I don't want to usurp the moderators job,


Please, do take an interest in welcoming new guys. We mods don't have a corner on the job, and we sure can use the help. I know I have trouble keeping up with all the posts and threads, and noticing when new people post for the first time. I am always afraid that I will miss someone, and I don't want to do that. So feel free to point out and welcome new folks, even starting their own thread to do so. It'd be a help to us, for sure..

I had to look that one up:

–verb (used with object)
 1. to seize and hold (a position, office, power, etc.) by force or without legal right: The pretender tried to usurp the throne. 
2. to use without authority or right; employ wrongfully: The magazine usurped copyrighted material. 

–verb (used without object)
 3. to commit forcible or illegal seizure of an office, power, etc.; encroach.

David,
You might want to send that one to Jeff Foxworthy.

I agree with James C on this one. I do not read every post here and sometimes a new poster comes in under the radar. I think it's great when I see our members jump in and welcome them. After all we are a reluctant brotherhood here.

I try to keep my eyes open for new comers, and to start a new thread.

Not the definition of UNSURP I was thinking about, the James used the term, shows his noble and regal blood at work. lol.

As the recent usurper of record in the case of Buzzd of the Vancouver persuasion, I thank James and Tony for their dispensation from strict forum etiquette observed in other web jurisdictions, but which, it would seem from David's post, is more honored here in the breech than the observance.

Now, as for David's sticky question: "Is unsurp the process where one removes the syrup from their pancakes?" I think the word David is looking for is 'unslurp' which is the process of disgorging said syrup in a spewing fashion via rapid lung collapse through pursed lips. This practice, I understand, is much favored in Southern pancake restaurants by PCa'ers as part of Shrove Tuesday festivities and is generally preceded by a Johnny Horton Rebel Cry of "the Red Coats are coming, the Red Coats are coming," all of which is excused as being GFMPH.

USURP away...
 
As a long time poster here, I remember the recent historical times when moderators were worn out at regular intervals.  I am happy to thank the moderators and regulars who care enough to give back.  Thank you...thank you... for the time you spend helping the people who "click" on here looking for answers and support.
 
The only reason I have been around here for three years is because it is nice to see the people who really care; do their thing.  So, thank you moderators, thank you regular contributors.  You are doing a worthwhile thing. 
 
Everyone has something to contribute. keep doing it.

In Canada, we sometime refer to pancake syrup as "Maple Surpul" which I am convinced is a derivitive of unsurp.

Regards,
Bill


Pre-Op: Age 64. Diagnosed with Pca January 2009.
PSA 5.6, Gleason 3+3=6, T1c
Biopsy: TRUS biopsies of prostate left adenocarcinoma of prostate involving part of 1/4 biopsy fragments, less than 10% of the surface area involved, CT scan clear.
Treatment choice: Robotic Assisted Laparoscopic Prostatectomy - September 29/09.  Pre-op PSA down to 5.28 which I attribute to visualization techniques and a new vegetarian diet.
Post-Op: Robotic Prostatectomy - 09/29/09, back home 10/02/09.
Pathology - 10/14/09  Gleason Score remained at 3+3 = 6 as it was when originally diagnosed. There were no positive margins. Tumors were found in both lobes and involved 3-5% of the prostate. There was no Seminal Vesicle, Perineural, Lymphovascular or Lymph node involvement, and the bladder neck was also cancer free. 
Continence 10/16/09 - 3-4 pads a day and working on pelvic floor exercises as prescribed.
Potency: 10/16/09 - Zip, nada
State of mind: Excellent - always positive.
