PAGE TWO

Postby Simon of the Playa » Mon Mar 11, 2013 9:26 am

[Edited by moderator on 4/30/14 to add the following disclaimer]

For those who've been around this (or any) internet community for any length of time, it can get a little frustrating to see new people coming in and posting or asking the same things over and over again, without having taken any time to do any reading or research first. What can often happen is that people will put up with those posts for as long as they can, and then they'll vent all that pent up frustration on the next person to post. Then others chime in to vent their frustrations, and things tend to get ugly fast. It's unfair for every 100th poster to have to take the heat of all those other people's posts, and it's unfair for people to have to keep all their frustrations and exasperations bottled up all the time.

For a while, people would hold themselves to the rule of waiting until page two before getting snarky... but it didn't take long before some folks started intentionally replying and posting in a thread to fill up a page so that it would finally reach page two and people would sometimes get mean-spirited.

In order to curtail the page two shenanigans and the unloading of pent-up frustration on ticket seekers and other new users... we have the page two thread. It's removed from the original discussion, and an appropriate place to do things like vent, get snarky, or keep score on the games people play or buzzwords people use in their ticket posts. For this year's scoring chart, please see this post. Have fun, but please avoid being mean-spirited. As per our Community Guidelines, personal attacks are unwelcome.

NOTE TO NEW FOLKS AND TICKET SEEKERS: this is all in the spirit of cacaphony and good-natured fun. If that all seems a bit strange and unusual to you, please take a few minutes to read this post.

[End of disclaimer]


i think this will allow for an outlet of pent up snark and frustration.


feel free to post responses to really stupid questions here.

do NOT mention the name or the thread, it's more fun to guess, it's kinda like Snark Jeopardy, match the replies to the Question and you Win.




OK...I'll go first.

and there you sit, stewing in a tomato paste of judgement, offering your advice and opinion, to no one.
your narcissistic masturbatory self aggrandizement, is only matched by your self satiating proclamations of auto sacrosanct opinion and salacious verbiage with implication of omnipotence. You sniveling troll, you should lie prostrate at the feet of those you think you enrapture with your half witted prose, in acquiescent
self flagellation.

Okay, I've edited out the posts that were clearly going after a specific ePlayan. Disagreeing with another member in a thread is one thing, using a thread to attack is completely different, as Simon noted in his very first post:

In my defense, my question wasn't meant to be an attack. I legitimately wanted to know what [preemptive-snip] actually meant, but I've been informed by someone in PM.

Totally understood, but letting any direct references in is just asking for this to become a very ugly thread. Think of it as a snark firing range - you get to let loose, but hopefully nobody actually get hurt.

YES...this is not that..it's not a chance to vent on other e-playans...well, it is, but do it with Aplomb, grace and Style........NO NAMES OR OBVIOUS REFERENCES....more along the lines of what you would have said to a particular post but couldn't for one reason or another, well, here's your chance.

the subtle innuendo is best when it is indeed subtle, and it makes finding the post to match it to even more rewarding when found, because it will suddenly make sense.

am i being too difficult?

the whole point is that when someone says something REALLY inane, you can indeed, fire the snark cannon at will, with wit, but without any actual targets to be wounded.

Now, first off.... If you want to just jump in here and ask where you can find such things, at least you could bother to fill out the "location" in your profile information, so we don't waste time referring you to a unique hardware store that turns out to be 3,000 miles away from you.
