So basically, people are complaining because Starbucks is exercising it's freedom of speech and religion, not unlike what Chick-fil-A did.

 

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/starbucks-red-cup-christmas-holiday-controversy_563f6e8fe4b0411d30715b15?cps=gravity_5059_-1530811028165539746

Some people are angry about Starbucks’ new holiday cups. Really angry.

What is the issue, exactly?

In previous years, Starbucks’ iconic holiday cups, which the chain uses in lieu of white cups in November and December, featured wintry or Christmas-themed designs like snowflakes, ornaments and nature scenes. This year, the cups are more minimalist -- a red ombre design that Jeffrey Fields, Starbucks' vice president of design, said was meant to embrace “the simplicity and the quietness” of the holiday season.

This is a huge problem for some people, who feel that the plain red cups are oppressing Christians by insulting Christmas.

“This is a denial of historical reality and the great Christian heritage behind the American Dream that has so benefitted Starbucks,” Andrea Williams of the U.K.-based organization Christian Concern told Breitbart. “This also denies the hope of Jesus Christ and His story so powerfully at this time of year.”

Others have shared similar thoughts on social media.

I don't see anything wrong

I don't see anything wrong with it. Granted, I've never been to starbucks (or used social media like twitter, or been out for five weeks), so I don't really have an actual opinion on this.

But really, if someone thinks it's a problem, then just don't get the holiday cup (that is how it works right? You don't have to get the holiday cup?) and ignore the holiday cup entirely. It's not that difficult to turn your head away from a lil' red cup.

I don't even understand the leap of logic from plain red cups to oppressing Christians. How is it oppression when you have the freedom to buy from another store?

I'm sure someone will claim

I'm sure someone will claim that the ending of the 1983 movie, A Christmas Story, is oppressing Christians. In the movie, family's dinner gets ruined by the neighbor's dogs, so they go to a Chinese restaurant where they eat duck instead of turkey. And of course, the Chinese don't celebrate Christmas.

Thunderdrum: Sonarus (Aka: Sonus) - Male - 

Bio:

  My second dragon, Sonarus was sorta of a pain. Since from when he was born, he was very wild and crazy, and even more hyper.

Whispering Death: Thunder Quake (Aka: Da King, Da Racing Champ) - Male -

Bio:

  I found his egg in the tunnels, and Hiccup let me keep him. When he hatched, he looked at me for one second, and then, well, decided he wanted to be free. He jumped out of the stables, and started slithering to the forest. I chased him, freeing him from bushes, rescuing him from drowning, and TRYING to feed him when he was hungry. One day, a wild smokebreath appeared, and for some reason, Da King thought he was, "The King", and decided to take him on. He started dealing blows to it, but the smokebreath won in the end. Before it laid the final blow, though. I jumped and used myself as a human sheild. It hurt, but I was fine. I called in Sonarus, and he saved us. He put his trust in me, and I have helped him ever since.

I patted Waterspout on the side, and we dove in. To my suprise, it was Sonarus and another Thunderdrum! Studying them for a bit, I found out that the blue one was Sonarus's mate!

- Male -

Bio:

  Kinda weird... Ok, so, I went to trader Johan's eggs, and found a dragon egg chest. I asked him could I buy it, since I had just enough gems. So, he said yes, and I got a rumblehorn! Yay! One of my most favorite dragons! Excitedly, I took it home, and put it in the hearth. Later on, I checked on it, and hatched it... then, to my surprise, a baby zippleback popped out! What?! I looked at it, it looked at me, and it was silent for a few minutes. Ok... weirdness attack. Whatever, he's still a baby dragon. I held it, and it's left head turned toward the sunrise in the distance. So I called the left one Sunrise. We played for a bit, then the sun was setting! This time, the right head turned toward it, and I named it Sunset.

