Alright folks, before I turn in for the night (a book and a scotch awaits)


Exactly how much "Scotch" was flowing through your veins when you concocted this idea of "Regent"?

Enquiring minds want to know?


Um, (gawd, this is so embarassing)

I was sober at the time.

It won't happen again, promise!

I haven't been here long enough to run for anything, but I'd really like for a Regent or whatever else they want to call it to help people who are new, guide them how to find interesting forums and show them the ropes. It would be very helpful as this is a really big site and there are a lot of people who only want to argue and provoke people instead of discussing things.

I like the people who are humorous and have fun when it's appropriate, but I don't like the ones who attack tiny details and want nothing more than a fight.

Some of the questions I would ask the Regent are:

What is the average education level here and what effect does that have on things?

Is there equal representation of men and women?

What is the average age range?

I guess I like to know who the audience is in order to present my opinion and beliefs in the most constructive way.


Now that is a reasonable request; only I think it would be better if everyone were encouraged to cut new members some slack and help them acclimate to ATS.


That's actually my nephew.... I told him to RUN, RUN AWAY before he got hooked!!! He doesn't listen well though LOL

ETA: not nearly as good lookin as me either, and isn't allowed to use the time machine

I think that it's sad when someone running has to resort to being overly insulting (some of the harmless back and forth is nothing compared to this..) I am officially calling out Nosred for using the word pleb to refer to me..




No. Get out of here pleb.


A response to my asking for him to clarify his string of nonsense as it made very little sense.

now the definition of the word:


Actually defined as a member of a despised social class, a commoner, a member of the plebs of ancient Rome. Also low-born, undisinguished, vulgar, and my personal favourite: vulgar-looking.


Are we going there folks?

That is no way to treat a lady!
A true leader or representative does not try to subjugate those around him/her, but to lift up all others and hold each to the same status.
A man isn't measured by what he does in his own interest but what he does in the interest of others.

While Nosred's use of the term Pleb might not be in keeping with the generally accepted standards of civil discourse. Allowing words on a computer screen to effect ones emotional state is not a trait that bodes well for someone who seeks to hold a public office.

Well, I've been busy gathering endorsements for everyone from celebrities around the world.

It's a two minute long GIF, (Two minutes you'll never get back!) but I can now announce official celebrity endorsements for 15 of our most dear candidates. Enjoy.....

Touché salesman, touché.

While, I appreciated Mr. Bush's support, I will not be accepting his endorsement.

That is all.
