    Posted: 24-Aug-2007 at 11:20
I have a few problems with the suggestions:

I stand adamantly against learning anything, especially from others. I also do not wish to educate others, as that would detract from my ability to humiliate them via a series of vitriolic, unsourced personal attacks. Furthermore, I refuse to take responsibility for my statements; let everyone else take responsibility for theirs! And by the way, if I have a problem with other forumers, I plan on complaining loudly in a series of completely unrelated threads about how the moderators are shirking their responsibilities by not immediately banning my rivals.

Why would I read the posts of others when I have all the answers myself? Let other people go through the arduous process of keeping up with topics they wish to comment on; I shall post whatever I feel like, whenever I feel like it. If I raise an issue that has already been thoroughly addressed in the thread, surely that issue has been given renewed significance by virtue of the fact that I, Akolouthos, have deigned it worthy of my notice; after all, I'm bad to the bone--as I shall prove through a series of increasingly hateful ad hominem attacks. And don't you tell me to "keep my cool"; I'LL TELL YOU WHEN TO KEEP YOUR COOL, BECAUSE I'M ALL THAT AND A BAG OF CHIPS!

Why should I provide facts for what is so plainly obvious to see? I am the sole factual authority to which any of you need appeal in your discourses. I alone possess the right to determine what is historically credible and what is pure fantasy. Sources are for the weak, and if you @%!$ing morons don't realize it, I certainly can't be bothered to help you. After all, being the best takes a lot out of a guy, and, as we all know, mixed-ethnicity citizens of the USA are the best by virtue of their ancient traditions and countless contributions to civilization over the past several thousand years.

I also find myself incapable of respecting the mods. Honestly, do they expect respect simply because they have volunteered to spend hours online, without pay, sifting through thousands of posts in a misguided effort to further intelligent discussion? What is the purpose of this nonsense? Undoubtedly it is part of an evil conspiracy to make us all have fun.

10 Wise Pieces Of Advice Before You Start Posting

1) Read, Learn, Post, Educate - This motto is a revolving door. After you read something then post what you've learned. You will be educating numerous people. Even yourself.
 
2) You are responsible for what you post. That's right. You! Don't worry about your neighbors so much. They are in the same boat as you are. Everyone get's to own up to everyone else. Group awareness is a wonderful thing. Also, if you happen to run into something you don't like you could always PM your friendly neighborhood Moderator and Administrator. They are wonderful problem solvers.
 
3) Do you want to be great at debates? Well we have the secret written down right here for you. Try reading as many posts in a thread as you can. Then put on your critics hat and focus your attention on your target. Be clear, gentle or stern and you might get lucky. Either way once you make your point you are on your way to an educational experience. So enjoy it! Once you happen to criticize another's post try to avoid Ad Hominem attacks (targeting or appealing to another person and not their works). Plus the best way to show you are in control is to keep your cool. Instead of trading barbs try sharing an educated opinion. We like cool educators.
 
4) I'm all that! No you are not. You ain't that cool. Don't let your ego get the best of you, even if you think you've just written the perfect post. Well, we've got news for you. It could be topped. There is always someone with something bright to say. Appreciate that fact and you'll go a long way.
 
5) That's a fact Jack. When you use your own strengths and your talented gift of gab we just might believe you. Especially after you provide good sources in your arguement. One word of caution: Don't be so sure of yourself.
 
6) I'm bad to the bone. Rude antics, poor attitude and a potty mouth will get you the kind of attention you really don't want. So keep your chin up and your head on your shoulders.
 
7) Who's the best? We really don't know! But if you do know then please don't tell us. We would like you to keep that special secret all to yourself.
 
8) Who's winning the race? Keep in mind that racial pride is a personal thing. Even when you want to shout how great your people are it get's kind of noisy in here. Then we can't hear what you are saying. You wouldn't want that.
 
9) The Mod Squad. Those folks with the nifty green stars under their names are really awesome people. They kinda look like you too. They act similar as well. When you debate, they debate. When you respect them they respect you back. Give them a hard time, however, then they'll just do the same. Now isn't that neat how this works?
 
10) Above All Have Fun! While you are at it help others have an enjoyable time too for even more gratification.

Women hold their councils of war in kitchens: the knives are there, and the cups of coffee, and the towels to dry the tears.

Another good one from Ako! Similar words of wisdom resembling his previous jewel:

My thanks, all, esp. Seko who posted the original, and quite helpful pieces of posting advice. Always happy to provide a laugh or two--but no more. Wink Don't take me seriously, eh Sparten? I think I'd be worried if someone ever did. LOL

I meant for me to bow to you guys, as if to a large audience. As an Orthodox Christian I am against being worshipped as a false idol.