Nadder: The Silver Nadder (Aka: Moonstone, Silverstar, Diana) - Female -

Bio:

  So that's why Sun Rose leaves one a year, she's going to visit her sister, Mooonstone. How did I know this? I saw it myself. When she left, me and Thunderquake went to she where she went every year (Yeah, kinda like a stalker, but who knows if she goes mental and starts killing everything? Actually, TMI), she flew into a cave. I waited until night, and suddenly, a silver nadder appeared, and flew out. It came back at dawn, and after it went in, Sun Rose went out. They did this, then I couldn't take it anymore. I need to find out who this dragon is. I crept in, and the Silver Nadder shreiked, then flashed it's wings at my face. Startled, I stepped back. It snarled, and backed away. I decided another plan. When I saw Sun Rose, I signaled her to come to me. She first, well, was startled, then frightned. After face-palming myself, I tossed a fish on teh ground. She ate it, and after gaining her trust, I stepped in the cave with Sun Rose, and soon enough, I found out that this new dragon was Sun Rose's sister, and I took her home.

Typhoomerang: Topspin (Aka: Big guy, Wirlwind, FOOOM) - Male -

Bio:

  This one is a sad one... So there was this typhoomerang that I knew very well. We met in a forest, and even though we were friends, I didn't tame him. Dunno why I didn't, he was awesome. So, a few months late, he found a mate and they had a baby typhoomerang. Then suddenly, his mate died. I felt very sorry for him, and because he had to feed the baby, he left the baby typhoomerang with me. We formed a bond, but in the Chilling Horror month, he went to get some fish... and never came back. I waited for days, and I fed the baby myself with some perch. My friend never came back, so I chose to adopt the baby myself. At night, he would have terrible nightmares, and he would go to my room and sleep with me. He had a serios fear of Backbiter, and I was sorta heartbroken that even though Backbiter wanted to play with Topspin and wanted to stick with him, Topspin always was scared of him and either attacked or flew away. But I know, that one day, the nightmares will pass, and the two dragons will grow to respect each other. My typhoomerang... my Topspin.

Personality:

Always cautious, Defensive, Always on the lookout, Active

Favorite Food:

Eel... I can finally use them!

Just anything that doesn't involve Backbiter or sitting around

Sandwraith: Sandstorm (Aka: Puppy Dragon, He-who-burrows) - Male -

Bio:

  It's funny how a fishing trip can befriend a dragon. So I was spending some time on my own (Raising a ton of dragons is tough, I need a break), and I was fishing and camping out on the beach. I just caught a bunch of halbut and salmon, and I was frying a salmon. *Growl* Huh? I looked up, then left and right. I then felt the ground move, and I looked down. Two eyes stared back up... "YAH! WHAT ON EARTH?!" I jumped back. At that time, I never knew what a sandwraith was. I'm new here, ok? The sandwraith exploded form the sand, and looked at me. Silence for a few seconds... then he wadled to my basket of fish and started eating everything like he didn't care. "Hey! That's my fish!" He didn't listen, and ate all of it. He then turned, and studied me. He looked like a nightfury, so I was intrigued. He then jumped and flopped on me and started licking my face. "You're like toothless!" I laughed, and he licked some more. "Hey, boy! Stop it!" He kept on licking me, and he soon decided that follow me was a better option than chilling in the sand waiting for who-knows-what to go over him. Smart kid.

Personality:

Playful, Smart, Seems to always be hungry

Favorite Food:

Salmon (DO YOU KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO FISH FOR ONE?! *shouts at Sandstorm, he licks me and wadles away.)

Favorite thing to do:

Act majestic

Intresting fact:

First dragon I knew nothing about in the beginning.

Seashocker: Aquashock and Waterskiz (Aka: Zapduo) - Male - 

Bio:

  So, a few days ago, I received a present. Not sure who sent it, or why, but I got it. It was wraped in colored leather, and when I opened it, I found an egg. I couldn't tell the species though. It was colored in multicolors, with "Thanks Hyrith" written in bright yellow paint. I shrugged. The only way to find out the species is to hatch it. When I picked it up, I was shocked. No, not the suprised shock. The lightning shock. I fumbled with it, and Telsabeam jumped from the roof. I think she sensed it was a skirll, so I shuddered. I don't have anything against skrills, just after Telsabeam almost burned down my house becasue she saw a fly, I've been a bit careful with her. I do not need another crazy lightning-maniac shooting around my house. I ploped it down on the hearth, and after a few minutes, it shook. I picked it up, and took it to the lavepit for it to hatch. It never did. It just shook, but it never came out. Just before Telsabeam was about to crack it open, Waterspout stared at the egg, and shot a small stream of water. The water touched it, then it cracked. Puzzled, I dipped my hand in water, and touched the egg. Where I touched, it cracked. Then, I actually figured out something. I took the egg to the sea, and placed it under the water. It shuddered, then a seashocker was born. I was extremly happy, and I thought all my dragon were too. Well, except Telsabeam. She grumbled a sign of disappointment, and wadled away. XD

Personality:

Aquashock is agressive and fierce. Extremly loyal, and will attack anything that he thinks is harming me.

