    Re: Things you hate because they're pointless and stupid - continued.

    @ the Pat Condell vid: THAT ought to be in the "Things You Love" thread. Excellent verbal takedown - I agree with every damn word. Thanks for introducing me to this fellow, JM.

    A zealous, vigilant community makes mods happy (I suspect that's not your goal though, you spoony bard)!

    The "alert" sfx on my laptop is very low-key. If I'm not sitting at my desk, I can't hear it. Occasionally I leave my laptop on my nightstand when I go to bed, but only if I have a clear calendar the next day. Forum responsibilities have to remain a very distant second to real life responsibilities. Once upon a time I did try to "do it all," but that story has a pretty rough ending.

    There have been times when I've considered putting in for a co-mod, but there's two problems: 1) I'd need somebody who could cover the hours that I'm inactive, which means I need someone from overseas; 2) if we didn't have a perpetual spambot problem, it would be a waste. Under normal circumstances, I'm happy running OTF solo. Even if the traffic in this section was heavier, I'd still be perfectly content running it myself. For whatever reason, due to the theme of this sub, the personalities that gravitate here and the more volatile topics that come up, it just seems like things run smoother if one person is "in charge".

    Now I'm rambling. I hate it when I do that.

    Damn it Dredd, I hate when you ramble. Where's a mod when you need one?

    I already do enough rambling as it is and am still pretty longwinded (failed to cut down on that this year), so please don't you start aswell!

    I'm reading the OTF regularly and zap all ad bots I see, I even merge them into an invisible sticky, so I have something else than deleted threads on page 1 (which still appear for mods). I just won't interfere in arguments between forum members, although I'm sometimes very tempted to do so. In urgent cases, I still act to some extent if it happens when everybody knows that I'm watching. That must be enough .

    I must be reading the wrong threads because I have no idea what you're talking about. Tell you what though - if you ever feel a ramble coming on, you can always come bug me. We can ramble at each other and spare the others.

    Thanks to you I still have a full head of hair and most of my marbles.

    If you're still interested, I'd be more than happy to add your name to the pool. We're not really looking to bring in new mods at the moment, but we inevitably need new blood from time to time. It's nice to have a list of potential volunteers - makes things easier.

    Thing is, I certainly don't "Love" Condell or Joe Lieberman, just as I didn't "Love" Hitchens. They're people who I am ethically opposed to who I have (the utmost?) admiration for - unlike Dawkins, who I consider a self-promoting prat.

    It's always nice to know you're wanted, even if it is just by a bunch of middle aged balding guys on the internet.
