Removed from the pool

[togr] is a group administrator [togr] says:

I removed two shots by 4444u.a.e, as they weren't tagged, and it was impossible for me to determine from the comments whether they were of somebody else's cat or not.

As for shhexycorin's offering, I'm sorely tempted to remove it. While I'm sure the tag "not my cat" is truthful, it isn't "somebody else's cat", which is what this group is all about...

Ah, no, good job you asked. Any herding images (both professional or amateur) should be posted to the Herding cats group. Thank you.

Can I post a picture of myself?

I certainly do not "own" myself. I was put here by Bast, so Bast alone owns me.

By a most fortunate coincidence, our pool has been graced by a photo of the oh-so-famous Schrödinger's cat, almost as a response to my previous inquiry!

In the world of particle fizziks nothing is coincidence, Professor togr. You were simply flying backwards (possibly) in a warp of some sort while the arrival of Schrödinger's cat was flying forward (possibly) and you passed each other (possibly) doffing hats (possibly). (See accessories in Are Cats the New Cattle thread.)

Would you remind the foggies of the world what the first plank was, Comrade Loplopski?

edited: make that "is" (the historical present in Hegelian dialectic).

edited again: make that Marxist-Leninist dialectic.

edited again: maybe make that Hegelian-Marxist-Leninist dialectic.

edited again: maybe remove all reference to dialect because maybe we are synthetic by now.

I'm ashamed to say that I couldn't remember what the first plank of the Hegelian-Marxist-Leninist dialectic is, so I looked it up.

Turns out that it was not his first plank after all. Phew.

Anyway, I was just looking for a place to paste the list of photos that I have removed from the pool, and happened to stumble upon this, the removed from the pool thread.

So here I am. And there they were:

It's a bit of a brutal cropping, but I've just had my hair cut and felt somewhat light-headed. Thank goodness for flickr's auto-link C&P feature.

On the subject of large marine mammals, what do the collective somebody else's cat administrators think of this one?

Should it be given the somebody else's cat seal of approval? (Subject, of course, to the addition of suitable "not my seal" tags.)

Will you please confirm that this is not, in fact, your catbaguette by tagging it "babette's feast was not here", "not my feast", "catbaguette" or "clapping seal of approval", submitting to at least 12 different catbaguette groups and wait for a formal invitation from two admins to a dress rehearsal of "catbaguette lake" by the Bolshoi ballet in Moscow, then resubmit. Just a formality, you understnad, Thanks!

Seriously, great job on pool cleaning, dr. loplop. Well done!

I vote that FlickrC&Pbot gets the Somebody else's cat catbaguette of approval, for its services to the cause of sausages and other such thingies.

And I appreciate your pool cleaning approval, togr. Here are a couple more hapless evictees for your delectation:

www.flickr.com/photos/maemae/174724890/

That's the second time borabora has tried to palm us off with a dead catlike thing. Meanwhile, maemae's post is hilarious (at least I laughed about it for far too long).

It depends what you mean by serving.

And "far too long" is practically every time it enters my mind. There's just something about the discrepancy between the Vancouver waterfront (which has certain associations for me) and a cat (which has others) that I find inexplicably hilarious.

Absolutely. Your friendly neighbourhood somebody else's cat admins endeavour to notify all potential "my cat" posters well in advance of removing any photos from the pool.

Our aim is for this group to be a cheerful, relaxed place to hang out, ambitions of Global Domination notwithstanding. I apologise for any inconvenience the removal of your pictures may have caused.

Having just spent the first hour of my working day reading this entire thread not only am I wondering how to send you all some soothing tea but now I'm worried that the picture I posted is wrong, as although Monty is my mother's cat I bought him, so briefly he was mine - from the moment of money being handed over until the car journey was over and he was handed (spitting and hissing) over to my mother....

AnnabelB is a group administrator AnnabelB says:

I think that's fine - as long as the photo was not taken, nor posted to Flickr and this group, while the cat was actually in your ownership. The gift of a cat, out of your ownership, into somebody else's, is a very fine thing and should be commended and recognised. I will have a word with the other admins (frankly, some are more bossy than others) and clear it with them.
