In another forum I was active on, most arguments devolved into spamming goatse pics. I'll take a few tame trolls over that any day.  :P

You know, I hate to say this, guys, but based on recent statements some of you have really, really regrettable experiences on the internet.

I've spent a large portion of my life online, so I was bound to come across some unusual individuals. I also was t a practicing Christian that whole time, so that doesn't help things.

Don't apologize! You didn't make those corners of the internet. Just glad my experiences have been, comparatively, lovely.

Things don't have to be that way, tho, nor is it necessary to put up with it.

Well, this and a few miniature wargaming forums are my last holdouts. I've moved away from the other, less savory ones. This is by far my most active forum. I like the people here the best

Stop means stop.

In my world 'stop' means 'let us start dinner,' 'wait' means 'this is cool sledding,' and 'no more' means 'pass the ketchup.' Just a plain 'no' does mean 'no,' however. For example, 'No, I am not ok with my mother-in-law staying here for an entire week while she is on vacation.'
