*REMEMBER OUR HEROES* GRcade pays its respects.
Postby Carlos » Thu Nov 11, 2010 7:47 am

For today to pay our respects to our fallen war heroes I vote we have a 2 minute 'silence' at 11am when no-one is allowed to post anything or reply to a thread.

Anyone second such an action? If one of the Mods could temporarily pop this in an 'announcements' box or sticky it just for today Id be most greatful.

I hate 2 mins silence at work. It's not the 2 mins silence I hate, it's the awkwardness of everyone else not caring and just sitting there looking around at each other like "lol".

Anyone who posts between 11:00 and 11:02 gets a week ban?

Bans seem a bit over the top. Only if it's something to troll, or to obviously purposefully mock the 2 minutes silence.

Guaranteed it'll be someone trying to make a misguided political statement about war.

It was literally as it turned 11am, so there was every chance he posted seconds before but took time to tick over.
