I think it's funny how you guys shut-down any thread that even remotely threatens your superiority. I think it's funny that Wooz said he was locking the original thread because it was in the wrong place, when he easily could've moved it. I also think it's funny how, eventhough that thread has been locked, roofanintn still had to open it back up just long enough to thumb his nose at me. Mature, man. Real mature. And, FYI, a cod DOES NOT constitute a tribe, my friend.
Anyway. Since I was right in the middle of a rebuttal, I'm going to continue what I was saying and to defend myself against some of the obviously misdirected arguments:
Well, I can't imagine how people can be content to be managed by cods who are so rarely around that they aren't familiar with a good deal of the members that make-up the daily hustle and bustle of today's Inforoo. As far as the argument that no one should judge the actions of another until meeting said person face-to-face goes, couldn't the same reasoning be used to argue that you shouldn't judge posters until you've actually spent time with them online? How can you get an accurate picture or feeling for who a person is and how to address them, in good times and bad, if you haven't been around enough to actually get to know them and understand what's going on? Look, people. I'm not calling for a completely new roster or anything. I didn't even vote for "Replace Them All", if you'll notice. I'm not calling for something as shockingly democratic (gasp!) as a board-wide vote. And I'm clearly not trying to become the newest manager a Starbucks (but that sure was clever, Jess). I'm saying that, well-intentioned or not, for whatever reason, some of the cods don't spent much time here. In my opinion, some of the cods don't spend enough time here. (Yeah. I know, my opinion means nothing here. Community, right?) What I am pretty obviously saying is that, if all of the cods actually believe that they are doing their jobs as effectively as they can, THE CODS should at least consider adding someone new to the line-up. Someone who is excited enough and active enough to really handle the day-to-day banter and bs that make-up the true body of this board. Someone to report back to the existing hierarchy and help them make more informed desicions. Sure. You guys certainly have the power to ignore my views and shoot-down my idea, and I fully expect that you will do just that, but I implore you not to shelf ideas and constructive criticism simply because you have a problem with the person who offers them. Or, even worse, please don't ignore ideas out of entitled arrogance. This board and it's people deserve better than that.
