"Come here, QWOP! Come here!"

Think about that, and a child learning to walk.

"Qwop?"

"Yes?"

It actually really frustrates me that kids are apparently the next logical step from marriage. People don't have to have kids! Frick, you guys.

Yeah - get pregnant first, THEN get shotgun-married.

But, I'm very traditional.

The kid names just came out of discussing possible joint names, because as stalkerish, overly obsessed, fans, that's what we do. I don't think any of us expect them to have kids anytime soon, but we can still mine potential humour out of the possibilities.

I just thought the concept of naming a baby qwop would be amusing, I wasn't actually demanding they do it.

However, I see the point and I apologise.

Hm.. Nope, still not a fan of that excuse.. There's no reason at all to be talking about joint names. As I said, *personal* lives are *personal*. Keep it that way, damn it! D:

Hell, you can be a fan of someone's work and not do odd things like *planning their possible future*, even if it's all for comedy's sake. It's still creepy.

Master Gunner, please don't put everyone on the same level, because there are clearly many in this thread who aren't doing that. That = Being stalkerish and overly-obsessed.

Thing is no one is planning their possible future. All people are doing is making jokes out of previously existing memes or funny things that have been said.

If someone was actually being serious, yeah, then it'd be creepy, but seeing as no one is and neither Graham or Kathleen has stepped in to say 'yeah guys, that's creepy' it seems to be no harm no foul.

Don't want to start anything, but I think it's a sad case of pointing fingers when you accuse someone of being creepy while you're speaking up for a couple that can well enough speak for themselves.

In the end, this is a thread dedicated to a happy occasion, so let us try to be just that, okay? :)

I feel the same way, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to pretend that "Congratulations" had been suggested as a baby name rather than simply an exclamation.

Holy Bus you guys, this is amazing news! I don't frequent these forums nearly often enough, but whenever I do it's pure gold. Last summer I was browsing here and posted about my gaming website, and gained some new friends and writers, and also noticed a post about a certain happy couple coming to a town near me. I attended the gathering day LRRndon day 1 and hung out with some amazing runners, and spent as much time with you guys as physically possible. It's clear you guys were made for each other...

And today I swing past to see what's up... and this... Wow. Congratubilations to you both. And no, I won't be using Grathleen. Congratuwell done to you Graham and Kathleen.

Okay, thanks to Kris Straub I now have the perfect response to this bit of news:

Regarding live-streaming the wedding, I'm assuming everyone's thinking about having a chat monitor so they can respond. I was assuming that if it's done (which I doubt) that it'll just be a camera so we can watch.

Also, I've hated the "joint names" from the start. When did that start up, and where can I get a time machine so I can go back and gag the person who started it?

On rare occasions when universal topics occur, pretty much all Forum users will interact with each other more than usual. Normally we have our threads of preference and we understand users who post commonly in those threads.

So when threads like this happen, people will make jokes. And people will get the wrong end of the stick because they don't know the other forum users well enough.

Its unfortunate the misunderstandings happened. Lets all GZ and creep back to our usual threads and not linger case we start to interact socially again.

O.. Kay? I'm sensing some "cool group" vibe from this. What up wit dat? No point waving forum e-peens of "I've been here longer!" or whatever. That's dumb. :/

There's definitely a limit before it just becomes "these people aren't human, so we can totally talk about their personal lives". I personally don't see that as ever being okay. Whether on TV, internet or whatever, personal lives are personal for a reason.

As AlexanderDitto (I think) said, sure was a better/wiser decision not to make a big deal of it during Desert Bus.. Congratulations was, and still kind of is, enough, y'know.. When you're making "jokes" or legit talking about names for babies and particular wedding stuff for serious (which some posts seem to allude to), it's absolutely creepy.

I also remember Graham saying something along the lines of "it's really not the business of the internet at large".. Which is true, it isn't. All I'm saying is tread lightly.

Eh? No? I'm just saying that tone and context of communications are very hard to distinguish through text alone.

I wasn't talking about their personal lives, I was merely mentioning terrible name puns. I agree the serious posts are creepy.

Oh, sorry, wasn't referring to you specifically on that, just in general. I was curious about the "people coming out of caves known as threads on the LRR forum" thing, but that's about it. o.O

Holy crap guys, chill out. This entire thread is ten pages of people joking around and having fun, and a bunch of crotchety old farts screaming, "NO! You kids stop having fun this minute! How dare you have fun! Not on MY internet!"

If you don't want to read something, then don't read it. It's not everyone elses job to only ever talk about things that your eyes approve of.

If a moderator chooses to intervene, then fine, but it's not anyone elses place to tell someone what they can and cannot talk about in a public forum.
