What DOES everyone really think about merriweather post pavillion?
or read this thread. hmm..
i'm assuming both.
this is pretty much the best thread on dis of all time.
was quite good too.
Although I'm completely oblivious to all the personal politics on here and don't know anyone here, so I feel like I'm missing out on a lot of the good drama.
and thank you - your reply is exactly why i never used to make these threads.
I love this reply.
it's all yawn anyway. just a bit more entertaining when i know the people involved in said bitching.
explaining who got banned and why. You just can't win with some people.
but expect the same questions from other people who don't read every thread ever written next time you dust off the DIS megaphone
Instead there's going to be a million and one posts asking why you posted why he was banned.
I've said it before and I'll say it again - before long the Social board will be scrapped because it'll prove too much bother for everyone to maintain.
But it's true, isn't it? If you want to stop trolls, troublemakers, libels, petty personal rows and stupidity in general, there's only one place it's coming from. The social board's already disappeared from the sidebar because it was dragging the whole site's image down.
i don't even remember starting the original thread that prompted Vikkers to lose his shit.
imagine if notorious war crim Thakers hadn't flung a bit of cash at City, eh, you lot would still be top of the league!
but if people keep replying to this will we eventually only end up with a single digit column displayed?
didn't you hear? they all worship him
(c) me circa 05 ;) ;) ;) 2;4
Was he a main player prior to my existence? If so....why?
me and my friend used to come on it when we were in year 9 at school and our class was in the computer room. instead of doing the work we'd been set we'd just come on here and be irritating to people.
Once I'm back in Uni and my money has been topped up i'll take a switchblade to my internet fixation
+...There's a chav girl I want to fuck. I think it's on the cards.
and you never left brilliant
I dunno either I mean I saw a thread once made by sean sayin brainlove was some kind of internet celbrity and it turns out it was bumped by someone for a luagh from way back and I hadnt noticed.
I had no clue who he was at all and I dont think he was around at the time posting on dis. Then when he came back or I acctualy noticed him I was still perplexed to be honest.
sorry. next time, champ.
This is a democracy...I'm just flipping my pennies
you forgot to gives us homework
but I think it's pretty funny how I've managed to not be banned from this forum LMAO.
did you try chatting up some dis-babe with horribly vivid and elaborate metaphors? like: 'I'd drench your cave with my veiny pillar of desire'? or something?
Actuallly...I never chat up anyone. I just hold my breath and hope for the best.
Eitherway...this was the offending thread...
like a snail trail
It just looks a bit naked
Cover yourself up
More news as and when we get it
i can't read the reply system.
and you're in the corner on DiS taking pictures of your lunch.
Can we unban Vikram, please?
THIS IS DIS.
yet you developed a strange love for him despite his continued semi-abuse of you, and will now do your best to defend his reputation. foiled.
Some of the public are really not going to get your risque humour.
But we don't want another Brand/Ross saga here.
Could you get your press office to issue a statement?
and the employer decides to do a bit of a background check and googles 'John Brainlove paedophile', you've just ruined his entire life?
Fancy explaining what in the FUCK you've been doing that warrants the label 'semi-paedophilic'?
....so to speak
(was her excuse
He hasn't been banned from life.
but this is a storm in a teacup.
its more of a snide remark. i think vikram got a bit overly personal.
he needs a few days to think about what hes done
that answer again is coat tails
cba with all this conspiracy-hunt bollocks any more. this is the last post i make as an admin.
if anyone wants anything deleted/looked at from now on, theo's your man.
two people were being immature and insulting eachother/winding eachother up
kik hates one of them and does mock outrage underneath
he gets banned.
again, i says "are you going to ban everyone who called vikram a paedo at any point? or anyone who calls someone a cunt?"
like, honest ultrarofl
john post = mild sarcasm
reply = really cunty
about vikram and john's feelings for eachother
ban brianlove too!
i'm sick of pansy ass attempts to make messageboards have rules. HEY GUYS, they're not a democracy. we're in someone's house, and if the owner wants to hit one person with a baseball bat for being a cunt whilst handshaking another, then... ;_;;;;;;;;; etc
to the same level of consistency that you spout unadulterated nonsense.
