Why ever have you dawghoused Cleo Liebl? When she posted "Election Results" I am sure that it was about the HMGS elections and not about US National Elections. You give no link to the topic so can only assume you blitzed it.

Cleo's one of the nicest, most pleasant, unoffensive people on the face of the earth! I'm sure you did this wrongly.

It will give her street cred.

Uhhhhh, who won?

Agreed. It is just a misunderstanding. HMGS election results should be available in the next week or so. In any case, she will now probably have a very funny story for the newsletter.

Hafen von Schlockenberg Supporting Member of TMP19 Jun 2017 9:27 a.m. PST

And "trolling"? Really?

Are we going to drive the Liebls away too?

Andrew Preziosi Supporting Member of TMP19 Jun 2017 9:35 a.m. PST

I can see Miss Cleo's future quite clearly!

robert piepenbrink Supporting Member of TMP19 Jun 2017 9:54 a.m. PST

Free Cleo! Unleash the Muse of History, however she's spelled!

Or is this like Free Comics Day? Giving away introductory Cleo so more people will pay later?

As for the election, the Popular Front has a majority in the Cortes. They're laying off generals right and left--well, only right, actually--and they've packed Francisco Franco off to the Canary Islands, so that's the end of him.

This is really confusing.

The front page did show a TMP Talk thread last night with the title "Election Results". But when you clicked on it, the discussion was about something else completely that wasn't even on the TMP Talk board.

I even posted something below Cleo's post, asking the exact same question, about the election results, and I also asked if it was just a bug or if there was something I should have voted on … yet I'm still around.

Weird. I don't get it.

We should have a poll.

Assuming the check boxes are still there.

As long as there are free Cleos I'll take two..grin

Hafen von Schlockenberg Supporting Member of TMP19 Jun 2017 11:56 a.m. PST

I guess Cleo will be free by then,anyway.

Yes. They're a direct descendant of The Mugwumps.

HMGS is more of an all-night party, except that a lot of the membership goes to bed early these days.

In case you're serious, General--Historical Miniatures Gaming Society.

Hafen von Schlockenberg Supporting Member of TMP19 Jun 2017 12:25 p.m. PST

Hah! For a second, I thought they'd changed the name.

Not everyone in the world has heard about HMGS.

Edit: Or even The Bird,apparently,despite 20thmaine's efforts to spread the Word:

Editor,

Well, if Cleo was DHd for wondering about the "Election Results" topic title that the TMP bug put up on the front page for that thread, I guess it's only fair that I get DHd for having posted that same question on that thread.

Has anyone ever been freed from the DH?

Hafen von Schlockenberg Supporting Member of TMP19 Jun 2017 1:10 p.m. PST

I was. But not through popular effort.

I vaguely recall a "keep him in there" campaign. . .

Didn't see the original posting but certainly looking like one of those Bill??? events.

Oh, I thought this was a thread about Cleo Lane. Bap bap a doo doo wah wah ooh. At least I found out what HGMS stands for after wondering for years.

Ed Mohrmann Supporting Member of TMP19 Jun 2017 5:20 p.m. PST

FREAKING RIDICULOUS !! Cleo was obviously asking for
info about the HMGS Election results – NOT TROLLING !!!

Granted, she could have been more explicit, but given
her task as one half of the HMGS NL editorial staff
(Bob is the other) she needs the info !

There maybe better places to ask, but given the
resources here, no where else to get a swifter response
if the results are in.

Ottoathome19 Jun 2017 5:53 p.m. PST

I think this ran afoul of the lists of banned terms and words that will get you dawghoused. A potent reminder never to allow computers the ability of sanction.

Hafen von Schlockenberg Supporting Member of TMP19 Jun 2017 6:01 p.m. PST

@Ottoathome: "I think this ran afoul of the lists of banned terms and words that will get you dawghoused. A potent reminder never to allow computers the ability of sanction."

But I posted the exact same freaking question! With the same words.

Must be an AI program with the ability to apply the restrictions selectively.

I've no opinion either way.

Got me dan, I'm just guessing.

Kyoteblue was… and because of people asking for him …

Personal logo Bowman Supporting Member of TMP20 Jun 2017 6:22 a.m. PST

This should have been placed in the TMP talk board. But I agree. There is also no link to see how her "trolling infraction" occurred, which is odd.

When she posted "Election Results" I am sure that it was about the HMGS elections and not about US National Elections.

I've asked her to clarify, but have not heard back from her yet.

Winston Smith Supporting Member of TMP20 Jun 2017 7:13 a.m. PST

The US elections were more than half a year ago.

HMGS elections? Cleo actually cares about HMGS, unlike some of us who have given up on it. And when are they?
What board did she post that to, by the way. You seem to have nuked the thread. To destroy evidence?
Apply a little logic here.

And she is probably too annoyed with you to reply. I don't blame her.

Come on. You aren't exactly dealing with a staunch recidivist here, like some I could mention.
Be a mensch.

Personal logo Bowman Supporting Member of TMP20 Jun 2017 7:15 a.m. PST

You're worried she meant Puerto Rico? Or the upcoming election in Papua New Guinea?

You could have waited until she responded and actually see if she was trolling.

Bill: "I've asked her to clarify, but have not heard back from her yet."

What's to clarify?

On the main page the title to the topic WAS "Election Results", but when you clicked on it, the title showed up being something else. She then asked what anyone would have asked … "Election Results?".

In fact I was just as confused as she was and posted the exact same question on that thread before it suddenly disappeared. If the topic hadn't been nuked, the answer would have been there, plain as day, for all to see.

Why are we still discussing this? Do the right thing and let her out.

Dan
PS. And (brace yourselves) I agree with Bowman … this discussion needs to be cross-posted to TMP Talk.

It seems that TMP has seven deadly words, while MTV does not find anything wrong with them. In the tradition of George Carlin, I shall inform the membership, so that they do not fall afoul of the computer of doom. The seven words, we believe, that you cannot employ on TMP are COLUMN, LINE, SQUARE, FIX BAYONETTS, LIMA BEANS (not my favorite vegetable either), JELL-O, and MISCREANT TURDMAGGOT. Hopefully, this will prevent other poor souls from falling afoul of the computer of doom, and being sent to the kennel club.
I am eternally happy that my wife has been freed!
