Yes, it's a special honor to be tabbed. Means you did grate stuff regardless of the vote count. Helps get over the bitter sting of unrealized expectations. Now, hopefully you can ride that wave into Woot's HM next week and guarantee your spot in the best of derby!

Definitely MST3k- witness:

I realize this has nothing to do with what you were talking about. But I just wanted to talk about my love for the woot filters.

Someone ought to come up with an essay or paragraph story that uses all the woot filtered words. Then, people could post it every couple of weeks, and it would be like Woot's personal Mad-Libs!

First you have to have access to all the filtered words. I have tried some out to see what gets filtered and its weird. "pwned" does not get filtered.

Most of the curse words are filtered, plus typical woo-toff words such as woot k_ller, etc. Someone's gotta have a list somewhere on the web...

Back from lunch.

Common chatspeak abbreviations are filtered, i.e. lol --> llo right now. There are a number of other "typo" filters as well, i.e. great --> grate.

It's the best episode. Torgo and his knees of doom. It really dates me, but I had a sound replacement for the original DOOM game that put all MST3k sounds. When an imp was nearby, it'd play Torgo's theme.

Actually, I didn't think about it, but typing in the reply area makes it perfect to avoid children from seeing it. I deleted it anyways. If I got probation for that I'd never be able to make it through the work day. Then again, my work productivity would skyrocket.

For some reason I was expecting "idk, my best friend jill" to get filtered.

It doesn't date you, I don't think. Hubs and the friends all played original DOOM. They were children, of course, and probably weren't supposed to be exposed to that stuff. I think they came out pretty well-adjusted though.

Me? Not so much. I was too busy watching MST3K and I became completely warped.

I did it for you. Working late is pointless if I'm not actually working, though, so maybe I'll go back for another long stretch.

Also, I've been wondering where all the fun was at. It was hiding from me here in the "Pub". Now that I've found you guys, you'll have to hide somewhere else... ::raises eyebrow creepily and walks away::

Unless I have a design in the derby I tend to stay away from the main thread myself, but even the pub goes dry from time to time.

What's "Satellite of Love"? I know it's Wootfilterspeak for something, but... whut?

What's the "best beach/water design" about? I miss so much here because I have to run off and mix/bake/cool/slice so much. :-(

Actually it was SkekTek's posting, which was still there last I looked, but I was just adding things to see what the woot filters did. It was ridiculously filthy, so I wouldn't want to leave it there.

It was this one:

h-o-m-e is satellite of love. you can see what it is when you hit reply, the original text is unfiltered for your viewing pleasure. or astonishment. whichever.

i live up the hill from a beach. i also grew up near a the ocean and until i went to college i had never lived more than a 10 min walk from the ocean. So i gave a beachy/water award to klswoot 2 derbies ago, and wanted to keep doing that award. i'm actually all set and found another that i like that will get that award. woo-hoo! no more thinking!

so, webfoot, what are you baking? bread for your new coop? or do you bake for a profession? or for fun? i used to bake all the time, and still miss some of it. i need to be doing more, but i keep procrastinating grinding my flour.
