View Full Version : Moral Dilemma

The situation:

You have somehow ended up as the Off Topic moderator of an incredibly nerdy Civ site. Under the Off Topic umbrella is the "Sports Forum" where, much like our own sports forum, a large number of fantasy sports games reside.

Recently someone started a thread called "Fantasy Fishing" (which I think was a joke). Regardless, the dilemma is as follows. Do you start a copycat called "Fantasy Fisting"?

Funko

I did, obviously. Just wondering what you'd do.

I'd do that but only with a [serious] tag in the title thread to avoid confusion.

Funko
16-07-2010, 10:27:56
Good point, although it spoils the symmetry of the copycat somewhat.

Funko
16-07-2010, 10:28:19
Of course, I could edit Fantasy Fishing to add the serious tag too.

A better, nerdier copy cat thread might be Fantasy Phishing

[seriously serious]

does serious fisting involve the elbow?

Funko
16-07-2010, 10:49:17
Huh? It's about punching someone on the nose.

It's not Fantasy Elbowing you Drekkus!

Then you should have written: "It's about punching someone on the nose with your fist"

Funko
16-07-2010, 11:09:02
But punch means a hit with a closed fist, that'd have been a tautology.

Funko I'll buy you two beers if you give me your password there and show me how to use the admin tools.

Funko

Damn.

:(

I don't know how to use the Admin Tools.

Ok, one beer if you give me your password there and show me how to use the moderator tools.

I thought copycat threads were much frowned upon at Apolyton?

Maybe I should have read "moral dilemma 2" before posting that. :cute:

Funko
16-07-2010, 15:26:31
Some people there probably do frown upon them. JM and I are the moderators ( :lol: ) and neither of us give a crap.

a frown is a smile turned upside down... seriously, punch anyone who says that to you

JM^3
16-07-2010, 19:08:38
Damn.

:(

I don't know how to use the Admin Tools.

I don't either. I have never thought of it as a problem.

Nor have I until it cost me 2 beers!

Post in the meet thread! What's your plan?

I was thinking the same thing as Greg.

mr_B
17-07-2010, 07:09:36
that's scary

Yes it is! I hope mr_B can help!

He's amazingly versatile. He can be a foot rest, a place to put your beer, a coat rack and an underwater bridge designer all in one. If we could market him, I bet we could get 29.99 plus shipping and handling.

I was thinking the same thing as Greg.Tizzy does that too, though generally only after she's been drinking. Or I've been drinking. :beer:

Clearly too tempting not to do it.:D

A thread titled "What is the dollar value of..."

with text: What is the dollar value of love? Friendship? Wisdom? Honor? Spirituality?

A thread titled "What is the dollar value of..."

with text: "Your mum?"

Oh dear.

Terribly childish. Hopefully the poster who did that will be banned.

I don't have the rights to ban myself.

which was that movie, where the famous actor was teaching street punching to the rookie, like:
- when you punch, keep your elbow high
- why?
- because if you miss with the fist, following thru with the swing your elbow will meet his mug

MOVIE FORUM?
