Memorize it, Faramonster. You'll use it a lot. :sunny:

Open your eyes
Look into the thread and see
I'm just a poster, I need no sympathy
Because I'm easy spam, easy post
A typo here, typo there
Anyway the fire burns, doesnt really matter to me,
To me

Sherriff, just flamed a noob,
Put ALL CAPS against his head,
hit the send key, now he's fled,
Sherriff, chat had just begun,
But now I've gone and thrown it all away
Sherriff oooooooh,
Didn't mean to make you edit
If I'm not back again this time tomorrow
Carry on, carry on, as if Tolkien really matters

Too late, my board has come,
Sends shivers down my spine
Mind racing all the time,
Goodbye fellow posters- I've got to go
Gotta leave this hall behind and face the truth
Sherriff ooooooooh (any way the fire burns)
I don't want to edit,
I sometimes wish I'd never registered at all

I see a little silhouetto of a thain,
COME-HERE-FIRST, COME-HERE-FIRST, and then give the potholder
Economist and Lawyer - very very frightening me
Grab-a-Louie, grab-a-Louie
grab-a-Louie, grab-a-Louie
Grab-a-Louie-fiskaro-magnifico
But I'm a dumb poster and nobody replies to me
He's just a poster - without a net family
Spare him him his life from this monstrosity
Easy spam easy post, will you let me post
Jnyusa! no, we will not let you post-let him post
Jnyusa! we will not let you post-let him post
Jnyusa! we will not let you post-let me post
Will not let you post-let me post
Will not let you post let me post
No, no, no, no, no, no, no
:llama: mia, :llama: mia, :llama: mia let me post
Whistler has a green fairy put aside for me, for me, for me

So you think you can tell me that my post is wrong
So you think you can make it all up with a funny song
Voronwë - can't do this to me Voronwë
Just gotta get out-just gotta get right outta here

Tolkien really matters,
Anyone can see,
Tolkien really matters, Tolkien really matters to me,

Any way the fire burns ....

I for one have had it up to here with primness.

It's a beautiful day. Let's party.

So I know what IAWP means, but how did it begin?

Well, some time ago, a man and a woman loved each other VERY much, and then they had a little girl whom they did NOT name Prim, even if that WAS really her name. :D

Why does Halofiria sound like a country that would have been in a Marx Bros. movie?

I think it had something to do with people agreeing with Prim a lot. :P

Cool! We've got our own Marx Brothers country!

I cannot tell a lie; it was I who first came up with it, but I was just trying to save Anthy from having to type out "I agree with Prim" over and over.

IAWV :agree:

Although I think I did eventually imply that a suitable abbreviation would be good, since my darned fingers were falling off.

Thank you, Fara. I too had no idea, though I suspect careful study would have revealed the answer.

I missed its origin also. I seem to recall in my short tenure here that it has been used for other prior posters simply by changing the "P" to the appropriate initial.

Clearly, the "P" would be the most common icon of agreement.

This, of course, has nothing to do with the fact that I'm big and strong and carry a thirty-four-pound salmon everywhere I go.

Only if you perform sacrificial rites in front of the P altar prior to the substitution.

I've spend some time worshiping at the P altar after a few parties...oh, wait, that's not what you meant, is it... :oops:

Ax, :roll: Where's Prim when you need her? In any case, IAWP calls for the following:

Sorry, Nel, I was out swanning around when I should have been taking care of business.

<peers down at remains>

Excellent work. Thank you.
