Coldfire please change your name

Coldfire as a moderator you need to do more to fight ignorance, not promote it. Your user name gives the impression that fire can be cold. Don't give me any crap that a fire is cold compared to the sun or some such bullshit; fire gives off heat, not cold.

I encourage everyone to let Coldfire know you want a name change to Hotfire. I mean, come on, even Frankenstein knew fire was hot.

Please use this link if you have any questions about fire and heat.

I would like to report this fucked up OP to a Moderator, an Administrator, and Uncle Cecil Himself. This Fucktard is wasting our bandwidth and my patience with asinine dribblings of idiocy. It is very painfully obvious to anyone with half a testicle for a brain that this numbnuts get his rocks off posting shit so fucking gawd-awful DUMB that he wants his stupidity pointed out, and is doing this for the attention that must be (surprise, surprise) lacking in his real life.

Please. Someone with authority, PLEASE review this cretin's post history, even starting only with the threads he's begun. I'm begging here.

No, no, no you've got it backwards. The problem lies in the latter part of his name, not the former.

I demand that he change his name to Coldicecream.

Well my first thought would be that this is a joke. However, after viewing BZ00000's thread on Nasa trying to recreate Superman's feat of time travel in a movie, I know BZ00000 is capable of such a stupid notion. So BZ00000 are you a troll or just stupid? And please remember the minimum age of this board is 13. So please leave and return when you get a fucking clue.

I think it's quite apt, actually:

BZ causes [...] stupor, confusion, and confabulation with concrete and panoramic illusions and hallucinations, and with regression to automatic "phantom" behaviors such as plucking and disrobing. The United States weaponized BZ, but demilitarization began in 1988 and is complete.
(Actually, I'm really glad I found that... I was under the impression that BZ was a sort of vapourized LSD -- Actually, it's more like belladonna. Much more effective as a deleriant, I would imagine.)

I would have thought this was a joke too. However, after the Visa Mastercard Commercial fiasco, I don't believe that at all. I think he's really this stupid.

Normally, I would think that the OP was just for funsies, but given his past history (especially the bit about Superman and time travel), I have the nasty feeling that he meant every word of it.

BZOOO, get over yourself.

Not for nuthin', BZ, but I'm a big fan of the question posed here. You've been hitting GQ pretty hard with questions that are so idiotic that the notion which occurs to Wearia and UncleBill has also occurred to me. Your follow-up questions in the Superman Pit thread seriously make me think you're a troll.

So. There we are. If you're trolling, stop or I'll happily erase every bit of evidence of your existence on this board. If you're not, well, I don't know what to say. But you should definitely email me before opening your next GQ thread.

Given the play ground that concrete has over on Fathom and other boards. Given his inane and utterly stupid posts (more ridiculous than this one) I highly doubt it's him.

He's has a cable connection and the IP address is the same most of the time. Unless the mods confirm and with the length of time BZ has been here, I highly doubt it's him.

concrete tends to have....never mind....I just don't think it's him unless he has changed his M.O. here. The OP has been here too long and I am usually very good at picking him out from the SDMB posting mug shots, if you will.

Twas just a hunch. I have seen his ramblings and thought I noticed a similarity. Although I did see his Fathom post that said Lynn shut him down while he was still filling in the reg agreement so he could create a new sock recently. Fascinating. All the same, I seriously doubt anyone could be as stupid as BZ is making himself out to be and still be able to work his toaster, let alone a computer.

particlewill it is possible that I can't work a toaster. I don't like toast and have never tried to make toast.

As for everyone else, how can this be a troll post? I don't like Coldfire's screen name, I gave my reasons. So go ahead and agree or disagree on the merits of the OP.

I'll run these suggestions by BZ00000 and get his permission. These should satisfy the Truth In Screen Names regulation.

The OP has no merit. It is a troll post because it is STUPID. Coldfire's name comes from a song by a band named RUSH. It isn't about fire being cold. Your post about Superman reversing time was STUPID. Almost every post you make screams "I am intentionaly being stupid to get a rise out of people". You cannot posuibly be as dumb as you make yourself out to be and manage to use a computer, let alone navigate the Web. I cry "FAKE!" You are yanking our colective chains here. I can just imagine your rationale here. "Hmm, here is a site that claims to fight ignorance. I think I will act really dumb and see what they do." This is trolling. You are wasting bandwidth. I hope to see BANNED under your name soon.

I thought the OP was funny. I never occurred to me that it was anything other than a joke. I just reviewed some of his other threads and some of them were funny too. Like the one in the Pit about the Visa ad. He can't tell when two black people are identical twins while accusing them of implying that all black people look alike? That's comedy. I think he's a troll, but I'd like to keep him.

Well, if it's a joke....If I remember correctly that joke threads are NOT allowed in the Pit. Joke or not, it's just plain fucking stupid.

Good Word. People really like to start the most lamest shit sometimes.

BZ00000000 or however many zeros there are in there, your name makes no sense to me either....so fuck off and whatever. BZ000000, bitch zone 00000? big dickhead zone 00000? big fuckedupasshole 00000? Huh? You have no room to talk. Geezus.

I don't hold any Mod or admin to a higher pedestal than the other....come to think of it, none of them are on a pedastal. But your rant is really fucked up and lame.

Geezus.

I always liked guys like B0Z0 when I was in school. He lowers the curve. Makes me feel smarter.

But if you lower the curve too much, too often, they send you off to the special class and make you ride the short bus.

Now boarding, the big yellow bus back to school. Everyone who's supposed to be on this bus please form a single-file line by the door-- Whoa, not so fast B0Z0...
