I work in an office with all the guys on one floor, and we rip on each other the time.
anything goes, we are a mixture of 3Irish, 1english, 1Brazilian, 1Romanian, 1Italian.
oldest being 35, youngest being 26.
we even throw the odd racial slur in, but its all in good nature.
we hide each others stuff, Change desk top backgrounds to such things as granny porn.
gets us through the day

I was thinking more about this.
It's interesting that this discussion appears on one of the most inclusive and open-hearted lifting forums. When it comes to personal flaming and insults, well it's just not done on here. The most any member gets on here is a bit of extremely gentle satire.
For comparison, I used to post a lot on sugdenbarbell.co.uk, where there is a culture of extreme piss-taking, and really some incredibly profane and grotesque insults are bandied around. A lot of it is incredibly funny, but it has a bit of a frontier-town feel. Or worse, there's bodybuilding.com, in which each member spends 83% of his time calling all the other members phaggots and/or retards.
So, we're on a thread extolling the virtues of mannish no-holds-barred banter, but we choose to spend our time in an environment where that doesn't happen. This isn't a criticism of the forum - in fact I like that calm respectful atmosphere. It's a curiosity though, to my mind.

Giving crap is a bit of an art form that has to be done in moderation at the right time. If you just constantly talk smack and worse, do it with no finesse it just makes you seem like a jerk.
Their is a fineline betwing being the guy you don't want to screw up around for fear of being properly called out, or just be an asshole.
