I have rather enjoyed it myself the previous times. Hence my pending application to the usergroup FF00BF BFFs (that has been repurposed for additional Mod Madnes punchingbags).


Good idea; I shall apply to join that group now.

Being in the magenta club was very fun last Madness.

I applied when I first posted in this thread, I was sad last year since I didn't realize it had been cleared out after the 2014 madness, and so I missed out the FF00BFF fun in 2015! THE HORROR! I was in it before it was cool :P

Nah, Rule #12 is "Never argue with a Moderator in the same thread or elsewhere in public after they just made a decision about the stupid-ass shit you just pulled and chewed you out publicly for it. If you wanna argue, do it in Private Messages but also be aware that Mods dump their moderation-related PMs in the Mod Forum so the other mods are in the loop as well, which is why mod shopping goes so, so well."

But that's weirdly worded and it's got some cursing in it.

The alcohol has arrived and consumption has begun.
We're in the traffic-chopper over the XKCD boards where there's been a thread-derailment. A Liquified Godwin spill has evacuated threads in a fourty-post radius of the accident, Lolcats and TVTropes have broken free of their containers. It is believed that the Point has perished.

It's just after 2pm here. I doubt any active mods are drunk yet, unless the UK contingent has noticed.
Unless stated otherwise, I do not care whether a statement, by itself, constitutes a persuasive political argument. I care whether it's true.

Correct.

Note that neither "mod" nor "madness" is subject to a filter. Yet.

Mod Madness is great but it's always disappointing because I never make needle-pulled things that get popular so they can be explicitly chosen to have a word filter based around them.

Question: is it our forumal duty to report posts that "evade" the word replacements in obvious non-fun ways, like putting dots between the letters? (Or does that backfire horribly since the report system is for serious serious offences?)
