I should post the thread from the Commies' Lounge a few years ago where I threw myself a month-long promotion party. After pirating the thread from MetalPants
, I talked like a pirate and fired my cannon the whole time. Got some others to make like pirates too.
With one post remaining before promotion, I went silent and lurked for the next two weeks while others continued with the thread. Everyone figured I had departed, although I don't think anyone noticed that my rank was still the same. After fifteen days, I popped up again with a final "gotcha!" post.
