A suggestion for the Moderators

Postby Ezra Lb. » Mon Oct 04, 2010 1:19 pm

The hardworking and doubtless underpaid Moderators of this here forum and its sister site have taken much grief lately, so here's a suggestion borrowed from the language blog, Language Log. http://languagelog.ldc.upenn.edu/nll/?p=2683

"Unable to bear any longer the tedious work of seeking out all the instances of these two dopey comment types and deleting them, I have decided that from now on I will hunt down the relevant commenters and kill them.

I realize that it is unusual for a popular science blog to launch upon a policy of killing its own readers. That is why I thought an explicit warning should go up on the site first. This is that warning."
“We must not always talk in the marketplace,” Hester Prynne said, “of what happens to us in the forest.”
-Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Scarlet Letter

- I love to find adventure. All I need is a change of clothes, my Nikon, an open mind and a strong cup of coffee.
