    It's apparent by just a casual viewing of the threads here on this forum

    that there are "some people" who regularly join in the discussions

    that just love "one liners", "zingers", "cuts" and the like. This

    site is about making money off the conversations of the participants,

    who would I see about creating a section where those "some people" could,

    on a given topic begin to trade thoughts and verbal attacks (in good humor of course)

    jabs knowing that's the desired outcome. It can be "Pay per View" for the

    1000 or so visitors that are here just to "learn".

    And speaking of zingers, cuts and the like, seems you just did what you are accusing others of doing. Pot, meet kettle.

    Does something spectacular have to happen for the event to start? Will there be fireworks, a screeching guitar solo or the "wave?"

    Duh! I am Kettle and admit I enjoy a bit of banter, If you thought I wasn't including myself in the Battle Royale you were mistake.

    Wait on the go ahead from corporate office. Then will need several weeks to promote the event etc. etc.etc. How about a wave to a screeching guitar solo under the booming of fireworks. Since I haven't noticed you in the contender pot (haha) How are you at setting up such stuff?

    Please explain contender pot. I know your words white eyes. I just want to hear it from the donkey's mouth.

    Sorry Guy's! my experience regarding you two is, although you have shown improvement at time, you don't have the heart to consistently level the death blow. No 'eye of the tiger', but you could be my "corner men" if you can apply ice and hand me a water bottle.

    I generally like the idea in the OP, but think a "Survivor" Baptist Board Island game might be better. We simply have a poll and vote certain posters off our little island in the interweb ocean. The tribe has spoken and "Poof"

    I'd be gone first round. Think I could hold my own in a PPV slam down.

    My experience with you is -

    You speak in riddles
    For many of the threads you start your intentions are unclear
    You are a response baiter
    You jab harder than most
    You introduce people who don’t seem to be there at all
    You can't spell Georgia. You are from Georgia right?

    Have a great day :wavey:

    Just to try to clarify the purpose of the Battle Royale. It is to give those that are inclined to sarcasm and cuts an arena where they are "welcome" to use those gifts they've been given.

    Kinda like the game section where each person solves and creates a problem. Each person will comment with a remark to the previous poster (S) THUS, letting out that snark in a controlled environment hopefully draining the need to regularly do it during typical discussions.

    And, so the average "lurker" doesn't have to see it, let them pay to watch satisfying that "car wreck" need to look. (as I've recently seen it described.)
