If I see somebody being an asshole to anybody, anywhere, he's off my screen, permanently. Is he an incredible artist, somebody with a million great stories, a rich storehouse of information, something like that? I don't care. I'll get by without those stories, or information, or art, and if I can't, so what? What's Burning Man good for, if it stops being fun?
you'll have lots of fun around here when you can only see your own posts ...
Really? That's how you see the board? As being entirely populated by assholes who can only stay in character, pretending to be real human beings, for so long? I'm guessing that you're wrong, but if not, then yes, I'll certainly be happier looking at a blank screen than at the ramblings of people like that. Who wouldn't be?
Aside from people like that, of course.

Oh, when you ask so nicely, how can I say no ...
But really, you're just making my point for me so well, that I'm losing any doubts I might have had. Watching you attack DVD on the flimsy pretext you did, a short while ago, my first thought was "this is gratuitous, so plonk her", but I held off, wondering if I was being too hasty. Obviously, I was not, and that's why the rule makes sense.
Being the way you're being right now isn't something that people just stumble into, it's basically who somebody like you is and always will be, because such people don't have the potential to be anything else.
