Article 98

The Secretary-General shall act in that capacity in all meetings of the General Assembly, of the Security Council, of the Economic and Social Council, and of the Trusteeship Council, and shall perform such other functions as are entrusted to him by these organs. The Secretary-General shall make an annual report to the General Assembly on the work of the Organization.

Article 99

Article 100

They shall refrain from any action which might reflect on their position as international officials responsible only to the Organization.

2. Each Member of the United Nations undertakes to respect the exclusively international character of the responsibilities of the Secretary-General and the staff and not to seek to influence them in the discharge of their responsibilities.

Article 101

I wonder how much time he spends on these things. Between the multiple screen names and Dan Brown-length stories nobody reads, he better be getting academic credit for all this.

Bo, B, and Columbo made me laugh, which gets them a reprieve. But the rest of you are FEEDING THE DAMN TROLLS.


In the future, I will sincerely consider temp banning anyone who feeds the trolls and obviously knows better than to do that.

A lot of you guys have been around for a long time and know the score with the types of people who troll for attention here. I know it can sometimes be irresistible to type out something and "zing" the bad guys, but more often than not, the zinger isn't so mean/perfect/hilarious that it's going to make a troll change his mind. It's just going to make him think, "HA! Made you type!" Please. Stop.
