    There's a site somewhere that answers the question "what is answerMug like?"
    There are several answers there along the lines of:
    It's full of old codgers.
    You'd better not be a conservative or you'll get hounded off by all the liberals.
    You'd better not be a liberal or you'll get hounded off by all the conservatives.
    They have super strict rules about abuse - no fun at all.
    Hopeless if you want to get laid - no one interesting or interested.
    Very small demographic - not wide enough.
    Boring.

    Now we muggers might need to ask ourselves:
    is there any grain of truth in any of these statements?
    are they misconceptions and, if so, to what degree?
    or are most of the kids making these assertions just would be trolls?

    I saw one similar. It appeared to be written by former members who were banned for various reasons. Good answer, by the way.

  • What's that? I always just imagined most everyone here posting on aM from their Jitterbug smartphones.

    Now Zack, you know that IS conceivable. We are the most well-mannered, well-spoken, highly-bred, highly primped and shined group of people, animals, and one Element known on this planet.  There has never been such a gorgeous group!

    That none of us has a hint of humor.  It's all business around here.  We ask strict questions with articulate answers.  There is no and, ifs, or butts about it.
    No laughing or to the penilty box you go. 
    I heard that!

    Thanks Randy.  I knew that looked wrong.  For some unknown reason, my spellcheck turned off.  I've tried to get it to come back on but it won't kick in.  Grrrr.

    Thank you Element.
    You get a "Pass Go. Collect 200 dollars" card to tuck in your back pocket. 
    You can use it anytime, even if you don't pass Go.

    1.  That we have nothing better to do all day every day than to come here.

    2.  That we have no lives.

    3.  That if anyone disagrees with you, it's based on ignorance, hatred, bigotry, arrogance, or a combination of two or more of all of them.

    4.  That we think there's something wrong with liking tildes.

    5.  That we're like a street gang whose rivals are other Q&A website members, and each group considers itself to be superior to the together other groups.

    6.  That we're a cult.

    7.  That we all get along with each other.

    8.  That we all hate each other.

    9.  That we think there's something positive about liking tildes.

    10.  That we don't have enough tin foil lining in our hats to keep the government from reading our minds.

    11.   That we can't seem to show any respect for restraining orders.

    12.  That we all live in our mothers' basements well into our 30s, 40s, 50s, and older.
