Wrong button?

Freericks 02-17-2014 06:27 AM

Yes, my assumption.

I shall! I shall!

Honestly just got a bit of a laugh from it - thought I would share. 99.99% sure it was just a mistake (even if the second sentence is problematic).

Poor sentace structure.

I'm sure what a "sentace" is.

I like how your comment on a comment missing a subject and verb is also missing a subject and a verb.

It took a lot of thought to stricture an interesting, as well as hamorous reply to something so simplastic and mundane.

I am glad that you recognize, and appriciate my efforets.

Stay calm, Thias!!!!!

Stay calm - it is all in fun and games.

troy12n 02-18-2014 12:53 AM

Maybe post it in some other language so they can legitimately reject it? Must be a slow news day

Holloran Grade 02-18-2014 12:57 AM

I notice they reject comments with 2 many sentences and 2 much punctuation.

I suspect this is an automated function, however someone posted the "shit" word on one of my photos in a comment, so who knows.

Ask Frank Orona about that.

Freericks 02-18-2014 01:40 AM

I've got at least a dozen comments that are direct questions to me like, "Is that spot easy to get to?"

Funny thing is, I "got" (and appreciated) Billy Bob's intentional mistake, but you didn't. What the heck, man?

:D

Um - no I did - evident by my response praising him.

Funny that, huh?

Dude is too close if an engineer could hit him with a water bottle.

Doesn't matter if you are at a grade crossing, standing too close while the crossing is occupied by a train is illegal.

Hatchetman 02-18-2014 06:15 PM

funny, some engineers stick their head out and wave, others flip you the finger.

Not numerous, but glaring! Close, but no cigar. The word you were struggling for is supposed. Surprised Jim didn't beat me to it!:twisted:
BTW, in these parts it is not unheard of for an engineer (or conductor) to toss a bottle of cold water to a railfan. Only thing is they generally do it in the middle of summer when the temperature is 100 degrees in the shade!

Freericks 02-18-2014 07:22 PM

Looking at the photo, I agree... he was way too close to the tracks (and standing way inside the closed gates there). Now, I know that spot well and there is a wide area on the south side of the crossing, but even still - how close to the train do you need to get?

I was thinking he could have used a telephoto for the shot, but getting hit by the bottle is dispositive of where he was.

It is not like someone in the cab can wind up and huck a bottle a significant distance like they could if they were outside on the landings.

Were I to be malicious from the cab, I would have opened it and sprayed the guy with water.:twisted:
