Perry Mason: "And so, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I think we can all clearly see that clayman is exhibiting anti-social behavior by attempting to boost his post count. HE...MUST...PAY!!! Let justice be served!"

Jury: contemplating for six seconds "Guilty as charged."

Perry Mason: "I need not remind the court that the minimum sentence for this crime is reinstation of "moderator" status for the accused so as to channel his energies into useful activies."

Judge: "I hereby sentence the defendant to eleven years as moderator in the plaintiffs' forum."

Clayman: "Never! Well, maybe..." ponders deeply and starts to like the situation

Judge: angrily "Contempt of court! Eighty-six years!"

[wild cheering; courtroom is cleared and clayman is led away and chained to his moderator chair, grinning]

This just in. Clayman has been convicted of anti-social behavior by boosting his post count and sentenced to eighty-six years of community service. It is still not known whether or not Clayman considers the community service a punishment. We now go to recorded footage of the trial.

This just in... it has been revealed that Clayman has been convicted for pumping his post count up to the small number of 10. How could such a conviction be passed. The public may think that it was a mock trial meant to be amuzing, but, being the experienced reporter that I am, I believe Clayman was framed. We now go to a photo line-up of the possible frame suspects.

"I give up!" TR26 comes out with his hands up and drops his automatic keyboard on the ground with a crash "I admit it! I just wanted clayman back as moderator! I give myself into the hands of the law!" is taken into custody, sobbing

<small>The jury will please note the criminal sneer upon the lips of the accused. Clearly this man is a hardened and desperate criminal of the worst type.</small>

It is hereby alleged that the suspect, one TRoosevelt_26, stole an item from the victim, one Clayman, & caused said item to be placed in a provocative & incriminating location. Said item, described as a "monogrammed hankie" bearing said Clayman's initial ("C") was reported stolen from the victim's office on 11 July 2002. It was subsequently found near a computer terminal used by moderators on a popular internet message board.

While suspicion was initially placed on said Clayman, subsequent investigation by officers of the Message Board Felony Squad determined that the suspect had stolen it for the purposes of implicating the victim in the crime of Post Pumping, a second degree felony.

TRoosevelt_26 is hereby charged under the following articles:

1) Aggravated Hankie Theft--That the suspect did, on or about 11 July 2002 steal a monogrammed hankie (Inventory #P-2705/J) and did cause said hankie to be placed in a location implicating an innocent party in a serious felony.

2) Post Pumping in the second degree--That the suspect did, on or about 11 July 2002 create & post various messages under the name "Clayman" which included brief, pointless, or nonsensical content intending to pump the victim's post count into the teens.

3) Contempt for Law Enforcemnt in the first degree--That the suspect did, while in the commission of the above named felonies, wear a sneer on his face intended to display his contempt for the law and all that America holds dear.

It is requested that said suspect be remanded for custody in a virtual prison with a 2400 bps modem. It is further requested that an order of protection be issued preventing the suspect from any contact with hankies, monogrammed or otherwise, until this matter is resolved.

I'm obviously surrounded by lunatics. :D

For the record, I've not been pumping anything that wasn't asking to be pumped. But I'll try to reduce my pumpage factor to a more manageable level, in light of the uproar its causing. And I'll also try to be quieter(while pumping, of course) so as to not draw so much attention to myself. ;)

Apparently my posting three times in a single 24 hour period was noted by the ol' PPP(Post Pumping Police). Constable Roosevelt must have had a slow night of it; bored and munching doughnuts. :D

TRoosevelt_26, I hope you washed your hands thoroughly after stealing and dropping my hankie, I had just used it to oil and polish my blackjack. ;)

Erm! Not Guilty your honor! :p

Yeh, right.:)

As the one who (I think) invented the term "post pumping," I declare this accusation and the sham trial and the verdict by the peeers (pron. pee-ers) to be a gross miscarriage of justice, and I will offer to represent Clayman pro bono in his appeal. The term "post pumping" was meant to describe the activities of certain persons who made upwards of 50 posts per day, blatantly increasing their count. Three posts in a day, even if only one nonsensical word each, would not begin to qualify as post pumping. Derangement, yes, post pumping no.:) So, I move that the case be dismissed on the grounds that this is a lynch mob, pure and simple, led by the true perpetrators of the crime, with the sole purpose of hiding their own evil ways by accusing an innocent person.:D

<i>As clayman is led out by two of our most judicious guards, he's heard to be singing a little ditty from long ago, "They're coming to take me away ha ha hee hee, they're coming to take me away ahh ha". </i> Poor clayman...the strain he had to endure just finally got to him I guess, poor man, poor man! :( Now he'll have to find a way to bribe his way to the local blackmarket dealer inside in order to sneak out his messages but then he's so good at "ghosting" maybe he can find a 'ghost writer" to help him in his "boosting" his counts up instead? LOL In the old addage "Where there's a will...there's a way"! Go for it clayman..we're with you! Ta and Good Hunting!

Haha, Chow.:) No, I am afraid you took my argument out of context. I said if he had made three posts of one nonsensical word each, that would still not be post pumping. But he didn't. He made posts of one (or more) semi-coherent sentences! So, not only was it not post pumping, he was actually making a contribution.

You must find another argument, or Clayman walks.:)

I was wrong above....I'm actually surrounded by nitwits. :D

I am not the culprit in the "Who Stole that Chap's Chaps" mystery. Having seen what happens when you try to put on leather pants two sizes too small, while still wet from the shower, I wouldn't dream of even touching them. :D

I suggest everyone have another drink, sit back, reconsider past remarks, and enjoy the ride. :)
