A psychologist at the University of Texas at Austin told Scientific American that "these days, online comments are 'extraordinarily aggressive, without resolving anything.'" And a study of forcing users to employ their real names doesn't decrease the amount of bad behavior they perform that much, either.

Why don't you just cut letters out of a magazine, glue them onto a piece of paper and fax it to topix, it would probably look more sane than this mess Ü

You talk about a sense of humor but you can't laugh at yourself. You and bambi are good for each other. LMSO

Did you see the link that was posted yesterday where he was fishing for a sheman date? It was on Satan's thread. LMSO

I was recently sent a link to your tearfest about losing an account. I wanted to give you a bit of information for future reference. If you end it in "ah" as opposed to "er" I believe it becomes less offensive. You're welcome. LMSO

Still jealous of sweet clowns, I see...

Did Drinkie slap you around with some good old fashioned lampooning and break your spirit?

Looks like the answer is yes.

I don't believe for a second that you were "just" sent that, you're a sock, and like everyone else on here you are obsessed with DeVille, and why not, she was the most original character on here. BTW, that was a private conversation, they are always embarrassing when posted on a forum

I never even mention or gloat over banned accounts, I hate to see that grey and empty page, every now and then I will come across TSsmelliot who said she banned herself and yet it pains me to see that "page not found", juxtapose that with the night DeVille went out. Sniper, natasfonos and their denver cronies acted as if Bin Laden had gone down. They were literally saying they "couldn't click on her profile enough" and "what a great day this was" HA HA

Icno wrote a huge dissertation about how she had followed me around, documented my posts with top mod, so proud of what genius she is, telling me how methodical she was, so dumm. The only one that should be banned is nat, that's an illegal account, he doesn't play by the same rules that the rest of us do.

I never said I was just sent a link. I said recently. I believe it was a week ago. Is that not recently in your book? You are talking about my obsession with DeVille and I have no clue why you would even bring that up. I figured you were smart enough to know when I mentioned "ah" and "er" you would know I was talking about your sock that was no doubt banned for racial insensitivity. My apologies for overestimating you. Get your mind off table dances and concentrate. As I said before you can't even laugh at yourself. LMSO

Wow, you are a convoluted mess, how could I possibly follow that, you are talking about DeVille, then throw out "ah" and "er"??

You're really butt hurt bout those tale dances aren't you mr. moralistic, you won one, good for you,
Or is it that word "racial" Ü
