And where do you fit in?

This site has a great set of forum user architypes, or Flame Warriors is it may be. Which one do you identify with?

Those are great! I definitely found an architype for just about everyone on this forum...

I have to admit, I really related to the weenie

I sometimes like to taunt TroglodyteRider just for fun..

It's funny to randomly pick a guy on the roster , read its description and then apply it to something in the forum And Yes you are a bit of a Coffee Klatch

Mostly Eagle Scout and Philosopher.

But I have a very good memory...Archivist is in the mix too.

Oh yeah...what do you call the guys and gals (like me) that post to forums during the day and successfully pass it off as work to their non-net-savvy managers? The Prestidigitator? The Mirage? Camo-trabajo?

Very funny and amazingly accurate! I think they covered most all bases on that site!

Let's make this interesting: Which Warrior is the person above you?

timmhaan, my boy, I deem you ... Eagle Scout, mostly. You have some Big Cat in you though...

haha. actually i have been rather calm on the forum for a while now. i've been a weenie and an ennui before though.

superdex...you're a bit of a Coffee Klatch it seems. but wrapped up with a recent college graduates youthful enthusiasm.

I enjoy reading.

I have an idea of how I see myself, but it's quite possibly different from how other might view me. I'm almost as conflicted as the virtual newlywed.

Big Cat
Evil Clown
Philosopher
Grammarian
Ideologue
