...insulting - there are very few people on here (new or otherwise) who I'd want to really insult... and you know which two people I trash the most? Hov and poolboy - none of it's serious (at least I hope not) - we just do it to pass the time while being stuck in work/college. Check in here any time from about 9 - 4:30 on a weekday - there'll probably be a few threads with just us three blazing each other.
Just keep remembering that it is a web-board - people don't really come here to have in-depth conversations about physics (I didn't see your post about gravity, so I can't comment on it - sorry) they just come here for a little light conversation, maybe answering a couple of questions, doing a few polls, engage in a little trash-talking with those two damned dirty bastards Hov & poolboy and find out what's the latest goings-on in the V-A world.
: A while ago, I posted my ideas on gravity, thinking that there would be someone here who knew about this and I could have a half-interesting conversation. But to my surprise, I log on, and what do I get? A bunch of "you're an idiot" messages.
: This has happened several times before, not only on my topics, obviously, but on everyone else's. There's no need to get personal when arguing on a net board. You people have got to learn to take this thing less personally. The poster is showing his opinions and you're free to agree with them or not, and to argue with them or not, but a lot of you people just FEEL the need to deliver a verbal (verbal? written? It's the internet) trashing to whoever expresses ideas which you disagree with.
: Now, it made sense on the other boards I've been where the average ages where around 16- 18, but on a board like this where most of the posters are in their twenties it's really unorthodox. A lot of you people are doing a good job at coming across as immature little fuckers, but I don't necessarily have to post about it. That's just a lack of respect.
: Hi. My name is John. I'm 24 years old. How you guys doing?
: And on that note, we cue all the witty "You're an asshole NT" replies...
