Sometimes I feel like I can't properly articulate the thoughts in my head, and that other people can express it so much better than I could. Sometimes I really want to make a point to someone or have them read something but I don't know how to get the conversation to the point where I can link it and I don't know that they'll read it anyway.

I decided to start a little game. I will read any article/excerpt someone links me here and give my thoughts on it. If you've ever thought I was an idiot and so and so distorted anything I was arguing, now is your chance to shove it in my face. In return, anyone who posts has to read and give their thoughts on any article that I, or anyone else, links them. And for others who post here as well. If you see that someone posts here and you really want them to read something it doesn't have to be directed to me. This is a thread for everybody to read things they normally wouldn't so we can all grow.

Be reasonable. If you link me a 100 page article or something, go away. I'm a busy man. I put this in the DDO forum because I think this can be viewed as a community experience and the topics can be anything: political, religious, social, ect so it belongs here.

So if I link you to my love letter to you, you'll read it?

In all seriousness, though, great idea for a thread. I'll be paying attention to what people post.

It's the least biased and most reliable news source, the same way Uncyclopedia is the most reliable wiki.
