The home page of the JiG (intermediate) forum has the welcome message
Welcome to the BEST forum at JavaRanch - (of course this is just them two crazy bartenders talking ...)
However, there are 3 moderators, so who's the sane one ?

I think there is a flaw in your logic. perhaps the third bartender is also crazy, but is mute and can't talk.

I'm fairly certain that that statement was there before any of the current moderators became involved with the JiG(I) forum, and just never got changed. So it may be that today there are only sane moderators. Or only crazy ones. If there is indeed a crazy one, he may or may not have a shift key on his keyboard...

I think it is more like the third one is making the other two talk, and since they let him do so, of course they are crazy.

I thought I'd give him the benefit of the doubt, but you're probably right.

I think the third bartender is just lazy, and never figured out how to change it. the two 'crazy bartenders' i think are now both Sheriffs, so they're pretty lazy as well.

I am puzzled who's who.
I thing I know for sure is that I am a topic hijacker and I have done it with this topic also

Joanne certainly is sharp eyed! First Campbell's indiscretions and now this. The staff will have to keep a close eye on such a rabble rouser!

Oh and for the record, I believe that I am the sane one out of the three, but isn't that the joy of insanity? You don't actually know that you've completely lost it...

Nobody even bothers about questions of sanity on beginner's.

Oooh. I've always wanted to be a rabble rouser. Everyone in the office thinks I'm such a sweet young thing

Nobody thinks I'm sweet, nor young.

Aaah, you poor thing.
As I'm in a good mood today I'll change the mental image I had of you to a sweet, young boy.
Just for today mind - I'll lose my reputation if i keep it up for too long

Believe it or not Campbell, I had an impression that you are a graduate or under-grad (so I used to mail you because I was scared of other elder mods :roll: ). Soon you proved me wrong.

I'm with you there Amit. I had the impression Campbell wasn't long out of university. Of course, it could be that he was a mature student, so we shouldn't use that as an indication of his age.

It's the other way round, Joanne. Older maybe, but certainly not mature And EFH is right; you're as old as you feel and when you stop feeling you're old.

Don't worry, I was using mature in the sense of being older.
I think the term mature student in the sense of being emotionally or mentally mature would be an oxymoron

He intentionally does it all the time. Helps him in getting all the lovely lasses talking to him.

I've kept my fingers crossed so that Joanne(who I believe is a sweet young thing) does not turn out to be a lady in her 50's or 60's

P.S Campbell I'll be needing your highly confidential email, from where you can throw out some highly useful tips at me.

Sort out one of R***n L***'s problems. Then you can flirt to your heart's content . . .

And how has this thread kept off MD this long?

Have you looked at the best Design Patterns book you can get: Dating Design Patterns?

I shall have to get a copy; even the reviews are hilarious. But why is it so much more expensive on amazon.co.uk than amazon.com?

I'm not in my 50s or 60s Amit, but (alas) I am probably too old to be referred to as a lass anymore. So I'm somewhere inbetween - I'll leave it to your imagination to guess where .

Now you know Robin doesn't flirt, she's just (to paraphrase slightly) an extrovert who truly likes people of both genders, and likes to express her gratitude in ways that may seem out of proportion to some people

But in this part of the country you become a lass when the midwife says, "A lovely baby girl," and you cease to be a lass when the priest says, "Dust to dust, ashes to ashes."

P.S (Just between us, dont tell this to the mods )We all are really clever and that's why this is not in the MD till now.

Never say never. A sex change operation is fairly routine these days I believe and I'm sure a good platic surgeon could make you look younger

Gah! I was about to move this to MD to prove a point but I can't (must be a conspiracy, or actually because I'm not the mod for this forum) so here it stays in all its glory

I'll partly agree with the Lass comment though, when I was in Ireland it seemed to be safely used on any women/girl <= to your age (but not older!), I personally find it a nice term, but I'm curious..... do any women on these boards find that term offensive?

I think you are on to something given the way this discussion went. Moving.

Offensive!!!
Surely "Lass" means a young woman just like "Mademoiselle" or "Fraulein" (ok. I can't seem to get the umlaut)

I just dictionary.com'd it and you're absolutely right. I shall in that case be more circumspect about its use (not that I've ever called anyone that online, but it applies in real life as well ).
