we have a submission and it has been seconded, was required by our unwritten and largely ignored rules,

thereby, this thread is to vote in a member to the Hall of Fame,

this member is Son Of Gloin,

some people must like his content as he has well over 2x as many likes vs posts

so when he speaks apparently a few listen, or at least go traipsing around liking stuff

All kidding aside, the guy has been with us from the jump, and certainly deserves to be granted entrance IMO

Please vote accordingly, and from there a final decision will be made

Demote that guy ASAP. He's always posting ridiculously fair minded insightful stuff.

Wow! I certainly did not expect this. Not at all. I don’t know that I deserve such a high GIM honor, considering that I am normally a grouchy SOB, instead of an SOG, but, whatever the outcome, I appreciate the nomination and I say thanks to the obviously blind, but kind hearted individual* who nominated me. You, sir, are a gentleman. (I assume gentleman, as we don’t have a lot of ladies on the site) I have a Heineken in the fridge, which I will pour and drink to the entire GIM forum, later today, however you all vote. Thanks to all.

*And the individual who seconded that nomination.

He is respectful and gracious to everyone - his morals are in the right place - and the quality of his contributions are top shelf.

Now if we could only get him to take a shower...

Showers are anathema to us dwarves. It’s once a year, or special occasions, like weddings and possibly funerals, depending whether or not we liked the deceased. And there’s that whole soap thing.

What is it, specifically you would like to know about Papa Gloin? ‘Cept he liked shiny metals, axes, food and ale, but hated showers like all dwarves. We always go into battle filthy and armed to the teeth.

Being Son of Gloin, it goes without saying that I must be Gimli. An unspoken, obvious fact, in my opinion. I took after me pappy, more than I did mamma.

Big “cat out of bag moment, here.” I am a much bigger fan of LOR than I am of The Hobbit. Can’t explain it, but there it is. It could be because The Hobbit was written more as a children’s tale than LOR. Tolkien took on big metaphysical, religious, philosophical and cultural issues in LOR. I always found that fascinating. Hobbit, not so much. Blasphemy, I know, for a guy who calls himself Son of Gloin.

I would much rather be Son of Gloin than Son of Groin. Although, when you think about it, all us guys are sons of groin. No?

Forgot what the name of the movie was, Mr. 2000 maybe, a Japanese player used the term, son of my dick instead of son of a bitch.

Maybe you’re thinking of ‘Mr. Baseball.’ That one was set in Japan. Tom Selleck movie. That was a good one. Mister Baseburu!

Should Son Of Gloin be demoted to Hall of Famer?

Is demoted the right word?

Definition of demote
transitive verb
1 : to reduce to a lower grade or rank
demote a student
was demoted from major to captain
2 : to relegate to a less important position
a pitcher demoted to the bullpen

Do we have to start a new vote??? lol

ahh grasshopper, a perfect choice of word it was

to achieve a higher level of understanding,
one must first seek to be a leaf,
on a tree full of leaves,
and one must then observe while remaining content to be but a leaf

So, Scorp’s all for a demotion, too. That makes two of us. Just don’t make it painful.

He's married the fair lass from the Loin family, the Daughter of Loin, lovingly referred to as a DoL. They're a tall tribe they are and the females are always looking for a dwarf, with a flat helmut, because, well, she can rest her draught on said helmut while the dwarf is having a heaping helping of loin...and they're both standing!

Voted "aye" for the stocky one...truth be known, I go against the mob on this..I trust the dwarf!!
