This is the forum as a whole which includes the OT. If what you have to say adds to the conversation then it doesn't matter what your post count is. If it doesn't your post count won't likely save you. The problem with a number of new folks is that they don't have the game experience that some of us old timers have and as such when you try to explain to them that the problem that has them raging is easily circumvented they don't want to hear it. Now suddenly the guy that was actually giving them great advice is the "bad guy". It going to happen because people that are already upset about something don't always think straight.
My view of the OT is primarily who can out stupid the other with some off the wall comment. Personally, I love stupid. Something my wife doesn't understand but I can roll with stupid all day. It's all just good natured fun. Learning the "inside" jokes comes with time but my advice to a new person is just have fun with it. Nobody is taking what is said in the OT seriously. It's supposed to be a crazy twisted joke fest.
Now where did I put my cat? I saw EviL lurking around here earlier and I'm a bit concerned. Maybe the Wind has him or perhaps the GraS but I sure hope that SaNd didn't pick him up. It's hard to get SaNd out of all that fur.
