Have just nipped round the back of the forum, and I must say that things are looking a bit shoddy.  Especially the area where MW parks her rapid response turbo broom.  Cigarette butts and discarded empty Gin bottles just lying around all over the place. 

 

Come on Mods, sort it out! ;)

It's good that new members are reading the older threads and posts... so much learn there... however, there are Rules in place  - for good reason - even if one doesn't understand or agree with them.

 

No one has to stick around TW should they find these Rules, or how they applied, troublesome.

 

Mountain Witch is a perfectly capable MOD.  Personally, I have found her to be  helpful; fair; tough when she needs to be; she (and all the Mods) are deserving of Respect.

 

'...parks her rapid response turbo broom.' WTF?  I find this offensive.

I second what Nikki said. There's plenty of good info here as well as a search engine. Sorting through years of user supplied threads in unnecessary and not the reason the moderators exist.

I am SO CONFUSED, or maybe being slow...

I can't speak for anyone else- but since I chimed in I feel the need to clarify
-I assumed Aefre's comment was a joke and was referring to an imaginary "back of the forum" (not old threads) - like as in the dirty alley way behind a lovely shop where folks go to have a smoke and bring in supplies..
As the old threads are awesome I can't imagine anyone finding fault with them- so THAT would have never occurred to me.
- Mountain Witch is freaking awesome. And it is physically impossible for me to be insincere even for my own good:).

@Nikki @ Ravenshaw Get a life.  It was a joke :P

 

And, MW, definitely has a rapid response turbo broom, I've seen it, it's round the back of the forum.

 

Last week I got a detention, and she made me wax it. Twice.

Neither cigarette butts nor gin bottles are mine. I always field-strip my cigarettes & pocket the filter, and can't stand the taste of gin (perhaps something to do with a martini-loving former boyfriend?)! But, being the anal-retentive, neat-freak Virgo that I am, I'll go clean up someone else's mess.

 

Thanks to Aefre, the broom is polished to a high shine - I'm just afraid with all the wax she put on it I'll slip off.

 

And thanks, everyone, for your kind words. I do try!

Haha, now that's funny...

 

But the other post didn't come off as a joke... neither does GET A LIFE... perhaps your type of humor, not unlike like gin, is an acquired taste.

Apologies for any offence caused.  'Get a life' was completely out of order.  Perhaps I can make it up to you and buy you a drink.  They've got a bar round there, and I hear RoseRed makes a mean margarita :)

 

@MW.  'Martini-loving boyfriend'?  Did you date James Bond....

Good-looking, suave, not so much a "good guy", though.

No worries, aefre.

 

You seem like you'd be a BLAST to drink with and we'd surely share many laughs !!!

 

Cheers :atoast:

No clue but if it's not moved in 24 hours, I'm claiming it as abandoned property. :)

I'll move it!  But the last thing I hotwired was a 1974 VW Beetle- I don't think the same technique would work on a new Aston Martin.   :thinking:

Calling RedRose, it's your birthday, and ImamSua's 'bought' you a shiny, new, silver Aston Martin.  With machine guns mounted on the front headlights.  And an ejector seat. :D
