...at some of the threads and posts, and quite frankly, I have to declare that I think most of them are written by a set of uninspiring dullards.
That's my first point!
My second point is a question: Have I stumbled onto a yankee site rather than a decent English one?
Genuine answers please.

First of all, welcome to Writing Forums. As far as I know the site is American, but there are lots of other people around! For example, I'm Belgian (as long as that country still exists...). And what is decent???

Welcome to Writing Forums, Gogol! I'm looking forward to reading your work and seeing you around! I hope you find inspiration amongst the dullards!

You've stumbled on an international site. There are staff from both sides of the pond.

I look forward to being amazed and entertained by your scintillating, non-dullard posts. :)

response is always pleasing, especially when....

the intended post was to tease out the most colourful characters gazing into the forum.
Normally to such a 'teasing post' only insult would follow in the wake of it.
It's strange and refreshing to have moderation meet the bait.
I need some opionion from the trio of yourselves on the idea of SALIGIA and the contrary virtures?

I get emails for SALIGIA (tm) in my inbox all the time. I always wonder how they know I'm impotent. In my opinion, SALIGIA (tm) and the contrary virtues (Viagara[tm]?) should be restricted to the elderly or otherwise infirm.

If you are looking for opinions on the uses or applications of ED meds then what are you doing on a writing board?

If you are looking to hock or buy ED drugs...what are you doing on a writing board.

Welcome Gogol...

just a note about the forums, mentors are not moderators. We are just here to help out and such.

I hope you stick around a while, I am interested in the input you will provide in our discussions.

First of all, pal:
This silly reply of yours: 'If you are looking for opinions on the uses or applications of ED meds then what are you doing on a writing board?

If you are looking to hock or buy ED drugs...what are you doing on a writing board.

*coughtrollcough*

methinks!!'
waffling on about drugs has completely missed the point!
SALIGIA is not a viagra tablet worshipped by your cherished and sexually under-nourished wife, nor is it a drug!
Secondly, If you want to insult people on this decent forum, and the decent people like my good self, and the decent Belgiums, may I say: I think you are sadly misplaced.
Good day, sir!

Welcome. Can't wait to read all of your inspirational posts.

No-one is adored in the forum more than those who ruffle a few feathers.

It's true.

Great and let me bow down to the gorund as I genuflect, Lost in Some Plot!
I'll follow every utterance of yours on knees of sycophancy!

Oh, I stopped worshiping the Gorund ages ago. He's a sick fellow, that Gorund, what with the human-sacrifice scandal and all.

I'd much rather worship something tangible. Like television or nachos.

Cheers.

Sir??

husband??

Am I missing something?? Oh wait...I really AM missing something.

I am well aware what SALIGIA is........just not sure how it is associated with Viagra or where that reference came from. It appears it is also the name for an ED med??

Assuming of course you are talking about the Catholic SALIGIA....if not I really havent a clue what you are talking about.

So far as insulting. I dont believe I was anymore insulting than your OP.

You are a veritable uncouth man/woman/or one of the Greek mythological cocktails of wishes.
Do you regularly incite sexual innuendo in your responses?
Across the pond, surely!

Looks like I've won this one! As the usual trawlers and pirates of more creative minds have 'done one!'

Okay, I'll bite cause I seriously think you are talking out your ass.

I have already posted this once, on one of your many threads which has since been deleted with that thread so I will try to remember what I posted.

SALIGIA is simply the abbreviation of the latin words for the seven deadly sins. Nothing more complicated than that. If you really want to be pretentious (which you clearly do by your use of lad and lass which no self respecting person from the U.K uses anymore) then you might want to bust out the medieval latin verb form here and there which is saligiere.(or to commit a deadly sin)
Just in case you didnt know.

So what sort of opinion are you looking for?

Opinion regarding the existence of the seven deadly sins? and, by default, their seven contrary virtues? or their institution by the Catholic church?

If you want information you are going to have to provide a bit of direction as to what you are looking for.

Otherwise you are just blowing smoke.

I think Meldy,that you've bitten the bough of earthly attraction.
That's good and demonstrable commendable from someone who has been cajoled out of their cell of inactivity!
You comment on other people's threads and yet have nothing to say about your own?
Strange!
Why is that?
