    Just letting you know, the Mariah Carey quote is false. Check out:

    This is an urban legends website BTW which has a lot of interesting debunking/verification going on.

    Don't believe everything you read! :)
  4. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Yeah, especially on the internet.

    Also, this thread is pretty old.
  5. Chaos Turtle Demiurgic CPA Member, Admin Assistant

    Thanks for pointing that out.:rolleyes:

    If you must dredge up ancient threads, would you mind at least contributing to the topic somehow?
  6. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    I was agreeing with Spidey that you should not believe everything that you read...
  7. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    You needed to agree four years later?
  8. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Well, I think it's an important thing to know not to believe everything that you read.

    Also, see Rooser's sig...
  9. Rooser Thread Necromancer

    To be fair Oversoul, there is such a thing as overdoing the thread necromancy deal - also I've made sure to necro things in a way that tries to rekindle newfound discussion of the topic. You're kinda stretching here.

    Although I won't lie - I do find a certain comedy in your nonchalant, "Gee, this is an old thread, huh?" approach to necroing.
  10. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Well, in my defense, this was one of the earlier thread necros I did. I am being more selective, after having already used the "wow, this is an old thread" line...
  11. Chaos Turtle Demiurgic CPA Member, Admin Assistant

    I have no problem with "thread necromancy" (great name). I've been known to do it myself one or...well, just once I think. But it's temporally disorienting and I think that it's best to let old threads lie unless one is actually going to continue the discussion in some way.

    Don't take it hard (I'm sure you haven't). After all, some of the things I pull in these forums would get me temp-banned from certain other forums.
  12. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Keep in mind that this thread was one of the first ones to undergo "thread necromancy" in this particular spell of digging up old threads. I did it only because this thread was very old and I thought the content was funny.

    The others are usually with a a bit more reason. The nuke deck one is a good example. We've actually been working on a deck for that (even if it is a few years late).

    Oh, and the UBB code one was mostly because it was the oldest thread I saw. I don't claim to have any excuses on that one except LOOK HOW OLD IT IS.

    Anyway, I can definitely understand that constantly bumping old threads would be annoying. Plus it throws other discussions off.

    The Casual Players Alliance Thread Necromancy Team in no way condones such conduct. Done sparsely, however, thread necromancy can be quite fun.

    You have to use it in moderation just like alcohol.

    This post so totally should not have an "edited" thingy on it. I don't know what that's about. It said "alcohol" the entire time and not some other drug, believe me...

    Oversoul: Hey guys, this thread looks pretty old!
    Chaos Turtle: Over-soouuuul!
    Rooser: Clearly I am the only one intelligent enough to commit thread necromancy. Also I am the best poster ever and am the best. My decks are awesome.

    Yeesh! This is O-L-D.

    I mean REAL Old.

    I don't even know if Johnboy and Billy still exist-- I havn't heard of them for years.

    (though their 'camel' story was pretty funny...)
  15. train The Wildcard!!!...

    Though it is an old thread, I rather enjoyed it...

    especially the knee surgery...:D
