..or rather, I wish I were, but it seems I can't.

Therefor, I am officially making the Plea to Protect Lurker's Rights to Privacy and Invisibility (henceforth known as PPLRPI), and to add a thingamabob to the User Control Panel where you can choose whether or not you want the multitudes to know you dwell among them.

That is all. I shall for now mysteriously vanish and only occasionally return into the glaring spotlight in order to heck up on this thread. It is, after all, not like I am addicted to NS fora and their inhabitants, or anything.


ETA: Goodness gracious, you Forum Overlords have added a "change your vote like a girl changes clothes" option to polls! I'm very much in favor :)

Whilst I'd not use it, I think it's a good idea so I support it. :)

Ouch, does a simple pollywolly like this have to take up more than half of my screen?
(And while we're at is: where's the ^B, ^I, ^U shortcuts?)
(And why can I only choose 7 options?)
(And... and... and... hey, gimme something more to bitch about!!!)

If you hit 'Post Reply' before logging in, it takes you to a log-in page that doesn't work right now but that has a check box allowing you, it seems, to log in and hide your status as well.

So it may be that you can log in and ninja post as well, I think this was only available to Mods on the Jolt boards so that might remain the case here but, if you wish upon a star, your dream may come true.

I like you. Which of your feet may I kiss, and is there any way I can be of service for you?

I wondered that too.

And you can choose only seven options because I said so, and clearly I am the boss.

And.. and.. and I'm too stupid to find a multi-quote option while I distinctly remember I heard someone mention it is there. Bitch about that if you want to.

I shall have to try that. Thanks for the hint!

ETA: Yes, goody. Only, of course, that it will only allow me to go ninja for one session at a time and thus does not cater to my constant ninja predisposition, and, more importantly, that it doesn't work.

So it may be that you can log in and ninja post as well, I think this was only available to Mods on the Jolt boards so that might remain the case here but, if you wish upon a star, your dream may come true.

I definitely and first-handedly know that even regular folks like me could go ninja at Jolt. Not, umm, that I'd go and sink to such practices, but, umm..

Anyhow, nifty feature which is this "Oh look, there's been a new post ever since you slow little typer that you are have decided to answer the thread - care to review your answer while you still can without looking stupid for not having answered the new post?" message.

Good. Now how about being a constructive little Bokkiwokki and telling me how to do it, rather than just sit and bitch?

Also, fancy how quotes within a post we want to quote now show up, too. Hated how they disappeared over at Jolt.

Oh, and, yes, Ifound anotherone: whydoes POSTREPLY seemlike oneword?

'cause the green font has made you semi-blind. Once you've gotten your eyes fixed, you'll realize that "Post" is in regular font and "Reply" is in bold, so it, like, totally stands out.

You appear to labor under the mistaken assumption that my "founding date" equals my birth date, but I'll have you know that I possess and value a substantial degree of life experience and higher edumacation, which you are now expected to acknowledge and respect.

And yes, I'm ever so rebellious in my intellectual elitism that I don't even watch TV, so no more obscure or blatant references to icons of the moving, popularly broadcast pictures in this thread or I shall, umm, release my immense interwebs powahz upon you.

No, it isn't her. Okay, so it says so in several nations' sigs, and right on this post.. but, umm, that's just because someone, I mean I, hijacker her account. Yes. Hijacking. That's it. No, SoWiBi, that is, the poster behind her, did not come back. Not at all. Dismiss all rumors.

And I have no knowledge of no chocolate whatsoever. And even if I hypothetically did, I'm sure it'd have been your fault for letting it lie around in the region.

You're wrong.

On so many levels.

First of all, posts that contain such a skewed smiley/word ratio are just not good.

Secondly, it has to be, if you must stoop to such levels, "Chocolate :D"

You would, of course, because my welfare and enjoyment is your utmost priority, right?

Also, you are Anumia? Why doesn't anybody ever tell me those things? iVote for people, especially AtheistHaveners, to be forced to do this list of all nations controlled in their sig like I have, and like we have established in the old AH forum (RIP).

I still haven't seen Tricksy on here, otherwise I would have pounced her. :P

...and I'm likely to only post here as Kele so you and Tricksy recognise me, and Anumia because that is the one I use more often.

Of course, I'm just as likely to fade out of this forum soon, but it's nice to talk to you again, so I might hang around for a while.

For me personally, I don't care if I'm seen or not. But I do believe the option should be there. On any off site forums I may be on I don't even pay that option no attention, however, I do know that it is there if I feel like I need to use it. But that has never happened. So I say let the option to hide or not be there for those who want it.
