i have a suggestion for a thread motto...

"If you can't say something good about someone...
by God let's hear it."

Thanks, DS. If you notice, you play a prominent position in the FAQ (i.e., it couldn't have been done without your thoughtful posts)

Now are you gonna keep the FAQ updated monthly

No revisions planned. It was a waste of enough of my time just doing this one, though, to be honest, a lot can be done while on conference calls, talking to patients on the phone, etc.

or are you just wasting your time here

updated FAQ & spending time here are both wastes of time (no difference as far as I can tell)

Breaking News - Santa Claus Subpoenaed

It is rumored Al Gore has subpoenaed Santa Claus over some "irregularities"
found on Christmas list handling procedures.

After the Florida Supreme Court ordered a third election recount, Gore
allegedly said "checking a list, and checking it twice" cannot possibly
discern the true wishes of the children.

And the part about "who has been naughty, and who has been nice" is clearly a
value judgment that does not take into account the circumstance surrounding
said malfeasance.

Santa's list was obtained under the "Freedom of Information Act" and
immediately a DNC boiler room call center was alerted to call all children to
see if items listed on Santa's list were, in fact, the true desired intent of
the kids.

Several indicated they had intended to ask for Sony Playstations, and instead
had checked off Nintendo 64. Many of the children were emotionally
distraught and felt the entire Christmas letter writing experience was
outdated and "hard to understand."

In reviewing the postmarks on Christmas letters, it was found by Democrat
Canvassing officials that certain letters, particularly those requesting "GI
Joe" dolls were not properly postmarked. Those letters (obviously from
Republican children) were thrown out.

Democrat officials have asked that all Palm Beach, Broward, and Dade County
children be contacted in person and have their requests reviewed for accuracy.

Santa Claus indicated there was not possibly enough time to get to each child
by Dec. 25.

The Florida Supreme court is now considering postponement of Christmas until
Dec. 30 to allow for a "full and accurate" list to be compiled.

That was nice, Nosmo. It's comforting to know that the general health in this country has improved to the point that physicians can WASTE F@CKING HOURS COMPILING A BUNCH OF OLD POSTS ABOUT NOTHING TO MAKE A SUMMARY OF A THREAD ABOUT NOTHING. If you were my doctor I would be very comforted to know exactly why you looked so goddamned tired while you were doing my surgery.

And how come you left out my best rant?
