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.

    Cheers,

    Yes, and it's getting tiresome. It's like some 5th grade prank. Grow up.

    Yeeeeeesh calm down. Is it really that upsetting to you to think you're clicking a real link and being redirected to youtube? It's a joke.

    ah, glorious schadenfreude!

    On a serious note however their absence has allowed SF to be quite readable the past few days. In threads were personal attacks would have normally broken out by now (like the Catholic Church thread on the CE forum); the discourse has been quite polite and adult. And while, yes there are of course disagreements, everyone has stayed inside the zone of proper etiquette and care. I dare say that SF is more viewable today than it has been since time immemorial.

    If I wanted viewable, I'd go to nytimes.com or the wall street journal.

    I did not find that Ed or Connie made reading SF difficult or unpleasant. That has nothing to do with whether they should be on leave for some offense or another, but if people are keeping track of who thinks their absence has made SF a better place, don't count me.

    Or me. In fact, I found the first 3-4 days relatively boring (then again, I spend all my time in the bottom half of the forum). Now since the Spitzer/Catholic stuff has picked up, it's interesting, but I do not think SF is bette rwithout them.

    You have to think of the amount of nonsense they perpetuate...and the fact that they do so in every sub-forum, every day of the week. And which leads others to post about it, and soon enough you have the mods sending PM's en masse regarding topics like teh ghey (I wasn't included in the PM dear mods, but I did acquire a copy of it) and people being put on time out; and then getting extended time out because they cannot control themselves or their shenanigans.

    I wish, but unfortunately I have yet to procure some from Labelking, nor do I think he would so easily part with it.

    On another serious note, on the weekends when you don't post on SF, the douchebag quotient takes a serious nosedive. Alas, I dare say that your return to posting invariably restores the high level of douchyness to the forum.

    Simple thoughts written out by a simple man. Calling me such titles only projects on to you what you invariably are but fail to admit, your post that I am quoting being sufficient evidence. And while I admit I have in the past crossed the line, the two aforementioned posters have crossed more borders than the people of Switzerland.

    What are the Christians so fond of saying? Oh, yes: let he who is without sin cast the first stone.

    hmmm... are you having a softy brain day?

    You complaining about
    - personal attacks (see above your response to EL)
    - nonsense posting (see most of your posts)
    - improper etiquette (see your Allah Uaqbar comment)
    - PM sending (we all know, you know?)
    etc...

    is ironic
