The ATA forum cracks me up.
It reminds me of the "Soup Nazi" episode from 'Seinfeld'.
"One mulligatawny" / "Why did my thread get locked?"
"You want bread? No soup for you!" / "Locking"

I think it is the neat little way in which the threads are stacked and the way there is only one or two replies to each thread. It reminds me of the stiff way in which people had to enter and order soup from the "Soup Nazi". When ever I see a locked thread in there I always think to myself "No soup for you!"

8. I've had threads locked, deleted, posts deleted...
Doesn't bother me. I know I can be a bit of a hothead sometimes.

And anyway, it's not my site. Moderating 40,000 people has to be a chore sometime, and I don't feel like complaining about my posts getting deleted.

Half the time, I probably deserved it. :evilgrin:

3. Reminds me of the idiotic flap over Janet Jackson at the Super Bowl.
It's just a tit, folks. Not the collapse of Western Civilization.

4. It's become my favorite forum
It's like a giant revolving door.

7. LOL
No.

But I once got a tit stuck in a revolving door. Made a mammogram feel like a walk in the park.

6. Me too! I love that forum!
MAN, do people get pissy about stuff. I find it amazingly funny. Then the other half of the posters are amazingly polite and almost shy at times. "Sorry to bother you, O Admins, BUT...."

9. And don't forget the suck-up posts! I leave one a month.
You never know when it might help.
