Flame me. Oh please flame me.

By DMambo ·
I've been underground for a few weeks and it looks like I've missed a couple of doozies. So as a public service, I thought I'd offer myself up as a sacrifice to let everyone get their pent-up spew out of their systems. It's also a chance for me to enjoy all the protests that I'll read, like: "Flame you Mambo? It can't be done! You're just too pure, good and kind!!"

So have at it. For ammunition, here's my bio:
- fairly liberal democrat
- male
- white
- American (the real kind, not just "North American" like those poser Canadians)
- Catholic (oooh!)
- Confine myself almost entirely to misc discussions. Very few Tech Q&A posts
- Once left a Tech Q&A open for months
- balding
- bad punctuator
- was against Iraq war from the start
- Italian heritage
- favor Dr.- assisted suicide
- Red Sox fan
- (insert your invective here. If you need more, just ask!!)

In my favor, I will state that I'm not an over-user of emoticons.

Once everyone has disgorged themselves of thier hate, we can get on with the old, civil TR that I grew up with. (Well, I don't think it was ever really like that, but I have a rose-colored memory.)

Somebody didn't get a hug this morning.....

It is so sad to see your pathetic attempt at getting attention.

Can't you see all the great examples all around you? Why not adopt someone else's ID instead, or post to a long dead flamefest in hopes of reviving it?

Hows that for a starter?

I do recall some other flamefests that were worse than what we have today - the threats of physical violence at one point. But I do sense that where those were somewhat limited in the number of participants, we may have a more generally angry mood these days.

Me, I am trying, not always successfully, to avoid the debates where I know there is no hope of changing anyone's mind - like Global Warming. At some points I barge into some of the sub conversations, but I know I am not going to change Max's mind or Oz's mind or Absolutely's mind, so why just stir it up. And you can't teach a Sleeping dawg.....much.

And for eternity.....

Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl
With yellow feathers in her hair and a dress cut down to there
She would merengue and do the cha-cha
And while she tried to be a star, Tony always tended bar
Across a crowded floor, they worked from 8 till 4
They were young and they had each other
Who could ask for more?

At the Copa (CO!), Copacabana (Copacabana)
The hottest spot north of Havana (here)
At the Copa (CO!), Copacabana
Music and passion were always the fashion
At the Copa....they fell in love

(Copa Copacabana)

His name was Rico, he wore a diamond
He was escorted to his chair, he saw Lola dancin' there
And when she finished, he called her over
But Rico went a bit too far, Tony sailed across the bar
And then the punches flew and chairs were smashed in two
There was blood and a single gun shot
But just who shot who?
At the Copa (CO!), Copacabana (Copacabana)
The hottest spot north of Havana (here)
At the Copa (CO!), Copacabana
Music and passion were always the fashion
At the Copa....she lost her love

(Copa. . Copacabana)
(Copa Copacabana) (Copacabana, ahh ahh ahh ahh)
(Ahh ahh ahh ahh Copa Copacabana)
(Talking Havana have a banana)
(Music and passion...always the fash--shun)

Her name is Lola, she was a showgirl
But that was 30 years ago, when they used to have a show
Now it's a disco, but not for Lola
Still in the dress she used to wear, faded feathers in her hair
She sits there so refined, and drinks herself half-blind
She lost her youth and she lost her Tony
Now she's lost her mind!

At the Copa (CO!), Copacabana (Copacabana)
The hottest spot north of Havana (here)
At the Copa (CO!), Copacabana
Music and passion were always the fashion
At the Copa....don't fall in love

(Copa) don't fall in love

I have no idea who you are

by Tig2 In reply to By special invitation

but you are NOT funny!

Why do you insist on playing sophmoric little games in an effort to harm others? What precisely is your damage???

Go away. Do it now. You are a troll and not welcome here.

Just because many of us do not have degrees does not mean that we are idiots. You are. See here:

You are tiresome and a troll. Get a life... please!
