    Why so much damn intrigue?

    I guess I should also add: bad mods are like crooked cops. Always happen to see them go down. Other mods, LOVE YOU!

    This imbroglio does demonstrate a conflict of interest and an abuse of power.

    But why should we expect anything less when MBTI has been falsified by qualified psychometricians - but this is not recognised by MBTIc members.

    It is plain MBTIc does not experience cognitive dissonance because it has no intellectual integrity.

    And when intellectual integrity is abandoned, conflicts of interest and abuses of power occur.

    Part of me, no, all of me, wants you to post something interesting, Jeffster.

    Wow... that's a relief.

    Guys, I think we've got another leak.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers

    You know, I'm starting to regret introducing the topic of cognitive dissonance yesterday to the forum, it's being tossed around like marshmallows in Gruffy's secret photo stash.

    But I always appreciate seeing the word imbroglio on my screen. That's a fun word.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I don't know how to feel right now...

    Should I be excited or disturbed?

    Now that the seeds have been sown, only time will tell if they grow into skeletons.
