This thread seems to be headed south Can't Post

It may not be there yet, but it's picking up speed. I don't doubt the sincerity and relative good will of the various posters, but...

"I wonder if we need two words..." [In reply to] Can't Post

A few days ago, David Bratman made a good point on his blog about the difficulty of such conversations, in which the two sides on that issue talk past each other.


Treachery, treachery I fear; treachery of that miserable creature.

But so it must be. Let us remember that a traitor may betray himself and do good that he does not intend.

Thanks for the heads-up, squire. / [In reply to] Can't Post

 

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Our habit [In reply to] Can't Post

is to edit out the link to a problematic post or thread once the situation has been sorted out.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

Sorry, but having a silly moment [In reply to] Can't Post

what if the thread is like this one below? Is it only the ones headed "south" that count? How would you edit this one? (More seriously--please know I love our mods for all the work they do! This is a joke, not mod-mockery.)
