BINFORD! BINFORD!
I can't shut the fuck up about BINFORD TOOLS!
One thing that separates me from other moderator candidates in GBS is how I've always been welcoming of lurkers to our fine forums. There hasn't been a lurker thread nearly long enough, well I'm here to change that. Come on out, lurkers, meet some of your fellow posters and share your thoughts around this thread! We're waiting to hear from you! "Lurk more" is a thing of the past.

I always like to say, for every empty quote I get, there's probably 10 lurkers who also wish they could step forward and empty quote me. Now's your chance! Hell, maybe I'll emptyquoted YOU!

And don't forget, when election season comes, remember your pal Smugworth. A moderator for the posters!

I think a partnership could really restore a lot of faith to our fellow posters, don't you?

You know I'd hate to have to use my buttons for such a dastardly comment, fortunately I don't have any. But you should be ashamed.

Smugworth is such a powerful poster that he can post new threads from the Android app. Clearly a sign from above that Smugworth is chosen as YOUR GBS moderator.

Listen up, I'm a straight shooter and I tell it like it is, so just let it be known: if anyone wants to bully a lurker in this or any other thread, they'll have to go through ME first.

I usually only post when I'm hosed up. Then I skip a couple of pages, so I don't see when people respond.

I only emerge from the shadows to drop pure bangers then just as quickly disappear back into the night. I call it plurking (post lurking).

Lets just enjoy each others company as much as we can In the time we have
There just isn't the same hate from the regulars and long timers to make new users feel scared and feel they need to lurk for ages anymore. Well, I guess many of the stronger subforums still keep that up. GBS certainly doesn't.

If a new user asks a stupid question about the site everyone is far too ready to give them all the info they want.

It was a better time when we told newbs to lurk more. Instead of shitposting, you had to read the whole thread

Going onto forums to talk about RPGs and having every discussion be about JRPGs has been a blight on the internet since like 1996.
