Can you answer a question with a question?

were you asking seriously, or just rhetorically?

Why, do you think it's lost its irresistable charm?

Won't it just get resurrected by an overzealous newbie, anyway?

Will this newbie be a brilliant sort who has figured out the game on his own, or only an overly intellectual hack who thinks Tom Stoppard's <i>Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead</i> is the best thing since the <i>Orestia</i>?

Oh, come now, isn't it absurd to suggest that anyone, however brilliant, could possibly discern the rules of the game just by looking at this thread?

Is this indeed a "game" we are playing, as opposed to a mental exercise? If this is a game, are there explicit rules or assumed rules? If the rules are assumed, how does the community of "players" educate with the purpose of forcing conformity with redard to one who tests the boundaries (assuming, of course, that the community has the ability to enforce any such violation of its proscriptions)? Just because I ask a whole bunch of questions before waiting for an answer, does that make my questions rhetorical?

And how many people (I know I didn't) bothered to actually read all the way through the <i>Orestia</I>? Isn't Aeschylus boring as all get-out?

Why would anyone want to read it in the first place, when there are such attractive alternatives as trying to fit your penis in an electric pencil sharpener?

Would the result be different if the choice was between <i>The Libation Bearers</i> and hand-cranking one's sensitive bits in a sharpener?

Don't I have the ability to enforce the something something?

Isn't it obvious that you don't?

are you talking about the inability to control the minds of men, or the sheer arbitrary nature of the forum's functionality?
