]

    However, if you continue being so rude and curt in our IMs, my collegiality may stop.
