How well does your BikeForums netiquette transcend to other internet forums?

I am a member of a currency trading forum and there is an obvious difference in netiquette between there and Bike Forums. I've grown tired of the typical boring trading discussion and am starting to post random, asinine threads just to boost moral and have fun. We'll see how it plays out.

Have any of you had any difficulties, possible bans, from other sites because you maintained your BF persona on the other site?

I am who I am, no matter what forum I'm on. Although I may downplay the, um, sexual innuendos on the other forum I'm on--too many uptight women that don't get the jokes.

I really do not go to other forums. I feel that if I posted like I do here, I would not be well received. Plus, I barely have time for this addiction, the last thing I need is another place to spend 12-18 hours per day. Pretty soon I would be online 33 hours per day.

I post on a cooking site also. They stick to business most of the time. There's hardly any
silly, fun posts or random stuff. It is still a good place for getting cooking info, so I don't
mind too much.

I'm much more of a know-it-all, d!ckhead, jerk, and misanthropic arsehole on every other board I'm on, compared to this one. I haven't been here long enough to determine the proper amount of "Platy" to use. I have two boards of my own, and mod on another one, which are completely uncensored, so it's hard for me to "nicify" my posts for here.

It probably had nothing to do with perceived nudity, and everything to do with causing folks to vomit.

It's like visiting other countries. You will generally be more successful if you fit into the existing culture.

Nah...women, in all countries, and all forums, seem to respond to horndogging.




of course, sometimes, that response is to recoil in horror.
