Discussion in 'Drama Llama Holding Pen' started by Lum, Nov 26, 2012.
Anyway, my penance for inflicting such:
There are significantly worse con stories, what are you talking about?
Don't you know about the crazy bitch that stabbed the wheelchair-bound girl in the leg with a fork because she was affectionate towards her own boyfriend?
no, if we are going down this road, we are going to fucking speed down with wild abandon
I POSTED PRETTY MUSIC
You ruined my evening,
Lum. Gonna have to drink this memory into oblivion now. I'll send you a receipt of the booze I bought to do so -- you can reimburse me at your convenience.
it's too late
there's no turning back now
It's okay, I forgive you.
Your icon is fatbird. I should have expected no less than absolutely scarring links.
I'm sorry I made this happen, so here's a picture of a bunny with a pancake on its head. Cheer up!
it's fatbird with a hat
festive, you see
Where we're going, we don't need roads.
...booze, on the other hand...
Festivities cannot heal my soul now.
I learned something new today.
I guess it's better to know about this sort of thing if I ever decide to go to a con?
I wouldn't want to feel too shocked if people ask if they can grope my cap.
Aren't you an Aminita, though? I would think groping your cap would be... unwise.
You could wear a "please do not touch my cap" button.
(by the way one of the fallouts from this was that I was profoundly disappointed in John Scalzi for not realizing how incredibly sleazy this was)
There are all kinds of folks out there.
I think this Open Source Boob Project is a clear example.
I am so pleased by the direction this topic went in.
Because, you see, this is what happens in the LP forum. You guys are doing it yourselves.
Even in a topic about the LP forum going off the rails, the topic will go off the rails.
I'm getting likes out of it, so it's all good.
I'm going to guess that all of the people involved with that Open Source Boobs thing, either directly or via the indirect route of not understanding its negative implications, are die hard Heinlein fans.
The free hand of the market works the nipple.
NEBTY I WANT TO STOP SCREAMING
YOU ARE NOT MAKING THAT A POSSIBLE THING
It's Lum's gift that keeps on giving. Ho ho ho.
HO HO HO
okay lum, so your new icon.
i can't tell that the fluff is on the hat, so it looks like fatbird just kinda got a fro going on for christmas.
a mohawk afro.
look in the lower right corner
(although fatbird is cool with a mohawk afro too)
Now I feel like I should dig up that thread on RPG.net about the guy who wore adult diapers to the RPG tables at Gencon...
Hey, don't make it weird.
I really want to believe that the link is a joke, but the other replies to it seems to make it not the case.
One question, this being the second post I've made outside the LP subforum (the first one being in the newly created subforum); is it really possible to integrate with the rest of the forum if you are not very eloquent?
I've been reading quite a bit of the other subforums, and what strikes me the most is how well-worded and articulate most people are in their replies - and I know that I could never match that, which is not even including the fact that I usually do not have anything worthwhile to say.
I guess I could simplify it to: When are you good enough to post?
When you're willing to fully type out words.
As long as there's no "u" or "ur" going on, I think you're fine.
That is just the style of the message though, but what about the content? If I needed to feel that my posts where worthwhile, I don't think I could post anything ever.
...have you seen some of the posts I've typed that have gotten likes?
Don't worry about it so much, man. THESE GUYS AREN'T WORTH THE STRESS.
but i still love all of them i promise <3
Just do your best to be literate and considerate toward the audience. BrettMCD shitposts all the time, and that never stopped him, so don't be so hard on yourself.
My posts are usually blissfully free of content, and I haven't been chased out of the forum by a torches- and pitchforks-wielding* mob yet. Take that as you will.
*Just don't mention bardiches, they'll get ideas.
It just seems so incredibly hard to match the level that is generally present in most places here. I can appreciate reading the insightful things that people write here, but I can't really comprehend how they are actually able to.
As for literacy, well, I never was very good at that. (And I can be envious of people who have an actually useful language, like English, as their mother tongue)
You're already writing better English than 90% of the US population -- and waaaaaay better than probably 99%+ of us native English speakers could do at whatever your native language is.
Yes, please relax and you'll be fine. As far as I can see, you LP regulars are just about the nicest people. I can't imagine that there's nothing in your head worth reading, even if it's only your opinion on the Walking Dead or the truly important issue of our time (hint: cake is better). Welcome.
Yeah, definitely. It kills me how the people who are concerned that their posts aren't well-written enough are always self-conscious non-native English speakers who a) write very well and b) would not be known to not be native English speakers if they hadn't brought it up themselves. They're never, ever the problem. The problem is always people whose posts read like text messages written by a twelve year old in 1998, and those are also the people who insist that there's nothing wrong with the way they write.
While that's good for me to hear, if true, it does make me consider just how it is going in the US.
Thank you, it's good to hear that I need to be as afraid as I tend to be. Still, I can have trouble even when I do feel that I have something to add; usually because I'm sure that someone else who's better at explaining themselves will be around shortly and do a better job of making my point.
That happens to me all the time, but it doesn't stop me from posting. :)
Cease this insidious propaganda at once! Your side has already lost!
