They're ridiculously expensive. It's a scandal.

A scandal!

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.

Scandal in the city?
Gina Riley: Oh, come on, John. That’s a bit old hat, the corrupt IOC delegate.
John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.

Hi El_Capitano, welcome to the forum. I'll give you the same advice I give all the newbies: don't be afraid to be yourself, but don't be a troll, and above all else, try and stay away from Manbush.

That should extend to any female family member or friend of yours, Captain.

Manbush gets an absolutely appalling wrap around here from you blokes.

I'm not sure how many trials he's had but he's yet to be convicted, and that's enough for me.

Welcome to the forum. A quiet word of advice, don't get into an argument with Pigman, discuss stats with Matt or go anywhere near Manbush and you'll be fine.

Also, try not to feed the trolls. They're everywhere at this time of year.
