6) CORRECT SPELLING AND GRAMMAR: We’re strongly in favor of it. It’s an elementary courtesy to your fellow members to express yourself clearly, lucidly and correctly. If you can’t spell, use a spell-checker. Allowances will of course be made for members who are not native English speakers (who are also welcome to post in their own language).

What's the problem with you fucktard?
We've repeatedly asked you to introduce yourself here and ptfa!
Your brain is missing some cells or you're just slow by nature?

Some people just insist on being rude. Even after such an enthusiastic welcome.
mr. k
elementary courtesy? that you know not much of, apparently.
two words: petty & respect , they are mutually exclusive
i can see some of you haven't learned that yet

Who the fuck you think you are? Kind of 50 cent?

What is the problem with using the bloody shift key? And with introducing yourself?

it's spelled "dumbass", i guess spelling and grammar are really important around here to some people.
i thought it was a forum about absinthe, who knew?
hartsmar
Ok, it's really very simple... Use the shift key, that is a very simple request and something which will make whatever you decide to write atleast a bit more readable.

If you bothered to pay attention to the forum etiquette, you'd notice:

If you had bothered getting to learn the forum a bit more before bitching so damn much you would've known that mthuilli is French. I'm sure he can find a multitude of translations for dumbass in French if you prefer. But you know what? Despite him being French he knows how to use the shift-key - and I've tried using French keyboards, they're a nightmare...

Shift key - then we can start discussing absinthe.

K: it's very often spelled dumass™ over here and you would know if you had ptfa, and it applies perfectly to you.

And an intro, but I guess it's like asking a pig to play banjo.
mr. k
are you guys like the forum etiquette police or something? i've posted on many a forum, never using caps unless abso necessary and never been a problem.
i'm not going to start now so some whiney babies get their emotional needs met; and i think i've introduced myself by now, in case you didn't get it, i'm the guy who likes absinthe, doesn't play well with assholes and enjoys long walks on the beach.
carry on

This isn't other forums.

For the benefit of Mr. K there will be a show today on etiquette.

There are rules. Follow them.

Tibro
Shabba, your input is needed. You respond to rulez so well.

I seem to get bashed over here all the time for ideas that are divergent from the chosen few's.

But I still respect and follow the rules here as well. As do you.

Hey, I got an idea:

Let's move the pointlessly controversial part of this thread to a secret elite members' section of the forum.

Happy-happy joy-joy, I close my eyes to the darkness.









Hey…why is it still dark when I close my eyes?
Doctor Love

mr. k, believe me I can understand how the place seems a bit bizarre. Let me try to explain from the point of view of someone who is also relatively new.

Fee Verte is a fairly old community, and seems to be chock full of contradictions that you either have to accept or they'll eventually drive you nuts. Or they may drive you nuts anyway and you just have to appreciate being driven nuts. For example, many of the folks here are free-spoken and often rowdy, after all absinthe was the drink of common French folk, not hoite toite nobles. But while expressing yourself freely and in occasionally rowdy manners, make sure your spelling and grammar are sharper than that of a well tutored Tudor. It's a bawdy sausage of the least used pig pieces served on a silver platter and linen doily. The local laws, unofficial yet aggressively enforced by various members of the old time gang, are often not equally applied or even particularly fair, so don't expect them to be.

The forum is a band of not-particularly-merry maniacs who would both be the ones creating Frankenstein's monster as well as the ones with torches and pitchforks demanding the destruction of it. They are very knowledgeable on the finer points of absinthe, but tend to deliver it with either the dart of a blow-gun or an artillery shell; one is just a needle with info as the poison, the other is a bombast of explanation that peppers you with shrapnel. Many have the knowledge needed to make the most delicious absinthe you'd ever tasted, and yet also the ire to tell you what an undeserving sonofabitch you are while you drink it.

I don't claim to understand the place yet, but it is a dynamic group.

No, but you could start now, so that you pay some respect to the etiquette of the forum you seem to be willing to be part of.

Glad you could join the party, Rimmy. I've had that title listed since before the Marteau thread was closed.

DL, that's the tip of the iceberg you're seeing here and that's maybe how most of the newbies are seeing us too, I don't know.
But once you've been adopted by the core crew here, you quickly discover the part of the iceberg under water. Ok it can take a while for some, or a few days for others, but it's worth every minute spent here.
The FV community is the greatest community I've ever seen (and met for a dozen of them) in any online forum.
It took me a while too at the beginning, I've been through several tough discussions, but now I can't leave it anymore.
Believe me, most of the fuckers here are full of kindness, and absinthe knowledge of course.

Rimmy, Shabba, please stop the cockfight, it's getting boring now.
May I suggest that you ignore each other and move on?
I know it won't be easy but it would make the topics more readable. And we could concentrate on the fucktard wink.gif
Thank you and have a great peaceful week-end with Madame La Verte.

That was more than a sweep. That was an all out raping and pillaging. And Harden got his first win. The man is made of glass, but boy can he pitch.

He's brilliant. I'm still most impressed by Dempster this season.

Wow! 43 posts about a shift key, spelling, douche bags, assholes, forum rules, etiquette and last but not least absinthe.
All ingredients you need to run a forum like this.

That depends on what your definition of "is" is.

Yeah, what a shocker. When they converted him I really was questioning that move, I thought they had gone insane, based on what a mediocre closer he was, but he has really risen to the occasion. What's great is his K/9 ratio hasn't decreased at all, in fact it has increased, indicating that he isn't having arm fatigue, which is usually the case when you go from the pen to a starting role.

When your rotation is Zambrano, Harden, Dempster and Lilly (Marquis gets no honorable mention, I still hate the guy and I can guarantee they will go to a 4-man rotation in the playoffs), that is a fantastic position to be in.
