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"?

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.

Good point, although it spoils the symmetry of the copycat somewhat.

Of course, I could edit Fantasy Fishing to add the serious tag too.

A better, nerdier copy cat thread might be Fantasy Phishing

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

But punch means a hit with a closed fist, that'd have been a tautology.

I thought copycat threads were much frowned upon at that incredibly nerdy civ site?

Some people there probably do frown upon them. JM and I are the moderators ( ) and neither of us give a crap.

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.

Tizzy does that too, though generally only after she's been drinking. Or I've been drinking.
