Who? What? When? Is wishpig online or something?
either way, don't have a cow man
Just happened there. Pm'd parsefone seeing as how he's the only mod online.
And I'm not homophobic.
I dunno, you post troll-worthy stuff all the time with Beef so I just assumed you only used it to try to get banned. *shrug*
So, I called reading and theater gay, in a thread where I ask for pictures of libraries and theaters, and you think this is a serious, offensive, bannable offensive.
And I never post 'troll worthy' stuff. Just because someone disagrees with you doesn't make them a troll, and the fact you thought I was trying to get banned just highlights the problem here. Now stop embarrassing yourself and unban it
I didn't delete the thread because I like the links. I banned you for your whole attitude in that thread, which goes along with the sexist stuff you've posted from the same account, etc. As far as I can tell the 'Beef' persona is all about being a big macho man. Ho ho. So amusing, how amazing of you to 'ironically' post stuff like that.
It's not a persona Theo. I genuinely find this amusing, see the post below explaining why/how.
And I don't like this username. I've had it since I was 17 and quite frankly all my posts up until this year have been terrible. I'd like to just get a new one, hence Beef. But this is devolving into the same argument *last* time I was banned.
Parsefone is just going to unban you like last time I canned you for being a meathead. It's not really that important.
Fishplums did. Speaking of which I should probably send a pm saying sorry for accusing him of banning me.
Anyway, you say it's not important but then you're the one who started this in the first place. Fine, Theo. You have a different sense of humour. That's fine. I don't find anything you post worthwhile or amusing in any way what so ever, but hey you're the authority figure here. So how about, in future, if you think I've gone too far you pm me instead, and we can sort it out like gentlemen.
I should PM you. So you have my apologies over that.
I can see why you'd jump to conclusions. There are people on the internet who genuinely take this stuff seriously, but a look at most of my posts will show I'm not one of them.
No more beef, or something.
Hopefully this won't be repeated an udder day.
Yeah you herd me.
can you ban all my accounts please.
? in my absence this place must've gone to the dogs
I think Theo's just milking his power at this stage. I think what I post is quite amoosing.
I got a message off 13Monsters the other day saying if he found out who banned him, he was gonna kill them. mods watch out.
The only even slightly sketchy thing I've posted lately was in the theater thread calling yes_'s indie comment dumb.
Maybe that post in parsefones thread? Jesus, it's a minefield out there.
seemed a bit unnecessary to me
never really understood the whole banning policy. I guess they want us to be nice to each other or something.
Making a whole thread whose thesis is 'gay activities' like something out a mid-80s edition of the Sun just seemed a touch pathetic.
It was then mocking this viewpoint by introducing other, humorous elements (no homo!) while at the same time also having a laugh at the rarefied sort who do appreciate these from an outside perspective.
This is in addition to getting the main point across anyway; a thread for pictures of cool libraries and theatres.
This is not, by any definition, trolling.
Not trolling. Right.
And why it's considered very cool to go both, right? It's trolling to point out things you don't like.
It's not as thought there's anything I can say to convince you otherwise
That this was the *only* reason? Or did I imply this was the only relevant one in this part of the discussion?
And yes, I know going through your thread and replying to each and every point is dead boring for everyone else to read but fuck it.
This is a side point to a discussion in any case. If you want to start a thread where we all discuss the decline of libraries / theatre then let's have that. There are lots of different reasons.
You always get it so wrong. You should have a sitcom written around you.
There's /b/ for people who believe that any censorship and any attempt to pander to some kind of overall 'nice' idea is bad.
We're both twenty. Therefore I can only assume, you've given up trying to form a reasonable argument and are just resorting to insults. See also; ."cock in hand keyboard warrior". Likewise, 'any censorship'? Really? Is that what you think we're disputing?
I don't actually even bother going to check. Twenty is, however, a BIG difference from 19. Oh yes.
And I think there is a certain amount of anti-censorship about this, yes.
You're so easy to wind up.
and probably not actually intended as a slur, it's the kind of 4chan faux-bro bullshit that probably warrants a ban in any case
How could you interpret it otherwise? We all know only homosexuals read or enjoy plays.
(And it started on cracked.com, not 4chan. See the link above; that was the first video of it I think, and it was from their 'post your funny videos' board. The only board on 4chan it's used regularly on is /fit/, a board primarily made up of genuine homosexuals)
It's about whether irony is really a get out clause for writing anything you like, given not everyone will be sure it's irony and given not everyone will therefore feel this site is a good place to come to.
insinuates that you think someone is serious but just pretending to be ironic? Which is a conclusion some people on this board are infuriatingly quick to jump to.
2. Also no.
Get your pot belly out of my thread. This is over now.
like the internet equivalent of a 5ft spotty weedy man who doesn't really know how to be socially acceptable trying to bully an actually normal person who's more bigger and more intelligent etc than you.
