:toilet:
I was really enjoying this thread just becoming a place where people share stories, anecdotes, and quotes from the life of CTR instead of their judgements. If Greentara had a coherent opinion that actually made me think twice, I'd be more worried about proving her wrong.

Otherwise, I'll request nobody gets reprimanded for "not having balls" to do things. It's sexist and super rude.

By any definition, though, Greentara, your out of context quotes did amount to a classically passive/aggressive was of getting your opinions out there. In the future, feel free to just say what you mean and please, for the love of simplicity, make sure you mean what you say.

This is a general warning to all: no more ad hominem replies, or this thread will be locked. You may disagree with someone's conduct, agenda, etc. and if they break the TOS then you can report their post. But don't resort to ad homs or bickering.

Please be reminded of catmoon's quote re: Enlightened Discussion that is now an addendum to our TOS:

In an enlightened discussion, it is never acceptable to comment on your discussion partner in anything other than glowing, admiring terms, no matter what he says, whether or not he insults you, belittles you, swears at you, curses your lineage and guru, or consigns you and all your progeny for seventy generations to the lowest tiers of the nastiest hells. It's just not allowed in civil conversation.

I am well aware of my idiocy. I am also very aware that you too are an idiot. Therein lies our mutuality.
