Nobody except the chosen few are made to feel welcome here. It is an exclusive club and you are an outsider.

Yes, we wouldn't make you feel welcome because we're so judgmental about people who have different sexual preferences than our own. Not like Jack.

Everyone better be nicer or mouseman, who we all know is a real person legitimately asking about the forums and is not Darth at all, will be scared off and will not join the forums.

Please, share my "intended message" with us all. Apparently you know something I don't...either that or you're talking out your ass again.

Funny thing is, any newbie who read that post, quoted it, and replied with something along the lines of "Thanks for such a warm welcome. It brought a tear to my eye. " would immediately be viewed as a good sport and have a very good shot at really fitting in here.

So, Tinya, I'm pretty sure it's that last option.

The whiners must suddenly be bored for some reason. I was beginning to think they'd finally gotten it out of their systems. Oh how wrong I was.

Exactly, and that's assuming it really is a newbie and not Darth.

Any kind of humor, sarcasm, or irony will fly right over KF's head. This is how our problems usually start. I can't figure out if she's seriously that clueless or if she's simply faking it. Either way I don't have the patience for it.

kf: Dragonfly's comment was clearly tongue-in-cheek. I fail to see how it can be interpreted otherwise, but in any case I would thank you for leaving the moderation up to me and Racenut. If you think people should be told off for their language, please use the "Report Post" feature: that's what it's there for.

Everyone else: If kf, or anyone else, misinterprets a comment, that is not a signal to start a flame war. It serves no purpose except to annoy me.
