So, did it work?
Is RJ going to make a guest appearance on this thread to mop cub's fevered brow?
Or hasn't he noticed yet?

I happen to like religion. It gives me what little strength I have left. You? Unprintable. I don't like you, either. Period! We WON the Battle of Yorktown! BTW, RJ is on MY team, NOT yours now! Now I see why!

Yeah, I know, Kyle. "Don't feed the trolls", but Flopsy really IRATES me! She's a snippy Brit who needs to be taken down USA-style!

Why? Because she said what the rest of us are feeling?

Yep, the cat was the culprit. That cat had the screen scrolling so fast I thought at first it was a strobe light when I first entered the nearly dark room.
It's not the first time that cat has landed me in a predicament. I suppose suspicious input by felines is just as apt to trigger the dreaded 403 forbidden access as any other earthly creature. Thanks for your help and I apologize for the kerfuffle.

I never said this. :s

I think I told it to Anton years ago and the quote stuck.

Welcome back, morpheus, and your cat.

Hopefully this thread will become a bit calmer now.

I've never heard of the battle of Yorktown. Or Yorktown for that matter.
Off to google again.
Cubs, do please have a nice cold beer with RJ and relax.

Oh, how deliciously American!
The Americans won the Battle of Yorktown? What about the French? They seem to have been half of the team on your side.
Is that me being a Snippy Brit, or a Pedantic Historian?
Good night, sleep well.

Welcome back, RJ. Is the "cat in the hat" in a cage, when you are on the computer?

Wow, I just read some of the posts. Cat damn near started a war.

Emma, I can only imagine the outcome of trying to put my cat in a cage. I will promise to shut the door if I leave the room in the future.

I just got back from a movie and dinner and see the problem has been resolved.
Thanks for the fix, Terry.

I've once had my cat trying to write a complete quiz, but I haven't submitted that one. After all, there are no dictionaries English - Meow.

The problem's solved. I've since moved on. Thanks for the help, Terry. I'll be signing off shortly.

My cat always played better than I did in the Obscurity game. I should have taken pointers. Oh wait, those are dogs.

Wow, Mom, Wow.

Cubs, is it true the squeaky wheel always gets the grease? And if someone, anyone, disagrees with you on any topic, do you always make certain they know you do NOT LIKE THEM! and they IRRITATE YOU! and are ON YOUR LIST! Do you toss your Cheerios on the floor, too, and then stomp on them until someone responds to your tantrums and cleans up your messes? I'm an Aunt, and that doesn't even work with me when my two-year-old nephew tries it. And he's still cute!

Flopsy is certainly not a "snippy Brit" and who are you to judge? I LIKE Flopsy quite a bit, but I don't LIKE you insulting her. Do you kind of see how this works? It's not all about you, all the time. You just think it is, and for the life of me, I cannot figure out why.

I've seen you flatout threaten people in here for not agreeing with you. I realize the worst you could do is "type them to death," but still, it's rude, crude and socially unacceptable to threaten people, on or offline. I have no clue how or why you continue to get away with it. You baffle me. And I'm certain you do NOT LIKE ME! and oddly, I'm okay with that. What would it say about me if you actually liked me? You're entertaining in an odd sort of way, but my feelings are ambivalent.

I think we all understand your undying love for RJ, and since he's played on just about all our teams in the last year or so, we all know and love him, too. But he has to be the yin to your yang. While you are close to, if not fully hyperventilating, trust me, he's out in the stock tank, smoking a cigar and drinking a beer. Or maybe some Cuervo. I'm all for throwing a bucket of cold water on you, but probably for different reasons. But hey, anything that will get you breathing in AND out again, and maybe cause a wee bit of separation, and ease your separation anxiety.

Ever tried to herd cats? It doesn't work, and mine just love to tap dance across my laptop keyboard just as I load a timed quiz. Luckily, they generally are very fast and extremely accurate, never forgetting to hit submit, so it works out well for me.

I hope everyone can calm down again now that RJ has returned, especially Cubs. Geaux Big Red! Geaux Cowbeaus! Geaux whatever team you are now playing on! Upward and Onward! Let's all have a big, fat, fun year in Trivia! And Kyle? I am being nice, I swear I am! I'm always nice, dang it. Ask anyone.

~Elle
