    I’ve got to keep posting because I need to get from occasional commentator to a star or even a lead commentator
    *bows down in deference ...*
    Then I’ll get a John Lewis token right ?
    And because I like the interlectul conver... conversay...shun.
    And no f..ing and blinding well not the c word that I find very offensive in other forums.

    I have always found this to be a very stupid reply by Mallory.

    I have noticed such admonishments have been less common recently, I conclude that your sterling efforts have been successful*.

    * or you changed the criteria to make the data fit.

    Not “Christmas” although judging by the tv adverts it’s next week @Flere-Imsaho .

    It's also not as funny as:

    "Why do you rob banks?"
    "Because that's where the money is"

    Falsely attributed to a certain Mr Sutton, it would seem. You learn something new every day:

    I’m not ready for star commenter tbh Sir Shadrack. I still haven’t worked out how to leave a smart **** quote at the bottom on the post for a start.

    Are you asking this question of the polymath, comedian, persona of my dad, harassed Jack Russell owner, compassionate individual or person who refuses to tick boxes in order to satisfy my line management, that are all the things, and probably many other things I am?

    You have to be awarded the privilege of having a smart **** comment - or signature - at the bottom of your posts. By the mods. Oh, yes. It has to be conferred upon you at a time of their choosing.

    Rumour has it ("that he's the man I'm leaving you for"), that there's an elite group of posters who got to pick who could have a signature. Yep. Believe it or not...

    What is this mysterious signature entity of which you speak? Who has one?

    These are deep waters Watson. I think it best you bring your revolver.

    Ahhhh I see @Dunteachin . It’s nothing to do with the robots looking at threads ? Sorry I’ve got to concentrate on England and trying to levitate the ball into the back of the net for them. Doesn’t look like it’s going to happen otherwise :eek:

    This old chestnut gain.
    If @silkywave is interested in such trivial things you can soon see if you have one yet by checking the dropdown menu you get when hovering over your user name top right of every page.

    I see. The game is afoot. I have not this hallowed signature. And to boot, my "Show people's signatures with their messages" option was turned off. So, I've now turned it on, and can now waste a large chunk of time trying to find posters with signatures.

    All this on a Friday evening. How did it get to this?

    I have been enlightened thanks to silkywave's question. It was one of those Rumsfelds wasn't it?

    I've now overdosed on signatures. Time to retire for the day.

    I have worked tirelessly towards this end, and my efforts have been richly rewarded, praise the old gods and the new.

    Are you accusing me of SLT style statistics-fudging? How very dare you! A pox upon your household!

    I have the signature option set to "off": so much clutter on the page, otherwise.
    (I declined to take up the offer: thanks, but no thanks.)

    I post through habit and the Hotel California effect: you can check out but you can never leave.

    In fact I am amazed that some posters appear to be able to do that: just leave, and not return. Such iron discipline...
