interesting question, good fellow... I don't know if I should be in that decision-making process, as I'm not an Administrator... And it would be a bit self-serving ;)

So, Mr. Moderator, will the powers that be make another title once a sufficient number of people start getting towards 4,000? Maybe emperor/empress?  ;D
Maybe, we should title this category "I really need to get a life".  :D

Is this simply a case of sour grapes, "Mr. 180 Posts"? :D
No, "Mr 3,175 posts", it is not a case of sour grapes!  Unlike you other people on this board, I have a life.
Speaking of which, I have to get ready to go over a friend's house for dinner who is celebrating Christmas today on the Old Calendar.
It's times like this (having celebrated Theophany yesterday and the Sobor of St John the Baptist today and now heading for an Old Calendar Christmas celebration) that reminds me of the Aposticha from Vespers on Palm Sunday evening, "Come, O faithful, let us quickly pass from one holy feast to another..."  ;)

Yah....since GiC is the most "normal" parishioner on OC.net.....like ever... ;) ;)
Hey, the overwhelming majority of our faithful never go to Church...so it would be reasonable to assume that in order to be a 'normal' parishioner, you couldn't really go to Church except for weddings and baptisms. ;)

Yah and they can memorize entire church texts, quote verbatum all of the canons of the church, argue semantics like nobody's business and create entirely new philosophies just to irritate people off in random conversation...

Sounds normal to me!!!   ;) :p

Serbski---

We've discussed this before. Watch the language!

After being reprimanded, I think i'm going to switch to the most classy language I can find.  Time to bust out the Thesaurus.  I'm sure GiC will be proud of me... ;)

As for your "sure they can" comment...

The moderators that be won't allow me to follow that one up with my usual witty remarks.  ;)

Oh, I think the more colourful adjectives are perfectly capable of spicing up a conversation...especially if used tastefully in the most scandalous of ways...it wasn't I who objected to your word choice.

To quote Mae West, 'Those who are easily shocked should be shocked more often.' ;D ;)

Well, it's work...something I generally try to avoid at all costs. That was one good thing about HCHC, if perhaps one of the very few, it allowed me to realize those attempts ;)
