About the same effort you put into not being an unfunny troll.
So either your admitting you suck or your saying I am in fact funny.
Ok well, this time around I'm not angery like I was last year. Last year was stressful and dumb, mostly because of the entire fake Griffin prank where the staff thinks it's funny if they scare everyone into thinking the board was hacked and not realizing how it only encourge people like me to try to save the board, not realizing there has been countless of AFD giveway exposed in the opening and few people saw that while most pinck.
I spent 1 year angery over that prank, wishing I would had listened to my "warning feeling" instend of being a selfish asshat. I spent 1 year holding this deep, emo pain, waiting for the next AFD to appear where I can finally do what I was suppose to do every AFD; never fall for any AFD jokes in a fourm that talks about a japanese pirate comic.
Finally at March 31, when I saw the APfourms changing the skin I gave a quick chuckles and sent Ocean a "Nice Try" PM. I posted rarely yet I decided to wait until Ocean restores the site. I never understood the whole fake promotions, the trolings and the the bannings, I avoid trolling much, I knew the banning would be temperory and I did not bother to get an fake promotion because I don't need it, even if it was real. I took a quick visit to opwikia to make sure Lobolover knew this was an AFJ which he did.
I was usual for a guy like me to avoid getting fooled in every AFJ but I guess it was because I was really determined to really avoid getting fooled. This prank dispited the trolling, banning and fake promotions was better then last year but I still say the staffs should have used their brains right last year.
Again I don't mind the whole trolling, fake promotion and banning thing, some people think it's funny that way and some dislike it but I'm in the middle of this, I agree some and disagree with some. I think thay the staff think that in every APD, you must act like a moron and do moronic things or scare them into thinking that the board about an japanese pirate series is going to explode, shut down, etc. complate with banning someone or making a fake promotion action which I think it's unessassary but if that how the staff thonk it's funny we can't do anything about that. If I was banned I would've be pissed off but won't be as bad as last year. Now that I broke the tradition of falling for something on AFD clumsly, now the angery scars I carried since March 29th 2007 would finally be healed. I can now fully forgive the staff and move on. It was funny mostly because I did not fall for it, most people may not have fallen for it ethier. Now I don't think I will be having these embarressing rents this time around like last year so I'm off.
I believr that this years AFJ was done nicely, pulled early but done smoothly, I did give a laugh due to having no embarressment like last year, I'm being honest here.
Griffin was conceptually awesome, you just have no sense of humor.
It goes far beyond AFD, I don't know why you restricted the phenomenon to that day only. The moronic behaviour merely peaked on that day, it's been quite prevalent in forums all the time really.
I observed this same sort of stuff at Bulbagarden in Y2K; quite literally, Brownie, Draizuh, Tenchi-Oak and a number of other folk went down the same path and are currently held up at anenga, where they talk about their dismal lives while repeating old internet memes like "Operation 1337".
I'm of the opinion that people internalize things passively; "you are how you act" as it were. if one acts like a jerk, one becomes a jerk and just increases in jerkdom over-time; by such an extension, one who acts like an idiot becomes the idiot!
This is why I never try to intentionally troll people or be rude/nasty - if I start, it'll snowball and I'll turn into a bona fide green-toed troll, whereas right now I'm just a red-toe at best.
This is actually sort of Nietzsche as far as philosophy is concerned.
Can the same be said for masturbative ego-maniacs who have alot of words to say without requiring substance or basis?
I had to re read your first line like 10 times. Did you mean "I got to be a mod"?
and Buuhan pwns you..
I'm laughing so hard right now
Buuhan you don't say?
Actually, I know perfectly well what a Non Playale Character is. A person who you can't play as but is (usually) important to the storyline. I have played Pokemon you know.
No, you have no idea what were talking about.
