b1tr0t needs a time-out. Telling someone who was seeking psychological counseling but didn't want to tell their parents to use adultfriendfinder.com instead was ... well, I'd like to think the green has just slightly higher standards.

Let me know when it's my turn to be the time-out shot-caller.

Obviously you overestimated the standards of metafilter, or do we need to club you with the body of a armed 5-year old (assume no element of surprise as you dispose of the corpse)?

The green seems to be full of shit today. Why are gays so flamboyant? In response to a question about loans, "Just dump it into a spreadsheet and figure it out?" WTF is wrong with people today?

And b1tr0t's recent history shows a pattern of crap answers (but only his really recent history). Perhaps he's crabby.

I can't believe the flamboyant gay question has survived thus far.

I need a time-out. BBIAB.

I need a time out also , but not for anything in the green or blue, just because I been a bad boy.

the flamboyant gay question

Seemed like a pretty dull, straight question to me.

One of these days, I'll get around to having a proper flameout, but today I have to agree with the mods on this particular deletion.

I just wish more posts were deleted, on the green and the blue.


I'm still amazed that it took hours for the cosmic ray comment to get deleted. I probably should have left the part about the magnets out.

I was having the same feeling as SpecialK today, actually. b1tr0t, you've been a grouch lately and I wish you'd keep your snark out of AskMe where it's inappropriate and wastes everyone's time.

I just wish more posts were deleted people got timeouts when they were dicks in AskMe.

Fixed that for you.

It's a fair question, with a bunch of good answers. Glad it's still there, and I'm hoping for some more insight.

Wow I thoughgt the hawkwind show nI just went to was the best thing ever nut then I went to a bar and got trashed and came home to THIS! Time=outs all round!
posted by nowonmai at 11:10 PM on June 25, 2007


Since this is a callout about b1tr0t, it's the perfect opportunity for me to say that whenever I see b1tr0t's nickname, my mind wants to read it as "beet root"... How does one pronounce his name? Or, is it unpronounceable? Or, maybe it's some technical jargon that I'm unaware of and I'll really be embarrassed... Okay, don't tell me, I'm over it.

bitt rott. It is a reference to this.
posted by exlotuseater at 12:05 AM on June 26, 2007


I always thought "b1tr0t" was a cryptography geek's zen koan, ie Rot26 vs. bit rot (which would just invert the binary values of a variable).

b1tr0t is probably smart enough for it to be both meanings simultaneously, though.

Ahhh... Thanks exlotuseater and Ryvar.

Wouldn't that be 'rotbi'?

I always assumed b1tr0t was Six Apart's Ben Trott.

You're both wrong.

I thought it was BoneTrot... But then that wouldn't make ANY sense.

I dunno, when my dog ate a natural bone and it impacted in her intestines, she sure had the trots until she finally passed it.
posted by SpecialK at 8:14 AM on June 26, 2007


If she'd eaten beetroot she'd have had a nice healthy poo plus it would have been an interesting colour which would have made it stand out in the backyard so you could have admired it whilst you were scooping it away, giving you something interesting to talk about with your neighbours.

Assuming you're all talking about dog poo and not people's nicknames, which I guess you were, in which case I'm just being a dick.

And I thought it was supposed to be "BI-TROT".
