MESSAGE FOR SPLOOFUSAURUS

I just finished a FITB with ten quotes and was made against my will to remove the authors.
Having sent in a follow up quiz (with no authors) YOU now tell me to add in the authors.
This is getting ridiculous!
I'll put the quotes in --but you guys really need to get your act together.

Ever hear of a support ticket? How rude.

No sun where you are at?

SUN is good...relax!

We're truly sorry for the inconsistency. We have spent time every day for the past few weeks hashing out the Ker-blunk rules. Justin is putting together a SKAG (Sploofus Ker-Blunk Authoring Guide) but it isn't complete yet.

Right now, we are following a temporary and very strict set of guidelines that are posted here:
http://www.sploofus.com/bbs_detail.sp?post=98939&cID=1

If you follow these rules and you get an editor who asks you to do something else, please gently remind the editor that you are following the rules posted in Hotwire. Sometimes when one editor has been out for a day or two they miss a huge amount of information and try to make up for lost time by editing first!

We really do appreciate all of the puzzle authors, and we don't mean to make things difficult.

Barry, I have been in charge of your submitted Ker-Blunk puzzle to which you refer.

At NO time did I ask you to remove anything: authors or otherwise.
Other editors in recent past may have requested that. It is NOT an issue with your current Ker-Blunk puzzle.

However, I have now twice requested that you credit the SOURCE (Books, websites, etc) of your information in your Ker-Blunk DESCRIPTION.
I asked that to ensure that your information is not plagiarized from another quiz-site.

Luvnmexsun is quite correct: a public forum is NOT the place for your grievances in this regard.
If you have a personal issue with your work, or an editor, please send in a Support Ticket.

Ok, so if I hate the Milwaukee Brewers, the St. Louis Cardinals and (ok, I know it's not football season but hell, since the damn guy won't just freakin retire) the Packers,is this the appropriate forum?

GO CUBS!!

Apologies for misunderstanding you. The source is now detailed. (Bartlett)
But I'm not sure why you would think that ten questions grouped in this way would be stolen from another source; simple way to find out: ask me 'did you plagiarize your materials?'
And no the answer is I did not plagiarize it.

Don't dis my Brett. I love him. He gave 16 years of his life to a team that is currently treating him like crap. I didn't miss a game for nine years prior to Farve when the Packers sucked, never left in the freezing cold, and then moved to New Orleans and re-became a fan when Brett took over.

Let him go! Gosh knows Atlanta needs a QB

Um...can't think of a team in more dire need of a QB than the Bears...SIGH.

Not dissin Farverererer, just Geesus man, make up your mind. Who the hell does he think he is? Michael Jordan? LMAO

Ya you right, but as a die-hard Packers fan I don't want the Bears to have a good QB. Besides, when the Saints (my new team) went to Chicago for the playoffs the fans were mean and nasty ("I wish Katrina had killed all of you") so they are in poopville in my book.

But on the other hand, since the whole Vick stuff Atlanta needs a shot in the arm.

Ya can't judge an entire city by one fan yelling nasty Katrina remarks. Or a dad and his son beating up the opposing 1st base coach at a Sox's game or....Oh shit, never mind.

We don't want your old, stinkin QB anyway, my 10 year old is gonna try out for the Chicago QB spot. God knows he's got as good a shot as any, at least he can't be as bad as the horse manure we have now.

Now onto the Cubs!! YIPPEEE

I don't think Vick will have to worry about football in Atlanta or Outer Mongolia.

There is nothing about Sports that is nice,
uplifting or positive - I resent the change.
This thread was about Barry the Bad !!!!
