Wendy's last entry/disclaimer was very good. "We are, after all, human." Gives way to a story.
What the forum is like to you....... hmm, interesting question. Lets call the story:
A jungle and a walk in the park.
Yes, warts and all we're all just human and whether you're on good forum terms or not, this may just make a difference.
It can also depend on good sentence structure, crossing all T's and dotting all I's.
If you don't dip into pedantic or floral speech, then maybe, just maybe you'll have a good day but don't bet on it.
Some days the forum can be a piece of cake and the next day you may get dogged, stomped and trampled pending moderators quick trigger.
Whether you've been bitch slapped or sarcastically skewered, I have a sneaky feeling this too may just have an effect on what the forum means to you.
I almost forgot, be careful and don't raise a doubtful brow in the direction of the big, lumbering, lard ass Kahuna, cause he stay's at bay, hovering, ready for the slightest twitch to chop your head off and gloat.
He not only finds respect/fear amongst the native/cohorts this way but more important it compels some of the natives to shove their nose so far up where the sun don't shine that he forgets they're also fair game.
Aside from the above minor nuances and the tooth snarling, muscle mouthed cannibals who try and mix amongst some very nice natives .......... hell it's a walk in the park.
A Trible rule is don't ever, ever talk about these kind of experiences after the fact or you may be a sniveler or even worse one who engages in recriminations. Heaven forbid!
You see its okay while it's happening because the cannibals are snarling for crowd control and everyone who is amused, gets a good laugh and hey, isn't this what it's all about, just as long as the one being targeted isn't you?
Ultimately you can always just say, "Hey, we're all just human" or what someone else once said: "Quite frankly my dear, I just don't give a damn!"
As far as anonymity, in this village there is no such thing.
The natives and cannibals love to paint pictures on cave walls.
The “colors” used in the pictures they paint, make no mistake, eventually speak loudly of who and what they are “inside” for all to see.
Respectively Rolly, Gringal and Alex were the best!
