You can always just IM most of these former forum-goers. It isn't like they just disappear.

I don't think he visits these forums any longer.
Also, how do you people not know how default page numbering works yet?
Still more likely than any dragon.
I get that it's read-only mode, but why can't I read my messages?
Eh, I think you'd much rather be a normal person that's socially incompetent. It's much easier to overcome a deficit of...
In my experience it's usually a slur aimed at Jewish people...
Well, what you describe is a common effect of autism. However, most people who bitch about it end up far overstating its severity taken in comparison to those cases actually involving a developmental...
Phobias like that are usually treated with exposure therapy. Just taking some time to study ants and other insects online would probably do you some good.
Also if you want to stop ants you really...

Never assume this. Ever.

I'm calling bullshit on this. All that matters is if you've been institutionalized or found incompetent. Otherwise your medical records don't even enter into it.
Are you talking about the US? The only things here that can stop you from owning a gun are a criminal record or having been at some point institutionalized or adjudicated as mentally incompetent.
Wow. This isn't locked? I vote we post awesome pictures of the sun.
I find this thread tends to reaffirm my tendency towards never complimenting or remarking on appearance lest it inevitably be misinterpreted.
Even if that is the case, unless the person goes further then it's still a compliment with no harm done. To alter the example a bit, can you imagine the same kind of response in the cases of a woman...
I still don't get the aversion to simply having gay guys say you are attractive. I mean, a compliment is a compliment. It just sounds like some silly masculinity hang-up.
