    Actually, this is similar to an experiment I did a long time ago.
    Say the following word out loud. Content. What did you say?

    "I'm content with my salary" or "We need more content on this page".

    Which usage did you use? Why do you think you instinctively used that particular one.

    You misread my last sentence. I meant "chuck the moderator" as in, Chuck is a moderator. Not try and throw Chuck in any way.

    Perplexed

    Here's another word just for you: noodle. Or a lack of one.

    Edit: Although I suppose throwing Chuck would be "chuck chuck".

    Mr. Jesus must be Vistawillships's alter ego and returned to settle a score.

    It's certainly a weird development, that's for sure. But I think the first version of this troll today was already banned. And it's like he reincarnated himself on the spot.


    Only Jesus can reincarnate.
    You're confusing me now. Speaking of reincarnation, I once remember this neighbor of ours taking a riding lawn mower and running over a small tree in the yard. Then, a few weeks later, after the tree tried to grow back he ran over it again.

    Jesus didn't reincarnate....sheesh
    He was resurrected! Two different things man.

    Fortunately for him, no one was camping the respawn point.

    Actually, 16 men were camping the respawn point, to be true to history.

    it was behind a big rock


    C9 mods should just disable the user registration process until the 14 year old (coding4jesus1+2+3, vistawillship) parents can be contacted to get him grounded.

    Dude, or should I call you coding4jesusn, your obsession with user-registration after multiple bannings is annoying man...lets the mods mod!

    Stop posting stuff that has no substance to it, too.

    Are you a real Christian?  If so, you'd be spreading the word too.  I think you need a few hundred hail mary's to make up for it.


    coding4jesusn I think that people like you make christians look bad in the eyes of others. You don't tell people about god by nagging them to death. People have to come of their of free will.

    I have read many of your posts and I hope people just stop replying on anything that you have to say.
    This was my last reply to anything you participate(d) in.

    I think one instinctively picks the "content on this page" meaning because it's more common for a noun to stand alone like that than it is for an adjective, maybe?

    I agree, I tend to think "table of content" because noun comes to mind more readily.

    As for a homonym, how about "troll".  Seems to be the official C9 word of the week, and it has that multiple meaning thing happening for it.

    Doesn't "Gift" in german mean a type of poison?

    Just because Charles is on vacation, doesn't mean this site has to spin out of control.

    Since we are on the topic of double meaning words...how about "chuck". As in, ground chuck, wood chuck, up chuck, chuck (to throw), Chuck the moderator, etc.

    Sounds like a gas station, "Chuck'nChuck"
