Bumping this for any new people that haven't had the time, or taken the time to read this thread.

The posting in one giant block of words makes it VERY hard to read a post, especially if it is a long one.

People, please, if you can, seperate your thoughts and ideas into paragraphs. Even if your spelling and grammar are just horrible (my spelling is atrocious, just terrible) it will be readable...but one giant block of words is almost impossible for me to read through.

The SWIM thing irritates alot of people around here. Some forums insisit that you do use doesn't do anything but make your posts harder to read

SWIM found out that if SWIM used more NaOH that the emulsions would go away. SWIM was so happy that SWIM spilled everything on the floor, and since SWIM was wearing socks SWIM got some bad burns on SWIMS's feet. SWIM was sad, but SWIM learned a valuable lesson about playing with SWIM's dangerous chemicals.SWIM-SWIM.

We won't penalize anyone from using it, but it really clutters up a post. You can always put a disclaimer in your signature like many of us do. It offers the same legal protection as using SWIM...almost none.

Thank you!

I am certifiably insane, as such all posts written by me should be regarded as utter nonsense or attempts to get attention.

I don't know SWIM and personally don't trust him at all. If SWIM is posting, most likely I will not I said, I don't trust the guy. YOU I trust, but never SWIM.

I always block up my text and ignore basic english punctuation rules.

Il try get that sorted out.

I actually like it how the ayawaska forums talk about "The Dreamer". The Dreamer sound like a far more responsible character than that foolish SWIM who seems to get him/herself in all sorts of predicaments on other sites! The Dreamer sounds like a psychedelic superhero. I shall now refer to the wonderful people who inspire me to roleplay on here as The Dreamer.

The Dreamer has four big pots on his hotpates right now, one of chacruna, one of ayawaska, and one wash of each reducing, and a lovely jungle smell surrounds him Smile

I gave up talking about a foaf and friends and my uncle's friends of friends etc because it got confusing and irritating to me, far more so than SWIM. Sometimes when people talk about a friend I'm not sure if they're talking about a trusted, responsible person like The Dreamer's actions, whose opinions I would give credit, or just reciting heresay and rumours from any old acquaintance.

P.s. if the Nexus is anti-SWIM, why is the term given 'authority' by being automatically capitalised and underlined? I would say you should stop doing that if you don't want people using it, because it makes it look like the official term to newbies.
Everything I write is fictional roleplay. Obviously! End tribal genocide: Quick petitions for meaningful change:
End prohibition: And "Feeling Good" by David D.Burns MD is a very useful book.

I agree that SWIM isn't fooling anybody. It is really annoying when you are reading and someone has dispersed SWIM a million times in their post.

If someone is really worried about incriminating themselves, I think that a note at the beginning or as a signature of some sort is enough.

Oh dear.

I made the mistake of raising this matter recently. It really ruffled a few feathers, in fact we ended up getting the mediators in and a bus full of hippies had to come on over and instigate a group hug.

If SWIM was SWIM, SWIM would tread very lightly when it comes to using SWIM, know what SWIM means?

Peace and Love, SWIM.

You gotta SWIM,
SWIM for your life,
SWIM for the music,
That saves you,
When you're not so sure you'll survive,
You gotta SWIM,
And SWIM when it hurts,
The whole world is watching,
You haven't come this far,
To fall off the earth,

The currents will pull you,
Away from your love,
Just keep your head above,

I found a tidal wave,
Begging to tear down the dawn,
Memories like bullets,
They fired at me from a gun,
Cracking the armor yeah,
I SWIM for brighter days,
Despite the absence of sun,
Choking on salt water,
I'm not giving in,

You gotta SWIM,
For nights that won't end,
SWIM for your families,
Your lovers your sisters,
And brothers and friends,
Yeah, you gotta SWIM,
For wars without cause,
SWIM for the lost politicians,
Who don't see their greed as a flaw,