Waterskiz is playful and wild. He loves doing tricks, and is usually the reason why they have so much scars. For some reason, he's addicted to shrimp.

They both work together as a team, probabily because they know that if they argue, they won't go anywhere.

Favorite Food:

Aquashock: Squid

Waterskiz: Shrimp :\

Favorite thing to do:

Bounce on the waves, SO FUN WHEN RIDING THEM!!!

We Are Not Alone, A Chinese and Western Crossover (Later on)

5 months after Hyrith disappeared...

  "Who's there?" Jin sat up on his bed. It was 12 in the night, and most of the academy was asleep. The footsteps sounded louder this time. Jin pushed away the covers, and put on his combat glove. As soon as his hand slipped in, a small flame sparked in his palm. The footsteps stopped, and a creaking sound was heard. Silence. He waited for a while, and figuring that there was nothing, slipped off his glove and pulled the covers over his head.

  "AHHHHHHH!" A scream peirced the cold air, and Jin fell out of his bed. In a hurry, he shoved the glove over his hand, and opened the door. He lit his glove, and the flame ignited in his hand. Across the balcony, a hooded dark figure stepped out of a room. Jin stood in a battle stance. The flame in his palm grew into a fireball, and Jin shouted to the figure.

  "Who are you? Take off the hood!"

  The hooded man turned to Jin, and removed his hood, revealing an old man with a long white, whispy beard. The fireball died down. "Master Zhang?"

  "Yes, my young student. Why are you here? You should be in your room sleeping, not outside watching the snow fall."

  "I woke up because of the scream. Did you hear it too? Did someone get hurt?"

  "That was the reason I came, young one. Go to bed, the final practices starts tomorrow. Do you want to get the blade or not?"

  "Yes master, but safety is more important. Mind if I investigate with you?"

  JIn bowed, and the old master smiled. "Jin, investigate this floor. I'll take the top and bottom floors. Meet after 5 minutes." Jin looked at his old master. He was not usually that kind, but Jin shook that thought out of his mind. He needed to see if someone was hurt.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  "Found anything yet?" Master Zhang glared at Jin, and he looked into the final room. Another sleeping student. "Nothing, master." Master Zhang looked at him, and smiled. "Well, I think it's settled. Let's have a seat, shall we?" Jin shrugged. The master jumped, and sat on the railing. Jin climed up to him.

 "Anything, Master?"

 "Nothing yet, child. Forget this. It's a good night to be alive, is it?"

 "Yes, I agree. You checked every room?"

 "Every room, youngling. How about you-" A howl penetrated the air. A Howler flew towards Master Zhang, and the yellow and black dragon growled. Wait. Jin looked at the Howler, and noticed something. That was Dai Pow, Icarus's dragon. He never submitted to anyone, not even the master, except Icarus. Dai Pow circled Master Zhang. He glared at him, and then glared at Zhang.  He kneeled, and Zhang grumbled under his breath. "Curses. Stupid howler." He then looekd at Jin. "Let me see Dai Pow first." He jumped off the railing, and Jin looked as he kneeled and clasped the wingless dragon's head, speaking some words. JIn nudged myself over, then he felt something. JIn looked down, and he saw blood on the railing, where the master's hand was. Sticky, freash blood. 

   The last room...

  Jin shoved past the master, and to the final room. He didn't check it, since it was the room the master came out of. Jin ran past, and saw a stream of blood running from under the door. He slammed it open, and he gasped in shock. 

 Mei Hua layed dead in her bed, a large bloody gash in the middle of her chest. Her mouth was open in shock. Jin ran to her, and noticed that the blood was freash. Impossible! The master just was in here! Master Zhang would never commit such a crime! A hand then went over Jin's shoulder, sending a chill up his spine. The master glared at him, his mouth curing into a evil grin. Shocked, Jin tried to speak. "What? How? WHY?!" The master smiled. "Yes, Jin. I am the one. Sorry, but I can't have any witnesses." Suddenly, Master Zhang's form flickered, and instead of the Master from before, a red haired boy, stood in his place. He suddenly jabbed his palm at Jin's chest. A blade then shot out, coming out of Jin's back. Jin gasped, and he fell to the ground. His vision slowly filled with black dots, and he thought his last thought.

Ugh. 'AmeriChristians never cease to surprise me.

 

What a load of bull. The old images on the cups aren't even Christianity-related.

"Ah yes, a snowman. Very Christian."

 

This only means that the Christians who actually whine about it know nothing about their own religion at all. They're a shame to the normal Christians.

I know right!

There's the normal christians, then the hardcore ones. It's just annoying how SOME (not all) Christians are so anti about almost everything, as in complaining about everything possible.

Well the ones that are "anti"

Well the ones that are "anti" about almost anything and don't follow the Bible, should not be called Christians at all.  If they don't follow what the Bible says, then they shouldn't be called Christians; even if they have similar beliefs, if a few things don't agree with the Bible, then the actual Christians are supposed to pay them no mind and listen to what the Bible says.  Christians are supposed to listen to the Bible anyway and not what someone says.  You are supposed to check what the person says with the Bible.  If both agree, then the person is doing what the Bible says and you can listen to them in other topics; but still check them in those areas too.  If the two don't agree, then follow the Bible instead.

Thing is, the Bible can be intepreted in so many ways. It seems very subjective to me. Hardcore Christians say they follow the Bible; they probably do but... Y'know. In an awful way.

Did you really just try to justify how the the murder of one person is less important than the murder of three people? So, if terrorists kill one person and the authorities find the body immediately, their homes should not be demolished? The autopsy showed that Khdeir was burned alive. He was "kidnapped and murdered in cold blood by beasts."

Sorry for the lack of empathy, disregard previous message!
Let me write something else:
I remember when I first heard that the boy(who was killed for revenge) was mur.dered, it made me feel sick; what was killing going to accomplish other than more needless death?
Every innocent live taken is a tragedy.

The 'war on Christmas' type

The 'war on Christmas' type of Christians need to be stopped. They're all acting like spoiled children.

 

There's no reason for Christianity to have a monopoly in the US when there's so many different people of so many different background living here. Just because it seems to be the majority when it comes to religion doesn't mean it's the most important or that it needs have its hands in everything.

 

It's all so pathetic and incredibly ironic. These too-aggressive people are screaming and yelling about others forcing their 'beliefs' on them by switching the word Christmas to Holiday, and yet they're doing the exact same thing by demanding that everyone refer to everything as Christmas, as opposed to whatever those others' 'opposing' personal beliefs or views may be.

 

Christians need to outgrow the 'me me me' mentality like yesterday.

Not all Christians. I'm a Christian, and I certainly don't have that sort of mentality. I love Christmas, from the ridiculous Santa hats to the lit up Christmas tree all the way to eating gingerbread men and receiving gifts on that day, and eating chicken for lunch because turkey's rare in my country and we don't celebrate Thanksgiving. I think that some Christians are just way too close-minded (like the ones mentioned above). This new generation of Christians, the teens right now, seem much more open towards these kind of things though, so I have hope (partially because that's my generation XD).

I think everyone on the planet has to outgrow the "me me me" mentality, myself included, learn to think critically, and be able to accept that their beliefs are not absolute. 

 

But this is humanity we are taking about they will get censored about everything and anything I find that funny. Starbucks probably changed their cups to plain red to save money on hiring a designer and on printing fees whille still wanting to celebrate the holidays (chirstmas included). If i remember correctly (please correct me on this fact if I am wrong it's been a while since I brushed up on my american history) people came to america to escape prosecution because of their belief system, hence freedom of religion.

On the Subject of Hackers

please read this link, it helps to identify the different types of hackers. I have hacked computers, and servers in the past (despite not being the best at code) but I never do it for personal gain. Unfortunately the hackers most people refer to on the internet are crackers so they bring a bad light on the hacking community in general. I only learned to hack code because I needed to in order to hack my microwave and other software in my house.

 

Don't be a Cracker you ruin it for everyone!

According to SB they chose

According to SB they chose the plain red cup because they were seeking a minimalist design this year to reflect the 'quiet and peaceful' feeling of the season. The design has nothing to do with anti-Christmas sentiments but some people will go out of their ways to invent reasons to get upset.

