...to tackle the trolls which appear once the gin bottle(s) is/are empty and MNHQ have staggered off to bed.grin

I warn you though...I am not cheap ..but may accept wine in lieu of payment...and promise not to engage with said trolls by trying to help them see the error of their ways....honest.

But is it better to have a sweaty fanny and rivulets of perspiration running down your legs and pooling in your sandals? <very hot here>

Ooh, I've got a new washing machine as well! I'm so relieved! I've worn my last pair of knickers inside out and back to front, and was going to have to go to work commando style tomorrow! That is NEVER good when you've got to stand on a market and there's snow forecast! confused
Frostbite of the flange is a terrible thing...

ripsishere Fri 22-Mar-13 00:35:00

I haven't had an email.
I do have a new washing machine which is by the by. I am easily excited.

Just a lid would have been polite. There was no need for the 4 inch thick concrete sealant with armed guards. Seemed a bit excessive.

montmartre Thu 21-Mar-13 23:15:05

Aw, poor Pan... did they tell you to put a lid on it?

Pan Thu 21-Mar-13 23:06:13

I got an email from HQ. It read..."Not on your nelly". Which was a bit uncalled for, I thought.

I thought I had been left out of another quiche. Night-time mods quiche...

FloatyBeatie Thu 21-Mar-13 23:02:19

grin Ah well. I'm sure it's very interesting.

montmartre Thu 21-Mar-13 22:58:34

grin I wish!

It was actually 'Parenting News'... wink

FloatyBeatie Thu 21-Mar-13 22:42:43

Ooh Have they offered you the job Montmartre?

montmartre Thu 21-Mar-13 22:36:54

Anyone else get an email from MNHQ today?

GetOeuf Thu 21-Mar-13 07:43:36

Haha chaos that's great, love the logarithms and wet fingers in the wind, appeals to my scientific nature.

PseudoBadger Thu 21-Mar-13 05:26:57

After 9 obvs after everyone's had a jolly good brekkie.

PseudoBadger Thu 21-Mar-13 05:26:20

We could unleash the time bomb.... She who must not be named? Or we could say M*t*oo 3 times whilst looking into a mirror? Then MNHQ will appear.

See, we're all here. Where are MNHQ? WHERE ARE THEY? I really want a red button.

ripsishere Thu 21-Mar-13 03:03:22

I like that idea, local site for those of us spread far and wide. It is a small gene pool though...

duchesse Thu 21-Mar-13 02:51:15

Hey, we could become a local site, for local people, and develop an extremely small gene pool! Surely some of the people already registered -who didn't register with the express purpose of trolling- might be motivated to become trolls in their turn, since there'd be a gap in the market?

My twopenneth.

Stop all new registrations totally.

It big enough here as it is.

Good cross section of socirty.

Open up a distillery for extra revenue.

Hide threads with more than X (defined by complex logarithm and wet fingers in wind) reports during the twilight zone. To be assessed in the morning.

There.

Easy.

Noneedtothankme.

The Invasion on Monday night was done by posters who had previously registered. Quarantine wouldnt have worked.

Pan Thu 21-Mar-13 00:07:45

erm...men parents have those demands too!!

Quarentined regs is a good short term idea?

duchesse Thu 21-Mar-13 00:03:39

What I think might help is to have any nighttime new registration held in quarantine for a few hours to vet it.

duchesse Thu 21-Mar-13 00:00:42

OP smile

montmartre Wed 20-Mar-13 23:49:44

Not parents? shock

I suppose you'll be suggesting they might be men next! wink

Pan Wed 20-Mar-13 23:41:28

Well, yes but proposed volunteer mods don't need to be parents of those children which are demanding all of those tasks, at all.

The employment world is v fluid and inceasingly quite 'specialist'. IF MNHQ can help promote, and benefit from, skills and aptitudes of bright people with an attachment to the site then every sensible business model in existence says they should go for it.
