With my identity and sense of self worth is so entwined with the forum that the presence of a new person registering and not abiding by some pussy ass introduction rule will send me into a total internet forum meltdown.
And then, earn the badge of shame that allows me to beat my chest about how long I've been a member here, and for some reason only fucking GOD knows......I'll think you really care when I say you're not wanted and don't belong.
And then, I'll garner the respect of a bunch of other "forum long-timers", and will speak on behalf of them, saying the new person is not accepted! HA! The power and respect I'll pull from the fishy chat room internet board.......while in reality, I can become a punk ass, fat, alcoholic, tiny stream trout catching slob of a man, who has no friends outside this forum.
Hell yeah.....then I'll smoke a bowl, kick back and admire myself about what I've become!
Its been noted here that newbies sometimes get a rough treatment. Here is one response, written by Old Dog, that might help those thinking of making their first post understand a little bit about this place. After you read this take a moment (or two or three) and look around and get a sense of this place. If you're still interested make your intro and join the fray. —Jed
