You say this in past tense. Does this mean you have given up on the en-devour?You put that very well...I was trying to write a paper on this kind of stuff for school...(trying to be "original"?) and it's not easy...
You mentioned an "average forum"
This is probably as far as you can get from anything even closely resembling an average forum.
We have an extremist here like no other. Our resident HAC puts all others to shame.
I enjoy poking sticks at it and pointing out its flaws. It refuses to divulge its gender, it says it is none of my business, thus I refer to it as, usually, HAC or, more simply, it.
99.9% of its posts can be scanned for words in all caps to know what it has copied and pasted for the umpteenth time, I can't tell you honestly the last time was I actually read an entire ranting from it.
To be blunt, I enjoy fucking with extremists that believe their way is the only way!
