It's a tough choice mate; either make great posts, gain a small number of posters who like you but in the bigger picture no one gives a shit who you are and no one cares about your posts
make shit posts, troll, be a mug, gain quick recognition, piss of 'tards, have people read your posts and reply.
I'm the dark guardian of this forum, I'm the poster this forum deserves not the one it necessarily needs right now.
It's not a tough choice, it's actually not even a choice. You only did what you did because you're a huge attention whore like most other MTF trolls. Normal posters don't start whining and completely change posting style because enough people aren't immediately responding to their posts.
As for the topic I'll say this, when I joined back in 09 there were many trolls here but it has just gotten worse. Back then the percentage of serious posters were higher and the ACC was done with at least a little bit of self-distance and humour. These days, GM is just drowned in shit and the ACC (before cancellation) was just a place for further attention whoring.
I wouldn't be surprised if the avarage user age has lessened substantially, that would explain some things.
