The Forums Go Boom

another conspiracy uncovered.

Thursday, July 16, 2015 by starkers | Discussion: WinCustomize Talk

Like how frustrating is that?  You wanna get in before anybody else answers a post you've got the perfect reply to, so of course you want continuation, and the next thing you know the forums have gone boom.  Gone boom my arse!!!!  

And that bit about the gremlins, I don't believe that for one second.

No, if the gremlins stole the page you're looking for it wouldn't be there later on... would it !!!

No, it's more sinister than that.

Me thinks there are darker forces at work here... and I'm not talking supernatural or Satanic, here.

No, I think it's more likely secretive government agencies... covert ops that even the pres doesn't know about, and they're trying to tap into our creativity because they have none of their own.  I mean, seriously, when was the last time a government employee was truly inventive or creative?   Never !!! They're not paid for that, so like all government agencies, they spy on imaginative, creative and inventive people to get ideas.... though that's probably not the only reason. 

However, I won't go into that here, because again I have digressed from the original thought.

So, who else thinks this Forums Go Boom thing has a lot more to it than meets the eye?  Like gremlins, for crying out loud.  For mine, they're much darker forces [not supernatural, though I won't necessarily count them out] trying to pick WC brains for artistic and creative things they cannot even imagine 

I mean, who else thinks a page has changed after a 'Forums Go Boom' Message?   I've often thought it... that text and phrasing has been altered since I was last in a thread, that text is bold when it wasn't before, and font sizes have been altered from past viewings.  This has been done to insert scripts and other devices that can suck creative/artistic thoughts right out of your head, I'm sure of it.  Governments and their agencies in recent times have new logos and themes they no way in the world have come up with themselves, no siree..

No, those logos and themes, I believe, have come from the brilliant minds of WC skinners and artists... they're sucking your creative thoughts and ideas and are trying to blame poor innocent gremlins. No, gremlins are only interested in eating, sleeping and scaring the crap out of folks on Halloween. The worst part about it is, Stardock has either been sworn to secrecy and dares not inforrm us for fear of agency reprisals, or it is completely unaware that we're being manipulated through the forums like this [well I'm not cos I'm neither artistic or creative].  I'm betting the latter.

Anyway, the upshot of it all is that skinners, artists and anybody with a creative bone in their body should probably wear a tinfoil hat when visiting the forums.  Let's not allow the talentless out there in agency-land tap into our resources.  As an added precaution, I'd be putting a bit of whiteout on the webcam lens... to be shure, to be shure.  I mean, the last thing you want is them looking down the lens and, unbeknown to you, hypnotising you with "look into my eye, look into my eye" and extracting creative data as you unwittingly stare into the webcam lens.

 

NOTICE: This public service announcement is not intended to scare or alarm anyone, but rather to ask that people be patient when they see the Forums Go Boom message... cos repeatedly trying to view the page can contribute to overloading and causing even greater delays... for everyone.

Personally, I think they should make the page a little more interesting than the "Egads".....they should put some music in...like so...

Yeah, music would be nice.... and maybe a film clip while you're waiting, but it ain't gonna happen.

If not the gremlins, who BTW really like music, especially heavy metal and Gothic Rock, those agency succubi would steal it and leave us with the samo, samo page blaming somebody else... namely the poor old gremlins.

Anyway, I've taken the necessary precautions.  I slipped out to the 7/11 and bought and extra large roll of tinfoil... to make dual and triple layer hats.  The bastards ain't mind probing me.  It's not that I've got anything to hide or anything, I just don't want 'em finding out how little I know.

I gave a bit of thought to whiteouting the webcam, though.  Didn't want the white clashing with the black of my setup, so I stuck some black tape over it instead.

I blame starkers.

In fact, everyone should try chanting this together...to the tune of Queen's "We Will Rock You": "I blame, I blame starkers. BOOM!"

See how good you'll all feel!

That'd be right!!!  I perform a community service and somehow it's my fault.

Quite frankly, there's a certain doctor in the house, and I believe he is largely responsible.

I mean, he hasn't seen a bone [broken or otherwise] since he retired... or a rotting appendix, either, so yeah, he's getting restless and these days spends his time pointing his bony finger at innocent folk like myself.  

Orright, I may not be entirely innocent - like I've knocked around with a few ladies of compromising morals in my time and showed them a good time - but I do NOT... I repeat, do NOT nick off wiv pages off of of web sites.  Yeah, that's painting my picture blacker than it really is... tho I became somewhat blacker when I came off me bike, not that it should have anything to do wiv missin' web pages.  Truth is, Skinhit and Smedley aren't around to blame, so I'm it, and not deservingly so, either. 

Nah, there's gotta be more deserving ones around here, I'm sure.  Just think of the main mischief makers around here other than me.  Like there's a certain retired doctor who makes mischief by 'shopping' members and placing them in unlikely or compromising position.  For mine, if he's capable of that he's capable of anything.

Anyway, I've added an extra precaution to stop those trying to probe WCers for ideas and stuff.  Yeah, I've stitched a dual layer of tin foil to me undies... to stop 'em gaining access to what little I know through the backdoor.

"Forums go boom" is an encoding of 'lets-keep-starkers-from-accessing-things-for-a-while'.

If anyone else sees it it'll be because the alternate response code is for 'we-thought-you-were-starkers'.

Very funny! And it doesn't explain how various agencies got fantastic looking logos and web page designs.  No!!!  I smell a cover up.

See, I knew it was a conspiracy.

The message 'Forums Go Boom' also contains a subliminal message. It says:

"Turn off your computer and go outside. There are people out there who have a life - please try it for yourself."

That's an outdated script which no longer has effect.   Curried cabbage was removed from the diet for reasons of self-preservation.... besides, I didn't wanna blow off me bum cheeks and have nowhere to sit.  So no, it has to be something else.   

I'm still betting on talentless bureaucrats and other artistic destitutes as being the cause... delaying pages to examine them for content they neither have the nous or imagination to create. 

Also, there's another script running to monitor the activities of a recently retired physician...
