Well, I'm afraid that I'm guilty of answering advertisers in a way that makes light of their offers. Knowing nothing about computer stuff, I had no idea about the grief I have caused. So, if you would allow me to apologize right here and now, I am sorry for there and then.
On a somewhat related matter, I could possibly see myself as a moderator. However, I would need to know if it would be necessary to for me to be trained in the proper use of a Ban-Stick. I don't think it would be necessary, as I am very creative. In the event that someone displays a blatant disregard for the rules, I know how to deal with it. My methods would be . . . unorthodox, but highly effective.
For instance, if somebody screws up, I would immediately force everyone but the offending poster to evacuate the thread. Then I lock the thread with just me and them in it. That's when I pull out my Ban-Stick and bang it a couple of times against the thread wall just for effect. Once I have their attention, they'll try to hide, but because a spammer is usually the only one in the thread they've started, there's really no place for them to hide.
That's when the fun--er--moderation begins. Using my Ban-Stick, I take them to the point of being banned, and then let up. Then I wait. And just when their little spamming fingers are in position above their keyboard ready to strike again, I use my Ban-Stick to once again take them to the point of being banned, but let up just before they're completely banned. And we can do that allllllll night! Once I've completely banned them, they will not come back, I assure you. If they do, I would be the most surprised.
