    Elsewhere in Basses, Captain Wally (for it is he) said :

    i'm the self appointed Quiz Master (ala Homer
    Simpson with the pylon on his head).

    --------------------


    so.....the moderator seeks to undermine my
    popular quiz polls with an assortment of
    vegetables, eh? well, we'll just SEE about that.

    now....who here thinks that the moderator
    should...

    Much as I hate to do this and think polls can be very irritating indeed, I feel I just have to do this to help save Basses from the oblivion of eternal damnation by poll. ;)
     
  2. I will have to get back to you on this one Bruce, I am still in shock that you created a poll. :D

    I think Captain Wally is just Bruce's alter ego, so that he can blow off some poll-steam without losing his face...

    But since Bruce himself is now starting to create poll, one can wonder; what's up? Is the evil side of him taking over? Will we now be pestered with polls both from Bruce and Wally? These are interesting, and scary times.

    BTW, i voted for the show-down, you can't go wrong with that!

    I'd really like to see the showdown, which is why I really posted this in the first place. ;)

    But I just realised I missed off the option for a showdown using vegetables of your choice - damn! :D


    Carrots at dawn!





    Double-necked vs. double-barrelled, of course!

    All we need now is for Brad to agree totally with Bruce's decision, and we know it's time to repent our sins. :eek:

    Well it's only worthwhile if the Moderators carry through on the "people's wishes" - if this happens, then it will have been worth it - otherwise it's just another stupid, irritating poll.;) If Captain Wally gets his comeuppance then I will feel justified in this extreme course of action! :D
     
  15. Phew! OK everyone can relax now. Bruce has been taken to a 'happy place'...

    Bruce Lindfield started a poll? The anti-pollster himself?

    What is this world coming to? Everything is going topsy turvy!

    Next thing you know, John Turner will be playing a 4-string.

    ;)
