Why so serious?...

Why are peeps on the 'netz so serious? I mean even when we have light banter they will start screaming TROLL TROLL TROLL, go on a rampage including a barrage of insults and crying like a little child. Whenever I'm insulted I just laugh it off tbh. Also when making a light joke of someone I just put a smiley at the end to show that it is a light joke, and even then people end up screaming like little children. Is it because the anonymity of the 'netz gives people this sense of power that they do not posses in the real world?

Re: Why so serious?...

Net often lets people show their true face, a kind of litmus test

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Yes in bold.

As I told you before, a lot of people on this forum are socially degenerate, and this forum is their life, so therefore they act the way they do, and actually take things here to heart. It's actually very sad. I think you need to do a better job ignoring it, though, because if you speak up against it, then people will take that as you being an asshole. Just let people self-destruct on their own accord.

did you try using the smiley? the regular could just be interpreted like you're mocking them even more.

If someone wants to take any thing as an insult they will, no matter what kind of smiley you use.

indeed... ignoring it doesn't make it not real...

actually, putting people on ignore is one tell tale sign of mental instability in certain types of posters... 'please let this forum be nice to me, please let everything be i want it to be, please, please, please...'... ignoring can allow for this type of dysfunctional utopia to exist in someone's mind...

Re: Why so serious?...

People think I'm taking things too seriously or talking as if I'm better than them. Grrah! It pisses me off. I've tried and tried to be nice but I'm going to fecking hulk out on this dump of a forum that doesn't appreciate me. It will burn, burn to the ground. Nobody will be safe from my wrath. Those BASTARDS.

Now here's one I made earlier. This time with smilies.

Nobody will be safe from my wrath Those BASTARDS .

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.
