[DMCForum] Re: This forum vs. Real Life



I agree. The problem that we have here is that there are people with
opinions and they're right. Where there are people there are going
to be arguements. We could make it better by knowing when to end so
we don't turn into the DML. Moderators is a good name for
babysitter. If you ever noticed I have posted to the DML like 5
times as far as I can remember.
