Nornagest explains moe:
"You know the protective feeling you get when you look at something tragically cute, like a kitten with a broken leg? A sort of urge to hug it and make it all better?

"No offense, but I think everyone using the phrase "serious business" should be tasered. I've never seen it used in a way that didn't come down to a belittling attempt to stifle discussion and replace it with cat pictures."
"Leave me out of this."
"Would it be in bad taste to claim that I'm dying of Münchausen's syndrome?"
"You're giving me the oddest urge to pull out my eyes and throw them at the screen."
"Meet. Fitting. Appropriate. Help appropriate for him.

"If I wanted to devote a significant portion of my online life to pure complaining, I'd join Something Awful."
"Well, that bathtub of delicious tears isn't going to fill itself."
