Out of kindness to the mods, (assuming you mean a KBoards fight) I'll vote "no" on this one.  ;) Truth to tell, I enjoy watching a good fight but participating is rarely worth the energy and soured mood that follows.

I meant to say: should I start a flight, but don't quite have enough money to set up my own squadron....yet.

Mostly when I start fights, it's when I'm mired down drafting. Even if I don't keep the scene, it gets things rolling again.

So, yes, if you're stuck, you should definitely start a fight. :)

Nah. Internet drama happens even when everyone is trying to get along, so why show up to the debate with matches and gasoline?

Unless you're talking about good pulpy fiction. What was it, every 50 pages something or somebody needs to be shot, stabbed, set on fire, hit, or drowned?

Every 50 pages? I wouldn't have any characters left. Wait, that might just work.

Thank you, Mercia. But out of compassion for the mods, I'll get my snout fully inserted back into my latest book project and leave the fighting to those who think they can handle Betsy's fearsome prod hammer thingy.
