Sven wins.

 

This is a repository for links to notable forum threads/posts (and some outside websites). The reasons for my making this thread are: 1) there is a character limitation on signatures, 2) newer members may find these threads good to lurk through, and 3) older members may find these threads good to reference from time to time.

*Some noteworthy links only make it into comments below, not the main post (cont. page 2, page 3) and beware necrotic posts

It's a thankless job for only the most trustworthy individuals. If you're not levelheaded, as impartial as possible, and willing to do what is right despite what might upset some users, then need not apply.
