There's a secret staff forum?

Can I use the Freedom of Information Act to request details of what is discussed?

Jaz: Proper nouns aren't acceptable in Scrabble. And since I don't let have a huge lead, I feel fairly duty-bound to challenge this.

Of course, if it turns out to be an acceptable word then you've effectively won the game. But let's hope that it doesn't come to that .

Well, maybe we should have a secret NON-STAFF forum.
I'll draft a sign:

"NO STAF MEMBERS ALOWD!"

Perhaps I'll just annoy one of you guys until you tell me what goes under behind the scenes.

We basically just have a forum dedicated to insulting you, Mr Gan.

And maybe Jaz and Hammerman too.

(Or something.™)

Indeed, it would have to be secret. If I was allowed to post in a forum dedicated to me, the world would soon be mine.

And my name is not Gan.

I'm afraid it is just the name. But it has the most awesome statue of Mevlana, which on the photo on Wikipedia looks like a wizard (he's actually wearing a turban, so it's just an illusion), and *shoots laser beams from its right hand at night!!!*.

Okay, but you can't complain about "Blair". It's french slang for "Nose". It's even in the Wiktionary.

After all, you also allowed other french terms, as well as "tums" and "swag".

Constantly daydreaming about someone makes concentration on work very difficult.
Please help.

Confess your feelings, get rejected and become bitter... then you can forget her and get on with your work! Everyone wins!

No, after he becomes bitter, he thinks the whole world is against him and goes on a shooting spree, that's how it works. The classic spurned lover mentality.

Or something...

By the way, Marek is getting very upset over in the sekrit staff forum... not enough people are using his sexy new comment system, so if you really love him you'll go and post some comments.
