Uppity Irrelevance?

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..

But.

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..

There's too many new members, joining for the sole purpose to be silly, not in anyway helpful to us. It's a shame, really. We're losing an image we've had for ages. Now The Dark Lords it something all the kids want to be part of just to say they are part of it. Bleh, it saddens me

I'm sorry I'm not more of a credit to the title - I barely get time to come on here anymore unfortunately, although in a couple of months or so you won't be able to get me off here, so hopefully I'll be able to do more to earn my uppity annoyance name!

Yeah, yay! I wasn't talking about you Ames. Those of us who are Uppity love you. I know how it is to not have time, believe me..We know that when you are here you're a great asset to the group though..

That's good to hear Falco. There have been times recently that I was sure the uppity thread was going through it's death throes. I am sure that it has only been allowed to remain open to contain the silliness to one or 2 threads. no.gif

Indeed, i've had a few chats with the other mods and Saruman, we decided that closing it would probably cause more problems rather than solving, so it's stayed open for pretty much that reason alone.

Don't worry Burnsy, my man. I'm working hard to address this problem. I'd rather have many less members and a lot more pride and respect..

We do like to screw around but it's gotten way overboard than when last I was here..

Of course, having a beer and a laff is what the SNBOUA crew was half about. laugh.gif

Glad to see some action being taken by the big man in the crew to rectify the situation. thumbsup.gif

Oh...Do I detect some dishonourable discharges in the future? That'll be fun to watch.

The WNWO got shut down too. Intolerable off-topic ness engulfed it by enemeys of the WO. But the WNWO remains unseen.......but very much still around....?
