Typo Creates Bedlam

Our Canadian Prime Minister, Steven Harper, made a presentation in our most northerly city, Iqaluit yesterday. His office issued a press release but they spelled Iqaluit incorrectly. They spelled it Iqualuit.

From the Inuktitut language (Eskimo or Inuit folks), Iqaluit means: many fish

However, the meaning changes to : people with unwiped bums
when the extra 'u' is added.

The entire far north exploded with anger with a bit of tittering too.

I expect that PM Harper would dearly like to be a sock today.
Canadians clearly don't have enough to keep them busy.

We offer our mayor? who just resigned again/again and is now running in the special election to replace him.

It is so bad now that most of his interviews consist of him denying he has mental problems.

I agree we should ban Idoits and those socks that can't spell.

But how do you do that without limits on how many registrations from one IP. You would have to be able to delete one registration before adding another. So it would sound like a lot of work for the techs.

I know you are talking about a particular person of which no one knows who he really is since he can contradick himself almost in the same post. This person only has many socks so he can get by the plonk feature!

Banning Idiots? Who gets to decide that? A idiot! Everyperson on Eplaya has acted like an idiot. Even the author of this thread!

So that would be out of the question.

As the official governor of BRC, it would be nice to ban certain socks not because they may pose certain threads that some people find offensive since what Nazi gets to say what is offensive and what is not, but those socks that one uses one after another repeatively to reinforces their point of view or should I say their intrusive argument. Especially, when they are not engaging in civil dialog.

Like intrusive attacks that DVD did to those threads that Israeli's or Jews started or like Simon does in a multitude of threads he finds stupid- of which might run about 99% of since he's low on dialog and high on snark!

Those are the Gov's opinion!

And this Sock of mine is only used on TOS or questions and answers related to the playa or Eplaya.
