Dude. Relax. It's not like this is real or anything. And if you can't

spew hate at your fellow SubGenii without fearing to be misunderstood, at

whom can you unleash you?

Popular. Did you hear that? That's a new one for me.

Funny, I didn't hear anything about this. Are you sure? People don't

usually get killfiled quite that easily around here.

Yeah, but he'll steal their hidden treasure during the retreat. (Not that

I'm advocating *you* do this, mind. You couldn't even imagine what my

treasure is anyway, let alone where.)

You can do this if you want to. But if you change your behavior because

of what others think about you, or because you're afraid of offending

someone, you're falling into one of the Con's oldest traps. Consider it.

If you really do change, I for one will probably have *less* respect for

you.

 

> Well to all those toes I've stepped on I apologize.

 

Why apologize? Do you think what you said was wrong? Did I change your

mind, your attitude, or your views of women? Are you apologizing for

having _offended_ people around here? Are you sure you lurked?

That excuse doesn't work around here. Uh, sorry, I'm not normal. I'm a

SubGenius. My brain is different from most peoples. Have you noticed the

people posting here? And you think _you're_ not right in the head?

Hey, no problem. I thought of something the other day, by the way. You

know those chicks you sleep with? The fat friends of your friends that

you settle for?

 

Chances are, they're settling for you too.

 

Feels good, doesn't it?
