Some days I really know this feeling.

Thanks for being worth sticking around for, guys. =)


I'm just hoping today goes better than yesterday. Granted, I'm not teaching, and I'm not gaming today, so that removes the two major speedbumps in an ok day.


Seriously? Asking for ban with a grand total of nine posts?


You can read without posting and see threads you just don't wanna touch, you know.

And you have to admit, a LOT of the threads around here, and I'm not even necessarily counting the political threads, are extremely negative and antagonistic.


Heck, even if you poke into Fawtl, there's a lot of THIS SUPERSTAR ITEM IS BELOW MY STANDARDS AND THEY SHOULD FEEL ASHAMED that can get tiresome of reading.

Not gonna lie, if I hadn't been pointed to Fawtl first and found that some parts of the board can be nice and friendly, I might not be too far back in the plz ban line. New gamer + gamer forum = YOU'RE LEARNING IT WRONG GET OUT


But yeah, nine posts doesn't necessarily mean they lack grounds for wanting out. Sometimes, you just don't want to let yourself walk into that kind of environment.

There are a great many users here who simply seem to get their kicks from being unpleasant. Many of these are also among the most active posters.

I like FAWTL, and there are a lot of good people and fun discussions on this site, but there is a lot of stuff that simply would not be allowed and a lot of rudeness, meanness, petty cruelty, and such like that would not be tolerated on pretty much every other forum I spend any amount of time on. I am not at all surprised to see someone get a good look around - either by lurking for some time or by reading several threads after registering - and deciding that the bad simply outweighs the good.


Oh, wait, he asked for being banned because he made ridiculous error and people instead of confirming that he was right actually took their time to explain him which rules he completely misunderstood... Yeah, that makes sense...

Because remember, "Don't be a jerk" applies to those OTHER peons, for I, poster 1234567applesaucez, am so far ABOVE your little feelings! Now let me tell you why your favorite class should never be played by anyone old enough for toilet training and how to break the gm and why you are a bad person for wanting to break the gm and monkpaladincongress...


Maybe I should go get breakfast.


But that requires getting up, and I have a one-shot to make a sheet for.

All that said... yeah, reading the guy's posts he's no less rude than most people on the forum. If he'd been arguing with them instead of against them, I imagine he'd fit right in.

Doesn't change my "Why do I stay here? Oh right FAWTL" reaction some days though.

It's the internet. The bad will always outweigh the good. The trick is to putting enough value in the good you do find to keep coming back. And looking at cat gifs.

Meh, I don't feel like stalking the guy's profile. I stand by my "Yeah I can see why someone would storm out after nine posts" statement.

Shadow Lodge

Short version:

Him: "My GM won't let me do this thing! Prove he's wrong."
Forum: "Uh dude you're wrong, your GM's right."
Him: "OF COURSE the forum is going to be rude and argumentative, it's the internet! No, this is how it works."
Forum: "No, that's not how it works. You're misinterpreting the thing."
Liz: "Thread locked. Question was answered. Stop picking fights please."
Him: "ARGH I HATE YOU ALL BAN ME THIS FORUM IS RUDE AND STUPID"

The guy was pretty darn hostile and rude himself from the get-go.

I find hiding the rules section and (most of) the political threads leaves a fairly pleasant environment.

...and the 4E section... YIKES!


Ah. So he'd be quite the expert on calling the rest of us rude.

I actually have both 4E and Rules already hidden, and nuke Politroll threads as they come up.

I really probably should hide Advice, since that's where most of my ire comes from lately, but there's about an equal amount of good in there that keeps me from hitting the triangle.

This is what I need to keep repeating to myself...


KITTY!

Curse my allergies.


I look into rules and advice from time to time if something catches my eye. Most of the time it's not that bad, as far as I can tell - it only sometimes sparks drama over exact wording or interpretation.

Sometimes even politroll threads can be diverted towards fun or at least nonsensical off-tops. Sometimes.

This simply is not true. At all. The point of the question was to make sure you were confident in your knowledge.

This is exactly what I'm talking about. Frakkin mathies.

Math is awesome! :D

There are comic panels in Inuyasha where Kagome is having nightmares about trig.

I found myself trying to solve the problems in the comic.

In minor complaints, work today was a lot like getting sandblasted in the face - only with snow instead. Gonna be like that tonight as well, probably.

Maybe it's because of what some people tell me is my "ridiculously endless amount of patience" or because I have poor reading comprehension or something, but I honestly don't think the forums are particularly bad, tense, argumentative or hostile. Much on the contrary. I generally find them pretty tame and nice.

Of course, there are some topics you know from the start are paved with landmines. The sane thing to do is just let them pass.

My dad once told me "Son, whenever you feel nervous or intimidated by someone, just try to imagine them experiencing explosive diarrhea".

Most of the hostile posters try to make themselves look big and menacing; but if you put it into the perspective of some random individual typing on a PC, probably unaware of the tone he's using and likely writing in a moment of high rustling of jimmies, its easier to see a post for what it really is and defuse any strong emotions it may generate.

Some Norwegian guy got het up because their cross country skiing team's new uniforms featured a flag motif ("they've put the flag on their behinds! It's disrespectful!"). Wonder how he'd have felt about the UK athletics team's olympic gear

Shadow Lodge

I consider it hostile here mostly because of comparison with other forums I visit, where these kind of highly-volatile political/religious discussions are banned outright and frequent name-calling, insults, badgering, and general rudeness are not tolerated. The thread lock/post deletion/banhammer tends to come down hard and fast on people that stir up that kind of trouble on nearly every other forum I regularly visit, except here, where it's far more allowed and the staff seems very reluctant to intervene on certain issues.

If I ever meet Ian Rankin, I really ought to thank him for introducing me to the term 'het up' - I like it a lot more than 'angry' or 'belligerent.'

Belligerent is pretty neat, too, though.

Truculent and disputatious!

Cantakerous and pugnacious!
Quarrelsome and refractory!
Litigious and contumacious!

I think you and I would get along. My extreme patience and even-temperedness sometimes frustrates people.

Also, your dad's advice is priceless.

As for the forums themselves, I am still of the "hide it and forget it" variety.

Aw. I would feel so bad if I developed an allergy to cats. :(

Get one of the genetically engineered anti allergy ones!
