Well I was mistaken but I had the right guy in my mind. I thought Dr.Ghettoblaster was Daytripper or maybe I just got confused. I think theres a nighttripper running around here too. Basically I apologize Daytripper I thought you were Dr.G which had me kinda screwed up at first as to why you were coming at me like that because he's a friend of mine on both PSN and XBL. Now that I know you two are completely separate people fuck you and you're now officially in the cunt brigade with O'Connor Gadzooks! Bowden and the rest of the Microsoft ass lickers.
Thanks G1GAHURTZ for finding that thread buddy :)
I apologise too Tea
Sorry dude x
Have a good weekend folks
I've actually always thought of Gadzooks as one of the less reasonable posters here.
And to be quite honest, I've always thought it was a bit of a drama queen move to announce that you're leaving to everyone. I've been on sites that changed to the point where I had no interest in them. I never felt I was so incredibly important that I had to inform everyone that they weren't going to get my opinions anymore. Who cares? I'm sure if I stopped posting tomorrow, no one would give a shit unless I made an announcement about it. Just like no one would give a shit if he had just bowed out gracefully.
I like this site. I may not agree with everybody on here and there are maybe two people I consider irredeemable trolls, but for the most part, I like it. Whether people like me is irrelevant, but I do think there's some good people running the site, especially Dave, who seems like a good guy.
So Pat isn't interested in moderating this place eh? Bet he's interested in the money he makes from it. And without us, he would make none.
He had no problem running that self-indulgent poll a few years ago which asked members to name the person most disruptive to the site and most hated - the biggest troll. The winner would get a ban. What a stupid example of hubris and power-crazed arrogance. When it became clear that the trolls themselves decided to lynch one of the good guys (no doubt using their multiple profiles), he just went ahead and published the results anyway - but in an act (no doubt in his eyes) of huge grace and tremendous power-crazed kindness, just like Caesar in the Colosseum, he granted clemency to all. The good guy (who came second in the end) quit commenting, went silent for two years and now only very occasionally posts.
A website is nothing without its readers. Don't take them for granted.
gad was/is a good guy. has been here for 4 years. i think it is totally legit to announce it if you really want to leave after all those years and hundreds of posts. has nothing to do with feeling important. it is just a nice move. i say hi when i enter a room and i say bye when i leave.
Clupula this is exactly what he wanted. He's been drowned out by so much positive news about SONY he had to make a dramatic exit to see if people will care when he returns when Microsoft announces the nextbox. Trust me I know his kind. I swear this place is like the WWF of video game news sites.
But to be fair he did make a few good points now and again...still fuck him. Filthy xbox lover :D
"hahaha very funny guys...
O'Connor I got a game we can play it's called Pinochio......you sit on my face and I tell lies. Yeah i thought you'd like that you pretentious cunt.
SONY RULES!!!!! (suck suck suck slurp slurp slurp) LOOK AT MY HUGE DICK!!! WORSHIP IT YOU SOUL-LESS DONKEYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
THAT'S RIGHT TEA IS BACK BITCHES - PREPARE TO HAVE YOUR WIFE'S UNDERWEAR EATEN!!!"
Who ever wrote this is a fucking genius.
^ Pretty sure your mom wrote the (suck suck suck slurp slurp) part.
I understand Gads sentiment, and nothing he can do about it sadly, i hope he can return at some point when he feels is the right time, time cures everything i hope it will work for him, i will add you mate i will send you an invite.
As for me is not because of the trolls or venom comments or commenters here, is because at work the damn filters did not allow me to enter this site anymore, and at my free time i spend it in other things, but i do post from time to time and keep in touch with the site, i miss the long lasting discussions even with some very tought posters.
by the way for the very few times i agree with Joe Musashi on this trend
I am finding it utterly hilarious that one of the people commenting on this thread is part of the problem, yet is acting like he is standing against it. It's not the OP. It's not TEA. But it's a long, long-time poster who loves to troll the comments under certain subjects and loves to bully others when it suits him - but when the same is done to him, either throws a gigantic hissy fit or leaps onto the moral high-ground bandwagon (temporarily that is).
Oh, the fucking irony. Oh, the ginormous lack or self-awareness. Or is it just pure and simple arrogance? Certainly part of the reason why things will never change here.
Laughing so much it hurts...
It's hugely self-aware. I'm just a bit of a cock. Now excuse me while I throw a hissy fit.
Okay seriously, what I like is intelligent debate with a bit of stupidity thrown in every so often. Not a load of stupidity with the odd intelligent comment here or there. And yeah, I can be a bully and giant egotistical prick, but I'm pretty sure everybody here knows that I love them really… well, maybe apart from Erth… grr, I *want* to love him, but MAN! Even BDH was tolerable… anyway, I digress. The main thing is, we are blessed, for the most part, with an unusually well-informed community here - and a passionate one too. You could argue that it was even more well-informed at the very start, but that's by the by - I think we can all agree it would be a shame if the comments here devolved to N4G levels. That's something, IMHO, it would be preferable to actively avoid.
But, to your point, you're 100% right silk, fair call. I guess my only defence is that we're all emotional beings and sometimes I feel enthusiastic, others cynical; sometimes I want to share joy and others I'm spoling for a fight. My mood changes and that's reflected in the comments I post. There's a few particular topics that grind my gears, and often I just want to swear 'cos this is literally the only place on the web I can get away with it. So I agree with you and I wouldn't say I was the perfect poster, not ever.
