"Revenge is sweet and not fattening."
"These are bagpipes. I understand the inventor of the bagpipes was inspired when he saw a man carrying an indignant, asthmatic pig under his arm. Unfortunately, the man-made sound never equalled the purity of the sound achieved by the pig."
"Always make the audience suffer as much as possible."

You've left a third category out. There is a large contingent of cave divers who don't want the community (or individuals within the community) to sit idly quiet, but would like them to make their points factually and respectfully. Why do you leave this large group of concerned cave divers out of the picture all the the time?
I decided that I needed a redundant glowstick --Mark Schroder
I still don't know why they asked me to be in this commercial.
Whoever said money can't buy love never bought a puppy.
I have a sword. I've named it "Kindness." I'm going to kill people with it.
Anybody can be calm and centered with a few candles, some incense, quiet peaceful surroundings...the trick in life is to clear your head and find that calm spot in a *poo*storm...to filter out distractions in a beehive world and focus on simple, true things. - Bob Bates

I'm always civil on the CDF 'cause I'm skeered of Shirley!
civility? I've posted this before, I think. I grew up in the midwest, the northwest and the northcentral. In some places rudeness was the norm, not seen as rude. four letter words serve as comma's, periods, and even question marks. so nearly every sentence ends with at least one. It's not just language, but connotation too. As you get reamed out and begin to feel faint, you realize the guy is not angry or hostile or violent, but friendly. On the internet we all come from everywhere there is to come from and what we do at home is what we tend to do on the forums. Then, after awhile, the forum takes over and alters your ego, transforms your personality, generates an alternate version or versions... hmm. shirley may be a canary in this mine.
