I looked at it as an improperly placed thread, pro’lly 'cause the poster was drunk. T’wasn’t a rant. poster was waxing eloquent as it were about the movie, meaning of life and all that shit that we think is deep when we’re drunk.
at least that’s how I took it.
IRT: posting while drunk - we’ve had some notable meltdowns via posting drunk, but I’d see it more as a “if you can’t stand to read what you post while drunk” and /or “can’t seem to obey the rules while posting drunk” than “don’t post while drunk”.
:rolleyes: Jeezus, next it’s gonna be ‘Don’t post while you’re high’ or, ‘Don’t post from work’ or ‘Don’t post if you’re in a bad mood’ I’m all for restrictions, and maybe the post was in the wrong place, but IMO, better it be moved than closed. Pimpy.
I’m usually the last one to kiss up to the mods/admins, but let’s be realistic. The post was in the wrong forum, rambled on in a nonsensical (yet strangely poetic) way and pitted absolutely nothing.
I think y’all can cut Lynn a break in this case. Doesn’t she take enough crapola to have to explain why she locked that post? And do we really need folks to nitpick and ask things like what constitutes PUI?
This looks a bit like a self-referential joke posting to me. Lynn hand-tore me a new one when I posted a parody pitting several months ago; no mercy, no forgiveness. I learned my lesson, but I think I’m still probably on her s**t list.
Yes, she does take a lot of crapola. It comes with the non-paying job. All the mods and admins are suckers, if you ask me. Taking all that abuse just because they love this place.
Still, when an Admin says “Please don’t post while you’re drunk” we need to make it very clear what is meant. I’m hoping she’ll come in here and say she meant "Please don’t post while you’re drunk, Eleusis and then this will all be an unpleasant misunderstand which we will laugh about with our grandkids.
