Allow me to explain, kids.
This is not a power trip. It also helps to know, in addition to Lynn’s information, that moderators are not online 24 hours a day. Sometimes, they even are away from the boards for a few days. In these instances, we help each other out. Hence my moderating in GQ.
Now, for the BigFoot thread that got locked. I merely fixed Astroboy’s link at first, but then I went on to the site that Astro had provided. And guess what: I found the exact thing The Assailant was looking for. Well, not entirely: I found some stills, whereas he wanted the movie itself.
HOWEVER, right underneath the stills, a note was displayed, in about a 25 point font: “THE MOVING IMAGES ARE NOT AVAILABLE ON THE NET”. I figured that our little pal here would read that, and go about his business. Hey, fixed a link, AND answered the question. I’m sure the OP will be delighted.
He wasn’t: he said “Thanks, but I really want the movie”.
Hilarity ensued. Oh, hell, read it for yourself over here.
The Assailant was being an ass, so I locked the thread. I did the very same with all his “complaint” threads. They belong in the Pit, as I told him in the initially locked thread.
In short: no power trip, and no chip on my shoulder. Just plain common sense. Something which apparently is not one of The Assailant’s traits.