 

And yes, one reason people came to the US was to seek religious freedom and then they turned right around and started imposing their beliefs on others.

Blinkie by Mightnightmare and editted by me. Amazing egg animation by Rasvim1313. Toothless gif made by the awesome Reiraku (what would the OCs do without you). Blinkie by me (I forgot to change her eyecolour)

 

Catalyst, the Chemical Magician <3 Spicy and unpredictable, this nightfury creates a backstory of his own. Not that he'd share it. My OC drawn by Reiraku 

 

Banshee and Catalyst adorably playing together <3 Drawn by toothless572

 

Drawn by me. Description by the amazing Reiraku.

A sreech. A howl in the dark. A keening cry in the depths of the night. This was all that could be said about the destruction he left in his wake. A name? He had none. Was it important? A strong opponent. This was what he desired. Perhaps somewhere deep down inside, he simple longed to be stopped. But he yearned, and he fought. For what, it didn't matter. Alone as he had always been, he didn't care what became of those he defeated, only that they ended up dead after his passing. If they could not best him, they did not deserve to live. Even now, he stalked through darkness, tracking his next prey. The blood on his claws would not wash off, but he did not want it to. His soul was a cacophony of chaos, and his body an instrument of death.

Was it the result of some twisted past? Nay. He enjoyed the killing. He found sport in the shedding of blood. It was he that was twisted, cleaving a path of darkness into the future. He twisted his own past to justify his future. His mother, father, and the rest of the clutch into which he was born had been very caring. As he had grown, he found that, so too, did his resentment of them. When he grew large enough, he attacked his brothers and sisters, tasting their blood for the first time. And he relished the taste. His parents he made quick work of as well. It wasn't enough. He belonged to nothing and no one. He was beholden to none. He was free and he was dangerous.

 

No dragon was safe from his urges. He took no interest in the lives of others; only in their deaths. In this way he lived, fought, and grew, fighting and killing anything that appeared before him. Growing strong feasting on the thrill of each kill.

 

 

Storm Chasers are highly energetic speed-loving dragons. They love to swim in fast currents and fly with strong wind of the highlands. Storms are no problem to them. They follow the storm until it subsides, taking any food left from the destruction, which is sometimes from viking villages. Storm Chasers have incredible sensor that they could predict a storm coming and its path. 

Gender: Male

Personality: Naturally curious, likes to flick his tongue out when he's unsure of something. Gentle soul, loves belly rubs

Backstory: While out on a hunt with my dragons for wild forest animals, Catalyst and Banshee was playing as usual, and this time it seems they were play fighting each other. They look like a giant rolling ball of tumbleweed in the distance, if you ignore their playful dragon growls and nips. Shaking my head, I spent the next few hours collecting all the animal feathers and designs I needed, and on the way I caught a rabbit for dinner too. Just as I began walking back to my dragons, I heard a loud, angry growl in the distance that sounded nothing a small animal can make. I quickly rushed to where the sound was coming from, horrified to find that it was in the direction of where I last saw Banshee and Catalyst biting each other's ears (which was kind of cute, and made me stop for a while to watch them). Just as i got to the clearing, I saw Banshee and Catalyst in defensive stance, both growling at a male dragon that's semi-hidden in the bushes with what seem to be a bruised nostrel. They must've rolled into the bushes sometime during their fight and fell onto the dragon's nostrel, waking him up and surprising him! Approaching the dragon slowly, with my hands in front of me, I told my dragons to backdown as I tried to calm him down. After what seems like hours, the male dragon seemed to be calm enough to approach me with curiosity instead. I realized with a start that it was actually a Stormchaser, who seemed to have hurt it's legs somehow as it was slowly limping out of the bush. Carefully taking the shark pieces of rock from his foot (i wonder how he got hurt), the Stormchaser sniffed it's foot and tested it, before happily nudging my hand with it's head. I gave him a good scratch under his chin, and packed everything up ready to move back home when it seemed to follow us and didn't want to leave. Even as i rode Catalyst in the skies, the Stormchaser wasn't far behind, and I ended up adding him into out dragon family, and named him Peach. Design by ScarfyWings

 

Carnage, the Symbiote Night Fury. One of the rare nightfury species, he serves no one and nothing. Though I suspect he holds a much kinder side...

