Anonymous proxies are like pregnancies. They don't happen magically.

Apparently, you've never heard of the Virgin Mary.

I was waiting for that.

Let me put it this way, my children may have been created magically, but there were definitely two of us who thought we knew what we were doing.

You do not need to qualify.  One magic birth in millions over thousands of years hardly constitutes a random occurrence. I do not think it weakens your argument.

So you're saying that Hurry may be a Divine Incarnation attempting to screw our website?

Actually, the contrary.  I'm suggesting that just such a thing is highly unlikely...but not beyond the realm of possibility.

What he thinks he is and what the rest of the world thinks he is are two different things.

Thanks for the clarifications...

PS: Wargamer is not my site...just a place where i happen to be moderator.  ;)

Well then, respectfully, try doing some moderating. Aside from the personal and persistent attacks on grogheads and grogheads staff, you now have a neo-nazi posting racist drivel and there has not been a peep from anyone on the moderating staff.
Thing is that i spend most of my time here. When i am over there, i check what i see but as i said, i spend very little time there. Please pm me what you're referring to and i'll have a closer look, thanks.

just so we're all clear here, I'm going to edit to expand this one slightly:

You now have a previously-banned neo-nazi pedophile with an attitude problem who has been kicked off of at least 4 other strategy gaming sites returning to Wargamer and returning to posting the same racist drivel and the same trite, tired, and thoroughly-discredited conspiracy nutjob theories while simultaneously violently insulting anyone anchored in reality who dares to disagree with him and there has not been a peep from anyone on the moderating staff

did I miss anything?

Please pm me who you're talking about and i'll have a look. Calling someone a pedophile however is a very severe accusation and shouldn' be done lightly.

hahaha! Way to moderate Anguille.  Only problem is you're doing it here, and against the wrong people.

Well, I would admittedly be uncomfortable if I knew someone was posting while wearing only socks....

if you only knew.
Toonces - Don't ask me, I just close my eyes and take it.

Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

I dont think anyone is claiming pining and slaak as good friends so its fine to ban them.
in fact, slaak had a lifetime ban.  quite a few are surprised he surfaced at all.
