    Those two threads have pretty well tied up my whole day.

    They were awesome entertainment and I was thinking of mass hysteria and whatnot. Totally drained.

    I've just come back from some work to see what's new in Basic Help or MacOSX, slid in to Community Dicsussion and .... am wondering if there's another minor bit of drama working itself up.

    There was a point yesterday where I truly feared the universe was going to collapse on itself.

    Was that before or after Gates announced he would step down?

    Thanks for the link. Nice thread but i do think the kid is being ganged up on... It seems he has a reputation on this board I am unaware of..

    Perhaps we can use this thread to post links to interesting, dramatic, scandalistic, fun threads going on in MR?;)

    Didn't read either thread.

    But for some reason I had this intense generalized hatred of people going on...

    You are correct.
    It's fine to do that, as long as no one is insulting/insulted. Remember that anyone, even those not logged in, can see these threads.

    True.

    Not that it wasnt misguided or anything...:rolleyes:

    You should read them.

    In a nutshell....

    The first one is a story about a pastor who is trying to come across as a devout christian and is out to spread the word of Jesus only to be revealed with hard evidence as a liar who had broken a known rule on MR. Eventually he was banned.

    The second is a story about that same guy claiming hed been ripped off by another member who was "Breaking a MR rule and using multiple names on the site". Ironically to be revealed as someone doing the very same thing in the first story.

    The irony was ripe.
    Very Juicy.

    I think that only is possible if RoboMod deletes a smiley-only post.

    I think if you purposly flamed it it would only cheapen and lessen the drama value.

    Youll only get the rush if its in its pure form:)

    Maybe you had to be there, but I read through the threads and I felt it was about as gripping as a 1950s B-Movie…

    Yep...I just finished going through the whole thing. It almost makes me wish I'd skipped my vacation to be there live. Thrilling. A real page-turner.
