Obviously there are MANY out there who do not get it.

What do they not "get" you may ask?

This place.  Look it gets rough in here.  If you cannot take it or dish it, go away.
Sounds harsh, but come on already.  I am so tired of people bitching because they have had their feelings hurt.  Why are you here?
No, people do not just look at your user name and decide they want to make an ass of you, they wait (myself included here) for you to do it yourself.

If you try to sound intelligent, then BE intelligent.  You want to use cyber speake, then expect to be mocked, use caps locks al the time, you will get a new one ripped and so on.

And we have ALL been called out on our actions.  You think I have not?  Or any one else here.....we ALL have been called, but it is how we react to what has happneed.  Suck it up, it is online, not the real world.  

Sometimes the meaning is lost because how you feel when something is typed is not passed along in the cold internet.  So what, then let someone know.  I have seen many misunderstandings here get out of control because someone was trying to joke and someone took it too seriously.
And yes, we are a bit more attack dog, but that is simply because we do not tolerate bullshit and fluff.

Now, if you feel you cannot hack it, or that your feelings are hurt because people are being rude to you, then either shut up and take the tounge lashing you seem to have deserved, or go home.

Now when I say we, I am not speaking for everyone here, I am speaking for a certain type here.  A type that I am a part of.
If I have spoken out wrongly about that type (I know who I think fit this, and if you don't like it) tell me, but I think I kind of covered it all.....

I am just tired of seeing this turn into the wench board, people crying about hurt feelings and being whiney beeoches in general.  If you have thin skin, move on....or if you want to stay, just SKIP the threads that offend or upset you.  No one said you had to read or respond to all the threads for crpies sakes!!!

Aw Muffin!  You're scaring away the victims!!!   :lol:

Just kidding.  I whole heartedly agree with you - we've had a wave of morons and drama queens of late.  Oh well, Lars laid down the rules of Roguedom and whining, crying and making everything about "you" isn't part of it.  

Can't keep up?  Drop out of the race.  Plain and simple.

I take regular beatings from Dmitri, Gardo and Brennan and others when I pull a stupid, do you hear me whining like a baby about it?  Naw, I take my lumps, learn from them and move on.

Muffin,

I think you're one of the smartest people I know.  I'm just not sure that warning them was the best thing for my fun. :twisted:   Oh, well... it's online Darwinism.

You will always get the individual who feels the need to keep throwing himself in front of the cannon right as they're lighting the fuse...then gets back up to do it again. Have no fear...

I, for one, love watching this board. It's like killer whales setting in on a baby humpback (no puns) when someone says something dumb. And the verbal parrying (sp?) has taught me many new and useful insults, which I am grateful for.  :D

I don't talk that much because I know if I went on long enough, I'd be the baby whale after a while, so I just keep opinions to myself and learn rom others...more fun to watch anyway.

Worry not - I'm fully expecting this thread to absolutely fail in curtailing the dimmer posters from ceasing their zainy antics.

Oh, well... it's online Darwinism.


I am reminded of a conversation about alcohol I had with a wenche over the weekend. She was relating an e-mail she had received that explained that a herd of buffalo is only as strong and fast as its weakest members, and that these weaklings are picked off by predators and the herd is made stronger because of it.

When it comes to people, alcohol is the predator; it hunts down and kills the weak brain cells, which is why we are so much faster, stronger, and smarter when we drink.

Similarly, the "type" of people mentioned by Muffin are the predators on this board, and they make the Rogues stronger and faster by hutning down and killing the weak, slow brain cells.

As our own Shadow Dweller would say, it's "culling the herd."

Hey, some of us resemble that remark....  :lol:

Actually...to be fair, I posted the Dionaieaidiaieia (sp?) House thing on the Wenches' Board and Dmitri brought it over here...so it wasn't exactly cross posting but...that must've just been the exception to the rule?

no people do it all the time, which is WHY I post such comments to the website discussion.....some, including my favorite wolf, either do not read it or just ignore it....

it is not something written in stone, however, seems it happens in these mass rushes where it bleeds out like a victims with lead poisoning.....and it simply irks the hell out of me...

besides if it is an occassional offense I do not mind, but some here, Eric, do it a lot!!!

Muffin,

   I admit you are correct. I step into the fire recently and got burned, and I will learn from it and move on. I had a "STUPID MOMENT" And what everyone wrote in response were right as well. So I took the advice and "Shut up" and let it drop. Thank you all for pointing out my stupidity, I certainly needed it. :oops:
