More grist for the mod mill

Congrats, Marquette. But I wonder -- isn't the market meltdown enough punishment for one year?

Shhh! We are an opportunistic lot and take advantage of 'em when they're not paying attention. We're hoping Marquette views this as a positive experience

Oh boy, what a loaded question.

If I get a vote, I'd request, Khan, that you add 5000 points to the Dow by the end of this week. The other 1,000 you could do next week.

Bring candy for your favorite moderator. Don't argue for a day.

I'll be selling bannings all day. $5 for 3 days. $10 for 7 days. Perma-bans will cost quite a bit more.
