    Congrats to the both of yas! Poor bastids....
    Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

    Abusing Yellow is meant to be a labor of love, not something you sell to the highest bidder.

    As Oscar Wilde may have said: To gain one mod may be regarded as a misfortune; to gain two looks like carelessness.


    Congratulations to both. I am assured that the WAB is in safe hands.

    My sincere condolen - I mean, heartiest congratulations to Pari and Minskaya. Please be assured that we will continue to try our very best to annoy the hell out of you

    Is this where I point and laugh ?

    After careful consideration and heartfelt reflecting of what has transpired, I feel I have to file a formal complaint to the powers that be.

    I feel that the choice of these two as moderators are, at best, a lateral move.

    I have every confidence that Minskaya will make an excellent mod and the thought of her taking Julie's place and wearing leather bras and swinging a whip behind the boookcase does have some appeal, the thought of Pari taking the Colonel's place and raiding those bras are, at best, cringe worthy.

    Oh, and Pari might mess with my avatar.

    Ah hell.....

    Congrats to both Minskaya and Pari!

    p.s: (so when did Pari stop being a mod before this? I always thought he was still a mod.. )

    Pari is ephemeral. Now you see him...

    Ephemeral hell! He's throwing up in the toilet. Can't handle the lowlands.

    A stunning development. My kind of mods. Kill first and sort matters later (if so inclined). I counsel "no remorse...".
