The bottom line is this, almost anything goes here, everyone has said it a million times & i've chimed in my fair share. The wild & wooly dynamic of the Planet is its biggest draw, i lurked a few other boards before committing to the Planet & they were just too tame, i wanted to get in here & mix it up with the rest of the hooligans.
Dane & others flamethrowing ways are something people just need to either A) get used to B) fire back at, or C) run away to the Coalition. Has he revealed a thin skin? sure, but i'd venture that most here have at one time or another. The only way to 'win' here is to tell'em all to kiss your ass & then, most importantly, prove (impossible here, but ya gotta try) to them why they're wrong.
Danes general smarts, entertainment insider knowledge & shit stirring antics help keep this place interesting. R8er? well, this is America after all & if he wants to hang out over in the corner, so be it.
The mods arent changing anything, so why not forget this crap & move on.
