@DoctorGotz,
We get a lot of spam at certain times of day and the moderators are engaged in getting rid of it.

It's a good site (I'm biased).

@DoctorGotz,
I think I already welcomed you on another thread, but welcome again!

What can you expect to find? Vitriolic and vituperative verbiage on the one hand and some calm and reasoned discourse on the other. Relentless ranting on a poster's pet peeve (whatever it happens to be) by some and the occasional bon mot and some clever repartee by others. In other words, what you find on any social networking site these days.

This tends to be an older crowd, compared to the typical online demographic of the internet these days. You won't find many teeny-boppers. They tend to disappear after a few posts; too boring for them. Besides, people tend to write complete sentences here and call you on it if you start "texting." That's too much like work.

Just stay off the grass, don't feed the pigeons, observe the 'no smoking' sign when it's lit and you'll have a hell of a good time here.

@Lustig Andrei,
Thanks Lustig.

I can't promise I wont piss anyone off. I know how easy it is to do just that and I probably will, but I don't intend to try to accomplish such a feat.

I'm no spring chicken and so an "older crowd" will be welcome.

I like to think I look at things from all sides. I probably don't do as well a job as I would like, but I try.

So I will probably piss everyone off Smile

@DoctorGotz,
We all do...
that's the way of it if we talk straight.

Time for me to retire to a book, this time one I like.

@DoctorGotz,
Don't worry about pissin' people off and don't take it personal if you do.
Around here you'll always piss somebody off.

The trick is to disengage from those posters who are a black hole of need.

Andy, Whadya mean, "Don't feed the pigeons"? A boid's gonna starve because of your steenkin' rules?

Hey, Dr. Gotz. Feed the pigeons if you want to. And welcome.

@Roberta,
Also, there is the"Never diiscuss your preferences in eating a western style breakfast " with anyone who sounds vaguely Asian. Its a technique that many oriental members use to invoke SATAN. Every so often we have to send in our staff exorcists to render our drives and bytes clean and Satan free.

Other than that, its kinda harmless here.

Never listen to pissed-off Boston Terriers in pink bunny suits.

Wait ....