What i'm saying is, ."are you too chickenshit you cunt". - lolol
yes well done me
he's pretty normal in all the ways its good to be normal.
for clarity. Nor do I hate the idea bumming is okay. Oh dear this is a minefield.
that's not very personal really is it.
Anyway if i'm gonna show support for dood i might as well have a dig at vikram in the process, two birds one stone etc.
i'm a pretty firm believer in taking words as they're intended, rather than how they might be received. So although I don't use the same sort of language as a personal choice, it doesn't bother me if dood does in the way he has for various reasons that i can't be bothered to elaborate on so lets leave it at that cool.
with the humour explained for those of you who missed it above, is the equivalent to calling people pakis? And despite this, you're the one calling me stupid?
racism has such an obvious negative connotation that to use racist terms then you have to be either trolling or genuinely racist- basically social conditioning determines that to use racist language you pretty much have to be a racist. The difference is with references to sexuality you're also making references to certain modes of behaviour which, though they're linguistically identified with a character trait that isn't -necessarily- linked (sexuality obvs), still they're widely associated it. Blah blah the important thing is though that racism is born of irrationality/fear etc. whose grounds for differentiation are baseless, whereas ironic use of what could be conceived as homophobic language carries alternative meanings that are neither inherently positive or negative i.e. must be interpreted on a case by case basis (it doesn't take much effort to do this).
HELLO I'M BORED WHO KNEW
Stop making assumptions. Go away.
so im not going to sorry.
Stop putting words in *his* mouth too
you are all the worst
especially for the oven dodger bit.
and yeah i got it was irony.
or w/e. idk.
I mean why even bother. The anonymity of the internet can be so lame sometimes. I wonder if he would be saying stuff like that in real life John Galliano style
everyone comes out of this one looking bad
the fact as banman points out, oven dodger is not a oft-used insult, unless you live in a very weird world which is possible (i don't know you, and not making any judgements) i can't believe that term is one you hear reguarly, it's only you using it which brings into the discourse, the common parlance or w/e.
as a term it's only offensive insofar as it's a reversal of the common, and right historical idea that the holocaust was a really terrible thing. the part that might be offensive is the self-evident set of suggestions about jewish people and the holocaust that i don't particuarly want to unravel furthur. the juxtaposition that that insult relies on to be an insult exists whether or not it is meant ironically. i find it perverse and odd that you want to evoke that, to me, quite shocking reversal in a casual, banterish way.
there's calling a jewish person a yid, and yeh that's dodgy and you can have arguments about it, but either way there's a v. long history of ethnic slurs aimed towards people you disagree with, and w/o looking up meanings and etymology they only exist in terms of the slur itself. faggot means gay person is bad.
what i'm concerned w/ isn't really any 'victim' being offended, and i'm certainly not, it's rather a particular kind of way of thinking about stuff which ignore the actual content of words. faggot alludes to a hypotethical homophobia that's has or hasn't, may or may not exist at some point in time. oven, in that context, allude to the mass extermination of 6 million innocent people.
did i say that? wow! good for me. finally growing myself some balls.
oh no wait i didn't say that. ne'er mind.
(i wasn't personally offended - whatever that means - and that was just an explanation of my gut insctinct when confronted w/ that post. i am quite willing to believe it was all a load of dogshit idk.)
i would draw the same distinction if you called a gay person an over-dodger
and btw, while we're on the subject did people know apparently AFTER the concentration camps were liberated some gay people remained imprisoned for homosexuality in west germany! and none of them got compensation or recognition as 'victims'.
now's that what i call homophobia! vol.43
i shouldn't have put victims in quote marks. i just don't like that word, and feel the need to put everything in quote marks but reading it back in that context it completely wasn't necessary.
in that case, i would not have got involved in the thread.
but it doesn't really matter where it originated; it smacks of the 4chan thing of deploying memes and quips by rote without actually managing to be funny. It's sort-of more acceptable in those places because it's part of the everyday lingo around there, but taken elsewhere it just shows it up for a rather lazy, offensive and obvious gag.
ps - doesn't zyzz post on /fit/ ? Surely that guy is drowning in gash. is he gay? this is a genuine question.
No homo is a semi-meme, therefore using it isn't funny?
I'll leave you, hofo, and theo in your little club then. Enjoy your company.
Well, only in terms of sending out pictures of your penis, rather than what the inbox looks like.
Whining. Again, read the thread.
Yeah, really giving off a good twenty-something vibe.
Good one, Craig.
Don't try and censor me faggot!
These are clearly the reserve of someone actually arguing a point, rather than the just arguing because you get off on it. If you actually cared, rather than looking to pick a fight, you'd be less vikramy and more jonny ratish
This was a nice, reasoned thread before you and vikram came in here.
justice, and the american way?
Well shine on mister carebear, keep fighting the good fight one sentence on the internet at a time. Ignoring you calling vikram a paki, and him calling you an oven dodger because hey you two were just jokin' round.
