Does Cecil ever participate in the SDMB?

You dispute the Master.
Your "proof" had better be very, very good.

If all the times are listed in the Central time zone, how is it that Doug Bowe posted after me, yet his time states that he posted before me?

Am I hallucinating again? Man... I just gotta lay off the crack...

Once, in the "About this Message Board" forum, he reached across one of my posts to squash an insect.

Serious answer: Only occaisonally. It is said the Master doesn't enjoy using computers and hey, if you were the font of all knowledge, would you speed all that much time on the internet. Also, the shenanigans that go in MPSIMS are probably not interesting to Unca Cece. He does once in a while make comments in a GQ thread that is really interesting. But it's rare.

Paranoid answer: Cecil posts, but only uses his own name for official deals. The rest of the time, he uses aclever alias, much liek the rest of us.

Infidel's answer: There is no Cecil, therefore he cannot post to the MB.

Hope that helps.

You can look up the profile for Cecil Adams and you will see that there are 51 posts under that username. At the top of the profile page there is a link to "all posts by that registered user."

Cecil's Profile: http://www.straightdope.com/cgi-bin/ubbcgi/ubbmisc.cgi?action=getbio&UserName=Cecil+Adams

All posts by Cecil Adams: http://www.straightdope.com/cgi-bin/ubbcgi/search.cgi?action=simplesearch&ForumChoice=ALL&ExactName=yes&SearchUser=Cecil+Adams

Some people will tell you that Ed Zotti and Cecil Adams are the same person. Be that as it may, Ed Zotti usually posts on forum maintenance questions, and Cecil to reaffirm his authority on matters in dispute regarding a column.

Yeah, he's posted before. He commented on my question about one of his columns about Dr Pepper in 'Comments on Cecil's Columns'.

(He said prunes have never been used in Dr Pepper, but I have proof that shows otherwise!!!)

You've got me on that one, but I sure as hell need to start thinking before I post, Its must be the fact that this is finals week and I'm waaaaaaay stressed out.... I'm still pondering a lobotomy after that mistake.

I still want to see the cowgod's proof that Cecil is wrong about the prunes.

Has Cecil ever posted multiple times to one thread? According to the search he contributed 33 times to the Swiss Army Knife thread..but we all know how good the search function is.

Excuuuuuuuse me, but I wrote the Mailbag column about prunes in Dr Pepper; [urlhttp://www.straightdope.com/mailbag/mdrpepper.html[url].

HeadLessCow: I found this one that he posted twice. http://www.straightdope.com/ubb/Forum1/HTML/000320.html ... It's concerning the Creole artical.
I also seem to remember someone saying that they were vindicated because Cecil posted twice and Ed posted once, but I can't find that one.

Ok, so I didn't prove Cecil wrong. I proved JillCat wrong. My mistake. But he did respond to my comment. If you look at the thread you won't see Imthecowgodmoo, you'll see someone else named BeefyLover. I am BeefyLover. I used BeefyLover when I was away from my home computer and for some reason just had to post to the SDMB. I don't use BeefyLover anymore, which is beside the point.... My point was supposed to be that Cecil does in fact post.

by 'thread' I mean http://www.straightdope.com/ubb/Forum6/HTML/000051.html

GOD, I feel just like dying now.....

now go away, let me crawl under a rock and be by myself while I cry myself to sleep...

Guess it's time for a new screen name, eh, Cow? Haha. That's why I'm a moderator. I can go back and delete my own embarrassments if I want (though, cough, of course I've never had to).
Anyway, here are a couple of other threads Cecil has posted to:

http://www.straightdope.com/ubb/Forum1/HTML/000297.html

http://www.straightdope.com/ubb/Forum1/HTML/000155.html

New screen name? NEVER!

(I just had to post this before I left for my break)

I just knew I wasn't going insane, for I have found the thread that Cecil responded to a feable minded cow god. Go here (http://www.straightdope.com/ubb/Forum1/HTML/000040.html) and you'll see that 1)I didn't prove him wrong 2)I thought Magic Johnson got rid of Aids and 3)I found out how to 'double post'

Thank you for you time, don't forget to tip your waitresses, drive safely and I'll see you all next year
