I’d like to just take a moment and shine the spot light on one of our more recent members here at the Straight Dope: FarmerOak.
I have been following his latest contributions to the various fora, and find that his postings are witty, informative, accurate (where applicable), pert, and bold when necessary.
He has made only limited contributions to Great Debates, but that small piece of quality work rivals almost anything I have personally posted in that forum. Expect to see more of him in GD soon!
To date he has posted to twelve threads in GQ, each addition a delicious tidbit painted with the skill of an accomplished artist’s brush. Solid material with just a hint of comic relief.
Moving on to IMHO, he offers sage advice such as:
And a FarmerOak classic:
Diving a little deeper down into the mysterious well of the Oak man’s soul, we have the mirror turned upon ourselves, forcing us to confront a harsh reality:
But never afraid to place himself under the magnifying glass, we discover some deeply personal & troubling aspects of a Farmer’s life. Quoth FarmerOak:
Sigh… sometimes the details are best revealed under a cold and sterile light.
And if you think a man of such poignant wisdom would not lower himself to enter the world of MPSIMS, think again. In less than two hundred posts, the Oak man has already received his first warning for flipping the virtual bird to authority. I’ve been here over two years with hardly a finger-shaking from the mods for any of my reckless behaviour.
And finally, a delightful Pit performance where we watch Farmer beat the beejays out of Scoo Guy with his own ugly stick.
Keep an eye out for this poster, everybody! For therein lies the makings of one of the SDMB’s most dynamic personalities. So what happens to FarmerOak in the future? Only time will tell for sure, but I’m laying odds on him becoming:
- A moderator
- A moderator, and then getting banned
I think Carina42 said it best when she said:
C’mon, Farmer… step up to the podium and say a few words!
