Sissy Twabbles about unicorns and such stuff should be posted on the sister thread. http://drabblecast.freeforums.org/post-your-twitfic-twabbles-here-general-content-t1053.html

I propose:
  1. That offense-taken and/or counter arguments (or attacks) be limited to twabble form.
  2. General reviews would have to scrupulously avoid personal attacks and, if inflammatory or angry, be clearly couched as mere personal opinion.

That is, it might be OK to call someone a "kitten crushing, parking enforcement officer" in twabble form, but never in a general response.

I don't see the difference between what you call someone in Twabble form or not Twabble form. Personal attacks are personal attacks.
But I think that if you want to have an argument in the form of Twabbles, this is the place to have it! :-)

The idea is sort of like rap wars** or "smack downs".
  1. Twabble based insults are (usually) not taken as literally or personally. Poetic license is allowed.
  2. It takes more skill and time to compose a twabble. This should reduce the qty of vitriol and give the author more time to reflect before posting.
    Anyone who just mashes a standard flame into 100 chars, without regard to spelling, grammar or the twabble art, would instantly lose credibility and "righteous points(TM)".


** Except, now that I think about it, didn't those involve a lot of real-world murders? :? Oops. :oops:

The "House" of God...

Postby TheJebi » Sun Dec 20, 2009 3:45 am

God stared through the stained glass window, longing for the half-remembered times before these prisons had existed.

This is your best twabble yet.
Of course, you're still going to Hell. :P And posted near Christmas time, too!

I agree, one helluva opening Twabble! "Let the games begin", so to speak.

Obligatory "Adult" twabble

Postby Algernon Sydney is Dead » Sun Dec 20, 2009 4:24 am

Susana pumped rapidly, eager for the tangy fluid's release.
At last, it spurted in a fine mist. Nothing beats olive oil!



PS: This is about one of these. :D
PPS: These misters require pumping (stroking a plunger) several times, to build up air pressure. (It was suggested that not everyone, outside of Kalifornia, regularly sprays olive oil. :shock: )

Obligatory "Political" twabble

Postby Algernon Sydney is Dead » Sun Dec 20, 2009 4:26 am

Mike had been a life-long Republican. But, now he was dead and he'd voted for the Democrat, 8 times in just this election.

Didn't take long, did it?
I think an image of the olive oil mister would work better than the site link.

The Magic Wand

Postby Algernon Sydney is Dead » Sun Dec 20, 2009 2:24 pm

Karl tapped, hard, with his magic wand; trying to make "social justice".
His mom cried, "Why are you bashing the serfs?"



Note, this is a companion twabble to this drabble.

Holy crap! That twabble was administrative, meta, AND blasphemous! :D The master at work**.

Glad y’all like it.
I just hope that when (notice I don't say if :wink: ) I win, it's a week that Norm does a narration of it :?

Does that mean my brilliant efforts went unspoken? :cry: (I have a backlog of Drabblecasts I'm saving for when I'm not actually chained to my computers -- the upcoming X-mas roadtrip will do nicely.)

I imagine that, as long as you don't libel a multi-gazillion dollar corporation, you are safe. :P

Yeah, no twabble in the last episode.
And ASID, how can you just quote part of a guy's twabble like that... all or nothing.


(I'm not sure what you're saying about libeling corporations.)

I quoted the relevant parts to my response. I preserved the context even.


Is this quote better?

:P (BTW, this is a perfectly accurate and valid quote, compare to The New York Times.)


(I'm not sure what you're saying about libeling corporations.)

My last "winner" said bad things in print about Microsoft -- A company that spends more on lawyers, any given day, than you earn in a year (or ten). Thus, Norm might have "forgot" to read it. :wink:
