Yeah, seriously, if you can be nice about it we can actually be drawn into intelligent discussions. Sometimes we get exasperated if we've answered the same thing fifty times, but as long as you aren't a jerk about it a lot of us try to at least respond in kind (or stay conspicuously silent in the hopes that someone more patient can).

I mean granted we all make mistakes but, you know, like Shadowcell says, if you can tell why we're assholes to some people and not others then you can probably avoid it.

Glad to hear some of our discussions have helped, though!

Welcome to the forums Varthonai!

I think you'll do alright. You sound like a nice person.

(well, I may be one of few people on here who thought rothide seemed like a nice person, if a very misguided person, but still...)

Enjoy your time here! And if you ever feel uncomfortable with the serious discussion, feel welcome to join me in my general frivolities.

I sincerely hope you enjoy your time here!

if you've really been lurking, you probably know what complaints about the comic have been raised over and over and over and over again, and if you have any sense, you won't ask the same questions or whine the same whines. if you don't have any sense, you will in fact most likely be tarred and feathered.

i doubt any of the regular forumites will tar and feather you for your gender identity or struggles therewith (in fact, i think you will find a lot of support, unless your issue is something like "i MUST be a man because girls are stupid and have cooties and teh gays are just icky"). we tend to do that to people who a) ask the same damn thing everyone else has asked; b) keep repeating the same argument they have made about whatever despite additional information, refutations or even points of view from other posters; or c) persist in communicating in gibberish (unless they can be funny while doing it). or, as above, persisting in showing that you have no sense.

also, it helps if you have a cute av. it's really the main* reason we put up with istancow - because honestly, who can resist a cat with a moustache? wearing a suit?







*it's really not the main reason. or at least, not the only reason.

The queer cabal of Sinfesters will protect you, don't worry. Just practice intellectual honesty.

Hi Varthonai! As long as you aren't a horrible bigot I'm pretty sure you'll be just fine. You will miss out on the fine exclusiveness of getting yelled at by Dennis though.

oooo! bunny is a nice choice! very cute; unique; bunny hiding face in paws, suggesting embarrassment (which could be either hiding face in shame or double-facepalm) - nice shaded meaning!

excellent start!

there are actually a whole lot of related things worth getting out the metaphorical tar-and-feathers

like "I hate the effeminate gays because they make us 'normal' gays look bad" -- which is really just another variant of
"your experience with your personal issues is invalid and repugnant because it does not corroborate my own experience"

or
"Futret's music sucks"

there's other examples that could provide some further depth to this profile, of course, but I don't want to put myself through the torture of reminding myself of all of them

Hello folks,
Been a (relative) short time lurker and I though I might as wel register to join in on the occasional spil of oppinions. Not being a registered lurker has led me to learn to doubleread something before forming a reply, so I'll try to keep holding me to it in any following posts.

Hello Timpie, welcome to teh forumzez!

You could always be like me.
I never double-read anything.
I more or less just sort of casually and haphazardly fly through everyone else's posts, and then even more haphazardly write something abysmally stupid, which I then frantically edit over and over again until it meets a threshold of comprehensibility.

Either that, or I don't read the other posts at all, and start posting random silly shit in lieu of an actual reply.

Then again, you are a cat with a hat and a moustache.

And pictures of cute things are always relevant as well.

Hi, here's my cheesy "long time lurker, first time poster" greeting. I don't really know what else to say, but Hi, and I will only be a hateful shrew to the people who deserve it.

I am dumb and posted in the subforum specifically about the comics before posting here.

I am sorry. Sad
