Who is the Internet Authority??

I think we need cyber government. The net is becoming so populated by people who don't do anything thing other than play games and surf the net that it's getting very dangerous to even be on the net. So do we crown someone king and let the net get civilized or do we just let the "word" manifest and play it like poetic justice??

JB, perhaps you were not aware, But jimhelm heads the internet surveillance team for the UN.
His cover story is that he works at a car dealership, but older posters know the truth.

You may want to submit your questions or concerns directly to him, but be careful.
If he doesn't like you he can have your IP permanently banned from ever accessing the internet again.
In short, Jim IS the internet God.

Have a Blessed Day.

I had a dream about angry birds last night. I think it was thanks to looking at lola's cookies!

Perhaps we need a set of virtual commandments, a baker's dozen (10 if you want to go metric), to guide us:

#1. Thou shalt not post about the "word" in Nothingland.

["Nothingland Something about nothing - game threads, diversions, time-wasters"]

Blasphemy!

Is this a revelation, are you saying, that "bird" IS the "word?"
