She deserves better than a locked thread at only 632 posts. Carry on her spirit, everyone.
Only 632 posts? "If you know" got twice as many, easily!
Oh my god, it's true!
This thread didn't take, even iveteau has jumped ship and built a new home for himself by creating a new thread patterned after my very own un-original thread architecture (I did add the french+/-canadian element), so I think I'll just squat here for a hwile, alone with my own thoughts.
Speaking of squat, that's exactly hwat I got after my 1000th point. Still waiting for my prize from the "who gives a crap store" that I heard so much about from other members.
I am a diamond member and I significantly stepped up the frequency of my talk to get to this milestone and the staff here doesn't send me money or a title or a door prize or something that is free that once belonged to someone else but now should belong to me?! Do you know how hard it is to say things more frequently than usual? Or maybe you've never heard of "carpal tunnel syndrome"? Lame.
I can't tell if iveteau named his thread part "trois" (linked above) to copy my idea, as a homage to me, or because he is french and occasionally slips into his native language. Probably the latter, given all the comments everyone has said about him and his modus operandi in general. I mean, if after being repeatedly berated by everyone (though unjustly), you go ahead and create a link to your own newly created thread but it is identical to the title of the thread in which you are posting to advertise your new thread -except for changing the last number to the next highest consecutive integer but even that written in the same language as the copied thread title- that's weak sauce, so I know he's occasionally slipping into his own native French. Faulkner couldn't have said it better himself. iveteau is all right.
Guess I'll go back and finish my work from earlier today. Lame.
It was indeed a copy of your un-originality, as you said.
Well said, iveteau. You couldn't have said it better than I had already said it. Welcome back. I guess this is our playground. If you keep creating threads and I keep squatting in them, we could rule these forums. You might even one day be called "vice-president"...brings a whole new meaning to your name that was already meant when I re-named you, iveteau. I am taking the swing on the far right and will be staring at the ground while moving in an anteroposterior arc of about 60 degrees at a medium pace, lots to think about...
All right, I guess iveteau's thread copying my thread copying the original MS Jean thread but with a twist of french+/-canadian took, so now I can get some R & R, just me and my demons. I am still at work, this sucks spheres. All work should be shifts. After this post, my member points = provisional USCF rating, probably won't get a prize for that either. Oh well, until my next tourney in November.
