Mr. Custa shared this with me.....

And I thought about putting it in the humor forum, but I'll be darned if it isn't close enough to fact to be a documentary on forum rules.

So here you go.

Just remember folks....

1. People do judge you by what you say AND how you say it.

2. This forum was founded by Chris Blount. Even though this is a public forum, consider yourself a guest in Chris's living room. Would you trash your best friend's living room? Same thing here.

I think that if you follow these two simple rules, you will have a fairly trouble-free experience on most Internet forums.

I was just going to post the same thing...Mandatory viewing by all members, and then signing a document stating that one has done so, or give out a test. A score below 75%, one will not be allowed to post until one has viewed it a hundred times.

Don't have time to watch it right now. Does it make any reference to making fun of incorrectly spelled words in thread titles?

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

No, you're safe there. But it does reference something about messing with admins. :lol:

That teen-age part is so true...but what's even sadder is that I know 50-some-odd year old adults that type that way. My Communist cousin, for one. How can I have an intelligent conversation/debate on matters important to the world when I get "ur" and all those other little "teen-age-isms" over and over again. I write an freakin' essay with examples and anteodotes to help get my point across and I'll maybe get a sentence back, full of those little "ur" things. Not to mention that he has no idea how to use punctuation in text-type.

Kind of reminds me of the scene in My Cousin Vinny when Joe Pesci says, "These two yoots..."

Huh, I didn't realize this was the "You must not have our own opinion DBSTalk."

I thought the video was a boring and a waste of time. I would expect a video link posted on the main page of DBSTalk to have more value. My opinion, not trolling.

Maybe you should watch the part about having a high post count doesn't make you smarter.....(which is where I turned it off)
