GOD DAMNET HELP KILL THE GUY IN MY NAME

Jan 17, 2001, 6:58pm
That's a stupid reason, no surprise.

Have you looked around lately?? WE'RE NOT AWGATE!!!! Talk regularly or else
be flamed, easy at that. You little peapod, if you're striving for
attention, try it in the real world where others can be annoyed, AW is not,
or never will be subjected down to this baby level. If hate screaming, and
you hate talking without capitals, here's a thought, why don't you try
writing in REGULAR grammar. YOu know, the one you learn in English class?
That includes punctuations too, in case you forgot.

About My Capitals

Jan 17, 2001, 7:11pm
Well, your problem does not just only lie in capitolization, it lies in
EVERY COMMON SENSE RULE FOR POSTING IN A NG!!

1. You don't post the SAME THING you just typed in another thread in your
own thread!! We READ it, a lot of us just choose not to repond to your
stupidity.

2. Don't crosspost!!! Post in one newsgroup, for god sakes, maybe the one
that makes sense for the post to be in!! We all read most of the newsgroup,
so there's no need. NONE!!

3. Capitolization isn't your only problem, let's see here, grammar wise,
your comprehension, sentence structure, and punctuation could ALL use major
help. Quick, someone bring over a teacher!

4. Your realization that we're in a newsgroup, not a 3d chat, not a bbs, but
a NEWSGROUP with certain rules, senses, theories, and personalities that YOU
need to learn before ever trying to post here ever again.

Umm...no. :) We're not happy. You still don't:

post to just ONE newsgroup
use correct grammar
uncapitolize words that shouldn't be!
punctuate
have a decent sig (sorry, I just hate it, it makes no sense, sig wise)
post anything that's relevent and useful and informative

I'll say you've gotten better though.

Protecting Children

Jul 13, 2000, 7:19pm
I think the point is, it SHOULD be worried about by a parent. A responsible
parent, in my ideal, does not need passwords. He/She only needs trust and
good supervision. If a parent teaches a child that watching porn is not
allowed (not neccesarily wrong, btw), and enforces what he/she said, I child
would have no reason to watch pornographic worlds because the child respects
the parents enough not to do it. Of course, as a budding teenager, you ARE
bound to break the rules, and that's okay, as long as you get punished and
it never happens again. If this happens, no passwords are even needed to be
on the mind of other citizens. But of course, it is, because no preteen or
teenager will hold hormones over what their parents tell them. BUT, with
passwords created, now it makes it seem like AWLD is more at fault that a
child breaks through a security measure and sees porno worlds. Now, AWLD
will be blamed for not enough security measures on the part of the world,
and it continues on and on like that. Look, if a child is 6, a parent HAS to
be watching that child on the net anyways, that's common sense. But if a
child is 12, he now has the trust of his parents, and you know his hormones
are going to break the trust. Passwords won't prevent anything, and it will
be infringing on some rights issues, and I don't think AW is ready for that.
Comments appreciated, as always. :) I love debating anyways. :)

Nothing's taken personally here, Bird, don't worry. :) I'll only be offended
when you start...well, offending me. :) Justifying what you believe won't
get anyone enraged, unless it comes packed with insults. :) Adilt websites
are only required to have a warning saying "If I am under 18, it is illegal
for me to view this site." Most go a small step further by offering an
alternative of entering the site or going to a "good" site. Once you enter,
most professional "adult" sites have a Visitor's section, which gives you a
peek of what the site offers, (which btw, is WAY too much already if you ask
me), and the members section, which you have to pay for to get in through a
credit card, has all the uncencored stuff. So, it's kinda like cigarette
companies, you can throw all the books at them, but they find ways to get
people seeing and making money. :) If there is any TRUE porn worlds in AW,
they would probably be acting like this also.

Btw, I don't look at adult sites to get my info. lol. I was at Washington DC
at the time this whole debate was going on. :) I was able to talk to some
webmasters and politicians on the subject and attend some press conferences.

