Actually, democracy does work. Everyone over in RD agreed that Smon should be made a mod, so now he is! Cause it's not like anything was wrong over there...


"A few times in my life I've had moments of absolute clarity. When for a few brief seconds, the silence drowns out the noise and I can feel rather than think, and things seem so sharp and the world seems so fresh. I can never make these moments last. I cling to them, but like everything, they fade. I've lived my life on these moments. They pull me back to the present and I realize that everything is exactly the way it was meant to be."

Yeah, I was wondering why he was a mod...

But seriously, democracy never works on the internet because by and large, money is exchanged for domains and web-space. Therefore, wherever you go on the internet, someone owns part of it and it's pretty much up to them to decide what happens with their site (much like someone who owns a house can dictate what their guests can and can't do).

Yes, to a degree, one can take on suggestions as to the running of said forum/site/thing, but unless money is exchanged for services (so if you pay for a subscription to some site) members don't really have a say in things as you are free to come and go as you please and if you don't like it, you can leave (unlike, in most cases, a country, where chances are not only are you forced to stay, but you are forced to live under the rules of your government which is why democracy works in the real world... almost).

Hell, if we had democracy here, chances are, Ray would be a mod.

That's why I'm all against democracy. I want to become a mod the classic way: having fast and random sex with the admins, or through paying insane amounts of money. Preferably both, of course.

Wrong, wrong and wrong.

That is "the moral, proper and unfailable way to fame, success, power -- and, of course, bee yo thai chess(TM)".

Is there another reason why you could've been made a mod?

You left a space towards the end. Pretty thoughtless, really.
