Re: Add lack of scruples....
it's a statement of action. it says (if you use irc) "brennakimi snickers".

you're just not nerdy enough for me; it will never work out.

Re: Add lack of scruples....
I don't know what 'snickers' means! Over here it is a chocolate bar.

Re: Add lack of scruples....
Thanks, it is probably the equivalent of our 'sniggers'.

Which now begs the question of what was amusing.

Re: Add lack of scruples....
yes exactly. just a different spelling.

the idea of someone named faith being no big on morals. just the whole idea of it tickled me.

Re: Add lack of scruples....
But that didn't stop her reading through the Private Admin Forum even though she had no intention of taking the job.

Hmm. I have assumed that most of what is in the private admin forum is there because it would be pretty boring to us non-admins. I would expect there to be anything that is highly sensational.

We can add low moral character to the list of Faith's faults. What a lovely person, ideal admin material.

At least she did not publicize all of that highly sensational part :D

Closing this one down
This would be a great place to discuss Admin's decision to "draft" Faith to become an admin. If / when Admin decides to do so, he can open this thread back up for business.

I think we've given everybody space to react and discuss. So unless Admin has something new to add, I think we're beating a dead horse here. We can revisit the subject if it becomes relevant at any point.

Questions? Problems? Take it to the "Thread Reopen Requests" link below.

Thanks.
