Well, I'm not shy. 46, and perhaps one or two more pending.

I suspect at least 35 of them are on enforced permanent vacations, but it's tough to figure that out from the member list.

If you are old, why are you practicing, haven't you learned how to do it (whatever it is) by now?

Anyway, isn't this a thread for lawyer jokes?

Is there a global ignore function? I think I'll just put EVERYONE on ignore. After all, I'm the only one with anything to say that is worth reading.

(And if you missed the SATIRE in that post, you might actually become the first person I ever put on ignore )

What? Did you say something? <grin> I didn't hear a thing!
But we all know what the "global ignore function" is already, right?

You may laugh, moderator padawan, but at one time such a feature was seriously discussed for the likes of H0cu$ and JohnGalt (the 2004 original model, not the recent versions)... they would have been able to post to their heart's content and never would have noticed that no one was ever responding directly to them.

(*thunk-thunk*) Hello? Is this thing on?

I've jokingly suggested this feature in recent months, I didn't know it had been seriously discussed in the past.

I've heard rumors that when Wikileaks is finished with BofA and Russia, they're going after the moderator's board next...
