A lot of those in prison for homicide are nice people, too.

Or so one would assume ;)

Nice to themselves, yes.

No, I mean genuinely nice.  I remember when my mother-in-law was in prison a few years ago, there was a nice lady at the next table over who was serving a life sentence for murdering her husband.  She has since remarried, and her husband visits her regularly.  She's a nice lady, from what I heard.

People change, yes.  Meeting someone who has done bad things might change your view of them, yes.  But that doesn't mean you give a criminal free rein just for coming off as a nice guy.  Cold-blooded killers stay in prison.  Banned members stay banned.

She seems nice. How much remorse does she have?

That's not the point.  You don't get out of prison just for having remorse.

Yeah, but he had taken the time to drawn the little picture, then hosted it to a host site, and then embedded it in a forum post.  It'd be a shame to waste all that effort.

US 71, did you make it before that post? I really had mixed opinions about your post kphoger, made me think hard.

It is possible that kphoger is joking, but I'm not good at reading people, so I could not tell you if that is the case or not.  :D

But whatever the case, I will say that whoever did make that picture (maybe it was US71) did a pretty good job. So kudos to whoever it was (even if they aren't on this forum).  :nod:

Why waste the effort when someone else has already?

Wait, did Magical Place of Destiny get filtered to post a different way?

EDIT: Yes, yes it did (What I typed was "A l a n l a n d" without spaces).

Such as me? I have done NO modifications. Others may have, but I have not. I don't play those games.

If people had manually modified your posts, there would be a 'last edited by' line at the bottom.  If you don't see that, then it hasn't been manually modified by any Admins/Mods, or even yourself.

Now, could a mod have added a word filter that affects the whole forum whenever somebody posts a word? Yes.  That wouldn't cause the forum to get tagged with the 'last edited by' line.  However, we will not confirm or deny what words may be on that list.

I have nothing against US71, as he has done nothing to me. I was clearly being sarcastic.

I don't really care, I just found it humorous to come check replies to this thread and find some interesting modifications...

Not everyone's computers are equipped with the sarcasm font, so you may have to start letting people know who are bereft of this feature.
