Apparently only the elites here, (moderators and admins) are allowed to post whatever shit they want. God forbid one person says ANYTHING, they get attacked. I'm sick of this community and how much of a shithole it's become. People used to be much cooler and nicer and the ones who are still nice other than LV and Yanni get made fun of and verbally attacked. Some of you guys are just so full of yourselves and think you're better than others here... you know who you are. It's about time someone's said something about it. Now this doesn't apply to all mods here, such as Yanni, LV, Pheids and a few others, but the majority of you just sicken me. Really.

And Yahoozy - I know you hate me. I don't care. But I must say, you're quite a hypocrite for banning me when all i said was "u mad"
You even said right before "i don't even" (what is this, i dont even meme) and you post to dog fort comics. C'mon now.

Uh, I don't hate you. It's just that this thread makes no sense, and it's not in the Pie Forum. I'm not trying to backseat mod, but you're saying "god forbid anyone other than mods says something", but then I make one mostly-joking comment and you go on a rant.

I moved this to the pie forum with all the other threads that don't really have a point. This isn't an appropriate post for the General Discussion forum because there is no content. If you just want to make a thread where you quote song lyrics, do it where post count doesn't accumulate.

I was about to say "took him long enough," but then I realized that I don't quite know why most of us are still here.

You turd.

Everybody has been a doucher to you for like six years, because you're weird and slow and you don't fit in, and you are still here forever and it's like "OMG! Somebody has made a post that isn't exactly polite to me:

A) Make an angst filled comic with no punchline and overdepiction of gore. (the last 2000 times this happened.)
B) Quit forever/ (This time.)

Good riddance, sod.

And you think this is okay? This is an online community. That means it's on the internet. That means it's not exactly likely to be filled with well-adjusted people. I'm fortunate enough to have found some friends in this community so I can just ignore the jackasses, but I don't think very many people have been nice to Vyach, and I don't think he can say the same. The fact that you are the one calling him a turd is astounding.

Now, my apologies if I sound like an angsty teen or whatever, but I simply can't tolerate mean people, and I'm not going to silently sit aside while you all tear this guy apart.

Given the question mark, I can't tell whether you're saying you actually are or are absolutely not.

If you are, then what?

If you aren't, which seems more likely, we're still supposed to be a community. This place should be better than freshman year of high school.

The purpose of this thread has been Changed. It is now about everyone's freshman year of high school. (Hint: Apakenua, if you haven't made it there yet, don't post.) The highlight of mine was when the shy Asian girl in Bio vomited everywhere during the pig dissection lab.


I later dated her, actually. She was cute.

One of the great things about this community is it teaches you to ignore what people say about you. At least, for me it is. And while I'm not at six years here, I've been around long enough to know who's worth my time and who isn't. So if Pavs wants to leave, I'm not going to stop him. There's more to life than being well-liked in a community of maybe fifty active people.

I don't know, man, I find that I have much more in common with some people in this community than anyone I know in real life. Without this place, I'd be lonely as fuck. It's why I never successfully left all those times back when I actually was an angsty teen.

I hope Vyach does okay from here on out. He seems to still have the same basically negative outlook on life that he did when he came here, which is kind of ish. But he's a smart and generally well-intentioned guy and he's got a lot of life ahead of him.