I HAVE BEEN PROVOKED
wtf is a semi-paedo? it makes NO sense
ice cream you get in italian restaurants
into the lyrics of 'Gino Ginelli': http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Wu-aNr7v0U
not illegal young though! just over the limit. as vikky once said himself: "18-19!"
Who are you again who professes to have such an authoritative overview of my taste in "ladeez"?
or debating possible changes to the offside rule.
Look at the stretch marks D:
you got any other pictures of your face?
i'm sure this breaks some fundamental law of physics.
we're all doomed.
Incredible. She's just a head, boobs and stumpy legs
He's a nice guy and we get on well, simple as.
When you have a bunch of people making up that you are a paedophile on an internet message board at 1.25am you know something has gone terribly wrong with your day.
We already explained earlier that it wasn't proper paedophilia. Let it lie, man.
than the two times you tryed to sell your trainers on here?
and do they come in kids sizes?
pretty good film
Not usually my kinda thing - it's hardly earth-shattering but entertaining enough.
Forgot how good it was.
Begbie's a nutter.
i looked it all up on wikipedia after, really interesting stuff.
If you don't know Scottish it might take you a while to get into the lingo though.
and the actors, it turns out that Kelly Macdonald (who plays the school girl) grew up just round the corner from where I grew up. Cool.
once you get used to it its not too bad... i just read it in my head in a scottish accent
I just assumed yon Sassenachs might struggle. Depends where you're from I suppose.
all seems a bit forced.
you should probs leave while you still can, yes!
I get it, but I'm getting nothing. Where's my young man's rage gone? What happened to the pazzaz, the "je ne sais quoi"? Oh dear.
I guess it could do with a bit of dukebox
I mean, this is definitely good stuff in this thread... I can see that, but I dunno... Just leaves a bad taste in the mouth. There's few that don't on here "nowadays". Ick. It's just... stupid.
this post deserves more attention.
who has been pc insulting me for months and then get myself banned?
He just wants to compain
outside of DiS people.
but yeah the ones that didnt post had that very opinion of the place hahaha
The idiots are winning.
stuff like this is far more entertaining than 'what do you think of the new deerhunter record' i dont give a shit about deerhunter.
dont like it, leave.
people who say forums are filled with infantile internet dweebs who never get laid... and furthermore use the fact that they had sex once or twice as a badge of honour are fucking idiots anyway.
i find stuff like this funny, and its got no other bearing on who i am as a person beyond that.
so do one you caaannttt
"use the fact that they had sex once or twice as a badge of honour"
like it's that big a deal, like it's anything, like it's a token of power. like it's such a rare event that it could even be thought of that way.
oh dear oh dear oh dear.
i was saying your exact point... people who even mention sex or lack of it as though it proves anything are twats.
you disagree with me how?
if you agree, why did you make the point that it is how the forum is viewed, as though that makes any difference whatsoever?
but, i guess it's not the sex so much that is the point, it's the fact that once people start having it, regularly, it tends to coincide with their mental age going beyond adolescence. and those who never quite get there tend to be people whose mental age never quite develops beyond that of a 12 year old. which is, i guess, what people mean when they make those accusations.
and what i'm saying is, see this entire thread for ample evidence of this behaviour.
Welcome to the club!
its just a stupid thing to say isnt it? stop defending them and embrace the drama!
and ive been quite heavily involved in this thread, i still have a mental age well below my age... and i have a girlfriend- so your theory is flawed sir
you have a girlfriend though. congratulations!
People joking about threads like this is probably much more symptomatic of people thinking internet drama is all a bit silly.
they can expect a certain amount of ribbing/piss-taking.
I dunno. This is just my impression of this thread. Like, the thread just takes a turn for the ridiculous, because the whole notion of this thread existing is slightly ridiculous.
Maybe I'm wrong though. I tend to avoid dramz-y threads like this like the plaaaaague.
are directed towards whos being stupid... the fact that the people tend to be the same ones each time is just due to them being a bit stupid
but honestly think there's a massive tide of entirely unpleasant passive aggression behind the vast majority of the 'jokes' in this thread.
do you really?
As I said, I don't normally even post in threads like this.
