Topic: I made a terrible mistake

Did he accidentally turn off voting and commenting?

I think most of the people interested in this thread, probably know your views by now, from your 16 posts in it.

How about stepping away and hearing other people's views?

Our membership are interested in a wide range of opinions, rather than one person's repetitive meanderings.

I'm booked in to see this guy, next week.

He seems to have a gentle empathic nature:

Fixed the image for you. I find opening them up in a free editor like MS Paint, then saving as a PNG works most of the time, or save it as that, open it again, and rotate 90 deg as required.

It's a minor irritation with cameras. Despite the claims to fix orientation or otherwise, they very often come out sideways for me too. You don't use an iPhone 5 per chance?

I think you've been spending too much time in here. Mind you, that's the first thing I thought of too <img src="/forum/images/emoticons/embarassed.gif" alt="Embarassed">

Back to the topic. I think Sasha Baron Cohens character, Borat is racist and offensive. <img src="/forum/images/emoticons/my2cents.gif" alt="My 2 cents">

I fail to find it funny. He was repeatedly warned, and is now on a 7 day suspension, for vitriolic abuse against a mod in the public forums.

If you find Borat racist, you clearly have no understanding of satire, or what a parody is.

Here are some simple words that might help you "get it": http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/6153420.stm

Topic: Gav, are you responsible for this debauchery?

I wondered where you'd got to. A week long bender with your crew.

Shame on you! I have proof!

I've never been called a dog, so that's a start...

I have no idea, so I took a highly scientific and factually based quiz, off a .info domain. It must be true!


I'm a turtle apparently: http://www.spiritanimal.info/turtle-spirit-animal/

This one: https://whatismyspiritanimal.com/spirit-animal-quiz/ said I was an elephant. How rude!


Finally. This is the test to take everyone!


Topic: Tolerating Intolerance

That's enough. I'm no longer tolerating the threadjacking of this "Tolerating Intolerance" thread.

There seem to be people here, who have their own agendas, totally unrelated to this thread.

I don't know if those agendas are to deliberately stir the pot, have a general moan about the site / moderators, or are simply seeking attention. Probably a mixture of all 3, judging by the same old people doing those postings. It's getting really stale.

I find it incredulous, that a couple of the repeat offenders, have been here over 5 years. We must be running the site so terribly for them to stick around that long! <img src="/forum/images/emoticons/laughing11.gif" alt="laughing9"> If it's so poorly run, why haven't you gone elsewhere, instead of hanging around here, trying to attention seek and stink up the place?

None of the forums are a soapbox, to Moderator or site bash.

Read our Forum Posting Guide if you wish to do either of the above. It clearly states what you need to do, if you have an issue with either our Moderators, or how the site is run.

Now let's get this thread back on topic, or let it die its natural death. Seems the latter may already have happened, going by half the nonsense which has been posted in the last day or so.

Any non-related thread posts, will be deleted.

Well, you can bet your last condom it ain't gonna happen here or any other site where the antics of the OP of this thread are tolerated.

He's just about the most bigoted, intolerant, jerk I have ever encountered on any site, much less this one. But he's allowed to act like a spoiled middle school student who just this year hit puberty and discovered profanity, because the target of his bigotry is anyone whom he IMAGINES might be white, male, a believer in any deity, a gun owner, didn't vote for Bernie Sanders, or any combination of one or more of those listed characteristics. Don't bother complaining about his behavior, at best you might be told that anything he does on Think Tank is OK because he invented this Forum section (I kid you not. A moderator told me that in just so many words). At worst you will be told to act like an adult and grow a pair of whatever body part you choose. Doubt any of this? Just peruse the last few months of his posts on any topic. Just pick any topic at random.

An then to top it all off, the most intolerant SOB on this site starts a thread on tolerating intolerance. I believe that's called chutzpah.


Let's see how long it takes them to take down this post. <img src="/forum/images/emoticons/readsmallprint.gif" alt="Read it">

You really need to get your facts straight.

2 of our former Forum Moderators, LadyX and MrNudiePants, and I, realised back in July 2010, there was a need for a forum dedicated to weightier topics, and more intellectual issues. Some of our membership wanted something more than forum games and pub type chat (good for their purpose!), so we set "The Think Tank" up.

I even remember seeing Blur's album cover, "The Think Tank" on my playlist, and thought, yes, that's perfect.


If anyone has a problem with another member, please BLOCK them. I've asked Gav to see if he can make this block more foolproof, so quoted text of someone you've blocked, isn't shown.

Thank you.

Topic: Moderator of the Month, for July
Posted: 16 Aug 2017 12:26

After a brief hiatus from the site, this Story Moderator has returned at her best, firing on all 12 cylinders (V8 SS?).

She's the only Moderator to process over 100 stories in July (please don't do so many!), and has been a great boost to have back in the team.

Winning the M.O.T.M. Award more times than anyone else, a heartfelt thanks goes out to Sweet_as_Candy.

Congratulations Candy Girl!
