    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.
    Why is it a problem that I created an account to post this? I've been reading the boards since it's inception (and I'm a hold over from The Engine) and I thought it was an interesting topic in regards to science, not the religious aspects, so much. This is why I ghost messegeboards so much. No discussion about it as much as there's been paranoia.

    Jumping straight into any forum and making a huge, politically charged, first post makes people think the worst of you. It's the equivalent of walking up to someone in the street and immediately thrusting your views onto them, not polite. Read the threads, make a few posts in the discussions, give people a chance to know who you are and where you stand, and then see where it goes.

    Quoting whole articles rather than just posting the link is bad form too, if only for copyright reasons.

    i never got the whole "be cool for your first couple posts" thing, but i think its because the other boards i have been on are WAAAAAY less uptight with general etiquette than comic related boards.

    And annoying the mods is rude, or really ignorant.

    Why do you think? Rack your brains, go on.
