All I know is that the OP made me smile, because it expressed how I feel about Enki (lacking, of course, the bits about the chipper and the lye).  Most of the responses made me seethe in hatred, because they were painfully obvious and stale.  Cain getting mad about this puzzles me, because this was going to happen, in the same fashion that there's always one guy who quotes Monty Python if you mention coconuts.

Coconuts? I don't think I've heard that one.

I'm getting pretty well to the point where I can detect a Monty Python quote purely based on how many times I've heard it. What really threw me the other day was hearing a spontaneous American Astronaut quote.
Im guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk, Charles Wick said. It was very complicated.

This whole community seems to have been chewing on paint chips.

Not me. I was absorbing lead-based paint dust through my eyeballs. I think a lot of it is still in there.

Coconuts? I don't think I've heard that one.

I'm not going to recite the conversation, because a) it would be in poor taste and b) I never bothered to memorize it (or anything beyond "tis but a flesh wound"), but there's a scene at the beginning of Monty Python and the Holy Grail in which King Arthur's servant is banging two coconut halves together to simulate the sound of hoofbeats. This leads to an argument with guards atop the wall of a castle. The coconuts become a running gag in the rest of the movie.

I feel so dirty for knowing that.

I think I'm backsliding. I should do something about this.

Cain, you contribute a lot of great content to this site. I don't think anyone is questioning that.

I have no doubt that for every disruptive influence in a thread, there are ten people who are enjoying the content. Surely a declaration of war is unnecessary.

I want to  :mittens: this, but threads like this make me wonder if I'm considered to be in the said category, and I don't want to faux-pas all over myself by mittening something that I should be insulted/offended by...

Ah, fuck it. Either way:

I do not understand Cain's reaction. I thought the responses were good (Not sure about what the fuck BadBeast was on about though)

Then, what was exactly expected from the responses?
I am having a feeling that Cain's reaction is the perfect example of reacting a bit Pedantic.

Can not tell if this is lead by example, or genuine feelings...

This thread is full of sabotards.
The Jerk On Bike rolled his eyes and tossed the waffle back over his shoulder--before it struck the ground, a stout, disconcertingly monkey-like dog sprang into the air and snatched it, and began to masticate it--literally--for the sound it made was like a homonculus squatting on the floor muttering "masticate masticate masticate".

OP was fucking brilliant and should be stickied.

Still holding this position.

The OP is bang on the money IMO! That said I don't think this board is anywhere near as polluted as a lot of others out there. Try a gamer board (any gamer board) if you want a lesson in just how pedantic human beings are capable of being. I learned a while ago that flaming pedants is merely fighting fire with gasoline. Let it slide - they are beneath you.

Having re-read my earlier posts, I'm not even sure what the fuck I was on about either.
However, it would be a shame if whatever it was that I may have espoused, were to contribute to  Cain's reluctance to rant here in the future.
