i would say i am one of the great room readers of our times. in fact i would say it is my number one skill. an exquisite internal barometer of emotional states indivudal and collective.

unfortunately i usually use this god given skill to antagonise the room or provoke it in some way.

it does Leo yes. im very good at reading this room although there are far less cues and clues. so for instance one night you might take the piss out of someone and they really like it so you do it again the next night and theyre just not in the mood at all and they get grumpy. but you had no real way of knowing except vibrations on the aether. so its harder here.

he thought dissensus was about to go culture wars. which i think was an over reaction. i dont think anyone here gives a shit about that stuff.

you never know when someone had a shit day at work or home and they don't react in their normal fashion.
you never know. so it's pretty easy to put your foot in it unfortunately. we all have days when we are just not in the mood for it.

i dislike the metaphor for online interaction, cos it doesn't feel right, feels like an old meatspace word, repurposed. we need new words.

but a new word which doesnt rely on the metaphor of a physical space? would that not seem almost arbitary? quosm instead of room. feila. trom.

true. but its mostly people throwing up their arms in exasperation. its not commited warriors for the cause

the reason barty is so scared of the culture wars is that he lost his sister to it

his big sister was his best friend. she had a big round ass and she liked dancehall music. she had cool boyfriends barty looked up to and a dirty laugh. but then she went to university and was indoctrinated by man hating feminism and PC brainwashing and she lost her looks and her sense of humour and became a disapproving old shrew.
