Tad Williams' Message Board

Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies -- 'God damn it, you've got to be kind.'
-    Kurt Vonnegut, 1922-2007

Welcome to the message board for tadwilliams.com. All comments are welcome, whether kudos or brickbats. However, please bear in mind that Tad would like this to be a friendly, civil message board, at least in the relations between users. We reserve the right to remove postings, or even ban postings, from anyone who crosses the boundary of reasonable taste. Basically, you can argue vigorously with someone, but watch your language, okay? We have a lot of young readers as well as grown-ups, so please show them some respect.

But the main requirement here is: have fun.

And I ask that in wholehearted innocence, of course. ;D

Licence? The real question is: Do we have dill sauce for the salmon?

Yeah, though I can't remember if the salmon existed yet during the original "------------ly" fiasco, but it was definitely weilded as a threatening object once available.

Now, "wholehearted innocence" isn't too bad because of the different connotation...but in the old days there was that spell where you'd get something like the following:

poster #1:  blah blah balh.  I like pineapples and blah balh blah.

poster #2: Oh!  I agree ------------ly!  Pineapples are great.  I like ice cream too!

poster #3: Oh, I -------------ly agree about icecream!  And chocolate.  Oh, and coke is better than pepsi.

((side note: it isn't. pepsi rules))

poster #4: Ditto on the chocolate.  To get back to the subject, I agree ------------ly with what Tad was just saying about world peace.

poster #1:  I agree ------------LY about Tad's thingy too!

poster #4:  I just wanted to say that I ------------ly love it when you agree with me.

poster #2:  You guys are so funny!

poster #whatever: I -------------ly agree.  Too funny! HAHAHAHAHAHA!

and so on.......

thing is, I think I was the only one noticing how often the word was being used, and so I tried to ban it.  You know, bring back sanity and all that.  Obviousy, sanity never DID come back, ever, but still I tried.  At least the present insanity is more ------------ly free than it otherwise would have been.

What I never did tell anyone however, was that I cursed the word along with the help of a tiny indian witch doctor named Revathi so that whoever holds the world record of uses of the word ------------ly will instantly turn into an angry midget with two left feet until the time at which their record is broken.

So just keep it up and see what happens.
