Now that I got your attention:

Suppose 100 forums members post in a thread and randomly insult one other participant in that thread for a three day suspension.
On average, how many posters will remain uninsulted (but still suspended)?


Part2:
What is the uninsulted precentage for an infinte number of posters (exact term required for extra credit).

Yeah, I think this post is suspension list-worthy. Three days suspension should be appropriate.

Probably won't happen for a little while. It's Mission's lunchtime and McDonald's does not have WIFI.

The thread is an insult to my intelligence.

...Or lack, thereof.

I was gonna make this thread a poll for easy bigot confessing, but the system doesn't allow for a poll with just a single choice. Admin, please change that!
