This just seems odd...

This is a free thought forum, is it not? Why would anyone seek approval before posting their thoughts? Shouldn't regular feedback to a member be enough to keep inappropriate stuff from becoming a problem?

And...why would DLJ want to read everyone's posts for approval?

Just asking...

Girly doesn't do that, and if he did DLJ would tell him to knock it off lol

(just pointing that out lol)

As always Girly you make me laugh my ass off Smile

Fuck dude, you can't get me to shut the fuck up, good luck trying. No I think the issue isn't the amount of talking per say, it's more what others have said about how it's happening (style, methodology, and some of the language involved) which has brought some negative blow-back. I'm sure it's not intentional on the OP's part and I doubt anyone here is gonna hold a grudge against them over it. Provided they are sincere in making an effort to kinda... chill out a bit Smile

I am new to this forum and I hope to remain.

My initial posts were not meant to be condescending, but I know they came across as such, and I accept that criticism.

I want to be able to express my views in an honest way, a respectful way.

EVEN when I do that, I still expect critical responses if one disagrees with me.

That is fine.

Do yourself and everyone else a favor, before you start a thread do a search to see if one already exists on the topic. You can do this on the white bar just below the TTA banner near the top left of the page.

Okay. Sorry, everyone. I am too much of a newbie to recognize in-house jokes.

Whew...thank goodness a preview isn't required.

Laugh out load GirlyMan, the only troll with positive rep. People, analyze his technique for future reference. It does help to have been here awhile and know how he acts, though.

You did that image thing on purpose, didn't you, DLJ? Facepalm

Is it bad that I already knew he was full of it when he said that?
