You are now hearing this
noise in your head.





I've posted on these dumbassed forums for like 20 loving years and I have never used the ignore poster feature more than I have in the past year.

I don't know whether it's that there are more bad faith posters I don't want to read anymore or if I'm just finally becoming an old, bitter jerk, but I have been worn down by people saying really stupid poo poo and derailing threads for pages with their idiot drama.

The idea that we should just give people the benefit of the doubt around here doesn't make any sense to me. We deal with people like Mel and Gonzo all the fuckin' time, you know? Make good or funny posts and people won't yell at you and run you out.

Or, like me, be unremarkable enough to not get run out.

It didn't occur to me until reading this but same. Half my ignore list is from here over the past year and is people who just won't let something go and drag arguments out way past expiration. Posters just dropping something once there's an obvious stalemate instead of continuing to argue with them would go a long way.

I agree that I feel most people are more than capable of seeing the difference between somebody asking genuine questions and somebody coming in to try and troll or to say some horrible poo poo.
I couldn't disagree more. The entire reason the world is in the state its in is bigots and fascists are masters of weaponizing plausible deniability and even the loving news media takes their stated reasons for poo poo at face value, so what hope do posters and mods on a comedy forum have?

I want to grab a new Avatar, is the ownership structure resolved such that I won't feel bad for doing this? Weird question, but it's weird times.

Yeah, at the moment Lowtax still owns the forums and any money spent on it still goes to him, so look at workarounds for the time being like this one.

i called mekchu and brut names to their face in the sumo thread and basically dared them to use their buttons on me and they, being adults, just decided to drop it instead and the thread resumed course unaided. then jerusalem appeared and used buttons on me and it's probably the hardest i've laughed in here since oildome.

whatever is currently happening is producing the best place to post about this poo poo on the internet so keep on keeping on. sincerely, thank you all for your unpaid work.

Jerusalem got involved because you were throwing a hissy fit after Brut asked another poster to chill with a derail, you came along and got antagonistic about Brut's request, and when I told you to shut up with the whining you were doing you claimed you were being ganged up on and were being attacked. You were genuinely throwing a hissy fit over nothing and after Jerusalem got asked if more than a 6er was warranted he gave you a week for yet another meltdown of yours. I'm replying to this 4 pages and a week or two later because you have a really weird perspective on what went down and why.

A group of very serious old men sat around and discussed whether or not I had the requisite dignity and grace of a grand champion.
