Got to work a few minutes late. The only souls to be seen were workers painting the walls. Eventually one other teacher showed up.

All right then.

I saw an advert for Air Seoul, and immediately thought that it would be funny if they flew to Gander (or Shannon). 

The Newfoundland (or Irish) accents would be superb!

I'm just eating an avocado for lunch today.

@CO2- At least you got the target phrase across to them!  :laugh:

Speaking tests are trudging on. Still have two more classes to drag myself through today. That doesn't sound like much, but I'm at that point where I'd rather walk through fire.

I think my coTs can sense my disillusionment with the world right now, they keep giving me snacks.

Yes I think a sock account is a grand idea. Perhaps i could have a happy me account and a miserable me account (so basically just keep this one going). ALSO

I clearly missed something on here today because of the constant "unavailability" of the site. People were muted but why?

I know some people have gotten muted for going into religion discussion. A lot of accounts also get reported for various reasons.

I was wondering about that myself, though I only noticed that Donovan had been muted.

I missed it too.
Insofar as I know, "No jam" doesn't go about breaking the ToS so I'm also wondering what they got him for.

At least he wasn't given a temporary ban. Those suck.


Anybody have any good "The mods got me because..." stories?

Speaking tests are finally over.

The only good takeaway I have from this week is the amount of asskissery that I won't see again until the next speaking test Hell-week. It doesn't affect how I grade them at all, but it does provide me with enough entertainment to shave down my hackles a bit.

I once got caught up in mass sock-banning when my wife registered an account on one forum.

Hello all, your old friend Steel Rails here. fellow www.waygook.org user Donovan has reached out to me to put an end to this wild and reckless speculation as to why he was so mercilessly muted on this otherwise venerable forum. As you all know, there is a rather popular thread currently on the front page of the site that informed other users of the worrisome lack of rain in this fine Republic as of late, and to date it has sparked an important and vigorous debate on American showering habits. Donovan originally titled this thread '가뭄', an ingenious move that both references the crisis that has gripped this Country and gives a nod to the native tongue.  Fellow waygook.org user gogators! was the first to respond, and Donovan was quick to counter, but he noticed the thread title had inexplicably been changed to it's current title. Unhappy with the change in 느낌, he simultaneously changed the title back to its original '가몸'. Overnight, seemingly without explanation, the title changed once again to 'Drought causes water shortage...' For Donovan's next reply, he promptly changed the title again, this time settling for '비 온다면 좋겠다', sensing someone behind the curtain took umbrage with the original title. Little did he know that prior to this response he had been given a warning by a site moderator -- who will go unnamed -- that to increase 'visibility' to others on the site, he was to keep the title as the moderator had changed it and was instructed to not alter it again. But by this time it was too late and the damaged was done. He had been muted. Left without a voice to defend himself, he sulked for the entire day. It was little more than a misunderstanding, but that could not prevent the self-pitying spiral that was to follow. He ruminated that perhaps this had something to do with his other recent warning from same moderator, which accused him of violating the Terms of Service by starting a quickly-nixed 'Megyn Kelly Megathread 1.0', meant to bring some order to the multiple Kelly threads that were floating around on this site. Maybe, in fact, his disapproving references to other threads that were recently locked, meant jocularly, inadvertently got under the skin of said moderator. Nobody can really know, and at this point Donovan has come to terms with it and feels no ill-will. But butt-hurt doesn't pass so easily, and our friend Donny has decided that perhaps a break could do him some good. He's going to take this time to reflect on the online life he has lived, and the real-life opportunity it has cost him. He wants to see what it's like to pester people face-to-face. To express his anger, disillusionment, and fringe political views not with feeble exclamation points, but guttural growls.

This is what Donny asked me to share with all of you, but if I may insert myself here for a moment, I suspect his muting might also have something to do with his sending waygook.org user Mr. DeMartino grainy crotch-shots from the locker room after vigorous workout sessions. Some would say lewd; He would say they were tastefully composed.

In the meantime, Donny may from time to time post using his alter-ego account pecan. Until then, Waygook will be one bloviating blowhard less, but this should afford others the opportunity to assume the mantle.

As to why nicewaaaygoookkorea got muted, I can only speculate that it's because he was using an unlicensed Kal Penn vanity photo as his profile picture.

Donny's last wish was to share a laugh with you all. Please, see attached~
