There's no rule against ragging on Winston but at least make it a topic or post with legitimate content rather than a collection of spam porn images and nonsense one liners.

Did I *ever* say falcon should be "banned"? Nope. In fact, I advocate just the *opposite*. I support falcon being made a moderator, and I am not joking when I say that. I have my reasons, though.

The concept of newfagism is not defined by me, personally. You see, there are these things society uses to define numeral value. As some here may or may not know, these things are called "numbers". I know, fascinating concept, but we can discuss that later.

Now, here is what the average person can do to spot the newfag. Look to the lower left, and you will see this: Joined: 09 Mar 2008. See those "number" thingies? Those tell you something important, but only if you are *not* a newfag. Newfags find it impossible to comprehend non-newfagism.

Overall, the two prime factors of newfag-ology are 1.) Joined: ???? > 2010, and an immediate post where the newfag expresses supreme knowledge of foreign culture but has in all likelihood never left moms basement.

Given the trend here over the past year or so, newfags-ism has become predominant. Therefore, I support banning anyone that has joined before 2011, and then promotion of all remaining newfags to moderator status. This forum must cater to its core audience, and take its place as a haven for newfag-osity.

I hope this clarifies my position.

You're not making sense again. Why is a new member automatically a "newfag"? On what basis?

And why don't YOU post pics of YOUR wife?

Most people here do not like posting their pics on here. That doesn't discredit them. We should take everything with a grain of salt, but not wanting to post pics is not a reason to call them a "newfag".

You are saying things without a valid reason.

If you think Falcon is a "newfag" then why do you want him to be a moderator? That doesn't add up.

+1 too :D

This isn't even sarcasm gone overboard. Rather, someone forgot to take his daily medication.

Many people in http://www.happierabroad.com/FanMail.htm said many valuable things, but are still not part of this forum yet. But let's all assume they're liars, because we can't trust (almost) anyone on the Internet, especially those who haven't joined this forum many years ago! Similarly, fschmidt, phoenix sosa, AmericanInMexico, OTB, and many others have reported varying degrees of success with Mexican women without posting any pictures or videos.

This is called the "appeal to ignorance" fallacy. http://www.fallacyfiles.org/ignorant.html Then there's the "guilt by association" fallacy. http://www.fallacyfiles.org/guiltbya.html

There is also a very helpful 101 tutorial on social and conversational skills for a few of our fellow members: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cooperative_principle
Human conversations can exist because there's a certain level of trust, so most of what is said by the parties involved is truthful.

I shall stop arguing against Grunt and the reincarnation of swincor, because trolls thrive on responses, whether logical or illogical. I'll relax, move on, and do something productive.

By doing something productive, you mean escaping your moms basement, or spinning more fantastic tales of imaginary adventure?
