I think words like "you FAIL" and "this is full of win" are lamer than anything ever. Strange thing is, everyone does it, because you think it's funny or cool for some reason. It's not either of them. It's just dumb and stupid.

I don't do it. (I do what I want, do what I feel like)

But hey, fads exist on the Internet just as much as they exist anywhere else. I think it's a little lame to jump on every expression bandwagon, but my friends do it, so I don't say anything about it cause it's just not worth it. And often, it can even be pretty entertaining. You don't see me winning any BBS popularity contests due to my posting style.

Amen! If people are gonna go into a thread just to type stuff like "OMFG! THIS THREAD IS UBERFAIL PWN PWN PWN LMFAOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!! then why would they bother typing anything in the first place?

Because it is an accepted phrase on the internets to reflect your feelings towards something, or someone are either good, or bad. In the right context in can be pretty funny, and you're as big a moron as the thread starter if you think telling us you don't like it is going to make the slightest bit of fucking difference.

mrconeman
01-07-2007, 02:35 PM
Oh, BELIEVE me! I did not expect it to make a single difference!!! I just think people shouldn't bother posting anything at all if they don't like a certain thread! It only keeps the thread higher up on the first page and therefore makes the thread more and more "win!" Ironic, ain't it?

I didn't say I didn't like this thread anywhere, I said fail, as in you. You fucking failure.
In fact, I thought this thread was a nice opportunity to point out your IMMENSE stupidity, so I did. There.

Personally, I just hate the term "fail", along with "tryhard". I seriously just can't fathom why people feel the need to say that. If a thread is bad, either come up with a creative and/or interesting way to criticize it or just ignore it. Don't just run around going "fail!" as if some force has deemed you the arbiter of quality for the board.

This is a very valid point that zagmen chose to ignore.


saying "win" is full of win. saying "fail" is full of fail.

I really don't have an opinion on either, because who gives a fuck? lol at the idea that it's stupid to go in a thread just say "fail"... but that it's not stupid to make an ENTIRE THREAD about something you don't like. Why would you even write anything at all if you don't like it?

Why would you even write anything at all if you don't like it?Because part of the point I was making was not merely that it was negative, but that it's an uncreative, uninteresting form of negativity; if you're going to insult someone or something, you should at least try to be creative and/or interesting with it. In fact, I'm pretty sure I used those exact adjective in my first post. Also, do you really not see the difference between starting a discussion topic and insulting someone?

And Ninth - to be perfectly honest, I don't. I'm sure a large part of it comes from the way I read the forums - I skim through topics and skip over posts that look uninteresting, unconsciously filtering out much of the banal. I just don't see the point in going after people who aren't being intentionally annoying or combative. And I don't even know how I'd define the term or identify anyone acting in that manner.

I wasn't referring to your post at ALL with mine... I was referring to the initial posting of this thread. I can understand the point of view of liking or disliking the use of "fail" or "tryhard"... my point was that, this guy is bitching about people making posts like "this thread fails", because he doesn't think it's logical to post at ALL if you don't like something. Well, he made an entire thread that said nothing more than, "I think these phrases suck". He might as well have said, "These phrases fail". Same thing, different words.

Tryhard is my favourite insult by far. It makes people so defensive and it's fun to watch them telling that they're not.
Personally, I find those who think in the "hey, everyone's calling Maria stupid cunt. if I do that they'll love me" way more annoying than lodat and people like him. Posting on GOD and mocking with people no reason, picking random threads and making one of those god thread of the week, insulting the ones who are not liked, using the inside jokes that came out when they weren't around are the things I call "trying hard" and the ones who do them automaticly become tryhard.

I wouldn't say it's obvious at all, considering about 99% of Mota Boy's threads are exaaaactly the king of thing she was talking about. Not only is it an easy mistake to make, but it's hard for me to buy that she's "being misunderstood" when she herself often admits that she has trouble communicating clearly and that's why these kinds of things come up.

I'm TOTALLY with you on this one. The ones I hate most are the Linda bashers who have no reason to even dislike her because she's never ever been mean to them; the ones that just jump on the bandwagon when they see the people she HAS had problems with being mean to her. It's just plain stupid.

