  12. I think that is the least imaginative and thoughtful survey I've ever seen.

    As an excuse for finding out what other people like, I don't think it's too bad. As a medium for understanding and information, it is a catastrophic failure.

    Where did you say it was from, GW?

    It was supposed to be fun, I wasn't necessarily trying to "learn" something.

    There's always got to be one flamer in the group.
     
  20. I don't think that behindTheMoon's post was too flaming. I think it was basically on the money. I wouldn't buy GW if it was only a dallah!
    Besides, I've seen a lot worse comments made by you, Hategear... and on very personal threads as well.

    Infact, I'm going to Off Topic to make something fun for everyone.
