The First thing is : you people post too damn much.It's taking me too long to read all this drivel, and there'e just too many members. Even Merritt's board has picked up activity and members, and it CERTAINLY takes too long to wade thru THAT bullshit. I shall henceforth be attending only to the House Atreides board.
I went to the LittleBigTown last night for the Sons Of Confederate Veterans Christmas Banquet, in full dress regalia and sabre. I received a beautiful plaque for some of the things I did this year, but, as I had been drinking early in the day, was too toasted to say much - actually teared up a little. (Pictures were taken, Chig, but the ones I've seen so far are terrible - little digital cameras inside a large area with lots of decorative lights. However, I will try to get one that's not too bad and post it, so you can see my Western Theater Dress Butternuts.)(And before you people start, "Butternut" is a color, a light tan, the color the Confederates wore in the Western Theater)(perverts.)
Afterwards, a few of us went to the historic downtown area, in full dress, and drank until we were tossed out, which in this part of the world is 2am. (Sabers were drawn at various points in the night)
I said all that to say this : I got home sometime after 3am, and found this:

Can we please, as a community, move past this kind of idea, the "OMG if this was in KJA/BH's work you'd be screaming blue murder" thing?
The truth of it, at least for me is: &etc.
I read this over no less than ten times. I started an angry, drunken response, then thought better of it, because I still did not understand the point. (BTW, Schu, if I ever do attack you unnecessarily in a drunken fit, I apologise now. Not saying that it will happen, but there is always the possibility.)
So I am glad I did decide to just pass out in the hallway instead of posting last night. I had assumed, given your participation Over There, that you were familar with this board.
Schu wrote:Nope, but maybe I should have made a new thread in DN.
Right. And coupled with your "What Rankles" post, I think I now have an idea of where you are coming from.

I fucking typoed the fucking topic title, and I know DAMN WELL
that can't be fixed ! FUUUCK !
Omph, delete this whole ill-advised drunken trhead, and I'll try again later
I participate in quite a few php boards where as the topic starter you can
edit your original subject line. Is that not possible here?
Yes, you can. I didn't know that - other boards I've dealt with can be edited everywhere BUT that topic line. I had originally typoed "Shut Up, Bryon". Omph changed it to "Farok's Arm", and once I realised I could change the title, did. I intended this to be a "Shut Up, Byron" Thread, posting Merritt's comments that would elicit that response. (That was also part of the rant I did not post last night - I wasn't talking about Frank's "inconsistencies" or that controversy, I was more pointing out Merritt's bullshit attitude.)

(Orthodox HerbertarianS) (???)
That, my friend, would make too much sense.
(I think/hope he used "OHian(s)" to point out how stupid "OH'er" is. )
OH is the proper noun, OHs is the plural version. case closed.
I agree with this, and have for some time. I also like "The OH" as a collective plural, or whatever, altho I know it wouldn't be grammatically correct. Whatever, anything but "OHers".
Have goodday, chilluns !
