    It seems more a case that people think before they post here.


    I think that the idea of looking like a fuckhead in front of Warren Ellis has more to do with it.

    Canes? Arse eels? Nah, looking like a moron is much worse when someone wields the vast internets power as Ellis.

    As far as the reason I like it here? The people seem to be genuinely genuine. Really real, y'know? Or at least, as real as people can be when connected through the interwubs.

    Well, I wouldn't go that far, but they're certainly bright and clever, and occasionally compassionate. Real is relative. Genuine is subjective.

    I'd say Chris put it best:
    <blockquote>

    That makes people seem-- well-- <em>thoughtful</em>.

    @rickiep00h

    I've been hit with canes, pipes, bricks, all sorts of shit, and none of it hurts as much as shame.

    @rickiep00h & Chris

    Correct sahs. Posted two times without thinking, sounded like a power-douche, and learned not to do so again. Shame is like swallowing broken glass soaked in battery acid.

    Hey, quite welcome. I think this place is full of fun and happy. Or arse eels. I forget which. Just felt that the atmosphere here needed a little noting.

    Well I posted for years and years over on the Terry Brooks forum, and that was great fun while I was there. But some new moderators came aboard and the place got to the point where I literally couldn't make a fart joke without getting stomped on, so I felt my time there had finished.

    I'm new here, and so far the discussions seem intelligent. I have yet to get to know anybody, but it seems like a smarter forum, which is what I need.

    I don't post all that often cause I don't really feel like I have a whole lot to say about things that would add to the conversation.

    I like it here though. It's good conversation amongst seemingly smart people.

    Thanks for hosting the conversation.