I dunno, we've flame each other every single week of the year, before and
after all these "newbies" came (basically, everyone you see here is fairly
new to the newsgroup). It was just the subject of the flames this time that
finally made Facter and AWCOM snap to the point where they had to create an
"Idiot's newsgroup." Let's recall just a few weeks. When we used to flame
about Eep's website, Eep's banning, Eep's hyppocriticalness, and Eep's
intentions, we flame about milk.

People were basically just starting flames and threads that were finished
just a few months ago, and they were too stupid or lazy to look it up and
get over it. I mean.

I mean, I don't think there was ONE discussion without the general newsgroup
a few weeks ago that had anything to do with customer demands on AWCOM, new
features and how they affect the community, or anything relevent or in the
direction of a good community flaming and debate.

Flames in these newsgroup aren't "bad," they do eventually get a lot done in
showing where the community stands on topics. But people were just flaming
out of emotion and bitterness the last round, arguing with no sense to them
or any civility (yes, even Eep's flames come with some form of respect or
civility). Plus, everyone new came barging in without a platform to stand
on, which was really disappointing and mroe so annoying.

The community newsgroup now are fairly nice. The flames and long threads are
ALL still there, because AWCOM's intentions, I believe, was never to end
those threads, but to let them be more than just a "Eep's mean" or "Like
I've said 80,000 times before in this thread, it won't work" type of posts.

I mean, seriously, just look at it. There are actually COMMUNITY events
status' posted and we're getting NEW news, like this new world of AWCOM and
stuff. I mean, did anyone REALLY ever see that before this newsgroup was
made?

General discussion

Jun 25, 2001, 11:16am
Hey, who here who's intelligent is really idealistic enough to think this
newsgroup would be its own mini society torn away from community, where the
outcasts could spend their days living happily and intelligently?

Not me. It's a dumping ground for IDIOTS and NEWBIES. No one here with
slight intellect comes here to read anything unless its for entertainment
that people can be so dumb. You would think that all these people came here
because they were treated unfairly in community or something, WRONG! They
just found a place where they can do senseless things without being flamed.
They're not trying to PROVE that they can be intelligent and sensible and
discuss things like community, but with HTML and all the other things they
get flamed for. They're just happy making useless one word posts and banter.

Which is fine for me. This place was created for that reason. I mean, if you
really don't like what is going on here, just go back to community, as
apparently, you might have the right etiquette and mindset for NOT being
flamed there (although it's inevitable).

Let these people do what they want, it's their newsgroup, let them ruin it
or prosper in it. I doubt they'll take any more criticism from us, they had
enough of it in community.

Wow, a fledgling newsgroup tries to set up its own government. Awww...

Seriously, you all are trying WAY too hard. lol. Just post. If its stupid,
it shouldn't be posted period, out of respect and treating everyone THE
SAME. If someone doesn't want something, its not a sign of power, its a sign
of dislike, nothing more. Just respect that and don't do it, because it will
cause you too many flame wars for just a post on butt powder. I say, don't
make a big deal out of butt powder or anti-butt powder posts. Just move on
to a different topic. Posts like those don't even last that long in the
first place due to its lack of discussion and novelty.

Re: Townbuilders newsgroup idea

Jul 13, 2001, 11:14am
Ah, they don't know, that's why we teach them. Really, before posting in any
newsgroup, don't you guys read a What to Do in a Newsgroup webpage outlining
untold rules and common courtesy? I did, it saved me a lot of trouble, but
you still learn. :) And many posts are important to everyone, and you can't
*tell* for one if a post is HTML, and most people don't like to ignore
anybody's post because in a newsgroup like this, all opinions matter. :))
Maybe though, HTML posts should come with a [HTML] tag in the subject header
so people can ignore them who want to. It makes a good comprimise, but just
realize that although you can and maybe want to, you take readers away from
your post and away from your rep (unfortunately) because you're not giving
everyone a fair chance. :) Who would want people NOT to read your posts?

