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?

It is MTF Non-Tennis during Arse Clown Contest season.

Just have a smoke and a brew and enjoy the show.

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.

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...

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.

:sad: People think I'm taking things too seriously or talking as if I'm better than them :confused: :( Grrah! It pisses me off :rolleyes: 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 :eek: It will burn, burn to the ground :eek:. Nobody will be safe from my wrath :devil: Those BASTARDS :wavey:.

Extraordinary correlation of smileys to emotions:bowdown:

You are probably not aware of this but acionescu is MTF's resident smiley maestro and today she has found a novice that is truly worthy of succeeding her:worship:
