Bwahahaha! I love you all.

The thing is...I did the same thing this guy did when I first joined! But I also posted a lovely link to Kikko-man and they gave me a very nice little warning about introductory threads and said Kikkoman was pretty awesome so I'm all forgiven. OH OH OH! Best part, I didn't act like an utter hypocritcal asshole like this guy! I just said, "Okay!" AND READ THE RULES AGAIN SINCE I OBVIOUSLY DID NOT READ IT CLOSE ENOUGH! Oh how novel!
Seriously, this sums it up pretty well:



Just to let you know, while not on this board I've been flamed in the past. That wasn't flaming, no where close. You pussy. :D

I've said it before, and I'll say it again:  even though many of us are polar opposites of one another, nothing brings our community together quite like a ripe target for mockery. :P

I only have two things to say:

1: Eusis is gay.

2: I have no idea what's going on.

I've been saving this since the last time something like this happened:




I seem to remember that thread becoming 'Topic of the Week', too! :P


But seriously, if you join any community and bitch and whine about established rules that 500+ members have no trouble abiding by, then you get all you deserve. I would honestly consider this thread to be getting off lightly, as the vast majority of posts here have been more along the lines of helpful advice than actual flaming.

Personally speaking, the fact that there is no dedicated introduuctory forums and no introductory threads elsewhere on the boards would've been a pretty big fucking clue that this isn't the sorta place where people post threads that begin with "Hi... blah, blah, blah, ZOMG i lieks t3h final fantaseeee do u?" or words to that effect. Like the rules say, introduce yourself through meaningful discussion and relevent, informed opinions.

Kinda like this thread. Granted, he opens by saying he's new to the boards, but pretty quickly moves on to a discussion that ends up being two pages long.

1) No he's not. He's a woman.

Right, Eusina?

I thought we'd already established that the "Internet was a serious business", and this thread is slowly degenerating into spam. I'm glad I didn't read the other 3 pages... There is a certain amount of sarcasm in everything i've just said, by the way.

Anyway, I'll get to the point I was going to make here. I heard that websites like Ctrl-Alt-Del have several hundred thousand members (that could be an exaggeration) , consisting of most of the internet nerdy percentage of the gaming population around the world (its true, you'd have to be the kind of person who spends a hell of a lot of time on the internet to be on forums with that kind of popularity). If you can't imagine 350-odd members, try a few thousand...

I like the relatively close-knit community of this website, as it means you start to know the regulars if you post as often as I do. On Ctrl-Alt-Del, it would be impossible to know anybody on the whole forum, unless you posted about say 500 posts a day. (that's both sarcasm and exaggeration  lol)

Yeah. You guys fucking suck. No wonder there are less than 500 members. What the fuck? You guys are the worst message board members in history. I hope you all fucking choke. Fuck you. I hate you. EMO 4EVER.









P.S. Fuck Metal. That's right DR. Fuck Metal and fuck you. Potato.

All right, we are going to use a fan brush here and uh why don't you take some hunter green and we are going to put a happy little bush right down over here in the corner there and that'll just be our little secret and if you tell anyone that that bush is there I will come to your house and I will cut you.

I knew I liked you for a reason....oh yeah....you were one of the first new guys to come around and not be beligerant or get all sad and EMO when I flame you the first time. And now? You've survived the initial flames, and now you're part of a great and terrible, dysfuntional family.

Your words speak hate, yet your actions speak LOVE =^.^=

EDIT:  This thread is all shades of awesome.  I should make some sort of Hall of Legends where the most awesome of awesome threads are archived for all time...or the next board crash. :P

I gotta say, when I first saw there was a new member called ZE GRAND MASTER I thought 'shit, he'll be a dick.'

But I was wrong!

I think it everytime I see the name. It always takes me about three seconds before I realize that he's been around for a while, and that I have no issues with him....

Whatever. Anyway, it still amazes me every time people like this come around, get some relatively friendly advice and bitch to no end. I mean, christ, get over it. My first post involved some bullshit sarcastic comment, completely ignoring the fact that I made absolutely no indication that I was being sarcastic. I was torn into. I deserved it. And it was a whole hell of a lot worse than anything that's been said here. And you know what? I got the fuck over it. I was thirteen. (This was three years ago, for the record.)

Why is it that I could get over it as a little preteen bitch, and ninety percent of the population can't?

Exactly why Gamefaqs is pathetic. Everybody's name on messageboards of forums or futaba boards with excruciating numbers of members is like wading through a group of people during a rock concert. You remember people's faces or names for about 10 minutes then you'll forget you ever recognized their existence.

Yes, I am just repeating exactly what you already typed. I don't know why either...
