    I'm getting error messages everytime I post and Cloud's response comes before my post. Bizarre!

    this is all very strange, and i don't just mean the gremlins that are messing with this thread. i'd allways thought that i, along with most other newbies are allways very respectfull to the oldbies(not that the amount of time people have been here should make a difference really) anyway, i could just be being paranoid, but i hope i haven't somehow offended you cloud (or anyone else for that matter) so just to be clear, if i'm ever sarcastic or just in a silly postie mood, i never mean to upset or intentionaly annoy anyone.

    And as for heated debates, i've read pretty much every thread since the forum change, and i would say that the debates and arguments over the last few days have been fairly tame compared to some of the older threads.and a few oldbies have mentioned some pretty legendary arguments/debates from the old days too.

    as far as a certain someone being a troll or not, i really wouldn't know but it does seem like the two threads were kind of looking for posters disagreement.
    hmm...hope that wasnt troll food

    THAT is what I'm talking about! It shouldn't. And "newbies" aren't meant to behave anymore than "oldbies" are. Such statements are divisive and absurd! (sorry cloud, but it's true)

    Yeah, i can understand people getting nostalgic, i may be myself one day, but as you said it can sometimes come across as divisive, and the lack of that sort of thing from both the administrator/forum rules and posters is one of the things i like about these forums, as oposed to certain other forum site's which seem to have some sort on-line class divide going on.which is just weird. not to mention certain rules seemingly just for the sake of haveing them! (on other sites) Control freaky admins....whoa! ...and relax;-):-)

    Concerning the error messages: I've noticed that despite the message, the post has usually gone through ok. So if you get one, just go back and refresh the page and see if your post appears. The double post comes from people reposting thinking the error message means they're post wasn't successful.

    As for this thread, I agree that perhaps replying to a 'troll's posts only encourages him, but... isn't it a tad ironic we have a thread to discuss this? No offence meant, I'm finding it all rather entertaining.

    For the sake of this, I have nothing against newbies as I said I made a little list of those I get on well with, just with this board it isnt so big so you make a name for yourself and by trolling and arguing and generally doing everyone head in when you havnt been here that long people are like "oh noes they are back" like with Antieverything I am sure no one is thrilled to see him post.

    I mean 2 year guy you have been here 2 years and arnt new but you are already my enemy and I will be busting your chops whenever I can now.

    Cloud, you're not making it very clear that you're joking. Don't worry the guy, please.

    I don't tend to be on here beyond 11pm at night and maybe I should now to see what you are all up to! I think staying up on the forum past midnight is like given chicken to the mogwai in Gremlins, you all start being really naughty! :P
