THE INVISIBLE EDITORS

To know, or not to know: that is the question:
whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
the slings and arrows of anonymous editors,
or to take view of them and their sea of corrections, And by knowing end them? to know: to ponder; no more; and by this knowledge to say we end the heart-ache and the thousand re-edits
that they demand, 'tis a consummation devoutly to be wish'd. To know, to sleep; To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there's the rub;
for in that knowing of the editors what dreams may come Wwhen we have shuffled off this website, must give us pause: there's the respect that makes the redoing of quizzes so long; for who would bear the typos and grammar fixes of time, the oppressive editor harangue, the proud man's quizzes, the pangs of despised rejection, the editorís delay, the insolence of power and anonymity spurns that patient merit of the unwary author takes, when he himself might his quietus make with a quiz wizard? who would sploofus bear, to grunt and sweat under a weary life, but that the dread of corrections after corrections, the undiscover'd quiz from whose bourn no author returns, puzzles the will
And makes us rather bear those redos we have
than write another others that we know not of?
thus conscience does make cowards of us all;
and thus the editorial hue of resolution
is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of anonymity, and enterprises of great pith and moment with this regard their currents turn awry, and lose the sacristy of action. - Soft you now! The fair sploofus! Website, in thy monitor Be all my sins remember'd.

Tip 10-31...Never give bunnies sugary Halloween candy

Uh, um, okay...
Have you been hitting the sauce a bit today, Tuzi?

I, for one, am enjoying the higher quality of quizzes lately. I just can't help but cringe at those old quizzes done in no caps and with all the typos!

That's funny Vickie! I must be slow tonight because it took me about 30 seconds of thinking "His name's Steve, not William????" to get that! LOL!

As I wipe a tear from my eye, I want you to know that was the most beautiful thing I've ever read. you silly rabbit! lol
I have always wondered if the quiz editors are also quiz takers? are they scoring off our blood sweat and tears? lol No biggie to me really I'm just curious.

) how long did it take you to write that then Steve? I dont agree with all of it, but it took some doing and is a fun, light-hearted way to put your point across.
Well done

i was just joking around. it took about 5 minutes to play with hamlet's famous piece. i don't think i agree with half of it, but it is hopefully a chuckle.

I'm sorry Tuzilla, but I'm afraid the editors would reject your post for typos if they were to read it!

Shamelessly breaching Tuzilla's creative copyright, how about this as the Sploofus National Anthem?
(To be sung at full volume, preferably after many beers, standing on table waving Union Jack):

Site of Points and Glory,
Mother of the Mind,
How shall we extol thee,
As our brains unwind?
Wider still and wider
Shall Wordrounds be set;
Sploofus, who made us mighty,
Make us mightier yet!
Sploofus, who made us mighty,
Make us mightier yet!

Any US versions based on 'John Brown's Body' to be studiously ignored!
