wayne, you bitch, stop deleting my posts
besides, my original point is valid. you shouldnt be able to edit your own posts just because you regret making them. nobody else who isn't a moderator gets to do that.
if it contained something interesting, like personal privacy...then that is a different story, but the post in question doesn't...
so stop deleting your own posts just because they are pointless reposts of previously covered material.
besides, I find masturbation morally reprehensible. all those poor sperm. dying. you sicken me.
"besides, my original point is valid."
You made an original point somewhere?
"you shouldnt be able to edit your own posts just because you regret making them. nobody else who isn't a moderator gets to do that."
I should also get paid to build, maintain, a host a forum. Life just isn't fair.
oh, sure, just go there why dont you?
ok, if you are going to claim executive privilege there is fuck all I can do about it.
go, delete your post, and may the hollow victory choke you.
"I find masturbation morally reprehensible. all those poor sperm. dying. you sicken me."
They're going to die anyway... free the sperm!!!
Actually, I'm the last one who deleted his post.
And it sounds like the forum owner also doesn't know a simple way (no moderator trickery) to see the deleted posts.

I found that the technique only worked if I was logged in.
unless there is another approach?
indicentally, I think you should be pretty impressed, it only took me about 2.5 minutes from the time you told me it was possible until the time I worked out how.
DAMN im good. seriously. I freaking ROCK at solving problems with obvious, known solutions.
Jesus Ward, we're talking about sperm here... quit trying to put this thread back on topic!
I'm far too lazy to try and see deleted topics but I do know how.
"we're talking about sperm here"
I was actually hoping to move the discussion onto something more interesting like my personal and professional brilliance.
did you see the post about how hard I rocked? lets have some more of that.
Oh, yeah, duh, you have to be logged in, so it's only available to mods.

except that wayne deleted it because discussion of its contents suddenly became a thing on the forum, so although I miss it, I can see his point.
incidentally has anyone realised that we just went weeks without a discussion on moderation?* amazing how smoothly everything works when you remove all the incompetents and idiots.
* im not counting the 3 times the topic was brought up by AG cause she is just one of those attention seekers.
"incidentally has anyone realised that we just went weeks without a discussion on moderation?"
Yup. But then here we are talking about it again. I guess not all the incompetents and idiots were removed.
its true, they weren't. unfortunately I cant think of a working plan to remove the remaining two.
Well if you and Wayne would just leave it to me, I'd get rid of all the pointless drivel and we'd have only insightful, high-quality conversations here.
The only reason I haven't done it is that I'm terrified of sheep.

aww, ward. you cant get rid of _all_ the pointless drivel. people would miss you.
but seriously, if you two would just stop deleting posts and leave it all to me this forum would just go from strength to strength.
Ill let you both know if I need a hand, mmmkay?
Well, if you would masturbate instead of screwing sheep, maybe you'd be able to devote more time to CoT - time that I think we all agree it richly deserves.

Ok, I hereby declare that excessively ironic posts are now spew in this thread.
July 26th, 2007 7:42pm
hey ward. if I were able to spend time masturbating instead of shagging sheep my entire lifestyle would be a hell of a lot healthier than it is right now.
but HEY, THANKS FOR BRINGING IT UP.
and _that_ ladies and gentlemen is it. the full contents of AGs brain, dumped here on CoT for the rest of us to admire.
tune in again tomorrow when she makes a serious attempt at a post on the limitations of the american political system. sources say it will be absolutely gobsmackingly funny.
"limitations of the american political system..."
It will say: People! The election is over a year away! Why is everyone talking about the people instead of the issues!
Another possibility is a lecture about how blah and cot serve different purposes blah is good and cot is shit but both are special.
