A light hearted thread.


When starting a thread, argue about every piece of advice given. When thread is hi-jacked respond individually to each hi-jacker.

Take part in hi-jackings, the mods are too busy to deal with the victims themselves.

Give erroneous, even potentially dangerous advice. Respond to each objection individually. ( Be judicious, dangerous advice may lead to inability to make any posts at all.)

Do not give detailed instructions, OP will ask for more info. Respond with least info possible, use terms newbies are unfamiliar with, leading to requests for more info, creating self feeding circle.

Put off your own projects to become involved in OP's.

What would your count be if there were no typos on this site?

Obviate the use of PM's. Ask off topic questions of other posters. For example, chrisn can now ask kwikfishron, "While I have you on the line, can you tell me of any good fishing holes?"

That's right, notmrjohn, no meandering. I usually don't have enough bread crumbs to get home after reading some of yours.

Respond to all arguments; Jasper, no you don't.

Tell other responders that there's a better way than there's; canucker, bread is not up to code here, you are required to tie a string to first word in my posts, follow it back when you reach sig line.

Tell responders their idea is not up to code, even if you do not know the codes where they are, its bound to be not code somewhere.

mae-ling, no they weren't, birds ate the crumbs, the witch got 'um. The witch's house was not built to code.Ginger bread should never be used for load bearing walls. And she used "No Primer Needed" interior icing on exterior.

Let's get back to the subject -
"post count".
Get into your car -
drive along a nice, country road -
count the posts that you see.
Simple!

It was code when I started on the post. Can I extend it with string? Don't tell me I can't extend bread crumb trails with string. Licensed posters tell me it's not allowed but won't hurt anything. Never mind, it's my trail and there's no inspectors here, so I'll do what I want. ha!
