But, what are we without our reputation?

Pointless? I don't think you're being very sensitive to those who have esteem issues.

Merely a skirmish, Bob. We'll now see how brave some are without anything to barter for, or with.

It is kinda weird. I actually used that to see how seriously I should take some of the posters that I didnt know by name.

Also, the webpage formats correctly on my screen now.

Small changes are appearing daily. They moved it to a new web address, and probably a new (better) server, so they can to software updated on the fly. They seem to have fixed the posts showing up in the wrong order today as well.

Good riddance to rep. points.

That's the intention of the rep system. But this rep system was to jacked up and that's the primary reason why it was pointless.

Personally, I am outraged! I want my little, green, digital squares!

Well, I don't have to now and I suppose that's a good thing.

Glad to be of service.

In your dreams. I don't know anything about Tak, who is not a factor -- by linking HIM AND ME, you show that you're unaware of the awesome power of The Force -- but fear not, the reputation points may very well come back. When they do, both you and Tak will be powerless against the forces arrayed at the SECRET REBEL BASE.

Funny. Some here have sarcastically expressed a feeling of being lost without their rep points, but you... you seem to have a genuine feeling of powerlessness without the ability to neg someone!

That’s a very lucid and well thought reply; however, I’m going to “pretend-neg-rep” you just to stir up some drama.

Perhaps, you can start your own Robot Chicken Eggs Tread (whatever the fuck that is) and rant about me pretend-neg-repping you there.

Better yet, why not start another Tak’s Life Thread? You can lord over that thread as if it is a lofty dominion and delude yourself with daydreams of grandiose retorts and witty quips.

Of course, you’ll have to provide the vast majority of thread views yourself by checking it constantly but that shouldn’t be a problem.

Just drink large amounts of vodka if it starts to appear like a pointless endeavor.

Seriously the silly neg rep is gone, time to
Get back to serious af issues...
Has anyone heard what is actually
Happening with the 6 month epr
And AC review. It can't be top secret,
Is a think tank handling it.

This does not bode well for faith
In the review. Those having been
In awhile know this is akin to
Lip service. Probably why they
Said if review doesnt help then
It's time to move on.
Not way to approach, better
To say I, cmsaf will get this
Fixed and involve people,
Give updates, etc, this is basicALS
Communication folks.
What has been done on review over last month,
Tak wants answers, or ill shut that
6 month review down too!!!

Don’t forget to let it go to your head and start using misspelled Italian colloquialisms and call yourself “The Godfather”.

Oh! If your campaign is successful, be sure to remember to PM the target of your “pretend neg-reps” every other day and ask them if they want a truce. That way you be able to self-validate yourself in a manner that provides a nice warm glow that the vodka just doesn’t do anymore.

Also, if someone manages to post something that does embarrass you, just be dismissive and try to change the subject to AF feedback sessions in a rambling post that is largely incoherent.

Helpful Hint: Use lots of carriage returns so the post will be long and bury the offending post on the previous page.

Tak
04-10-2013, 05:47 PM
And I was going to do the same thing, sign a strategic alliance with you and completely bury TAK and RC with neg reps to the point they are begging for mercy. That said, I'm glad we can't do this now because I am actually starting to enjoy the relative (fragile) peace with those two.

Peace is the way to go...I love it.

The following is attributed to Theodore Roosevelt:

"THE MAN IN THE ARENA

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. "

It doesn't, short-timer. I believe the quote, widely given to TR, is what RFD is referring to.

I love it when things go south after trying to provide clarity, like some of those twelve-step meetings I hear about.

I just realized that I have one notification pending - a reputation comment. But when I click there is nothing there. I will live the rest of my life not knowing what that last reputation comment may have been, or who posted it. Was it positive or negative? Did they leave a comment? If they did, was it standard language or something unique? Was it heartwarming or a creatively written short essay on the many ways I should go 5v(k myself? This not knowing really sucks. Damn you moderators. Damn you all to hell.