07:03 <@scythe> Tanner: http://essaychan.blogspot.com/2008/07/r ... -file.html
07:03 <@scythe> That was written by an op in #insurgency back when #insurgency was a thing.
07:04 <@scythe> For those who had better things to do, #insurgency used to be an IRC channel where "Anonymous" attacks on websites were coordinated.
07:04 <@scythe> And Kakama, the author, basically deconstructs why the discourse in #insurgency is such a fucking mess.
07:07 <@GamingWolf> Right I just read it
07:07 <@krusch> I deleted ~20 bot threads last night.
07:07 <@krusch> We need mods.
07:07 <@scythe> Oh, definitely.
07:07 <@Tanner> Exactly what I was thinking, krusch.
07:07 <@scythe> It's not a criticism of that.
07:08 <@Tanner> I mean, this guy is just telling me what I already know.
07:08 <@GamingWolf> It was more about the functioning I think
07:08 <@GamingWolf> Well you have all the logic.
07:08 <@Tanner> Familiarity breeds contempt and power corrupts.
07:08 <@GamingWolf> Now
07:08 <@GamingWolf> You gotta address people one by one
07:08 <@Tanner> But there's no solution that scales to our problem.
07:09 <@Tanner> ... in that article.
07:09 <@GamingWolf> Elaborate
07:09 < Aidiera> Guys, why are we talking about this? /Who/ gets mod-ship is the more important question.
07:09 <@GamingWolf> >_o
07:09 <@Tanner> How can you decide who the right person is for the job when you don't know what the job is, Aidiera?
07:10 < Aidiera> if the job is just deleting bot threads, sign me up.
07:10 <@scythe> I was going to riff that into why Vyacheslav left.
07:10 <@GamingWolf> o_<
07:10 <@scythe> We have lots of mods. Maybe a few more than we need, and we have an explicit declination on the forums between "cool guys" and "everyone else".
07:10 <@scythe> Metanet is cliquey.
07:11 < Aidiera> But what else does it consist of. (Not including ninja's comments.)
07:11 <@scythe> Further, we -like- it that way. I met a lot of cool people because of this place being cliquey.
07:11 <@Tanner> Aidiera, that's exactly what I want to figure out.
07:11 < Aidiera> You want cliquey, try MOA.
07:11 <@GamingWolf> I'm pretty sure they put me on Cool Guys because not even I know.
07:11 <&gloomp> We should just hold a random drawing.
07:11 < Aidiera> Fuck if I know.
07:11 <@scythe> Aidiera: The cliques you don't know about are more exclusive than the ones you do
07:11 <@scythe> :3
07:11 <@GamingWolf> Random... er
07:11 <&gloomp> Ping pong balls in a steel cage, all that.
07:11 < Aidiera> Or make a poll on the forums.
07:11 <@scythe> Vyach... he just never involved himself in anything.
07:11 <@Tanner> Haha, I love that, scythe.
07:12 <@scythe> He was this dude, totally separate from any of the social dynamics of this website.
07:12 <@scythe> And so, when push came to shove, Vyach didn't have anyone to lean on.
07:12 <@GamingWolf> I thought were going by ability and personality... well fuck.
07:12 <@GamingWolf> *we were
07:13 <@scythe> Tanner: Hehehe. It's so true, too.
07:13 <@krusch> Metanet is cliquey.
07:14 <@krusch> The problem is, it's not hard to get into the clique.
07:14 <@scythe> That's not too much of a problem.
07:14 < Aidiera> I'm not in a clique.
07:14 <@krusch> So those who end up outside are kind of odd.
07:14 < Aidiera> Am I?
07:14 <&gloomp> But then there's subcliques.
07:14 <@scythe> Oh.
07:14 <@Tanner> Aidiera, #music
07:14 <@krusch> Yeah, you're in the clique.
07:14 <@krusch> But there are subcliques.
07:14 <@scythe> Yeah, there aren't many outside of at least one clique here.
07:14 < Aidiera> I don't go there, ever.
07:15 <@Tanner> You're there right now...
07:15 <@scythe> s/outside/who aren't inside/g
07:15 <&gloomp> I am in so many cliques.
07:15 <&gloomp> It's really ansurd.
07:15 <&gloomp> Absurd, also.
07:15 <@krusch> You are the Queen of cliques.
07:15 <@scythe> Aidiera: You've got the whole #auralsex thing going, or did.
07:15 < Aidiera> I still do.
07:15 <@krusch> I already ansurd your question!!!!!
07:15 ::: Kool [[email protected]] has quit [Ping timeout]
07:15 <@krusch> dassa clique
07:15 < Aidiera> But you're confusing channels with cliques.
07:15 <@GamingWolf> Hey... #Doomsday is my backup squad!
07:16 <&gloomp> No, you're confusing channels with something other than cliques.
07:17 <@scythe> The only person I can think of who Vyach particularly hung out with was ninja143.
07:17 <@scythe> But Vyach's friendship with ninja143... it was like a running joke or something.
07:18 < Aidiera> So now you're saying that if you don't fit in, you don't belong here?
07:18 <@scythe> If you don't get anything out of being here, your time is better spent somewhere else.
07:18 <@Tanner> It's not like this is a hard place to fit into!
07:18 < Aidiera> So, do you think Vyach got anything out of Metanet?
07:18 ::: KinGAleX [[email protected]] has quit [Ping timeout]
07:19 <@scythe> It's hard to say, Aidiera.
07:19 <@scythe> I mean, I've known the guy for like forever.
07:19 <@Tanner> I... he must have.
07:19 <@Tanner> Why would he stick around for so long otherwise?
07:19 <@scythe> And the thing that bothered me about him was that he seemed to have the same problems in his life when I first met him, five years ago, as he did when
he left.
07:19 < Aidiera> I just think he tried too hard to be an individual.
07:20 <@scythe> I hope he got something out of being here.
07:20 <@Tanner> That's what I said, scythe. This community grew up around him and he just didn't.
07:20 <@scythe> Yeah.
07:21 <@Tanner> Too bad you can't ask someone what they get out of the group without it sounding like you're asking what the hell they think they're doing here.

Me and Vyach are friends. We both love hockey, he helped me build his first computer.

My point was that he never fit in around here or agreed with the people here. So why is he quitting now? Nothing has changed. (Except that I'm only around when Yahoozy links me to a topic.)

He had already told me he disliked how things were being run here... I guess Yahoozy's single post was enough.

It always occurred to me that you don't expect people to leave. Sure, we've all attempted several times, but when it happens... you don't care.

There hasn't been an outcry for Vyacheslav to return, and I'd like to think that the two of us got on well - even though I don't know him... at all really.

I agree with him that I feel ridiculously repressed here; it's why I hardly ever use the forums. Also, a lot of mods are dicks. Just saying.

Hope you enjoy real life, Vyach. I've been told it's not all it's cracked up to be.
