...I feel that I should discuss a very personal matter with you all togive you some insight into my mind.

When I was just 3 years old, I got my arm stuck in a plug socket and got electrocuted. The when I was in my early teens I accidentally dropped my kitten in a blender. These two moments have left me with very strange thoughts and I often have unusual outbursts.

Oh my. I sincerely apologise. I did not realise my mirthful nature would cause such trouble. I will make it up to anyone I offended. :(

Thanks, Limecomb. A good place to start might be your recent image comments. :)

Ummm.....

Isn't there some basic given about treatment of newcomers?

Even if their first posts seem to be a tad obtuse, is that a jsutifiable reason to personally attack them, call them names, and generally lambaste them in public?

I distinctly remember being reprimanded for a lot less abusive posts than this.

There was an extraordinarily inappropriate post by the same person in another thread--so it was a cumulative thing. The other post, and related replies were summarily deleted. So it was not just this thread that triggered the response from SC.

Wow that was fast. Their account is no longer active.

Right. Cumulative. Though I do like everyone jumping all over an SC member without having the full details ;D

And I kinda like the politely stated "Please don't be an asshat" line. You GO, L2!!

No matter how drunk I get, I must remember to never mention my kitten's demise.

Damn, what a way to waste my 100th post; I could have written something meaningful.

Except that this comment was made in a public forum in a manner which would normally garner a reprimand, for something that should probably have been handled off list.

Edited to add the "l" to "Public Forum"......guess my Freudian slip was showing.....8>)

I propose that "Please don't be an asshat, as your posting privileges may be suspended." be included, verbatim, into the Terms Of Service.

(I hope we do not end up with an "Asshat" challenge, though..... wait, I could WIN that sucker with a simple self-portrait.... hmmmm......)
