He became a mod the same way we all did - by exhibiting brilliance, sagacity and by sucking up to Jenna.

Disturbing thought, this didn't occur to you in the middle of a sex fantasy, did it? What was I wearing? Something black and tight, I hope.

YES!Now why would anyone want to become a mod? They become part of the system. Man, we are so outside the system. They have to conform. They need to be polite and show some dignity. Who needs that? Besides they need to wear pants to work. Now that just sucks big dogs.

Jealous still?

I think he deserves to be a mod, if only because he has Lorn (from Angel) as his avatar.

However, he'd get more of my support if it were an Amy Acker (Winifred "Fred" Berkel) pic.

In my defense, I'd like to say I've never eaten haggis in my life, nor have I ever worn a kilt, and I'm none too keen on the shrieking wail of bagpipes either, I don't even know how they get all these cats into the bag.

We're playing demons this week in honor of Liam's new book (see top left ad), Dawno suggested I be Lorne, given my secret Buffy fetish. Truth to tell, Fred didn't quite ding my bell despite her big brain. Illyria on the other hand had my full attention, maybe it was the deeper voice, or maybe it was the, er, spray-painted leather gear, let me think now...

No one has cut my stomach open and pulled out my intestines yet, so I live in hope. Please note, Mel Gibson is an actor, he isn't actually the original William Wallace.

A superlative suggestion sir, with just two minor flaws. One, we don't have any defensive shields, and two, we don't have any defensive shields. Now I realize that technically speaking that's only one flaw, but it's such a big one I thought it was worth mentioning twice.

Degenerates any further?! I thought it was slowly rising on a gentle cushion of love. The love your fellow man kind of love. Man-love.

There's only one way to compare, and that's to make dclary a moderator! Then we can have a mod-off.

Or, that could be the insanest idea ever written on a message board.

aadams has the deciding vote. Oh, right, the vote's already in. Thanks to all who participated in this fun contest!

Curses, busted. Me and my man-love buddy dclary dreamed this up as we exchanged intimate messages and swapped naked pics last night.


and why is your webpage never in your sig and always put like that? seeing vampyres spelled like that scares me.

I understand the spelling scariness. It seemed a good idea at the time, when I was writing these stories many years ago. Something to do with linking the fanged ones to their going up in flames when staked. In the cold light of day and with the benefit of hindsight, I see as how this was not a nifty idea after all. Thank you.

I had to go away and think about the sigline thing and check a couple of things out.

I think it's a leftover from the old ezboard days when I had problems getting my sigline to format correctly, much frustration and grrr arg.

So here's the deal. I have a little icon on my taskbar, when I select this a REXX program runs that picks a random quote from a file or TV show, and pastes this into Notepad2 along with my web page URL so I can type a reply. When I'm finished I copy/paste from Notepad2 into the message board editor window. (If a system response blip blitzes my message, I still have the original in Notepad2, hah!)

A similar icon performs the same task but pulls in a critique disclaimer header and footer which I often use in Screen Writing forum, e.g.

My humble opinion, etc. I am not a professional screenwriter. Use whatever comments and suggestions you happen to find useful, ignore the rest without a second thought.

Looking at the code, there's some kind of weighted number assigned to entries in the quotes file which means quotes near the top have more chance of popping up again sooner than those down near the bottom. I don't remember coding this 'way back when but it's wonderful to look at, lovely formatting, almost poetic. Anyways, if I don't like the quote for any reason I can hit a function key that cycles down through quotes until I find one I do like or is appropriate for the reply. I also have fun trying to remember who quoted the quote, keeps my mind sharp. The one below is annoying me, it's from Andrew Keir, British actor, who played Rex Harrison's (Caesar's) general in Cleopatra, but I can't remember the character's name. Grrr.

And hopefully that has answered your question, young man. I admire your enquiring mind. If you apply yourself I'm sure you will go far.
