As mentioned in earlier posts, I do not have anyone on the ignore list, moderators or not. In fact, I have not found any moderator's post offensive or annoying.

Occasionally, I ran across some annoying posts, particularly during the election, but I have learned to be amused by other people's thinking rather than to get upset by it. Life is too short, and I am already of the somber type in real life. I do not come here to offend or to get upset by anyone.

Recently had my first deleted post. I can commend the mods it was good one to delete.

As OAG said though I think he may have plagarized from Rodney King "can't we all just get along"

I thought OAG made clear that "he" (Rodney King) was given full credit.

Furthermore, I think OAG may have been paraphrasing, as a Google search shows that Mr. King may have said "Can't we all just get along?" or "Can't we get along?" or "Why can't we all just get along?" or "Why just can't we just all get along?" and so no plagiarism was involved

People have apparently forgotten recovered from the trauma of the days when H0kus and Cut-Throat were moderators.

If we could survive that, there doesn't need to be any concern over the current crop of moderators!

That sarcasm's too subtle for me! But to answer your question, Cut-Throat posts here: Retire Early Home Page Discussion Board :: Index

and H posts here: Rob Bennett's Best of Hocomania Discussion Forum - Index
