To start with…
Well…this blatant attempt to protect other Admin’s and Mod’s does kind of put a warp in my reasoning…
Regardless of what you think Manny, what’s happening DOES look like that. And everybody see’s it.
You closing that thread like that makes you look like a sycophantic asswad.
Is there a reason that you closed that besides you don’t like seeing an admin raked over the coals?
Xploder, when I closed those threads I admonished people that opening a new one on the subject would be an extremely poor idea. In email communication to you, I specifically told you that doing so would be cause for banning.
Then you went and did it. I closed the thread. And here you do it again.
Accordingly, you are banned from the Straight Dope Message Board.
