I think you have it backwards.
Not everyone is from the same background and will have thick skin and take jokes the same way.
Now here is my rant.
I am new to the community and I have met some very nice people.
However, there seems to be a culture of "asslike behavior" that a few ASC members have. And they probably think its cool. But its not. Try it off the forum, face to face with a stranger and see what happens. Try it in your place of work and see what happens.. Try it when ordering food at a resturant and see what happens..
It doesn't hurt to be a nice guy, and despite what you may think, its not cool to be a dick especially to someone you have never met.
Being an ass isnt cool, it just means you are an ass.
...end of rant.
Steve, I apologize for hijacking the thread. I already have PMs in my inbox with someone offering to be my mentor. You have started a good thing..
I agree with the mentor tag on the user profile. I also think the mentor should get a rating though... similar to trader rating. No sense being a mentor if you are going to be a dick to people and turn them away from the game.
