/Flame Retardant Suit on

Hey all. I have a question I'd like an honest answer for, if you don't mind. Respond either here or in PMs, please, I don't mind either... and, since this IS the flame area, I am asking/inviting your most honest. Go for it.

The question:

What do you all think of me? The good, the bad, and the ugly, are all welcome (and encourged).

Thanks all. If you don't know me, don't bother responding... though hearing what you've heard OF me (i.e. my rep) would also be very interesting to hear.

/FRS off

Well, not sure, but i got emoted giggles when i chat messaged a query wondering if Rainy13 had a woman's voice when you entered Voice comms for the first time.
    considering i suspect anyone who roleplays a chick to be a 41yr old male RPing a 16yr old female RPing a 21yr old male...until proven otherwise

    Course i never go out of my way to be rude about it...unless yer someone who rates a flame...But you never did warrant a flame *g*
*shrug*
Once you passed that Voice comm test i kinda didn't have much mean things to think of you. (never did doubt the veracity of the voice either)...It's not like you've ever done anything mean or totally *OOC* in all senses of the word, really, to warrant such draconian scrutiny.

Besides, one HAS to have some trust in one's fellow human beings. Even cynical old Muffy.

Uhm...yer alot like HiTekHickypoo. *g* I'd follow your standard into battle the same i would him (though i'd also rap yer knuckles the same too)

CHARITY
well, lessie now...I tend not be charitable. i'm especially not someone who doles out UNASKED charity.
    and especially not one to fork out any credits to some twink who wants their next fix...Though i do like to act gallant to the ladies. hehe
hmmm...Rainy13 never did ask for charity, hint at it. Nor did she ever act like santa claus herself.
==================
PVP
I'm not one to go rescue damsel's in distress "just because" (i'd rather mentor someone instead of providing flux escort or pvp muscle)
    and especially not one to "help" just because some griefer/carebear is obviously bored or being a coward...Though i might like to stir the shiite just a little sometime too. hehe
*shrug* Rainy13 never struck me as someone needing protection, nor did she act brazen to prove anything. (and i don't recall thinking she took things personally just because "that's what girls do")
==============
CHAT/FORUMS
I try my damnedest to focus my attention on others' concerns and attempt to avoid patronizing (dismissing as "merely personal" issues) someone who didn't warrant a flame...It's a difficult process, and one i doubt even Buddha or Christ or Muhammed ever succeeded at.
    Course, the "lurkers" don't really learn anything about themselves if they don't speak out, right?...Right?
Rainy13 always struck me as forthright and honest in the attempt to not intentionally disrespect the context of others, even while she stated her own views which were contrary to others. (and i don't recall thinking she was bitchy just because "that's what girls do")
=================
TROLLS
Avoiding troll bait is also a learned skill. Takes a keen sense of humor (irony) to spot the self-righteous/ass-kissing anal-retentive politics of trolls and avoid arguing with them beyond a reasonable point.
    First sign of troll bait is the need of the troll to demand more than a reasonable amount of information (ad infinitum)...Though falling on live grenades is a personal pastime of mine...hehe
Rainy13 never played the bait-and-switch tactic so common with trolls, and she had a sense of irony that precluded sychophantic behavior. (and i don't recall thinking she became hysterical just because "that's what girls do")

Uhhh... Can I evaluate Muffy instead? :razz:

Oh...anyway. What do I think about Rainy? Hmmm... Always there to help someone out - mostly with flux. Although I'm skeptical of someone being a girl (I'm trying to remember when I first found out), I know that girls like to have fun too.

You are always a pleasure to talk with, and you have a great mind (which I find intelligence very sexy in a girl). Never afraid to speak your mind, but I'll have to agree with Muffy, you know where the troll bait is (I'm still learning - or I see and ignore the signs - always liked playing with fire).

Rainy always brings a certain cheer to JG that is lacking when she is away (or not online). I'm trying to think of more to say, but the thoughts are eluding me at this time.

I think everyone misses Rainy... Just an all-round good person. :smile:

Awww.... that's sweet. I do try, Hick, consciously and deliberately, to bring cheer to the lives of everyone around me. People are never as joyful as they should be, and I see it as my job to remedy that. After all, no one else is doing it. :p

Next?
