    If you didn't read the article it's very er, interesting..

    Yuppers If I thought I would was going live this long, I would have taken better care of myself. I out lived my sister and my dad. They only made it into their 40ties. I figured that would be my fate also, but here I am 79 and still kicking. You are appreciated for what you do on the forum my friend. Helping on forums like TS is my hobby, and about all I can do with my health problems. Not complaining, glad to be here. I agree, this is a great forum for entertainment and information.

    With Valentine's Day approaching, what could be more appropriate than an Intimate, "dung beetle dinner for two"?

    They can just enjoy a free feast, without over extending their credit card balances. Ah, ain't young love grand? Granted water buffalo or gazelle poop must be an acquired taste, but couldn't sushi be considered in the same way.

    All these two really would need to consummate the moment, would be fine linen napkins, and a pair of tiny candlesticks.

    Happy Valentines Day you two:

    Hi I'm not trying to change the way staff observes posters on help forums. I'm just saying there's always two sides to every story, and you should listen to both sides before you make the decision to ban them before you hear their side. Now that will cause me problems here on TS, but what you see is what you get. I am who I am. That's the only way I know. There are also rules here on TS and you need to obey them. I will mess up occasionally and hopefully my posts will be deleted and hopefully addressed by staff and we will move on . That's my 2 cents tonight.. I can't believe I'm still awake tonight.

    Happy Valentine's day to you my friends. This thread has been more then I expected. I have enjoined it . Team work is a good thing IMHO. See you on the forum!. I'm thinking I have a lot in common with @captaincranky and that's scaring the Hell out of me

    Yeah OK. Why not wait until you've been hurt, before you start whimpering or making proclamations about it?

    That's the kind of preemptive annoyance that will get you into trouble.

    Being wildly off topic in pursuit of humor and laughter is one thing. Hysterically pontificating in advance of what is most likely a non-issue, along with how you feel the site should be operated, is quite another.

    Oops! I guess that's why your still here and I've got in trouble before. Didn't mean to pontificate how the site should operate . I'll behave now and go to bed. I'm a guest here and I will obey the forum rules. I was put on some kind of restrictions before , but that's all water under the bridge and I have moved on. Thanks @captaincranky You are very cranky but also very wise. I'm guessing that's why you have survived here on TS. Could you be a little less cranky. ROFL. It's OK if you pick on me. LOL. I'll take that as a good thing. See you on the forum friend!

    Hi friend There's only 3 of us logged on at this time. Why am I still here? I don't have a clue. I still can't post a screen shot or image like I can on other threads. LOL I tried to post a screen shot about only 3 of us on the forum. It didn't work. Good night my friend, Hopefully I'll see you tomorrow. Be careful. You may be my next hero here. Clicking on more options doesn't get the job done.:D

    I'm still around .I had to grab a few winks. I live in a god given time zone, while the rest of Canada is in the grips of a deep freeze .it's raining here .I love it..,
    I don't know about you guys ,but I been run out of nice places before, by nice people even,.if anything a slap in the complacency will only make us that much wiser. much like yourself though only a pup still, I have a host of health issues, that only helps to reinforce my demeanor,
    I would have used the name Cranky but it was taken, upload images to photobucket or something like that I guess.then use the URL. though clicking on your link did work.just had to put it in the correct box,
    No need to be afraid ,what can possibly happen to you now that hasn't already happen ,me as well .
    happy valentines Day to all.

    There are elephants in the room you're ignoring. The biggest, fattest one, is the fact they've basically already heard "your side of the story".
    That happened when you hit, "post reply".

    The second elephant, is you taking credit for taking this thread off topic. If anybody took it, "off topic", it was me. But if you think about it, the topic simply begged to go down the rabbit hole I chose to enter. "Poop for dinner again, dear"? Said the Muskonaut to his wife., and so forth. Which by the way, "Muskonaut", Wiyosaya gets full credit for that one liner.

    The third elephant is the fact that, the policies you're espousing, are already in place. If someone makes a bad post, it's removed, and a member's direct reply to it is removed as well.

    Now, neither you nor I can constantly start nonsense threads, or post constant cheer leading, back slapping doggerel, concerning your goals for yourself, or the site. It doesn't belong to you or I, it belongs to Julio France. He's been successful at piloting it for many years, and I have no doubts he'll be able to do so for many more years, without your help

    Which leads me to the following conclusion, you're a manic-depressive, you're extremely lonely, you have a constant need to be at the center of attention, but can't figure out how to craft a plan to go with your goals. All of which have an extremely high annoyance factor. You've already been forgiven for all of those forgoing traits, but I sincerely doubt that will happen again.

    Please consider the little, "time out" you were given, as a last warning, and the need for such action in the future, will likely result in a permanent ban.

    The main point you simply cannot grasp, is that this "News & Comments", is first an Op-Ed forum, but beyond that, it's an internet gathering place where people can talk, laugh, and socialize. You can't expect to be taken "seriously" about your goals, when there are really no goals to achieve. And as for the "tech help forums", you need to be qualified to help before you can help. But you need to be qualified on your own, and not here trying to recruit others to do it for you.

    Now that I know your age, I can safely speculate about, and forgive the fact you may even be getting a bit doddy. No harm, no foul, it's happens to all of us in time. It's not until it interferes with your ability to communicate and get along with others, that it becomes an issue.

    Now please consider this post carefully, and accept it as an observation and some suggestions going forward. It's not a put down, I'm just holding up a proverbial mirror, for you to reflect in.

    ROFL Boy I'm sure you feel good now. Picking on a old man. Is that the best you have? I'm betting heavily that you live on the West Coast. I think we have taken over this thread and now's a good time to end our little silly bashing each other. I really don't remember bashing you, but cutting down people is not my style. I consider you a student of Don Rickles.

    PS I was able to add a youtube. Yea!

    I did it! I found this thread's theme song:


    You just have to change the last line of the chorus from"

    "Won't you please take me along for a ride", to:

    "Here, have some poop, for the ride".

    All together now.......

    The guy playing the sax is a farting genius.

    That said, I agree the Muskonauts would need stock their cargo holds with:
