Don't. Just as you are one of the most eloquent posters on PA (and my personal favorite from that board), Averagjoe is the king of HURL. I don't think anyone here would disagree.

What has happened to him has happened due to some humorless person who has decided to infect the board with his or her bitterness. We have all come to agree to some unwritten rules about tolerances on HURL, except for the aforementioned person. TMF unofficially agrees to look the other way if no one FA's a post. Some really hairy posts are still listed on this board after having been posted years ago.

But when someone FA's a post, TMF must act. AJ's gripe isn't so much with TMF as it is with the humorless poster. If you're not a HURL regular, you may not understand.

Just as there is a tolerance envelope on PA, there is a different one here on HURL. The regulars know how to push it; AJ occasionally breaks it because he is ALWAYS pushing it.

So, please do not read a "Best Of" post and come in here cold offering advice. I have long since given up doing that on PA.

Love you, man. Your signature "Bush is..." absolutely slays me.
