Only proper for a king. His vote isn't worth more than ours: it's a whole other category.

Again, I I take no position on the proposed policy at this time. I merely & meekly submit a modification.

A MASTERPIECE! What genius! You have really outdone yourself today! I am totally blown away with your excellent idea! We shall Amend the initial petition and assume everyone still supports it!

One is either for or against our future King SSK. One does not simply remain on the fence with such sensitive matters! I fully support and endorse the arrival of the King. Long Live The King!

I will admit, I find these lies somewhat endearing. But they're still lies.

Even the love and respect part, Scott? Oh, sometimes I miss how you used to be... ;(

You need support my liege, so mine you'll have.

May I make another suggestion? How about we each be allowed to second the King's -up or -down on any post it pleases him to judge, perhaps by clicking on "SSK's Thumb" as suggested by glorious?

The King's endorsement is that of his own which has no equal. We are not at privilege to publicly approve or disapprove. And who is the common man to voice such opinions on these matters concerning The King?

At current stock prices, platinum is 6% more expensive than gold. Hardly a step up. Unobtainium is the thing, or at least its closer-to-earth substitute, plutonium.

I vote that we should set SSK on fire now, at the height of his reign, so that he will be immortalized at his best. Better to burn out than fade away.

Besides, he might have even better comments he's been saving, and what better time to use them, than at the end of all things!?

Great support guys, keep it coming!
As far as the Platinum/Plutonium/etc question, i'm fine with any, as long as it's higher than everyone else's. Obviously, better stuff would be better.

Fire is highest, and best. Oldest honor around. It would probably be singular too, unless Damage has grown a lot more bloodthirsty.

Um, how about we just send you off to Pluto? Pluto has no King. Pluto NEEDS a King. :-)

First, it seems like ronch is for and against this petition, and second, slowriot is clearly confused. If he wants his own petition, he needs to make his own thread. AND if he makes that petition, he'll get 0 signatures.

OK, it was fun for a while but now it's just a sucking chest wound. Locked.
