If by "code" you mean the BB Code, I have no complaints. It does everything I need it to do.
If you mean the in jokes and subtle subtext... nah, I mostly like those, even when I'm bewildered by them. (And that's what the archives are for).

TPBM can usually tell who's snarking in fun, who's snarking in annoyance, and who just genuinely dislikes someone.

No. My prowess at social nuance is nothing to brag about.
TPBM thinks that I just always show off my vocabulary instead.

Well, yes, you certainly do that.
They don't need to be mutually exclusive, though.

TPBM has so much prowess, they're practically a figurehead.

A prowess is a female prow, after all.

Sounds Shakespearean...
But what is a knitted prow? Is it related to a knitted brow?

TPBM thinks I should wave the white flag now, before it's too late.

No I never have in fact. I am having a hard time getting through books these days. I don't even have one in progress and that is really strange. Time to head over to the library.

tpbm has found an author new to them, with a huge body of work they can dig into like a batch of cookies.

Multiple things. Innsbruck/Seefeld. The idea that I could be renowned. The truth.
Although, my three biggest losses I do not look for. Those are lost for good.
TPBM worries about those "ears cut short."

No. I deeply hated artificially-strawberry-flavoured things as a kid. I refused to eat strawberry ice cream until I was in my 20s (at which point, I went through a phase where I couldn't get enough of it. Weird).

TPBM thinks lemongrass would be a nice milkshake flavour.

No. I am peterbed enough by the bizarre ice cream places with black pepper flavoring popping up in my area that I don't want California Cusine Milkshakes in the mix.
TPBM is going to study this menu for a while because I have no credibility and s/he wants to be certain...

After having tried wasabi ice cream and soba noodle-flavored soft serve, black pepper doesn't seem so much of a stretch.

TPBM once painted their bedroom walls black.
When he lights his streetlamp, it is as if he brought one more star to life, or one flower.
When he puts out his lamp, he sends the flower, or the star, to sleep.
That is a beautiful occupation.

Not in a long, long time. They are wonderful, but oily moop-like.
TPBM tried a new cocktail this week.

Did I...?
No, I don't think so. I have tried a few in the past month, but not this week.

TPBM has a beloved white garment that is no longer white, and s/he is contemplating dying it.

Not bloody likely. I'm one of those people (sometimes known as "slobs") who cannot keep a garment white. But I don't like white to begin with. Saturated colors (although I do accept--and love--secondary colors, unlike Sailman), shading into each other perhaps. I bought a white shirt with some "atomic energy" set graphics for 2010, and this year I have two more white shirts, but they will never been white after the first wearing--and it doesn't matter that I'm saving them for the playa. If I wore them today they would get all stained.
Insert joke here. Because we know I don't stand for anything...
TPBM wonders what it is that I do that stains my laundry so much.

If it's any way like the way I stain my clothes, Well, I'll send you a gigantic bib like the one I have!!

I'm wondering if TPBM has any good laundry tips to get rid of stains.
