people like to get riled up, get a bit of blood flowing 'round those veins, letting their tongues run loose in passionate agreement/disagreement.
if you honestly think that DiS would be a better place if we just had a jolly good laugh about what happened last night when, ooh, we had a little too much to drink or discussed the pyschological meaning behind the colour of the socks we're wearing today, then let yourself be heard.
as it is, i think Mart aids the diversity of the boards. it would be horrendously boring if everyone was nice to each other all the time.
p.s. i'm wearing blue and black socks: possible emo/hair dye combination?
