Dramatic description of meta situation. Expressions of anguish/disgust. Falsely modest introductory disclaimer.

Detailed description of current situation. Terse and misleading analysis of non-exemplary item. Offer of hope.
Links to previous items. Harsh criticism of prevailing convervative/liberal figurehead.

Completely unworkable controversial suggestion.

Pre-emptive defense of suggestion. Re-iteration of premise. Re-iteration of anguish/disgust.

Contrived example of applied suggestion:

Item in italics

Unintentionally ironic comment.

Item in italics

Forced attempt at humor.

Optional item in italics [structural]

Intelligent comment marred by typographical error. Extraneous suggestion. Enthusiastic conclusion. Extraneous suggestion. Extraneous suggestion.

Question? Disclaimer. Invitation to comment.

Detailed deconstruction of straw man argument never actually set forth by original poster.

Thinly supported counter argument that makes sense only in light of non-existent straw man position set forth above.

Smug self-congratulatory praise.

Rolleyes.

Shameless bumping of thread to reiterate ill-considered position.

Query as to intelligence level of Otters who haven't yet posted here.

Inane humor. Non-sequitur.

Innocuous comment. Lakers reference.

Truly amusing humor.
Appropriate smilie.

Gratuitous sprinkling of non-standard smileys in vain attempt to disguise lack of substantive content.

Assertion of the existence of previous similar threads, coupled with a mention of the site's search feature, offered in a tone of derisive faux-helpfulness.

Rebuttal to counter-arguments presented

Portion of quoted counter-arguement taken widly out of context.
Rebuttal to quoted portion. Bolded words used to highlight signficant points. Angry smilie face.

Another portion of quoted counter-arguement taken widly out of context.
Rebuttal to quoted portion. Extreme anger expression pointing at stupidity of quoted portion, and stupidity of the portion's advocate.

Thin metaphor circuitously comparing the quotee to a rectum of some description.

Quoted attempted humor by counter-argument adovcate.
Extremely clever retort designed to make the quotee appear unbelievably foolish.

Smug happy face smilie.

Hijack of thread to discuss vain attempts at reproduction with model-stature woman.

Query regarding failure of women to notice poster, coupled with self-aggrandizing, and clearly exaggerated, description of sexual prowess.

Token mention of thread topic. Irrelevant commentary on unpredictability of human nature.

Bad, well-circulated joke.

Link to thread where another member who posted personal attack was banned.

Unwarranted and unsupported accusation of bias on part of mods. Self deprecating remark. Weak statement of general support for mods, expression of understanding of difficulty of mods job. Reassertion of accusation of bias.

Statement of intent to stay away from forum until things change.

Bewilderment at lack of post from SDSDFD.

Bump in vain attempt to get more Otters interested in abstract thread.

Picture of half naked woman as enticement.

Picture of Kobe Bryant to generate controversy.

More backpedal. Reference to previous obligatory smilie after thinly-veiled attack. Vague statement impugning the sense of humor of prior posters. Hints as to dificiencies in the offline life of other forum members.

Italicized contrast between thinly-veiled attack with smilie and unabashed attack resulting in ban.

Cornered animal-like stance wherein one poster posts multiple quoted prior posts in order to defend pride.

Expression of disgust at lack of consistency of prior poster's responses.

Extreme shock at banning. Pleas for leniency for banned member. Links to constructive and humerous threads by banned member.


Suggestion that matter be discussed in Suggestions and Feedback Forum.
