imagine if it was a joke account run by BS. That would be the best thing that has ever happened to DiS
here are all one person on multiple accounts.
everyone who I haven't met is tbf....
and in wainbows are actually different people. Kind of amazing that 2 users that are so, so shit can join the boards at roughly the same time, like an eclipse or something.
Because he just has that abhorrent knowing, walking-arctic-monkeys-lyric schtick.
Wainbows is either real, OR more likely one of the greatest long term joke accounts of all time.
and then therevolutionishere is, i think, sheeeit
it has to be funny to qualify as a joke account
I thought you were cool
I thought you were scunthorpe / shiiite / etc ?
thanks for ruining my day, dickpole
Also, incredibly harsh to suggest he and in_wainbows are the same person. (Can't believe I'm replying to an in_wainbows thread.)
Because it's hard to believe that inwainbows, that baghead chap, sheeit, barley sugar and unhinged Russian troll are five individual and distinct people. I think this is maybe unfair to Iwainbows tthough as I always remember too late that he probably is genuine and if a troll, a bit of a pointless one. i bet there are definitely loads more alt users on here than we realise though.
Think we managed to get rid of that Oeuf one though
Not really sure how you figure Barleysugar/Untrue for being 'unhinged', or am I just reading too much into a light-hearted joke post.
I thought you knew sheeeeeit as he's a good pal of fappable, AFAIK. MPBH and Russian Troll are very different unless the dude is masterful at inventing two very different personalities (so many Russian Troll emails back in the day).
you have to admit the mopey "I was going to go outside but everyone hates me" stuff they both post overlaps a fair bit
Or that sheeit was a friend of fapps.And it looks like I wasn't the only one. I think the combination of the troll weirdness and then baghead's many guises left a lot of people a bit confused.
The Barleysugar thing was well pushed at the time when he swapped from untrue but then he seems to post as untrue again now.
Sheeeeeit was banned and then returned because faps said she would vouch for him. Someone said they were going out at one stage but that could just have been wild lies! I threatened to ban faps if he acted up. I think that thread is dead now that has been deleted by The Rake.
All of this passed me by and for a while this place was weird and although it annoyed me how new posters were viewed with suspicion (hi cg!) you can't blame people, who aren't on here every minute of the day, for wondering sometimes when newcomers seem reminiscent of old posters. I'm certainly not the first one.
My old account had problems with being linked to an obsolete email address and the PMs didn't work so I openly told the board I was going to start a new account. No subterfuge.unless you're just bring crass Theo!!!!! Behave :)
with me I think it's because I read this forum a lot before actually joining it, so got like a flavour for how people communicate here. I must've come across loads of troll-ish threads though, which probably gave me a different idea as to how people are supposed to interact here (compared to those who fit the target audience horribly). But I thought the bizareness of silly nonsense combined with Guardian-style commenting was the point.
I don't think I'm a troll account but it really depends on your meaning of the word. I'm not here to make people upset (which weirdly is something that some of the more do-gooders here are guilty of), but I am here to have a laugh as well as make interesting/stimulating threads about whatever is on my mind, because I FEEL like it (though I accept they're not everyone's cup of tea, but I resent some people saying that I'm a 'shit' user and that my threads are 'shit'. I know I'm not exactly MENSA material and I may not have 'wisdom beyond my years', but instead of being horrible, why don't you (not you, UnicornPorn) just piss off and wank yourself rotten. It's not like you're being forced to read anything I write.
Sorry, I'm just saying all this because I have actually cried at 1 or 2 things certain DiSers have said to me.
Also I think there's a bit of an atmosphere now where a lot of users are afraid of starting threads they want to (thanks to bullies like badmanreturns, ethricdouble, brumsa, eltham and that numbers guy with the goofy the dog d/p) out of fear of having socially-rejecting comments thrown at them, unlike (from the threads I've seen) in 2006/07 when it just seemed like this place was a lot more fun (coming from someone who is probably the same age as a lot of you were then) and people could just talk about whatever amusing shit was on their mind. Either that or you've all grown up. On the other hand, maybe me being all mopey about DiSers who hate me has ruined it, I don't know. I think moker and in_limbo were probably the last relics of the 2006/7-era DiS. There's no more of that 'tell me about the good looking, popular people at your school and their downfalls'/'if you put a mint up your bum, would your farts smell of mint?' type of content anymore. I miss that.
For the record I have come to like a lot of people here (and the ones who continue to give me a hard time here sound a lot like the arses who used to bully me at school, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯).
a right bunch of shitehawk grufty users have melted away (vikkers, martbowski, zapsta, wrightylew, chris_is_cool...) and most of the the a-class belm tryhards seem to have gotten a grip. you know who you are. or not. whatever, you're not dicks anymore, so well done on that. vive la DiS!
Zapsta was good
Speaking of Mensa candidates. Wonder how army life is treating him.
On the subject of harmless users, what ever happened to the guy who was "held up" at an ATM? Ha ha ha, makes me laugh just thinking about it, which is horrible of me. Was he the aspergers stand up comedy guy?
Had a different username back then though didn't you? Some sort of Hare krishna pun?
though I don't mind him. I think he's more one of those "ol' boy network" DiSers like Balonz, who's probably posted here for eons and is furiously anti-MPBH (probably due to witnessing the one really bad thing MPBH said that's now become some sort of forbidden DiS old folk's tale), and probably thinks I'm MPBH, or someone else's alt.
I could be completely wrong, but that's my impression.
at the thought of DiS having an old boys network
it's cool, we've got jackets and everything
and how he stopped being quite /as/ weird when someone he knew in real life started posting here?
thought cat_race was from manchester?
I laughed my head off at that on the way home.
Just looked at his account though. It does remind me of my own a bit (i.e. what he follows, obsession with culture, links to Manics stuff, 80s/90s nostalgia, abysmal ratio of following to followers etc). But I get away with it it real life because I'm people think I'm cute.
I was thinking of doing a really bizarre crossover thread with DiS and my StudentRoom account back when I actually was a fucking annoying troll, but cba.
and aimlessly typing into the internet.
but not racism or anything horrible like that (even if it is just self-parody of something he once said on here, it makes my skin crawl).
just his smirking-professor style of writing. but only rarely. often though it happens accidentally.
It's got to be a masterpiece though.
The 'The' is too definitive. And it'd need an extra non-character, and I can never decide whether to go with Wza_, _Wza, -Wza, or Wza-, so I end up just keeping the 'The'. Ach, if it's good enough for oGB, warn & co...
in_wainbows, you sure are one cool dude
so in_wainbows gets a chance to win
...and I fully approve of it
"You're a fucking cockring mate. Congratulations on hurting a person's feelings on the internet"
hahaha. So just a windup account. Thought he was real for a moment
you just seem like one of the monkeyish 'cool' kids of the playground that gets a kick out of making someone's life a living hell
but I hear no apology from you, and I can only assume I won't get one
can people be arsed to log out and in again with a different user?
*smoke masks nebbie*
That's what i do when i want to log in as Sean
'no, you're not as awful as that person' response with about 10 thises
I'm leaving the boards because you're all so horrible.
if you're not going to be using it, like
so people like you who (for your information) are actually pretty bullish can be unmasked.
they're good, y'know
Feel like I might bust out crying
