re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Foodblog, and Forum Discussion

Timmay,
I frequently disagree with epipen/victor, but I don't think they are willfully trolling in the way someone like TuT does. Victor often times goes overboard playing devil's advocate and has become somewhat of a caricature of himself, but that isn't something mods should be stopping. For epipen every post where he mentions how other sports sucks, everything involving ke$ha ... probably every post he made with a $ in it.

Edit: Since there were two possibly serious responses to my previous post, I was being obtuse.

It's some pretty awful projection to say that people who dislike some of their posts "hate" them. I don't hate them, in fact in the case of e-peen and Victor at times find them highly entertaining (TuT I am indifferent on and basically just skip over his posts, which presumably contributes to my indifference). What they think of me or their childish responses to me doesn't change the fact that they can be funny.

Yeah obv "hate" is a very strong word and wasn't meant literally, my bad.

It's pretty sick how if anyone criticizes victor, epeen, or tut the skypetard clown car shows up soon afterwards.

I actually feel slightly bad for victor that he gets lumped in with those other two.

People can seriously stop blaming Skype and/or TZ for this nonsense anytime now. It's not the "skypetards", nor TZs fault that your vagina is hurt very easily.

Like I said, I personally take responsibility for the Skype crew being the way it is. I will do my best to ensure those attitudes taken by the people in the chat do not leak into this forum.

re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Foodblog, and Forum Discussion

There are like 5-7 posters I assume I'd genuinely dislike as people based on their posting on this forum. It makes me happy that these people think I've ruined "their" forum. I'm going to keep doing this for as long as I post here as it amuses me and that's all I really care about. I really don't think it's a forum problem since it's a small minority of posters being affected and I can interact with most people just fine. The discussion in this thread couldn't have been any more rewarding.

I have no motivation to make sure I'm right in all of my posts or to make sure they're witty or whatever you people want them to be. If you guys want that, can't you just stick to The Wire thread and discuss the flaws in S5 for the thousandth time with the same people over and over again. That should fill your, "I need to say smart things so people think I'm smart" quota for a while.

As for the mods, I think they usually get too much hate but think it's funny when they use the threat of banning as a way to try to reach some silly goal for the forum. I'd much rather be banned than have you say, "do this or you'll be banned." Seth is the worst about this. His threat to ban ratio is pretty high. It's the perfect way for him to show his power while being able to avoid everyone getting too mad at him for banning a bunch of people.

I'm not going to claim I completely don't care what people think about me. Everyone here does. I definitely don't care what the people who hate me think though, so carry on.

Lastly, lol TSC. I think it's funny that you can't gain acceptance to a single SE social circle despite your massive amounts of posts in many different threads. The constant TZ bashing seems like a last-ditch effort to try get the invite to the nath/triumph/pudge crew. The problem with that though, is that while they have their flaws, they're still intelligent and capable of having value on the forum, so you don't really fit in with them either.

Epi definitely has his own style btw. His recent thing is that he makes tons of posts he doesn't actually believe to get a rise out of people. I guess it doesn't bother me since it's so easy to notice but I guess others struggle with this? I mean today he said Pierce>Kobe and it spawned like hours of discussion that he wasn't even a part of. I think he's pretty funny most of the time though. I don't know why people get so mad over the Ke$ha stuff.

Thank you dye for taking full responsibility for the times where I post less than stellar.

I will strive to post better and make SE an improved forum.

You are truly an inspiration to me and the rest of the Skype crew.

Good stuff bitchface but completely ignoring fact that I left the the Skype room because it was terrible. Also sick brag about being part of an online social circle. Very very very envious of that.

Are you sure TSC doesn't fit into the soccer thread social circle. I remember there being a soccer skype crew that he was a part of.

Also, TuT and TSC to my knowledge had a great music draft together. Why the disconnect?

It's pretty sick how as soon as someone criticizes TSC he instantly shows up afterward.

I was actually here already. Did your online social circle notify you that you were being bad mouthed?

This "online social circle" talk coming from a guy with 60k+ posts on an internet message board is pretty awesome. I'm guessing you tried a real life social circle and didn't fit in there either.

Thanks, man.

Although I'm a mod at the new incarnation of Dyestat and I don't envy your jobs whatsoever.

I like that TuT thinks he vacillates between a p4k-contrarian and a Socratic gadfly when he is really Neil Hamburger with Dane Cook's sense of humour.
