was being rude to FB on his page, I think that perhaps FB isn't looking at

I also support administrator status for JTD, unreservedly.
I don't always agree with him, but the same goes for other admins,
from Jimmy Wales to The Cunctator to Fred Bauder.
OK, Jimbo is more polite than JTD -- but not all sysops are!
The note on [[User:Fred Bauder]] that Fred pointed out to us
is in fact very good reason for supporting JTD's promotion --
it demonstrates how Fred's personal feelings about JTD
colour his reaction to everything that JTD writes.
The post was in fact a model of civil behaviour.
On a side note, even if it WAS rude, if ever being rude
was a valid reason
to deny someone sysop status, then a WHOLE bunch of sysops are in SERIOUS
trouble. lol (laughing out loud, remember? You DID go read [[leet]], didn't
Yes, I checked to see if it had any indication
why "lol" always means "laughing out loud", never "lots of
even in a post that makes much more sense the latter way.
As it turns out, [[Leet]] says nothing about "lol" at all.
In your case, however, I agree that it means "laughing out loud".
