    No, that’s low-brow — & just sad.

    I was just noticing someone’s avatar … Is that a picture of Hobbes on his Total Tiger exercise set?

    Considering that’s my wife’s avatar, the question “Is that Hobbes on his Total Tiger exercise set” could be taken a LOT of wrong ways!

    So get ready for a butt-whooping!

    Hmm, 7th “you”, after one who has been gone for so long. I feel, somehow, slighted.

    cbx, how about I take you up on that streaking bet?

    I think I’d better pass. They stop me at the border every time, and I have nowhere to carry my passport.

    I reread a few of those – there’s some real gems in there! 😀

    You have never ceased to amuse me with your hard work on formatting, linking, quoting, and the mocking! Ohh the MOCKING!

    I came across Comedown’s post in the “What do you expect from scorched thread, and I think it sums things up quite accurately:@comedown wrote:

    so, in closing, what is it we expect from scorched? 😆 😆 😆 😆

    The thread sums it up.

    A bunch of clueless smartasses taking pot-shots at each other, in a friendly and positive atmosphere!

    I talked to the admin gang, and someone told me that they did edit it – I think it was perceived as a mistake that all that whitespace was in there. We’re following up on how to, as a group, improve how things like this will be handled.

    On that note, I’m thinking this is REALLY off topic, so I’ll shut up. 😉

    Wow – thanks for the regurgitated links! Some of those threads were actually funnier this time than on the origianl read!!

    Never stop, Hobbes! Not only would we miss out on your meticukously witty posts, but also really good ones like this one!

    Note to self: I must really take a look at where the open-loop poles are when we add more cowbell

    And to be honest, I really can understand what some admin was thinking:

      It’s only whitespace that was deleted, what’s the big deal?

    But my formatting was intentionally “hiding something in plain sight”. I wanted to hide text at the end of the post, but I also wanted that hidden text to be obvious to people that know me &/or can guess that there may be something to all that excessively-LONG-&-apparently-empty end-of-post.

    For instance, without “hiding in plain sight”, did any of you notice the hidden text at the end of this post & that post? If not, it just proves my point that deleting the extra whitespace deprecated the really-obvious nature of the “hidden text”.
    [Note: I hope slightly-inappropriate hidden text can remain hidden but uncensored.]
    At least one admin noticed:

    The admin in question was kind to send a PM apologizing & I respect that. But honestly, I’m not so much as “mad” about the editing as I am frustrated by it. I stand by what I said before, that admins “changing things for no other reason than because someone has the power to change things … gets real annoying”.

    Now that I don’t understand. Maybe it’s a delayed humor thing. Dunno.

    Off topic… like most other posts here…. I haven’t been talked too yet.
    I also only delete spam (bad spam that is), really stupid and hateful stuff.

    heh, hiding text. that is so silly. I’d never do a thing like that.
    let’s see if anyone goes back and rereads the great Cowbell debates of June. Conveniently in the spam posting.
