Re: Too many gifs?

yeah man, I like cool gifs, it's part of the internet culture, but those "bye bitch" gifs with either pocahontas/girlish pop star/random whore are a disgrace to humanity.

Re: Too many gifs?

1st option. That doesn't mean each person who posts GIF should be banned, but imagine if we all started using them!

No one's going to go to the "gif thread" to post the "bye bitch" gif after a Nadal loss; the point is to post it in the match thread. (Whether you think these animations are a good or bad form of commentary is a separate issue, and again, a completely subjective matter of taste.)



This was your argument in the "ban the Castle lingo" thread, too. I know you're Canadian and we're supposed to be obsessed about not offending people and all that crap, but really I think you're wasting a lot of time and energy on this "Oh, heavens! What will people think?" attitude. Worrying about what people will think is pointless; you can't please everyone all the time. Just a waste of anyone's energy to be so concerned with maintaining some kind of 'image'. Unless you're a stakeholder in this website, it should be of no concern to you. I know I'm not losing any sleep over it.
You consider the Bye Bitch gifs as constructive commentary? I just lost some esteem for you...

As far as wasting time and energy on these issues, I can't be faulted for having the best interests of this site at heart. Just more evidence I am mod worthy: senseful, courteous, considerate, not a tard, not Amish, wanting to help improve this site... The whole package.

where did I say that? I said it's subjective. If I want to use or see some really funny/killer gifs, I have to accept that I will also see some less valuable ones. This "common sense revolution" or "senseful fascism" that you are preaching is just someone wanting everything tailored to their own particular likes and needs.

you are like Nadal!

Lost some more esteem for you... The majority of gifs these days are just the same stupid ones recycled over and over. It would not have become a major issue if it did not get out of hand.

Now, did you just called Nadal a fascist? The Castletards won't be pleased.

And not Amish as in I would be a tolerant mod who does not try to kill the fun in these forums by deleting post that are on topic but not totally serious. Things have improved recently, I like to think thanks a little bit to my dedication to the cause. As I was saying: me is mod worthy.

That's some a campaign. In the next post talk about World Peace and giving money to the poor and you have it in the bag.

Re: Too many gifs?

thank you, finally someone brought this up. It's humorous the first time, but when you see that damn Pocahontas in every match thread, you just want to tell the poster to fuck off.

Re: Too many gifs?

bye bitch gif was the best thing that happened to the rosol def nadull thread

God is Love. To know Love is to know God. So ask yourself if you hold any hate for another in your heart how can you have room for Love, room for God

Re: Too many gifs?


So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Stop disrupting the forum.

Muger + Murray = Mugray
Fakerer + Djokovic = Fakervic
