    While my boss does have the last word, it's still rude to ignore my preferences. Other people get their full names, and I'm not asking to be called something unprofessional, so in what way is it unreasonable to ask to be called by my name?

    I have made it fairly clear that professionally I want to go by my full name, and yet I'm railroaded into using a shorter version. Especially as others get the courtesy of their full name, it feels like 'you get your preferred name if I like you'.

    In a non-work situation, if someone calls you anything you don't approve of, you don't have to respond. It is kind of hardline, so don't do it if you don't really care, but if you don't react to someone's call, they will change to calling you something you will respond to pretty quickly, unless they are really invested in it, and who cares that much about someone else's name?
    It's also a useful screening tool, weirdly. Going by what somebody calls me I can tell if they're actually going to listen to me. It works shockingly well.

    The other day my staff members at my job were discussing D&D alignment. I told them that I'm Chaotic Good but he didn't see me as Chaotic Good. He sees me as Lawful Good but whatever. LOL!

    Something something running a Lapp. I've started my teacher training with a week in a primary school and no longer have the energy to pun properly.
    NB: While I never mean to offend anybody, sometimes the unfortunate combination of Aspergersism and the inherent difficulty of reading a situation through uninflected text over the internet get in the way of that goal. Please feel free to point out any social faux pas, inappropriate joke timing, etc.

    Strip #1 is good, although I'd argue that it is probably better to begin with the introductory strips from Dungeon Crawling Fools, despite making a lot of the early installment weirdness (Redcloak...*) weirder. Not that Strip #1 is a bad place to start, it's why my ex started and she found it hilarious despite having played only two sessions of D&D.

    * My ex had no idea why I liked Redcloak and Roy the most out of the cast until she was about two weeks in and both had settled into their characterisations.

    Well maybe if I can get this darn application form part 2 thing filled in, I hate competency based questions. I knew I should have gone for the guarrenteed interview scheme (because autism is still counted as a disability, and my personal strain qualifies under the guidelines).

    Although if I get in I'm definitely planning to get that Beerocracy definition on a stein and keep it on my desk.

    I need more coffee (although to be fair I could end most of my posts with that).

    I've never seen anyone use purple for sarcasm on these boards. It's certainly not widespread enough for me to just immediately think of it.

    Strictly speaking, barring red (being for moderator official voice stuff), there's really not supposed to be any meaning to any colours (and it probably does start to fall under the excessive formatting rules if, well, used excessively). Blue just seems to have entered the collective consciousness of a lot of people here as sarcasm. (Which, admittedly, does help a lot. But one should never expect a person to understand that it's sarcasm by the colour.)

    I've used dark orchid to signify terrible GMing, but that's a SUE files reference.

    The trick is to use a purple that matches your attitude. Mine is bold.
    My headache medicine has a little "Ex" inscribed on the pill. It's not a brand name; it's an indicator that it works inside an Anti-Magic Field.

    Blue text means sarcasm. Purple text means evil. White text is invisible.

    My signature got too big for its britches. So now it's over here!

    I do personally commend the attempts to get tone across in writing. It's one of the only actual flaws of internet communication.

    You can't just assume people know what you're getting at though.

    Caution: Do not taunt Red Fel.

    Pregnant women, the elderly, and children under 10 should avoid prolonged exposure to Red Fel.

    Red Fel may suddenly accelerate to dangerous speeds.

    Discontinue use of Red Fel if any of the following occurs:
    • itching
    • vertigo
    • dizziness
    • tingling in extremities
    • loss of balance or coordination
    • slurred speech
    • temporary blindness
    • profuse sweating
    • heart palpitations

    Every time I read "Red Fel" only once in text, I say it twice more to add a miniscule percentage to a spontaneous summons

    After all, there is always loop holes in the fine print....

    If someone you love uses continued bold purple font use lasts for more than two hours, contact your doctor. If the matter persists after three days, contact your local priest.

    Caution: Do not taunt Red Fel.
    Not taunting. Just wanting to know what the rules are. I need to know rules.

    Pregnant women, the elderly, and children under 10 should avoid prolonged exposure to Red Fel.
    Oh, I'm safe then.
    "Safe."
