Wow, I missed some firewoeks last week. I didn't have time to keep up with the comments section. One question, why don't they troll here? There is nothing keeping them from it.

I can handle die hard, I've come to read him as a satirist that has no idea he is writing satire, because it is a lunatic.

Heh.

Eventually some will. But it's much easier to police here (warn status), and the nature of trolls is they like to troll in the easiest possible places. This is a little more complicated.

But I'm sure trolls are still reading this thread since just about every time I check in there several "guests" taking a look.

That would be fine with me.

I was so happy to wake up today and read good insightful comments on the main board, rational, non-aggressive thought is back.

Hard to figure out a reason for coming to an anonymous internet board, and going out of your way to upset people...but, if you're looking to take your mean streak out for a walk, a place like this is probably like DisneyWorld. You guys have done a good job ignoring them...

One of these days...BetterNews is going to announce that Aramis was really born in Kenya.

The internet is a nice haven for the lonely...and everyone else. :)

Its the law of internet anonymity. The internet allows people to remain pretty much anonymous (for all you know I could be a Russian spy from siberia) which makes certain people act like assholes. Unfortunately it just comes with the territory. The only thing we can really do is ignore it, because when you argue with a troll they win.

I thought also about posting a wedding registry thread on here. I thought it would be funny since Hansman and I are getting married and all. I was going to register for banana hammocks and buttplugs and regift the plugs to BetterNews. I'm sure he has a lot more uses for them.


Ha, I do need some new banana hammocks, so we can't regift them ALL to BN - just remember, I don't care when the date is, as long as we get married on top of a mountain, although, not sure how you are going to choose, there are so many in Iowa.

Hush your mouth! Like we'd really regift the hammocks! Just the buttplugs.

As for the mountain, the South side is pretty hilly. We could get married at Southridge since they aren't using it for anything else, that's for damn sure.

Did I mention that I cant stand BetterNews. Lately there have been some random posts by the "Jihad" Cubs fanbase.

People that really need to get a life.

Jesus. I love the interwebz.

Wow! It is getting particularly snarky out there this afternoon. I may hide out in here for a while.
