    Left for writing, cuesports and underarm throwing. Right for kicking a penalty, darts and overarm throwing.

    I would like to see you try to write something with your southpaw.

    I've hand-written in Capitals/Upper Case for longer than I haven't.

    Not sure when that was identified as yelling but if I want to make a point, I underline or highlight the appropriate words.

    When I'm writing, I have a tendency to bounce back and forth between upper/lower and all cap mid sentence rather frequently for some reason.

    As have I, starting at around 15-16, or about 30 years ago.

    It just so happens it resulted from being forced to write left-handed as my right hand was in a cast to mend the outermost metacarpal. It was easier to use all caps with my left and it stuck once I was able to revert back to my right.

    That has to be a thousand percent better than my non-dominant-hand handwriting.

    I'll provide an example.

    15360121952138365266648782410583.jpg

    "I can hardly write my name" is written right handed up top and left handed on bottom.

    Not great handwriting to begin with. It switches a lot. Some days it isn't too bad, other days it is kinda bad like it is here.

    Wow. That is even worse than what I remember. What is odd is that I was originally left handed, but my dad forced me to switch when I first started showing signs of dexterity.

    On the writing staff, we don't get along with @GTPNewsWire. That jerk drinks all our free booze.

    I would stay away from the donuts anyways, this was secretly recorded in @Jordan's office.

    Question for @TB. And kind of @TJ13.

    IIRC, TJ13 used to have his statuses set to no commenting allowed, but TB managed to still comment and there wasn't a fuss.

    TJ13, why did you allow TB to comment on your statuses? And nobody else?

    Yes, I know that TB is a moderator and can comment regardless of whether or not your settings "allow" him to.

    TB, did you have to bypass anything to comment on his statuses? Or does the comment button just automatically appear for you?

    Only asking because I was jealous that TB was able to comment on his statuses and I could not... :lol:

    (Not trying to point fingers @TJ13, just the only example that popped into my head.)

    You basically answered your own question.

    It's top secret. Mods will never give a straight answer. :)

    There are more questions in the post. :rolleyes:

    EDIT: I answered my own question there, to acknowledge people that I already knew that. To make it easier to answer the rest of the questions.

    I would imagine that they see a text box, write something in it, and then press Post Reply. Hope that helps! Seems a little magical, but thats my best guess.

    :rolleyes:

    I agree. Sometimes it keeps me up at night thinking of crazy situations like that!

    I'm honored you lose sleep over me. But that really is not necessary. It is adorable though... :lol:

    That.

    If a status is restricted, it doesn't apply to staff.

    If a thread is locked, the staff can still post in it without having to unlock it.

    About the only thing us lowly mods can't do is read private messages.

    Edit: reading the new posts that came in while I was typing, we can't tell the difference between a restricted profile and an unrestricted one. They all look the same so we wouldn't even know.

    Locked threads have a, shocker, lock icon.

    Lose sleep? I only posted that a couple of hours ago :scared: Oh no, no, no! I meant I keep myself up thinking of complex situations like that.
