He's digging himself a hole in your eyes? What's he going to do, skullfuck you?

Did you really use "respected" and "coolsi" in the same sentence? ;)

In internet forums, especially largely unmoderated ones, it often the practice of forum vets to try and tease out the nature of aspiring regulars. Sometimes this involves some baiting. The test is how such baiting is responded to. I'm not saying this is what coolsi was doing, but I think the end result is the same.

It's still silly, and no more acceptable for being an "initiation ceremony". This being the internets (as has been pointed out), everyone is welcome to take any insults, chew them up and spit out a big "fuck you" straight back. Nothing in the rules against it :P

Anyway, nobody ever paddled my ass with paddles :(
