Sorry, I'm not that kind of guy. I make a "sorry" political candidate.

I disagree! You started the "single vs. twin" thread and look how successful that was..er is! That, alone , has to be worth 50 votes! The problem is "apathy" at TF.

Walt,

Is it ignorance or is it apathy? As far as I'm concerned, I don't know and I don't care.

Apathy? Let's think about that.

Greetings,
Mr. FW. Campaign? This exercise is the ANTITHESIS of a campaign. Any nominees who have taken the time to respond have graciously declined the honor. I'm up to my earlobes in humility here.
I myself bailed when the criteria for induction was outlined. As a result, the "Hall" is currently vacant if anyone has noticed. I have chosen my new "title", which I think is a better fit to characterize me as a result. After all, other than 3 or 4 select members, I don't think any know my REAL identity and I would ask those who DO to respect my anonymity please.
Apologies for being so serious...um...er, no wait....

RT: I never noticed that you had removed yourself from the Hall.
Why does everyone take this thing so seriously? It was meant to be fun!

I noticed a few days ago you changed your status, but I thought I would wait and see how long it took the forum to discover it.

One usually doesn't bestow the moniker "enigma" on one's self. That usually is left up to others. I am beginning to really understand your true personality. My bad.

Greetings,
Mr.rochepoint. Yup, I was waiting as well but members were either too polite (well, some maybe) to mention it or simply unobservant. While I was cajoled and honored two years ago to be appointed to TFHOF (remember, pronounced ta-foof as in saloon) I felt, in light of the possibility of sharing my lofty position, I should abdicate. As mentioned by another member, and I can't find the reference now, this site should be educational and FUN. I normally post WRT the latter although a modicum of seriousness DOES creep into my posts during periods of comedic weakness. I'm happy to contribute and if I can generate a smile, giggle or nay, dare I say it, a guffaw or belly-laugh, I consider my post a success.

Greetings,
Mr. SD and Mr. Anode. Now THAT stuff is funny!!!!! Thanks.
Mr. SH. Hmmm....not mysterious enough for ya? Well, I'll just have to try harder....
For instance: What kind/size of boat do I have/not have?
Am I married or not?
Where do I live?
How old am I?
What do/did I do for work?
How many jelly beans are in the jar?

Mr. Enigma; I suggest you read RickB's post again. I think you reached the wrong conclusion.
