C'mon, guys! Turn those frowns upside down - a little horseplaying can't be that detrimental to anyone's level of intelligence (and besides - your main stat is dexterity, so you shouldn't be impacted at all).
We also know for a a fact that the usual suspects are very nice and competent people, with whom we've enjoyed playing and chatting, under different circumstances. With nothing better to do at the moment, there shouldn't be much harm in spreading a little silliness across the boards. This is a game forum, after all - why so serious?!
