What is your reason for thinking that his son is writing the books - or rather where did you get that "information" ...

It's not a detail to which I paid much attention, but it is not "I wish you well", in the books, in fact, and not "Be well" which would be so, an onlinism....?

But I might be wrong, though...

I am assuming when you wrote " but it is not "I wish you well", in the books" that you meant " ... is it not ..." ... yes it is ... "Be well" would be no more an online-ism than "thanks," "sincerely," "best regards," etc, which are used commonly in ending communication ... I would think that a blog post would not have to be BtB or even close - all would be "in violation" ... when blogs become formal I would be inclined to end with "I wish you well" ... be well ...

If I won't put up with an in-character owner trying to control my OOC life, what makes you think I'll put up with you trying to do that?

My grievance with current SL Gor RP is the male characters. Too many of us are acting out the role of the stereotypical "friendzoned nice guy" with these feminized overly chivalrous personalities. I am a bit frustrated by folks trying to correct my behavior over worries that is is offensive to women. We are playing in an RP genre that is already offensive to (most) women just by existing.

You shouldn't be afraid to be a selfish greedy horny bastard, you live in a world where there is pretty much no punishment for beating and raping and abducting women, there is no alimony or child support, nobody is gonna kick you out of the bar for looking at a girl the wrong way. Please guys, stop being so damn squeamish about being dominant and taking what you want, I am not saying this from an "I'm better/more Dom than you" standpoint (because I'm probably not), but I really don't know where this softy chivalrous male character came from, other than a big misinterpretation of what "honor" seems to mean in the storybook sense.

You'd think right? In practice, ohboy the drama and ooc whining rping this way brings.

Squeamish no. Tired of dealing with the arising BS - most probably.

I think more guys would in random RP, but the amount of bitching and moaning and just plain whining and crying that would occur is enough to turn a saint to drink. I mean, I can't blame people for just not wanting to deal with that shit.

Oh damn - it is just not the same if I have to ask nicely :teehee:

But just in case you feel like calling me anything - I prefer, "50 year old republican sexist." ;tybow:

Minerva, our very own young, international, 50 year old republican sexist lady of mystery.

Has quite a ring to it.
