For me it is getting my thanks count past the 4000 mark, and to see just how far psychoses can go.

What is yours?

    For some reason only known to the gods, I was logged out (Again) so I could not be bothered, I could not go another round of ullshit, and I never bothered logging in again, nor really visited anymore, then out of the blue I got a PM, so I need to log in and answer it.

    Just waiting for it to log me out again (maybe I might turn it's hand this time and do it myself) , and away we go into the nether lands again, this place seems run mainly by spammers now.

    I will say some good honest people still here, not all are ankers, but who knows how long they will stay.

    True, l still seem to log in daily, but the posts are usually so uninspiring, l tend to look and leave.

    I suppose that it is also fun to run around a once thriving town, but the thrill is wearing off.

    Well, that and running into the occasional troll. Not even Mordorphs ring will keep them at bay.

        Never a cheerleader. Was for FL being allowed to run their own site without squealing like it belonged to a certain group

        Glad that group FINALLY (sheesh took them forever to see good sense) seemed to have wised up (for the most part). Can't say I miss all the whining and complaining at management. Thats been a LOT better. Actually had a few good conversations and a few good laughs at a guru wannabee hanging on for dear life but not being recognized as a guru by anyone.

        P.S. no end in sight. DP is still kicking and this one will be for some time.

  • Warrior Forum is like a lover who spurnedya, whose kissesya still crave.

    Alternatively, I am findin' the Copywritin' section is throwin' out some cool stuff to match the frenzied weirdnessa Mind Warriors.

    So — file me under Infrequently Evident & Momentarily Enthusiastic Once-banned Person.

    If that sounds like too much admin, prolly you should jus' come file my nails cos they are gettin' spanked by the defensive shield walla my keyboard right now as I endeavor to combine remainin' beautiful with spillin' my braino into future yummybytesa stuff.

    Tellya, I want Thinktypin'.

    Words to page, jus' like they got Stephen Hawkins' intellect freed into voice by the benign miraclea Hey We Can Do This.

    Prolly I would consoom a banana as I thunk this all out to screen.

    Or mebbe multitaskin' on writin' an' origami would kinda link up my cerebrotactile sulcus for maxo creative output.

    Thing is, alla the elegant swans an' doves I ever made turned out lookin' like textbook examplesa misfolds.

    Kinda, ORIGAMI PEOPLE — do NOT frickin' do THIS!

    But I would wanna consider the possibilitya combinin' a manual skill with the thinkin' outta words cos my keyboard here has got nuthin' to do with what I am thinkin'.

    It is a kinda brute interface, a combinationa the words I wanna say an' a truly physical skilla not typin' out typod ... typos.

    Thinkin' about writin' an' the physical bizza writin' mebbe only appear connected cos we lack other choices.

    If I can think these words into space via manual labor c/o a nail-chippin' keyboard, then why can I not think words into bytes c/o Thinktypin' (or whatever) as I finesse out a swan in deft foldsa paper?

    I would want for the thoughts to truly count beyond the meansa their manifestation, an' the more I set out to write stuff, the more I marvel at the guys from WayBackWhensome who scratched out sublime manifestationsa genius in quillsa splatty ink.

    Curse you, Taggo.

    I stopped by on a whim, an' here I am in full-on proclamatory mode.

    Prolly I should go eat now.

    I may jus' indulge myself with a buncha asparagus tips.

    Except that the last of the red hot suns, would be the last of legitimate posts, inbetween spam and deadly dull postings, is more accurate.

    I don't think that a last post will happen, unless a 404, shows up, more like an occasional interesting post, or a cry in the wilderness.

    Don't be too hard on yourself, you signed up when the needle was free-falling, l signed up when it was going up.

    And l might get a kick out of an impressive thanks count, but it will probably be next to useless before long.

    Best to hang on til, the forum changes hands, or the mods cut out the "we come in peace, shoot to kill" PR, and become more member feedback driven.

          LMFAO

          He still has a long way to go considering he has already made 7000+ posts to the off-topic section and still has another 2100+ thanks to go to reach 4000.

          But he does hand them out like candy to his OT buddies...handing out 4000+ thanks in OT is definitely not a problem for the lounge-lizard-in-chief.

