WRONG! Some of "this lot"

Hmmm, not the most polite terminology for a number of contributing members. I'm glad that no one refers to me in such a manner.

As long as you're correcting things, I'll ask again - please guide the TF to correct her mistake with my title.... I never said anything like that.


Jon wrote in post #17985012 (external link)
Well, no. But she informed me that you invited the acupuncture treatment:

All's fair in love and POTN titles. I'm with the TF on this one.

.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

I think Jon was kidding when he wrote that post. Or at least I hope he was kidding. The post is very stern and serious, and any post with that kind of tone doesn't really fit anywhere in the lounge, and especially not in this thread. So if he is truly a fun guy who doesn't take himself too seriously (as we all should be), then I think that no one should feel threatened by his post, as it was almost surely a joke (considering the context).

WRONG! Some of this lot have standards of decorum much lower than are generally approved of in POTN. You've collectively gotten away with a lot in this thread, but try polluting other threads the same way and see how tolerant we are. Even in the Lounge there are minimal standards of behavior.

Jon's post was not the official statement or a response endorsed by POTN staff.

Carry on.

Jon is no longer a moderator, so please address all questions regarding the allowable title fairy activity to her current address:

That's pretty much all that happens here, no?

I sincerely hope that that was not our fault! And by "our" I really mean those other guys. I'm a friggin angel. :evil:

I hope she is forwarding her mail, because I have it on good authority that she was last seen in Thailand in a raucous bender.

Apparently "Virgin Shirley Temples" got her in such a state, there were visible multicolored bubbles when she let out a squeaky little burp, and of course, blue-birds and hashtags were circling her head right there at the bar!

I like Kashmir. So The TF supports Kashmir as Pakistani politically owned vs. India... Hmm...

Oh and I do beg everyone's pardon but sorry, I am back again :twisted:  :p

P.S. I don't know if the T.F. is taking requests but I think 'Mostly Lurking' as a title would be an improvement... just sayin.

Regardless - we shall see what the TF's humour is - now that one of the Mod-filters are gone now.

And I see there is grafitti in the bathroom stall #2 already... wow.

You will need to get her new address if you wish to send her Christmas cards. She will have to move soon due to the construction of the Diamer-Bhasha Dam.

Here we have an eye-witness account by a Forum Admin that the TF is not only REAL, but gets intoxicatingly-giddy on sugar and grenadine syrup...

Heh! I'd say Anything Goes in Thailand, especially if the TF was hanging out in Bangkok!

Jake,

With such colorful banter as that, I nominate YOU to be the one that gives HER a title!

Uh -oh!

I just noticed that myself and several others have lost their titles. Hopefully this wasn't done by a disgruntled staffer.
I liked the various titles that we all had, despite the fact that they weren't exactly flattering. I hope we get 'em back.