Considering this thread alone, and the fact that Mota and llamas never talked about his threads before (which I assume they havent) it IS obvious she was talking about this specific thread. Also, I am quite sure she meant that there is a difference between blindly stating that you dont like something in a short thread (like this one) than making thread and explaining in detail (and in a witty and humorous way) why something bothers you, like Mota sometimes does. But why dont we ask her herself once she's back on?

She might admit that she has trouble communicating, and maybe she might, but I myself have noticed that people sometimes try to misunderstand her intentionally in order to start something with her. I dont mean Mota, but he made me notice it yet again.

I just really, wholeheartly disagree with you.

I did, in fact, mean this particular thread, which I cleared up in my second post.

There are people here who seem to sometimes try to not understand me (not referring to Mota). In real life, I just feel like a lot of people straight up don't try to understand. As time goes on, I realize that there are people who NEVER have trouble understanding me, and then people who don't try for whatever reason get confused all the time.

I definitely wasn't even remotely going against your point, though. Not at all. I was merely annoyed with the creator of this thread for being very hypocritical.

Reading things over after Nina's point shows that I and others were wrong in this case. Bri was definitely talking about the creator of this thread, and it's a little more obvious but I still see where the misunderstanding came up.

But...people misunderstanding her on purpose? That's just the ultimate cop-out/run away from accountability. And there's nothing to be gained from misunderstanding someone on purpose.

Hmmm... I can recall being accused of misunderstanding on purpose a little while ago. Seems Nina has a thing with that. (And I shouldn't bring it up, but it kinda annoyed me at the time).

But hindsight is 20/20. Once you've been explained the intended meaning of something, it seems like it should have been completely obvious once you read it again. But it isn't always crystal clear upon first read (and I assume most people don't read every post extremely critically when they are trying to scan a vast number of posts).

All of the people on here that I get along with, like Nina. Nina is generally a sweetheart, to most people. But she makes her fair share of harsh, biting comments (maybe I find them particularly harsh because of the way they are expressed?). And more than a negligible amount of these comments have been directed at me. Naturally, I can't help but get my digs in back. It's hard to be extremely nice to somebody when you feel that they don't really like you and tend to disagree with many of the things you say. Her comment towards Mota in this thread was somewhat nasty, not in the "misunderstanding on purpose" context, but in the "oh my god, I can't believe you didn't understand, it was SO OBVIOUS" way. Then when Ricky brought up the misunderstanding thing, I couldn't help but respond due to past bitterness.

Anyway, point is, I'm not just starting shit to start shit. It's the product of a certain amount of previous interaction, which most people probably have not noticed. I think we are just the type of people that both won't hesitate to speak our minds and too often disagree, and there is a personality clash... or something.

And now I'm going to PM Nina.

Wait, are you implying the only valid reason for disliking someone is if they've been mean to you? When did you become a teenage girl, Ricky?

It's perfectly fine for new people to jump in for a variety of reasons. Like if they just can't stand to watch her ridiculous arguments and remain silent. You don't need to have a previous problem with someone to decide they are deserving of being shat on.

My bad, I should have been clearer. What I meant was that people jump in even when this:

Isn't even the case. People who start shit with her out of nowhere, then later admit that they were just going with the flow. I remember it happening at least three times and it all just made such little sense to me.

EDIT: Wait wait wait my friends...too much whining and bitching lately?! I know someone's going to reply to this by saying "B-b-b-b-but it's more lately!", but come ON people. I can only speak for the past two years I've been here, but pointless whining and bitching has always always ALWAYS been a staple of the board and has always been present in shocking abundance and in pretty much every thread from General Chat through Politics all the way up to General Offspring Discussion.

Whether it's being misunderstood (what people in this thread are concerned with), stupid racist babblings or whatever random thing happened during your day, the shit is a staple.

Maybe so. But I've (yes subjectively) noticed more of it lately, and noticed less of what I feel to be more worthwhile content. I also have less patience for it than I used to, and that's perhaps the biggest thing for me. That's just my feelings on the matter though.
