The difference between a personal attack and just being off-topic is....? Let's all refrain from addressing anyone on the basis of their being persistently annoying to try to talk to, or let's all refrain from attacking them, calling them names, having names called back. Two different things. But hey, when you get yourself off on the wrong foot, aligning yourself with the mod when someone is hoping you'll adjust your attitude a little isn't probably going to get you back on the right foot in a hurry, not that we're a mob or anything. While having an abrasive and straight-shooting personality certainly can have its charms when necessary, there's such a thing as behaving too comfortably that makes others uncomfortable. I'd rather enjoy each other's company very soon and hope that feeling is mutual.
The mod said, the mod said. I think he has a name, and he asked us to be nice, all of us. That said, I don't have a favorite cheese because I live an unrefined life. If it was puns, I'd be down with it.
