Speaking of new forums, I have some ideas for another four or five:

"Off Topic"
"Way Off Topic"
"Incredibly Way Off Topic"
"Completely Unintelligible Posts I Wish I Understood"
"Individualists Unite"
"Deep Thoughts"

maybe this is my fav -

"The Forum Where MS Mods and Admins Are Guests And Everyone Else Is A Mod"

Jer,

To hearken back to the "80's child" post, "you wanna go where everybody knows you're a mod!"

You forgot

Amnesic - to recognize the signs that some on has forgotten what they were talking about and is about to go off on strange tangents. Hey did anyone else think the ending to Terminator 3 was kinda stupid and another thing why can't you see more them the last 50 posts on the View Recent Posts, and speaking of gardening where did I put the TV remote.

--------------------
it's always in the last place you look.
Asked and answered! (that's lawyer talk)

BTW - the reason you can't get more than 50 posts is to prevent obsessive-compulsive behavior which is reserved for moderators

as for the terminator, mods don't have time for movies, besides we will soon enough have him as our governor proving there is no ending to righteousness and the defense of the American Way

Thad I guess I dont qualify for the post you talk about. There is no allowance for being a raving lunatic who not only can remember where his car keys are but often times forgets that he took his car someplace and forgot to retrieve it. \:D

Additionally I am totally irrational when exposed to ice cream or chocolate truffles. I have a Jeckle and Hyde persona there. Again no qualification. :p

I always thought anyway that a Mod was a member of the Mod Squad on TV.
Am I the only one who can remember that.

Hello All,

As the newest chat room Mod Squad member, I have some comments based on my direct experience here. With the chat admin requierements clarified, I am comforted to know the range and details of the selection and evaluation criteria that I met. Thank you Thad for removing all my fears, delusions and doubts. A man is known by the company he keeps as they say.

As a new mod, I find that the list is woefully incomplete without the following three qualifications:

TOOTHLESS To eliminate all pain from biting one's tongue.

DYSLEXIC AND BLIND To be able to comprehend my typo-laden messages. (This post is not an example.)

MINDLESS To feel like you are making a contribution by bringing a fresh prespective to each and every situation.

Thad, superlative job as always. The following qualities of your leadership demonstrate the man you are:

Forthright
Unflinching
Compassionate
Kind
Energetic
Dedicated.

Thad, where would we all be without you?

With frivolity and humility,
Steve


Thad, you ain't leaving teh Mod Squad. ;-)

Here's something to bring this discussion back on topic?! ;\)

Which Mod Squad member do you want to be ?

I'd be Linc, cause he was totally cool and that's the only one's name I can remember, I think.



You know, I think I've just strayed off topic again, darn it!

Waddya think, Linc, I mean Thad, shouldn't this be moved to POLLS?
\:o

Enjoying the insanity is the key to being nuts,

I'd be Paris, because he didn't need to wear a ski cap to cover up the pointed ears when he was undercover.

Or am I the one confused?

\:D

Actually, Mod Squad was off limits to us. But we were allowed to watch Batman, Dark Shadows (which scared the crap out of me) and later Hawaii Five-O (however it was spelled). Not a lot of consistency that I can see there. Except that these are all fantastic creations, and we watched reality based shows like Johnny Quest and the Herculoids on Saturdays.

OK, way out there now.

Joe

Thanks for the laugh, Mike, I needed it today.
