    Hmmm...take out the brand-name reference, and this may be sig-worthy.

    I'm not a smart man, StyleForum, but I do know what spam is.

    Actually, I think the brand name is essential to convey that an elegant life requires Uggs.

    You know, you're probably right.

    iknow you guys catcha lot of crap. but i was talking to a friend the other day about online communities and how to develop them. I've been involved in them since the late 80s (actually edited for Prodigy back in dial-up), and I've got to say that this is probably the best-run forum i've seen. it's a really tricky balancing act allowing freedom but limiting stupidity and you guys do a great job. Though I sometimes see things that make me shake my head, i'm also afraid that repressing that would result in a much duller forum. there is something about the internet that does encourage the worst behavior ... even in the mystery reading one I was a member of, you'd get those old ladies who loved cat mysteries and they could be absolutely vicious. Picture Conne post-menopause.

    These sentiments are signs of an impending nervous breakdown, or a very significant bowel movement.

    Be prepared for either. If both, well, sayonara.

    So if a hypothetical forum member was to celebrate Independence Day by creating a hypothetical thread entitled "America, Fuck Yeah", would a hypothetical moderator be so anti-American as to lock said thread?

    Very likely but due to profanity in the title, not because of anti-Americanism (or at least that how that particular mod will claim).

    You know who else would say that? The terrorists.

    I'm not American. Neither is Fok. Passing out punitive measures wouldn't bother us in the slightest.
