Wow. I post about four lines, and 139 messages pounce in faster than a group of anandtechers on a booby picture. The accusations of my supposed referrals to specific people, all the girls jumping in defensively assuming that I was talking about them, I think the thread in all its lengthy glory speaks for itself.

However, I think its pretty indicative of the Taboo system at Anandtech, so far I've seen:

1. You don't dare offend any of the girls at anandtech because the horny geeks that shamelessly flirt with them in hopes of god-knows-what type of reciprocation, come trouncing upon you.
2. You can't evne hint at any call for evaluation of America on any level. This time its the wannabe-redneckers and the Marlboro men who come riding in on their Harley to trounce upon you, stifling your speech harsher than the worst communist oppresors, all in the name of liberty and freedom.

Can you think of any more?

I'm not cryinh, just commenting on the state of affairs here.
Anandtech is a nice place, just a little lacking in breadth of opinion sometimes.

ThisisMatt: your humor is so clever!

CichliSuite, the masses have spoken, you don't need another stupid thread.... after 700 posts, I'm suprised you don't know how it works around here.

what four lines are these? was this that thread about girls on atot and attention?

in general, insulting posts about members are not allowed, it's not limited to the females.

Taboo? That's more of a given around here, just like the creationism, abortion
and <INSERT CONTENTIOUS ISSUE HERE> threads that appear every 3 days or
so.

Basically saying that the girls here are shallow and self centered is what got you slamed.

Calling out all the members here will get you pissed on. THat owrks EVERYWHERE NOT JUST HERE!

Missed that one IF you posted it- However if you are unable to argue to make a point and want to just shoot of at the mouth with no one calling you on what you post perhaps you should go talk to your mirror. The guy looking back at you may agree with you!

The Few ANTI american Threads I have seen Have been full of total misinformation. When you spit out garbage you should be prepared to get crapped on.

BTW starting a thread JUST TO PISS PEPLE OFF is not a good Idea here!
