    I stack the wood so neat
    Arranged for best Heat
    I sprinkle the gas
    I pause for a laugh
    I reach for the match
    strike once
    strike twice
    I light the Pyre
    Waving farewell to the Mcdune I do not desire.

    I think you're answering one of my posts but...

    EDIT TO ADD
    I see now
    The sense you made
    I did not sense.

    (did I get this one right though ?)

    I do think there's something poetic about our discontent.
    Despite the evil that's being done to a thing we all love, we've found each other because of it!

    Well, there you go. I'm being an asshole, and I see that. But you know, I think Serkanner may be an asshole, too. Now, forgive me (or not), but he may be an asshole. Maybe not all of the time, but, you know, every now and then. He just rubs me the wrong way, and I'd rather fuck off than not speak my mind. He speaks his.


    @Nekhrun I was serious on the chairdog thread. If you feel I may be on to something, then let me now. If not, then let me know where I'm off. I'm willing to admit when I'm wrong. How about a response to that, seeing as how it actually has to do with Dune. Or not, whatever. Fuck. I would rather not fuck off, but I will if you are all in agreement. Oh, well.

    the brilliance of your friction defines you
    shooting star
    blaze of glory
    caution matters no more, you will be heard
    spend your rage
    against the night
    glitter against the backdrop of the void

    It seems you have outwelcomed your stay. Try discussing Dune on Dumbnovels, you'll feel right at home.

    The fact you chose not to use this Image leads me to believe you left your comment on purpose.
    What that purpose would I don't really care, but I'll have you know that before getting cocky around here, it's best to make sure you're not misunderstood.
    It's a long process to gain people's trust, and there is no guarantee they'll like you, but that's the way things go.
    So stop those pointless provocations, they make you sound like a dick, and it's up to you not to.
    We're not going to hold your hand all the way, one day those little wheels will have to come off.

    Well, that was abrupt. And uncalled for, given the context.

    JustSomeGuy, it's up to you whether you leave or stay. But if you stay, please play nice.

    Acting out against other members who "rub you up the wrong way" will not earn you any cred, or respect, or acceptance here. You may see some apparently abusive disagreement between members here, but that's only because there's been a lot of respectful disagreement beforehand.
