    Just sitting here and a thought occurred to me...

    Why can't the world be more like TSR? Apart from very rare occasions, people from all sort of backgrounds come on here and nobody bats an eyelid: white, black, mixed-race, muslim, catholic, homosexual, bi-sexual, rich, poor, etc etc etc....

    People come on here asking for advice and people go out of their way to help out, even though they're complete strangers.. how often do you get that in society?

    Considering that the users of TSR are teens-late twenties, I reckon the older generation have a few things to learn!

    Really? Then how come I soon won't be able to smoke a cigarette in my local? Real life does have moderators, and they're oppressive nanny-mods at that.

    The reason TSR is fairly accepting is because it's a student forum... and as students we're used to mixing with various groups of people. The world isn't full of Uni students.

    ...thank god :eek:

    There ARE though... there's libel and slander and things you're not allowed to say. And the media is filtered constantly.
