    Grapeshot's amazing powers

    I knew of the man's formidable intellect and insight, but had no idea he had the power to burst through cyber walls and locks and comment in a thread that had been locked for three days.

    This and other magical powers I have witnessed had long ago convinced me that he was one of our secret mods. I didn't say anything at the time, but, when he bumps a locked thread, the cat's kinda gotten free of the bag.

    Wow. So what? Grape's post are generally worth reading, imo. That he has The Force is another story...but then I think Eye is Darth Vader in drag...:>

    I make it a point never to pick on anybody whose avatar is a six pound brass napolean.

    10,000 posts Citizen, way to go! I'm shooting for 1000 Moderator edits because I spoke harshly of the cops or compared someone to a Sturmabteilungsman.

    I can always tell when he moderates me, as opposed to the others. He is generally more level-headed.

    When I moderate a post, I am always careful to note that it was done by ADMINISTRATOR of which I am the only one.

    If it is noted as being done by a Moderator, then that was one of our other mods.

    Looking at the moderation, I can tell it is different people too. The styles are different. I do appreciate the fact that John, and apparently Grapeshot, tend to take the time to explain why the moderation.

    Well he doesn't have to bother with me. I know when I'm talking mean about the men in blue--with the Lightning Flashes on their arms...

    Comparison understood and disallowed under the rules.
    Direct reference to a certain time and place inappropriate.


    Why, I was just quoting a popular song of the '30s with direct historical impact today...I hope you didn't have to use the German-English translator....

    This forum is undeniably given over to elitism and boot licking. I've nearly run out of use for the place.

    I truly wish I could just get banned already. I regret every penny I contributed. I don't regret contributing to legal defense funds, but the money I gave to OCDO was like shooting myself in the foot. Keeping abreast of these needs is the only productive use this place serves.

    I wish there were a global delete button so I could remove every message I ever posted here. I feel like a fool for having cast so many pearls before such swine.

    If that is what you truly wish, PM John or Mike. I am sure that accommodating your request would require minimal effort.

    Personally, I love this place. It and ALOC are the most useful message boards I have ever posted on, with realistic and effective levels of moderation.

    Please allow me to explain to, hopeful, clarify any misunderstandings. I have no problem with Grapeshot, just the opposite. I have always found him to be eloquent, informed, and patient in his posts(even when I didn't agree with him). I simply found it humorous that he had outed himself as a mod. by his actions. I may not always agree with Grapeshot's point of view, but I do respect him. The words I would use to describe him(and I'm sure he won't agree with it) is "statesman like". If the impersonal limitations of the Internet post have in any way skewed my intent, then I offer Grapeshot my sincere apologizes.

    Grapeshot has many pearls of wisdom and I enjoy his posts, sometimes our opinions may vary but I have much respect for him. I also respect the fact he outed himself as a mod. that tells me a bit about the honor he has I don't think he did it on "accident"

    I like Grape, though I am certain the feeling is not mutual.

    I don't hate anyone. Please don't misrepresent my feelings. You don't know them at all.

    I hate some actions. I hate some ideas. I don't hate people.

    The point simply is that, if you want your account turned off, just ask for it, no drama necessary.

    All the best to you.

    I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do those things to other people and I require the same of them.

    And it only took you nearly 4.5 years to come up with that "difficult" decision. Talk about wishy washy.


    Bye, have a nice life elsewhere.

    Lighten up. When I'm serious about comparing neo-fascists to the original product and you don't like it, feel free to jump in. When I'm kidding around to get the Administrator's goat, I'm joking. As to "Die Horst Wessel Lied," I've always thought it had good lyrics, but you couldn't dance to it.

    Here you go with the Nazi comments in another thread!
    And the same song at that.
    Remember what you said about "anyone can google it", you seem to be the only one googling it....and requoting it throughout the forum..
    I'm starting to worry about you buddy.
