    This is a general interest linguistics and semantics
    question. How would you define, beyond the mere
    dictionary entry, someone who is unafraid and
    pioneering?

    Someone who truly possessed those traits would probably deny having them (they do sound trite and politically correct in any event).

    I prefer 'fearless' to 'unafraid' and 'trailblazer' to 'pioneer.'

    A fearless trailblazer; someone who boldly goes into the unknown, setting the path for others to follow. Someone who is not held back or inhibited by the mockery of others, who lack the courage of his conviction.

    Or to quote Harold Rosenberg, a member of the "herd of independent minds."

    Someone who was "unafraid and pioneering" would not ignore direct on topic questions to their thread OPs; and especially not blame the ignorance on their computer mouse telling them to do it.

    These are very good points, gang.

    How can someone be unafraid and pioneering in the world
    of online forums? Something tells me that RHP is in need of
    someone with those characteristics to take us to the next
    level as a community.

    painful self flagellation,
    in the subway station,
    while yer mum looks at you like yer a mutant...
    they hang you by yer heels,
    and ask you how it feels,
    while the pope claps his hands in amusement...

    pioneering enuff???

    "pioneer: noun. pi·o·neer \ˌpī-ə-ˈnir\

    : a person who helps create or develop new ideas, methods, etc.

    : someone who is one of the first people to move to and live in a new area."

    Captain Kirk (actor William Shatner) is apparently afraid of flying.

    The dream is over.

    Stay away from me, you pioneering and unafraid pervert.

    We all know you can copy paste and spam, but can you have
    one single original thought? Didn't think so.

    Why do you feel that copy/pasting forum guidelines at people is in someway intimidating?
