More bashing of the n00bs.

Edit: If you can't put constructive comments in a thread which is specifically designed to be constructive, do yourself the favour, and not put your fingers on your keyboard. All you do is show yourself to be unfunny, unintelligent, and immature.

More bashing of frodo for being a moronic fuckwit. I say less newb bashing, more established idiot bashing.

I think newb bashing is a bit too cliche, its not something we see around here mainly. The members who are leaving or getting pissed are long established ones. But you can always give me examples of newb bashing if you think I'm wrong.

Let's start with love. hehe. You know, my first article was about love.

I love you all. You guys love me too? You know, whatever it is that you guys hate about me, live with it, cuz it ain't going to change. So if you think my love advice is shiet, don't click on it. lol. Or if you hate my keira letters or any topic I may have started while drunk in the general discussions, it's not going away until someone bans me, so what good does it do to bitch-piss-and moan?

Frankly, I could give a rat's ass about politcs and warfare, or even about getting laid. Women are generally boring (I still love them ), I just did things to waste time. If I found the secret to getting hot models, would I be posting them here? Please forgive my inebriated brain, it knows not what it does.

As for the letters, I usually write a rough draft and post it on these forums before I actually mail them. I decide whether to write a new letter or revise based on some of your comments. Since most of the comments are useless, I now just post them for shits and beans and to piss off spire. hehe. Sometimes I make them intentionally retarded just to read the lame comments (some are actually helpful though). lol.

Ps: I'll write another poem. It'll be sometime this week though, I'm too damn lazy.

Stop posting bullshit. In the relationship forum, anywhere else, and especially in this thread.
Firstly you complain that people are out to get you? Thats because they are. Would you like to know why? As you can appreciate, other people have opinions, and on the whole they think you have no idea what you're talking about. And they tell you. What if people CAN'T live with what you say?
One step to avoiding this, would be to accept criticism, and accept the fact that you might actually be wrong. How can you be part of a community, if you don't actually care whether people read your posts, and don't actually listen to anything they say?
Everything that you say ends up with animosity towards you, or what you say.
The consistency suggests that that is mostly your fault.

Secondly, read what you've just written.

I'm pretty sure that classifies as spam and anti forum behaviour. If you want to see change, do something personally to change it. That goes for every single one of you. You can bitch and moan, whine that it isn't working, but as everyone is at fault, surely a good place to start putting it right is within ourselves?

Nearoka, if you don't get rid of your arrogant, self righteous attitude, and stop posting shit, and that complaining you do when other people think its shit, then I don't think you are part of the KKW grand solution, and a sacrifice (well deserved) may be in order. That is warning 2.
And if you tell me you love me one more time, I will do whatever is in my power to make your life living hell. I am Nearokaphobic.

Carry on.

Posts like cliffs 2 above are things that make this forum go to the shit. Personal attacks, and ripping off people, and tormenting people for having different beleifs. If that post isnt trying to insight an argument, please correct me, because it sure looks like a hell of a large bitch fight.

I feel like I should correct you. But if I do so, are you going to tell me that it is your opinion, and I have no right to criticise it, or tell you that I think its wrong?

I was telling Nearoka that instead of complaining, he should stop posting shite purely for the reason of seeing what happens, i.e. 'Since most of the comments are useless, I now just post them for shits and beans and to piss off spire. hehe. Sometimes I make them intentionally retarded just to read the lame comments' because thats not going to help matters is it?

I appreciate what you're saying, but you, amongst many others have also been guilty of making personal attacks, ripping off people, and tormenting people. in addition to posting spam. And I am willing to change that, if everyone else is willing to. For I don't want to be a hypocrite about all of this.

Will you stay on topic please? If you have nothing worthwhile to say, please don't post, and also don't repost things I deleted because it made absolutely no contribution to what we're trying to achieve.

I find that one of the main problems which we have is that the moderation team dont command the respect that they once did due to their enforced laxness. Due to this people see them as a soft touch and try to exploit any weaknesses they can. I tell you this, I for one am totally behind the team and will not stand for dissention in the ranks.

Something else - leave the bitching to moderators, k? I mean comments such as 'speak English already' and the like. The 'report a bad post' option is there for a reason. We're not stupid. If we feel something should be done, we will. If nothing's been done, you don't have to. Ever heard of this wonderful invention called 'PM's'? Did it ever cross your mind that maybe we decided to deal with it in a less public manner?

Leonie's right.

On another note, we need more threads. Granted they must be interesting and not spam, there needs to be more of them. Go start a thread! (But no :icon_spam)

In the ideal of the moderators actually 'moderating' *shock horror*, yes. Thank you for clearing that up.
And DevilJet, Leonie is using 'bitching' as an umbrella term for people tellings others to do things (or not as the case may be). In reference to the vigilante posts where people have a go at others for posting spam, and spelling things wrong... and then having a go at the moderators for being too harsh... *scratches head*

I think we need more Fancyman, or at least a little more funny. What made the site so fun a year aog was the fact that i laughed everytime i read the forum. I would read the forum at least twice a day. Not quite the case anymore. I admit my opinion means shit after my extended absence, but i thought I'd comment. Carry on.
