Thanks

Since there is an odd problem...........moderators will now be staff members, senior staff members............and I am just labeled an administrator. Not that its important but ww2admin and I hold the rank of major general. But we cant display it............oh sad times are these. LOL anyhow im sure everyone knows the staff and their rank. bla bla bla

Congrats to Chevan. We will have a new 1st lieutenant in the british section soon................not saying who it is but you can probably guess.

Its nice to see ppl achieve these ranks by posting and posting good material.

Oh Nick.You keep in mind our posts.
I did not even guess you still have posts-race with me:)
Just do not forget - the quantity is not always means quality.The posts are very different.
If you simply post the news-threars using the copy/past method is not the same that to dig the sources in aim to search the material.
For instance the post of our friend George are always very informative with a great links of sources.But he have twice less of posts here.Does it mean we twice better members than he, sure not.This mean that he has not been involved in many senseless debates like you or me:)
Besides you need more time for you rmod's work. So do not hurry buddy. Do it good , not fast.:)

Well, I've seen plenty of interesting material from you "debater" types :)
I think that reasonable debate helps keep the forum lively and often provides the spark that motivates members to research topics more thoroughly.

I do read a lot of the threads here, even though I don't always chip in. Much of that has to do with the amount of free time that I have available. I have to budget it towards certain topics that I'm more familiar with and supplement it with what I can glean off of the internet and any personal resources that I have available.

There are times I won't weigh in on certain debates, as it would expend a lot of my time and energy with little result in changing the other party's mind or opinions. In such cases, I am content to just observe and learn.

So, keep up the good work guys ;)

LOL I just kidding around, I'm not in a competition with anyone. But I think you'll recall that I took a long hiatus from the site many months ago. Prior to that we had been roughly parallel in the numbers of posts.

Well, what's useless about debate? I've learned quite a bit that way, and have had to research to defend my arguments. The truth is though, I don't have as much time to post with the spam attacks lately.:(..

Worry no more, you are now free to post wathever you like, the jews are evil, the poles are evil, the ukranians are the worst, etc.

Apparently you think that your departure means that the other mods will allow such undesirable material, as they lack your high moral standards and great modding skills.

You're being arrogant and insulting to the other mods in assuming that your resignation means the end of civilisation as known since toothpaste was put in tubes.

You might note that Chevan put a smiley after his comment you quoted. In the context of his post, he was being humorous or ironic, two things you never understood, and still don't, because you tend to look for offence and find it too easily.

Holy mother... :shock: talking about trolling, just see who arrives.

It seems that the retirement house has broadband again.

Just for once you have say the truth, of course I dont like the actual situation, and obviously that I am not very pleased with the majority of the moderators, and you provide a perfect example:

You have two account Rising Sun and this Registra.etc, now , why this allowed when is clearly against the rules ? No idea, nobody has explain me that.

I am not arrogant, I am self confident which is not the same, is a "cultural question" like a british Mod told me. :rolleyes:

I accept your administrator's rebuke, but I think that encouraging PK to PM me is a cruel and unusual punishment. :D I can't think of anything I've ever done to deserve that. ;)

Also, Big congrats to Chevan. Well deserved, mate. :mrgreen:

The reason I posted initially was that I thought that PK was being churlish in Chevan's congrats thread by raising issues about Chevan's past conduct in a harsh and sarcastic fashion when Chevan had raised them in a self-deprecating and ironic fashion, in a good natured spirit which was absent from PK's response.

The seriousness with which I view this issue can gauged from the fact that I am actually springing to Chevan's defence, instead of maintaining my usual position that the Soviets didn't do much after coming into the war late and just muddling around in eastern Europe, to counter Chevan's usual position that the Soviets would have won the war earlier if the other Allies hadn't interfered by drawing German forces away from the USSR where the Soviets would have killed them all by the end of 1943. :D

I'm grateful for those congratulations, and for all GS has done to bring me back from the deep dark pit of cyber death, but I'd just like it noted that, as GS carefully said, it's the British Ranking system.

Aussies ain't Brits.

Just British, and Irish and Scots and Welsh, mongrel descendants. :D

Us hound dogs in the US are proud of our non-British distinction as well. I dont know what pisses them off more.....the fact we beat them or the fact the French Navy helped seal the deal. Whatever im sure we have better teeth because of it. LOL :D

Anyhow the UK has long been our partner in crime for awhile so I wont be to harsh on them. I did find if fascinating that Prince Harry was in Afghanistan. Im sure there are 1-5 members of congress that have sons in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Thanks to the UK and their bungled military operations we have our own country. Nifty thou that they messed up the war against the US but later kicked the crap out of Napoleon. Well done there if I might say so. Always seemed to me UK = US and US = Vietnam. I guess what comes around goes around.

Congrats again RS!

Coz now you congratulate the Rising Sun here:)

Well, PK has become outrageously insubordinate in his feedback thread and has put forward treasonable ideas about revolution, which are mutinous at the least, so maybe we should court martial him and bust him back to the ranks so we can boss him around. (I'm not prejudging the outcome of the trial here, just giving effect to the best principles of military justice as expressed by so many CO's: 'March the guilty bastard in, sar major, and let's give him a fair hearing before we impose the penalty.'. ;) Do you want to be PK's prosecutor or defence counsel? :D

If things have gone accordig to plan, that academic snob has gone to cyber heaven. We had to get rid of him, because he was upsetting PK too much.

Nah, leave it in here.

PK mightn't realise I'm in here.

He has enough of a problem with you, without adding me in. If he finds people congratulating both of us, there's bound to be more complaints about inept modding and 'Beware the revolution' and 'No more Mr Nice Guy' and so on.

He's about to pop an artery, so it'd be best not to do anything that might help that along. I don't think he realises how much we care about him.

If visitors think Chevan is great, so what? The rest of us know what you're really like. ;)

Wasn't just the French navy. Them joining in meant we were in a full-on war with France - which given it's about 20 miles from the UK and a hell of a lot more powerful than the US at that point in time understandably took all of our attention. The US just got left on the back burner and won out accordingly.
