actually no i didn't see any of it until today AFTER the stuff was locked up. i don't go into every freaking thread on the board. i generally stay out of the political threads, and the threads that clearly are threads that are just made to start shit. Only reason i read any of it today was A) i was bored, and B) seeing like 4 threads locked in one morning is kind of extreme.
And i've been on the receiving end of shit on this board, so don't try to tell me how i need to respond to things.
I'm not trying to lump you into any category, so if only number 1 applies to you, I gave you an honest answer.
But just look at Thunderstorm and guys like him here now. I show up in the thread and suddenly he tones down his "humor," looks at him feet and tries to come across as relatively reasonable. He should
be hesitant to act like he usually
does, because now he knows there would be a cost. I mean, it's not great behavior, but it's manageable.
I'll let you in on a poorly kept secret. I know I'm a shitty poster. I post in patches and I'm too cautious about privacy to share anything personal about myself online or really connect with anyone outside of the board. I intentionally don't join any groups. I can also be a dick that most people wouldn't notice gone. But I do try not to be a dick to people who don't deserve it. I like the show Dexter.
The ballbusters on the board know that I'm not a mark. They don't even really
try anymore. But yes, one way to make me care
is for shitty posters to make this place worse for the classiest posters we have. Eli Katz, LobsterJ, Keb etc. are fucking amazing. The black posters here all just happen to be in like the top 10 funnest posters we have. This place is so fucking lucky to have them. They're the only reason I come here. Each of them are worth a million jackasses trying to boost their self-esteem with nasty, derivative humor here. For full disclosure, we're lucky to have you here too, and as "uncool" as it makes me sound, I would also care if it became someone's hobby to humiliate you as a "joke."
So that's my story. Yes, I do amuse myself when I get under the skin of ballbusters, but, like I said, I'm not perfect.
