It was fun to think about this- it was 10 years ago that all the hubbub over The Large Person Who Shall Not Be Named raised a stink with our esteemed Buzzboard leader. Is he even still around? (H***, I mean, of course MW is still here, thank goodness.)

I'd hazard a guess that if he's not on this board, he has operatives checking it out on a semi-regular basis.

A little birdie (with authority) tells me that he's about to lose his second consecutive book to Greg Big Drew & Jim (3.6 to 2.4) . . . . Eric Zane is similarly in the tank too.

It's a shame, but I certainly support the moderator. This is a labor of love; certainly no revenue, and some sabre-rattling from the outside could easily take away any fun of the role. I continue to accept it as an unfortunate matter.

Karma has a way of working things out all by itself.

What I don't get is, how can somebody who happens to have a name that is also a very common word in the English language hold that word hostage? Let alone for 10 years and counting. Heck, even most statutes of limitation for violations of law expire in less than 10 years.

I'm guessing you can't make the filter case-sensitive? Proper names always begin with a capital letter, so it seems like filtering out only the capitalized name would fulfill the request that his NAME not be used here.

MW I know you gotta do what you gotta do, I just know if I were in your shoes I'd be ticked off if I owned a site that I had to place a prominent sticky in a forum and ban an English-language word for 10+ years. But that's just me.

From where I sit as a long-time reader and only occasional poster, it seems to me MW has a H*** amount of patience: not only with the Large Unnamed One, but with a lot of other bozos who show up here for the fun.

Thanks, MW, for keeping this source of broadcasting news from my old home state up and running! Happy New Year 8)
