Been on here a few days, but just started being active on the forums and noticed this thread... I'm 28, an aries, and a 2-year student of Bansenshukai Ninjutsu (an 'evolved' form of ninjutsu... basically think Solid Snake - krav maga type combat philosophy and randori, boxing, brazilian jiu-jutsu, modern weapons (rope, tactical baton, knife, pepper spray, etc.), and firearms training all wrapped around the skeleton of the ninjutsu system). Favorite game and anime I'd say would both be Tales of the Abyss lol... just love the cast, the colors, the combat style... everything about it. Anyways, yeah... as I'm sure you'll notice, I'm a bit aggressive, a bit dark... but overall I'm pretty laid back so long as I'm not messed with... I guess kind of like a spider in a way now that I think about it lol... but I'd definitely defend anyone else with the same fervor as I'd defend myself if that counts for any merit. So... yeah... it's good to be here... certainly seems to be some lively conversations and I'm sure that I'll enjoy it here, though I'm the kind of person that gets along well with half of everyone and the other half I clash with... so hopefully at least most of the people here I'll be able to be friends with being that most of us have the same interests. But yeah... again, it's good being here... and obviously I'm the type of person who may at times not say much but when I get started I can be pretty long-winded... so I'm going to stop right now. Heh... its nice meeting everyone.

Heh... I'm not exactly easily intimidated. I've definitely discovered that myself already, but I'm not exactly the type to run away from a fight. As I mentioned elsewhere, I'll treat others with a great deal of respect, but I expect at least a measure of that same respect... if someone seems to be intentionally disrespecting me or anyone else for that matter, especially someone I care about, it's on... I definitely appreciate the heads up marin!
Relax. No one here is attempting to intimidate anyone. In fact, we seriously frown on that type of behavior. You gain respect around here by not being a total ass or a shitty poster. You take your knocks and hopefully learn from them.
Cool, I just want to let you know Boudicca, that I really meant for it to be just one post, me sharing my opinion. I'm really not usually like that, I just tend to get fired up when other people don't respect anyone else's opinion. Other than that, I'm sure you'll notice that I'm really a generally laid-back person... just that one issue that I'd defend anyone over (not excepting myself) pretty much to the death lol. Anyways, I appreciate your response and hope my overreactions will be forgiven. I'll try to keep my temper down in the future when my opinions are ridiculed, but I can't guarantee if I see someone else's opinions being slammed. It's completely against my nature to ignore that. I'm the type of guy that if I saw someone being robbed at gunpoint, I'd probably be the idiot that tries to play hero and gets himself shot lol...
We tend to defend each other around here as well. It's the type community we are. But we give as good as we get around here and don't take it easy on anyone. There's nothing wrong with defending a position, but take the time to step back and realize that not every post disagreeing with you is an attack. If that were the case, I'd be shit out of luck.
No problem. I've actually been seeing people's personalities more now browsing after having talked with some of you. I think it's really been a matter, to a point, of stronger personalities getting to know each other. I'm sure I'll get along with all of you just fine now that I'm getting to know you guys.
