    Lately I've noticed alot of childish behavior here in Off Topic. Stuff you'd expect from a 12 Y/O. I'm not going to name anyone or give exsamples, becould I don't feel that would be right. I understand some people are just screwing around having fun, but alot of the things being posted are quite childish. I'm all for everyone having fun, but running the same thing into the ground over and over gets annoying. Grow up people, and come up with something new and different, the same theam is still just the same bullshit again.

    Yep. That pretty much why it's here. This way people arn't posting silly stuff in the Tech Forums.

    Yep. Thats pretty much how most people like to act in the Non Forum. I like to think of it as a place to let it all hang out.

    Oh You mean like the "Cooking with the Fatman" post that seem to be happing on a reguler basis now /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif. If you don't like a post then don't read it, use the back button. Thats what everyone else does. When the Moderators say it's time to clean things up then they will be cleaned up. Untill then I think everyone should be able to have a little fun.

    How come every time somebody comes up with something funny and runs with it you whine like my two year old at bedtime?

    Chill out and learn how to laugh, brother. And keep in mind that some of us have stress in our lives and enjoy acting like 6 year olds from time to time.

    <font color="green"> OK, I'm finally going to say this. Paul, are you really this dense? Please pay attention. THE ONLY REASON THAT ANYONE IS HAVING FUN WITH THE BEAVER SUBJECT ANYMORE IS BECAUSE IT ANNOYS YOU SO MUCH. If you would just stop voicing your annoyance they will stop or at least slow down to the occasional mention. I never found the beaver thing funny either, but you getting your panties in a wad with the mere mention of the word has been amusing for the last few days. THEY ARE ONLY DOING IT TO GET A REACTION OUT OF YOU. STOP REACTING AND THEY WILL STOP.</font>

I'm not being a dick about about some people's posts. My "Cookin' With The Fatman" appears once a week at the most, and it's different each time. I hadn't posted any of them for quite awhile till someone on this board said they were hungry and asked about it. I can say the same thing about not reading them, but I'll also add that we shouldn't be dissrespect people. That's why I didn't bring up names or exsamples.

    <font color="green"> Oh, well in that case I don't really care. Get back at them, don't try to ruin everyone else's fun. I don't think they mean disrespect, for the love of mike, this is only the internet. There are alot of people in here that take some pretty cheap shots at others, but you're the first one I've ever seen complain. What are we back in 6th grade here? Grow some skin, man. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif</font>

    If ya post it, expect it to get disected and rewrote. I'm pretty sure most of us have had that happen to us, no big deal.

    Disrespect is up to interpetation of a person. You may think you are being disrespected, and some of us think it's downright funny. There shouldn't be a reason for ya to get all bent about it. If you do get bent, then you shouldn't post it. Simple............

    If ya got a problem with some of us discussin beaver oil, don't read it. I don't read every thread in the forum, and I'm sure the majority of people here are the same way. Besides, there are times of dryness in every subject.

    You know what I'm sick and tired of? You canstantly telling everybody what they should and shouldn't post in non 4x4. Who the **** do you think you are? The OT cop?

    Maybe you should get a badge and "patrol" the OT forum to make sure we all post according to your standards. Unfortunately, we'd end up with an entire forum about why the Black Hills are so cool......... /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    There is too much personality diversity here to be asking people to act a certain way. It is a public forum, with 11,000 participants. The fact that it is as tame as it is continues to amaze me; there is a sense of common decency and what is unacceptable, but until mods DECIDE that something is unacceptable, it's all fair. If you have a problem with something someone says, PM them. The more you post about what you don't like, the more resentment you build, and you become a target. Again, this is a very public forum; there are many members who say $hit that bugs the hell out of me, and I say $hit that bugs other people, but we all take it with a grain of salt and move on...asking people to grow up is a lost cause. Call your carpenter, go to True Value and get some supplies, build yourself a bridge, and get the **** over it.

    Alright.....I'll ask,
    Can you give an example of what has bothered you so some of us can give it some consideration /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif
    I thought I grew up when I hit 40. In reality, growing up Sucks! I decided every year I would subtract a year from my age so when im 60, I can act 20 and when im 80, hopefully I'll be breast feeding again /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    Seriously, If you like, you can PM me /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Y'all wanta know whats so funny about all this. I wasn't refereing to anything that involved me. Look at how meny of y'all jumped on this. The only personal issue I had was solved earlier today via a PM. I just got to thinking how dissrespectfull, and childish, things have been lately, so I started this thread. Think about that one. If you've had to jump in on this, who's the one(s) who's sniveling ??
