    Did anybody else wonder if the word "bear" was intentionally misspelled when the site was down earlier? "Bare" has a lot more sexual connotation than "bear." :confused:

    "Bear" could also refer to heavyset hairy men, y'know. So it's not unambiguous, either.

    "Please have patience" would have been better.

    You're assuming anyone knows that word.

    Maybe "bare" was chosen in the hopes that we'd all bare and play with ourselves to pass the time while the site was under construction.:tongue:

    Dig it; some literalisms can have some interesting connotations when left in very fertiles minds.

    The use of bare instead of bear was intentional.

    Re: Hooters. I saw a billboard recently advertising a Hooter's casino. Apparently the layout of the place was liquor in the front and poker in the rear. The billboard was changed after a few weeks.
