    Aside from the immature and catty comments, a little verbal jousting like this is good. It sets a stage for discussion, and lets people show their passion for aSoIaF. I was shown the light by App, and there ain't no way I'm turning back.

    But like Liadan said, personal comments are no-gos. :) Keep it above the belt, guys. ;)

    I don't really see it as below-the-belt. I think of it more as a backhand as I walk away. Still, I"ll try to keep it civil if it will keep from getting serious.

    reminds me more of a stereotypical Paladin.
    There can't be more than a thousand of them. I won't be hurt!!!
    (upon being sent to hell) I've come to demand the surrender of hell!! Well what's taking so long??

    Converts are the best. ;)

    Sorry ma'am.

    rvsp... Damn straight. ;) But as Renz said, verbal jousting = good.

    As long as it's not with Crusader. ;)

    Wait a second. Maybe I'm having a memory lapse, but Falagar - weren't you the one in the General Book Forum that was arguing with us about not liking ASoIaF? You finally saw the light, didn't you?

    EDIT: Whoops, I finally found that thread again. You were in the middle of that little skirmish but were on our side. Nevermind. ;)
