Something of a Humorous Nature
That these people manage to be so kind and caring - much less be on a civil speaking level - is enough to almost renew your faith in the basic goodness of mankind.
Someone once asked if people thought that poets were more "intense." After spending almost a year at this loveable madhouse called 'Passions Forums'; I'd have to emphatically say YES! We have more egos and disparate opinions than most legislative bodies! We have people who believe the Earth is square, people who believe Elvis is working in a donut shop near downtown Seattle, and people who believe that you should not believe in anything.
Inevitably, someone will get in an uproar over what the other said
and will end up duking it out in digital ink. More often than not, the instigator is
simply doing that, stirring up trouble for the sake of pushing those poetic buttons. Back
and forth they go, yelling and screaming loudly in bold letters until finally,
"dad" comes in with his wisdom (I think he gets it from a book by that Dr. Spock
guy) and calmly sits everyone down while he patiently explains the facts of life in the
stern but kind voice of reason. This voice echoes loudly across the land, (taking up a lot
of bandwidth) impressing itself onto even the most close-minded.
