My standards are offended by your wantonly atrocious grammar and elitist attitude.



When did "elitist" suddenly become a bad thing? "Elite" means better than you. Smarter. Stronger. More cultured and intelligent. Don't you WANT others to be "elite"? Don't you, for instance want your PRESIDENT to be an elite? Or your father or mother or the artists or writers you read? Don't you want them to be, to put it bluntly, BETTER than you?

"Ummm...it was just a joke. Is there an objective STANDARD for having a sense of humor? Because if so, you definitely are way below par dude. You might want to work on that. Unnecessary ridicule seems to be how you think people improve themselves, so let me try: YOU SUCK!!! There. Are you any funnier? Or are you still taking yourself too seriously?"

There's standards for types of humor too. You need set-ups and the like. And to know your audience. And to not flub a punchline. Shall I go on?


Thus begins the silliest conversation in the history of the internet (and that's saying something)... Seriously, a pox on both your houses!

I see this thread hasn't been active in a while. What's the etiquette on necroposting (in sticky threads or otherwise)?

Second: If you approach someone with an idea, and they receive your message, but they don't reply, at what point is it appropriate to assume that they're not interested and propose the idea to someone else?
