Thats what I hoped, and if so, its a good critique on the type of people we assumed you were one of. But please, spell check your posts to make it obvious that the site is meant in irony? [Wink]

I don't recall. But the first time I heard that I took down my geocities site, shaved off my mullet, sold all my 'wife beaters' and finally got my Trans Am off blocks.

orion: the scary part is that there, indeed, ARE people out there that have the views that you pretend to have. I suppose that is exactly why I don't find that kind of humor funny. Trash talk, even if it's pretend or "for entertainment only" (think Rush Limbough), is still trash talk, and still offends me.

Sorry I don't have anything good to say about your site, but at least I respect you enough to give you my honest opinion.

Badmouthing regulars and our friends won't win the rest of us over.

Food for thought.

No, I find it offensive that you're making fun of people.

It's like this: there's plenty of garbage out there already in the world. Trash talk (and there's a reason it's called trash talk, because it's garbage!) is quite prevalent in today's society, especially on the Internet. Rap lyrics (and other lyrics too, actually) talk about killing and hate. There's too much hate, too much negativity already out there polluting our minds, our emotions, our spirits, and our world.

Your site just adds fuel to the roaring fire of negativity that is already burning. Moreover, your manorisms and actions here (i.e. calling people names, swearing profusely, and being generally rude) continue to add to the flame.

That is why I don't like your site, and that is why I don't like your behavior. I am certain, however, that under your pushy attitude and rude facade, there is a thoughtful, smart, and thought-provoking person. I would like to welcome that person to be a part of our community here at GeekCulture.

The rude facade that you are displaying now, however, is quite obviously not welcome here.

Dear lord, but you are a bloody moron...

Damned, man, shape up or ship out [Razz]

The man gave you an honest critique, stating his opinion, which was perfectly reasonable. It's not in any way funny to anyone but you to insult him for it.

We don't take to trolls too well here. You might want to start taking some of the advice you've been given so far.

Wow. That would be really hard to create. My eyes went bonkers just trying to read it!

Where do y'all find websites like this? Do they just appear or do your friends send you to them?

Ya know, I end up doing serious research, usually for college stuff... and I end up on sites like that. Simply put, I get really distracted really easily. No one forwards anything to me, I just go off on tangents.

I've got stuff bookmarked like "Homemade Hamster Toys," "Kibology," and "Dirk Gently's Holistic I-Ching Calculator." Why? Don't ask me [Razz] .