Drawn by Kyore. PIxel arts by Wutend Bonfire :D

 

This fiery night fury can summon and control all types of weather. Storm is from the deep south and will submit to no dragon or human. As she can control whether the skies are safe, even the alphas are afraid of her. Drawn by skypeoplephoenix732

 

"If you get any of what this skrill is dripping on you, you'll start seeing all kinds of things that aren't there." Toxin, the goofball that doesn't realize everybody knows she's stealing food from the pantry because there's pink goo everywhere she goes. Drawn by Reiraku

 

Tigger, the speed stinger. Not much for brains, but what he lacks in brains he makes it up with a large stomach. Drawn by Reiraku

 

Cinnamon Swirl, my MLP OC drawn by FireFlash

 

Ellie likes to enjoy the time she has. A very softhearted Banded Featherlure. Mdae by Amberleaf7

Hong Cha (or Red tea in chinese), the chinese dragon. Drawn by Glacecia

 

Todachi was only a hatchling when his clan was destroyed and killed by humans in front of his eyes. The only survivor of a clan of forest dwellers, he has to fend for himself since a young age. He's nothing special, but he has a desire to survive which drives him forward.  When a viking found him in a cave while wounded in an aereal fight, Todachi helped the human tend to their wounds even though he still harbors hatered for them, because on the inside he has a gentle heart. The human was forced away the day after, and he still refuses to let anyone inside his cave save for the wounded. You would be lucky to see this him with your very eyes, as his natural camuflage makes him blend perfectly to his surrondings. He says he's not currently interested in any SPAM at the moment. Drawn by Reiraku

 

Carna, the hybid offspring of the Nightfury and Skrill. Likes to eat smores and snuggles in the fireplace. Only appears occationally when hungry, so no one knows where she is most of the time. Drawn by Reiraku

 

Adopted from Siren-Spirit

Morvan, the Dark Dragon. No one knows where he came from, and not many wants to know in fear of being brutally mutilated. The crimson blood on his scales is enough to tell even the blind to not mess with him. He never shows weakness no matter the enemy, but they know that he has some extensive history before he became known and the Dark Dragon. The wings along already hold a much more heavier burden to tell...

 

Crystalis, the rare white nightfury. She had a warm and kindhearted personality, and loves to collect jewels of all kind. Her scars are a mystery that she never tells. Drawn by skrillfan

 

Skylar, the nightfury born with the lightning mark. Drawn by Scoubidous

 

Gender: Male

Personality: Brave, Serious, Loyal, Strong Fighter

Special Notes: Scar, Take with care

Name: Kenshin (do you get the reference? :D)

Bio: Once known as one of the deadly assassins of the old age, now Kenshin is a recluse on the journey to live a peaceful life. However, he encounters a lot of old enemies and rivals that haven't forgotten of his bloody past, but he will not give up the simple life.

Vintage, the classy as fudge skrill. Somebody give him a tophat! Drawn by Wutend Bonfire

 

Santalina, santa's little helper (or reindeer,

whatever floats your teaset). Drawn by Rasvim1313

Wait a minute, I thought this site was Tumblr because people here lose their crap over silly things and attack others for making simple mistakes.

It is just a stinking

It is just a stinking cup.

 

I'm a Christian.

 

Red is my favorite color.

 

So wouldn't I be "oppressing" myself everytime I use my favorite color?

 

I don't feel the slightest bit "oppressed" by their red cup.  All they were trying to do was to make a holiday cup, and someone said they didn't like it and the media made a mountain out of a ant hill.

I think the best part of this

I think the best part of this is that the 'boycotters' are going to Starbucks en masse and buying coffee under the name "Merry Christmas" and posting the photos all over the internet under some misguided assumption that making baristas write MC on the cups is somehow one-upping them and forcing them to 'put Christ back in Christmas'.

 

Like... guys. Guys, do you all not realize all you're doing is giving SB a ton of money and exposure, which is the complete opposite of a boycott?

 

There's so much second-hand embarrassment and stupidity over this and it makes the whole thing so much funnier.

Why is it so hard for you people to use the PM system? There is a reason why people have been telling you guys to use it, create a discussion group or an entire different forum for these topics. But please keep it off the SoD forum!
