Chemist is not currently blocked. He's just not posting. I believe he is hibernating. Perhaps we'll see him poke his nose up in the spring. Hide the salmon.

hello there, bane of your collective existence here...i was unaware that parole had, once again, been granted...

and what greater honor than to be the subject of a thread on the meds board with the very civil topic line ``Re: What Did He Do This Time?''

i recall a doonesbury comic from long ago - and i am not certain the origin of the following, yet from the funnies i did glean it - when one character stated to another that ``the only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about.''

all the best, chemist

Hey you loon. Lovely to see you here. I had apparently lost track of your many transgressions. Do you think you could manage to stay unblocked for, let's say...a week? Shall we start wagering in a Chemist's Next Block Pool? ;-)

I ain't your auntie tofu, but I missed you fotu.

I think blocks should be given *with an expiry date*. Just saying eight weeks (or whatever) is different than saying "until 8 p.m. March 21".

The date of my post + the duration = the expiry date?

I think a more explicit date is going to be easier to remember, both for the blocked, and for the friends of the blocked. Yes, it's easy math, but explicit would be cool.

... yes, I saw him permitting his funny bone on meds too, where the sentence someone had used that he wanted to correct had begun with "Can you say, (X)??" and Dr. Bob said, "Can you say, please don't say things that could lead others to feel (etc.)?"

I got a smile out of that too.

Hmmm, would that be not often that you laugh?

Or, not often that Dr. Bob's comments make you (or anyone) laugh? ;-)

(Just playing around, Dr. B ;-))

can we use the "some of us are over-medicated, thus logically challenged" excuse for the explicit date request, Dr. Cool?!?

Or, for myself, the "customarily confused and befuddled" excuse is usually more accurate!!

(Folks, I am attempting humor directed at myself and my reaction to Dr. Bob's joke... NOT an attempt to speak for anyone else, nor to imply that meds fry your brains, okay?????)

It is sometimes difficult to be confused, befuddled, humorous, AND politically correct, but ya gotta give me credit for TRYING...(maybe I just succeed at the confused and befuddled part?)

 

It would be nice for the mathematically challenged

Question, sir.

How do you keep track of blocks? Would it not be by date, not duration? Could you just let us know what's in your Big Book of Blocks?

To block someone, I enter the number of weeks and the server keeps track. Perl uses non-leap seconds since 00:00:00 UTC, January 1, 1970. :-)
