It wasn't just you that chose to keep their head stuffed up their arse using that comment.

Good point. I will in future issue refrain from using this phrase. Thanks for respecting the letter of the rules.

Well, if you used the phrase, does that mean it isn't against the rules?

Sorry, didn't catch the teasing. The Internet has been extra-internetty lately.

I find all this talk of pie and cake offensive!

I have deleted yet another "political" thread (quotation marks used because a more accurate description would be "excuse to inflame the electorate."

That's the last one that gets deleted. After that, I will use the button we mods see as a little bomb with the fuse lit--which deletes the thread and the account of the original poster, plus his or her history.

It would be really cool if we could see said bomb once initiated and the offender's name.

I just hope I'm around to see it and not the victim of said bomb.

From our Wikipedia page (under "Memes"): Flounder: a person or post that pushes a political ideology, but doesn't necessarily add to the thread or topic - a type of political rhetoric spam. Based loosely on the National Lampoon's Animal House character.

The "not-a-flounder" refers to floundering topics with "not a flounder" in the title, or floundering posts containing that wording. You can say a thing is not a thing all day long, but if it walks like a flounder and quacks like a flounder, it probably is. When in doubt, all ties go to the house.

Also, if you're coming at this under "rules of engagement"--i.e. adversarially--you might want to reconsider. It's supposed to be fun for all involved.

Margie

Wow, I learned where Flounder comes from today!  Never caught the Animal House reference before.

I looked for this thread to recommend that any person that starts a political thread gets the ban hammer, at least for a month as a warning, for the first offense. It seems that the rules are in place but not being followed. Since it took about ten years of me bitching about politics and religion before that happened I figure if I start bitching about this now...

Oh please. You have to be aware that no one any longer starts a “political” thread. It’s a slippery slope, and here’s a hint: What we’re actually going for is enough restraint to ensure civility. We’ve mostly achieved that, so relax. Good night and have a wonderful weekend.

Margie, Happy New Year!!! thank you for your  forethought and civility in these contentious times that we (myself included) could so easily  escalate a seemingly innocuous post to another plateau to make one's eye's bleed ....hoping that you do not  succumb to the to the diatribe that currently surrounds all of us.......You an Tim be always in my prayers.......peace out B

I'm only curious because it was both swift and severe, the way my Phyc 101 professor claimed punishment was supposed to be, and I am a huge ECM fan as a result.

Glad to see another person added to ECM's fan base. She certainly deserves it for all she does on the forum.

I've always been a fan. She's like the awesome cousin who I always wanted to meet in person but haven't been able to yet that I still brag about to strangers.
