TOP TEN WAY TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY ON THE TROMBONE FORUM

1. Use lots and lots of netspeak, like OMG, LOL, ZOMG! and ROTFLMAO. Everyone finds this so funny and cute! It’s a sure way to make lots and lots of friends (IMO).

2. never ever use punctuation it just slows down the pace of your post and makes everything so much easier to read and you can get your point across faster and it makes it seem like you have so many ideas you cant get them out fast enough

3. If you start to lose an argument on logical grounds, you can always get back in the game by calling the other guy a liberal.

4. Pass yourself off as an “expert” on whatever the topic is. We all really, really respect the many degrees and vast educational experience of anonymous posters, so bring that up often.

5. Whenever possible, your posts should include references to smoking, abortion, atheism or gun control. These topics are “Forum Gold”!

6. Make personal attacks a part of your daily goals. It’s the best way to ensure a quick response to your posts. Always question the other guy's politics, religion, morals and/or sexual orientation. References to the horse he rode in on are good as well.

7. When you run out of ideas to support your position, just mention Nazis or Hitler. Better still, put these references in your signature or banner. More is better!

8. People love long, looong, loooonng posts. The longer the better. If you can’t say it in three or four sentences it’s probably not worth saying. Better yet, copy and paste long posts from other websites (but never, ever give credit to the original author. This makes you seem wishy-washy). Also, be sure to keep really long posts all in one block without any paragraph breaks. For added emphasis, write everything IN ALL CAPS or bold face or italics. IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING THAT THIS IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE FORM OF WRITING YOUR POST!!! OMG!!!

9. speling and gramer is optianal also

10. Jack up your post count by replying with such pearls of wisdom as “I agree” or “+1”. It’s a well-known fact that post count is directly related to penis size. If you’re a woman, it’s directly related to…penis size. I dunno, YOU figure it out.

ZOMFG +1.

Man, I'm gettin' it already. Great post, RHM. Love a bit of British humour. Take me back to my Fawlty Towers days :D

I'm curious how this post (from another forum) is perceived by different people who operate from different perspectives, how they would react if they were MichaelSeth8:

I don't like to be nitpicky, but I don't see funeralization as a useless tradition.  In fact, I think it is a very important service that I provide for those who have lost someone close to them.  Yes, I am a Funeral Director and Embalmer (and cremator), and I take exception to that claim.  But I don't take it personally.
 
I can say that I LOVE the fact that we are moving away - or so it seems - from more religious-type ceremonies all the time.  Those are the funerals I enjoy working more than the religious.

What's your take on the state of your industry and the impression that, by and large, funeral homes are a racket that preys on the deepest, most difficult loss people suffer?

I would give that person my contact information and inform them, yes there are unscrupulous funerary service providers out there.  Now you know.

there are unscrupulous _______________________________

I used to tell folks, not all attorneys are or act like SOBs (or the female equivalent) and attorneys should not be or act like an SOB all the time, but when it was appropriate, I could be or act like one mean SOB.
