    Seriously, I've followed the sticky thread above closely and I saw no pact, no new rules, just an open air discussion. So my answer to your question is that there is none.

    Was this the pact that we signed in blood when the moon was full?

    "teh pact" was one in which the more intelligent, but no longer heavy posting, members of the lounge agreed that they were smarter than those who currently post. furthermore, they agreed that posters of the past were smarter and more witty than current posters. IME, that's the pact that has p!ssed off a few members, some of whom have remained silent about it. unfounded arrogance is rarely sexy, and never appreciated. ymmv, etc etc

    of course, as pacts go, this one was silent and this is only my estimation of such pact.

    i think were in the same boat. maybe it is just a trick to further stir up lounge nationalism.

    here is the only rule i follow; dont say anything online that you wouldnt feel comfortable saying to someone else in person. i dont think thats too much to ask.
    I have seen the moment of my greatness flicker,
    And I have seen the eternal Footman hold my coat, and snicker,
    And in short, I was afraid.

    Small particles of plastic will be spread onto a slice of bread with a very blunt knife. Thats the pact, Jack.

    The expressed opinions of 2-3 people in a 200 post thread does not a pact make.

    yes. have you signed it already? you have 24hrs to do so otherwise you won't be allowed to post anymore... plus you have to send me $100 to make you a copy.
    (since you are not as inteligent as those who left you will probably pay me).

    agreed. but if you consider the number of posts expressing that opinion and also factor in the number of people expressed the opinion and then modified it b/c they were called on being arrogant, the 2-3 number is several factors higher. regardless, my point is that any "backlash" from the thread is in regard to those sentiments, whether they be a "pact" or not....again, i don't consider it a "pact", but rather a group of ignorant, insulting, and half baked group of opinions....ymmv etc etc

    so when a lot of people happen to have dissonant opinions than yours they are a bunch of ignorant, insulting and half baked group of opinions. my mileage varies a LOT. conclusion being:
    it's you x them. i agree w/ that. there is no pact and there is no fix. let's fuel the hatred and stop talking about the love. it's not the 60s anyways huh? let's rock and roll. let's insult each other.

    I think some people are placing a handful of opinions under a microscope, labeling them with a level of collective authority that they lack, and doing so just so they can find something to be offended by.

    I stand by my opinion that you're talking about 2-3 posts/posters that used phrases that prickled folks. People need to get over it. Perpetuating the myth in this thread so that folks can remain "offended," or starting "I'm leaving" threads showing nuclear bomb detonation footage, etc. is in my view both silly and destructive.

    disagreeing with me is usually a sign of inteligence. the ingnorance, IME, comes from ths general formulation:

    i don't hang out here because there isn't as much wit and intellignece.

    i do think that's crap. it's one thing to say, i'm here trying to make this place smart, but GD, nobody can keep up. to claim lack of participation as proof of lack of wit is void of logic. i think there's a ton of wit of all varieties. if someone's brand of "intelligence" is different than mine, that's fine by me. i was ruffled by the arrogance and the lack of "live and let live" attitude in the other thread. my contribution to this thread was merely meant to point that out as the possible reason why some have been put off....

    i just haven't seen that sort of pretense outside of graduate writing programs (usually the poets) ;), nttawwt, etc etc, and so on

    Opinions you don't agree with doesn't make those that hold them "ignorat."

    look, i don't care to go count posts, etc. i was just trying to answer the OPs question. i didn't think there was a pact, nor do i now. i had a feeling about the tone of sections (as large or small as they may have been) of the thread and spoke to that.

    honestly, i think the "get over it" sentiment could have ended that thread at about 6 posts...i'm not trying to drag this out the same way, so consider this "myth"ical opinion silenced regarding the matter.

    your argument is flawed. the forum is a virtual cocktail.. if your taste is offended by some posts or the attitude implied in them there is no way you will bring anything to it. you go somewhere else.
    it's simple and logic.
    i won't go anywhere. i will stay and hammer whatever i find wrong. if it's the entire forum i don't care. i'm stubborn and i resist nuclear explosions.
    btw.. this thread is pure provocation and it won't end very well. btw2.. it seems there is a lot of anger, frustration and hatred "in the air" .
