See, i'd delete someones account straight off for that.
If you're ever in an argument and Entropy winds up looking staid and temperate in comparison, it might be time to cut your losses and start a new thread about something else :)

Eh, I think pretty much everyone gets one warning. Unless you directly post porn on the forums or such.

posting repetitively like that, especially since there were only 2 letters per post really gets the powers that be mad.  I would be surprised to see SE threating to ban him for it.


DragonFire, don't do that anymore, this is pretty much the last friendly warning you'll get.  Read the FAQ that Archon linked to and try and behave yourself.

to repeat sprig, this thread is the only warning you will ever get. If you do something remotely stupid again, I will not only delete your account and ban your IP I will also hunt down your dog, cut it's head off, and leave it in your bed. If you do not have a dog or some other pet, a close family member will have to do.

On the topic of Eragon, I can't wait until the movie comes out and I can get to read the review TWG has on it, assuming the movie's as bad as the book.

Yes, Faster, you can prepare the cement shoes for dragonfire. Just be sure that you follow SE's Ninja Cement Mixing Guide to the letter or his monkeys will be after you.

It was horribly fanboyish...

I liked it because it was totally unpretentious.  It was a simple and straightforward heroic fantasy.  And the writing was better than many established authors out there who tend to try and draw attention to themselves through their prose.  Paolini was obviously not trying to do anything with his words other than tell a story.

It wasn't the best fantasy I've ever read by a long shot but it was certainly good.  IMO.