I still think finding something humorous in stuff like this is preferable to people sitting around and moralising and insulting each other and deciding who was right and who was wrong and who should be banned and who shouldn't and so on.
Meh. THE INTERNET, EH?
it's ever so easy to get sucked in. and i don't like it when people gang up on someone, even if it's someone i've never yet met. i'm not gonna post any more in this thread though for fear of being exactly what i took issue with...
It's always the London ones, and always the grandads/grandmas.
They're supposed to be setting an example for us youngsters to follow! They're clearly not doing a very good job of it.
meaning me? that's it buddy, you're on the list.
i love the sheer ridulousness of threads like these, which is why i get involved. i wouldnt ever be the subject of something like this because i know where to draw the line between posting on a forum, and living my life through it.
Vikram was kicked out for bad stuff he said to Branloaf. Neither you nor Vikki's love of you were involved. Don't fret yourself.
WHY IN BLAZES WOULD HE BE BANNED BECAUSE HE LIKED YOU?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
I think you do this stuff on purpose, Francis.
in all seriousness, two things contributed to this...
1) I was told it was because vikram hated me.
2) I'm terribly pissed and gullible.
this is just your 'interesting' personality.
i watched rat race tonight, too. and a bit of borat, and saw 5. so many films.
but I'm sure he's grateful. It didn't really contribute to any drama though, so I fail to see the brilliance of this.
vikram was banned because he hates you? if everyone on here who didn't like you was banned it'd just be you and bamnan talking to each other all day, surely?
good one. You're talking complete shit. Cheers.
I heard from a reliable source, that it had something to do with me. LOL
I love it when people come out with the "everyone hates you" comment, because it's clearly not true. I have so many people that I get on with on here, many of them I have on msn, would they add me if they didn't like me? I'm guessing not. It's a small minority that choose to speak out against me, all the shit ones basically.
your msn would explode.
the only time I notice his presance is when he coems in late to something to take a snipe then tell me to go and listen to dubstep.
maybe you're just bad a telling jokes
i requested the banning and 'plums rightfully obliged.
let's not get all anal about whoever got it done.
we're all winners here - that's all that matters.
other than that, the lot o' youse should be ashamed.
But I have a feeling that they were talking out of their arse, so who knows? Vikkers loved me anyway, so it's highly unlikely.
Vikram banned himself because he loved you??????????
I don't even know how to approach it.
so it's highly unlikely he'd be horrible to me, resulting in a complete banning.
Are you just being awkward on purpose?
But then that's kind of the entertaining part of it.
and I will weave you a tale
I think he's mentioned those things, once or twice....
Likes to think he's top of the cock and bed partner of 1000 maidens, but really he just shags his keyboard. He.
you can do better
not really my point.
nobody has ever suggested or demonstrated that this board has any kind of consistent application of rules. hence everyone popping up and going "BUT I CAN SHOW WHEN SOMEONE ELSE SED SOMETHING MEAN" is just wasting their time.
i like your sex & the city blog tho. that's a CONCEPT.
i think i got about £7 for them :(
somewhere on the internet.
Where would he be if it wasn't for stuff like this?
my point is, we are all in this together, lets not try and pretend we are above DiS?
Not sure where you got that from.
Personally I wouldn't have barred him because it struck me as being par for the course with Vikram vs. Brainlove. Anyway, I think my point is more that if you feel someone's making your life a misery you'll have to send notes about it or else people might not even notice.
I know someone who really is mentally retarded and it's an extremely upsetting thing.
And it wasn't/isn't said playfully
so i'm not racist
i've never met a black man. maybe i am racist?
it does happen quite a lot though
an insult/individual form of abuse is only as insulting/abusive as the person takes it. if you call someone a retard and they are mentally retarded or have family/good friends who are, it can be a heck of a lot more hurtful than calling someone a "semi-paedo cunt", which in the context of dis is very much on the normal level of insults (again, assuming the victim wasn't abused as a child, or something, idk). and yeah, excessive offense compared to what was expected is always the insulter's fault
of course, people taking mock offense is a different story and just plain silly
you faaaaackin nutter
It's beautiful though, so many people getting het up about a website. It re-affirms my faith in humanity. I love it.
