Sooooo..... as someone fairly new to the forum (and someone who is well aware that his words can have a bit of a sting to them - something I often lament).... am I understanding this correctly.... is the forum a bit of a Lord of the Flies routine from time-to-time?

Anyway, I am down with the occasional heated argument... but not too much down with picking on people (mostly because I left middle school a long, long, LONG time ago).

With that, if I ever offend anyone, please, feel free to offer the screen a particular finger and throw out a few obscenities.  Trust me, I won't be offended.  Frankly, sometimes I deserve it... sometimes....
I am not sure what the Lord Of The Flies has to do with this I think I was made to read it a million years ago and don't really remember what it was about. On a personal note I have tried my @ss off to never offend anyone around here but it will and has happened anyway. Perception is a real tough thing to avoid I have learned in this medium especially. Even more so than in real life it seems... :huh: :)

Actually, of all the things you have posted (and there are many I have agreed with, official "like" or not), the final part of your signature is something that still makes me smile.... "There is a 90% chance I am a jerk."    Priceless.  I can totally relate.

That wasn't always there. I had some inspiration recently on that one..... :)

You & me both!  

I also don't understand the thing where people call their friends names and make fun of them.  Sure, I might occasionally give a friend a hard time about something, all in fun, but I"m talking about those who seem to always talk sh*t about those who are supposedly their friends.  Why?  I like saying nice things about people I like.

Here's the thing about my friends (the ones in the real world, not the cyber world).... they know I am opinionated.   But the key there is "opinionated"... opinion... really, that's all any of this is.  Sure, some of us can back our opinions up with more fact, more history, more life experience (translation: us older ones are smarter than those youngins!), but in the end, it's really just opinion.  

For what it's worth... I actually very much so enjoy people... and really enjoy people who love Rush.  So, big picture, I like everyone here.... even Spaghetti Lee... hopefully they like me, too.  But if not.... ummmm.... yeah.... I will lose (counting, formulating... now computing) zero sleep.  It's a fan forum, people!

That said, if I am ever a jerk... call me out on it.... trust me... I am good with it.

God Bless Texas... not our politics, because that is a mess.... but the rest of the state if pretty freaking awesome.  The music scene is top notch.  The hiking and biking scene is that much better.  Pay me a visit in SA, but give me 72 hours to get you out to Big Bend for a hike and a bike.... you won't regret it.

All my relatives are from there including my parents. I have been there many, many times. My parents currently live in Lufkin and my Uncle in Austin. I will be headed down to Lufkin again probably in mid to late October. I really enjoy Texas. I saw quite a few baseball games in the Astrodome way back in the day when my grandparents lived in Houston....

I think it obvious by now that Zumbi doesn't find this sort of criticism funny, he has spoken up about feeling hurt, and all the polls have led to some fun debate and discussion so why all the rudeness?

I really think its a form of bullying, I don't mind being mocked but time and time again Zumbi has made it clearhe has been offended, and to be truly honest he comes across as a lovely guy and a spirited fan.

We tried to be nice to Zumbi and answer his questions, and we told him exactly why people were making fun of him and that he should stop that.  He didn't care and thought everyone else was wrong, so as far as I am concerned he's brought this upon himself.

Well...one cannot argue with this...

Sure one can. On can argue anything. But is one right? Or maybe the other one is?

I thought this used to be a Rush board? I don't visit near as often as I used to, but the board really has gone to shit by attention whores and drama queens.....and most of them haven't been a member for more than a year or two. I think the mods really need to step up and take the bull by the horns but that's just me...

Plus, is there any way we can disable the poll option just for a little while....jeez.