I, for one, expect people to know that you don't post pictures and HTML in a
post before coming here for two reasons. They are expected, before they hop
on any newsgroup, to read the charter and know common newsgroup sense. If
they don't, we tell them. Just move on. lol. It's how you learn, and you
might not agree with it, but it's not even an issue of pride or anything
big. We've adopted a way of posting to fit with other people's needs, and
that's not to post in HTML. Although you probably can in the thousands of
other newsgroups out there, we don't want it here, apparently. No biggie,
don't make a ruckus, just ask why, get told why, and just conform. lol.
Might sound suppressive, but posting in HTML doesn't make what you are,
unless you run down that path of pushing your ideas over and over again, and
then, no one takes you for who you are, just the outcast
wanna-post-in-HTML-because-he's-better-than-us type of guy. It happens. :))

oy, you're living in an isolated hole. Every Friday night at 8pm vrt,
Roland, AWC's lead programmer comes online in AWUniv to talk and answer
questions about the AW program. It's very technical, but you really get a
lot of in depth stuff from bugs, fixes, future implementations, and such.
Boring and confusing if you end up not knowing the differences in drivers,
hardware, and all that computer mumbo jumbo like me. lol. These tech talks
are really all that Roland sees and does in AW, so when its time to get beta
testers for a new version, he usually calls upon the regulars who really
know what they're talking about and really put in good bug reports and
input. :) If you attend Tech Talk and really can't give anything besides
your opinion, just showing up will sometimes get you into the beta program
since he needs variety in computers. :)

wow, I feel bad for all the pathetic high school and people's lives that you

lot of fun (and drama). I kinda look forward to going back to it this year
since I've gained upperclassman status (junior). :) It's just one of those
things you kinda have to go through to develop and it's lost of fun, but you
can't WAIT to get out. lol.

We have a few immature people and stuff, but every place does. :) We have
cheerleaders who are valordictorians, we have gym classes where we take
walks to McDonalds and eat breakfast, we have really kickass french fries,
and the education is way up there compared to other towns around here in
Connecticut. The proms could use a little work, but blame the class
president (the football captain. :/ some things never change. ;) ). The
principal has GOT to go though. He made it so general level kids (dumbest
and least enthused kids in the school) can't get D's and F's. We're on this
really weird block schedule that takes up more time than it does uses it,
and a bunch of other stuff. But the teachers get paid well, so they teach
better. :) It's kinda fun, we only make it as bad as we want it to be, and
besides, you only go through it once, why try to grow up early? :D

Well, "walking to McDonalds" is what we just say to make gym sound cool.
lol. We ate breakfast there, burned some calories walking back really quick,
and then analyzed what we ate to see how much McDonalds puts on the sodium,
grease, and other saturated fats. It made our stomachs turn really. ;) NEVER
eat at a fast food chain. Even their Mcsalad will get your nerves clogged in
2 days. lol. Other alternative gym activities we had last year with our
really cool teacher (he was an alcoholic and druggie who turned his life
around to teach health. He lost two of his wives to cancer also) was
sledding on the Page Park hill in the winter, minigolfing, swimming,
aerobics, and just playing mental games on each other. It was fun, physical,
and taught us a lot more than playing softball all day. :)


> what a joke.. you must read the text book and not listen

Our teachers actually come with experience, unfortunately and fortunately.
lol. Actually, the state also has VERY strict requirements to get a teaching
certification, the strictest in the country, so they have to go through
hours of college courses and credits, continue their education, get a
masters and such, for the generally low pay (even though it's the one of the
highest state teachers salary in the country), they have a bit more
dedication. Personally, I'd be petrified of teaching teens, even if I think
I could teach them better than the teachers I have now.

I dunno, it's insanity, but I can only assume you learn more about yourself
in an alien environment than a comfortable one. It's not like everyone likes
high school anyways, that's one thing we all can agree on. Taking college
courses in high school would be a lot easier than gaining the credits and
losing more free time in college. You're surrounded by the people your age
who you will inevitably wnd up working for or interacting with against your
will, might as well enjoy it, "preps, nerds, freaks, and all."

