I've been thinking we need a good cage match to warm things up. There's entirely too much agreement around here.
ETA: Robo's "What's your excuse for pledging a one-sided Oath of Fealty?" thread might be a fun one.
oh, we've had some disagreement around the place, and I'm sure we'll have plenty more. But right now:
1) Most of us get along fairly well with at least some of the people here. (For the record, I personally wanted everyone who has joined so far to join, and am very glad to have all you freaky people here.)
2) none of us love Trump, though we vary in our reactions from, "oh, he's probably not so awful as he seems, really" to "gaah, he's an abomination."
3) I'm being extra nice right now, it being the holidays and all.
4) we're not to drag old feuds from other sites in here, which means we all have to start from scratch to build up grudges to throw into our arguments

FYI, in my quest to find a solution for my error in a thread today, I've found and added a plug-in for formatting in the "quick reply" box. Also,an option to add emoticons to thread titles. Let me know if these aren't working.
