But what if they are really smart children who act like adults?

Is it then OK?

Only if you ARE Reverend Loveshade.

You see, that raises an interesting ontological problem.  Being implies either transcendence or immanence.  Which suggests Lovecraft is something to be overcome, or something can become better at?  Is there a true Platonic Loveshade?  Dare we imagine such a thing? 

On the other hand, immanence may be even worse.  It would suggest the spirit of Lovecraft is an integral, essential part of the world, a manifestation of the Whole.

Neither appeal.

If we're bad, do we turn into Loveshade when we die?

And now I can't tell if you're talking about a pineal pedophile or an early 20th century American author. :x

You pulled the frightened thing from a couple toss-away comments, how about the crux of my point?  That you are a hollow caricature of a formerly worthwhile poster?  You could start there.  

Another opinion. I can't refute that. Am I supposed to say "Everyone get in here and take sides, do you think I'm awesome or a shell?" Will that prove it? No! Even if everyone comes in here and cheers me on your opinion will still be your opinion.

Actually I'll give it a whirl. It's a toughy, and this'll be a stretch, but I'm not doing much right now.

You didn't argue or take issue at any other point at which I attacked someone. I'm guessing the "old Hunter" you are referring to is the guy who spent hours attacking people like Lamanite, AKK, Daruko, Cow Ass, and the various smaller one-shot trolls that have stopped by. So when old complete Hunter argued with people you didn't like, it was lulzy, creative, and skillful. But when new HunterShell argues with someone you do like, he's just a shell spouting old catchphrases and generally failing.

What I see there is you seem to think it's me that changed. Look at this big ol' thread. A whole bunch of people have seen fit to drop in and throw in their 2. All this attention seems to say to me that I am actually just as good, if not better at attacking people. I never got my own flame thread before.

All of this leads me to believe that it is your perception that has changed, and not my posting style.
You are wrong.
I'm doing just fine.

lol, typing fail.

I'm not going to edit to clarify, however.  Probably for the best.

Or Lovecraft.  And you wont know until you die.

Quantum indeterminacy proves this theory.

Cain are you suggesting that there is a shadowing reality outside of our own, where ther exists Loveshade in it's purest form?
 :x
Through me the way to the city of woe, Through me the way to everlasting pain, Through me the way among the lost.
Justice moved my maker on high.
Divine power made me, Wisdom supreme, and Primal love.
Before me nothing was but things eternal, and eternal I endure.
Abandon all hope, you who enter here.

I wanted to point this out, but I couldn't be bothered with the inevitable accusations of "taking sides".

When people are attacking the designated target (AKK, wade, whoever), it's all okay. But when two regulars fight, it's a big deal and other regulars beg them to stop.

That sort of thing leads to a clique-ish mentality on forums and makes them really easy to troll. So yeah, fights every now and then are good. They stop things from getting stale. And stuff.

Yes, if the world hated you and wanted you to die, screaming in abject terror.

And after that? Eternal torment, or oblivion?

I'm not yet familiar with the works of Lovecraft.
