I really wish school would hurry up and start for me, but it's not going to until January. At least orientation is in December, so I can do something productive... In two months.....
I do too. Bleach, InuYasha, Outlaw Star, and my sis got me into Naruto. I got tired of it after Haku and Zabuza though. I loved those two characters with a bloody passion.

Not much, except school.
I watch anime sometimes :D

So. What else are you up to?

Oh well, at least you're not there any more. :D

Yeah. I have been in forums since 2003... My first forum was an old Sonic forum. For some reason, people in Sonic forums are a lot meaner than in any other. I have never met any meaner people than the ones that seem to love to lurk Sonic forums. It's kind of crazy.
And yeah. I'm over it, I just remember I was a bit offended. But I'm cool with it. I mean, no one ever actually gave me any problems with it, so I'm fine. lol. I think it was just one of my personal irks, no big deal.

I'm not very familiar with other sites, but I do know there are moderators out there thinking that they can do that to people >:|
And I guess the privilege thing could sound a little harsh, but I bet it was just the simplest way to express it. Hopefully no one wanted to sound bad D;

Nono, wait one sec... I wasn't meaning complete freedom.
I have had a lot of problems with moderators all over the net, so usually I notice the things they do. And I've noticed one thing in common with most of them, there is always one out of every five that decides that since they have 'powers' over people on the internet that they have a right to shame and embarrass them and make them feel worthless and below them. And that's actually why I like it here, because there aren't many mods like that at all. The only bad incident I ever had was once, I do believe, and that's when a mod flammed me half to death. It was incredibly early this year. I don't even really remember who it was. I could probably find it, but I don't like digging up dead bodies.
And when it comes to the signature rules and so on, I agree with a certain size and no offensive material, yeah. That makes sense. I guess what really, really irked me was when they actually stated 'this is a privilage, not a right'. I mean, that honestly is what offended me.
I know I sound a little tunnel visioned though.

I can see where you're going, and you have a point or two, even though I completely disagree.
First of all I've never seen or heard of a mod before acting big and tough, and flaming people, and most of the rules I see are there for a reason. If people were allowed to do what the heck they wanted with their signatures, for example, it could be either offensive (depending on what you put there), take too much space on both the forum browser and on the screen, and/or illegal... leading to possible juridical cases and whatnot.
But I can totally see your point.

I usually don't care what the rules are. Like... It would have made a huge difference if they had said, "Hey, this is causing a problem to the forums. This is why... blah blah blah." But they had to make themselves sound like they were just high and mighty and that they had something to be proud of that we didn't, and I didn't appreciate them trying to make us feel that way. Yeah, they own forums, but it's not like they own a damn badge is the way I see it. People come to their forums and they need to be respectful of them if not for that. We're the ones keeping the forums alive, so why do they even bother trying to act like that?
And as for the person who flammed me half to death, I had never even heard from them again. Thankfully. Usually if a mod asks me nicely to do something, or if they're nice about a warning or infraction or whatever, I'm really understanding and okay with it. But it really lights my fuse when they decide to 'prance around' and act as if they did something heroic and flaunt their powers, kind of like the mod that got mad over something as stupid as fixing my signature a certain way.

I see. :/
Well, myself I don't give a crap about what rules there are, I just follow them... And I didn't even want to change my name, so... ^^;;;
Well, I can understand the way you feel, though. But I can't recognize the making fun of you and being rude; the moderators that I know are quite mature, at least.

One or two I have. But most of them I get along with pretty well. The only ones I dislike are the ones that are just blatantly mean. Like, when I first joined here the rules were a lttle different than the last forum I went to, and I was trying to be nice and ask one of them if they minded, and they were blatantly rude as hell to me and *****ed me out for asking a simple question and made fun of me because I didn't know one simple thing. Those are the kinds of people I simply can't stand. And the other one when they said 'It's a privilage, not a right' about name changing. Now maybe we don't have 'rights' but it's not their place to say that. They sound as if they actually were like, real life government or something. Like, they were taking the online administrating thing way too seriously. I disliked that.

No, I haven't :3
Actually I do my best to treat them just as well as I treat everyone else.

I'm supposing you've had trouble with some of the moderators here?
