Hopefully you saw the meta bit in the Bullets today. Obviously that generally wasn't meant for you all (except to put you on alert that I'm continue to do my best to improve the community experience - hopefully I can implement some functional controls soon). But, it kind of also was.
You guys aren't assholes. Let me be clear about that.
But sometimes you act like assholes. Thing is, it's always well intentioned and often very funny. I don't want to squash either of those things.
So I have to just ask you: when someone else is being an asshole, don't pile on. Don't engage the trolls. Try to offer substantive bits in addition to the funny, snarky things. Other people follow your lead (and enjoy you when you're doing it right). You're the regulars for a reason. I'm taking a moment to address this separately for a reason. I love you guys, and I don't want to be put in a position like Brian at MGoBlog where he's got to boot long time regulars because they can't stop being assholes. We're not even close to that point yet, but I don't want to get close. So that's what this is.
Hugs and kisses.
