Agreed, but life without a lil' fun ain't worth living. I am glad that you guys can see the humor in this as its only purpose was to be silly.


right on. maybe next time you take a picture like that make a goofy face so we know you're kidding. the face you make in the olympia posedown next to jay and dexter should do just fine lol. props for being such a down to earth guy as to respond to our posts.



and i call for the demotion of tech as admin if he is SERIOUSLY ridiculing the pro who is the image for our site.

Ridicule? It was a post about how even Phil had a typical "MySpace" photo, the kind you see on anyone's page. We'll run the site and make managerial decisions, thanks.

Also, if you're going to use the word "hyperbole", use it correctly.

hmm i guess you and i have different ways of viewing the "facepalm" picture. and i don't think Mr. Heath would have felt the need to explain himself had he not at least partially felt as such.

oh, and for you....

The pic was a joke and Tech made a joke about it. Phil basically confirmed this in his explanation and that should be the end of the issue. There's no need for someone like you, who doesn't have the best history here, to call for the head of an Admin. Again, we know how to run the site and a comment such as yours trivializes Tech's contributions here. Just contribute to the site in a positive manner and let us do our jobs please.

Ribbing is a good word here. Yep. :2:

in all honesty it is you that is doing the bolded. i didn't "call for the head of tech", it WAS an exaggeration (you yourself constantly site the fact that we all can't always infer the way we are saying something because this site and posts are only text based. so i don't fault you for not picking up on what i said, but when i elaborate as to what i meant, you shouldn't tell me what i did and didn't mean). why you feel the need to defend tech instead of tech himself i don't know, you could have approached it like tkD just did jokingly (as partially my initial post was), but instead you tell me to "get off my high horse", which i don't even begin to see the application here but whatever. but let me just make it very clear to tech what i was saying: i know you are a jokester around here, but i don't think it's the best idea to rib the man who is the image of our site, and then do it again comparing him to some mexican doing the same thing.

that's it. sorry for the bitchfest phil.

Yes, it is harder to infer what is meant to be implied but perhaps your aversion to smilies and the like makes it harder to read what you're intending to communicate. Caps-locking the word "seriously" only tells me that, if Tech was being serious, then your statement is intended to be as well. Later you went further by saying the following:

Now you're using terms that are inapplicable to the situation. I've already commented on your labeling the situation as ridicule and don't desire to address it again. The word "ribbing," as Tech described it, is more suitible descriptor. I made my initial comment as a means to communicate that we, as higher-ups, can handle things and we don't need your input on how to deal with such trivial matters. We do need you to contribute your knowledge and personable sense of social relations to the board. Why you press on in regard to the former is entirely beyond me.

Arguing rhetoric with me isn't a good idea.
Duality said:
why you feel the need to defend tech instead of tech himself i don't know, you could have approached it like tkD just did jokingly (as partially my initial post was), but instead you tell me to "get off my high horse", which i don't even begin to see the application here but whatever.
You have a history of over-extending yourself in matters of this realm. Getting off your high horse refers to you not understanding your place here. I'm not in any way implying you're below the Mods or Admins here because that's a rather silly notion and only perpetuates this idea that there's a linear chain of importance here when that's clearly not the case. We're a community, one with different types of people who have different responsibilities to the whole. As I've said, you have yours and we have ours. I've become less personable since becoming an Admin and am also posting differently now because my purpose here has changed.

Okay, and this would have been a more appropriate initial response. Still, the Mexican label isn't really fitting because he could have pulled a picture of any race or gender doing the same thing. It's just a typical myspace photo. If it ruffles feathers, at all, then those people are taking Tech too seriously.

i read the whole post and think it's well done. there's two things i'd like to address;

1. your really splitting hairs in your analysis of my posts. the only real case you have against my post being said jokingly is my selection of the word ridicule as opposed to the word rib. i find them to be rather interchangeable and don't think my use of one over the other shows my intent to be something different than what i've said it's been with the initial post.

Arguing rhetoric with me isn't a good idea.

this statement is belittling and is typically something that would make me very indignant and carry things further. we all know you are intelligent and your fields of interest. there's no need to make a statment like this. i was reading the post and more or less agreeing with everything until this little hiccup was thrown in there. smart people don't have to remind everyone they're smart line.

I find there's a large difference between the meaning of these two words. "Rib" is synonymous with a joking menality. "Ridicule"? Not so much.

I'm glad you're showing restraint.

It wasn't meant to remind you that I was smart, or well read, or a good wordsmith, etc. I took issue with you actually arguing that I was misinterpreting what was being said and attempting to use my own point against me, in improper context to boot. It was the proverbial explanation point on my argument, a dispute that I felt was unnecessary from the get-go and expanded for no foreseeable reason. Still, kudos for being the bigger man and not overreacting to it and, because of this, I apologize.
