Hi Fellow Kat Kompetitors!
After a bit of a dry spell, I'm back to join the fun again! Between my work internet being PAINFULLY slow (so that it signed me out before I could load a response) and being so pre-occupied with the X-Pack at home, I haven't been too active. Glad to be back!
He he, by the time I get to the KatKwery, "today's" KatKwiz is yersterday's! And since I seldom manage to sign on over the weekend, I didn't even read the 20th's KatKwiz until LONG after it was won! I probably wouldn't have waited, since I tend to play these games more for the fun than for the points, but I think it was a fun twist to the game! And since today's (the 21st) KatKwiz is still going on, I could post, but since it's now work day and I'm just sneaking on during my break, I don't want to spend my entire break looking for the answer! That's why I like the KatKwery, I can just type.
Hmm... Those are the only two I can think of that have restrictions. I would have completely forgotten about the Market Place!
Oh yes, I certainly agree with both the age limit and the membership limit for IMO. Even as it is, things can get pretty heated. It's a really good idea to not let the youngins' in on certain things, and if we let newbies in to post, phew, we'd probably have lots of people on there just to cause trouble and then vanish! Or, we'd have some people really start off on the wrong foot here, and we don't want that!
Yes, I've been a good girl and read all the IMO rules! I think they are all fair and well thought out.
No, I'm not like you in this instance. There's nothing I love more than a good debate! So I do like to read the threads. We have a lot of smart and articulate members on here, and I love reading their opinions and insight. They can be mind opening!
Despite that, I don't often post in there. I know I love debating. To address Naia:

I can definitely see why you feel that way. In real life, face to face, I love a good debate, not to change anyone's mind, but to widening my own. Even if it doesn't change my mind about something, I like to see how others think and their point of view. But this isn't real life, it's not face to face. You can't hear a person's tone of voice and see their expressions and know that you are having a healthy, open minded discussion, so it does often get heated and people do get frustrated in these forums. That's why I don't often post in there. So far I've only posted a few things. Either on topics that I really have what I feel is something unique to add, or something close to me.
So I read a lot more often than I post in there!
