I’m not generally a ‘flamer’, complainer, or someone who enjoys reading same, so I don’t hang out much in the Pit. However, when someone suggested that I check out pittings of a particular poster, I noticed that he (using the masculine for the sake of convenience,) was being enthusiastically mocked in a later pit thread for neglecting to show up the first time he was pitted.
I don’t really expect to get pitted anytime soon, but I know that I can get on people’s nerves sometimes. So I guess my question is, is there an expectation that everyone should be checking the pit regularly to see if they’ve been called out by someone else, and if so, what’s an appropriate frequency for making such checks??
On a side note, when I searched the pit for my username, the only reference I could find was well before I joined the board, and I couldn’t exactly see who was being replied to… [checks the pit again.] Ohh, whoops, I totally misunderstood. the OP wasn’t calling someone else on the thread chrisk, but using it as a name to refer to her son by. That’s… actually kinda cool!!
Okay, self-hijack over. Any answers on the pit check thing??
