Many of us never use the different font colors, or the emojis, or any of that kind of nonsense. In spite of that malfeasance, we don't seem to have much trouble understanding when posts like Crowbob's are meant to be sarcastic. When it's not as plainly obvious as it was in this case, it keeps things a bit more interesting when we are left wondering if someone was kidding or not.

Fellows, take a breather and ease up on the ultimate ultimatums for a second. Geesh. Hop out of the frying pan into the fire why dontcha. Or maybe PP just shuts down OT/PARF altogether. Zeke has contributed more than his fair share on this site. He is dealing with issues as well as responsibility for all. Did you expect him to not be cranky? It was one comment. And he is the boss man. Say "yes sir I'll try to do better" and get over it.

Thank you for the stories David.

Gents, nobody can offend me with his or her opinion. Milt is as solid as they come and I have the utmost respect for him. I appreciate you brother.

After all is said and done, it's just a man (me) recounting some of the crazy and bizarre tales of being a street cop in Los Angeles.

Rock on brothers and sisters!!!

I apologize for the distraction from your thread, David.

I feel nothing but awe and have enormous respect for anyone who does what you do.

Thank you.

If a moderator is going to offer his opinion he should he make his role as a moderator clear. Its a fair question. There are no rules on this board, so far as I know, that require sarcasm to be posted in green.

With all due respect Zeke, you should put up or shut up. Should all sarcasm be posted in green font or not?

You want to be ban me for this for this go for it. But I think Wayne would want us to have a say. Make the rules clear and we'll follow them.

In all honesty Zeke I think you sent this thread down south with your own personal opinion.

Didn't read the whole thread. Similar nutty case, also in CA. Police roll up to see 2 guys laying next to each other, stoned out on who knows what. One of them was eating the other guys face off. Police ordered the guy to stop but he wouldn't. Police shot and killed the guy. The other guy, now w/o a face survived. Months later I saw a story where the guy was getting a new face.

I just want to clarify what I said above since, in retrospect, it looks an awful lot like a snooty challenge posed to Zeke.

I never meant it to be taken as such. To be clear, Zeke has my full support in his role as moderator. What a thankless job. Especially with guys like me hanging around.

Zeke, I owe you an apology. I'm sorry for my snarky response to your efforts at trying to keep a lid on all of this. Keep up the good work, and try not to let guys like me get you down. We all appreciate your efforts.

Are you sure that wasn't in south Florida, somewhere near Miami?

Wayne is long gone from Pelican (at least as far as owner/operator status). There's a new sheriff in town.
