New sub-thread.

"You've been browsing the forums too long when..."

1. You are personally attacked twice in a row by some one you do not know.
2. You know from experience that throwing a fit about it will make you look bad, so you sit back and wait for a mod to read the attacks.

If I were the flaming type I'd ask what someone who just joined the forums a month ago is doing flaming me and my addon. Only with less polite words.

I really don't care if one person dislikes the project I've dedicated the larger portion my last two summer vacations to. Because I know that there's several hundred out there that do like it (the least you could do however is respect the amount of work that went into it). And really comparing it to GE? Are you trying to make me mad at Bob or something? I don't get that part at all. Apples and Oranges?

Anyway however I will not suffer attacks against me personally. Especially not by someone who can't think up insults more clever than "when Gambit gets a girlfriend". I mean come on? I don't have even have to flame you. That insult does itself in.

3. You decide you can't wait for justice to randomly stumble upon a certain questionable post, and so you report it.
4. You just reported a post, so you sit back and wait for the inevitable "tattle tale" insults from the person you reported.

You edit out the posts that seem to be causing issues and warn the members involved that this thread was made for fun, not personal attacks. Leave it alone.

If you feel the need to continue any conversation, do it by PMs. Any and all posts made here to that effect, or anywhere else, will be deleted.

1117: You have your friends sit every other chair to form a protective line.

1118: In WoW, you hold still in a treeline, thinking that other players can't see you.

There are a lot of posts earlier on this thread that could legitimately go into a new thread called "you know you've been browsing the forums (or this forum in particular) when..."

1119: You read up on the history of the Great Barrier Reef and think, "What? I thought Reefs didn't come out until 1.6!"

1120: You need to bugtest a new house, so you go to the banker and give the following note:
:debug
:gold 1000000
1121: After you explain to the banker what that means and the banker doesn't give you the money, you figure you'll come back later in singleplayer when no one is there.

1121: You can effectively cross-reference topics in the forum to answer Turuk's question.

1122: You pray to Dave that he gave Lolcats no resistance to piece weaponry, a Dragonstaff, for example ;).

Clever man, I like that. I should have guessed that might have an influence.

It was a mistake. Alas, I did not read the posts before making an account. It was not as I had expected it to be in the least.

I believe the picture below will answer your question:

Lolcats are immune to pierce, impact, cold, fire, arcane, blade, magical, plague, poison, slow, and charge.

1123: You can recite all the types of damage in Wesnoth easily.
1124: You're proud of that.
1125: You twitch your finger as if to click "T" when something emerges from the fog.

1126: You forget about the sci-fi era, TWOT, and get your "Cattank" fried by a concentrated plasma burst.
1127: You back up Turuk, even when you are a noob. :P
1128: You decide to try to flame Dragonchampion for interfering, and get blasted by a continuous strain of complicated WML.
1129: You flame at all.

This thread completely lost its meaning... probably 500 posts ago. I'm sad.
