WT:

I hasten (puff, wheeze) to point out that my post was a joke intended for Sil_liS's amusement.

Having bleated that, I should also add that people on a less international board might be disinclined to misinterpret the humor because the tone and usage would be apparent. Besides, the insults would evolve into compliments as members' post counts increased.

On the nether hind, it isn't always a good idea for a public forum to lead with a playfully insulting tone, since the insults tend to ramp up and become aggressive. Mobile Read doesn't seem to be the right place for that. We're the UN of literacy.

A football forum would be a better place, since members are supposed to take lumps like men (even if they're women, hermaphrodites or eunuchs), and temporarily insulting titles for new members on an RPG board would make a wry comment on the progress of the games under discussion.



Off-Topic:

Does anyone else find the term new age annoying because it's an oxymoron?

Heckler: No, Presti, I find the term annoying because it's used by oxymorons! [Sound of heckler getting buried under a pile-up of manly football forum members]