The currents will pull us,
Away from our love,
Just keep your head above,

I found a tidal wave,
Begging to tear down the dawn,
Memories like bullets,
They fired at me from a gun,
Cracking the armor yeah,
I SWIM for brighter days,
Despite the absence of sun,
Choking on salt water,
I'm not giving in,
Well I'm not giving in,

You gotta SWIM,
SWIM in the dark,
There's no shame in drifting,
Feel the tide shifting and wait for the spark,
Yeah you gotta SWIM,
Don't let yourself sink,
Just find the horizon,
I promise you it's not as far as you think,
The currents will drag us away from our love,

Just keep your head above,
Just keep your head above,
Just keep your head above,
Just keep your head above,

Sorry, couldn't resist. A roomie was playing this the other day and I couldn't think about how funny this would be given the forum usage of SWIM. BC, your post gave me the opportunity to unleash this depravity, and for that I thank you.

Ho hum... Rolling eyes

Afraid I just assumed that because I had seen SWIM used in the forum a fair amount, and because it gets underlined and a link to the acronym definition put in when you use it that it was expected... So I've used it in a few of my posts (which I will probably go back and edit - I agree that it is a fairly silly acronym generally, and gets way over used on many forums...) Might swap it for "the pipe", as it will save me a too extensive editing problem Cool .

Wholeheartedly agree on the use of real grammar and making posts readable too - I usually end up going cross eyed and spinning the mouse wheel in defence when I come across posts with no punctuation and bad grammar...

If the purpose of posting to forums is helping one another become more informed or enlightened (on whatever subject - talking generally about forums here), then why make the information you're sharing difficult to read or decode?

Been back and edited all the SWIM's now though Cool ...

OK. So who put a stop payment on my reality check?

we lock up the forum so no-one can google it up

, in other forums i am in ,
you can google it up ,
but when you press the link it redirects you to the sign in page ,
so no free-bies unless you sign up ,
and to even that it would be best to only allow certain forums depending on your post rank ,
and if they actually count has posts .
i could go on forever describing security possibilities .

I've felt this should be the case for awhile now. It would just make things more low key. As much as I feel this information should be out there, I also feel we should keep some things hidden away from the public at large. Things should be available to those who seek them, those on the correct path. But obscured from the eyes of the casual observer. This I feel would tighten the security here and make us feel more safe. I feel access to the chat should be withheld till people are full members aswell. Just for safety purposes. Theres alot of information provided on this site thats less than legal, and I feel we should treat it as such. Though we arent doing it ourselves, some may think that we are. This could lead us down roads we'd rather not travel.

Step forward into your cave. That's right. You're going deeper into your cave. And you're going to find, your power animal...

Imagine your pain as a white ball of healing light. It moves over your body, healing you. Now keep this going, remember to breathe, and step forward through the backdoor of the room. Where does it lead?

I'm too new to really have a say in this lol but I do like that idea.^^^^

Not a private forum, but just un-viewable if you don't create an account or sign in first.
I think that would prevent the random web viewer from stumbling upon extractions and the like. DMT NEXUS sounds pretty innocent to people not in the "know".
Most people not knowing what it was would likely turn away. People genuinely interested have likely already done some of their own research and will know what DMT NEXUS means.

It may help limit the traffic to only those truly interested and ready to discover the information this site holds.

I agree with what others have said, that de-hyperlinking the word to an official description might help to discourage use.

Nor I. This community's trend towards exclusion and elitism is becoming increasingly rank.

Nothing on this site is illegal. It's information. Possession of the substances discussed may be illegal in certain countries, but the information pertaining to their use can be read freely by anyone.

The only significant barrier to doing so, it seems, is the insidious zealotry of self-righteous Nexians who have apparently elected themselves lifelong guardians of the Secret Knowledge That Must Not Be Shared.

Sometimes I believe that this less material life is our truer life, and that our vain presence on the terraqueous globe is itself the secondary or merely virtual phenomenon.

Wow... I'm pretty sure I said something like this in my introduction speech... no one read it Sad

Yes I think everyone who is 'promoted' should at least learn to separate their ideas, and at least use some common sense in their replies. Although not everyone visiting the Nexus specializes in English...
