so ban me for life sissys:

I don't know if he's even worth the guidelines spiel. I mean, we're approaching the holiday season, and in that vein maybe we should just give the lad what he wants. Sidebar: I had no where to mention this, so this seems as good a spot as any... Since we put in the minimum-comments-before-FPP rule, the front page has been relatively free of deleted threads. That was a great idea, so thanks.

His recent comments page is even more enlightening. Were there deleted comments he was arguing with or is he, y'know, nuts?

When it comes to people who use "your" instead of "you're" I'm with Arnaud-Amaury. I think he was "arguing" with a user (TommyTrump?), who quoted one of his gems, yfm. I expect the Sissys will be working on fulfilling his request shortly.

I can't decide if sissys is supposed to be some kind of pun off sys admin, or a misspelling. I'm betting on the latter, especially after reading the comments page. He only joined yesterday. Short shell life.

Listen, mister, if you don't get me on board that goddamn submarine, I might just have a war for you! You got me? Now you have ten more minutes' worth of fuel, we stay here ten more minutes! Next time, Jack, write a goddamn memo.

Is the why-can-black-people-say-it-but-white-people-can't debate nearing the not-a-sport debate as a banned topic? Still missing a parenthesis on the locker room home page.

We call it "Crazy Ivan." The only thing you can do is go dead. Shut everything down and make like a hole in the water.

I would like to have seen Montana.

Some things in here don't react well to bullets. Yerfatma, if you are ever so inclined, I'd love to see a Red Dawn-esque Saturday afternoon drink-a-long to THFRO. Now that's a sport.

One ping only.

I don't know if he's even worth the guidelines spiel. He's not. He made some racist remark and then spent the rest of the night creating new accounts to make the same point over and over. That type thread brings those type people out of the dark.

Whatever his comment was, it got yanked between when jg started this thread and when I got to it. The delete-your-stupid-comment-hammer is swift and sure.

I mean, we're approaching the holiday season, and in that vein maybe we should just give the lad what he wants. I agree with jerseygirl, especially when it nears Super Bowl time. Going through another month of GO STEELERS!!!!!!!!! in every comment is not a thrilling thought.

Going through another month of GO STEELERS!!!!!!!!! in every comment is not a thrilling thought. I wouldn't worry about the STEELERS!!!! being in the SuperBowl again. He's not. He made some racist remark and then spent the rest of the night creating new accounts to make the same point over and over. Did you end up banning the IP?

posted by jerseygirl at 09:53 AM on November 01

The delete-your-stupid-comment-hammer is swift and sure. It's a no brainer to watch any thread that has to do with race closely. Plus, didn't get a single trick or treater. Did you end up banning the IP? I don't think it's an IP ban, though I'm not sure. And I was lazy and didn't check if it was the same IP. I just went by the similar comments one after another from accounts created one after another and his mocking "ban me all night".

Yerfatma, if you are ever so inclined It's really more a question of Mrs. yerfatma being so inclined. To leave me home alone for a weekend. Plus it feels a bit outside the bounds of the locker room.

posted by yerfatma at 10:07 AM on November 01

While we're (sort of) on the subject, I'd just like to thank everyone for staying with that racism thread and keeping it meaningful and productive. Seriously, for such a seemingly played-out argument, there's some good discussion there. Some crap discussion too, but there's good stuff all the way through.

posted by DrJohnEvans at 10:23 AM on November 01

outside the bounds of the locker room If towel whips are ok, I think a few off-color jokes and a hilarious rant or two are ok in my books. But I don't have much of a library.

posted by garfield at 12:09 PM on November 01

jerseygirl writ thus: I wouldn't worry about the STEELERS!!!! being in the SuperBowl again. Indeed, my guess is that GO STEELERS!!!1!1!! will get real quiet about 4 pm on December 31st. Also, I second what garfield said re: yerfatma favoring us with a Red Dawn-style reprise. OTOH, I was fool enough to sign up for NaNoWriMo and I really don't need any more excuses to procrastinate.

That Red Dawn rant was classic. I liked our little racism debate. There really isn't a hell of a lot of polite dialogue (or dialogue in general) these days, and I like seeing it occassionally. Brings back an inkling of my rapidly deteriorating faith in our continent.

our continent Continents are totally artificial divisions, man.

I'm just glad I got 4 consecutive Red October quotes out of it. Validates my existence here.

Relax, Jonesy. You sold me.

Your conclusions were all wrong. Check out YYM's name. I bet he knows Jack Ryan.

Psh, Jack Ryan is a nothing.

posted by Ying Yang Mafia at 07:59 PM on November 01

You damn gorilla. That'll cost you one key board, and you may no longer visit the internet for the rest of basketball season! I hope you have learned your lesson mister. Oh wait, I don't think weedy is a minority that can be compared to a primate in a negative way, after his ancestors were enslaved hundreds of years ago and referred to the same way. So, forget it the keyboard and net thingy, we'll just act like it never came up. j/k

A little eels for your morning drive-time.

22 miles of hard road 33 years of tough luck 44 skulls buried in the ground Crawling down through the muck Oh yeah!

One of my favorite album names/album covers of all time. Unfortunately, I never liked the actual music

posted by tron7 at 11:02 AM on November 02

The eels are so hit or miss for me. I love that album (how can you not love something done by the Unabomber, unless it blows up in your face?), but the albums around it I'm (at best) ambivalent about. But the first couple of albums I love.

And all this time I thought Novocaine For The Soul was their one-hit wonder. (even though I did notice they did a song for the Shrek 2 soundtrack)

posted by MrFrisby at 01:51 PM on November 02

I think they had a song on the Scream 2 soundtrack too.

posted by jerseygirl at 02:17 PM on November 02

Well perhaps a better song to quote would have been: I think I'm so educated and I'm so civilized 'cause I'm a strict vegetarian With the overpopulation and inflation and starvation and the crazy politicians I don't feel safe in this world no more, I don't wanna die in a nuclear war I wanna sail away to a distant shore...

Yerfatma, if you are ever so inclined, I'd love to see a Red Dawn-esque Saturday afternoon drink-a-long to THFRO. Now that's a sport. Why did I read that acronym as Throw Momma From The Train? Not that wouldn't also be pretty funny... OWENNNNNNNNNNNN
