Welcome, welcome!

Welcome to the new board!

But what makes this board new?

It looks the same to me.

It seems like only the plumbing was changed. But that's important too.

But still, it is a new board, technically, so I technically welcome myself and everyone else to it.

Okay, so the founders are really the ones with the right to welcome people to the new board, but then who welcomes the founders? I think I do. Welcome to the new board, founders! ( No, they can't welcome each other! )

I'd like to take this moment to also welcome the disturbing new member "The One Ring" to the new board. You were destroyed and yet you live. You are a ring and yet you are grapes.

Thanks for the welcome, Faramond. :love:

You're right! We need a welcome, too. And I didn't realize quite what was missing until you provided it.

Btw, if the toilet runs, give a holler. :D

Why, thank you for noticing my existence, Faramond.

I've been a member for a long time, but does anyone ever post with me? No. <sigh>

It's very depressing to be a Ring. No arms. No legs. If you fall from a pocket, you roll into a crack in the floor and no one can find you for days and days.

Why am I here, you ask? "If needed," they tell me. But do they ever need me? No.

Today - finally! - I was used to host the lost words of other people. And why did they chose me for this task? Because there were no distracting pictures under my name. Imagine that - being chosen because you are invisible. Is that a compliment?

Then they discovered that lots of posters could not put pictures under their name, so they used me for experiments. First I was a peacock; then I was a little blue box with a red X in it; then I was a jaguar; and now I am grapes. Soon I will be nothing again, for that is the way of things.

It is a cruel, cruel world. Don't let anyone kid you about that one.

This is the first time I've been allowed to speak for myself. How long do you think that will last?

:abducted:

Thanks for the welcome, Faramond! :D

As Spencer Tracy (I think) said: Acting isn't important - plumbing is!

8)

*feels sorry for the One Ring ID*

But I'm relieved to hear the grape-pic will disappear again, because it was Voronwë's pic for so long that to me it would always say: 'Voronwë was here'. :P

(V. - Or not!)

New members don't have to examine the plumbing, ateelah, but you're welcome to if that's what you enjoy! :rofl:

LOL! I was just checking out the threads in the Welcome forum & saw V's post. Being brought up proper I thought the polite thing to do was respond!

:D

Welcome to The One Ring, who seems to have quite a bit of ranting up its sleeve! This makes me like it. I am sure we will get along just fine.

It does sound as though some high and mighty government types - the self-styled "Shirriffs" and the "Marshals" - hmph! - are abusing this poor Ring. I see that we will have to organize a Ring advocacy group to remind these Powers That Be Experimenting that experimenting on unarmed, defenseless rings that are unable to give consent is generally condemned by civilized nations.

I'm thinking that our first demonstration should be a hunger strike.

No Krispy Kremes until the Ring is allowed the privilege of autonomous posting!

Or is that a diet strategy?

And the vultures all start circling
They're whispering, "You're out of time,"
But still I rise
This is no mistake, no accident

Don't be surprised, I will still rise

Just thought I would drop in here and mention that they are USING me again. This is so humiliating. :help:

My life is going in circles.

Oh no .... they're getting ready to log me out again.

There are days when I just wish that someone would carry me to Mount Doom and drop me in. Have you ever felt like that?

I need a lawyer.

Do you know what these ... these ... yrch! PTB did to me over the weekend?

They banned me!

Did they have probable cause? No.

Did they have a warrant for my arrest? No.

Did they have a writ of habeas corpus? No.

They did not even PRETEND to have those things. It was an experiment AGAIN!

“We have ad bots,” they said, “And we have a porn spammer.”

Do you see any porn around here? Any spam? Any ads?

Neither do I.

“That’s because we experimented on YOU,” they said, “and figured out that banning is too kind a fate for ad bots and porn spammers. They have to be DELETED and DISALLOWED, and if you don’t sit quietly while we experiment on you, you too will be Deleted and Disallowed.”

Excuuuuuuse me, but experiments are supposed to be performed on mice.

Here is a picture of a mouse.

Here is a picture of me.

Should I be subjected to these merciless experiments? There’s a civil suit in all of this, or I’ll eat my claim to being the most fiendish artifact of Sauron.
