Don't you think this was a pretty rude way to inform him of that, whoiam? In future, when a newcomer misses something like this, point it out directly to him or her in the relevant thread.

Oh. So you did. This is what I get for not paging back.

My apologies, whoiam. And A person, don't flout the rules of the threads you're in. Sure, these are just meaningless Misc threads -- but if we can't control those, what can we control?

And if these fall out of our control, they could spread and multiply with the ability of thread-tribbles to hundred-thousand-word posts and before wednesday at 3:02pm, the internet could be brought to its knees!


And, so you see, to avoid this tragedy, you should never eat paper towels.

... and a triumph for diplomatic theorists everywhere.
