Anyway I think I'm going to bed. The offshoots of the tropical storm are getting a bit more severe anyway so it's probably a good idea to shut my computer down. If Brent accepts I'll add him in the morning/after work.

Congrats again to all our new staff and I'm sure all of you will do a good job

people! You who gave them the power to make your decisions for you! While I’ll admit that
anyone can make a mistake once, to go on making the same lethal errors century after
century seems to me nothing short of deliberate. You have encouraged these malicious
incompetents, who have made your working life a shambles. You have accepted without
question their senseless orders. You have allowed them to fill your workspace with dangerous
and unproven machines. You could have stopped them. All you had to say was, ‘No.’” -V

^*Only just realised what "Congo rats" means .*

I'm most interested in the age and gender demographics, and if the cubans voted differently to the mexicans.

How do they taste, bearing in mind I've only eaten the 'normal' meats?

Do people even eat rats like that on the African continent? I thought rats were rats pretty much everywhere... but I have no idea.

Well, we had intended to weigh the positive votes against the negative votes, not as a direct +/- scale, but to see who would be less objectionable as a moderator according to the whole forum.

If two people had scored an 8, for example, but one was all positives and ambivalents, and the other was 16 positive and 8 negatives, the two would not be 'equal,' since the latter was more divisive overall.

Largely, this was entirely irrelevant, given the way the votes swung.

Congrats to the new mods, and huzzah to the Returners!

And I feel the real winner here is the forum itself. /cheesydialogue

I was absent due to several personal reasons. I did miss the vote myself.

Congratulations to those who won.












(( I just wish to state that I'm sad that so few had any faith in me.

Thanks to those who did. ))
