    Apply to Kyle or Cody I would think. Show them your resume and what some of your work is like.

    related subject,
    you guys got any suggestions for how to get myself to stop coming here?

    The obvious would be if I simply asked staff to ban me,
    but that's not going to keep me from sneaking back in via a proxy or another account.

    reason: I see that I've developed an unhealthy argumentative style, and trying to change this has been fruitless. just walking away from mmi worked, but after awhile I came back again.

    Sorry, I know random off-topic isn't the best place to ask; but other than PM's I'm not sure what is.

    Do like some of us do. Just read the news and come to chit-chat and talk. Trolls don't come to this section. Or if a post makes you angry just move on. Or type the angry post in the box then when done just delete it without posting.

    Recap:
    Someone wants to be a writer
    Someone wants to be banned
    Someone wants to be a mod

    Solution:
    Make zeal mod, he bans raduga, raduga regrets asking to be banned complains to Kyle, Celeron writes story on it all, impresses Kyle, makes staff writer.

    the problem isn't that I get pissy at trolls.
    it's more, that I get pissy at moderators who are just doing their job.

    and then I try to explain, and then get defensive or start pontificating, which doesn't help.
    or I send them angryish PMs, which I'm sure is even less helpful.

    It's not that they're wrong and I'm right, but that I see a misunderstanding in progress that seems of outsize importance.
    Trolls don't generally attack or bother me. It's probably 'professional courtesy.'

    But there's at least one troll too many on mmi (me). And I'm running out of patience with that one.

    What might actually happen:
    Zeal becomes a writer raduga becomes a mod n celeron gets banned.

    If you have an issue with a mod we welcome contacting another mod to look it over or send Kyle or Cody an email. They listen to feedback when it comes to how we are doing because we are the face of MMi in ways. (Trust me there are some heated threads in staff)
