A suggestion for the UBB script in General

Features? From the UBB? You're kidding, right?

—Alorael, who would rather see a way to turn post counts off, or at least edit post counts. Maybe spammers would be less enthusiastic if they didn't get any obvious mark of "respect" for their behavior.

Arctic's porn stash isn't something you want, Khoth, even if you are starting to worry about your tastes in, ah, art.

—Alorael, who avoids Arctic's porn whenever possible. Invisible newbies were never meant to be photographed in certain acts, invisible or not.

Pues, no soy una rana. No puedo hablar el francés mejor que TM. No puedeo hablar peor tampoco, porque él es el peor, pero no puedo hablar mejor que él.

—Alorael, who wonders if Drakey bans Spanish along with all languages but French. That seems a little unfair...

I do not miss the lock button, sir.

—Alorael, who simply chooses not to snipe it. After all, this discussion is so delightful... Although this talk of lurking evil is troublesome.

"Je suis le mort" means "I am death" in French. Usually it's followed by "por vous," meaning "for you," but not always.

—Alorael, quien es la muerte para ti. En español. ¡Y en español que no está muerte, también!

Chaz, you were part of Spiderweb, but you left before I came (or returned, if you count my brief previous incarnation). Zingoleb was never here at all, so any welcomes aren't really welcomes back.

—Alorael, who also isn't sure if a single post saying you're back counts as being back. This whole topic is rather amusing.

That is a suitable response to a different kitten. It's also an amusing song, although I happen to like kittens, thank you very much.

—Alorael, who was greatly reminded of Tom Lehrer. The singing style was different, but the humor is definitely Lehreresque.

Open the email and enjoy the free... I mean... send a letter of complaint to said executive!

—Alorael, who would be thankful, actually. It may be porn spam, but at least it's honest porn. With real government emails you never know where you stand.

That depends on the kind of Christianity you follow. Some don't believe in last-minute salvation. Some believe in predetermination, so you might as well sin all the time because you've already got your one-way ticket reserved.

—Alorael, who has problems with the idea of a carrot and stick model of salvation. Yes, it gets the job done (if you agree with religious morality), but surely a more discerning divinity would have a more fair and rational justice system.

He posted once at most when he first registered a year ago, then vanished. Now he's posting an "I'm back!" topic after that one post, or maybe even no posts.

—Alorael, who feels a little odd saying welcome back when he does not, in fact, think of Zingoleb as someone who left. He was just an invisible newbie for a year before arriving.

The bug was from a corruption of the profile of account 2475. Linda replaced the account with a placeholder to fix the problem. Unfortunately, that means that the account is gone, so wizard6 has to start again.

—Alorael, who hopes UBB is working on the problem. It's probably not just on Spiderweb, and it's a huge nuisance and irritation to those who are deleted.

Linda has spoken. The corrupted profile and some corrupted topics caused the board shut-down. Everything is fixed now, hopefully.

—Alorael, who sadly reports that General has been pruned as well. So much bable lost forever...

With only two trait slots and the ability to reach the cap at even fairly low levels, I can't imagine that many people would choose ambidexterity besides new players who aren't aware of the problem.

—Alorael, who still thinks Jeff won't want to bother working in the programming for a minor and not even terribly useful change.

I dislike lyrics. This odd musical preference restricts me mainly to classical music, so it's a good thing I like it. Some jazz is good too, namely the wordless variety, and there are some other nice "songs" without singing, but I listen mainly to classical from medieval to late romantic. Yes, I am a very strange individual

—Alorael, who can receive the label of "arrogant holier-than-though pseudo-intellectual" instead of "indie rock poseur." It would probably be an accurate description, too.

Science, with the possible exception of psychology, is amoral, but that shouldn't be a problem since most people don't live their lives by the principles of, say, biology. The problem is that religion provided an ethical code, and the vacuum has not been filled by anything. Society (yes, that vague and omnipresent institution) should be able to replace churches as the moral guide, but most educational institutions seem less and less willing to discuss ethics and morals when hard facts are so much easier to deal with.

—Alorael, who supposes certain extremely "devout" capitalists would say that ethics are entirely unnecessary, but social Darwinism hasn't had a brilliant track record so far.

Speaking of signatures and links, I think you want your signature either to contain The Club of All or simply .]http://com2.akheva.com/btheclubofall]. To get it copied right, quote this post and copy the pertinent part.

—Alorael, who is pained by broken tags even more than broken links, mainly because they're no more functional and they're ugly as well.

The difference is that being crippled genuinely makes your life more difficult. I don't think anyone would want it. Being homosexual makes absolutely no difference in your life besides who you fall in love with and who decides to hate you because of that. Nobody told that cripple that he was bad for being born crippled. He chose to walk for himself, nobody chose for him.

—Alorael, who can't believe he's even arguing this. The entire premise is not only wrong but disgusting.

Topic resurrection is usually not appreciated unless there is a real need for the topic to return, but there are no rules against it.

—Alorael, who doesn't think this is a terrible case of revival. At least some new life was brought into the topic instead of a simple *bump*.

OM, you can just put the link in your signature instead of posting it over and over.

—Alorael, who could even see some catchy jingles to go along with it. Desperance sure won't mind any plagiarism.

Mod Survivor was, if I'm not mistaken, a bit of Ikonboard fun and games. Since I wasn't around for it, I don't know any more.

Einstein saw himself as Jewish, but he did not affiliate himself with Jewish religious organizations. Still, he was a supporter of Zionism, and he did leave Germany because of Nazism.

—Alorael, who remembers learning that Newton believes in God as the being who set the universe in motion and then sat back to watch it. That doesn't match the Judeochristian God very well.

If I discovered more of the laws that keep our universe from spontaneously making absolutely no sense from moment to moment, I'd be pretty impressed by the planning that went into it too.

—Alorael, who would say it all comes down to whether you think spontaneous creation or supreme, all-powerful being(s) are more likely. Both are far-fetched ideas, which is why there have been several thousand years of warfare, on and off, over who is right and who is wrong.

I couldn't live near other skribbane users for their own good. I'd be forced to kill them. As for my sniping exploits, how many pedestrians do you think there are in forests? And how many in major urban centers? Yes, Lorelei sounds very nice.

—Alorael, who is sure he could work out a deal with the guards. Maybe something along the lines of "I am allowed to import skribbane, and in return I don't kill you." Ah, yes, that sounds very feasible.

Congratulations to all the newly betrothed. You'll forgive me if I start the legal prosecution of any offspring you may have immediately, I hope.

—Alorael, who is also greatly disturbed by the "Spanish" above. It's even more dead than certain individuals' French. Si fuera escrito en inglés, alguién moriría la muerte de guadaña.

I would disagree. Sometimes your life can suck and its absolutely not your fault. A good life, in my opinion, is one that you enjoy without impinging on others' enjoyment, and a great life is one that is enjoyed while helping others enjoy themselves more.

—Alorael, who does believe in a God. Since God is almighty and all that, he presumably has a good system worked out for the afterlife or lack thereof. Since there's not much that can be done about it, there's no reason to worry.
