I appreciate that this may initially come over as a bit daft, but I'm pretty serious about this one. As far as I'm concerned, the fact that Inky hasn't yet been given mod status is a serious oversight. So I'm opening the polls: Should Inky become a moderator?

When making your decision, please bear in mind that he's been here for a long time and he's always been welcoming and friendly to all-comers, has been very generous with his music collection and has always been a beacon of rationality and good humour. A better mod there is not, and I'm including myself in that.

If, by the end of November, there's a majority yes decision, then I'll personally lobby Mata for this to happen. And by that I mean I'll badger the poor bloke incessantly until he caves in biggrin.gif

Please cast your vote now. And if you have any comments to support your vote (good or bad) then please post them.

But if InKy becomes a mod he'll go away again. sad.gif

It happens to all mods, you know. They vanish! I'm still not convinced that you're not a clone and Mata doesn't have the real Leo gagged in his basement. ph34r.gif

(I actually voted yes. And Whitney is still cheap like crack!)

Yes to both (not given much choice on the second..)! In my head, Inky and Leo are pretty much the same person anyways. tongue.gif

Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust. You couldnít be here if stars hadnít exploded, because the elements - the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution and for life - werenít created at the beginning of time. They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars, and the only way for them to get into your body is if those stars were kind enough to explode. So, forget God. The stars died so that you could be here today. ~Lawrence Krauss

InKy and Leo are like Two Face, or Dr Jeklylkyl and Mr Hyde.

It's interesting to see that so far in the voting, Whitney Houston is generally considered to be cheap like crack. I'll be keeping a close eye on this poll.

I do see one flaw in this in that he'd be able to ajust his warn level and you wont be able to make rude comments about him in the mod forum (which doesn't exsist *nods*)

Can you adjust your own warn level? I didn't think that was possible.

And as for making rude comments, I'm quite happy to carry on doing that in the main forum. Which, as you say, is the whole thing because there's no mod only area. Oh no. Not at all. unsure.gif

Do we make mod-panties in larger-than-life size? Man's a legend in his own right, you know. If so then I suppose I'll vote yes.

Oh, and Whitney Houston will forever be cheap like crack. Though I hear inflation's damaged the metaphor some since its inception.

I assure you, Cand, I'm not a clone. I'm not entirely sure how I can make such an assurance, but you have my word as the genuine article. Which I am. I wish I had a clone, though, I'd get more free time.

Right, Mata, I've dispelled that myth. Now can you loosen those leg bindings please? I'm a bit concerned about them, they're turning black...

I have to say, I'm very touched. I don't know quite what motivated leo to do this, and what made any of you think it was a good idea (18 and counting - what, are you mental?), but I am deeply honoured to be thought of in such a way. I love you all, damnit!

However...

It has a lot to do with the very first mod decision process waaaaaay back when we were all a lot younger. I seem to recall that you were the main contender, but you bowed out and pushed support for me instead. So I'm returning the favour. Very late in the day, granted, but I'm feeling pretty philanthropic.

However, I've got to say that 18 votes is a bit of a poor show. Surely we can drum up more support than this??

Vote now! And don't vote "No" as per my sig, that's for another, entirely different cause which would just crush Manchester's economy. Vote YES!

Call me when they get green fur on them, then we'll talk.

Yes, now you mention it, I think InKy might have been up for mod-ship a long time ago; however, there was a fair period of time where he wasn't around much/at all, so it could be that if I made him a mod he wouldn't disappear.

I agree with this. InKy is responsible, intelligent, fair handed, and level-headed.
But under this new regime, you all know we'll be forced to grow little beards and listen to ABBA, right? No ABBA means room 101..(i think i got that right. i tried!)

Quite. And syuu has the most charming handlebar tuft you ever did see.

It's not the tickling I mind so much as the scratching when she hasn't shaved for a few days. Either grow it or lose it, luvvy - the designer stubble look is so 80s...

I'm still trying to work out what's wrong with being hirsute and having a penchant for ABBA. I'm personally sporting a very fetching few days worth of facial topiary, and I'm boogie-ing along to "Voulez Vous".

I tell you, it was very, very difficult to resist being crude after that one. I feel that I kept my response nice, clean and above-the-waist for once, thankyouverymuch. wink.gif

Quite right though, otherwise - nothing wrong with a bit of ABBA love. I do find it hard to square my ownership of a Girls Aloud best-of with myself, though. I don't even fancy them that much, for crying out loud. I just... *sob*... like the songs...

There there, Inky. I understand how you feel. But surely Cheryl Cole is a bit fanciable? Yeah, her husband's a bit of a knob, but you won't be doing anything with him, I assume. And what about Sarah Harding? I used to work with her cousin. She was fit as well. In fact, I'm seeing her this weekend.

I'm certainly not implying that they're not attractive per se - Cheryl's far from ugly, Sarah's got the tall'n'blonde thing working nicely, and I am even of the unpopular opinion that Nicola is a bit of a fox (I'm a sucker for the pale redheads). It's just that I wish that was the reason that I owned any of their recordings, rather than the fact that I find 'Sound Of The Underground' very catchy, 'Biology' infectiously upbeat, and 'Love Machine' the best pop song not to come out of Scandinavia. It's just shameful, really.

Plus I've caught myself eyeing up the upcoming Christina Aguilera best-of. I think I need to shut myself in a darkened room with some Sunn O))) until I've got all this deviant 'pop' nonsense out of my system...

Inky, what you're suffering from here is a classic case of music taste ambivalence: You like the music, but you don't want to incur the wrath of the music literati. I can completely understand this. You're still young enough to have certain tastes in recorded music and appear all edgy and cool without anyone going "Ah, but you've only heard of them because you've got a 15 year old daughter." Which in my case, whilst correct on the offspring front, is factually wrong as she listens to some right dross.

Anyway, I can put your mind at ease. The music literati, the ones who say what's cool and what's not, are basically a bunch of tossers who have nothing better to do than decry any act that is even reasonably successful to be a corporate whore. You don't want to be associated with them. REAL appreciation of music means to take any form, be it Urusei Yatsura, Girls Aloud or even Cliff Richards, and appreciate it for it's good qualities. For example, Barry Manilow isn't cool, but I defy anyone not to be tapping toes to "Copacabana".

You, sir, are more cool than the literati purely because you CAN admit you like differing musical styles and appreciate them for what they are. Don't be ashamed of it. Embrace it warmly, knowing it makes you a better person to not dismiss it out of hand just because it's considered uncool to like Girls Aloud.

And if it's any consolation at all (and I'm sure it won't be), I like "Something Kinda Ooh". I always find myself breaking speed limits when that comes on the radio.

But I have to draw the line at Nicola. Sorry, but she's neither that pale nor that redheaded. Her eyes are too far apart as well. That said, she's the only one of the quintet that can actually sing, so it's not all bad.
