Seriously though... great to hear this poem...you did it great justice as always.
Thanks justgeneric for the comments...
I'm assuming that you mean't General Hospital(?) as that was the only show I could think
of that had those initials (sorry,, I don't watch soaps.. so am guessing here).
Yes.. the mighty "Q" was one of my favorites too... Always messing things up for the
continuum's enjoyment/pleasure (or his own in most cases).. Great character!
In regards to the mods and 'neener-neener-neener'... (lol). We shouldn't be hard on them.
They've got a job to do and it's not easy to moderate a forum (I moderate at several myself).
It's generally a thankless job that gets many more complaints than praise and is a pretty
demanding position (if not delicate one) to do... Attempts of trying to be neutral and
seperate the position's criteria especially if one knows a member can be very taxing on a mod...
Then too is the position of whether or not it's not more diplomatic to PM (or U2U) a member
about a situation or to make it public for everyone to see. It can all be very disconcerting and
troubling.... But in the end we have to remember that all mods and (yes even admins)
are human too, maybe they might be having a bad day (were all entitled to one or two aren't we?).
So I don't feel bad about the post, he/she is just doing their job...
Thanks for listening to my little remake of the TNG christmas poem...
