    Santtu, I have to disagree with a lot of your responses here.
    They're also kind of strange, in that they don't seem to be entirely coherent to what is being said, or who you are talking to.

    I wasn't replying to you. I realize you have a different problem with him.

    I agree that I think his English can only explain so much.

    I read some of your blog pages, but I didn't find the connection to the point you were trying to convey.

    Read my blog sometime, sparky.
    edit: Did you imply that your blog was somehow "important" or "notable" enough so that I should know what's there? If so, it's very self-important, as your blog really isn't on that level of fame. No, it isn't obligatory reading on this forum.

    Is there something specific you'd like to be explained?

    I gathered my impressions over a range of posts and only replied to one post. It doesn't mean that everything that I replied to was included in the previous post(s) in the same thread.

    I didn't get that vibe from what she said... fwiw I thought she just meant that if you were to read it, you'd see where she was coming from.

    ----

    One reason I don't post much serious stuff except on my blog (well, semi-serious I guess) is because I have very particular specialist subjects that really never get raised here on the board, and I'm not surprised either because they're boring to most people.

    I mean I could bore you all with indepth talk about Romanesque architecture and art, or medieval battle tactics and European martial arts, or linguistics, or late medieval Catholic religion and Corpus Christi plays... but somehow I doubt any of that is likely to crop up.

    I'm not a scientist by any means and math makes my eyes glaze over. I'm next to useless with a computer and I never studied psychology. So I've little to add to many of the most popular serious topics in here, except anecdotes of my own experience that seem relevant to the topic at hand. It doesn't mean I'm dumb or unable to hold a proper conversation; I'm just trying to contribute because I don't feel it's right (for me, not judging others here) to just lurk around and take pleasure in the hard work of others without trying to contribute something.

    It's also because my RL is pretty stressful on the one hand, and on the other hand, the opposite to Non-pareil's in that I have serious debate a-plenty, but comparatively little time/opportunity for relaxing, connecting with and meeting new people and having fun. I know a lot of intelligent people who are witty and clever and stuff, but I know them mostly in a professional context, so this is the only place I know where I can have rapid-fire mad-cap conversations with intelligent, creative and witty people. And as an ENTP I'm sure anyone can easily see how much that would mean to me.

    I try to keep it all to the fluff/social/blog threads, and when I accidentally leak it over to the serious ones I usually apologize and stop as soon as I realize I've done it (which I admit isn't always as soon as others realize it!).

    I'm not sure whether I'm considered to be a member of any clique; I don't consider myself as such, but if I am without knowing it and I've given anyone cause to feel excluded then I'm deeply sorry about that. Seriously.

    Is any of that valid at all? See, I just don't know any more. I'm starting to feel like the old guard here are impossible to please...

    Some of the stuff people are describing "feeling ignored, having more serious postings getting eaten up by fluff, etc.", is how I was feeling about the forum several months before the reputation system, and the trends people are describing of cliquishness and such seem to have been occurring beforehand. What I think may be going on is that this sort of stuff has been occurring and building up over time, and the reputation system just brings it out in the open and/or serves as a good excuse to blame for it.


    Personally, I've gotten 4 reputation markers, and one comment, so it hasn't effected me directly in any way like it seems to have effected other people.


    I also have to say that the fluff, cliques, etc. would be good things to talk about in general, not just in terms of the reputation system.