            There you go again... bashing people.

            Who gives a shit about the number of thanks he's given or received? Does it affect you? (probably it does mentally)

            It's a shame busy-bodies like you can't just quietly go about your own business without poking your nose into others, and stirring up crap and animosity all the time.

    ...apparently the guy didn't even know how many thanks he has received, even though he is constantly obsessed with collecting thanks down here in OT. After 7000 OT posts you would think the man could read his own profile.

    I think I've seen it all now.

    Obviously you are ignoring everyone else on here that tosses an insult, barb, jab etc.

    It would take me a month to post all of the examples of your friends tearing members and mods a new as*hole on the threads.

    Give me a break.

    Lying by omission and using underhanded selectivity may be your specialty as you have so well proved on this thread.

    Tag repeatedly takes gratuitous shots at me on threads I have never participated on, across multiple forums....it's high time you start calling out some of your lounge lizard buddies for destroying newbs and threads with insults, jokes told 100 times already, and other thread derailing nonsense.

    I thought belittling members was the profession of 4 or 5 of these OT lounge lizards. In-fact they used to run around here like they were a street crew.

      I really wouldn't know about what Tag has done to you. He's not a friend, and neither are any of the "lounge lizard buddies" you refer to. I'm my own man and don't mix on a personal level with anyone on here.

      I've no beef with you other than the fact that you think it's fine to "troll" someone else... but when someone defends them (as this is an open forum), you then call them a troll. You're one weird guy. But you keep coming back making out as if you're right - making an even bigger fool of yourself in front of members and guests.

      Btw. Keep your pie charts and graphs to yourself. It's so dated darling.

        When you wrongly defend one of them because you missed the deleted troll post filled with lies that the instigated the discussion, that Tag then trolled a reply to, you may get lumped in with the lounge lizards.

        I know you are own man and so am I.

        I've no beef with you other than the fact that you think it's fine to "troll" someone else... but when someone defends them (as this is an open forum), you then call them a troll.
        Tag's a big boy with a massive 7000 posts to OT --> we have no need for you to defend him, he can defend himself...especially on his own threads.

        I don't think it's fine to troll someone but tag thinks it is...he is one of the biggest trolls on here and his post history proves it. He loves it when he and his gang of friends can troll someone...it gives him real pleasure.

        It's what he lives for down here other than whining about nobody believing his Mars stuff and complaining about how all the threads and members are too stupid for him.

        You're one weird guy. But you keep coming back making out as if you're right - making an even bigger fool of yourself in front of members and guests.
        I am right and again you have made yourself the troll. Nothing weird about a member commenting on the OP's and other's posts about how he wanted to get to 4000 thanks. It's "public" like you said...I commented on the OP's and other's thanks posts and then you decided to become a troll and comment on me.

        Classic TROLL behavior.

        Btw. Keep your pie charts and graphs to yourself. It's so dated darling.
        Dated. LMAO Dated are the same old jokes and insults these lounge lizards have been derailing threads with for years. They have racked up and given (thanks exchanges) with thread derailing insults and jokes the forum staff wrongly thinks they are valuable to the forum --> when they don't sell here or contribute (Example: 2 members have like 700 posts to the other forums and 12,000 posts to OT and they don't sell here.)

        These folks then use this power to bully, troll, and flame members, especially newbs, and generally having a blast wrecking threads with nonsense without any real intent of stepping out of OT. They broadcast the fact they they stay in OT because the rest of the sucks or upstairs suck.

        These folks aren't contributors...these are folks that are sitting at the bar acting like drunks.

    No, guys, my thanks count went up by itself, so, unless a gremlin is in there thanks are for people thanking me.

    And the rest is people thanking me in the thread.

    Multiple forum's! No, that is untrue, and the mods on one of the others forums, certainly doesn't agree with you on the "never participated comment".

    And he is right HD, at least for the last comment,+ l should be able to take it as good as l dish it out.

      Good golly dude...are you off your meds or what?

      If you could actually comprehend what you read, you may be able to actually write something with some coherence...obviously you are not able to do that at this point.

      If you spent a little less time trolling OT forums and flooding them with a ton of almost worthless posts maybe you would not forget what you have done.

      It's what you do while you are here that is an issue at times.
