      I’m new to TR, too inhibited by nature to use Palmetto’s exact language, but my thoughts are identical. Thank you.

      Those who have read [i]The Scarlet Pimpernel[/i] may wonder whether BALTHOR is such a character – a dunce to appearances, a bold and decisive undercover agent in reality. One can only hope that the latter scenario ultimately plays out.

        I love it!

        But then again, I do cruise through The BALTHORS posts when I get bored 😀

        Edited to add: However, I would never mark The BALTHOR as SPAM..

      I see some posters here that can fill a ocean with the amount of crap they fling with their flowery high brow rhetoric, and it more or less disgusts me. Talking crap to look like they know something. Myself, I’m just blunt and hard edged… No apologies either for it.

      then you have Balthor. I think he is talking a line of crap, but I swear he does it just to mess with us… And it’s fun to see the response’s he gets.

      Hell, cut the person some slack… Remember when everything they wrote was in upper case?

        regularly. He cracks me up. Great stuff on a bad day, can’t help but laugh. Unfortunately, that post was a good one. Pretty multi-layered and on topic.

          gotta give it to BALTHOR and Scummy. They write entertaining stuff. Keep up the good work, all of you! It is a sad day when everyone takes themselves so seriously as to lose perspective and their sense of humor!

      When is a joke disinformation?

      Jocularity is fine so long as everyone understands that the post was made in jest. TR attracts new members daily, a good thing for all of us. Those unfamiliar with this type of warped humour may easily be confused or misinformed.

      The Forum’s reputation is only as good as the quality of responses from responsible participants.

        I’m not so sure I agree with your post.

        Isn’t it up to each person to do what they will with information given? I can’t imagine blindly following ANY advice on ANY board to be a good practice.

        Unless it’s my advice. Then it should be followed exactly as given.

          Or My advice

          after all I am the God of Scum :^0 Or was that Scum Dog (I think the HAL said that to me)(Maybe Mae though).

          Ok, Ok, only follow my advice when in the Q&A area :^0

          How dare you Scummy One

          In reply to Or My advice

          I would never call you a Dog of Scum suggesting that it may have been me is offensive in the extreme. :0

          I would never consider comparing you to a dog as the dogs would attack and kill me for putting them down that low. :p

          Maybe Mae with her favorite Shovel said that but it certainly wasn’t me. ;\

          God of Scum [b]YES[/b] but never in my wildest nightmares would I call you the Dog of Scum. You are one of a kind and as such are impossible to compare to anything else. :^0

          Dam it I wasn’t going to post here and now you’ve made me break another promise to myself again. :_|

          Well Hal, its like this

          In reply to How dare you Scummy One

          USUALLY you are the one to ‘rename’ me, so you got accused first :^0

          If I got it wrong, oops, so sad :^0

          At least I said that it might be, instead of it WAS HAL that said it!!! So there should be some satisfaction that you were not entirely all out accused.

          So, who was it that called me Scum Dog then?

          Oh, Sorry to insult OTR about it! OTR called me Scum Dog… LOL — and I actually insulted him by thinking that you did it :0

          My Apologies OTR!! Please Accept my deepest Apologies over this!!!

          you expect us to think for ourselves, double-check advice, do research? Aaarrgh! You mean actually learn something? You mean I need to stop being sheeple? Damn Mae, that’s too much like work!

        That’s my problem with him.

        by charliespencer ·

        In reply to When is a joke disinformation?

        I first noticed him in late ’06 when he put up multiple posts claiming the change in the U.S. Daylight Saving Time schedule was a hoax, and that complying with it would cause repercussions similar to Y2k. Since then I’ve missed few opportunities to mock and degrade him. This is the kind of disinformation that reflects poorly on this site, along with his frequent babblings about the gov’t owning all open source code or that all viruses can be removed by erasing the BIOS.
