    Does it make you feel better to act so morally superior? Does it fulfill some need of yours to feel like you are taking some moral high ground over a silly game on the internet? Because, frankly, it's seriously off-putting and completely unnecessary.

    My humblest apologies.....sorry it made you uncomfortable.....I don't mean to act "morally superior" but do have to live with myself. Maybe you shouldn't take my suggestion not to steal so seriously? How is choosing not to steal being morally superior?

    However, I don't think thou shall not steal was a suggestion when it was given to Moses. Is this part of "The new normal"?

    Feel free to take my carrots.....I'd give them you you anyway.

    I took the carrots because the whole point of the game is to obtain carrots, steal them off others, steal them off the carrot bandit and then when you have lots of carrots you buy gifts.
    By golly problem solved....I missed the whole point of the game....and to think, I thought they were used them to make other people feel good.

    So, I guess you're stealing them to buy gifts?

    Hmm and what exactly makes you think we believe anything from your perticular religion? Or infact want anything to do with it?

    I've been there, delt with the whole smug, arrogant "holier than thou" types there is a very good reason I no longer go to church despite being brought up Roman catholic.

    You didn't make me uncomfortable. Far from it, actually. I do not, however, appreciate your implications that those who choose to participate in this game (yes, myself included) are somehow morally corrupt. I have to live with myself, as well, and guess what? I have absolutely no problems sleeping at night because I "stole" fictitious carrots on an Internet forum. If you read my first post on this thread, I don't play the game because I can't on my phone.

    And please don't bring religion into this. There are members on this forum who are not religious or may not have the same beliefs as you (or I) and may take offense.

    The irony of your attempt at sarcasm is that there is no other way to obtain carrots than to steal them.

    Just because you choose not to play the game, don't try to peddle your views on others.

    Yup I have been duely offended!

    Moral values entirely depend on your situation in life. Gunslinger has obviously had the luxury to be able to afford those morals, there are thousands in this world who's daily choice comes down to theft or starvation, I know where my morals woud sit in that situation

    Basically, when the carrots and basket pop up on your screen or the notice at the top of the screen pops up when you open a thread asking if you want to steal someone's carrots, you can drag the carrots to the basket or try to steal other member's carrots. You can then go into the carrot kitchen (the link is up top by your User CP link) and "buy" stuff to give to other members.
