Unfair. I very rarely comment on your genuinely alarming sexual habits.

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

Well thats what happens when you want to clear 18 acres of pristine virgin wilderness to build a mansion. It takes time for bribes to go through and make those pesky endangered marsupials disappear.

Ruined v1: 3 separate insurance claims on my car courtesy of my wife (1st one, run in with a pole in childcare carpark, 2nd one different pole in childcare car park, 3rd one, didn't like the look of the car parked behind her...) tried to get it into 2 claims but damage is spread around the car...

Ruined v2: Lost ABS and traction control 2 days ago... dash lights constantly on... need to try clean the sensors and hope that fixes it otherwise $400+ repair on top of 3 insurance claims...

Made: TBA... maybe that god forsaken car will get nicked from the work car park...

Yeah i know all about dodgy traction... my first car was a manual single cab 1990 hilux... someone spat on the road, you'd fishtail...

I'm going to lift the car on the weekend and clean the sensors. I've been driving it in 4wd since they came on just as an added safety measure (on top of driving like a grandma). I'm in Sydney so don't go much past 40km/h courtesy of sydney traffic, so should be ok. Wont let my wife drive it in its current condition, and we won't be driving it when we have to go anywhere with my 2 year old.

As soon as the car's fixed we're selling it... wife reckons its bad luck (i just think she can't drive personally... dont tell her i said that lol). Can't wait for the insurance premium next year... good times.
I found a moon rock in my nose....

Bollocks. You were chugging 8% beers with your lunch.

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.
