    South Carolina is alright. I mean, sure the summers are stupidly hot and humid, we do get to spot Florida man sometimes, we do have big alligators that eat 300 pound deer and have cloaking devices on them, and we love our guns way too much. But, aside from all that, we all love our state. There are plenty of furs around the state if you know how to find them.

    Is modifying words inside a quote box against the rules? It usually is, on other forums. At the very least it's immature and somewhat unethical.

    Only if you try to misattribute words or mislead.

    You are very obviously doing that.

    No, I am not.
    I certainly do not intend it.

    I think that perhaps you should find yourself a dictionary and look up the word 'satire'
    before you can embarrass yourself much further.

    Interesting addition you added there. Apparently the post wasn't barbed enough, so you added extra material to add snark. This is characteristic trolling behavior. To refrain from being considered a troll, you'd be advised to refrain from person barbs, insults, and instead focus more on the conversation in a mature fashion.

    Satire is fine in small doses. When it becomes the dominant form on communication, however, it stifles the conversation in layers of confusing rhetoric that people then have to ask, do you mean this, or what do you mean? This is done because you're either not being clear in what you say, or because the conversation is aided by you providing clearer, more sophisticated arguments. Satire tends to bog down an argument and cause tension, whereas making sense and speaking clearly does not.

    Well. Clearly,

    "bogged" one
    present.

    Can we just remove this thread and get over it? Seriously. This has gone too fucking far.
    I'm tired of all the smart ones trying to push against one ignorant idiot, who's legitimately the most obvious troll here, and he's DEFINITELY not doing a good job of covering it up.

    Oh come on, now.

    My threads are some of the most interesting threads here.
    What else has anyone got to do?
    Interesting reads are like water in a desert, don't'cha know?

    Real conversations in a sea of noise are always interesting, aren't they?

    I just want people to try to be nice to each other, first.
    By overreacting, I'm creating a 'price tag' for the bad behavior
    and eventually you may decide it's better just to be good
    rather than face me. :p Hey, beware. I appear to be a hare, and not a rabbit, after all. *twitches ears*

    It's all about the storytelling in the end.
    Isn't that why we're here, around this fire.
    What's your story, then?

    Welp, I predict two people are going to block each other.

    You guys should do what I do to alleviate stress, look at adorable pictures of kittens and such. In fact:

    Kittens!!!

    One key to understanding me is that I'm ideologically opposed to using "block."

    If someone needs to be blocked,

    then they
    should have
    to answer to the community
    or leave.

    Obviously.

    Akartoshi you have been booped by the web potater foxxo

    At first, I had no idea who the fuck we were discussing, so I logged out. Apparently, the user had blocked me, but I have never ever even seen him/her/it (probably the last) around, so I have no idea why I was blocked. Maybe Eevee's are a sign of bullying or some shit. oh well xD

    Here is proof of him blocking me, despite him talking about how he is opposed to blocking:
    [​IMG]

    That was really confusing for me though. I thought you were yelling at yourselves!

    P.S. Since this user has blocked me, I am unable to report it. For the love of god, someone put an end to this attention seeking troll!
    I'm not doing this to try and avoid a block, I genuinely thought the site glitched, so I logged out and planned to log back in and hope it worked, but I then noticed his posts.

    Because, you can't say things like that in polite company and not expect to be called out on it. It'd be like me suggesting that you should "stop fucking your mom." It's completely degrading, and as such, it has no place here in this positive community. This shouldn't even require an explanation. It's just trashy disparaging behavior on your part, and, here's the hint-- it's not me that you're disparaging. It's your own character, which you are defining before us all.

    But I will promise to leave you alone if you also don't go looking to start any crap,
    because,
    I believe I've demonstrated
    that I can deliver ten times your intensity here
    with one hand strapped behind my back.
