There, the I-35 thread is back as it was in our finest hour. As I said, eliminating post 2 quickly woulda done that thread a world of good, too late now, and the thread is thankfully dieing on the vine.
I'll throw this up to the masses, and take it for what it is intended: Of all the members who have ever posted in this forum, what do you think the administrator and hosts/mods had in mind when they asked the sometimes prudish edfreeman to moderate? What did they want? Or, what did they see in this forum they didn't want?
I'll do way less than you fear I will, trust me, likely just a big enough step away from nothing to keep the I-35 debacles suppressed and occassionally calling for a cease fire, especially when threads have degenerated or been hijacked into nothing more than a 20 post battle. That is all that I see to do. You enter a thread to take on some of our more reactionary members, I figure you know what you're getting into, must enjoy it, and who am I to deny you your right to the "terms of endearment" that will be attached. IMHO, suppressing that would go way too far, would ruin the BWOT experience, and I have no intention of doing that.
I appreciate the discussion and perspective.

How can I gratuitously inflate my post count without a 20 post battle?

I do consider it a personal insult.

Even more.
Some call for nuking everybody in the East which BTW for some reason could NOT ever be considered a "personal attack" but some people get their dicks zipped up in their zippers if anything about "ovens in Germany" is mentioned. I think that two-faced bigots should get permanent bans also.

OK, ed, we’ll see.

It just seems to me the only ones unhappy with BWOT are the mods.

And only if the administrator hadn't bitch slapped you with a brief suspension, you'd be well beyond my count by now!

I'm terribly unhappy, morose and offended -- all of which can be brought right with liberal application of money.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.
