*repost* And the first person to 500 posts is...
Jun 2, 2003 3:01 PM
Me! Wooo! for me. And I was first, someone just deleted the other one. And most of the 500 have been of the highest quality too. Unlike some people I could mention...
Bear in mind though, that this was 500 posts when it was written. No doubt a few will get deleted, and I'll be back to the 490's again. Ho-hum.
I've been wanting to have a good rant about things for a while now, and 500 posts seems like the perfect time to do it. I've been looking forward to this.
I've made many friends on FlyOrDie, but thankfully a whole lot more enemies. And it's you, the people that I despise, that I have to thank first. Without you lot, moderating these forums and posting here wouldn't have been so enjoyable. You idiots. You truly are the biggest bunch of incompetents ever to walk the face of the planet. God help us if you ever breed. The world might as well end tomorrow.
But, for the few of you that I consider to be my friends: it's been emotional. You have provided me with hours of fun and amusement, and more than a few laughs and tears along the way. Some of you are truly the best bunch of people that I have had the pleasure to converse with on the interweb. You know who you are, even though I've never had the chance to speak to most of you on a one-to-one basis. It's been a pleasure to spend time with you.
And it is the people that make this site an enjoyable place to spend time. Why else do we spend every waking moment playing games on the internet? It's fun, that's why. Although in the case of some of you, it's because you have no life and no friends. I know that's the reason I spend so much time on here...
Ahhh, the people. And what a mixture of people!
The insecure obsessive compulsives.
Who are determined to tell the world exactly what they have been doing today, what they had for lunch, and a whole bunch of other crap we don't want to hear. No matter that we don't want to hear it: they'll tell us anyway! Seriously, we don't care. You might judge the fact that people respond as a sign of affection, but it's not. They just want to tell you how annoying you are being. Idiots.
The shy one's.
That act all sweet and innocent to your face, but would stab you in the back the first chance they got. Butter wouldn't melt in their mouths. It's okay though, you can trust them: they'll never tell another soul. Hah! If you believe that: you'll believe anything. Never trust them, it'll only backfire on you at a later date.
The immature ones.
The people that try to convince us they're past puberty, but who's slapdash approach to grammar and spelling can only mean they are barely out of nappies and still waiting for their balls to drop. Learn some netiquette before it's too late. Or go back to school. Oh wait, you're still at school? Better start again then, eh?
The naive ones.
The one's that live inside a fantasy land, that don't even know what's going on outside their front door. God help them should they ever decide to leave the house. They'll pretty much believe anything you tell them, no matter how ludicrous it is! And then they'll probably come on here to tell everyone else about it. The fools. No, the earth's not flat. No, it won't make you blind. And yes, rub it all over: It's good for the skin.
The moderator wannabe's.
Oooh! Oooh! Pick me! Pick me! I'm someone you've never heard of before, except whrn I've been breaking the rules, but I want to be a moderator! Please! I'd be the best! Vote for me! Gaaaaaaaah! Get lost will you? If they need new moderators, they'll come looking for you. You'd need a completely unblemished record, the ability to spell correctly and two brain cells to rub together. You don't have any of these qualities. And posting topics about it only serves two purposes.
1) Filling up the forum with crap
2) Making you look stupid.
I know, I'll write the same thing over and over again. But ever now and again I'll change a few words round to make it seem different. I'm so cool. Umm, no. You're not. Cool is one thing you're not. Replace cool, with really annoying. At least make an effort with your posts, don't just write a few garbled lines that look like you're had a fit while posting. And stop with the pictures please. They're crap.
The CAPS LOCK kids.
Why oh why do you write LIKE THIS ALL THE TIME? It's not big, it's not clever, but it is really annoying. It's like you have some attention seeking disorder, that means you have to do things like this to get noticed. You treat spelling and grammar like a game, and you play it really badly. I wouldn't mind if you typed in all lower case, that'd be fine! It's just ALL CAPS that's stupid. Why do it?
My favourite bunch of people. Generally. Want to be a moderator? Here's how it works.
FlyOrDie: We've got a great idea. Why don't you give up a large portion of your time to making FlyOrDie a better place for the players? Oh, and we won't pay you for working for us, we'll tell you what to do all the time, and if you step out of line we'll crap on you from a great height. Oh, and we'll hardly ever talk to you, unless we want something. Sounds like a great job!
The poor sods. Those lovely moderators do the job because they want to make this site a nice place to be, not just to get up your nose: That's what I did as the forum moderator. Also one of the reasons they never gave me my 'red wings'. Respect the moderators, or get your arse kicked. Nuff said.
Oh, and do you have any idea how much mail passes through the email@example.com address every day? Hundreds of the bloody things. And you think your 'I waNt Two bE A m0d plz' e-mail will get answered right away? Pfffffft. Be lucky it get's answered at all. I was the only one of the lot that had enough time at work to check this forum every five minutes, and answer your questions and queries as soon as humanly possible. But I was unique, as many people will tell you, so you'll just have to be patient for your answers now.
So long my friends, it's been fun. I might return eventually, but for now, I have only one more thing to say.
