Welcome Stewart, O Senior Moderator

Congratulations, Stewart. I'm sure that you'll instigate some great changes for the forum.

Thanks MC. I hope that we'll see some great changes to the forum in the near future. Ideally we'll see an upturn in the membership too as it becomes a friendlier place in which to discuss books and more. :)

An upturn in the membership! You've got 6,300 already!

Incidentally, on Palimpsest we occasionally go through and weed out any obvious spambot members who have joined (or those who never validated their membership etc). Might be a big task for this size of membership though.

I like to get rid of non-posters too. If nothing else, they're using up names that other people might like to use. Name squatting is plum rude.

Litany, you're posting more often now than you did the last time you 'visited'. Are you staying this time, or will you disappear again just when I'm getting used to laughing at your posts again?

I have no forseeable plans for a scarper. It looks to me as though any issues I had with the forum have now been fixed and it's a nice place to play again.

Really? Well, it's great to have you back. Although I'm actually uncertain (confused, actually) about our new senior moderator's policies towards spam, I'm sure it'll not spoil our fun (sorry, my fun).

Although I have to say I've quite moved on from thinking any posts pertaining to Hobnobs funny (I've tried it, btw, but they don't have the chocolate ones here).

I'm sure Stewart will reveal his terrifying plans in due course and send in the robotic death squads to maintain his rule and punish the infidels. Fear ye not.

Would he do that? :eek: Funny, he's always seemed so mild mannered before:D

I've not read the membership agreement, to be honest. I don't think I need to, cause all I want to do here is to learn and have fun. Oh, and spam.

Plus I may not understand it. :)

Ah, that explains it. I knew that rubbish truck didn't dump that crap outside my house *by accident*. I just hadn't realized how seriously the moderators take to their responsibilities.

Yeah, I missed you too, Freya. How's the beard?

Damn. You and Litany are not twins, are you? When I see one, I see the other. Next thing I know RaVeN will post and tell me he misses me, and BillyO will come whinging about cats with ribbons.

Um, is that link supposed to get me to a page that says more than
Read.Review. Discuss, or is my computer needing professional help?
The bottom of the page is blank...

You take the third letter of every word to spell out TRUTH behind Stewart's promotion...

"Little banana?" Didn't you see the speck next to me in the avatar picture? That infinitesimal speck barely noticeable? That's the Earth, that is...

I'm typically the first person to a bit of spam (which can sometimes be sexual in nature) and so I can remove it rather quick without having to wait on someone else. I can move threads to the relevant area without my "caustic" remarks.

The time I beat him to a spam thread has suddenly become meaningful...

Stewart, I do hope you'll try not to let all this power go to your head. So far I've had PMs from three formerly great posters who have gone elsewhere in order to avoid your gratuitous sarcasm.

I must say I like the sarcasm. I don't think enough people appreciate sarcasm. Stewart, I'm a fan. Congrats on your modship.
