So, are you saying you lost your life?

Ephesos might be interested in hearing about that.

You're lucky, we didn't have the Internet when I was in high school. We had to use tin cans and string to connect.

Thus came about the word "ping". You'd literally have to flick the tin to make a noise to see if the other person was listening.

"Ping" in this sense was originally a sonar term, I believe.

New forum software needs a "nudge" feature to knock people out of their gullible state.

Yes. And it's very cold and dreary here in Misc, so any help would be appreciated.

Drupal already has a gullibility detector module. Perhaps UBB.Threads has one too? I don't know.

Yeah, that's what I thought too. I believe my explanation was much better though.

Gentlemen, the past eight years have been spent here. In that time our community has endured great hardship, and suffering. Through all that, we have stood firm against terror, strife, poverty, Ed, warfare, Ed, spambots, crashes, Ed, violence, Ed, dimished profit returns, graphic conversions, Ed, flamefests, debates, mall-shootings, RP's, Ed, noobs, newbies, leet-speakers and Ed even. Clearly, this has shown that our community that we have forged with our own blood, sweat, toil and tears can endure against all threats the great unknown wiles of the internet can throw at us.

But truly, we stand at a crosswords, for while our mighty will has carried us through the trials that have smeared us and imprisoned us in ttombs of lies and flames, the ground we stand upon is falling away. As we depart this ancient and fabled hall that has been our strong tower into which we have run from the evil, let us never forget how without this place, our great and glorious community might never have been born.

What are you talking about? You certainly haven't been here for eight years. Also, I think you meant "crossroads."

There were more and worse noobs than Ed, Jeran. Nalyd wasn't here for them either, but he knows that much.

Oh no! This means my impressive post count of some hundred will be zeroed! It took me years to reach this high.

No, no: Aran was quite right. The link he provided was a fully effective gullibility detector.

You know, I expected it to be some kind of joke, but I suppose I fell for it by clicking the link.

It could also be perceived as all the times Ed came back.
