One of his winter goals is Jagged so he can prove to be superior. My guess is he may ban himself if you know what I mean...

The Captain is a breath of young fresh air into The Forum and we old codgers should chill out. Personally I long for the days when I was young and strong and confident. Who wouldn’t trade their hard acquired wisdom of the ages for the ignorance of youth?
I'm pretty young and I can't stand the guy. There's a difference between being young and being childish.
Dude your picture makes u look so olddd, I could swear you were like 65+, I dont know why LOL

Never, because his comments are not that offensive.

Good point, while we're on the topic, I think explosive diarrhea also get's too much undeserved criticism.

We know not the day nor the hour when the end will come.

I long for the brand new pair of shoulders I had in my youth. I know this is so off topic, but I want to get surgery to fix a bone spur in my shoulder but my doctor thinks I should instead just learn to live with it. That made me feel so old. Unacceptable.
Debating whether to remove an irritant? Sounds pretty on topic to me.
Bingo. Exactly why I suggested 20 January 2021. But perhaps both should get a 25th amendment. I must say that (even as I type) I think we are stoking the ego with these threads/posts, just like someone else in DC.

Oh, for goodness sake. Why continue to encourage this guy by reacting to his nonsense and starting threads about him? He would probably stop having fun and eventually cut it out if people just quit responding to him.

Bill M, pardon me if this has already been brought up but is it possible to just create a "Block Member" button like they have on Instagram and Facebook? Solves the problem pretty much immediately.

I like to foster an aura of mystery.

But for real, sunglasses and a hat can mask age a pretty impressive amount. I've started conversations with people on hikes who I thought were not much older than me, turns out they have three kids in their 10's. I have no idea how old anyone is on here unless their age is listed. Y'all could be 20 or 70 and I'd never know. Especially since the older peeps on here are generally pretty tech-savvy.

Murphy, your profile picture reminds me of Harvey Dent's sneer, from Batman.
I also didn't realize you were young. But how old is young?
