You know, for something that people SWEAR they don't care about and doesn't exist and think there is NO REASON to bring up or discuss EVER, people sure do like to bring it up and throw it around every few months. And I know one of those people is Not Me. (Am I right people? And what about airline peanuts? Have you seen these things?)
Choke on that slapnuts.
The only thing I enjoy more than doing the crossword puzzle is actually finishing it.
Regarding one word posts, while they might take no time to read, for those of us who are relegated to dial-up with the standard page settings on, it can take a bit more than *no time* to load.
Or maybe I'm just one of those people who click on threads "expecting something worthwhile to be said." (Cubs, 332)
And as far as miknight's original post, is the best way to follow up a poor wrestling history lesson with sarcasm which either implies that this is old news and not worth talking about, makes fun of the poster's lack of accurate knowledge, or both? Not that I learned much from Miknight, nor do I know what prompted the *lesson*...
I guess its just that that kind of attitude, from a board regular (743 posts, ~11 months) to a board newbie (12 posts, 1 day) seems kind of arrogant and condescending, and does about as much to encourage new posters as Triple H's work ethic encourages new main eventers.
Well, there IS a dial-up mode for people like you and I who can't instantly load the fancy graphics. Anyway, the funny nickname for the wrestlers thing was nice until everybody thought they could do it too, and it ended up sucking.
I can understand why one-word posts get some posters' panties in a twist, but I actually laughed at Frosty's comment. It may have been one word, but it was witty and beat the heck out of other posts I've seen around here. One man's trash is another's treasure, I guess.
Back to the original topic, I always thought the Kool Moe Dee reference was in regard to Holly's hair. Didn't the rapper have the same ridiculous dye-job?
