Are you seriously hassling me, or just ribbing me a bit?

I like to think of it as mentoring.  I'm strict about grammar.  If you can't type like an adult, I don't treat you like one.

You're a cool guy, but I will not tolerate your typos!

How old are you, again?

FTL has a website with women's pictures, that you then rate and/or discuss ad naseum here on the BBS. This isn't HotRock 99 FM. This isn't the Keene HS Libertarian Club. This is a great show with great potential. But the Shrine will hold it back.

It's immature, it serves no purpose but to tittilate the men and to convey some sense of acceptance for the women who actually submit their picture, meaning she has low self-esteem anyway, and it just perpetuates the low self-esteem. I would rather be judged by my ideas, not my freakin' picture.

Clearly, FTL is a great show, but the cheesy Shrine has got to go. It makes it hard to take anything seriously that is discussed on FTL or the BBS.

Not that all you kids are taking this seriously, anyway.

First of all, the pictures are not rated.  That would produce a lot of hurt feelings and pissed off women.  Second, nobody forced us to submit our pictures.  We all did it upon our own volition.  Low self-esteem?  Because we submitted pictures to prove that we as women listen to talk radio?  Specifically this talk radio show?

That was not an answer.

Dang!  Give me time to respond.  You're not the only thing I have going on!

Well, it's (Contraction) a damned good thing that your tolerance is not a prerequisite for my continued participation in the conversation, B. Bratticus Brattenstein.

Pretty sure. Yep.

Oh god, now you're all offended.  What a sensi.  Am I going to have to bust out the neo-nazi/high school story?

Do you wear a huge sign that says "I'm a Jew" by any chance?   :P

Um, offended? No. Terse, abrupt, concise. Not offended. Silly rabbit. What do I have to be offended about? You're just picking on me. I'm married, for fuck's sake. I can handle being picked on a bit. And I don't know what these Nazi folk are doing in the conversation, but I'm sure that they're not necessary.

As for high school, It's been fifteen years for me. I'm certain that I can't relate.

Maybe Shrine FAQ can help you understand why Ian started the Shrine of Female listeners
http://bbs.freetalklive.com/index.php?topic=369.0

But here is it's purpose:

Much of "traditional" talk radio doesn't have much of an amount of female listeners. On Free Talk Live, we're proud of our female listeners, and simply want to show them off to Program Directors, and other listeners. As you may know, female callers come first on Free Talk Live.

I've also heard, probably on the show, that the Shrine is used for advertisment purposes (whatever that means).

Personally, the Shrine doesn't have any importance to me, and saying that it serves to show off women, it's pretty silly. It reminds me of a rich old guy, who wants to show off his young (probably blond) wife :P I wonder why there is no Shrine of Senior Listeners or of Black Listeners. I also disagree that female callers come first. But, as John Shaw said, "They have the shrine. They want the shrine. It's their shrine." If you don't appreciate that part of FTL, you may simply accept it, because there are other good and more important things about FTL.

What's funny to me is the validation of a shriner (a sign with FTL on it). How does that prove that a woman is really a listener? I seriously doubt all shriners listen to FTL.

However, I don't believe that women who post photos necessarily have low self-esteem.

No, I use the nazi/high school story on people who get all uppity about dumb things.  Exempli causa, a "lady" with "Property of Ryan" emblazened on her ass got all mad when I said it was stupid.  Her reasons for me being wrong were, a) they were married and b) they owned a tattoo shop together.  After conceding that marriages never end and places never go out of business, I told her about a neo-nazi I went to high school with who had a penchant for writing "toten Jude" on my locker and threatening to kill me.  Then I told her how I didn't kill myself, cry for weeks, transfer to another school or press charges for harrassment.  Rather, I moved on with my life and urged the school to get him for vandalism, because their property rights and his right to hate Jews are more important than my hurt feelings. 

I like to think I'm both a teacher and a bitch.

You got your superiority complex in my peanut butter!
I kid, I kid. The issue here is your mistaken assumption that I was getting "uppity". I was razzing you just as much. While I admit that I can be obtuse, I'd have thought that that was obvious. As for you being the wise and powerful instructor, well, I gave up after my masters and I don't want to learn anything else. I'm totally close minded and will scoff at anything said by a person younger than me. In summation: Get off my lawn!
