I ban the guy above for even suggesting I have the right to say whether or not to ban the guy above him. That's his territory, not mine.

On the other hand, had you not said anything, I WOULD have been allowed to ban him because he would be above me. Instead you are, so I ban you.

I ban the guy above me for missing Kracker's post and thus rendering his entire spiel a bunch of gibberish.

I don't ban the person above me, because he already banned himself.

I don't ban the user above me because I am unsure how to say this users name, and I don't want to look even more foolish.

I ban Muzak in elevators, ketchup in little plastic pouches and hot-air hand-dryers.

("Simon" movie reference)

Much of the action takes place at a research institute, funded by a government grant and run by a group of insanely mischievous scientists. Originally their mission was to "save the world," but they got into "more interesting material" -- like inventing an electronic system to mess up the TV ratings and developing a gas that makes people stupid.

One day, a member of the gang takes to wondering what would happen if an extraterrestrial suddenly showed up on earth. So the mad scientists set up an experiment. They recruit a psychology teacher named Simon, brainwash him with weird laboratory procedures, and convince him that he's an alien from another part of our galaxy. Things get even crazier when Simon decides it's hism mission to save the world and starts to issue proclamations via national TV: No more Muzak in elevators, no more ketchup in little plastic pouches, no more hot-air hand-dryers in washrooms, and similar apocalyptic ideas.

It's a clever concept for a movie -- a man who thinks he's from outer space, and a world that's all too eager to believe him.
I leverage my spaceman avatar as reason enough to reference this movie.

Almost no-one does (spelling too for that matter), so I think I'm the foolish one for choosing such an obscure name perhaps!

P.S. Is "he" not gender neutral? I had thought it was, like "mankind" to refer to humanity, not only men...


I guess while I am here I should not ban the user above me. He is only human after all...

The user above is banned because Christmas sucks and it's apparently been too quiet around here!

The above user is correct about Christmas but is nonetheless banned for describing it with a word which doesn't pass the nanny filters.
