Just a thought.

Dear Crapmaster, could you please add me to the rather long list? Should give me plenty of time to gather and refine my hoard of superb crap.

That depends.

Will the box travel in a plane?

Hmmm, either you meant to post this somewhere else, or you're preparing to put a set of brakes into the BOC.

Or am I missing something?

I saw it last evening and it reminded me of Mtnbike. I was thinking maybe a sock puppet. That is all.

Same day as mtnbke's last activity "flinstone" was born, same condescension.. same need for attention, same attempted brow beating. It could be a coincidence.. but that's a hard pill to swallow, kind've like cyanide.

He's more like someone repeatedly dropping a lit paper bag of doggie doo on your porch and then getting irate at you when you tell him to stop. "Why do you hate freedom?" I'm sure there are lots of people out there like that, but it is an odd coincidence. Same exact MO.

Unwritten rule of for admission to the BOC: don't be a d!ck.

But I digress...

BOC landed today, though I must admit, I wasn't expecting it. I've seen none of the usual "I got it", "here's what I took", "here's a teaser, off it goes to the next guy" messages. I thought it was still a couple people in front of me.

I'll try to get to it in the next day or two. @mountaindave I will need your address.

In general, if you see that the box is getting down near your spot on the list, I think it would be nice if people were proactive and PM'd their address to the person ahead of them. That just helps grease the skids.

Well that's no good. It's not the actual crap that makes this game worthwhile; it's the anticipation and curiosity, and the photos of crap taken by others. "Hey, awesome, that was my crap!" This box can't be flying around the country under the radar...

I hear you, but in defense of @MZilliox, he did post a pic when he got it, and posted when he shipped it, and I posted this, so you should have gotten something in your inbox. I have my settings set so that I get an email when someone posts to this thread, perhaps too much for some, but it is the duty of The Crapmaster to make it seem to be all-knowing in regards to Boxes of Crap. I imagine you received a PM for your address, no?

At any rate, some investigations into the ancient and true BOC archives shows you as a multiple recidivist, one who The Crapmaster should well listen to, and perhaps I am not as omniscient as I would like to portray...

Here we see two things that are equally true:

Reviewing The Rules, I find no breakage. I, unlike our federal, state, and local governments that want to add more complexity to everything, I find no foul.

I do think it would be the right, proper, and polite thing to do to PM the next-in-line when you fling the dingus ahead, and give the tracking number. Sometimes we plan on being away on the expected delivery date, this allows for the sendee to arrange an alternative delivery date, or "hold at the post office".

If enough feel a need for a new rule, post your arguement here, perhaps I can be convinced.

The Crapmaster has spoken!

Hey, when the Crapmaster di tutti Crapi speaks, I listen!

I have no problem when others do my heavy lifting. Saves my back.
