Hanford,

I've got an idea. Just like a couple of other things I could think of, a majority of people enjoy the playfully sadistic antics of a good flame wars thread, but won't admit it.

How about in honor of our Nation's revolutionary fight for freedom, you let us have 1 day - July 4th - to go at a no-holds barred flame war about any topic - including banned topics.

Just like a couple of other things I could think of, it gets it out of our system so we can funtion in a proper manner for the other 364 days of the year (but without growing hair on your palms).

It fits right in with our paganistic, hedonistic tiki nature. We celebrate the forbidden!

What do you all think?

For even suggesting such a thing you should be cut in half... vertically.

I'll bet you play the steel like some George Jones cast-off...

...and your drinks taste like Raid...

You're a demopublicanbaptatheist aintcha?

Hey, you're right - it IS fun - like fireworks without the sulpher smell.

I'm in!

I like the idea. As long as it's well known that July 4th is flame day so no one wanders into a middle of a firestorm by accident.

Maybe just one thread - the endless flame thread. SO that way you can tell by the title what yer in for.

Hey Tikifish our beloved moderator said it's a 'Go'!

Only 107 more days until "The Great Flame War Meltdown 2004"

(Tikifish, why do you all up North mispell "favorite" and "color")

((did I just mispell the word mispell?))

Maybe we can open a one day flame forum. So there can be lots of topics.

And then at midnight, it would disappear forever, and generations will come to think of it as a myth. Old tikinuts will tell their grandkids about it to scare them straight and keep them off drugs.

"C'mon, Grandpa Bong! There was no such thing as a flame forum. We read Tiki Central in class everyday since President Lemoore made it a requirement and we've never seen it!"


That's two moderators in favor. (Favour) But you must be good until then, or no candy!

Not so fast - Hanford hasn't given it the go ahead! But I for one think it would be funny.
Like I said, as long as no sensitive soul wanders in by accident...

PS. Bong, the 'u's are just a holdover from our evil british overlords.

He didn't say, "No."

As a husband, I think that qualifies as permission!

You guys went about this all in the wrong way. What you's should have done was get together off line and get each member to send him a case of Anchor Steam. Maybe he would have considered something while consuming 41,736 beers.

Hanford,

I think you misdirected them. They should use
THIS service instead.

Hopefully everyone knows my position on this: 365 days a year debates and arguments are allowed on Tiki Central. But personal attacks are not. This is a place where you're free to disagree, but I do not encourage, nor do I see the fun in, giving everyone a free "personal attack" day to tear your fellow Tiki Central bretheren apart without consequences.

~Hanford
