Oops. Sorry bro. My fingers are faster than my brain sometimes. Kinda like typing "teh" instead of "the". I do it constantly.

Haha, no worries. S'cool.

(though, I and I does it on purpose, because his mental age is 6)

Yes, but it's not like it was orthogonally polarised...

Also: cjlr's.

Never apologize for a physics joke. Physics is the final frontier of humour.

So many cats, so few good recipes.

Already done. Wink

Meh.

I don't think anyone (sane) would misunderstand the previous wording.

RE: Rule 5 is officially up
Well, you already know my opinion of how rules can have unintended consequences and result in painting yourself into a corner. The wording here is no different.

Maliciously Disrupting the Forum is Prohibited
Anyone who comes here with the sole intent of causing chaos and conflict is not welcome. Being intentionally overly disruptive is also not acceptable. ...

Your claim is that we need rules to objectively determine enforcement. Okay. How the hell you gonna objectively infer intent or maliciousness? You can't. And how 'bout objectively determining overly?

Disrupting the Forum is Prohibited
Anyone causing chaos and conflict which disrupts the forum is not welcome. If after an initial warning there is no change in behavior they'll be banned.

There I fixed it for you. Now you're not painted into a corner. You know an even more concise way of covering not only disruptive behavior but any behavior you may find objectionable in the future. Yeah that's right, "Don't be a dick." Tongue

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

RE: Rule 5 is officially up
I don't like this idea of "don't be a dick". I'm a bit of a dick. Sometimes I'm even a bit of a knob, but you know what I'm not?
A cunt.



Okay, I'm a cunt sometimes, but lets not judge.

Yeah, that.

Time to let go of the unattainable idea of objective rules. Girly's re-wording is appropriate.

"If, in the opinion of the Forum Team, you are causing trouble, you will be warned. If your behavior does not improve, you will be banned,"

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

Tiny bit of a dick is called a clit. Clits are welcome here. Big Grin

I like this. Short, clear to anyone, to the point.

You deserve a clap for that one.
