Name one thing you heart about the site and one thing that irks you ever so.
the other people
best thing - YOU!
worst - no nekked ladies
what pisses me off is this bit here *points to screen at the pink dis option*
there isn't an option that allows that.
It appears once you get over 10,000 posts.
Have I invented a DiSism?
don't you just click on '...new...DiScover New Site Up Now' :s
love: the thread font
worst thing Marlowx got banned
i didnt think he was that bad but then i didnt get attacked...
Dislikes: the people
worst thing: street teamers pretending to be fans.
worst thing: this place is gonna get me sacked
with regular acts of stupidity. I have lots!
WORST: The dismissiveness of new users by established users
Worst: It's made me stop making an actual effort with people "in real life".
in making an effort to look acceptable when i don't even have to shower before coming on DiS.
I miss lazy days. I was so scummy.
Worst: occasional cliqueyness putting off newcomers, all those "who is the best DiSer" threads
best: brilliant people, continued success of the site, access to new music writing and recommendations etc
worst: the odd superiority complex / over sensitive / grudge bearing type.
You are aren't you? What a cunt.
worst: it has actually just taken over my life
Best: It's a great way to pass the hours in work
Worst: If they look at my internet history I'm fired
plus all the lovely people
I live in fear!
worst : me
you love it really lyle. being a girl is the best.
2) HATE THE PEDANTS (J/K)
I merely fuck up a lot.
when he was utterly drrrrrrunk.
the pictures are hilarious.
I am told his left testicle suffered severe, painful damage.
image to have. You just made my day(not really). Poor Henry.
Best - discovering and finding out about exciting new bands/music, and also older stuff that you may not have previously considered checking out but subsequently do, thanks to recommendations.
Worst - as has been said before, the frequent cliqueness/in-jokes can be quite overbearing at times.
best : that the only topics with any credibility are created by users with 5000+ posts
that the only topics with any credibility are created by users with 5000+ posts
but my threads have no 'credibility' whatsoever
why can't I have one ?
Have you seen my threads? Fucking rubbish
is a load of bollocks.
Best: When something makes me snort coffee over my keyboard and I have to pretend that it was something to do with work.
Worst: cliqueness, endless repetition of the same subjects, JAGS.
and it's ace! Totally kills time at work! Looks like I'm writing documents!
This is far and away the best music based forum I've ever posted on, very few WUMs and on the whole people seem to respect and intelligently talk about stuff. Rather than the irrational circular arguements I witness on most sites
i needed a change from posting continously on DPT's forum. Got banned for calling Carl "the money" Barat and starting up a music piracy business in thier general forum. Good times.
in Hell are reserved for those who in time of great moral crises maintain their neutrality.
person who makes banal comments that add nothing to my life.
someday people are going to realise that all my posts are all smoke and mirrors, and that the content is in fact vapid and vague.
but thanks for reminding me. However I am not drinking again until the new year.
you'll be in the pub by Saturday at the latest.
You're probably nursing a scotch right now
a deadly hangover right now. Hiding from the world.
don't read the sarah harding thread from yesterday.
the awesome people I've met, the new bands I've discovered and the number of times I've nearly pissed myself laughing
how hard DiS makes it to do any work. and occasional music snobbery i guess but it's really not as bad as it might be.
Worst: It stops me from getting anything done and when people make un-necessary nasty comments at people.
that the forums don't have signatures/avatars etc, it's nice and neat
i think it's a mixed blessing. makes it easier to load and use, but also inspires people to make a lot more posts..
DiS wasnt the first i saw but it was the first i could understand.
avatars and signatures and all that crap is just, er, crap.
I stayed for the death
I came because someone told me sign up and i was too scared to say no. :(
Dont ask me why.
Who can hope to comprehend the mysterious machinations of the human heart?
im a sucker for that
A man is not completely born until he is dead.
if it was worth all the hours mr babykim spends on here
I stayed because it's worth some of them :P
breast: the quantity of posts, that face that almost every time i press refresh there is something new to read, the great people, the great trolls
worst: the fact that lots of the posts are inane and self-centric, the bad trolls
(i know that this is probably hypocritical as i have posted the odd inane and one or two self-centric threads in my time but i'd like to think i don't do it too much)
i have discovered about 8367 new bands. also, a lot of the people here are very bright and funny.
the fact that i can't afford to go to any gigs and meet anyone.
Well it's got to be the smug indie fuckers aint it?
WORST: the fact that lots of people (despite being really nice) can be so HARSH and DISMISSIVE toward anything that's not their cup of tea.
did someone say FOTB were shit?
but I think what BobbyG means is that if someone doesn't like something they tend to just dismiss it as being "shit" rather than put forth any argument as to why they don't like it.
Worst... umm I really didn't like the review of the Tokyo Police Club single.
I forgot about the I'm from Barcelona hate. THAT DOES NOT ROCK
love: some of the people on here.
Best: clever people who comment
Worst: stupid people who comment
range brackets to illustrate this please? how clever is 'clever' in your books?
cannot be quantified
and ugly people
apparently, or so someone told me the other day clever people aren't good at the hazard perception test, because they see a hazard before it's developed and click too soon.
however, really clever people will have practised the test beforehand thus honing their technique so they click at the right time
yes maybe I should just hone my technique. I am shit at hazard perception.
hate: The moody fits people sometimes display (although that is MOST amusing at times)
is all about learning how to pass the test
nobody actually drives like that in real life
two hands on the wheel lol
:( I've only driven a car about 5 times, I don't like it, it scares me. I want an automatic.
one might suggest getting a bus pass and taxis for life
Girls drive autiomatics. Ah... oh yeah.
Seriously, you don't get the same VROOOM with an automatic. And there's one less pedal to play with.
I can't deal with having to operate the clutch and drive properly at the same time. Little countryside roads are scary to drive down :(
They are the best roads to drive down. They are fun with all of their twists and turns and ditches running alongside them.
you can't see around the corner. There are sheep on the road and pheasants everywhere to run over.
of the site is the strong point and weak point. *strokes chin*
