Whip

Post by CmdrWilkens » 2009-05-18 08:01pm

So anyway this post is currently unfilled and I think the episode of last month's vote being held up due to issues with my computer (as well as the fact that life can interfere from time to time with board activity) that there is, at least in my mind, value in getting someone installed in the Whip position.

So that being said I'm going to open this thread up to nominate and discuss potential members for the post.

I suggest Coyote. He already does a good job of running the HoC. In case anyone is entertaining the bright idea to nominate me, I'll torpedo that right out of the gate. I'm not available for that job.

I second Coyote.

Cool, I get Coyote has support so the question becomes is there anyone else or are we in a sorta-unanimous position? Also has anyone asked Coyote if he wants to add Whip to his Mod duties?

I dunno, I heard that Coyote guy is kind of a bum! :mrgreen:

Hey, I'll do it. Thanks for the vote of confidence, all.


MMmm... whips. Whipped cream. Yeah, I can get into this.
Something about Libertarianism always bothered me. Then one day, I realized what it was:
Libertarian philosophy can be boiled down to the phrase, "Work Will Make You Free."


In Libertarianism, there is no Government, so the Bosses are free to exploit the Workers.
In Communism, there is no Government, so the Workers are free to exploit the Bosses.
So in Libertarianism, man exploits man, but in Communism, its the other way around!

I will declare my support of Coyote provided his job consistently only of whipping CmdrWilkens to work faster. Say CmdrWilkens have you considered trading a kidney for a spare computer? I know your at the age where that kidney's not going to get you fan-frigging tastic top of the line computer, but even after a lifetime of drink, drugs and debauchery, it should at least be able to swing you an E-machine able to log onto the internet right?

Oh and just to add some fairness/competition to this, I nominate Marina.

1. She's organized enough to make a decenr whip
2. Marina and whips, just seem to belong togetther....

OKay Coyote has been motioned and seconed, Marina has been motioned but NOT seconded and I'm going to give this thread until tomorrow when the vote for member elevation goes up to conclude its business.
