    Being agreeable on Internet forums

    After several months' practice I have now refined "being agreeable on Internet forums" down to a fine art. The trick, I have discovered, is to agree with what everyone says (which especially involves not contradicting) and invariably emote over domesticated-animal-related fluff.

    We should all have a try at the same time. Thursday 4th May.

    If it works we can progress to having a Being Agreeable On ForumGarden Day on the first Thursday of every third month with an annual award ceremony for outstanding achievements.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Using a fluffy kitten might provoke claims that the site is speciesist and possibly even a complaint from PETA. That could cause some non-nice comments. On top of that, you may find that some pushback from the Star Wars fans complaining about you trying to co-opt their special day.

    We have a number of bunny wabbits in the fields around the house. I could shoot one for you. No trouble 'tall. Where should I have it shipped?
