So I'm human, with all that entails, alright?
Every once in awhile this board slows down, new topics are rare and you find you've debated everything at least 5 times. So I take an occasional month or so off to recharge my UM battery..
I had hoped upon my return I would find my beloved Uppity annoyance a strong and wise prescence on the boards. There was really no reason to think otherwise..
But this time was different. I've returned to a vast sea of off-topic time-wasters; random lunatics and general layabouts..
There are exceptions of course, and you know who you are, so don't all be offended...But I wonder what happened to the vision I held so dear; and the ideal that was shared by all of us together at the beginning?
Too many people it seems, just want to own the title but want to do absolutely nothing to earn it. In doing so they cheapen the group they wanted to belong to so badly. And that's where we are today I guess..
We have done something special and lasting here. something that had never happened before...We made the believers question. We also made them sharpen thier wits and posting skills considerably..No longer can someone just come on here and make some outrageous claim and expect some head nodding and pats on the back. And even fellow believers will now turn on someone who ignorantly disregards basic grammar or writes solely in text-speak..This board has become a far more intelligent place for discussion...
To quote the Mighty Moe.."No need to thank us!"
And lest you hopefully look forward to this entry as a final farewell to Uppity Annoyance; think again..
As long as I exist the Dark Lords will never truly be gone. The Dread Knights of Uppity are growing in numbers every day. We will make ourselves great again or burn down the house and rebuild from the ashes..
Spring cleaning is coming..
