Hmmmm, Richard...
When I worked for a TV station a Richard Simmons used the phrase "I am no longer a Vermont virgin."
and he also talked about how he liked playing with Barbie dolls as a child. Go figure.

Anyway since you are new to BBSing, words of advice. "Never trust the sysop."

Certainly the best community, I believe.

Although we don't seem to have as much madness as in times past. I should do more to change that.

What is this "sysop" to whom you are referring? I am a brain in a vat with an Internet connection.

You can tell me that, but I don't trust you.

Sysops are a generous lot, they have disks, copies, and data.  They also have no time for doinks.

Do not meddle in the affairs of sysops, for they are unable to come up with a clever second half of this quotation.

You're a think tank? :-P

Just because there is a brain doesn't mean there is the ability to think.

Yes, but we prefer to be called "policy institutes" now.

I find the required "accident avoidance" driver safety training pretty offensive.
It assumes that I'm an unsafe driver and simply don't know that my driving habits are unsafe and could get me killed. It really doesn't have any provision for someone who doesn't do any of the risky behaviors listed.

And it's identical to the last three or four times I've taken it. If I were an unsafe driver, this would not help.

I would guess, as it has been mostly crickets since.

Generally when LS disappears it is because he is having large amounts of fun in meatspace.
