Don't take this the wrong way or anything but do you know what you're doing?

By the way, could somebody fill me in on why we're being invaded by an unwashed horde of Eliza Doolittles?

The toothbrush was invented in England... If it was invented anywhere else... It would have been called a Teethbrush.

Just checking. I've worked at some offices where the guy who runs the website hasn't a clue about how to fix something like this.

Well, this is a tricky situation. I'm going to have to look into it more but I have a few ideas. If I post what I plan to do, the Harry Potter Fanclub might read it so I'm just going to keep it to myself for now... I'll probably work on it more in the morning.

The MN Culture Club stole their song apparently and made a "Twins Anthem" out of it.

Does anyone know the hole from whence they came? I'm curious to see the site they came from if anybody knows the URL.

Ha, did those yellow-toothed morons realize they brought more publicity to the rip-off song by coming here? I'd never heard of it and likely would never have even bothered opening up a link to see it if they hadn't gotten their knickers in a bunch. Anyone check out the Leeds website to see if they've tried to get a "We're going to win Leeds" song started? Or do they just use a grocery store bulliten board as their community forum?

If this was my favorite team's anthem, I'd leave it in the front yard with a sign marked "Free, or do I have to pay you take it?"

That's pretty much how I feel about it.

Why on earth would anybody think it's okay to change the "Win Twins" song in the first place? That thing is so awesomely corny and 1960s-ish that it should stick around forever.

And it certainly shouldn't be replaced with a song we jacked from a Leeds football club. That is the very definition of weak. WTF, Springboard guy. WTF. I can't express the amount of facepalm that guy deserves right now.

You didn't have to delete everything they posted. For instance, I thought their tits thread had some value.

I wanted it to appear as if they were never here. Letting them disrupt the board in any fashion only encourages the bastards.

Are the shortcuts to latest comments from the home page and 'what's new' list ever going to work again? Makes navigation a problem.
