Having taking a lengthy sabatical from Half Baking, I have forgotten many of the cultural norms of this wholey remarkable place.

I see HTML tags, proper grammar and reverant mentioning of custard... but why?

This place feels like a forgotten dream... or maybe it was a nightmare. I can't quite remember. But as I navigate through this now-strange setting, I know I need a guide... Many guides. Maybe a throng of crusading bakers who can not-so-gently prod me back into line with the ascorbic wit I seem to remember might once have been expected here... maybe even enjoyed.

Full emersion Half Bakery.

       Happy to help. You remember the spelling pedantry? Well...

       This sounds like a call for abuse, random violent beatings, and a trebuchet ...

       You say that like it's a bad thing.

       [Mike], a lot has happened while you've been away. People have had extended arguments over gun control; there's been a bunch of orrery-related posts; [8th] has made a number of comments disparaging cats; there have been endless pun-based ideas; and... actually, don't worry. Just pick up where you left off and you'll fit right in.

       There is an additional category. Somewhere. I forgot what it was for.
Ian Tindale, Mar 28 2016
  

       You mean the "Health: amnesia: diagnosis" category?
MaxwellBuchanan, Mar 28 2016
  

       No. Wait, yeh. No.
Ian Tindale, Mar 28 2016
  

       Calm down, [IT]. Here, have a nice cup of tea. The Archers will be on in a bit. Try not to dribble, eh ?   

       <tucks tartan blanket over [IT]'s knees>   

       <gloats over superior Borg mental acuity>   

       You know, this sounds like a call for abuse, random violent beatings, and a trebuchet …

       [MB] I missed an resurfacing of the orrery fixation? There aught to be some form of push notification for such things. I also see [21Quest] is no longer with us.   

       Has [UB] come and gone while I was away?   

       And [8th] making disparaging comments about cats is strangley comforting. It's like a fixed point in which one can always rely on to be true. I wonder when his trebuchet ammunition will arrive.
MikeD, Mar 28 2016
  

       //People have had extended arguments over gun control.//   

       But we've reached a consensus that seems to work for everybody: Those who are against gun control are worse than Hitler and those who are for gun control are also worse than Hitler.   

       So we've pretty much solved that controversy.   

       Welcome back Mike.

       // Has [UB] come and gone //   

       Ah, the Grendel of the HB....   

       // I wonder when his trebuchet ammunition will arrive. //   

       We're anticipating its imminent arrival   

       <puts fresh saucer of cat food under basket, checks prop and string>   

       // worse than Hitler. //   

       "Godwin's Law !"   

       Oh, sorry... as you were.

       But Hitler wasn’t that bad, all things considered… (I think that’s where I’d got up to).
Ian Tindale, Mar 28 2016
  

       //We're anticipating its imminent arrival   

       <puts fresh saucer of cat food under basket, checks prop and string> //   

       You've definatley found the chink in my armour, [8thof7]... I've had so much pussy thrown at me these past 2 years that I honestly don't think I can take anymore.   

       Heh.   

       It's good to be back [Remulac M.D.]. I'm honestly releived to see so much of the regular crowd out and about. I'd been lurking for a few days now and hadn't seen much activity out there. This place was giving me a ghost-town vibe.

       That was just someone re-tuning the theremin.

       //ascorbic wit// Ah yes, wit wit' vitamins! Mind you, it's just about as tangy and sharp as acerbic wit, so, carry on.   

       Hope this gentle prodding was helpful. I'm not usually known as gentle. <lightly stretches outside comfort zone>

       //the regular crowd// here???!!!!
MaxwellBuchanan, Mar 29 2016
  

       //...the ascorbic wit I seem to remember...// - excellent! - a serendipitous typo?
hippo, Mar 29 2016
  

       More likely, a badly-educated spell checker …

       " strangley comforting "   

       Ah, so it's an auto-erotic asphyxia kind of thing...

       // auto-erotic //   

       It would have to be … Americans don't seem to like manual gearshifts.

       Gearboxes are for sports cars and tractor-trailers.   

       Slush boxes are for traffic jams.
