I like it that the forum is un-moderated generally, but without forsaking the option.
And if I could impose on a Joe-clone, I'd like to moderately alter my post above where I said "And calling people Brits". This joke would be better rendered "And calling people the B-word". This would seem at first to refer back to a discussion of "Bitch-slapping" but instead, then I say "Brits". Get it? Thanks.

And please do not interpolate a long empty space between the set-up "B-word" and the punch-line "Brits". The joke is not good enough to pause for, even with the changes, and should be simply tossed off, as if at full typing speed, maintaining an appearance of the casual and effortless wit for which, I think it's fair to say, I am generally known. Don't forget to then also delete this post and it's reference to the editing changes required to improve the previous post.

The proposed amendment will clarify the general spirit of the post, as a merely playful, albeit pathetic attempt to be amusing, and will therefore be less likely to give any actual offence to persons of the Brit persuasion, or to others who may mistake the tone and intention as purposefully rude. Thanks in advance if this correction can be accomplished.

Guest of Aug 23 at 1:03 PM seems to be under the erroneous impression that Martin Gibson is universally feared and disliked. I would like to remind him/her that he was correct when saying there's no such thing as a collective opinion, and I wish to take this opportunity to mention a few things I like about MG

He's very direct. He's not a phoney, or wishy washy, or insincere.
He's reliable, and consistent, and politically incorrect, which takes some courage. You always know where you stand with Martin Gibson. I don't agree with 99% of what he posts, but so what? What the hell, live and let live. There are other people who post here who irritate me more. If they can tolerate me, I can tolerate them.

As my very weird friend told me a few weeks ago when I was all upset about a woman who went off at me in a very intense and unexpected manner, "You gots to chew the meat, and spit out the bones."

It ain't always going to be prime rib.

Mention of The Smurfs made me think about the narure of this thread and its inherent contradictions.

You see one of my best mates is The Smurfs. He plays all the music and he does all the voices on their records. He is certainly the finest musician ant the cleverest studio engineer I have ever met, and a really nice cultured man. But all the gold discs on his wall are for being a Smurf - well maybe one or two others but certainly the most of them are.

Now some people see the Smurfs as garbage, a waste of the world's finite resources - Oasis won't even let them parody their songs. and yet some people obviously have derived much pleasure from The Smurfs.

I like the Smurf input into Mudcat - probably more than I do the anal music stuff.

I suspect I'm obnoxious on both counts. A good religious upbringing will do that for you.

You see brethren, Jesus had it about right when he said, he who casts the first stone, let him first remove Smurfs greatest hits from his own cd collection

Of MG He's not a phoney... or insincere.

Well, he has repeately said that he is precisely those things. I'd prefer to think that he's speaking the truth when he says that, and that the hatred is just an act.

but if someone tells you they are phoney and insincere, should you believe them? It's like the parodox of the Roman who tells you all Romans are liars.

I don't mind Martin G, and he's forthright and helpful when he decides to be. He does a stock bit to stir things up, but doesn't dress his unreasonable side up in long complicated pseudo-reason.

I wish I could say I personally knew the Smurfs. Maybe I will anyway. Maybe they could be in the movie of my life. I'm feeling a little blue.

I don't read every post by every member, and most of the time lately I don't even open more than 5 or 6 threads on any given day, not unless I have a project I'm REALLY procrastinating on, so if I'm wrong about the sincerity thing, oh well - my impression may not be based on the same experience you may have had, but even this illustrates my point -

which is - oh nevermind. Weelittledrummer has the best post on the subject. Good post, wld.

Dear Fred

However blue you are feeling - I think it most unlikely that bringing The Smurfs into your biopic could be anything but a subtraction from this upcoming film's undoubted merits.

Aim higher. One of the reason God gave us fingers was to switch off The Smurfs.

best wishes for happier moods

Many posts to this thread. Many opinions expressed. Much frustration, many good intentions & much humor. I love this place. I have gained much from my trips here. . . much BS & much useable info, along with a few pricked feelings. But I love this place!
There have been several similar threads over the years. They eventually fell of the board to gather dust in the threadcellars below. Those who posted to them were much as those who have posted to this one. . . intense, insulted, frustrated, tickled, humorous, happy.
Soon, this thread will join them in the dusty dungeons. And things will generally remain the same. This thread, as all its "ilk", is an exercise in futility. Only this, and nothing more.
However, I am compelled to say these following things:
MOAB was NOT created on a whim, LH!! It was created on a Fancy! Please get your facts straight before stating them as fact! Yes, I am sure you will argue there is merely a thin thin line between a whim & a fancy, but I agree! There is a thin line BUT THE LINE DOES EXIST!!
Some have said that Joe Offer is "obnoxious". Perhaps. . . but let none say that Joe Offer is an Igmo! He is not!
Amos, personally, I have always thought you bore a striking resemblance to Shatner in your wit & your writing style. Others have expressed this privately!
Thank you for the podium for this brief period!
My Mom thanks you, my pop thanks you & my ilk thanks you!

What do we do with them? Simple. Find out where they live. Hunt them down with torches and bloodhounds. Tie them hand and foot. Try them in a citizens' court. Condemn them to hideous torture. Strip them naked, flay them alive, make them watch "Gidget Goes Hawaiian" 85 times in a row, and then hurl them into a pit full of starving rats. If they survive, present them with either an accordion or a banjo, forgive them all their sins, and send them off rejoicing.

That oughta do it.

Give them a cork or a poke with a fork
Cuz this is the internet
I've got a lovely bunch of butt holes
They want so much for you to pay them mind
If you post, you're flamin' toast
Singing pucker sphincters up there back behind
Pucker up back there behind

Seriously, has anyone here NEVER been an asshole? Sure, some put more effort into it and seem to aspire to rectumhood, and those are the ones I really wish could be slipped some superglue Preparation H and force fed beans But assholes can be ignored (mostly) unless one actively tries to be involved in thread buggery.

So, what to do? I think you have to not engage with them; turn your back and walk away, or you stand a good chance of becoming one. Complaining IS engaging, BTW.
