A bunch of cunts, mostly in the Australian sense. Except that one guy.

Muppet steps down himself?

Muppet,

Consider the health of this forum. Please resign yourself.

(Would this be deleted?)

If I were Joel I'd take away the green check mark, but not because he is abusing power or doing a poor job of editing.

I'd take it away because the green check mark reflects on Fogcreek. Most of us know he has no association with the company, but the casual visitor will not know this.

Anyone with the poor taste and poor sense of someone like muppet would not be part of my company. If anyone like him even had a hint that his positions were accepted by my company (the green check) I would drop him fast.

If you need some examples of his poor taste and sense, then you have not been around long. But if you need a reminder or two here you go: How many people in the past week has he called "a fucking moron". One of his ethnic slurs has since been deleted. That was when he spoke about niggers.

This forum would be better off without his green check. This forum would be better off without him. So would the world.

Posted previously under the green check thread , but copied here (modified slightly) because:
  1. I have no respect for muppet.
  2. I have respect for JOS
  3. I think few of you dug deeply enough into the previous thread to see my late post

"How many people in the past week has he called "a fucking moron".

I did a search :) I count two, in total, from muppet in all the time he has been posting, presumably not counting any deleted threads.

...doesn't seem to bad to me...

If you can't stand the heat then you get out of the kitchen, muppet seems well able to take whatever heat and dish it out as required.

So I guess he qualifies by staying.

I want him to be even worse since he has a check. If he even remotely has an impulse to tell someone to do horrible things to themselves I want him to say it. JoS is sort of like my wrestling at times.

Dunno if I have cheetos. Fucking moron is actually quite a compliment to some people here. Especially if it is coming from muppet.

I don't mind a bit.

But all these discussions become tiresome.

Decide once and for all. If we kept Muppet, further threads discussing this should be removed.

Actually, with the latest relase of FogBugz, Joel & Co no longer have control over the green checkmark. For $99, you too can have a greencheckmark forum if you wish.

Who fucking cares? Why should muppet conduct himself like a spineless wimp just because he's a mod? Now, if he starts deleting posts 'cos he doesn't like the poster or editing posts to make folks sounds stupid - then, you'd have a point.

Me, I'm more concerned about how muppet reflects on Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, and the other icons of my childhood. Even Animal had better manners. ;-) ;-)

Then again, this IS an online forum, where everyone has the freedom to be a monument to her/his own folly... I vote he stays, FWIW. (That and fifty cents'll getcha cuppa coffee, I'm sure...) ;-)
