    Default A note about language

    In addition to the new posting guidelines, we are also going to be enforcing the no bad language rule in a stricter fashion. For a while we have been very lax about this policy, but we have decided it is time to be more strict.

    My aim, then, was to whip the rebels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom.

    I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation.

    Unfortunately, you will need to send the bribes to Hooahguy and not myself. Though you can feel free to give me donations.

    I'm having flashbacks to that period in my early 20's when I thought I was going to be dragged kicking and screaming into the Priesthood.

    You can still get married as a Moderator, or as an Anglican Priest.

    @KarlRex
    About insults, it is pretty clear that insults are against the rules so dressing up in any fancy way you desire will still achieve the same result of getting a friendly message from your local moderation team.

    Ah, the classic "anti-insult."

    Try to use your better judgement.
