The dictionary is your freind. Remember it is frustration for us to weed through your nonsense when the rest of us forum goers type in English. :confused:

No, it was started in 1980 before the first Monkey Island game was even made. In fact, before ANY LucasArts game

I think he's basically saying that you're so ineloquent that it's hard to believe that you're from the land that mothers our language.

Feral

We're not saying you're dumb. We're jsut saying that...well, yes, I guess we are saying you're dumb. I mean, come on. Did you seriously think the forums were formed in 1980? And then you failed to recognise sarcasm, even when it was clearly presented to you...eck. I'm, really not in the mood for this.

if you don't know what the word inarticulate means, you are.:D




Please note the 'Edited by Neil Joshi' below, that is because I spelt 'inariculate' wrong. :p

Just asking, and I have no intentions of being rude, but what is the point of the thread here again? It seems to have gotten off topic....

Al-back from the BigWhoop
02-07-2003, 01:26 PM
that movie sucks. imo, it is really silly, just like this crappy rhime


btw, obi, its called chatting. gee, wots up with some of you and your spam complexity. the other day i saw some1's post: FORUM RULES. i started to read, untill i got over to this sentence
chatting will be considered spam, and is strictly prohibited wtf, some ppl just dont know how to give it hell and have fun. dont u think we have too many silly rules in real life already?

Lemon Head
02-07-2003, 02:31 PM
if you'd read a little further, you would have eventually found the rule

they're made to be broken

obi
02-07-2003, 06:32 PM
But if we didn't have rules, this place would be burned down by now. Anyway, that isn't the point. I just wanted to know what the thread was about. Thats all.....

a bullet. **shoots guybrush just to make my last sentance make sense**

kidding.

oh, and
rules are meant to be broken

meaning that you are enticing people to break the rules when you didn't have to put them up anyway. just for setting those rules, you are enticing people to create chaos.
to explain this, think of a rule as a locked door. a locked door is engrossing, people want to know what's on the other side. if there was no door there but just a wall, people would be less inclined top get through it.
i'm not saying there should be no rules, but some of them are stupid. you say chatting is considered spam. so just for that, people are obviously going to go and have a full out, nothing to do with nothing, chat. if the rule wasn't there, people may chat, but not as much as they will now it's a rule not to.