Oh the fucking irony of it all indeed.
Oh, and I miss Psychotext. If you're reading this pal, drop me a line, be good to catch up.
I didn't mean you at all.
Though it might say something that you thought I did. ;o)
Oh man, do *I* have an ego on me or what!
@TEA - The World Wildlife Fund?
I don't mind the trolls if they don't cross the red line (insults, racism, sexism, etc)
Most of the time I find them funny...
Get a new skin if you can't stand people trolling your favorite game/console or anything related. Your skin is so thin.
I think I can spot three hints in your first post. Intentional? Or am I reading merely coincidental 'signs'?
Username is "FarticusMaximus"
Complains about other people being immature
this is GAMING man. how mature is that? a mature gamingtag is nonexistent. it is just impossible...it is a gamertag!
Why is it immature? Why is it less mature than say reading, watching TV series or movies, playing chess? I agree it's a perception but don't agree with the conclusion.
Playing games (of any type video or otherwise) is something which people of all ages should enjoy. Why should it suddenly become immature to continue enjoying it at a certain age or maturity?
@Doc: i thought you´d know me a little by now ;) i am playing a lot of the so called "kids games" and i have no problem with being a 37yo, heavily tattooed social worker with a "mature" life and all, who loves to play kirby games with his girlfriend and having yoshis island and medievil in the personal top 5 of all time videogame hall of fame.
what i meant was: why must it always be either mature OR immature to begin with? no prob if a 75 yo loves to play pokemon. i cannot see what makes gears of war more mature than kirby though...seriously cannot see that, to me playing kirby is more grown up than playing gears. ok there´s the violence, a kid shouldn´t play it because of that, sure but to me the definition "violent" game would be more fitting than "mature" game. a mature game gears is not. not at all.
i responded to Joe Gamer . i don´t like the proto "hardcore gamer" type. they remind me of homophobes. something about his post pissed me off. a gamertag is a damn gamertag it is your name to play games online. solidsnakeeater 89 or headshotsniper187 isn´t more mature than farticusmaximus.
Did I just get compared to homophobes? o.O
Gamertags are names people CHOOSE for themselves and they absolutely say something about who that person is and some are definitely more mature than others.
headshotsniper187: Loves FPS, favorite game CoD or Battlefied
solidsnakeeater 89: favorite game MGS, probably born in 1989
joker8520: loves jokes, is rarely serious, uses a ten-key number pad indicating PC gamer(or accountant).
EyeXXXteabagzurmom420: Halo gamer, immature mindset, stoner, probably in high school.
FarticusMaximus: Thinks fart jokes are funny, favorite movie: Ted
Fart jokes are for kids, IMO the OP's statement and his gamertag made for an amusing bit of ironic contrast.
i will change my GT on xbl to MostMatureHardcoreMediumUberGamer right now....and then play Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster 247 ONLINE
Da Man, who spends 95% of his time raging at anything Sony-related and condemning anyone who does not share his views as Sony fanbois, is too filled with anger and stupidity to read and digest:
Da Man said today that...
"The sonydisturbed1974 forgot to mention that this website didn't really ban the readers who were chosen as arseholes of the year."
But what is this I see? Last week, in the very post in which I raised the subject of the poll, and the comment to which Da Man is referring, I said:
"but in an act (no doubt in his eyes) of huge grace and tremendous power-crazed kindness, just like Caesar in the Colosseum, he granted clemency to all. The good guy (who came second in the end) quit commenting, went silent for two years and now only very occasionally posts."
What a ridiculous dick you are Da Man. Too dumb to read, too dumb too understand simple statements.
Unlike you, I praise and criticise all consoles and companies. Funny how you only focus on some of it. Biased much?
^ What a sad, sad, vindictive little man...
I know you must be upset about Maggie, and all that, but there really is no need to try and drag everyone else down to your level.
Why? Because I conclusively point out the troll is full of crap and misrepresented my views?
Interesting how you leap to the defence of one of the most disruptive fanboys on this site. XBots unite?
You're so precious. Anyone might think my earlier post referred to you.
No, because you actually are a sad and very vindictive little man.
The multitude of your unnecessarily hostile comments clearly back that up.
I could hardly care less about your childish 'guess who I don't like' game.
Oh yeah I know what you like to play, wasn't sure if you were coming from the 'yeah it's a bit immature but all of it is, get over it' angle or the other way. :)
So what's your GT? Fart jokes are still absolutely funny if they are good jokes. If the joke's good then the joke's good. Or at some point do things stop being funny if they are about something frightfully uncouth?
There goes G1GA strutting around again like he is the moral arbiter of everything that takes place on this site, while in between the lectures, trolling comment strings with five word sentences like "the PS3 is shit, LOL", intended solely to wind people up and stir conflict. Fortunately I do not obey orders from sanctimonious hypocrites with superiority complexes.
As for you Da Man, you said that I failed to mention something. I didn't; I very clearly mentioned it, and I proved you were wrong - as is my right. I also used a style and language you have used against me and countless others many times, which I consider only fair (or do you, like G1GA, have special privilege?).. You now insist that I missed your point - yet you seem very reluctant to explain how. I'm sure G1GA will approve if you get your vindication by explaining how you were right and I was wrong.
