I found this funny little video today and thought I would share it with our community.

The part about "fanboys" in regard to game consoles could just as soon be applied to insulin pumps!

Enjoy. And be excellent to one another! (Regardless of your type of diabetes, your views on the JDRF, the kind of diet you follow, how you feel about a cure, or how much you bolus for pizza.)

No offense intended, TimmyMac. We here at TuD welcome and adore our members age 13-19. Please understand that the reason I posted the video is because of the many flame wars we have been facing in our community recently. I doubt anyone writing in l33tspeak is enough to set off our ordinarily friendly community. I didn't think the part about teenagers or porn fit the context, but the rest of it was too perfect. I apologize for making you feel unwelcome.
We love you. Timmy!
I'm sure I'm much more annoying than you could ever be, and I'm 54.
I thought this video was cute. Thanks for sharing it! :)
Great summary! And funny, too.
I got kicked out of a D chat room years ago and kicked off a message board and had a whole big internet meeting, because I said either $#i+ or @ss in the room and then a moderator that we never knew existed for years popped in and told me not to swear, and I forget my reply (others would remember) and boom I was gone and after our big meeting the board shut down. I just found the whole thing amusing.

Danny probably remembers.
Godwin's Law: He forgot to mention that Godwin's Law applies to all totalitarian regimes or dictators not directly related to the topic of the thread.

For example, invoking Iran on a thread about the correct number of times to use a lancet will break Godwin's Law. ;0)

I was sent the above link by a friend on another betes forum a little while back. Select a category of "flame warrior" from the drop-down menu or just click 'begin'. Obviously, none of these observations would apply to me or anyone else on TuDiabetes. :)

Priceless!!! Thanks for the link.
Take away the anonymity of the internet and all nonsense will stop. Teenagers are the worst at behaving on the internet since it is anonymous. Back when I was a teenager in the era of pong and computers with 16K of memory.........if a teenager starts fights he/she would continue until they get their butts kicked, then they calm down.
If you want to see some real bad forum behavior go to and the trolls with multiple usernames will make you wish their mothers didn't breed.
