TESTEMONAIL: Right and Discordianism allows room for personal interpretation. You have your theories and I have mine. Unlike Christianity, Discordia allows room for ideas and opinions, and mine is well-informed and based on ancient philosophy and theology, so, my neo-Discordian friends, open your minds to my interpretation and I will open my mind to yours. That's fair enough, right? Just claiming to be discordian should mean that your mind is open and willing to learn and share ideas. You guys are fucking bashing me and your laughing at my theologies and my friends know what's up and are laughing at you and honestly this is my last shot at putting a label on my belief structure and your making me lose all hope of ever finding a ideological group I can relate to because you don't even know what the fuck I'm talking about and everything I have said is based on the founding principals of real Discordianism. Expand your mind.

I do not wish it that serious people take the reins of a serious movement. It is not what these serious times need.
That is all.
Its the tattoo on that cat's arm - always gets the boys around here wound up.
That's why Salazar was so fucking popular.
ofuk, forums ruined
Now, first and foremost, The Good Reverend doesn't want you to think he is giving you orders...but allow me to make a few suggestions, before you run off and post your first threads/rants/etc.
1. If you plan on posting an exciting thread showing your best Kerry Thornley/Ivan Stang imitation, please think carefully before doing so...many of us have been here for years, and we've already read the Principia/Book of the Subgenius/Revelation X, and everything by Robert Anton Wilson...and, unless you have something original to add to those, you're probably wasting your time.
2. Likewise, referencing your pituitary gland, foot gland, or starting an Esperanto thread is very likely to result in your being fed to Fluffy. And you don't want that, do you?
3. "The rule of 5" and long threads discussing the mystical signifigance of the number 23 are perfectly legal...but don't cry when you get laughed at or ignored. Again, those are only funny/interesting the first 300 or so times you hear them.
4. Some posters (who shall remain nameless) will give you a hard time when you first start posting. Those posters (who shall remain nameless) will call you a "sucker", tell you to "fuck off", and rip your masterpiece thread (about the number 23) to shreds. There's absolutely nothing you can do to dissuade them (again, no names), and nobody can hear you scream. Welcome to discordianism.
5. For the love of Sweet Baby Jebus, DO NOT use the terms "real discordians", "true discordians", etc. The Good Reverend doesn't care what happens to YOU, but he's sick of washing blood off the walls.
6. We really aren't impressed that you can post gibberish, in an attempt to sound "discordian". Nor are we awed by claims of superpowers (except when Agent Compassion makes them), descent from Elder Gawds(tm), or claims of being Malaclypse (any of them). In fact, odds are that you'll be bound and gagged, and left at 14th and Minna...a fate best left undescribed. And - just so you know - the last guy who decided to rip off Joshua Norton's act got banished here: http://principiadiscordia.org , where he can make all the proclamations he likes...to himself.
7. Nobody will mod you for threadjacking...but good luck starting any threads of your own, Slappy.
8. Spamming the latest funny thing you found on more than two (2) threads can have adverse effects, including (but not limited to): being the recipient of universal mockery, having NOBODY look at your shit (out of sheer spite), and/or being forced to read Great Teacher Largo's old rants until your eyes bleed.
9. Feel free to experiment with the board and all its HTML-y goodness, but be advised that multi-colored text is very hard to read, and most people won't make the effort.
10. Pr0n bombing will probably get you modded, as will anything that can ge the admin/mods in real, actual trouble (copyright violations, etc). If this happens, your fate is up to the powers that be, and we don't want to hear any whimpering about it. Try not to bleed on us, m'kay?
SPECIAL BONUS SUGGESTION #11: We've been trolled by the best. In fact, some of us ARE the best. So don't give yourself carpal tunnel syndrome trying to impress us...and multiple monikers don't really help. Everyone ALWAYS finds out who you are...and, again, it's been done a million times.
Lastly, be yourself, be original, don't feel the need to "wow" us on your first day, and have fun...