I'll join in on the fun too. :) My schedule, that for the first year had NO
conflicting classes or anything, as of yet. :) Usually, on the first day of
school, this schedule we have now will TOTALLY be changed into a mess of
classes you don't want. ;)

On A Day (see, we have two days, A days and B days, with different 84 minute
classes for each day. So you see a class every other day. Weird messed up
block scheduling...)

A1 Semester 1 Phys Ed (might as well get it over with? lol. and it's always
better to excercise in the morning, I heard, so you're more invigorated
during the day, although you sometimes get all sweaty)

Semester 2 - Study Hall, but i'll prolly sign up for Office Aide and
enjoy the benefits of air conditioning, quietness, late arrival to school,
and free phone calls, SCREW THE PAYPHONES!! GO COLLEGE RESUME!!!

A2 French 3 Accelerated (accelerated is the fancy name for honors. lol. and
my week down in Pennsylvania for French camp better pay off this year)

A3 Band (ahh, the joys of having 4th lunch block. :/ )

A4 Advanced Placement/UCONN Chemistry (god, I paid 30 dollars and a heck of
a lot of straight A-s for this college course in hopes that I won't have to
go through the slow and painful death of college chemistry. instant credit.
;) Although, you need to pass the AP exam at the end of the year and 90% of
the class drops out within the first month. Last year, the AP Chem class
held 40 students at first, but after the summer reading was assigned, it
slooped to 30, then after the first week, 15, and by the end of the year,
there were only 6 kids who got the UCONN credit, 3 of whom got the AP
credit. :/)

For a Junior looking towards Ivy League, a pretty uneventful A day except
the end. It's not like I could GET any decent electives (drafting, foods,
CAD, whatever floats your boat) with the classes that fill up the other day
(B Day). Band and French are one of those "committed electives" that you
sometimes just have to choose. ;) Anyways, B Day...

AP American History - Yay, a college class bright and early in the morning.
Since 200 years is a lot to cover, we started sophmore year up until the
Jackson era for this class. Anyone who "passed" the AP History part 1, gets
to go to the REAL AP History and be able to take the AP test at the end of
the year, if they last that long. God, I don't tihnk I can stay awake. The
class is fun and challenging, but dear god, help us all.

Pre Calculus/Trig Accelerated - yeesh, I'm not a math person. ;)

American Humanities English Accelerated - reading is...fun?

AP Chemistry (again) - god, TWO periods of chemistry. how will I survive??!!
That's 84 minutes each day of this stupid subject. lol

You're thinking COLLEGE college courses. This is college highschool
cooperative class. :) Basically, they teach you exactly the same materials
as they do if you went to UCONN, but in high school, meaning there's a bit
more time to let everything settle in your brain, instead of like 2 hours of
chemistry with 100 other students. All we had to pay was 30 dollars to take
the equivilant of two UCONN semester credits (forgot how many hours that is)
in Chemistry. Didn't have to pay for the book or anything, just the actual
class. :) Also, the class is an AP (advanced placement) course also, but the
school district pays for us to take that test. Theoretically, you can skip
UCONN chemistry 101 and 102 or something like that if you pass the high
school class. :)

You mean, depending on what classes you have that semester or year, you have
shorter or longer school days? Wow. Our HALF DAYS aren't even as short as
yours. lol. We have 4 classes every other day, each of them 84 minutes long.
If you put all the classes together every day, it'd still be 42 minutes a
class. :/ Third period has an extra 20 minutes to it to accomadate the 4
lunch blocks (although the time you spend in class is still only 84
minutes). The only exception is if you have no class during 1st period or
last period, in which case, you can sign up for late arrival/early
dismissal. For a school day to count, the school has to be in session from
7:40 (when school starts) til 12:00 (end of school on a half day, or maybe
it was 12:30. one of those). Anyways, our regular school day goes until
7:40-2:05 as it is.
