I could really do without the bacon hijacks. It seems like a small group of people are deciding to be censors and declaring threads no longer worthy of continuing on, so they take over with the bacon. If you don't like a thread, just put that thread on ignore and move on. Please.

Looks like some people don't like pork...even though it's the other white meat.

You could also put that small group of people on ignore and not try and dictate what people choose to post.

Please.

Hey, Andy, can we get an ignore feature for bacon?

I suppose we could tag all bacon threads and ignore that tag.

That doesn't change the effect that you've just bullied other people from posting in a thread that still might interest some.

Best I could do on a bacon bully...and in all seriousness, Runningbum, I only enjoy the bacon coming in when a thread has disintegrated into name-calling and complaints are pouring into mod central. Then, bring on the bacon!

Wow, I almost feel bad, but I'm buoyed by the fact that I'm now considered "a small group".

I'm not sure which thread you're whining about, but perhaps you can point out the thread in which all reasoned debate had been exhausted and the name calling wasnt about to start?

While I may not be a moderator, I've been around a lot longer than you have and contributed quite a bit more, junior. So I will reserve the right to try and lighten things up a little when I think they're going in the wrong direction. The board owner and real moderators know where I am and how to reach me if they disagree. I think in general that they've got enough work to do and dont want to be the bad guys all the time.

But like I said, you're welcome to put me on your ignore list. Then you wont have to suffer with any more matters involving salted, smoked pork bellies.

Best Economy in 50 Years for one. Not started by you but you joined in. That's why I called it a small group.

I see. So posting a better looking picture of a bacon maple bar is considered bullying. And dang it, I'm no longer a small group. Very disappointing. I should point out that twelve regular posters participated in that bacon level discussion and not one person seemed interested in putting the discussion back on course. Why dont you hop over there and express whatever burning issue you felt needed to be added but was left unaddressed. I promise I wont mess you up with any more breakfast foods in that thread.

Oh, and you have a nice life now.

Our spam fighting capes change color with our moods, but they smell like...bacon!

I took a gander at that thread, and BWW was the first thread derailer, and it seems that lots of folks had a real good time with that bacon bra thing, and then 2B and Enuf managed to get some quality on-topic posts in there followed by some more bacon. Yep, looks about right for a thread on this forum.

It's kinda supposed to be funny, ya know, like entertainment instead of work. Seriously.

Guess I hit a nerve. Funny too, since I never even mentioned you by name in the first post.

Just like underwear! Well...I hope...

Is it always something about ReWahoo or does the target subject change daily?

No... It's been an equal opportunity signature, different each day.
