    No, but thanks for the invite...


    Cool - I can stop quivering in my boots now...


    Don't be...


    "esperience" is great, but not perfect. Now please excuse me, I'm having a new friend for dinner...

    But you aren't even who you are pretending to be. You're affecting out an ingenuine style of communication in order to have an impact on how others view you, probably in order to make people think you are secretly complex. Before he disappeared, Baron Max used a similar "old pastoral retard" approach. For him it actually wasn't an act, though he never realized it.

    True believers are faithful to their natural way of communication, so that rules you out of the honest people group.

    just for the record if i am a mod i would be fair, just, and i would listen people to become a better mod. I would not instill my views on threads simply because i was a mod

    With a vengeance. So if you become moderator, than this forum stands for dishonesty, fraudulence and deceit. I do not think that is anywhere near where management wants to head. So be happy that you are posting, don't push your luck by trying to be a mod. :bugeye:

    Are you kidding me? Hes an artist, if he pisses you off thats your problem and you should think exactly why he pisses you off. Your interpretation of his presentation is not his problem.

    To be a moderator he needs to pass only one test: is he fair? If yes, then anything else is secondary.

    We already have plenty of articulate mods with a superior vocabulary who do a crappy job of moderation.

    Um.. so you think he's spelling like that on purpose?
    I am undecided about that, but if he is that would disqualify him for any mod position imo.

    Err...:bugeye:...I am slightly concerned the somehow everything in the art section will somehow have rap attached to it...

    Rapping De Vinci

    The Hip Hop of Van Gogh

    Underground Gangster Picasso...

    :facepalm:

    I will make sure rap will not be mixed with classical masterpieces.

    I nominate myself for the free thoughts section. I would be fair and considering my background...I've had a lot of free thoughts!

    To be honest I don't think I know enough about Art and Culture to qualify myself there, I studied it in College, got A's through hard work (many of the other student's failed or got lower grades...thinking the courses would be easy like back in elementary school...oops), but there is a lot to know there, that much I know. I am more familiar with many cultures then I am art, but...no...I am no expert on either.


    If I qualify for anything, it would be free thoughts. It is your discretion so I'll simply wait for the outcome.

    artist:
    1 a obsolete : one skilled or versed in learned arts b archaic : physician c archaic : artisan 1 Does not apply.
    2 a : one who professes and practices an imaginative art b : a person skilled in one of the fine arts Talking like a hick isn't a fine art, nor is it imaginative.
    3 : a skilled performer; especially : artiste Running your pre-molded text into a hillbilly word jumbling app and then posting is far from being a "skilled performance."
    4 : one who is adept at something <con artist> <strikeout artist> See numbers 3.

    -mw dictionary.

    So... yah, no artistry there. Artistry is self-expression for the purpose of entertaining, not outward deception for the purpose of annoying. Big difference. So like, thanks but no thanks. We can definitely do better in picking moderators.

    No.
