    'Children' and 'parents' are variables.

    And the answer is simple - there are many who are emotionally and fnancially dependent on their parents, and being dependent do not dare be nasty to their parents, but instead come here to express their nastiness.

    I agree. The answer is simple. Being nasty fulfills a basic human need, and when that nastiness can't be directed in an acceptable way(ie, @parents), it must come out somewhere. It's unfortunate that the dependency on parents has caused nearly 97% of the TypoC population to become nasty forum Jekyll/Hydes, but I believe we can fight this War on the Unetiquette with poetry, fraternity and free intellectual love.

    I keep confusing this thread with YWIR's thread.

    Smile Free Love (Intellectual)

    We are in a unique position on the internet (called the noosphere by Pierre Chardin). For in the noosphere we are disembodied. We are in the perfect position to make intellectual love.

    And for those who love the intellect have found the cross fertilization of ideas to be as exciting as the cross fertilization of the gemetes.

    We roll in ideas as the lovers of gametes roll in the hay.

    And being disembodied in the noosphere we know neither male nor female. We know there is no male idea or female idea - there are only ideas. And we know there are no male minds or female minds - only the mind.

    But we don't want to be Pollyanna, for there is a price to pay for the noosphere. And the price is our literate individuality, slowly and gently replaced by the electronic tribe. And so what we need to learn is the etiquette of our etribe, and indeed the etiquette between our etribes.

    So Vic, what about the financially independent adults who comes here to start trouble? *nudge*

    Seems like almost every post Victor makes these days, has some sort of reference to 'making love". How long has it been Victor?
    It's alright buddy, I have some friends in the 'deep south', I can set you up with. You just let me know.

    Good Ol Ne- Thanks Bud!
