    After the 2008 election, USMB imposed a stict "no gloating" rule and earnestly enforced it.

    Will there be the same imposed this Wednesday?


    Just curious.

    I remember an Admin saying that the 2008 rule was broken about 10 seconds after the results were known.

    Well of course. But the rule was still enforced.

    I wasn't here then, so I dunno.

    But I think the admin was intimating that the rule wasn't enforced at the time.

    If the independents gloat at both sides, can we get a 'gloat dispensation'? Because I'm kind of hoping to kick both asses a tad.

    What specific 'points' would anyone be making that haven't already been said? Just to do a nyah nyah nyah I would expect from those who always act like children here. But the rest? If it makes you feel [temporarily] smug, then knock yourselves out.

    I think gloating is ok as long as it doesn't turn into just another flame thread. (Like that never happens around here) :lol:

    There are two other sites I'm gonna' monitor on election night that are always good for the lulz. PM me if you want to know what they are, I won't post the links.

    :lmao: oh hell I remember that

    Maybe as long as you don't include family members when you gloat you will receive a pardon.
