Abridged Debate

Postby orangedragonfire » Thu Mar 08, 2012 10:12 pm UTC

Rules
Spoiler:
This is an abridged version of an internet debate; instead of a full post everyone just posts a short sentence or even just a word summing up what that post would have been like in a real internet debate. For instance:

...
Argument

Counterpoint

Spam

Anger over spam

Anger over reaction to spam

Trolling

Back to topic

Misquote of previous post

Grammar nazi post with several mistakes

etc.


(Inspired by this thread)





Introduction.

asks mod to close the thread, as the argument is clearly over.

You are carrying:
- a slightly paranoid Android
- two left feet (not my own)
- a still unfed and very hungry hippo
- broadsword of +5 ridiculousness stained with the blood of the undead souls
- a stetson Resistol, cuz stetson Resistols are cool.
