You know what I hate?

That “nice guy” no longer means, well, a guy who is nice to you.

@ignitionigel generally the guy saying “Girls don’t like nice guys, they like assholes.”

@aldersprig @ignitionigel *pops up out of nowhere* The term "nice guy" has become a common-place idiom meaning, essentially, "a guy who thinks that he is entitled to better treatment/more attention because he doesn't act like an asshole in public".

@aldersprig I prefer to think of it as an unhelpful homonym.

@aldersprig Why Lyn my dear why don't you do as I do and say "he's a decent sort of chap altogether" instead.

We're a (lightly?) moderated community; harassment is not tolerated, and doing nothing but self-promotion or advertising is frowned on.

Other than that, we welcome anyone who wants to come join and whatever language you speak! Anyone who creates - writing, drawing, game devs, crafting, you name it - is especially welcome, since we all do that kind of thing already. By a similar token, we are also a queer- and kink-friendly planet.

Special thanks to @Daily@tootplanet.space for doing the Tooting Planet art, and to @catterfly@tootplanet.space for letting me make a background out of their awesome planet art.
