    So the real world only see's the restrained version, and this is the real you?

    You poor bastard.

    I think we need to have a garamet-centric love-in.

    Me too, would have been the first time in 6 or 7 years. Rosalind doesn't seem to understand about attracting more business.

    Rosalind is the dame we keep running a hamster wheel under the floor to keep the lights on.

    Skrain really took it to a whole new level of pathetic, here, with his "explanation."

    I am actually at a loss for words. And coming from me, that's really saying something!

    Eeesh, that's almost worse than this thread. j/k ;)

    Yanno, I finally deciphered what he was trying to say with that Photoshop, i.e., he's got a problem with Uhura as head of Starfleet Intelligence. Thing is, that wasn't even my idea originally. Two other writers established that in previous novels, and I just went with it.

    Summing up, then: He bought the book three times, never read it, and tried (unsuccessfully) to burn it because the cover offended him.

    Still nothing to do with me. Fascinating. :chris:

    That may be his true power! :shock:

    That's the idea. Dukat's troll was such weak sauce, I figured I might as well at least try to salvage something here and troll you this-a-way:

    1. Establish yourself as a horrible, horrible, evil person that no one who thinks they're a good person would want anything to do with.

    2. Get all lovey-dovey on the person who thinks you're eeeeeeeeeeevilllll.

    But I see from the smiley and the j/k that that wasn't really getting any traction, either. Still, at least mine involved some thought and didn't involve wasting money.

    True, but the basic problem with your scenario is, I don't think you're evil. And since I won't give you an adjective to describe what I think you are, you'll just have to keep guessing. :P

    But I wasn't cool, sorry to say. I thought about shutting it, but I don't mod in there so left it.

    I forgot that TKers would be seeing the thread and responding though. LOLOL. My bad. I should have KNOWN what would happen.

    We don't allow people to whip others' asses, even if they merit it. Pity he didn't post it in TNZ, THEN everyone could have had fun.

    (We don't move stuff to TNZ as a general rule)

    I was disappointed the book didn't really burn.

    The explanation just didn't cut it, either.

    Books don't burn easily. It takes either a lot of other fuel, or spreading the pages out so they can burn individually. Contrary to what is sometimes seen in movies, just throwing a closed book into a fire will hardly damage it, other than the cover. It takes quite a while to actually burn it.

    If you want to have a good old-fashioned book-burning, you better have a lot of wood and a lot of patience. Or you can do it the newer way, with a lot of gasoline.

    Well, I'm not much of a fan of burning books. This was a unique situation. Poor Skrain.

    Shyaddap, woman. I'm evil. EVIL, I say! Why, I rip the tags off the mattress without giving even the tiniest hint of a fuck! I throw kittens into blenders and puppies into Ikea stores without so much as a remorseful toot from my gnarly, evil buttox! Tremble 'n' quake at my evilitude! Or some shit.

    The funny part is that he wasted good money to do this.

    That, plus the fact that he thought this would somehow upset garamet, plus the fact that he had to hide from his "wife" to do it, plus the fact that he didn't even know how to burn a book in the first place, all add up to a totally dismal failure at trolling.

    When you can't contribute something useful to a discussion board, and can't even troll successfully, you might as well just walk away and do something else.

    Ya know, this wouldn't have been so bad if he'd just STFU and just burned the damn book, THEN posted it. Intead he had to brag about DUH, WINNING for a whole week ahead of time.

    Really, guy, you should've just walked away.

    ^ To you, maybe, but that says much more about your interests than it does about Wordforge.

    We have two different threads about energy, multiple threads about politics, religion, and sports. But Fox can't gang up on somebody with the dreaded neg rep bomb, so none of it is of interest.

    It has actually been very instructive to discover, over the last few months, just how incredibly important rep was to a handful of posters.
