    I’m still waiting for my Ratburger decoder ring, but I guess it got lost in the mail.

    But seriously, Ratburger is great and very much appreciated. Thank you for  your dedication and all your hard work!

    Of course, these were early days, before we had The Moderator.

    The Moderator

    Things are so much more moderate now.

    Did the first post get its name changed?

  4. It’s been educational, entertaining, and (this is gonna be painful) a testament to how well a smart (oh that hurts), reasonable (I’m really suffering here) moderator brings out the best in everybody (now I need a quick lay-down until I feel better).

  5. Chef,  many thanks for providing a pleasant corner of the internet where we can chew over politics and culture and enjoy our internet friends.

    Ratburger.org is stable and reliable and transparent.   This is a fun virtual place.

    You and 10 Cents have put many hours in to keeping the place running, and we are the beneficiaries of your good work.

    Cheers !

    I am sorry to report that it seems to be true that saying something nice nearly killed Damocles. He is in an ICU on life supports.

  7. Guys, 10-cents, John, listen, thanks. I think ya’ did good.

    Not only you guys, but all of you who are in here.

    It would not be a success without you, each and every one of you.

    You have patience, understanding, respect, love, patriotism, fear of God.

    Thank you all and I say it’s a GO!

  8. A haven at first, a ragtag band of wretched refuse, a set of lost souls seeking someplace better…

    It has come together as a fine example of a village in cyberspace. We have all the folks who treat each other with just the right touch of comedy and compassion, who speak, listen and offer what all of us need, a response to our thoughts.

    I would say it has exceeded it’s purpose and continues to stay steadily afloat in the flow of bits and irony.

    It has been a privilege and an honor to play a small part. Thanks to Speaker Dime and John the Ratburgermeister along with all the rest of the Ratburgians.

    Worth keeping.

    Wow, Phil!  Calm yourself, don’t get so emotional!
    I still miss some of my cyber-friends from R>.  I’ve tried to tell ‘em how comfy it is in the Mischief, but lo, they will not believe, though one (me!) should return from the dead to tell them….

    By the time I got the chop at R>, I was addicted to writing for pleasure, actually doing even more writing than reading! I’m so glad the Mischief was here then to welcome me, or i’d’a suffered the agonizing pains of exterior writers’ block.   So thank you,  King o’ the Rats!  (Have you seen The Nutcracker?  the Rat King has multiple heads, an appropriate image here.)
