I can get pretty bad anxiety sometimes... there have been a few times now where I go to reply to something, write and edit and delete and restructure sentences for a good hour, while constantly refreshing the thread to see if anyone else is going to say what I want to say... and then just not post it at all, regardless of if anyone else has brought it up.

So my personal rules:
1) if it takes longer than an hour it doesn't go up.
2) re-read at least twice before posting (and still end up having to edit it minutes later, woops)

And, -definitely- no posting within the first hour of waking up! My blurry eyes and fuzzy brain!

I must irritate the moderators of the aviation forum at least once a day. That's my rule.

I do my best, but he's a tough cookie to crack. If all else fails I can always post another Chapter of the D.U.D.E Chronicles. That should do the job.

Chemtrails or flat earth may do it, otherwise.

I also try to make sure to reference the TR-3B at least once weekly. I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

These aren't really rules for me but rather guidelines that I go by when creating a post.

1. Opinions are not facts

2. Arguments are not discussions

3. Insults are not necessary

By keeping those three things in mind when creating a post, my time here on ATS has been mostly uneventful.

An important rule for me is this: If it's really funny, don't post it. The content might be against T&Cs and it could mean going bye bye.


Oh yes always staying within T&C that's a biggie.
I just noticed you changed your avatar, almost didn't recognize you.

Yes,

NO and I mean NO "drinking and debunking,"

yes i coined that term!!

I get like this in my threads,

www.abovetopsecret.com...

No worries, Gemwolf and I discussed the post and it wont happen again


Lesson learned!


Oh the unknown criteria can get you.
Back when they still had the chat feature I couldn't figure it out til someone mentioned how many posts were needed to obtain admittance.
That's when I do that look in DBCowboy's avatar.

I don't insult other people's avatars- I only mention if one made me laugh or I liked a previous one better.

I don't use funny names for political figures or political groups. I try to not use the words for groups at all...if it is possible in the post I am replying to.


Yes I agree on that one with avatars. I try to keep it positive.
Insulting comments about someone's avatar just doesn't make sense.

I try to not reply to threads while under the influence of alcohol.

I fail just about every night of the week.

My rule now is to avoid getting involved in politics. There's no solution, it gets heated and is no fun. Another rule is to be positive to my fellow members. After all, they're giving me knowledge and laughs for nothing.



I agree and stay completely away from the political forums.
This place is great for free laughs. I'm never bored here.

I always have to respond of I see someone being mean or hurtful to another member.
I have to comment when I see blatant racism or homophobia or intolerance.

Other than that and my naked posting Friday rule, that's it.


Thank you for dealing with such bullies.
I've tried but end up making the situation worse.
I do feel it's better to speak up in those situations.

Just wait til the summer I'll say I'm naked sunbathing posting. Hoping I don't show up on GPS satellite imagery.

sunbathe all you want, you won't post a pic if it's actually going down though.

Is that a dare?

I almost got arrested skinny dipping.
But that was at night.

(and I get to add another self imposed rule) I must stick to the topic and not stray no matter how tempting it is.

I dare you to go skinny dipping somewhere in the Amazon river.

It's not a dare if it's outside the realm of possibility.

Wait where did you get the impression I'm South American?
Most people wait til after they see me to say I look like I'm from another country.

When drinking i go on ultra patriotic diatribes, while meaningful to me they can come across to passionate and jumbled. So, I try not to post when drinking but always seem to find myself here regardless. My other rule before the Misses ran off, was to not post when she was around as she would make fun of me and get upset about the time not spent with her, ATS won , I am still here .


I haven't had a drink in ummm ... almost 6 years.
For no reason other than it makes me ill.

Maybe some night I'll get drunk and post just for kicks - they'll probably post ban me again if I do that.
Did you just change your avatar? I swear it was a different pic earlier.
