That's where I was headed if we use that standard then male and female tend run fairly close, I rarely see ugly art period.
Yep its possible to be a bad rules lawyer, I had one which is what pushed me to learn 3.5 nearly backwards and forwards. I am fine with a guy who can quickly clarify a rule at the table. I do not need an extended argument mid session.
If I tank in PF that usually means I made a fighter with whip feats and look for bottle necks. As long as I can disarm/grapple/trip/re-position what I am fighting I can keep squishes alive.

So you claim the argument is never made and then make the exact argument in the exact same post?

So again the fact that you feel fluff is there to be ignored where as other do not should say something to you, IMHO.
That was someone being superior. And that was what I responded too. Yes you can monkey around with the engine and tweak it. Hell I run Kirthfinder over Pathfinder any chance I can, but I still have an engine. You can't actually play a game without some form of mechanics and rules, you can't actually play an RPG without it either. But when the character is all said and done it will run with a new paint job. If I get told to build a character for Rise of the Runelords, and show up and we are now running in Eberron and the DM is writing his own adventures but still using the PF rules set I'm probably gonna be just fine outside of a handful of fluff things that might not work in the setting. But if you say we are running a PF in Ebberon and I show up to 5E the fluff might be fine 100% but I have to rebuild the engine before it'll go.

[sarcasm] Wouldn't that be statistics block, not stat block then if we want to use actual terms?
It may tie back to background such as growing up with an uncle who called himself a grease monkey (a mechanic for anyone who doesn't know) . But like Jiggy I have never heard ____ monkey used derogatorily. I have used monkey used that way just not with a qualifier.
Skill monkey annoys me and should be retired from RPG parlance as one of those terms of derogation which have been discussed so much recently on these boards.
I have never seen that one in a bad light personally, hell in my home group it's usually the second dibs, right after arcane caster. And I do mean someone will yell out "I'm the skill monkey"

The problem is who is defining those terms, and how are they defining them. If I am both am i allowed or banned? What level of optimization is the cutoff before I am too Rollplay and not enough Roleplay?
Breathe deeply and let it flow through you and then your head will become like the desk and pass through to the other side, or just hit it harder.
Based on bolding I would say you should be good if you can fire through the hole aiming through should be no problem.
What's different between SKR's views and the FAQ in regards to Take 10?
Don't have a handy quote but I believe SKR had said that the check itself couldn't prevent take 10. So a jump over a lava pit was allowed even though lava was hot and dangerous. However if you were being shot at no luck. (I would have said no dice but you actually need them for this)

Yes there are bad ways to play
The person who came to the table with a wonderful backstory and vision that required her character to cower from any combat, and choose only spells that would help her escape a fight. Yes playing a pacifist is fine but not if you are a detriment to your fellow adventurers. After a while she learned how great buffs or de-buffs could be eventually preventing some combat all together.
The guy who wanted to be the party face but thought he should be able to get by on words alone without ever picking up a dice. After a bit he left the group not really happy with us that we needed the dice to tell the story.
Or the guy who had to be the best he found every internet build and pushed to the max till he was the only one doing anything. We removed him from the group for a while when he came back he was calmer and understood everyone wanted to play.
There is no One Right, True Way to rollplay.
But there are wrong ways. And our responsibility as rollplayers, however we approach the game, is to teach those who make characters who get people killed, who only want to tell a story, or optimize to the point of no return to learn how to be better players.
Still not seeing the exclusivity here. I can in the middle of combat get into my characters head mocking and taunting my foes as they fall around me, choosing my targets as a cunning swordsman would calling out those that hang back with bows as cowards. All without a dice being rolled or needed beyond each swing of my blade.
I can usually manage if someone or even two people miss a game. We just say they wandered off into another area. The running joke is that they have jury duty.
*shudder* Arcane disciples of the god of law popping up and spiriting party members back to major cities for jury duty out of nowwhere. Time to add that to my homebrew.
It's only 312 people wanting to know. I'm sure there's more pressing matters.
5ft steps into/out of grease and do you actually have to move to makes saves verse pit spells will one of these newcomers power to the top or will one of our old contenders such as Bardic masterpieces or 4-armed PC's and multiweapon fighting take the PDT next time on FAQ!!!!!
Only the ones specifically called out to be allowed so.
Pizza Break!: The party has done something so odd and so unexpected that the DM needs at least 30mins of time to reprep everything following the incident.
Based on a true story of a goblin who used a wish he had been granted to shift the alignment of a major evil NPC to good. Thus leaving the horde of orcs no real leadership and averting a major war.
Don't know about The Blue Girl but I know of La Blue Girl and that's all I am saying about that.

You have the right of it. It's the fact that you can claim offense even on someone else behalf, and if the subject matter is right then a bandwagon can follow causing a cascade of offense until it is silenced even if no-one was actually offended to start with.
I swear the more of your post I read and knowing you are from the same smallish state really makes me wonder if we either have played together or at least have some of the same players.
Let's combine both shirts "You can't just Take 10 on things and hope for a better outcome'
You would think that however years of retail work have shown me people do not have that filter you believe they posses. Most yes wouldn't come in and act anything short of cordial, but a far larger percentage than you might think will come in and before you even have spoken to them are already in a-hole mode from the start simply because their day has gone awry in some way.
