Wahahaha!

I mean, uh.... I... totally didn't get that. At all. I've never been that involved, really. Really!

That's awesome.

I worked my way up from moderator to the lead admin of about an 8,000 member board a few years ago. It was fun, until I just about had a nervous breakdown dealing with a few personality conflicts that got out of control. Messageboard drama is about a million times worse when it's local and people meet up face to face regularly, cause in addition to anonymous flame wars, you have relationship drama. I felt like a high school vice principal. And of course I had a 'real job' I was supposed to be doing while my email is blowing up with people tattling on each other and demanding that I make rulings on various things.

This reminds me of my unfinished web-metal opus, Bänhämmer.

This post could've been good with more links to Optimus Rhyme and other nerd core rappists.

Perhaps you meant this?

mrnutty: "Zabuni, I think your link may be wrong."

Nah, just refresh the page a bit. It'll be a bit of performance art starring him as the Spamming Newbie and mattacortamyn as the Unhumored Mod.

You should hum the song to yourself.

Does "thread" rhyme with "regs"?

No.

Does "meats" almost rhyme with "nurse"?

Yes.
