Rule 14. Empty Rule 14.

Post by Guest on Tue 25 Apr 2017, 18:34

Hello,

I don't really understand the following rule. Is this some sort of joke or something? Also, "administrator" is spelled incorrectly.

Doing so could result in either an edit by a Moderator or the Adminator, a mute or even a (temporary) ban. Such language is not appreciated here.

Hello there and welcome to the forums. Smile

It's a inside joke (or not, don't report me *wink*) here in the forums where you must be a fan of tea. Also, for the mispelt "Administrator", I think they actually changed the titles of admins to "Adminator" at one point.

You probably figured out already by now, but...dude (or girl, whatever you are). You have to look at the context & bigger picture. Looking at the remaining rules, is it likely that we actually ban people for using the word that describes the brown/black beverage? How (un)likely is it? Very Happy  I'd say, highly unlikely. But it's OK - don't take my post here as an offence please. After all, some people are good at picking up certain 'nuances', while others may not be as good: I suppose to some extent that will also depend on whether you live in an environment/culture that favors directness or indirectness. 

The entire issue is exarcebated by written online communication, which brings with it that you cannot communicate certain meta-communicative aspects (facial expressions, gestures, tone, etc).

No it isn't actually  Haters gonna hate ("Adminator" used to be Admin's chosen nickname).

I only know something along these lines from the phrase "not my cup of tea", meaning that something is not within your sphere of interest or liking.

Apart from using these tea-icons excessively at times (a favorite side-task of the old Admin's mostly estranged friends back then - all of whom have long left the Forum), disallowing coffee, and even turning coffee into tea, there wasn't much more behind it anyway.  Haters gonna hate
