The current titles the forum has are great. (Stranger, Newbie, Member, etc.)

But I noticed the Moderators recently assigned one forum member the "Whiny Cry Baby" title.

Here's the short list of other titles I'd like to see implemented. (I have certain forum members in mind for these, but I'll refrain from naming names.)

VTG
Art Basher
Smarmy Know-it-all
Thread Arsonist

This is sort of a 'Scarlet Letter' approach, but I think it would help deter some of the thread pollution we've been seeing of late.

I know you are funnin' . Once...was kinda funny...a new toy to try out. But if serious, I'd weigh in with a 'no'. I think it's cruel and serves no positive purpose.

I vote Zombie Zero gets "Smarmy Know-it-all"

Yes, I'm (mostly) kidding. I'm sure I'm not alone in getting tired of certain behaviors we see on these boards. I know nothing is going to totally eliminate it, I was just venting my spleen.

Joel, I think 'Wise-A**' is more appropriate for me.

Maybe I should take my own advice? I always tell the boys...'Don't light a fire you can't put out'.

FWIW, harlan, I didn't see your post as a flame. It was a valid point.

some additional suggestions that may come up more and more in the future:

Soke
Friend
Bunghole
Post-Kisser
Rethreader
Guesser
Dittohead

hmmm...as I write those I realize most sound kindof negative - you are right harlan, scrap that. sorry to have wasted your time, all.

If we had a list of some that were definite positives it wouldn't be an issue to do such a thing.

OK, mods, go ahead and give me one, kind of smart alecky, but not insultin.
