????? Have ye responded to the roite thread Max
? I cant recall any pirates wishing ill will upon anyone , especially newbies .
If ye read thru the vast majority of pirate threads , the most popular are solely intended to give people a laugh for the day . Granted there are threads that are written by some overzealous young 'ens , but they are ,if you look below the surface , all in good fun and most of the kids are well behaved .
I'm sorry but I can't find much to cause offense , my characters' "sea battles " are a farce IMO , involving food as ammunition . I try to make a point of describing them as something to be avoided .
If anything some of us may be guilty of cutting the line a wee close with innuendo ( and they know who they are! ) . For the most part ( IMO again ) and judging from many responses from folks of all ages and backgrounds , the pirates accomplish their goals admirably .
Look around some more , you'll find most pirates threads don't mention anything of a religious or sacrilegious manner . Instead you will discover clever wordplay , punny one-liners , references to great literary works , references to historical facts and personages , ( although they may get a royal parody treatment )and ripping satire of a fictional nature or of current events etc....
We get a lot of very young posters here so us older and wiser ( or just old ) pirates tend to tread carefully (some of us are parents and grandparents ). We enjoy the enthusiasm and exuberance of the newbs , young and old , even if they can't decyphaRR a thing we write.
We welcome everyone who wishes to join us yet ye must obey the forum rules .
, your post in this thread is the most offensive thing i've read in pirates since i've been here and is considered a bit trollish according to the rules .
I hope you just made an honest mistake and see that pirates is above politics , egos , religion and anything else that remotely resembles seriousness.
We are a friendly lot and enjoy tickling our collective funny bones and we hope all the guests that pop in to read of our misadventures have a good belly laugh as well .
I do wish more would come aboard and keep the absurdity going for as long as the net is alive .
By the way my map is up to date and I am the only one that knows the location of the midjit ring ( I'll fill y'all in as soon as I fine me log book ) .
Join us for some fun , tickle some funnybones for yourself , you may find it as rewarding as we do . If you are respectful , with a modicum of decorum , you will be most certainly welcome by us all , seasoned and newb pirate alike.
