Creature of the night

All right, guys...before I get started with this, I need to say something that's been bothering me for a few days, and if you don't agree with me, that's fine. But know that, no matter what you say, my opinion will [i]not[/i] change. It never [i]will[/i] change. I'll [i]ignore[/i] any comments I get in response to this matter. Perhaps it's because of the first forum environment I was raised in, but I believe their methods to be more sound. I'll make it short and sweet...
Regarding the recent uproar about jumping on new members that come off as perverts...
[b](Please skip ahead to the three hyphens if you don't want to hear this. AND I'M SERIOUS. I UNDERSTAND THE RISKS INVOLVED WITH SAYING WHAT I'M ABOUT TO SAY. WHATEVER PUNISHMENT I MAY RECEIVE FOR THIS, I DON'T CARE. THIS IS YOUR ONLY WARNING.)[/b]
I disagree [i]strongly[/i] with the general consensus of being polite to them and giving them the immediate benefit of the doubt when they present to us a stereotypical story that instantly triggers the perv alert. I just do. Not only that, but sometimes, I feel there's enough proof in their behavior and name [i]alone[/i] to merit my words. I know that flaming isn't okay, I know I can get negative reputation for it, but, damn it, when I see enough proof to call BS, I'm willing to speak out. You don't have to listen to me, you don't have to care, and you don't have to remind me that [i]what I'm saying can be hurtful to a new member who may be telling the truth.[/i]
When it's practically [i]obvious to me[/i] that they're lying through their teeth, and when I see people believing them, I have the right to speak out.
Seeing as my opinion isn't welcome, however, I'm no longer going to do that. Nope. Not at all. Never again. I'll leave you all to whatever fantasy world you want to live in here. Assuming good faith may be what everyone wants on here, but on other forums, that's simply non-existent, and I've learned to accept that state of assuming practicality and logic above possibility and faith. I don't [i]care[/i] that there's the possibility of a story being true. In the case where I spoke out, I'm almost [i]positive[/i] my reasons for doing so were just. Bringing to attention the greater possibility that a story is false is a high priority for me. Guess that priority's getting dropped from now on, though.
But, ehh. [shrugs] If the mods want to handle this, and if they don't want hostility from any of the members, then I'll oblige. I'm naturally inclined to jump, and I know flaming isn't allowed, but I sometimes think I put in enough thought to understand what it is I'm doing before I do it. And I should also note that, where I came from before ADISC, calling BS and flaming those who dared spread it was an act endorsed by even the [i]mods[/i], if I'm right to assume so. Sounds barbaric, I know, but that's how I was raised in the infantilism community, and that's how I'll be for the rest of my stay.
Again, whatever my punishment for saying this is, I'll gladly accept it, be it a warning, a temporary ban, or a permanent ban. I'm just saying what needs to be said, and I don't care [i]who[/i] I may offend with this.
Consider this the last time I speak up in regards to this matter.
To completely turn away from my little rant up there, I'm wondering if anyone else is the same as me in one respect. So I pose a simple question to artists and writers alike: is there a particular time of day where your creativity shines more than other times?
As the title of this entry may suggest, I seem to write a lot better, both in terms of my willingness to create and my ability to type properly and grammatically, at night. To put it simply, I am [i]not[/i] a morning person. XD There are two types of tiredness: early morning (4 A.M. - 10 A.M.) and late evening (10 P.M. - 3 A.M.). When I'm tired in the latter way, the inspiration to write just [i]flows[/i] from every pore of my body, like blood gushes from the wounds of a Chuck-Norris-kick victim. When I'm tired in the former way, I could be satisfied with hitting a few random keys (ufehijmfvdcjxasd[u9qweef) and call it a masterpiece.
That, my fair children, is why I don't write in the morning. :D
What are some of the time-frames where you experience something similar to these feelings? Or do you feel you can draw or write at any time of the day with little to no trouble or blockage of the creative flow?