In short, if you're going to be offensive, try and be funny.
the content of that thread you posted was proper interesting, but stuff like no homo just winds people up)
would read again
this is a shit thread, and I wish I hadn't read it again
But feel free to continue getting your cock out on multiple occasions on tinychat, and crying about how mommy never loved you, also on tinychat.
But if you want an other argument about this, go look at the faggot thread. The look at your pms saying sorry for being a dick shortly after. That will save us going down that road again, fat boy.
You come in long after the argument is settled to stir more shit, make provocative, overly antagonistic comments either ignoring the threads contents or simply not having read them, and all round act like an asshole as you so often do.
And I'm the one who was called a troll in this thread. Go figure.
it's really sunny
I just had a magnum :')
i wish i had some mars ice cream.
In any other thread i'd be calling for guntrip to be banned just for eating one.
seems a bit passive aggressive tbh
and with that, i yield.
it's fantastic stuff i gotta say - i'm in awe.
If I was to make a comparison, it would be to a mid 18th century explorer bravely heading off into the unknown jungles of South America.
It starts fine, then stayed fine, and the explorer accomplishes what he set out to; Find the Glorious Solid Gold Icon of Beef, talk the leader of the savage yet noble natives down from feeding him to the local reptiles, and leave.
BUT, then, on the brave explorers way home, BUT, then, on the brave explorers way home, some mysteriously airborne pieces of shit hit his propellers, the plane suddenly takes a huge fuckin' nose dive and is now on fire at the bottom of a ravine, with cannibalistic locals poking around, throwing spears and babbling unintelligibly.
So now, to continue on this metaphor, the brave explorer is going to wait for the village chiefs to come back and put a controlled detonation on the plane altogether, because it's served it's purpose.
Brave Explorer: Me
Savage yet noble tribal leader: Theo
Mysteriously airborne pieces of shit: vikram
Cannibalistic natives: hofo
Controlled detonation: Deletion
Could totally picture you in stereotypical British Colonial garb. Quite spiffing I say.
Also I hate how, on this site, this thread has gotten more than 3 times the replies a much, much better thread got.
dood is quite clearly one of the nicest guys going without a proper prejudice bone in his body. stop getting so uppity about vaguely rubbish internet lols.
YOU ARE ALL GROWN ADULTS.
do me a favour love
that's the problem with memes
whether it's enough to get you banned is for the mods to decide
think many people think he's racist or homophobic. i'm pretty sure he's not. But using words like faggot and nigger suggests a childish dickhead who's so ingrained with internet stupidity that they don't know where the line is. You could probably accuse a couple of others as well on here of the same.
So in summary, decent guy but stupid for using those words.
Vikram, an obese coke addict known for attempting to groom girls half his age, and hollywood_freak, noted sex pest (also overweight) decide to have a go at me over something entirely inconsequential and harmless.
Two people who have never posted anything of interest, anything that was funny, or anything semi-decent having a go at me. What's the point? I make good threads, I'm generally considered to be funny, and I'm in fantastic shape, as well as being fairly good looking, having a girlfriend, a job, and being happy.
Yet I have two self righteous, fat, unemployed, single, unhappy jobless faggots riding in and doing nothing but fighting and arguing most of the time, looking for slights where there are none. Apart from when they're being deeply, deeply creepy, greasy, slimey men.
Where I'm going with this; I'm out. When I joined the boards were a substantially funnier place, and the vikrams were a minority. Now they're at least 1:1 with the cool people. I know someone will reply 'I don't care, bye' but you should care, because it's not the vikrams and the hofos making people laugh, or making interesting threads.
I know goodbyes like this are stupid. But I also know I'll just end up coming back in a few weeks unless I get this out of my system. So enjoy your morning threads, your moaning threads, and your self obsessives. Good bye, cool people. Fuck you, fat faggots with chips on your shoulders.
You'll be back :)
I just don't read the threads that look a bit sad. It does seem like there's more of those recently but goes in roundabouts innit.
you're better than Korn
Wyclef is down! the ref's going in for the count! ONE TIME!
and stop besmirching (great word) my real name.
(who posts on DiS but I've forgotten his username) spent a good half-hour thinking I was the other one. He eventually asked "so do you, er, still post on DiS?", at which point I had to clarify :D
(he posts on here as justjay)
yeah, I thought he was looking at me a bit funny and I sort of suspected why. THAT AWKWARD MOMENT WHERE SOMEONE THINKS YOU'RE A COKE-ADDLED SEMI-PAEDO.
This came on in my headphones http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2TkLhtXM0go and i imagined you trudging off wearily but triumphantly into the sunset, turning back for two seconds to remind yourself what you've left behind...
yes sorry. You've given fairly good reasons for leaving though, it's ALL VERY SAD. Just think of all the more productive things you can do with your time, I guess.
'faggot' is such a shit word, work on your vocabulary
I have immortalised you: http://lolmoles.tumblr.com/post/4878347464/theboards
we must not question them.
