View Full Version : Staff

Just out of curiosity, is Staff (http://www.thefiringline.com/forums/member.php?s=&action=getinfo&userid=509) a person, or a profile used by different members of staff? I understand if it is classified. :D

I've asked this before also.

Apperently "Staff" is some sort of changeling or shape-shifter . . . .

I just pretty much assume that "Staff" is Kodiak. "They" say it could be any admin at any time, but I think it's George.

"Staff" is starting to sound like that shape shifter in Terminator 2!

Staff has many personalities.

Staff is the embodiment of The High Road.

Staff surrounds us and binds us. (like The Force)

Staff is an extension of all the members.

Staff is man and woman, old and young.

Staff is.

Staff just is.

Is Staff schitzophrantic? (sp?)

Staff is omnipresent and all-knowing. Staff is also a little over worked, just look at how many forums s/he has to moderate. And therefore, yes, Staff is somewhat schizo-frantic. :D

Or, as Gary(?) put it:
Staff...it's not just an infection anymore.

:D Good one!

Staff spelled backwards is ffatS.

Staff usually appears when the ffatS in the fire(ingline).

Staff has a home

(Actually, serious question here. Are SWAT and TFL going to share a common site entrance? Personally, I think it would be kinda neat and efficient if they did. I hit the above by accident the other day when I was fooling around with configuring a Win2000 DNS server here at home.)

ffatS is fouled up file allocation tableS. The mysterious entity that deletes days.

Thy rod and thy Staff, they comfort me. Thy dor and thy ffatS, they,,

Really, I think it would be kinda cool if somehow you could link a .wav file of the old Crazy World of Arthur Brown song in the Staff sig. Ya know, so every time it appears it plays "I am the god of hell fire, and I bring you,," :D

Staff is, and yet Staff is not.
Staff is that which, not being, achieves highest being.

Seek not Staff, for the seekers shall not find It. In order to find Staff, you must enter the state in which seeking and not seeking are one.

Thus spake the Zensunni Master Dave lo, these many years past.

Isn't staff on your kitchen counter easily killed with Lysol?

I keep seeing that on television...

July 13, 2001, 12:01 PM
Staff is everywhere but nowhere.

TFL Moderators and Admins are Staff but do not have Staph :D

Staff is as Staff does.

Bumper sticker: "Staff happens."

July 13, 2001, 03:47 PM
Oh oh,
This thread drew the attention of staff, guess we strepped in it good :D

Daggonnit, I had my dinner with a member of Staff this evening and forgot the Lysol!

He also forgot his glasses and his NRA range card...

Senior moments? :D

July 13, 2001, 11:28 PM
Just remember Mike, Staff is highly contagious! I don't think Lysol will touch it.

Yes, I had a senior moment, but at least I didn't forget my Kahr! If I had only been quick thinking, it would now be my Kahr. Drat.

Seriously a great time was had by all. But the details are for another forum.

Staff; the other white meat?

Don't worry, Malstaff (hey, wasn't that a play by Shakespeare?), the second I did my box count I would have known immediately that I was missing a gun.

July 22, 2001, 05:59 PM
Aw, Mike, not Malstaff. That was Falstaff. You know, the autumn beer that comes right after Summerstaff. ;)

'Course there's always the inept flag-waver: HalfStaff. :rolleyes:

Then there was the distant Gypsy cousin named Rollingstaff (who gathered no moss) and his Mom and two sisters name Distaff (siblings of Darrel and Darrel) who aren't with dis-staff but might be part of dat-staff.

Come to think of it, wasn't Malstaff the one who was often ill? Jesooee mal? I think he was on the FrenchStaff.

Yuck! DishereStaff is as contagious as datdareStaph!

"... wasn't Malstaff the one who was often ill?"

No, you're thinking of the guy that was always sick as a seahorse - Mal duh mare.

Me, I'm simply Malcontent.

July 22, 2001, 09:11 PM
Uh huh. Mal duh mare.

Mal, youse always horsin' around.

And that guy to your right, I suppose he's Mal A. Droit and speaks with an accent grave (as opposed to agoo)? :rolleyes:

(( This nonsense is contagious! I gotta get a life! :p ))
