Ah, screw it. I don't care anymore. Why try to promote good common sense and decency? It's like trying to get people to understand that gay marriage is about love, honor and respect. Not just the word, "marriage."

well, i prefer to stay neutral (or try in vain to be so), but to be honest with you, this is one of the friendliest communities i've ever seen. the Battle.net forums are, well... let's just say you'll see half a thread page of flames before you get anything resembling 'friendly'.

anyway... i really don't think it's realistic to expect all the people to be gentle and perpetually calm and mother-like... in fact, i've had my first RP character PARODIED, in the same RP, as an idiot fighter who dressed in black. now of course, he isn't one, but at the time my English was horrible. my point is, sometimes you really gotta live with the negativity of others... just look on the bright side, it's kinda like their way of saying, "Hey man, you're not really good yet, but you got potential. It's just that you could try changing a few things here and there, and/or revising this and that."

when you don't actually think of every negative or sarcastic remark as an insult against your humanity and right to live, you know, the magnitude of such, uh, 'badness' isn't really that deep.

EDIT: this must be one of my longest non-IC, non-article posts EVER, hehehe. IMAGE(Honor and Decency What are they Race horses_files/cool.gif)

Stop being such a goddamn drama queen and act your age.

Seriously, this is the kind of crap I expect from irritatingly precocious 13-year-olds, but not from someone your age. If Spiderweb was any nicer, it'd be "Kumbaya Land for Sensitive Hippies."

yea, but he didn't receive the insult of a supposedly cunning blademaster parodied into a dopey fighter with a 6-foot-long sword, in that very same RP.

Now I understand what it was like for Christopher Columbus to try to teach common sense to one of the crowned heads of Europe.

Ok, seriously. Making a post like this is in it's own way making you look like you are screaming out for attention. I think I need to introduce you to a certain concept. This, is the internet. If some people say a few things and you get sore about it and try to start a discussion about how they shouldn't have said those things, then people are not going to look very highly of you. If you wanted professional opinions, message boards on the internet like this one are not always the best places to go to get that. If your going to do anything along the lines of liberal arts and such, you going to always receive a mix of helpfull responses, and repsonses that are not very nice. Why is that, you may wonder. It's because People have their own Opinions on things and will voice those opinions, no matter what you think they should do. People act the way they want to, not how you want them to act.

Eh, MSW, it would be better if you didn't edit all of your posts down to nearly nothing so soon after making them. It makes coming back here after a few hours away so utterly disorienting. I suppose I can assume quite well what manner of statements you made in many of these posts, though, judging by the responses.

Sorry about that. As part of my bipolar disorder, my mood can change drasticly. I go on a rampage when I am angry. IMAGE(Honor and Decency What are they Race horses_files/frown.gif)

But I also have been having severe problems with my short term memory in the last six months. I can later come back to a topic I created earlier in the day and have basicly forgotten why I was so angry to start with and why I was making so big of a deal out of something so trivial.

I then panic and try to undo whatever damage I did. That's why I removed most of my protest posts. I wanted to erase this incident from my memory. Unfortunately, the damage has already been done. IMAGE(Honor and Decency What are they Race horses_files/frown.gif)

On top of that, my usual confident, who advises me as to whether posting the topics that I sometimes do in one of these irrational rages is a good idea or not, wasn't around to calm me down and talk sense to me.

On top of that, I forgot to take my medication this morning, and without it, I can be rather irrational about simple things.

I have to remember to take my pills more often or this could be something that happenes more often. And I seriously don't want that to happen. It's bad enough that I lost control like I did today.

I am already ashamed that I left it happen. I am not like this in real life at all when my pills are in my system. IMAGE(Honor and Decency What are they Race horses_files/frown.gif)IMAGE(Honor and Decency What are they Race horses_files/frown.gif)

Once again. I am very sorry. IMAGE(Honor and Decency What are they Race horses_files/frown.gif)

That doesn't still change the fact that this whole damn thing is getting quite pathetic. If you're leaving, leave. If not, don't. That simple. We're not changing. To do that you need a bit more than two topics in which you share your knowledge. You see, all of SW's members are just people. Different people, that is. Different people who all have different opinions, just like they should. To change that you'll need to wait until the whole world is destoyed in a nuclear war.

Oh, and ignore all of the text above besides the two one and a half lines. All below those are just crap mostly unrelated to the subject.

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned
I'll tell you my story, man
Though I wish I'd never been born
I'm loose at the seams,
I've broken my dreams
And my hand it shakes the pen
Come on, come on now baby,
Let the good times roll again

In other words, we miss Misc. even now, long after it has vanished into the mist. I apologize shallowly and insincerely for the puns.
