27. trof, I've always held you in high esteem, and it's now even higher.
For you've just used one of my favorite words: ignernt! I love that word, and I wish it was a real word so I could use it in polite society. :hi: guy!

13. Were you around for the "bitch war?"
About three, three and a half years ago: flamewar after flamewar after flamewar about all aspects of the use of the word "bitch," for weeks. A lot of really great DUers left because of the ugliness of that flareup and the intensity of the fighting. I still miss a few of them. (SouthernGirlWriter, you ain't forgotten :patriot:)

20. That's why I abandoned the GDs for the Lounge to begin with.
I got really tired of being treated like I was lower than plankton for sportin' a Kucinich avatar.

41. Haha...
I forget where I even got that from. Seems like it's from a tv show of some sort, but all I hear is the voice saying it, with no real connections to any mmemories of any sort. I'm probably just crazy, I dunno.

9. In such times, it's important to sek the humor of the situation.
Remember the absurdity, and let the viciousness fade away into time. And anyway, most of the nasties have been tombed.

I'm so fucking zen I can't hardly STAND it.

24. Man I am so out of the loop.
I miss all the flame wars. Or I just read the stuff and see people's points of few, and can see both sides of the argument.

30. I could be mistaken,
