Inspired by this news item of Northstar taking over LAF: TMP link

The simple truth is that this day is inevitable, though difficult to confront. Could be boredom, illness, fatigue, family obligations, whatever.

2. The equally opinionated Winston Smith;-D
3. GW
4. Frothers
5. Old Glory
6. Selected from the current editors

Bill has generally been doing a great job. So I don't think this should be raised.

jurgenation Supporting Member of TMP30 Jan 2018 7:15 a.m. PST

i agree I think Bill does a great job.

the staff editors? grin

Yes, Bill is doing an excellent job – I've been here for years because of him. That's, however, not the question.

Bill is amazing – and I am sure he has an excellent succession plan

Legion 430 Jan 2018 7:57 a.m. PST

It's classified …

That or Aliens …

That being said … I have been berated before because of my general support of Bill, at times. Even though he & I have not always agreed or got along, etc. Believe me in PMs to me he pulled no punches at times. I do generally understand his POV, etc., on things. Whether I like them of not.

I do wish he'd let some of those locked out return. Many were very worthwhile members. Many that he did lock out, not all deserved it IMO. Others and the list is long … Good riddance ! Many have moved over to the froll/farters site/septic tank/ Option 4.

I have notice, that there are almost 0 troll/froll attacks, immature childish postings etc., that only were meant to be divisive, full of vitriol, mean spiritedness, etc. If you want to see such Bleeped text you can visit the "farters" site.

But IMO that would be a total waste of one's time on the internet … and time in general …

Templars, Bigfoot or Aliens…the only 3 answers to any question!

12. He will download his personality and memories into the 'net and the resulting artificial intelligence will continue to manage TMP.

The Russians, to meddle with elections.

Andrew Walters30 Jan 2018 9:29 a.m. PST

#3 Oh please no…

#7 Oh please no, but maybe better than #3.

#8, 9, 10 – would they want it? Maybe.

And we should mention that we're assuming "Bill" is a real person, as every indication has indicated, and not a constructed personality like Betty Crocker, Colonel Sanders, or Elon Musk.

Obviously the best course is for Bill to take TMP public, sell shares, set up a board of directors, etc. This way he can get rich and then phase himself out.

ZuluPaul don't you mean Alien Bigfoot Templars?

Hey, they are going to upgrade server and software. That's novel.

Well, I don't think Flashman14 was talking about taking over NOW. He means when that "inevitable" time comes:

"Could be boredom, illness, fatigue, family obligations, whatever."

I did a great job as benevolent dictator during Bills absence this summer. Just remember if I take over TMP I'll bring back big great beautiful clean coal jobs. And I'll build a big beautiful wall on the border with frothers.

Gunfreak, it's time to take your meds again.

Bill? Who is this Bill you speak of? I thought that Tango was running the site.

You mean he isn't ?!?!? huh?

When TMP is taken over by the Borg, we will all appreciate that Bill's heroic fight against the Hive has finally ended.

"And I'll build a big beautiful wall on the border with frothers."

But will you make the Frothers pay for the wall Gunfreak?

Gunfreak Supporting Member of TMP31 Jan 2018 12:33 a.m. PST

But will you make the Frothers pay for the wall Gunfreak?

I'll say I'll make Frothers pay for it, but really the TMP members will end up paying for it, and even though I said a wall I really mean just a few bigger fences were there already are fences.

Volleyfire31 Jan 2018 5:36 a.m. PST

Yoda. Take over someday he will.

An unmarked minefield, with a scattered IED/booby traps mixed in should be added to the wall … at least a virtual one. The frolls deserve no quarter or even no dimes, nickels or pennies either … money

Great idea Legion. That makes a lot of cents.
