I got my report card today. Well, I took all honors courses as a freshman, so they are tough courses. However, this damn computer, or, more specifically, the forums on the internet, kept me occupied for more than their fair share of time. My studies should have gotten a lil more attention. I did fine this year, got honor roll all four quarters...blah blah blah. Not good enough for me...I'm a perfectionist...though it didn't show this year.

So mods, for my sake, please ban me! (if I feel I am mature enough to be reinstated I will email you.)

PS-I know this is summer, but I might as well kick the habit before school starts in early/mid-Sept.!

Gotta do what you gotta do, zippy. Best of luck.

Hey, put your handle up for sale on eb@y on your way out and make a couple extra bucks. Maybe make it a package deal with an ICQ number.

I don't believe the mods will bother to ban you, think about it.

If you don't want to come to these forums, simply do not come to them.

Ban Paulson though! :D

If you really want to get banned, you know how.

And zippy, I think we'll see you back before you say. I think you are showing off, got honor rolls all four quarters. I hate to say it but it seems to be a paulsonian-type cry for more attention.

Get off your lazy a!ss and do it for yourself... Don't ask someone else to do it for you, when you have the power to do it yourself.

No, it's very easy. Just chop off your arms. Typing with your nose is pretty freakin' hard. Although, with your nose...maybe you could manage.

Just to defennd myself, apoppin, honor roll isn't that hard to make. 4.0 out of 5.5. If you average a B+ then you just made honor roll. HIGH honor roll is where I want to be. 4.75+...that means 1/2 A's and half A-'s to do it.

How else can I get peacefully banned besides this anyways?

There is no way to be "peacefully banned."
It's war. And war, as all Mods know, is heck. ;)

:D:D:D Ha ha, Zippy - I just said that to see if it was really your last post.:D:D:D

Admit it, you're addicted. If my cheap shot could bring you back, do you really think you can stay away? Especially if something really interests you or you just have to answer? You will be wondering 'what are they are saying'.

Perhaps, the best idea is not to go 'cold-turkey' - but limit your time here. It's much the same with time spent with any friends internet interactions or 'real-life'. Only check once or twice a day for a self-limited time - then get back to work or study.

It all boils down to self-control. And yes, we'd miss you.

Self discipline is the answer. Even if the mods ban you, you'll have to use self discipline to consentrate on schoolwork. It would be very simple to quit posting here and then fill your time with other crap.

I'll lurk a lil (20 min. a day mebbe), i'll be back in a few months after school has begun and i've proved to myself I can control this. :)

Thanks and farewell!

Mods: Why the heck aren't I banned yet? :(

Hi zippy, you wanted an apology? Well, "war is heck" and I had to see if you were serious. I am not sure what I should apologize for (anyone else think I should apologize?).

It was a bit of an attention getter, No? A cry for help - not a serious goodbye (sorry to spoil the 'magic'). Glad you're back even if you post a bit less.

EDIT: "sorry to spoil the 'magic'" of the good-bye IS an apology. Stupid me.

But Zippy, you were so helpful in the story thread, now what will I do without you? Sorry to see you go, but your right, if you can get your grades up that much higher, go for it. Your future is more important than these boards. I look forward to your return. :)
