Let's Try to be Nicer!
« on: August 01, 2011, 11:15:54 am »
So lately, it seems as if people are much-more high-strung than normal, myself included. I think we need to take a step back, breathe, and try to be a bit nicer to one another.

That means giving people time to explain themselves before you call them dumb.
That means maybe some of us should not be calling people faggots all the time.
That means that if you see a repost, don't call a person on it or berate them. They only posted it because they wanted to make you smile, or at the very least not to make you mad.

The off-topicness is fine! There's nothing wrong with that. But let's try to keep things a bit lighter. There's a lot of mud slinging going on. Come on now, we're not the US Congress. We're better than that.




When in doubt, just remember this simple chart!


BAD

GOOD

OPEN SEASON


**EDIT**
I should add, that if you're a habitual dumbass, you get no sympathy. You're probably looking for the abuse, anyway. The chart has been amended to reflect this.

How is threatening to shoot a puppy good?
Who are you again and why in the world would you expect anything resembling rationality or civility in youtube comments?

Huh? Oh, no it's not about the subject of the pictures.

It's about the color tones. The bad one has aggressive red in it. The good one has nice, serene blues and purples.

In honour of this new era of loveliness I have made my avatar slightly less evil.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Was anyone actually doing this or is it just metaphorical?

No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

I highly endorse this thread. In the big scheme of things, it's a waste of time to get upset about the silly things. It's not that hard to be helpful and nice.

I don't know whether to punch you or make love to you, Brandon.

Maybe both.

So uh. Since we're doing this stuff and all, I'd like to apologize for the crap I pulled way back in either 07 or 08. I kind of had a massive mental breakdown IRL over bad circumstances that were getting at me every day for a prolonged period. I kind of cut myself off from the community, leaving a mafia game kind of in the lurch in the process and I dunno if my mentality ever really recovered from that incident, I was just a lot more jaded and bitter since then, especially in the proceeding months (not so sure about now because I don't remember my mentality back then well enough to compare it to now). I might have acted like an ass in general, both in general day to day stuff and in dealing with GS.

I know what was going on IRL isn't really a good excuse for me acting or becoming like I did, but still I feel it's better to have an explanation on the table rather than just suddenly appearing to have gone all Jekyll and Hyde. It's occurred to me in recent days that there isn't actually an online community I've been part of that hasn't eventually fell apart or I got myself ostracized from in some way or another, which just makes me look all the worse for the fact I cut myself off voluntarily and behaved weird, that it was basically all of my own accord that I cut myself off.

So yeah I know it's a bit late after the fact, but I'm sorry if I caused anyone any harm or bother back then or since then.
