What K440 Poster Would You Like to See On Here?

If you have something so weird, strange or off-topic to post and think it doesn't belong in any other forum; you're probably right. Please put all your gormless, half-baked, inane, glaikit ideas in here. This might also be a place where we throw threads that appear elsewhere that don't belong ANYWHERE end up, instead of having to flush them. FORUM RULES STILL APPLY.

Nah it was coz you started really lame threads like "something funny happened to me while I walked across a street, my panties fell down"!

I disagree with you there UKJ. Whilst AiA can be a little tiresome with his anti Rainman tirades, he is probably one of the better and most thoughtful posters on the site. I usually read his posts even if I am not following the thread and 9 times out of 10 his posts are interesting and usually spot on.

He would be a good addition to CEO if he "officially" came over.
Maybe if you aren't sure of the subject he is droning on about, he may sound like he knows what he's talking about, but he usually doesn't! And don't be fooled by his " as a said before "/ " I said that ages ago" , self promoting , credit claiming bluffs. His regurgitating broadsheet pieces he googled, or trying to convince everyone how highly skilled tefl / esl work is! The proof imho, is the amount of times he exits a debate , with the " I'm not lowering myself" , and name calling speech.

:plus1: He comes across as extremely insecure and overly defensive.

The times the General called him out on his incessant bragging and self aggrandizing along with his penchant to bloviate Ad nauseam was purely justified. But the General was made out to be the bad guy, the mods kowtowed to AiA's whining and crying. He could not stand up to Gen's well reasoned arguments and took the easy way out.

Is AiA all bad, of course not he contributes a lot of fantastic info, but he has faults as well. As we all do.

Bloviate? Even if that's not a word, I'm using it!

Word Origin and History for bloviate
bloviate
1857, Amer.Eng., a Midwestern word for "to talk aimlessly and boastingly; to indulge in 'high falutin'," according to Farmer (1890), who seems to have been the only British lexicographer to notice it. He says it was based on blow (v.) on the model of deviate, etc. It seems to have been felt as outdated slang already by late 19c. ("It was a leasure for him to hear the Doctor talk, or, as it was inelegantly expressed in the phrase of the period, 'bloviate....' " ["Overland Monthly," San Francisco, 1872, describing a scene from 1860]), but it enjoyed a revival early 1920s during the presidency of Warren G. Harding, who wrote a notoriously ornate and incomprehensible prose (e.e. cummings eulogized him as "The only man, woman or child who wrote a simple declarative sentence with seven grammatical errors") at which time the word took on its connection with political speech; it faded again thereafter, but, with its derivative, bloviation, it enjoyed a revival in the 2000 U.S. election season that continued through the era of blogging.
