Remember all those times we said, "hey, why don't you take that outside?" Well, here's where you go. <g>

No, really. This is where you go for all those verbal fistfights. When a thread veers from debate and/or discussion into personal attack, sneering insults, and "Yo Mommas," y'all should step outside to this thread.

Remember, although AOL's Terms of Service do not usually apply and we will give you SOME latitude, this is no back alley and you will be expected to be if not civil at least semi-reasonable. Pure evil and/or rants won't fly -- unless they're really entertaining.

Oh, and give me five minutes to sell some tickets, okay?

Ah, but what about those of us unhindered by AOL and its Terms Of Servitude? <g> Far as I know, my provider doesn't much care what I do as long as I don't jam up a server. But, I'll be good. Unless those in power would like me to be bad.

Well, I don't HAVE TO but sometimes it makes sense to. When quoting a source that has profanity, or when discussing something which refers to profanity, or sometimes the situation just calls for it.

If anybody thinks it's necessary to use any curse words or not doesn't make a difference to me, but that doesn't mean that EVERY post has to have cursing it in... it's all a matter of context.

What the hell do you mean by that?

Okay, just being funny, really. (I originally wrote "what the fuck do you mean by that," but that's a bit much, don't you think?)

DISCLAIMER: NO FEELINGS WERE INJURED IN PRODUCTION OF THE LINES ABOVE. IT'S A JOKE GODDAMMIT.

All things in moderation . . . all in perspective . . . what's appropriate for the situation?

We're adults here (mostly), we have command of the English language, what's suitable?

yay! I think I will spend most of my time here in the BBQ Pit, at least until George and Bob take over.

In addition to the "Bodily Functions" folder, we need a "Teenage Heartbreak and Angst" folder, so I can avoid that, too.

I'm not sure why Bob hasn't made it since he's only fighting with George, daily, and Rhyannann about one post every two days. George on the other hand has six separate threads devoted to enlightening or overwhelming Bob and Jwb (along with anyone else who trips into the melee). He is also making guest appearnces in other threads. He'll probably be over later--or when they pull the SDMB out from under him.

Absolutely! No disrespect meant to our resident teens since they are collectively and singly amazingly wonderful as far as teens go, but really, I've been through high school already and I have no desire to repeat the experience. Especially all the who kissed whom and why they did so speculation.

Actually I don't really expect George to come here, or if he does, to stay long. The comparative difficulty of C&Ping are going to raise havoc with his usual deconstructionist style of replying to posts.

I really doubt that. Quoting with brackets is just as easy here as it was there.

'beep' 'bleep' go the captions on the Jerry Springer show. One of the few shows they don't hide a person's lips when they swear.

Maybe you could fuzz out the fingers of people swearing here?
Can't you see the topic has shifted? Geez, stay off topic here!

well, I already flamed the poor child but this does mean you should avoid Lanna's personal thread.

What do you have against Lanna? She's not doing anything else wrong aside from making a second thread about herself.

No, that would be the "About this Message Board" folder. Look at the bottom for the "Hop To" window and button. There you go.

How many threads about herself does she need? I would think one would really be sufficient. See, this is an example the general narcissism of youth; you've started one thread about yourself, and that's one more than anybody really needs. If you're going to start another each time an event happens to you, people will begin staying away in droves, because they simply don't want to wade through it.

As far as I know, Lanna has never contributed a meaningful, correct answer to the AOLSDMB. For that matter, I'm not sure that she's ever given an answer to any question. While the interaction between people on the SDMB is part of its charm, the original and main purpose of this site is to stomp out ignorance. Lanna seems to use this place as a diary. While occasionally Lanna has made a post which sparks a genuine discussion, for the most part her posts would be better off kept in a diary. A LOCKED, PRIVATE diary. That she doesn't share, except to her best friend. I am not alone in this opinion, when I closed Lanna's second thread I got over a dozen emails thanking me.

Hey Lynn you know you had my thanks. I'm sure she is a wonderful young lady but I did my time listening to the harrowing lives of teens. I came here for the grown ups.

Then again, maybe I don't hate said person after all, since it appears he was told about it only to be immediately twit-filtered out.

Well, actually no. Since this is a whole new ballgame here, everyone starts with a fresh slate and so far, no one has been twit filtered out. And no one will based only on their actions on the SDMB. If John behaves here, he's welcome. If not, he get what I believe will come to be known as "The Blando Treatment."

That's a fair way to do it -- if he sticks around, I have no doubt he'll be banished 'ere long. =:0
